SUMMARY

MARKETING

Marketing is an integrated communications-based process through


which individuals and communities discover that existing and newly-
identified needs and wants may be satisfied by the products and services
of others.

Marketing is defined by the American Marketing Association as


the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating,
communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for
customers, clients, partners, and society at large. The term developed
from the original meaning which referred literally to going to market, as
in shopping, or going to a market to buy or sell goods or services.

Marketing practice tends to be seen as a creative industry, which


includes advertising, distribution and selling. It is also concerned with
anticipating the customers' future needs and wants, which are often
discovered through market research. Seen from a systems point of view,
sales process engineering views marketing as a set of processes that are
Inter connected and interdependent with other functions, whose methods
can be improved using a variety of relatively new approaches.

Marketing is influenced by many of the social sciences, particularly


psychology, sociology, and economics. Anthropology and neuroscience
are also small but growing influences. Market research underpins these
activities through advertising; it is also related to many of the creative
arts. The marketing literature is also infamous for re-inventing itself and
its vocabulary according to the times and the culture.

MARKETING MIX:

Marketing Mix contained 4 elements: product, price, place and


promotion.

• Product: The product aspects of marketing deal with the


specifications of the actual goods or services, and how it relates to
the end-user's needs and wants. The scope of a product generally
includes supporting elements such as warranties, guarantees, and
support.

• Pricing: This refers to the process of setting a price for a product,


including discounts. The price need not be monetary; it can simply
be what is exchanged for the product or services, e.g. time, energy,
or attention. Methods of setting prices optimally are in the domain
of pricing science.

• Placement (or distribution): refers to how the product gets to the


customer; for example, point-of-sale placement or retailing. This
third P has also sometimes been called Place, referring to the
channel by which a product or service is sold (e.g. online vs.
retail), which geographic region or industry, to which segment
(young adults, families, business people), etc. also referring to how
the environment in which the product is sold in can affect sales.

• Promotion: This includes advertising, sales promotion, publicity,


and personal selling. Branding refers to the various methods of
promoting the product, brand, or company.

These four elements are often referred to as the marketing mix,[3] which a
marketer can use to craft a marketing plan.
Branding

A brand is a name, term, design, symbol, or other feature that


distinguishes products and services from competitive offerings. A brand
represents the consumers' experience with an organization, product, or
service. A brand is more than a name, design or symbol. Brand reflects
personality of the company which is organizational culture.

A brand has also been defined as an identifiable entity that makes a


specific value based on promises made and kept either actively or
passively.

Branding means creating reference of certain products in mind.

Co-branding involves marketing activity involving two or more products.

Marketing communications

Marketing communications breaks down the strategies involved with


marketing messages into categories based on the goals of each message.
There are distinct stages in converting strangers to customers that govern
the communication medium that should be used.

Advertising

• Paid form of public presentation and expressive promotion of


ideas
• Aimed at masses
• Manufacturer may determine what goes into advertisement
• Pervasive and impersonal medium
Functions and advantages of successful advertising

1. Task of the salesman made easier

• Maximize sales
• Publicity
• Brand building
• Create awareness
• Persuade buyers
• Introduction of new product
• Enable market leadership
• To face competition
• To inform changes
• To counteract to competitors advertisement
• To enhance goodwill

Eight steps in an advertising campaign

• Market research
• Setting out aims
• Budgeting
• Choice of media (television, newspaper/magazines, radio, web,
outdoor)
• Choice of actors and players (New Trend)
• Design and wording
• Co-ordination
• Test results

Personal sales

Oral presentation given by a salesperson who approaches individuals or a


group of potential customers:

• Live, interactive relationship


• Personal interest
• Attention and response
• Interesting presentation
• Clear and thorough.
Sales promotion

Short-term incentives to encourage buying of products:

• Instant appeal
• Anxiety to sell

An example is coupons or a sale. People are given an incentive to buy,


but this does not build customer loyalty or encourage future repeat buys.
A major drawback of sales promotion is that it is easily copied by
competition. It cannot be used as a sustainable source of differentiation.

Marketing Public Relations (MPR)

• Stimulation of demand through press release giving a favorable


report to a product
• Higher degree of credibility
• Effectively news
• Boosts enterprise's image
Customer focus

Many companies today have a customer focus (or market orientation).


This implies that the company focuses its activities and products on
consumer demands. Generally there are three ways of doing this: the
customer-driven approach, the sense of identifying market changes and
the product innovation approach.

