Product and brand development Question 1 How would you monitor the marketing environment for launching a product in a target market ? Answer While talking about marketing environment, The marketing environment consists of all the factors and forces outside marketing that affect the marketing management’s ability to develop and maintain successful relationships with its target customers. Broadly classifying, we can divide marketing environments into two major categories namely •Internal environment •External environment Internal environment The internal environment refers to the company and its existing products, marketing strategies. It also includes the strengths of the company with regard to manufacturing abilities, distribution capacities, and marketing abilities. Internal resources should also be considered while formulating a marketing strategy. External environment External environment includes the competition, other rivals, the market conditions, customer's tastes and preferences. The list goes bigger than that. Anything can be included under competition. The existing rivals, the possible rivals, the product group rivals, and alterantive products to satisfy that particular need also come under external environment. The government policies including trade policies, restrictions, foreign trade policies also come under this. Availability of raw materials and even the customer mindset at that particular period of time can also be considered a part of the external environment. Further, external environment is sub divided into 1. Micro environment 2. Macro environment For most companies, the micro environmental components are: ? ompany suppliers ?marketing channel firms (intermediaries) ?customer markets ?competitors and ?Publics. The macro environmental components are thought to be: ?demographic ?economic ?natural ?technological ?political and ?cultural forces My product of study for this research is Reebok “easy tone shoe” Talking about reebok easy tone shoe, this shoe is being promoted in world market with a message that if u looking for a weight loss shoe then you need to consider the Reebok Easytone as part of your shopping list. Primarily this shoe is designed to target the fairer sex. With women going more health conscious these days and every lady wants to be in perfect shape, easy tone is designed to work more of your calf, thigh, and core muscles by giving you the feeling that you are walking on sand. This shoes focuses on working out the calves, gluteus maximus, and the hamstrings to enable to burn calories, tone muscles, and lose weight. This is the idea behind the Easytone. The designers of Reebok have engineered a shoe that gives the feeling that you are walking on a dry sandy beach. That is a nice idea, but there is some solid science behind this. Think about the last time you walked on a soft sandy beach, it was hard to keep your balance and you had to move around quite a bit to keep your balance. Reebok has developed their own proprietary technology to take advantage of the benefits of instability training here with this shoe. The Easytone features built in balance pods near the top of the sole and heel to give you a natural instability as you walk. This forces you to use all the muscles in your legs and abdomen and forces them to use more energy and to tone. Reebok has put these shoes to the test of university studies and found that people who regularly wear these shoes will improve their muscle tone. The Reebok Easytone features a mesh and leather smooth fit textile lining, an insole with speacilized cushioning, a midsole that contains their special DMX Max design, and a rubber traction outer sole. They offer this shoe in several different design groups including the Reiinspire, Flip, Go Outside, and some Custom Designs. The Reiinspire is your classic tennis shoe and comes in four basic color designs. If you are looking for a casual shoe then take a look at the Flip which is an open heel sandal. The Go Outside style comes in either plain black or white for people looking for a more classic look. They also offer several different custom designs which are they designer line. All of these shoes retail for around one hundred dollars. One thing that makes this shoe really stand out is the amount of research and testing that Reebok has invested in the Easytone. From a subjective standpoint they have done extensive wear testing over the last few years with hundreds of people. They gave these shoes to volunteers and asked for their feedback in a lower extremity muscle activation survey. The majority of these people responded they they could feel the majority of their leg muscles were working much harder while wearing these shoes. In this research, i will monitor the market environment in India while launching reebok easy tone shoe. Reebok international and its existing products Reebok International is a multinational company which designs and markets sports and fitness products, including footwear and apparel, as well as similar products for non athletic ("casual") use. Reebok has three major business groups: the Reebok Division, which is responsible for the Reebok brand, the Greg Norman Division, responsible for the Greg Norman brand, and the company's major subsidiary, the Rockport Company, responsible for the Rockport brand, as well as footwear sold under the Ralph Lauren brand. The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and competes primarily with Nike. manufacturing Considering manufacturing as one of the foremost component of internal environment ,The current manufacturing practices of the sneaker industry, Reebok, takes place throughout the globe. With the industry experiencing severe competition, and the product