CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION

Advertising is an art not a science. Effectiveness of which cannot be measured with a mathematical or empirical formula some advertisers argue that advertising efforts go to waste, but every advertiser is keenly interested in measuring or in evaluation of advertising effectiveness. Testing for the effectiveness of advertisement will lead advertisement testing must be done either before or after the advertisement has done in the media. It is of two types, protesting which are done before the advertisement has been launched and one is referred to as cost testing which is done before the advertisement has been launched and one is referred to as cost testing which is done after launching the advertising campaign. The basic purpose of advertising effectiveness is to avoid costly mistakes, to predict the relative Strength of alternative strength of alternative advertising strategies and to increase their efficiency. In measurement of advertisement effectiveness feedback is always useful even if it costs some extra expenditure to the advertiser. The objectives of all business are to makes profits and a merchandising concern can do that by increasing its sales at remunerative prices. This is possible, if the product is widely polished to be audience the final consumers, channel members and industrial users and through convincing arguments it is persuaded to buy it. Publicity makes a thing or an idea known to people. It is a general term indicating efforts at mass appeal. As personal stimulation of demand for a product service or business unit by planting commercially significant news about it in a published medium or obtaining favorable presentation of it upon video television or stage that is not paid for by the sponsor. On the other hand, advertising denotes a specific attempt to popularize a specific product or service at a certain cost. It is a method of publicity. It always intentional openly sponsored by the sponsor and involves certain cost and hence is paid for. It is a common form of nonpersonal communication about an organization and or its products idea service etc. that is transmitted to a target audience through a mass medium. In common parlance the term publicity and advertising are used synonymously.

What is advertising?
The word Advertising has its origin from a Latin word Adventure which means to turn to. The dictionary meaning of the word is to announce publicity or to give public concerned to a specific thing which has been announced by the advertiser publicity in order to inform and influence them with Reread them or pass them on to other. Some magazines have prestige value. The marketer can cover national or large regional markets at a low cost per contract (per individual reached). Magazines generally offer high-quality printing of advertisement. Simply stated advertising is the art "says green." Advertising is a general term for and all forms of publicity, from the cry of the street boy selling newspapers to the most celebrate attention attracts device. The object always is to bring to public notice some articles or service, to create a demand to stimulate buying and in general to bring together the man with something to sell and the man who has means or desires to buy". Advertising has been defined by different experts. Some of the quoted definitions are: According to American Marketing Association Advertising is any paid form of nonpersonal paid of presentation of ideas goods or services by an identified sponsor. Indian marketing association has defined advertising as any paid form of nonpersonal presentation and promotion of ideas, goods or services by an identified sponsor. The medium used are print broadcast and direct. Stanton deserves that "Advertising consists of all the activities involved in presenting to a group a non- personal, oral or visual openly, sponsored message regarding a product, service, or idea. This message called an advertisement is disseminated through one or more media and is paid for by the identified sponsor.

Advertisement carries:
In business world the terms in mainly used with reference to selling the product of the concern. The advertising, as Jones defines it is "a sort of machine made mass production method of selling which supplements the voice and personality of the individual salesman, such as manufacturing the machine supplements the hands of the craftsman." It is thus a process of buying/sponsor/identified media space or time in order to promote a product or an idea. From a careful scrutiny of the above definition, the following points emerge: Advertising is a paid form and hence commercial in nature. This any sponsored communication designed to influence buyer behavior advertising. Advertising is nonpersonal. Unlike personal selling, advertising is done in a non- personal manner through intermediaries or media whatever the form of advertisement (Spoken, written or visual). It is directed at a mass audience and not directed at the individual as in personal selling. Advertising promotes idea, goods and services. Although most advertising is designed to help sell goods, it is being used increasingly to further public interest goals. Advertising is identifiable with its sponsoring authority and advertiser. It discloses or identifies the source of opinions and ideas. Advertising thus is: 1. Impersonal 2.A communication of ideas. 3. Aimed at mass audience 4.By a paying sponsor. The two forms of mass communication that are something confused with advertising or publicity and propaganda. If we eliminate the elements of the "paying sponsor" (The paid requirement) we would have the element of publicity left: For publicity is technically speaking, advertisement without payment. In a similar manner. If we eliminate the requirement of an "identified sponsor", the resulting communication is propagandistic. It is important for us to emphasize that advertising may involve the communication of ideas or goods of service. We are all aware that advertising attempts to sell goods and services. But we may overlook the more important fact that it often sells ideas.