In the consumer-driven approach, consumer wants are the drivers of all


strategic marketing decisions. No strategy is pursued until it passes the
test of consumer research. Every aspect of a market offering, including
the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs of potential
consumers. The starting point is always the consumer. The rationale for
this approach is that there is no point spending R&D funds developing
products that people will not buy. History attests to many products that
were commercial failures in spite of being technological breakthroughs.

A formal approach to this customer-focused marketing is known as


SIVA (Solution, Information, Value, and Access). This system is
basically the four Ps renamed and reworded to provide a customer focus.

The SIVA Model provides a demand/customer centric version alternative


to the well-known 4Ps supply side model (product, price, place,
promotion) of marketing management.

Product → Solution

Promotion → Information

Price → Value

Placement → Access
Product focus

In a product innovation approach, the company pursues product


innovation, then tries to develop a market for the product. Product
innovation drives the process and marketing research is conducted
primarily to ensure that profitable market segment(s) exist for the
innovation. The rationale is that customers may not know what options
will be available to them in the future so we should not expect them to
tell us what they will buy in the future. However, marketers can
aggressively over-pursue product innovation and try to overcapitalize on
a niche. When pursuing a product innovation approach, marketers must
ensure that they have a varied and multi-tiered approach to product
innovation. It is claimed that if Thomas Edison depended on marketing
research he would have produced larger candles rather than inventing
light bulbs. Many firms, such as research and development focused
companies, successfully focus on product innovation. Many purists doubt
whether this is really a form of marketing orientation at all, because of
the ex post status of consumer research. Some even question whether it is
marketing.

• An emerging area of study and practice concerns internal


marketing, or how employees are trained and managed to deliver
the brand in a way that positively impacts the acquisition and
retention of customers (employer branding).
• Diffusion of innovations research explores how and why people
adopt new products, services and ideas.
• A relatively new form of marketing uses the Internet and is called
Internet marketing or more generally e-marketing, affiliate
marketing, desktop advertising or online marketing. It tries to
perfect the segmentation strategy used in traditional marketing. It
targets its audience more precisely, and is sometimes called
personalized marketing or one-to-one marketing.
• With consumers' eroding attention span and willingness to give
time to advertising messages, marketers are turning to forms of
permission marketing such as branded content, custom media and
reality marketing.
• The use of herd behavior in marketing.
MARKETING STRATEGY

A marketing strategy is most effective when it is an integral component


of firm strategy, defining how the organization will successfully engage
customers, prospects, and competitors in the market arena. Corporate
strategies, corporate missions, and corporate goals. As the customer
constitutes the source of a company's revenue, marketing strategy is
closely linked with sales. A key component of marketing strategy is often
to keep marketing in line with a company's overarching mission
statement.

Basic theory:

1. Target Audience
2. Proposition/Key Element
3. Implementation

MARKETING PLAN

A marketing plan is that which details the necessary actions to achieve


one or more marketing objectives. It can be for a product or service, a
brand, or a product line. Marketing plans cover between one and five
years.

A marketing plan may be part of an overall business plan. Solid


marketing strategy is the foundation of a well-written marketing plan.
While a marketing plan contains a list of actions, a marketing plan
without a sound strategic foundation is of little use.
INTRODUCTION

INDIAN AIR CONDITIONER INDUSTRY

The Indian AC market size is Rs 2,790 crore comprising the


household and commercial segments. The market is currently at a
nascent stage and shows tremendous promise to grow. However,
despite the reasonable growth in the last few years, the growth
potential has not been entirely captured. The key bottleneck to
growth is the low affordability of ACs. This is clearly evidenced in
the Chinese market where substantially low price points (less than
50% of Indian retail prices) have driven penetration of ACs.

In order to capture the growth potential, a substantial reduction in


price is required. The primary cause for the high prices is the high
incidence of indirect taxes, excise duties and import duties on the
product category : accounting for close to 45% of the MRP. In
particular, the abnormally high excise duty of 32% is a major
deterrent to growth.

With government support in duty and tax rationalization, the AC


market can grow very rapidly over the next 5 years to as much as
Rs. 14,000 crores by 2007. Reducing excise duties, indirect taxes
and import duties is a win-win-win solution for the government,
players and consumers.