requiring intensive labor, firms are facing extreme pressure to increase their profit margins through their sourcing practices. The following paper will analyze the sneaker industry, while examining the multitude of viable manufacturing options, and critiquing their current manufacturing structure. Market share of Reebok in Indian shoe market As far as branded sports shoes are concerned, Reebok has a firm hold on Indian footwear market second to Nike. The industry is currently experiencing hyper competition , led by six main firms – Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Fila, Converse, and New Balance , with nearly $7 billion in revenues domestically. Nike is the industry leader, with a 47% market share, followed by Reebok, a distant second at 16%. This category is facing decreasing demand and the rising popularity of alternative footwear, resulting in more pressure than ever before to achieve high gross margins through effective global sourcing practices. Marketing strategy Reebok, as the second leading manufacturer of footwear, has domestic revenues of $1. 28 billion and a market share of 16%. They utilize a 100% outsourcing strategy and manufacture their products throughout Asia. They have created and implemented their own code of conduct for manufactures to follow, but have less infrastructure than other competitors like Nike, new balance, converse etc. across the globe to enforce it. They are facing scrutiny in regards to wage, overtime, and air quality issues are working to address these issues. However, their strength, the creation and distribution of a global brand, is allowed to foster under this manufacturing strategy, as they focus on their core competencies, and outsource their production. So when it comes to introducing a new product like Easy tone shoe in Indian market, the internal environment of the organization favours the launch . With all the major brands climbing out of the recession , each organization is ready with a new product or the other. Skechers shape ups and MBT shoes are the ones, which are designed and manufactured on same science as that of Reebok easy tone. Although , MBT and skechers already have made a mark in fitness shoes as far as international market is concerned but this is the first official launch of such shoes in India. Also,. Skechers and MBT don’t ave a good market share in india. Thus, on the front of fitness shoes, Reebok is not expected to face a very strong competition as long as its rival brands Nike and Puma come up with a similar idea. Further more, Reebok has been in Indian market for a long. Not only the elite class but now a days, reebok has made its image of reliable brand in middle class as well. Not only that reebok is manufacturing its products in india itself but also they have very strong distribution channels via distributors and retailers. Thus external environment is more or less is in the favour of new product. According to Indian apparel & shoes association, Statistics of January 2009 (December 2008 for reebok footwear) sales figures, India’s total sports shoes sale followed a 3. 2 percent decline in December with an even more severe 4. 7 percent in January, and was 13. 8 percent lower than in January 2008. This performance is the worst in recent recorded history and showcases the impact of the severe economic recession on the entire shoe industry, including the domestic shoe manufacturing sector. But when these statistics were compared to international market, they showed a favourable trend as international market was more affected by recession. According to American footwear association,sales went down by 3. 3 percent in January to 8. 9 percent lower than in January 2008. Sales condition continued to worsen in January, surging from 7. 2 percent to 7. 6 percent. Further more, india came out of recession ghost much early then other big giant nations. Thus it is nevertheless a great opportunity to launch such a product in Indian market. Market research for Reebok easy tone This market research was done for Reebok shoes and much emphasis was laid on newly launched Reebok easy tone shoe. OUTLOOK OF FOOTWEAR IN INDIA Introduction Indian people perceive shoes as one of the most important accessories to go with fashion rather than just for practical purpose. India is emerging as a, dynamic fashion country in the world. Many international footwear brands have entered india in last two decades. Since consumers are more demanding in style, it makes buyers more eager to source good taste and fashionable shoes from overseas in order to serve the market. India’s geographical and cultural proximity strengthens its intermediate role to assist foreign companies to enter the Indian market by various kinds of channels. The economic and business environment of India recovered in these two years. Such situations positively affect the imports, consumer spending and retail sales of clothing especially for high-end fashion items. This research targets to know the response of people towards Reebok shoes and much emphasis is laid on response of people towards newly launched Reebok easy tone shoes. Market segment Shoes market in India is diversified. Generally speaking, it could be divided into 2 segments. One is the upmarket / high-end / brand name shoes involved in high price bracket. These are usually high quality shoes, majority being manufactured in India itself or imported from Europe, e. g. Italy. For the upmarket group, they are the trendiest shoes and the shoes are usually made of high-quality materials, with more sophisticated product design, quality workmanship and are therefore more durable. With growing economy, Brand names influence Indian consumers from all walks of