Revitalization can be made through increasing Usage. It is a situation when a particular brand gets negative publicity through different Medias. The damaging effects of brand crises may change from time to time and so are not uniform in nature. obsolescing existing products and extending the brand Action to be taken during brand crisis Under fire. augmenting the Product/services. Brand crises or false brand propositions can do severe damage to brands. as it demonstrates what the brand owner is able to offer in the marketplace. organizations should respond quickly. repositioning. etc. entering new markets. It is very important for any company to avoid brand crisis or should be proactive to take necessary steps to revitalize brand image during brand crisis. due to which preference for buying the product declines. Core Brand defines a brand crisis when “Familiarity” grows and “Favorability” declines significantly and quickly. The reason for the brands not to do well is probably the consumer perception. Companies spend considerable amount for creating positive perception among consumer.to other brands having the same resources. Brand Crisis: When there is negative perception among consumer it is called brand crisis which is focused on the study. Saying “no comment” is one of the worst things you can do. Brand crisis can take place through different factors like legal issues. quality issue. An organization with a poor reputation will suffer from poor crisis management. A brand is therefore one of the most valuable elements in an advertising theme. People engaged in branding seek to develop or align the expectations behind the brand experience. creating the impression that a brand associated with a product or service has certain qualities or characteristics that make it special or unique. Organizations should avoid denying responsibility Organizations should empathize with victims 5 . patent issue. Organizations must behave transparently to reduce perceptual damage.

Philip Kotler. This perceived image of the brand belongs not to the product but rather is the property of the consumers’ mental perceptions and in some instances could differ widely from the brands’ true physical characteristics. Some believe. 6 . Positioning also represents the essence of the brand as perceived by the target consumer in a multibrand market. “once the core product concept is chosen. This concept of perpetual space forms the core thought behind brand positioning. A few believe that it is no more than old wine in new bottles. Positioning appears to be confusing to this day and the opinions differ widely. a marketer must be able to formulate such a strategy that would be able to create a perception in the prospects mind which would stand apart from competing brands and approximate more closely to what the consumer wants. Therefore. According to Prof. one must be able to defy conventional logic which says that the concept lies with the marketer or inside the product but in reality a marketer must be able look inside the prospects mind. To achieve this. Positioning according to some people refers to a brand’s subjective (perceived) attributes in relation to competing brands. the one which will get a marketer maximum sales. it is the art of selecting out of a number of unique selling propositions. They feel that the use of positioning strategy is as old as the ideas of market segmentation and product differentiation. with product categories and brands occupying different points in that space. it defines the character of the product space in which the new product has to be positioned.Poor crisis management will impact the bottom line Poorly managed crises negatively impact brand images Brand Positioning The consumer mind is regarded as a geometric perpetual space.

The attributes of a brand are the manufacture’s view of a brand. Each brand has to carve out a ‘niche’ to call its own. Perpetual mapping techniques identify the underlying dimensions. In other words.In order to position a brand successfully we have to first understand which other brands our brand must contend with so that it lodges itself in the target customer’s perpetual space. positioning a brand and the target segment for which it is designated must be considered together as integrated parts of one strategy because just as a brand must be positioned to appeal to a consumer segment. Finally. what is the structure of the market or set of substitutes amongst which our brand is to be positioned? The second notable or significant concept is consumer segmentation what is the profile of the consumer whom our brand will serve and what are their needs. band attributes and benefits play a major role in positioning a brand successfully. Positioning theory places emphasis on the target consumer’s perceptions of brands in relation to other brands. The next step in positioning is to measure the perception of target consumers. A marketer has to discover ‘holes’ or vacant positions in the market structure because they represent opportunities for new products. Some of the leading brands. a marketer must understand who are his closest competitors and must endeavour to be unique among similar. would respond to a brand that occupies the position preferred by it. a consumer segment too. Positioning is a theory that was born out Of intense competition let loose by a great proliferation of brands. For this reason.with very large market shares tend to position themselves across several segments while other brands with low market shares are positioned more narrowly. Thus. Perpetual mapping represents consumer perceptions in a two dimensional space so that the manger can readily see where his own brand is positioned in the mind of the prospect and in relation to other brands. The consumer’s frame of reference requires that those manufacturer claims or brand attributes be translated into consumer benefits in order to mapping consumer perception. 7 .

and ensure that problems with different interpretations of the terms and concepts cannot occur. The concepts of the conceptual model can be used as basis of object-oriented design and implemented in program code. in particular as classes in object-oriented languages. such as concurrency or data storage. Dependent Variable: Consumer Perception Independent Variables: Brand ambassador Pesticides and govt. issues Promotions Multinational companies 14 . and to find the correct relationships between different concepts. The conceptual model attempts to clarify the meaning of various usually ambiguous terms. THE DEPENDENT AND INDEPENDENT VARIABLES: Independent variables are the variables that are manipulated by the researcher and whose effects are measured and compared and the dependent variables are the variables that measure the effect of the independent variables on the test units. The conceptual model is explicitly chosen to be independent of implementation details. The realization of conceptual models of many domains can be combined to a coherent platform. This is also established by hypotheses.The conceptual model gives the relation between the independent and dependent variables. The aim of conceptual model is to express the meaning of terms and concepts used by domain experts to discuss the problem.