In 2008-09, the estimated total market size for air-conditioning


in India was around Rs. 10,250 crores. Of this, the market for
Central air-conditioning, including central plants, packaged/ducted
Systems and VRF systems was about Rs. 5750 crores, while the
market for room air conditioners comprised the balance
Rs. 4500 crores. The commercial air-conditioning segment
catering
to corporate and commercial customers amounted to around
Rs. 8000 crores.
During the year, the economic slowdown coupled with the
liquidity squeeze affected certain segments such as retail and
builders. Project expansion plans in the IT/ITES segment were
also delayed mainly due to the uncertain impact of the US
recession on this segment. However, the air-conditioning market
witnessed significant growth in segments such as
hospitality, healthcare and education. In addition, infrastructure
segments such as airports, power plants and metro rail
were unaffected by the economic downturn and project plans were
on track.

There is a huge unrealized potential for:


 Preserving food and dairy products
 Improving food distribution
 Reducing cost of food to the common man

There are different types of air conditioner which is customized


according to its application and uses. These are:

SEGMENTS APPLICATION

Window ACs Homes and SOHO

Mini Split ACs Homes, offices, shops, showrooms

Ducted Split and Pacakaged ACs Commercial establishments

Chillers and Central Plant Industrial, institutional and large


commercial

BLUE STAR INDIA


HISTORY

Blue Star was founded in 1943, by Mohan T Advani, an entrepreneur of


exemplary vision and drive. The Company began as a modest 3-member
team engaged in reconditioning of airconditioners and refrigerators.
Within three years, the Company secured the agency for US-based
Melchoir Armstrong Dessau's airconditioning equipment. Shortly after,
the Company was selected by Worthington, the US leader in
airconditioning, as its India based partner - these were the first of
numerous foreign associations to follow.
An expanding Blue Star then ventured into the manufacture of ice candy
machines and bottle coolers and also began the design and execution of
central airconditioning projects. Then came the manufacture of water
coolers. In 1949, the proprietorship company set its sights on bigger
expansion, took on shareholders and became Blue Star Engineering
Company Private Limited.
Ever since, there has been a constant and profitable growth. Blue Star
diversified and took up agencies for Material Testing Machines and
Business Machines. The export arena beckoned and the Company began
exporting water coolers to Dubai, where in fact, 'Blue Star' soon became
the generic name for water coolers.
The sixties and the early seventies witnessed Blue Star continuing to
expand and thrive. A team of dedicated professionals aided Mohan T
Advani in ever furthering his vision of a profitable company dedicated
to its ideals of professionalism and success. Employee strength crossed
the 1000 mark and the company went public in 1969 to become Blue
Star Limited, as it continues to be called today.
In 1970, the Company took up the all-India distributorship of Hewlett-
Packard products, a business relationship which continues today and has
grown ever stronger through the years. As the Company's reputation for
delivering the goods in the most challenging of airconditioning projects
grew steadily, the early seventies saw a series of prestigious projects
being entrusted to Blue Star - skyscrapers such as Air India Building,
Express Towers, the Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai, apart from several others.
Revenues touched the Rs. 10-crore mark and staff strength doubled to
exceed 2000.
As its Indian presence reached greater heights, the Company began
building determinedly upon its existing overseas presence, Blue Star set
up a joint venture with Al Shirawi in Dubai and went on to execute
some outstanding projects in Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. To
complement its air-conditioning projects and undertake turnkey
industrial projects, an Industrial Division was set up in 1978.
Always moving with the times and ever on the lookout for business
possibilities, Blue Star next set up a software export unit at Seepz,
Mumbai in 1983. Then came associations with more global leaders - a
collaboration with York International of USA for central airconditioning
equipment and joint ventures with Motorola and Yokogawa.
In 1984, Ashok M Advani & Suneel M Advani, the sons of Mohan T
Advani, took over the reins of the Company, after spending nearly 15
years within the Company steadily climbing up the ladder. A renewed
thrust was placed on the company's core business areas - airconditioning
and refrigeration and the distribution of professional electronics
equipment - and the company emerged a market leader in these focus
areas.
The nineties witnessed India entering an era of economic liberalisation
and an upsurge in competition as the dynamic business scenario
attracted the world's most forward-looking corporations. It was time to
re-look at existing business competencies, re-engineer those that were
obsolete and forge ahead in acquiring new business competencies. Blue
Star was more than equal to the challenge and expansion continued
unabated.
In keeping with this focus, an advanced manufacturing facility was set
up at Dadra in 1997, in technical collaboration with Rheem, USA, to
enhance manufacturing competency. Today it bears the distinction of
being regarded as the best such plant India-wide. The dealer network
was strengthened and expanded to bring products within easy reach of
every customer.
With the advent of the much awaited new millennium in 2000, the
action continued. The software unit was spun off into a separate
company, Blue Star Infotech Ltd., the export of airconditioning products
from the Dadra factory began and contract manufacturing for local and
foreign brands commenced. A new Corporate Vision was developed -
"To deliver a world-class customer experience". Every employee is
determined to follow this vision and keep their organization a
competitive and forward-looking one.
Blue Star crossed the Rs. 500 crore milestone in 2000 and the Rs. 600
crore milestone in 2002-03. With the boom in construction activity and
increased infrastructure investments, the Company leveraged its
leadership position to grow aggressively. In the following three years,
the Company nearly doubled its turnover, clocking Rs 1178 crores in
2005-06.
Even more than size, Blue Star enjoys an enviable reputation as an
ethical corporation, ever mindful of its obligations towards customers,
shareholders, dealers, business partners, employees and the environment
in which it operates.