life. They are fascinated by brands, and many of them are even spending majority of their earnings on high-priced designer labels. Another segment is the local products. They are usually lower priced, trendy but with styles “copying” those from Europe. They are mainly products imported from China or other Asian countries like Taiwan or Indonesia. For this group of customers, shoes need to be able to withstand constant wear and tear, value for money, be functional and good for mix and match. These consumers choose the most price competitive merchandise regardless of brands. Nevertheless, they might also buy the brand named or shoes imported from Europe during winter and summer sale periods. In such diversified market environment, Reebok has been able to make a mark n consumers from both segments, i. e, customers from high end to customers of local manufacturers. Market trend Consumers in general have undoubtedly become more `value’ conscious. In fact, the shoes marketplace is complicated. As in Hong Kong there are some big importers e. g. Lane Crawford which has already exclusivity of many brands. Although there are different kinds of shoe retailers, wholesalers, agents in the distribution channels, the room of shoes business becomes limit. On the other hand, retailers become more diversified and they source from everywhere in order to increase the competitiveness. Buyers have more sources than before; they are not searching footwear and handbags only from Europe but also Japan, etc. Besides, they also set up buying offices overseas in order to purchase more unique products. For example, I. T. , one of the very uprising and leading multi-brand stores in these few years, source at least 50 worldwide labels from Europe and Japan each season to keep up with the hottest trend. The strong branding strategy captures the high social group who are rich and willing to spend for latest fashion. To counter such diversified market trend, reebok always has come up with range of shoes to match with the need of customers. With targeting the young people, Reebok , with its large range of sports shoes have met with customers satisfaction. With joggers priced at low bottom of 1200 rupees, reebok ensures that people who can not spend much on shoes can still have their product. On the other hand latest models like reebok pump and E A 7 Emporio Armani collection are designed to met with the requirements of elite class. Reebok, being a unisex brand, has always impressed both the sexes. Reebok easy tone is specially designed for women. Product features Reebok Easy Tone Features Easy Tone features several special design highlights that help tone the legs and rear end. •Special balance pods are worked into the shoe's design to provide a natural instability to help tone and sculpt the legs. •Interesting balance adjustments create the sensation of walking on sand. Also described as a stability ball function, these special shoes will encourage muscles to work as you walk and simply stand. •Uppers are molded from synthetic leather and a particular mesh called SmoothFit. Why Toning Sneakers? Toning sneakers are not meant to replace daily exercise or make you magically slim, but they can be a healthy option when you need a toning solution that requires less work. When swapped with leg toning sandals on your "time off," you'll never need to wear a pair of regular sneakers and sandals again! Advantages of Easy Tones Many people are curious about Easy Tone sneakers, and checking out reviews, commentary, and claims on these popular toning shoes can help you decide if they are right for you. Possible advantages of the shoes may include increased speed, motivation, and reduction in leg problems. •Reebok Easy Tones help wearers move their feet forward, enabling forward momentum and drive to finish longer runs faster. •Easy Tones effects of the shoes' muscle-stimulating shape may be noticed immediately, particularly for those who are not very athletic. •There is a possibility of reduction in leg vein problems and cellulite with extended use of these and other leg toning shoes. •The curved shape of leg toning shoes is a call to action, and will compel the wearer to move her feet. It may be difficult to balance in your shoes the first time you wear them, but that's part of the exercise routine. •Keep in mind that not all leg toning sneakers were made the same. Some of them were designed for walking, others for running, and others for casual wear (as in flip flops, sandals, and ballerina slipper styles). Reebok, also is curious and worried about its competitors, who also have the shoes on same basics. MBT and skechers shape ups are better than easy tone..?? Research done on this reveal following facts. How Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok EasyTones work: With a curved front and back, Skechers Shape Ups simulate the feeling of walking on soft ground, like sand. Reebok EasyTones are a totally different design, incorporating "balance pod technology. ” That means the Reeboks have mini inflated pods under the ball and heel of your foot. Both of these shoes are designed to create instability, making muscles work harder and hopefully giving you a firmer backside. After giving Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok EasyTones to some of our staffers, here’s what we found: Comfort battle: Skechers Shape Ups vs. Reebok EasyTones Overall, people liked the feel of Reebok easy tone. One said, "The rocking sensation was a little strange at first, but I got used to it pretty quickly. ” People also found skechers shape ups comfortable. Verdict: When it comes to comfort, both the Reebok EasyTones and Skechers Shape Ups get a good grade. They might take some getting used