Problem can be faced if consumer perception is change negatively. 15 . It is a point where the consumer perception of a particular concept or product becomes important. due to few limitations. Thus we can see that consumer perception and attitudes play a vital factor for any organization to come to a conclusion about their product.Relationship management For this research purpose one dependent and two independent variable have been taken. so market research has become one of the key tool or practices for these organisations to find out the truths about products. If one likes or dislike the product then it is important to know why he likes or dislikes or what is making that particular person to purchase it. CONCEPTUAL DIAGRAM: Brand ambassador Consumer perception Pesticides issues CONSUMER PERCEPTION: In the present business conditions when every company is treating consumer as God. So it is very important to maintain positive perception among consumer. everyone is trying to find the reasons why their product is a hit or a failure. specially the FMCG sector. The one more behaviour of the consumers is their attitude towards the product.

The questions are in a form of measurement scale having numbers and/or brief description associated with each category. i. The data collected can be broadly classified into two types. It is a form of itemized scale method with five response categories ranging from “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree”. primary data and secondary data. Primary data was collected through questionnaire using itemized scale method. The target population is the collection of elements or objects that posses the information sought by 18 . After filling up the questionnaire numbers from 1 to 5 is assigned according to positive or negative statement.. The categories are ordered in terms of scale position.Any survey needs to collect data systematically and analyses it to meet the objectives of research. which requires the respondents to indicate a degree of agreement or disagreement with each of a series of statements related to the stimulus objects.e. The result is then analysed by using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) software Positive statement 1 Strongly disagree 2 Disagree 3 Neutral 4 Agree 5 Strongly agree Negative statement 1 Strongly agree 2 Agree 3 Neutral 4 Disagree 5 Strongly disagree Questionnaire Itemized scale method Likert scale Sampling design begins by specifying the target population.

Descriptive research The major objective of descriptive research is to describe something-usually market characteristics or function. easy to measure and cooperative. The sampling units are accessible.sampling units is left primarily to the interviewer or researcher. It is also used due to its least expensive and least time consuming characteristics. This research is based on conclusive research design which is further classified into descriptive research. It is typically based on large representative samples. Sampling techniques Non-probability sampling Convenience sampling Research design: Research design is a framework or blue print for conducting the business research project. It specifies the details of the procedures necessary for obtaining the information needed to structure and /or solve business research problem. It 20 . A formal research design specifies the methods for selecting the source of information and for collecting data from those sources. This method is used because respondents are selected as they are happening to be in right place and at the right time. It is classified into exploratory and conclusive research. It assumes that the research has much prior knowledge about the problem situation as a result descriptive research is pre planned and structure. Inspite of the advantages these methods have disadvantages too.

but not strong enough as the values lies between 0 and 0. whereas brand ambassador reliability is less. • The correlation between dependent and independent variables is positive. SUGGESTIONS: • This has been clearly defined that pesticides issues have direct and more reliable impact on consumer perception for Coca Cola products.5. 27 . • Brand ambassador has no much impact on consumer perception so fewer amounts can be spent on ambassador. so we can conclude that ambassador has very less effect on consumer perception of Coca Cola products. so awareness should be created within consumers about the ingredients of the products and a message should be sent about the safety ness of the products. and the same can be spent on some other useful activities.7% of variation between dependant and independent variable is explained.FINDINGS: • From the research we can find that reliability of consumer perception and pesticides issues is good. • Only 7.

attempts have been taken to make the research study a scientific and reliable one.LIMITATIONS: • Time factor is the most crucial one. The research study was conducted within a short period of 2 months • I have to wait for a long time to make respondents fill the questionnaire. they being busy with their work. But in spite of these limitations. • To collect information from person to person involved in their working hours all against their threat of being exposed to personal confidential information. enthusiasm. • It is also found that some of the respondents lack interest. which in turn de-motivates me. CONCLUSION: 28 . initiative and involvement. • The final and foremost thing is that very often the respondents secrecy stands on the way to find out the personal information regarding some aspects of the study.
