WHAT IS A BRAND?

Definition:
Brand is a name, a term, a sign, a symbol, a design or a combination
of all of these intended to identify the goods and services of one seller or a
group of sellers and to differentiate them from those of competitors.
A brand is a name or trademark connected with a product or producer.
Brands have become increasingly important components of culture and the
economy, now being described as “cultural accessories and personal
philosophies”.

Competitors Analysis
India being the second fastest growing economy with a huge consumer class has resulted
in consumer durables as one of the fastest growing industries in India. Airtel, Loop
Mobile, Call, Reliance, Tata and Vodafone. The companies have been maintaining the
lead in the industry. The last few years have seen stiff competition for leadership in the
Indian telecommunication market, especially among Reliance, Call, Airtel, and
Vodafone. The segment saw a growth of 7-8 per cent in 2008 and this year the industry is
hopeful of clocking a growth of 12-15 per cent.

In the past few years, the telecommunication market has seen the influx of US companies
like Vodafone. Who have managed to capture a sizeable portion of the market from
established players using innovative product lines and aggressive promotion campaigns.

The main competitors of the company are:


 Airtel,Vodafone
 Reliance Communication

SWOT Analysis of Call
SWOT analysis is also another way of deciding on a successful marketing scheme, we
must look at strength, weakness, opportunity and threat.

Strengths
• Call has more than 65 million customers. It is the largest cellular provider in
India, and also supplies broadband and telephone services - as well as many other
telecommunications services to both domestic and corporate customers.
• Other stakeholders in Call include Sony-Ericsson, Nokia - and Sing Tel, with
whom they hold a strategic alliance. This means that the business has access to
knowledge and technology from other parts of the telecommunications world.
• The company has covered the entire Indian nation with its network. This has
underpinned its large and rising customer base.

Weaknesses
• An often cited original weakness is that when the business was started over 28
years ago, the business has little knowledge and experience of how a cellular
telephone system actually worked. So the start-up business had to outsource to
industry experts in the field.
• Until recently Call did not own its own towers, which was a particular strength of
some of its competitors such as Hutchison Essar. Towers are important if your
company wishes to provide wide coverage nationally.
• The fact that the Call has not pulled off a deal because of signal the lack of any
real emerging market investment opportunity for the business once the Indian
market has become mature.

Opportunities
• National telecommunications and new technology brands see Call as a key
strategic player in the Indian market. Despite being forced to outsource much of
its technical operations in the early days, this allowed call to work from its own
blank sheet of paper, and to question industry approaches and practices - for
example replacing the Revenue-Per-Customer model with a Revenue-Per-Minute
model which is better suited to India, as the company moved into small and
remote villages and towns.
• The company is investing in its operation in 120,000 to 160,000 small villages
every year. It sees that less well-off consumers may only be able to afford a few
tens of Rupees per call, and also so that the business benefits are scalable - using
its 'Matchbox' strategy.
• Call is embarking on another joint venture with Vodafone Essar and Idea Cellular
to create a new independent tower company called Indus Towers. This new
business will control more than 60% of India's network towers. IPTV is another
potential new service that could underpin the company's long-term strategy.
Threats
• Airtel and Vodafone seem to be having an on/off relationship. Vodafone which
owned a 5.6% stake in the Airtel business sold it back to Airtel, and instead
invested in its rival Hutchison Essar. Knowledge and technology previously
available to Call now moves into the hands of one of its competitors.
• The quickly changing pace of the National telecommunications industry could
tempt Call to go along the acquisition trail which may make it vulnerable if the
world goes into recession. Perhaps this was an impact upon the decision not to
proceed with talks about the potential purchase. Call could also be the target for
the takeover vision of other global telecommunications players that wish to move
into the Indian market.
DEVELOPING A BRAND

SEGMENTATION:

Market segmentation is the identification of portions of the market that are


different from one another. Segmentation allows the firm to better satisfy the
needs of its potential customers. Call’s market segmentation is all Classes

TARGETING:

Target Marketing involves breaking a market into segments and then


concentrating your marketing efforts on one or a few key segments. Target
marketing can be the key to a small business’s success. Geographical area
which Call is targeting is only Mumbai as it is the initial stage of Call. So it
is targeting only in Mumbai and demography which Call has decided for its
product is 18 to 40 years.

POSITIONING:

It is the “added value” or augmented elements that determine a brand’s


positioning in the market place.

market.
