As mentioned earlier. we have divided our market on the basis of following four variables:• Geographic • Demographic • Psychographic • Behavioral Geographic We have divided Pakistan in four segments on the basis of provinces. We will specifically design our marketing strategy according to our selected segments. Since now toothpaste is a product which is not used occasionally in urban areas round the country. characteristics or behaviors who might require separate products or marketing mixes. Behavioral According to a national survey by Colgate Palmolive in 1999 only 16% of the total population of Pakistan had been using toothpastes as a mean of daily oral cleansing. Multan and Faisalabad. Our product (Colgate Junior) is specifically manufactured for kids. Ref:. buying attitudes and buying practices.

Our first priority is to maintain the good image of our brand in the mind of our customers by introducing a new product of an equivalent quality. Ref: See Index Market Targeting: Market segmentation reveals the firm’s market segment opportunities. Using different flavors and alterations.

Magazines. Pull Strategy: Colgate Junior will implement pull strategy in order to be a magnet for customers.

Time is the main factor to gain require target of market share & growth. The profit share will increase parallel to the ratio of growth. the higher the growth rate and the faster the market for that product grows.
