SWOT ANALYSIS Strengths Positive image in customers mind: We have already set a positive image about our company and our existing product in the customers mind. So if we go for launching our new product, JOTNO Baby Diaper customer may accept the product by analyzing the reputation of our existing products. Technological skill: We are using machineries with latest technology. With these latest technologies we can make more quality product within a short period of time. Comparatively lower price: The price of the offering product, JOTNO Baby Diaper is comparatively lower than other competitor. There is no Bangladeshi product in the market, so the competitor has to pay the import cost which increases the selling price. On the other hand as a local company we can offer lower price by saving some costs like import. Weaknesses

Lack of experience of manufacturing the product: JOTNO Baby Diaper is completely a new product. Actually we dont have any experience of manufacturing the product. So in the initial stage we may face little problem to manufacture the product.
Low Incentives for Sales People: After analyzing our current market, we can see that our worker are not offer sufficient incentives, they should be offered seasonal incentives, so that they can get some recreation like bonus, tour programs, vacation, promotional activities. We have to keep in mind that a good working force is the strength of the company. Excessive promotional cost: Here we are following number of promotional strategy like advertisement, vaccination campaign, painting festival etc. So cover these promotional activities our promotional cost is being very high.

Opportunities Absence of local manufacturer: Presently there is no reliable local manufacturer of baby diaper. So there is a big opportunity to provide our product at low cost because no import cost will be occurred for our diaper. Existing distribution channel: As our intended target markets are in relatively accessible areas we intend to be able to meet their requirements in the shortest possible time because already we have the distribution channels of our existing products. Low manufacturing cost: All of we know that the labor cost in Bangladesh is very cheap. The other thing is that as an existing company we have already some machinery. So, with cheap labor cost and existing machinery we can keep our manufacturing cost low.

Threats Misconception about foreign product: The "Foreign is good, local is poor" belief may present a difficult hurdle to be overcome. Most of the customers of our country think that the foreign good is always better than our local products. Thats why they may not purchase our product. Existing competitor: Wholesalers and institutions may express satisfaction with their current diapers. The existing competitors have already built the market position. So it is very difficult to compete with market leaders.

New entrants: More new company may come to the market. Some company may use new technology as well.

MARKET SEGMENTATION
JOTNO Baby Diaper consumers can be divided in three segments depending on their age, lifestyle and income. On the basis of their purchasing power, rate of consumption and the cost to serve each segments attractiveness is discussed below:

Demographic We are segmenting the market on the basis of gender, age and occupation. We have targeted female customer, mothers of the children. We are producing the diaper for different ages

of children. Here we are preparing diaper for the children whose age is below four years. The people whose income is healthy will make purchase our product. Whose income is very poor may not purchase our product. Geographic We are trying to establish our outlets in all divisional cities and vital cities of Bangladesh. The first reason is that, there are many reputed departmental store and Pharmacy around these areas where we can reach easily. Another reason is that the people who are living in the rural area may not purchase our product thats why we have chosen the urban area.

Psychographic We are choosing different kind of customer whose life style and personality is better. The rickshaw pullers lifestyle and a business persons lifestyle are not same. The probability purchasing Baby Diaper for rickshaw pullers child is very low whereas the probability of purchasing Baby Diaper for business persons child is higher. Thats why we have chosen the customer whose lifestyle is better.

MARKETING STRATEGY Though we are working on an uniform product, our marketing strategy is developed in a bit different way as we did initially, due to the limited resources available to us, we are trying to serve a segmented market rather than going for the mass market through chosen our target market, specifically the wholesalers. We segmented our market demographically, more specifically, on location basis. At first we have targeted the local market of metropolitan cities as it promises higher market growth rate because of the high population. Some of the marketing strategies we follow are: POSITIONING STRATEGY Our target is to position our product in a way that will eventually help us to build some loyalty among the target market, which are the wholesalers, by offering them something extra such as offering them some allowances to avail, rewarding them with some discounts etc. As our business based on a uniform product, to do the positioning by modifying the basic feature of our product is not feasible enough.

POSTERS Posters are also effective method for attracting customers. Especially colorful posters are very eye catching and create quick customer attention. We are decided to use the traditional paper poster and also the special plastic posters for the advertisement. Both types of posters will be colorful to grab the quick attention the customers. Plastic posters will be hanged on inside of the hospital/clinic wall, in front of school wall and affixed on the walls of the shops and outside the shop. To attract the target customer we will be using some essential heath tips on the poster. We also post our poster on the POLIO Vaccination day at POLIO vaccination camps of targeted area. Our business slogan, product type & quality information will be written in the poster. Price for each 1.5 by 1 traditional paper poster rated Taka 7.Hanging poster will cost Taka 200 each and the dimension will be 4 by 2. Every outlet will be provided two hanging poster.

ELECTRONIC MEDIA The most popular electronic media is television all over the world. Advertising through very expensive but extremely effective. For the first year advertising promotion we have no plan to introduce our company through television media. Moreover for first 6 month we will advertise through 5 popular TV channel and local cable channel(video channel) . These are also useful medium to attract the customers. LOCAL CABLE CHANNEL Everybody has cable connection in their house. And every satellite cable channel provider has own video channel. Local video channels are new advertising media for the business organizations like our Comfort Higiencare Pvt Ltd. This video channels are used to entertain people by broadcasting dramas and movies. Also general information about our product- product depth, quality of the product will be showed 20 hours as footnote in the video channel and it will cost us taka 800 per day . Showing the advertising will cost us Taka 1200 each day.

TV channel: TV channel is the most widespread media of advertising. We have decided to show the advertisement on Ntv, Channel-I, Bangla Vision, ATN Bangla and Rtv. In the interval of the cooking related TV show, drama serials and package drama the JOTNO Baby Diaper advertisement will be showed. Because these program's usual viewers are women, our target customers. For first month we will show the advertisement for 30 second in 5 channel. After that we will show our advertisement for 10 second in 3 channels for 5 month. Then we will prepare the new strategy of advertising. OTHER WAY OF ADVERTISING: Packet: The packet itself can be an advertisement. We will put some necessary information about the standard weight of children according to the height at the backside of our packet. So after consuming the product customer will not left the packet because of this measurement. Only because of the measurement the mother of the baby may show it to another mother. Therefore it has been an indirect advertisement of the JOTNO Baby Diaper.
