When it comes to a competition, Vision from Pran RFL launched another product with the same specification. Although both Conion and Vision’s Rice cooker does not vary a lot in terms of quality but the in term of price Conion rice cooker are cheaper. Although Conion is giving the same features but they are doing it at a much affordable price and with a one year warranty.
- The build quality and the look of this rice cookers are premium. You can feel the weight of a quality product at your first sight. In this price point it is hard to find a product like this in the market.
- It’s not just a rice cooker, you can cook meet, pudding, khichdi, brownies, cakes, etc.
- This cooker consumes only 700 Watt of electricity which is really low in terms of other competitor brands of the market.
- Since the cooker just introduced in the market, so it has really low popularity in compare of other brands. So it will be a challenge to sale the product initially
- It cannot be used without electricity. So in case of load shedding, consumer will not be able to cook.
- Conion is offering the most affordable price for the customers of rice cookers. So it can hit the highest selling product category once it is promoted to the target customers.
- The company is also providing a 6 months free service warranty and 1 year of product replacement warranty. So it will be a strong advantage for the buyers.
- Since Bestelectronics are the distributor of this products, they can assure 24 hours delivery in any corner of our country.
- Increase number of competitors are always a threat but since we are offering the best and affordable price it also can turn into a strength because customers can now compare directly with all the other brands in the market.
- The biggest threat is that over use of this product can increase the electricity bill but still it will be lower than the other brands because it is the most power efficient cooker.
- Increase sales – To maximize the profit the company have to increase the sales of our product
- Build brand awareness – The company have to build the brand awareness to let people know that this brand exists
- Grow market share – To dominate and control the market with our product we have to introduce new model of rice cookers with more and better features
- Launch new products – To sustain in the market we need to launch new product with new features and designs along or with the competitive brands
- Enhance customer relationships – Need to push out relationship with the customers by keeping in touch with them even after selling the product , it can be done by providing them promotion codes or discounts on their products
- Increase profit – A company cannot sustain in the market without a profit, so it needs to increase their sells volume and get involved into promotional activity only after calculating the profit limit
- Competition – People in Bangladesh are gradually switching their lifestyle to an automated system. So they have started using many electronic products to make their life easier and simpler. Focusing on these things many companies started to improvise their product chains with more and more electronic home appliances. One of them is Rice Cooker. In our Bangladesh market we can see lots of rice cooker brand has started to establish, such as Vision, Philips, Comet, Pride, etc. So to survive this rough competition Conion should focus more on its price and promotional activities.
- Achievability – It is the realism about achievability must temper the development of a marketing plan. The amount of money a business owner puts into a marketing budget will define the scope of a marketing plan, as well as the number of marketing pieces and communication channels employed to distribute those marketing pieces. Environmental factors impact the overall effectiveness of marketing efforts. The state of the economy, as well as competitor businesses and the strength of competitor brands all influence the achievability of a marketing plan. A business owner cannot expect marketing to make his businesses dominant in tightly contested markets, where mere parity or even second place marks a massive achievement.
Not only Conion tends to keep their price low but they also focuses on keeping their product quality high and thus it makes them the perfect contender in this market. They use Aluminum for their inner-bowl which is cheaper than stainless steel and also is a very good thermal conductor. They use a good quality plastic material instead of metal for the cooker’s body which makes them light-weighted and inexpensive yet durable for long use. BE 183A2BS has a thin stainless steel outer, wrapping its plastic body, with beautiful designs engraved in it which makes it more attractive. In short Conion is providing a long-lasting product with at a very affordable price.
Conion provides a high-quality specialty advertising product customized to its clients’ needs. The value of this product and service is reflected in its premium price. Conion should be sensitive to the price elasticity of its product and overall consumer demand.
Conion uses indirect marketing to distribute their product. Since its product is compact, lightweight, and nonperishable it can ship to multiple country with proper packing. Best Electronics is the direct distributor or retailer of Conion rice cookers. Best electronics is offering very flexible ways to buy their product, i.e., either you can use their online store or you can go to their showroom which is situated in most part of the city.
Marketing communication strategy:
To discover the potential consumers, promotion should be used to build the product awareness to customers to gain brand reputation, the simplest way is advertising.
