CHAPTER 1
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Beauty product
Cosmetics (also known as makeup or make-up) are care substances used to
enhance the appearance or odor of the human body. They are generally mixtures of
chemical compounds, some being derived from natural sources and many being
synthetics.
In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates
cosmetics,defines cosmetics as "intended to be applied to the human body for
cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without
affecting the body's structure or functions." This broad definition includes any
material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. The FDA specifically
excludes soap from this category.

1.2 Marketing strategy


Marketing strategy is the goal of increasing sales and achieving a sustainable
competitive advantage. Marketing strategy includes all basic and long-term activities
in the field of marketing that deal with the analysis of the strategic initial situation of a
company and the formulation, evaluation and selection of market-oriented strategies
and therefore contribute to the goals of the company and its marketing objectives.

1.2.1 Developing a marketing strategy


Marketing strategies serve as the fundamental underpinning of marketing plans
designed to fill market needs and reach marketing objectives. Plans and objectives are
generally tested for measurable results. Commonly, marketing strategies are
developed as multi-year plans, with a tactical plan detailing specific actions to be
accomplished in the current year. Time horizons covered by the marketing plan vary
by company, by industry, and by nation, however, time horizons are becoming shorter
as the speed of change in the environment increases. Marketing strategies are dynamic

and interactive. They are partially planned and partially unplanned. See strategy
dynamics. Marketing strategy needs to take a long-term view, and tools such as
customer lifetime value models can be very powerful in helping to simulate the effects
of strategy on acquisition, revenue per customer and churn rate.

External environmental factors include customer analysis, competitor analysis,


target market analysis, as well as evaluation of any elements of the technological,
economic, cultural or political/legal environment likely to impact success.

A key component of marketing strategy is often to keep marketing in line with


a company's overarching mission statement.

Once a thorough environmental scan is complete, a strategic plan can be


constructed to identify business alternatives, establish challenging goals, determine
the optimal marketing mix to attain these goals, and detail implementation. A final
step in developing a marketing strategy is to create a plan to monitor progress and a
set of contingencies if problems arise in the implementation of the plan.

Marketing Mix Modeling is often used to help determine the optimal marketing
budget and how to allocate across the marketing mix to achieve these strategic goals.
Moreover, such models can help allocate spend across a portfolio of brands and
manage brands to create value.

1.2.3 Marketing strategy of Amway

1.2.4 Marketing strategy of Lakm

Lakm, which got its name from a late 19th century French Opera Lakm by
Lo Delibes, which is the French word for Goddess Lakshmi, has been in the business
of sharing secrets of the mythical beauty of goddesses to Indian women. And in its
attempt to diffuse the message to the mass, the cosmetic brand has used all kinds of
MARKETING channels, including the now-popular digital media, led by social media
platforms. To keep the focus sharp, in this article, we shall see how the brand has
performed on social media leaving discussions on the rest of the channels for
elsewhere.

1.2.5 Audience Analysis of Lakm


Owing to the brand building exercise by Lakm, the sentiments expressed by
people (see second image), both male and female, is either positive or neutral. There is
almost no negative emotion flowing for the brand, but what is surprising is the number
of male followers of the brand.

1.3 Lakme's Profile


Lakm is an Indian brand of cosmetics, owned by Unilever. Lakme started as a
100% subsidiary of Tata Group (Tomco), it was named after the French opera Lakm.
At the time of its establishment, Indian cosmetic industry was rather nacent, and there
was a very small market base. Simone Tata joined the company as director, and went

on to become its chairman. When Tata's saw a bigger growth potential in the retail
market, and greater competition from global companies in cosmetics, they enetered
into a 50-50 joint venture with Hindustan Lever Limited (the Indian subsidiary of
Unilever) in 1995 to form Lakme Lever.

In 1998 Tata sold of there stakes in Lakm Lever to to HLL, for Rs 200 Crore
(45 million US$), and went on to create Trent and Westside. Half a century ago, as
India took her steps into freedom, Lakme, India's first beauty brand was born. At a
time when the beauty industry in India was at a nascent stage, Lakme tapped into what
would grow to be amongst the leading, high consumer interest segments in the Indian
Industry - that of skincare and cosmetic products. Armed with a potent combination of
foresight, research and constant innovation, Lakme has grown to be the market leader
in the cosmetics industry.
.
Lakme today has grown to have a wide variety of products and services that
cover all facets of beauty care, and arm the consumer with products to pamper herself
from head to toe. These include products for the lips, nails, eyes, face and skin, and

A Solid Foundation
Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel's friendship actually
began with a business proposition, when Rich struck
a deal with Jay for a ride to school for 25 cents a
week After high school they entered the military, but
they planned to start a business together after separate
tours of duty. A friendship formed and became a
business relationship that has lasted to this day.

