differentiation. For Henna Natural Shampoo & Henna Natural Hair Color, our primary
consumer target is middle class to upper high class people. Then our target will be to
persuade people to spend little extra for the family hair protection by purchasing our product.
Our strategy is to make some opinion leader to introduce the product and we want to have the
positive word of mouth advertisement for our product.

Our secondary target market for the shampoo will be the business firms like the lower middle
class to low class. Our next target will be to produce more high quality product to attract the
rich firms by providing them a product of more price with more quality.

8.2 Positioning

Using product differentiation, we are positioning the Henna Natural Shampoo & Henna
Natural Hair Color which is the most effective for hair. We will focus on mainly on the
effectiveness of the shampoo & hair color along with the sweet smell. Our positioning
statement for shampoo will be “Doctor for your hair”. You will be happy by the sweet
smell of bally flower. We try our best to keep your hair dandruff free, long & strong, cooling,
smooth & shiner eith herbal product.” We will send this statement to the targeted customers.
Our target customer zone will cover all the customers. Those who use Dove are concerned
about high price and those use other shmapoo and color is concerned about their performance.
So, the customers can switch if they get a combined offer of service quality, price and new
flavor. We hope that our customers will prefer our product over the competitors’ product. We
will have totally different and most attractive packaging process.

people to use our product

In this stage of our product’s life cycle, sales are expected to be medium. On the other hand
cost per customer will be high. So, in this stage, we will use cost-plus pricing. Distribution
will be selective; to well-known mega shops and retailers. We will use heavy promotional
activities; advertising, personal selling and try to build product awareness among early
In this stage, both sales and profits of our product are expected to rise rapidly. To penetrate
the market, we will try to reduce cost per unit by producing more units. Growing number of
both customers and competitors are expected in this stage. We will try to maximize our
market share by building intensive distribution. In this stage, we will reduce the promotional
activities and will conduct market survey research to know consumer demand.

We expect to have our highest profit in this stage. Peak sales will occur as a result of low cost
per customer. Majority of the target consumers are expected to use our shampoo and hair
color in this stage. Our objective will be maximizing profits while defending market share. In
this stage, we will start to introduce our other brand that is “Active detergent power” with
feature of Ritha. We will set the price to match or beat competitors. Distribution strategy will
be more intensive, that is consumers will be getting our product more easily in nearby stores.
Advertising activities will stress brand differences and benefits. Finally we will increase
promotional activities to encourage brand switching.
In this stage of our product life cycle, both sales and profits will be declining. Cost per
customer will be low, as we will reduce our expenditures. We will also phase out weak items
that are unprofitable. Price will be cut off and promotional activities will be reduced to a
minimal level. In this stage, we will again go for selective distribution. Finally, advertising
activities will be reduced to level needed to retain loyal.

shampoo is 5ml-Tk 2.73, 100ml-Tk 60, 200ml-Tk 119, 400ml-Tk 230 and we set our selling
price 5ml-Tk 3, 100ml-Tk 85, 200ml-Tk 160, 400ml-Tk 300.

persons who will dedicate their most of the time to customers that want assistance when they
need it. The store is designed so a customer can look at our products. We provide service in a
way that no other competitive retail store can touch. It is one of our greatest assets and points

resources effectively and efficiently to continually serve its customers with satisfaction
through producing best quality product.
Our marketing research department found the opportunity to provide our customers a new
facility using Shampoo and hair color. The industry already contains some products. But we
found that there is no Shampoo product containing the smell of the Henna flavors. Our
marketing research department surveyed the market and found that there are many potential
buyers for our product which will satisfy their needs. So, we have the opportunity to enter the
market and fulfill the gap. We are going to offer the smell of Henna to Shampoo and hair
color with a very reasonable price so that customer can easily select it to use.