Various national & multinational firms are engaged in soft drink market due to increase in its demand day by day. As far as INDIA soft drink market is concerned there are major companys engaged having a big completion to capture the soft drink market are namely Coca-Cola &Pepsi. While Campa Cola & many local colas still notice in the Indian Market. Pepsi Cola attacked Coca-Cola before World War II. Coca Cola dominated the

12

American soft drink industry, Pepsi cola was a drink less to manufactures & with a less satisfactory taste then Coke. Where as Coca-Cola major selling point was more drink for the same price and Pepsi emphasized on advertising. During World War II Pepsi & Coke both enjoyed increased sale. After the war Pepsi sale was started to fall relatively to Coke, resulting the Coca-Cola had starting to click the Market share. A number of factory contributed to Pepsi problem were poor image, poor taskforce, poor quality control etc. At that point Alfred.N.Steeler came to the presidency of Pepsi cola with a great reputation for merchandising. He and his staff recognized that the main hope lay transforming Pepsi from a cheap imitator of Coke into a class on soft drink manufacturer. By 1955 all Pepsis major weakness had been overcome, resulting sales had climbed substantially. These actions from 1955 to 1960 led to a considerable sales growth for Pepsi. In India another company engaged in soft drink market is Coca-Cola. It is one of the most widely known, accepted and admired trademarks of the world. Coca-Cola was their in India till 1977, when the Indian Government banned it due to strong resentment against multinational companys Coca-Cola was re-launched again in India in September 1993 at HATHRAS near Agra.

Coca-Cola marked its re-launching with acquiring five Parley drinks viz. Thumps Up, Gold Spot, Limca, Citra, Maaza, Soda. Soft drink industry is one of the fastest growing industries in India. The basic idea behind the rapid growth of this industry is due to following reasons: 1. The great corporate war between Coke & Pepsi, who left no stone unturned, for monopolize the Soft Drink market. 2. 3. The basic ideology of these two giants is to promote soft drinks as a food item in The long hot summers in India have increased the consumption of soft drinks. India hold

SOFT DRINK MARKET INDIAN SCENARIO:


13

India soft drink industry is witnessing a boom time. Its growth rate is around 20% with which such growth rate, volume could reach billion creates within 10 years. There major multinational companies are fighting to grab a major chunk of business from Indian markets. These three coca-cola, Pepsi, Cadbury. All of these companies have seen an enormous potential in this country. Consequently, by world standard, Indian per capita consumption of soft drinks is still very low. Therefore these soft drinks grants feel that fire capita consumption can only grow up. Soft drink industries has already seen and estimated sale of around 240 million crates higher than last years sale of 204 million in 1998. The Main reason for such a high growth rate heightened competition between coca-cola and Pepsi, Cadbury, bring a new entrant is for behind.

There are about 4, 80,000 soft drinks retailers in India and their numbers are increasing day today. This actually means that there is just one soft drink retailer on a population of 37, 600, which is far below the international standard. Whereas Philippines has one soft drink retail counter over a population of 150 people i.e. 4, 00,000 outlets on a population of 60 million.

In CocaCola camp, the idea of competition has not come from Pepsi, but from the other beverages such as Tea, Coffee, Nimbu Pani, Water etc. Pepsi is quite aggressive in its approach to Indian consumer. They are desperately working in the strategy to be winner side in the hot cola war between two big barons. According to Pepsi philosophy its the madness that encourages executives to thin to conjure up those creative tactics to knock the fizz out of their competition.

They have been going with aggressive marketing their advertisement to endorse their brand, the role model for its targeted consumer the teenagers. They have increase the fizz in the market price by Introducing the dispensers called fountain Pepsi and been enjoying a lead over its rival three. Coca-Cola on the other hand, has been working on the saying skew and stead with race, side by side retailing to the every move of its competitor. They have produced the shield of Thumps Up with a handsome market share in India soft drink market. Countering Pepsi, international commercial that used two chimpanzees to coke a snack at coke, Thums Up came with the aid line, Dont be Bandar, taste the thunder also Thumps Up has been positioned now very near to that of young in age of Pepsi and giving it tough time. Everything has been put on fire by these cool merchants if coke got the status of the Official drink of Wills World Cup, Pepsi blushed as Nothing official about it. As Thumps Up projected as Saare Jahan Se Achcha. Pepsi was passionate enough with Freedom to be. When Thumps Up came up with Thunder Blast, the other one offered, Pepsi Stuff Card.

