EXPLANATION ABOUT SWOT ANALYSIS


STRENGTH
SPECIFIC PRODUCT :
FAIRMMEN Soap is not a common soap, it is specifically for Men. That too for
Teens and Men.
UNIQUE FEATURED PRODUCT:
Existing soap in market are uni-featured , but FAIRMEN soap has unique feature
of having Fairness and Anti-bacterial agents, Which differentiate the soap from
other soaps.
GOOD QUALITY:
Emami already have a brand value which will expose FAIRMEN as good quality
Soap which is a added strength to the product.
ASSURED TFM MORE THAN 65%:
The TFM for FAIRMEN is 65% and more, not less 65% , which no other soap in the
market as done. Thus it is a value added to the Product.
COST NOMINA:
The cost of FAIRMEN for 100 grams will be Rs36 which considered to be less
compared to all other MEN soaps in India.,
FOCUSING ON MIDDLE CLASS AND UPPER CLASS CONSUMERS:
FAIRMEN Soap is focusing on the middle class and upper class consumer which
kmaintain the Brand value and Brand Position Properly.
EMAMI ESTABLISHED BRAND:
Emami being a established brand in India especially for cosmetics, its easy for
Positioning and venturing into the market.

WEAKNESS
o ONLY FOR MEN:
FAIRMEN is a men product though so specific, it is not for women and kids which
is a weakness.
o MELTS QUICKLY:
FAIRMEN soap melts quickly as it is creamy soap which seems to be a
disadvantage with the soap.
o FOLLOWING PREMIUM PRICING STRATEGY:
We follow premium pricing strategy ( means high Quality Product with High Price)
as 100 grams costs Rs.36 though low compared to other men soap, it is not a soap
for all income class.
o PRODUCT NOT FOR ALL INCOME CLASS:
This soap is for Middle class and upper class men , its not for all either in product
wise and not in price wise at present. But may try extending for other class also
without degrading the brand value.

OPPURTUNITIES
NEW UNIQUE FEATURED PRODUCT :
As there is no such combination of soap for men already existing in market, this
soap has unique featured character in the market. This gets a lot of opportunity in
the market and among the customers.
COST-EFFICIENT PRODUCT :
Compare to the cost of all other men soap for fairness or beauty like Dove, Par
Avenue, Fiama Di Wills. FAIRMEN soap is less cost with High Quality.

SCOPE IN FOREIGN MARKET:


FAIRMEN soap has a lot of scope in the foreign market as no such product exist in
the market.
THREATS

this soap.

The competitors may reduce the price of the soap, which will compelle us to
reduce the price if the product.

OBJECTIVES AND ISSUES


OBJECTIVE :
The main objective of first year is to attain high profit , high market share with
sales volume of 10crores soaps for the fist year.
ISSUES:
FAIRMEN being a new featured product with combining both fairness and antibacterial agents and that too for men. More investment in Advertising the
product and its features are to be done. More investment in promotional
campaigns are to be done. This are the issues at present in the plan.

POSITIONING
Emami FAIRMEN soap is being campaigned in Advertisements as Purely a soap
for Men in the initial stage of release of soap in the market for few months. After
positioning as Men soap it must campaign as Why Fairness only for face why not
for our body by saying this soap has special features of both fairness and antibacterial for the body. Fairness for whole body will surely differentiate the soap
from others, as no soap as ever campaigned. Then we Campaign as Why to
waste money for soap and face cream separately when you get in one soap one
product-it should be named as Be brilliant.
DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY
Emami is a established Cosmetics brand in India. It has already well designed
Distribution Strategy for all its products in cosmetics and soap. As FAIRMEN being
a cosmetic Soap it can also be put in the existing business distribution strategy.
The dealer gets 80grams bar Rs.33 and the the retailer gets it for Rs.34 or 35,
finally the customer gets it for Rs.36.The Dealers are given extra compensation for
making bulk orders.
MARKETING RESEARCH
Using the research, we are identifying the specific features and benefits that our
target market segments value. Feedback from market tests, surveys, and focus
groups will help us develop the product quality. Brand awareness research will
help us determine the effectiveness and efficiency of our messages and media.

MARKET COMMUNICATION STRATERGY


FAIRMEN soap a new product into the market with Product Differentiation surely
needs a heavy attention in communicating the products through commercials
(Advertisements) in the market. As market communication players a major
product in every product especially FMCG.
Promotion Mix
The promotion mix follows 3 ways in the initial stage of product,
Advertisements:
Advertisement should focus on three target consumers Teens, Professional Men,
Sports Men.
Example : An Ad were a Teen comes home after school and looks his face in the
mirror and look the face complexion degraded, while his mother says there is a
party to attend. Then a Office professional also do the same way while, he
receives a message written meeting tomorrow morning anniversary he feels
disappointed. Then a dull complexion sportsman enjoying his won, goes dull when
he hear his friend saying about a Ad contract, so we say FAIRMEN solves all this
problems. We show them with fresh, bright and fair attending their function,
meeting and doing Ad.
Personal selling:
It should also be done by the sales department in visiting every house but in malls
cosmetic centers to increase awareness about the product and increase the sales.
Public Relations:
Public relations like social medias are also to be taken care to promote our
product and to make consumers understand the beneficial features of our soap,
through some attractive ways.