PRODUCT PRESENTATION
PRODUCT PROFILE
Air conditioning is dfined as a process , which
cools,cleans,circulates,freshens and controls its moisture
contents simontaniously. There are two types of heat
Sensible heat : sensible heat is any heat that
rises the temperature but not th moistur content of the
substance. this is the regular and familiar heat that we
experience every day.
Latent heat: latent heat is that heat requried
transforming a liquid to vapour. Latnt heat plays an
important part in refrigating and air conditioning. It
explains the principle of refriding and also is a coponent
of heat load. Human beings generate lateent heat by way
of moisture on their skin. This perpiration requires to be
dried; therefore a chaqnge in its state from liquid to
vapour is required.
What we say about what the air conditione
r does
discomfort
“it is too warm” the air is cooled
“it is too cold” the air is warm
“it is too humid” miosture in the air is removed
“its too stuff” conditioned air iis circutated gently
“it is dusty the air is filtered
COMFORT PARAMETERS IN INDIA
Most of our cities the ambident condition are quiet
uncomfortable. In summer the tempreature are high and
these temprature can support more moisture, the air is
humid. The dsired comfort tempreature and relative
humidity for india in summer is 25 degree centigrade and
55% relative humidity.
AIR CONDITIONING CAPACITY
The TON in refredigation and air conditioning is a unit
indicating a certain quantity of heat .the quantity of heat
is different from tempreature ,which only says about
how hot the substance is, but hhow much hat it contains.
The two most common unit for stating the quantity of
heat is British Thermal unit (Btu) and calorie (Cal).
The british thermal unit is the quantity of heat neeeded to
raise the tempreature of of 1lb of watr by one degree
Fahrenheit.
The calorie is the metric unit used to raise the
tmpreature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree celcius. Since
a calorie is very small measurement ,it is pratical to use
the thousand caloris as the unit for air conditioning and is
expressed as Kilocalories (K Cal).
1 Ton refregation = 12000 Btu/hr or 300K Cal/Hr.

MARKETING PROCESS
The following process is followed:

 Study the competition: SWOT (strengths, weakness,


opportunities, threats) analysis is used to study the competition
in corporate world. This helps to know the position of the
organization.

 Target the ideal customer: To successfully launch the


product or service with minimum financial outlay, it's essential
to focus exclusively on the prospects we believe are most likely
to purchase from us. These may be customers who are currently
buying something similar and will appreciate the additional
features your new product or service provides.

 Create a unique value proposition: At this stage, we


should have a clear understanding of what we must offer in
order to stand apart from the competition and who will want to
take advantage of the offer.

 Defining marketing strategy and tactics: Next, step is


to choose a right sales and marketing channels. There are
various channels like vertical, horizontal and multi marketing
channels.

 Testing the concept and marketing approach: It's best


to examine the product or service bundle plus marketing
message and marketing materials. Only after testing is
complete, we can proceed to the final creation of marketing
tools and materials.

 Launching the product: Public relations often play a vital


role in the launch of a product or service. First make sure that
the product or service is completely ready and available for
purchase in order to maximize returns from the coverage to be
received.

 Product life cycle: The introduction and education phase of


the product or service launch will need to be updated as product
or service matures. If monitoring is done on marketing results
carefully, it will result in diminishing returns that will indicate
when it's time to revise the product or service.