to, but both are a great fit. Style factor: Skechers Shape Ups or Reebok EasyTones? Interestingly and amazingly, people don’t want to wear these shoes to as far as style factor is concerned.. One tester thought the Skechers Shape Ups were passable – if you wore long pants. Another staffer felt differently: “They’re hideous in my book. ” With a matte plastic look on the top and sides of the EasyTones, Reeboks didn’t do much better. “As soon as I tried them on, I was getting a lot of crazy stares. ” Verdict: Trendy, they’re not. To sport either Skechers Shape Ups or Reebok EasyTones, you might have to sacrifice style for fitness. Working it: Do Skechers Shape Ups or Reebok EasyTones tone better? A group of people summed it up best when asked which one is better, “we definitely feel like easy tone have more range of motion than theShape ups. In general, our testers did not feel as much toning with the skechers. Verdict: When it comes to feeling the burn, Easy tone seem to deliver more. Value: Overall, are Skechers Shape Ups or Reebok EasyTones the better buy? A group of sample was more impressed withReebok easy tone. One staffer said, “I’d probably pay the $100 if I had an extra $100 to spend. ” Verdict: Our reviewers were put off by the steep price of both of these shoes, but if they had money to spend, they'd opt for the Reebok. On Viewpoints, you tended to agree with our staffers! You gave easy tone an overall score of 4/5 stars, and 78% of reviewers recommend them. One reviewer said they’re “the perfect exercise shoe. ” You also credit easy tone with supporting your lower back and building muscle strength. As forskechers? Seems like they aren’t on your radar yet. When you do have something to say about skechers, be sure to share your reviews with us. The experts weigh in on Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok EasyTones: What do fitness professionals think? We asked California State University (Long Beach) fitness professor Dr. Jan Schroeder her thoughts on the effectiveness of toning shoes, but she says the jury is still out. Toning shoes have released their own studies, though. Reebok claims that “women could generate up to 28% more butt muscle activation” by wearing Reebok EasyTones (compared to an ordinary gym shoe). But Dr. Schroeder isn’t convinced. She says that because Reebok's research only required participants to walk 500 steps, she feels their findings aren't strong enough to draw solid conclusions. Skechers makes similar claims about Shape Ups, citing that in a clinical trial, women “lost an average of 3. 5 pounds” over six weeks. But according to Dr. Schroeder, until more published research is released, it’s difficult to confirm the fitness benefits of toning shoes. Dr. Benno Nigg at the University of Calgary is conducting some of that much-needed research and has found that Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok Easy Tones do stimulate your muscles! But how much they tone is up for debate. According to Dr. Nigg, “Muscle toning is not defined in scientific terms. ” Instead, he studied how the Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok EasyTones activated muscles and moved the wearer’s center of pressure. The results? Dr. Nigg found that the center of pressure moved more for Reebok Easy Tones than for Skechers Shape Ups. What does that mean for you? On average, Easy Tones created more instability than Skechers, which could mean more toning for you. Price (This Will Surprise You) This is a biggie for most people who just do not have a lot of money to spend on shoes – especially a pair that really doesn’t translate well across different settings (Easy tone and Shape-Ups are not great office or formal footwear). The obvious winner here is Easy tone. Or is it? Since I am committed to giving you reliable information (and I really like to save money), I did a little math. The average price for a pair of Easy tone is $110. 00. ( 3300 rupees) The average price for a pair of shape ups shoes is $150. 00 ( 4500 rupees) There are less expensive designs (approx $110. 00), but the average is over $150. 00 (4500 rupees). So Easy tone cost much less than shape ups. Launched nearly an year ago, shape ups have its customers who claims to have skechers shoes for over a year. They are still as durable, springy, cushioned, and comfortable as when they came out of the box. Many reviews of Skechers Shape-Ups (too many) say that the sole begins to peel off after just a couple of months of wear. So, let’s look at those numbers again. Skechers Shoes for 2010 – Buy 1 pair in January that will last at least over a year. $150. 00 Skechers Shapes for 2010 – Buy 1 pair in January. Another pair in April (generously giving the shoe 4 months instead of what seemed more like a 3 month average). Another pair in August. Another pair in for the holidays. That would make it 4 x $110. 00 = $440. 