OVERVIEW OF PEPSICO INDIA PepsiCo in India:


PepsiCo has established its business operations in India in 1989 and has grown to become the one of the countrys leading food and the beverage companies. One of the largest multinational investors in the country, PepsiCo has established a business, which aims to serve the long term dynamic, needs of Indian consumers. Initially PepsiCo has joint venture with the Punjab government-owned Punjab. Agro Industrial Organization and the Voltas India Limited. This joint venture marketed and sold Lehar Pepsi until 1991, when the use of foreign brands was allowed, PepsiCo bought out its partners and ended the joint venture in 1994. Others claim that firstly Pepsi was banned from the import in India, in 1970, for having refused to release the list of its ingredients and in 1993, the ban was lifted, with Pepsi arriving on the market shortly afterwards. These controversies are a reminder of "India's sometimes acrimonious relationship with the huge multinational companies." Indeed, some argue that PepsiCo and Coca Cola

24

Company have "been major targets in part because they are well-known foreign companies that draw plenty of the attention." In 2003, the Central for Science and Environment, a non governmental organization New Delhi, said that aerated waters produced by soft drinks manufacturers in India, including multinational giants PepsiCo and tested products included Coke, Mirinda, 7Up, Thums Up, Fanta, and Sprite. CSE found that the Indian produced Pepsi's soft drink products had 36 times the level of pesticide residues permitted under the European Union regulations, Coca Cola's 30 times. CSE said that it had tested the same products in the US and found no such residues. However, this was the European standard for water, not for the other drinks. No law bans the presence of pesticides in drinks in India. The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo angrily denied allegations that their products are manufactured in India contained toxin levels far above the norms permitted in developed world. But an Indian parliamentary committee, in 2004, backed up CSE's findings and by a government-appointed committee, is now trying to develop the world's first pesticides standards for Soft Drink Company. Coke and Pepsi opposed the move, arguing that lab tests are not reliable enough to detect minute traces of pesticides in complex drinks. As of 2005, The Coca-Cola Company and the PepsiCo together hold 97% market share of soft drink sales in the India. PepsiCo has also been accused by the Puthussery panchayat in the Palakkad district in the Kerala, India, of practicing "water piracy" due to its role in the exploitation of groundwater resources resulting in the scarcity of drinking water for the panchayat residents, who have been pressuring the government to close down the PepsiCo unit in the villages. In the year 2006, the CSE again found that soda drinks, including both the Pepsi and the Coca-Cola, had high levels of pesticides in their drinks. Both the PepsiCo and The CocaCola Company maintain that their drinks are safe for the consumption and have published in newspaper advertisement that say that pesticide levels in their products are less than those in other foods such as tea, fruit and dairy products.

25

In the Indian state of Kerala sales and production of Pepsi-Cola, along with other soft drinks, was banned by the state government in 2007, but this was reversed by the Kerala High Court merely a month later. Five other Indian states have announced a partial bans on the drinks in the schools, colleges and the hospitals.

WHY & WHEN TO ADVERTISE:


Advertising as a tool to marketing not only reaches those who buy, but also those whose opinions or authority is counted for example a manufacturer of marble tiles and building boards advertises not only to people who intend to build houses but also to architect and engineers. While the manufacturers of pharmaceuticals products advertise to doctors as well as to the general public. At time it is necessary for a manufacturer or a concern to advertise things which it does not sell but which when sold stimulates the sales of its own product. There are concerns like electric heaters, iron etc. because the use of these increases the demand for their products. Advertising should be used only when it promises to bring good result more economically and efficiently as compared to other means of selling. There are goods for which much time and efforts are required in creating a demand by sending salesman to prospective buyers than by simply advertising them. In the early days of the cash register in India it was sold by specially trained salesman who called on the prospective users and had the difficult task of convincing them that they could no longer carry on with the old methods, and that they urgently needed a cash register. In our country certain publishers have found it less costly to sell their books by sending salesman from house to house among prospective buyers than to advertise them. In these two examples the cost of creating demand would be too high if attempted by advertising alone under such circumstances advertising is used to make the salesman acceptable to the people they call upon to increase the confidence of the public in the house. Naturals when there are good profits competitors will be attracted and they should be kicked out as and when sufficient capital is available by advertising on a large scale. Immediate result may not justify the increased expenditure but it will no doubt secure future sales.

