These are areas where the company offers unique value, and they can be used to inform marketing messages.
The map will also reveal overcrowded segments, which signify heightened competitive threat. For a new start-up, a market map can be used to identify a viable gap in the market—a good place to position a company when it is struggling to establish itself.
Established businesses can use market mapping combined with SWOT analysis to discover opportunities and decide whether the company has the strengths to exploit one of those opportunities.
Market analysis such as this may, for example, have helped luxury Singaporean tea shop TWG Tea to identify an opportunity in the market. Internal focus As a company grows it might choose to draw up a map including just its own products.
Analysis of the results can help identify any overlap between different products informing decisions about which products to drop, and which to concentrate research and development and marketing spend, for example. The key to successful market mapping is market research.
The challenge for management is to use the map, and knowledge of internal strengths and weaknesses, to plan the appropriate strategic response.
Both SWOT analysis and market mapping allow a company to better understand itself, its market, and, most importantly, the competition. Equally, being aware of weaknesses can help avoid costly strategic mistakes, such as producing overly ambitious products or making an entry into a crowded market position.
An appreciation of the opportunities and threats of the market, and the relative and shifting positions of competing products, is essential to long-term successful strategic planning.
To plan where you are going, it helps to know where you are—and where your competitors are too. He also undertook research to identify why corporate planning failed, by holding interviews with more than 5, executives at over 1, companies.
The now-ubiquitous acronym SWOT was born. Most markets are increasingly global, increasingly crowded and, therefore, increasingly competitive.
Unique Selling Propositions Faced with competition, the strategy for most companies is to differentiate. To achieve success, especially in its early stages of growth, a company must stand out Only then will companies truly stand out in the market.
Enduring difference can only be maintained through a Unique Selling Proposition. But difference can be easily copied by competitors. The concept was developed by US advertising executive Rosser Reeves in the s to represent the key point of dramatic difference that makes a product salable at a price higher than rival products.
Tangible USPs are hard to acquire and hard to copy, which is what makes them unique. Companies must distinguish their product or service from the competition at every stage of production—from raw material extraction to after-sales service.
Products such as Nespresso coffeemakers and Crocs footwear, and service providers such as majority Asian-owned hotel group Tune Hotels, are all heavily differentiated, each having a strong USP.
Differentiation often does not remain a point of difference for long. With functional uniqueness being so elusive, marketing guru Philip Kotler suggested that companies focus instead on an Emotional Selling Proposition ESP.
In other words, that the task of marketing is to generate an emotional connection to the brand that is so strong that customers perceive difference from the competition.
For example, while the design and functionality of Nike and Adidas sneakers are distinct, the differences are so small that they amount to only a marginal difference in performance. All goods and services are differentiable.
The product itself—the iPod portable music device—was functionally little different than existing MP3 players, but combined with the iTunes software to create a unique customer experience. Standing out One company that has achieved uniqueness is the British fashion label Superdry, which has grown to include more than stores in Europe, Asia, North and South America, and South Africa.
The business started life in university towns across the UK, a positioning that gave the brand a youthful appeal. Most differentiation strategies involve targeting one segment of the market; Superdry chose to target them all. Maintaining uniqueness As many companies discover, popularity can be the enemy of difference.
While Superdry clothing has become increasingly ubiquitous around the world, its uniqueness and difference have declined.1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ 1/9/ 1/28/ Die ultimative chronologische Wissenschafts-Site von Dr.