00 Yikes! This is what newly launched Easy tone has to beat if it has to make a mark in market as far as fitness shoes are concerned. When researched at international level, Easy tone was a big success in its mother country UK. As the UK prime time television campaign ends its first week on British TV screens, the nation is already captivated by the apparent work out benefits of Reebok Easytone Shoes, helped by the display of a full 30 seconds of taught tight buttocks and perfectly sculpted legs. The UK adverts feature a plethora of flesh, filmed at waist height, and has been designed for maximum visual impact. Rather than focus on the technology of the shoes, the Reebok Easy tone shoes commercial clearly shoes what toning can do to the body. The campaign, which also features poster adverts up and down the country is widely believed to be the most expensive television campaign ever produced by a sports wear company, as Reebok attempts to become the number one lifestyle fitness shoe. The shoes offer a way of incorporating a more intense workout into any daily routine, whether jogging, walking or taking the kids to school. They appeal to busy women who have not got the time for a dedicated gym session, and offer more of a workout without the effort. The key to the extra toning lies in the soles of the shoes, which feature instability pods using the principles of the balance ball. Located in the major weight bearing areas of the foot; the ball, heel and toes, they create micro instabilities which caused the body to be put off balance slightly. As with a balance ball, the muscles of the legs have to work harder to correct the imbalance, adding more toning value with an increased level of muscle activity generated. Independent studies have demonstrated that Reebok Easytone Shoes will increase valuable toning exercise to the buttocks by a further 28%, with the hamstrings and calved receiving an 11% boost. Whilst perfectly toned legs and taut bottoms will certainly highlight the benefits of the Reebok Easytone shoes, putting the body off balance on every step could well cause foot and ankle problems. Reebok have countered this by adding extra stability to the shoe to prevent injury. The shoes feature a rigid medial post which prevents torque, which is increased by the pods on the soles. The medial post keeps Reebok Easytone shoes from twisting under the pressure of walking and running. The shoes also feature the Smoothfit design, which offers a seamless inner to remove all potential sources of abrasion, and most customers agree, that Reebok have produced one of the most comfortable shoes on the market. Parental advisory However as advised Reebok Easytone shoes are fine for walking and jogging to add more value to exercise, however Reebok do not recommend that the shoes be used in a gym workout, where the pods may actually work against the body and lead to injury. Provided that they are used for light exercise, where there are not heavy stresses placed on the feet, they are comfortable, supporting and will increase toning. Arch support is excellent, and the health of the feet will not suffer. If you suffer from foot conditions such as bunions, it would not be a wise move to choose the shoes, as the imbalance they create could have a detrimental effect on the condition. However if your feet are healthy, they offer a comfortable way to help get the legs and bottom in shape for summer, and are expected to be the lifestyle footwear sensation of 2010 Reebok EasyTone Trainers Q Few fitness trainers were asked the following questions regarding easy tone shoes and they came up with following responses to the asked questions.

Reebok Easytone Reviews It’s a little too early to tell if Reebok EasyTone shoes are up to the task of toning Indian legs. So over the pond to the States I virtually went to see how British women have been finding the comfort and toning properties of these babies. Asking women how their butt was doing and whether they were happy paying $100 may not get me very far. However most women do seem to agree that the shoes are effective.. One of the lady found the style to be rather limiting, but the butt crunching properties could be felt when going upstairs. As part of a general workout they did make her feel more tired. Plus there are a lot more styles on the market now. Another lady, found that her calves, hamstrings and butt were no better after using the trainers to get her from sofa to fridge for a week, however she plans to continue the regime for a while longer and hopes to be able to crack walnuts between her cheeks before too long. The very first day I took them out, I noticed right away that there was a very different feel to walking in them” and went on to say “I certainly feel they were worth every penny” after a couple of months use, claimed a sample. A random sample of men who had viewed the advert agreed that no matter what the price, they were a terrific buy and nothing bad could be said about them. When asked what they thought of the look of the shoes, no-one could remember and a second viewing of the advert was required after which they still found themselves unable to comment. The verdict appears to be, for those who are yet to start an exercise program, or who want an extra workout in the same time frame, they are an excellent buy. For anyone who already has a firm bottom and sculpted legs they are probably not worth the money. To men they appear are the best invention ever made by anyone in the world ever. So how do they work, and more importantly, do they work? It’s time for some science. Reebok Easytone shoes claim to be inspired by balance ball technology. I was not aware that a balance ball was that technologically advanced. No matter. The soles of the shoes feature mini balance balls in the toe, the ball of the foot, and the heel. Also known as instability pods, their function is to put you off balance slightly which causes the leg muscles to work overtime to correct the instability, bringing a wider range of muscles into play and generating more muscle toning activity. Since the corrections are quite small, it is almost unperceivable that extra work is being achieved. However those little pads are all that is required to give a 28% boost to the bottom and 11% more burn to the thighs and calves. Inside a Reebok Easytone you will find a silky soft haven for the feet. The seams have been moved out of the way so your feet will not get any abrasions and the additional padding in the sole make for one of the most comfortable trainers on the market.