Jay Van Andel's homes. In its first full year of business, Amway's sales were more

plant and went on. The '70s began with sales of more than $100 million at estimated

Amway is a genuine business opportunity and not a "pyramid."

1980. Building expansion at Amway World Headquarters continued at breakneck
speed as Amway scrambled to keep pace with demand, opening its new cosmetics
plant in Ada, Michigan.

CHAPTER 2
DISTRICT PROFILE GONDIA CITY
2.1 Introduction

Gondia, or Gondiya is a city in the state of Maharashtra in Central India, and is


the administrative headquarters of the Gondia District. Gondia is also known as Rice
City due to the abundance of rice mills in the area. It is a very important city in the
Vidarbha region. Gondia is very close to the state of Madhya Pradesh, and is
considered the gateway to Maharashtra from Central and Eastern India.There are large
number of rice mills and some small scale tobacco industries.
In ancient time, this region was ruled over by Gond kings. The rich dense forest
reflects the culture of Gond people the main business at that time was to collect lak
(sealing wax) from Palas tree and Gum from Babul tree, Gum is called as Gond in
Hindi, therefore the name Gondia is tagged to the place

2.2 History
Gondia was part of the kingdom of Maha Kosala, ruled by the Haihaya Rajput kings
of Chhattisgarh in the 7th century and retains some recollection of Hindu kings who
ruled from Nagardhan.

The 12th century saw the rule of Ponwars who were subsequently ousted by Gond
chiefs who asserted their independence of the Ratanpur dynasty. This was followed by
Raghoji Bhonsle of Satara who established himself as the king of Vidarbha in 1743. In
1755, Janoji was declared as the sovereign of the territory, after the death of his father
Raghoji Bhonsle. The two brothers Mudhoji and Rupaji of Raghoji Bhonsle of
Hingani-Beradi were contemporaries of Shahaji, the father of Chhatrapati Shivaji and
one of the ancestors of the Bhonsles of Nagpur who rehabilitated the village of Beradi
was probably the contemporary of Maloji, the grandfather of Chhatrapati Shivaji.
After the death of Sambhaji, during the Mughal-Maratha conflict, Parasoji rendered
invaluable help to Rajaram who had succeeded to the throne of Chhatrapati. The

23

territories of Vidarbha and Berar from which he had exacted tribute were given to his
charge under a grant made in 1699 A.D.

In 1707 after the death of Aurangzeb when Shahu was released by Muhammad Azam,
Parasoji Bhonsle was the first of the Maratha nobles to join him in west Khandesh.
The 17th century saw the invasion of the Peshwas who were instrumental in making
the district a part of Berar. The Peshwas were succeeded by the Nizams during the
1850s; the Nizam ceded Berar to the British East India Company. In 1903, the Nizam
leased Berar to the British Government of India. It was transferred to the Central
Provinces. In 1956, with the re-organization of states, Bhandara was transferred from
Madhya Pradesh to Bombay Province and in 1960 with the formation of Maharashtra;
it became a district of the state. Gondia district was carved out by division of
Bhandara district after the 1991 Census.

2.3 Divisions
The district is divided into 2 sub-divisions, Gondia and Deori which are further
divided into 8 talukas. Each sub-division consists of 4 talukas. The Gondia subdivision consists of Gondia, Goregaon, Tirora and Arjuni Moregaon talukas while
Deori sub-division consists of Deori, Amgaon, Salekasa and Sadak Arjuni talukas.
The district consists 556 Gram panchayats, 8 Panchayat Samitis and 954 revenue
villages. Two municipalities in this district are Gondia and Tirora.
The district has 4 Vidhan Sabha constituencies: Arjuni-Morgaon (SC), Gondiya,
Tirora and Amgaon (ST). While the first three are part of Bhandara-Gondiya Lok
Sabha constituency, the last one is part of Gadchiroli-Chimur (ST) Lok Sabha
constituency.

2.4 Economy
In 2006 the Ministry of Panchayati Raj named Gondia one of the country's 250 most
backward districts (out of a total of 640). It is one of the twelve districts in
Maharashtra currently receiving funds from the Backward Regions Grant Fund
Programme (BRGF).

24

2.5 Demographics
According to the 2011 census Gondia district has a population of 1,322,331, roughly
equal to the nation of Mauritius or the US state of New Hampshire.This gives it a
ranking of 369th in India (out of a total of 640). The district has a population density
of 253 inhabitants per square kilometre (660/sq mi) . Its population growth rate over
the decade 2001-2011 was 10.13%. Gondiya has a sex ratio of 996 females for every
1000 males, and a literacy rate of 85.41%.