Sales-Effect:
Communication-effect advertising research helps advertisers assess advertisings communication effects but reveals little about its sales impact. What sales a regenerated by an advertisement that increases brand awareness by 20% and brand preference by 10%? Advertisings sales effect is generally harder to measure than its communication effect. Sales are influenced by many factors besides advertising, such as the products features, price, availability and competitors' actions. The fewer or more controllable these other factors are, the easier it is to measure advertising's effect on sales. The sales impact is easiest to measure in direct-marketing's effect on sales. The sales impact is easiest it is to measure in direct-marketing situations and hardest measure in brand or corporateimage-building advertising.

PROGRESS TESTS
These assess the various stages of buyer awareness, preference, buying intention and the actual purchase in relation to advertising Effort. They are called sales effect tests.

Measuring Sales Response to Advertising:


Though increase in sales in the true measure of advertising effectiveness, in reality its difficult to measure the increase that is due to a particular advertisement. It is rather difficult to correlate the response in sales with the advertising programme. However, a few methods have been discarded in the following paragraphs which are generally used to measure the sales response to advertising.

Sales Results Tests:

34

The additional sales generated by the advertisements are recorded, taking several routes. Past Sales before the advertisement and sales after the advertisement are noted. The difference is attributed toad impact. Controlled Experiment: In experimental market, any one element of marketing mix is changed. It is compared with the sales of another similar market. The element's presence observance is a reason for difference in sales. Instead of two markets, the experiment can be carried on the two groups of consumers. The inventory audit is dealers inventory before and after the ad is run.

Attitude Tests:
This is an indirect measurement of the post-testing effects of advertisements on attitudes towards the advertised product or brands. The change in attitude as a result of advertising is assessed. The assumption is that favourable attitude towards the product may lead to purchases. Most advertisements are designed to either reinforce or change existing attitudes. An attitude is a favourable or unfavourable feeling about a product.

35

Selecting the Media:


Media selection is an important since it costs time space and money various factors influence this selection, the most fundamental being the nature of the target market segment, the type of the product and the cost involved. The distinctive characteristics of various media are also important. Therefore management should focus its attention on media compatibility with advertising objectives.

Modern Advertising Techniques:


Include seven that you should consider: 1. Email Advertising 2. Video Advertising 3. Audio Advertising 4. Search Advertising 5. Onsite Advertising 6. Mobile Phone Advertising I recently completed a series of posts on these modern advertising techniques. The posts provide additional information on each technique so Ive linked to them when relevant.

1. E-mail Advertising:
Email advertising tops this list of modern advertising techniques because it tops the lists of new and growing advertising expenditures. From small Internet marketers to large offline and online stores, email advertising is vital to modern advertising and marketing campaigns.

2. Video Advertising:
Video Advertising can be done on and off line. Many local cable channels offer video ads and infomercials on a search basis for viewers. So your ad is only seen by people interested in what you sell. Video marketing is also big on the Internet. Most online videos are more promotion than advertising, but they play an important role in online success.

37

3. Audio Advertising:
Audio advertising, whether across the Internet or the airwaves enables you to target a narrow market and to deliver relevant and timely messages that encourage an immediate response. Although second to video online, offline audio advertising (radio advertising) provides all the benefits of online audio advertising. And if you advertise on highly targeted stations and shows, it isnt that expensive.

4. Search Advertising:
Search advertising, like Googles Ad words, can provide much traffic for an online business, but it can also cost far more than it returns in sales. To use search advertising effectively, you need to constantly test your ads. Then rewrite and redesign them from your test results. Theres both skill and science to search advertising. So before you jump in, read some e books and study the search engines documents about their pay per click programs.

5. Onsite Advertising:
Onsite advertising can be considerably less expensive than search advertising. Generally a click from an ad on site costs less than the same click from a search. With Googles new Ad Planner, it will be easy to target a market with ads across the Internet. You can even pick the sites that you want to carry your ads and deny ones that you dont.

6. Mobile Phone Advertising:


Mobile phone advertising is projected to grow from just under 500 million in 2006 to a almost 5 billion by 2011.And why not. Its interactive, unobtrusive, and immediate. Most people have their mobile phones with them all the time. So they can react instantly to banner phone ads that catch their attention.
