Unilever partners Ministry of Health to combat a (H1N1) pandemic The severity of the Influenza A(H1N1) pandemic was much cause for concern locally. At the height of the pandemic, Unilever ( Malaysia) Holdings Sdn. Bhd. was among the first private sector corporate citizens to step out and actively combat the spread of the virus. In a joint collaboration, the Ministry of Health Malaysia and Unilever initiated the Bersama Mencegah H1N1 national campaign at the IOI Mall in Puchong, Selangor on 25 July. The campaign was also supported by Guardian Malaysia. The campaign was launched by YB Dato Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Minister of Health, Malaysia, in the presence of Andre Rompis, Chairman of Unilever (M) Holdings Sdn. Bhd and Ms Soon Ai Lan, General Manager of Guardian Malaysia (GCH Retail (M) Sdn Bhd). At the launch ceremony, members of the public had first-hand experiences in learning proper hand-washing techniques, guided by the Glo-Germ tests provided by Unilever, including the proper seven-step hand-washing technique, as recommended by the Ministry of Health, Educational quizzes and games for adults and children also helped in infusing a fun way to learn these steps. Health professionals, including doctors and nurses, were also present at the event to demonstrate the correct procedures for the handling of thermometers and the wearing of face masks while also attending to queries by members of the public as they eagerly sought information regarding the A(H1N1) outbreak and preventive measures. Among the frequently-asked issues were concerns over discernable flu symptoms, advice on adopting the necessary self-abstinence and social-distancing measures as well as tips and travel-related queries regarding countries with a widespread outbreak of the disease such as the United States, the UK, Australia and Japan. The public also took the opportunity to purchase flu-prevention related products at special prices. It is very important that everyone is aware about the necessary preventive measures to counter the spread of Influenza A(H1N1) which has been skyrocketing drastically over the last few weeks alone as more people are contracting the virus via local transmission. It is also timely that the Malaysian public adopts proper hygiene habits as these simple steps can be easily incorporated into our daily hygiene routines, said YB Dato Seri Liow Tiong Lai in his speech at the launch ceremony, stressing that it is the responsibility of every Malaysian to play their part in helping the authorities to control and keep the spread of the virus to a minimum. The campaign will see several complementary initiatives being carried out on a nationwide scale. The Ministry of Health and Unilever will also be going on joint road shows to conduct hygiene talks at pre-schools and primary schools to educate children on the importance of cultivating proper hygiene habits in order to maintain good health. Hygiene packs and samplings of Lifebuoy soap will be distributed to the public while awareness posters illustrating proper hand-washing techniques will be displayed at public places such as LRT, Monorail and KTM stations as well as common Rest & Service areas in the country. In addition, the Lifebuoy team will also

4.0 SEGMENTATION A market is people or organization with needs or want and with the ability and the willingness to buy. A market segment is a subgroup of people or organizations sharing one or more characteristics that cause them to have similar product needs. At one extreme, we can define every person and every organization in the world as a market segment because each is unique. At the other extreme, we can define the entire consumer market as one large market segment and the business market as another large segment. Market segmentation is meant by the process of dividing a market into meaningful, relatively similar, and identifiable segments or groups 4.1 TYPES OF SEGMENTATION Segmentation is dividing up a market into a distinctive group that has common needs and will respond similarly to a marketing action. (Belch & Belch 2007, pp.45)By segmenting the group or society, it would help the marketers to conduct the best and accurate promotional strategies to earn the market interest. The segmentation that we have been studying, divided by four, which are geographic, demographic, psychographic and behaviouristic segmentation. (Belch & Belch 2007, pp.49) o Demographic segmentation is dividing the market on the basis of demographic variables such as age, sex, family size, education, income and social class. (Belch & Belch 2007, pp.47) Sunsilk shampoo will be using gender and age as the basis for segmentation. Sunsilk Shampoo are targeting female, starting from 21 to 25 years old. o Geographic segmentation is dividing market into different geographic units, include nations, states, counties or even neighborhoods. (Belch & Belch 2007, pp.45) Sunsilk shampoos are targeting Indonesia which has 33 provinces from Sabang until Merauke, and Jakarta city will be the basis for the marketers to conduct the promotional strategies. Psychographic segmentation is dividing the market on the basis of personality and/or lifestyle. (Belch & Belch 2007, pp.49) the market which are expecting to appear beautiful will be the target for the marketers, which according to VALS model, they are strivers which can be explained as trendy and fun loving, money defines success, concerned about the opinion of others (Hanley 2007) type of people Behaviouristic segmentation is dividing consumers into groups according to their usage, loyalties or buying responses to a product. (Belch & Belch 2007, pp.45)
