Introduction to the topic
If marketing is everything you do to place your product (or service) in the hands of potential customers, how do you do it all -- especially if you're all alone? It helps to have a plan. A marketing plan is more than your map for success. It's actually a map-making process that when complete will reveal a clear route to your prospective customers. A good map reveals specific items of information. A good marketing plan should do the same for you. Here are six things your marketing plan should help you accomplish. 1) Prove that you understand your industry. Knowing your product isn't enough. 2) Identify your target market. These are the people most likely to buy your product or use your services. 3) Identify your competition. Who's out there and what are they doing? 4) Establish your pricing, distribution, and product positioning. How much will it cost plus a fair profit? How will you get it there? And where do you fit into the marketplace? 5) Get someone to subsidize your dream. If you want to attract investors, a written marketing plan is essential. 6) Focus on a single effective marketing concept. Define your strongest strength and lead with that. For example, Little Caesar's "pizza pizza" may not be the most innovative idea ever conceived -- but it's certainly one of the more effective. Why? Because it's simple and consistent. Here are the major components that you should consider when writing your marketing plan.

Mission (or vision) statement: This is an external communication of your company's values. Like Admiral Stockdale, you're answering the question, "Who am I and what am I doing here".

9

Company objective: This section communicates what you want to do, by when, and how (what are your resources?). It is specific, quantifiable, and is inclusive of your entire company. It is not merely a sales goal. If you're an entrepreneur, your company objective might also serve as your marketing objective. Market analysis: This section reports on the findings of the extensive research that you have pursued and prepared. You need to discuss various factors of the market environment in relation to your product. These factors include legal, social, political, economic, and technological considerations. Target audience: Based on your research, discuss who your customers are and how you can reach them. Here's where you decide whether to niche or not, or to segment your audience either vertically or horizontally. Competitive analysis: Your advance research should reveal your competitors, the obvious and especially the others. How does what they're doing relate to your product? What advantages do you have? How can you keep the advantage? Action plan: As Shakespeare said, "Action is eloquence". You've made your map. Now you can define the best route to reach your customers. This section of your marketing plan outlines what media mix you'll use to reach your audience. Advertising -- where, how often, and at what cost. Public relations -- specific programs and promotions of interest to the community. Sales strategies -- incentive programs for representatives and distributors as well as prospective customers. A successful marketing plan is based on research and analysis. But because information can be manipulated to prove almost anything, insight is equally important. As Edward de Bono says, "Proof is often no more than a lack of imagination".

MARKET SITUATION OF CARS INDUSTRIES IN 2011

The current market situation of car industries in Pakistan is at worst condition. Due to following reasons

1. Leasing
At the end of December, 2006. The President of Pakistan Pervaiz Musharraf. Introduced new polices for leasing. Starting from 2007 the banks in Pakistan applied strict Polices for commercialization. This policy of strict leasing rules directly effect on the production of cars in the industry. The no. of sold cars in 2006 was almost one million, which reduces to three hundred thousands. Now a day the leasing is totally eliminated from the banking sectors.

2. Branded and refurnished cars
GOVT. gives the license of Branded and refurnished cars in Pakistan. Custom duty is very low on branded and refurnished cars. That is the reason; people of Pakistan purchased these cars like Vitz, Platz, and Mini Pajaro, Toyota, Suzuki and also Honda.
MARKET SITUATION OF HONDA

leasing and refurnished cars also have direct impact on the production of Honda. But overall market situation Honda is better than other companies. The annual production and growth shows that Honda is market leader. If we study the environment of Pakistan there is a opportunity for Honda to have a new product line in the form of small cars. In Japan and also in India Honda has already lunched the series of series of small cars like brio and jazz. But still in Pakistan there is no small car of Honda available. In 2011-12 many refurnished small cars were imported but they could not satisfy the customers.

11

CAR INDUSTRY IN PAKISTAN Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan Limited is a joint venture between Honda Motor Company Limited Japan, and the Atlas Group of Companies, Pakistan.
All dealerships are constructed in accordance with the standards defined by Honda World over. Percentage of local parts conforms to the government's policy. Local vendors are continuously patronized to develop parts locally. The quality of local parts is thoroughly checked to meet stringent international standards. We always strive to give outstanding service to our valued customers. In addition to providing regular service to customers, the company also regularly conducts Service Campaigns, to facilitate customer's need for service. This has given our customers absolute confidence in our cars, clearly evident from the ever increasing sale volume

Customer Service Centers
All the authorized dealerships in Pakistan are a source of customer satisfaction. The after sale is supported by the immaculate service and the availability of spares at competitive prices for every car sold. To facilitate the customers for any assistance they require, we have a separate department, called Customer Relations, at the head office. This department is supported by the subsequent Customer Relations Officers at all dealerships. The purpose of Customer Relations Department and Customer Relations Officers is to enable our customers in getting any sort of help required by them.

Free Services
HACPL is a customer service conscious company, for which it is always looking for avenues to develop further relations with the customers who have already purchased the cars. We consider purchase of car as the beginning of relations with customers. To prolong this relationship and encourage the customers to keep on coming to the dealership, to get theirs cars maintained the Honda way we provide

12

three FREE CHECK-UP SERVICES to our customers. These are basically three periodic check-ups at 1,000 Km, 5,000 Km and 10,000 Km mileage which are normally done after 1 month, 3 months and 6 months of running the car. Other than providing service to customers another reason for this facility is to stress on the importance of periodic maintenance. Periodic maintenance is essential for every car and if this is performed regularly as per the maintenance schedule the car is trouble free and life of car increases by many years. For these free services the labor is not charged, where as the customer has to pay for only the consumable like engine oil, oil filter, etc..

Repair and Maintenance
HACPL is providing regular trainings to the dealers' technicians. The trainings cover all aspects of the cars including the periodic maintenance, diagnostics, trouble shooting and repairs according to HONDA standards. From this we want to facilitate the customers in maintaining their cars in top-most condition and enjoying the comfort and performance of the luxury vehicles they own. It is our endeavor to have uniform service standards made available at all dealerships in accordance with the international Honda standards. We consider the properly maintained vehicles not only to be a source of satisfaction to our customers; they also increase the sale value of their car.

Career
At Honda we believe that a skilled, motivated and diversified workforce is the key to success in today's global market. The Power of Dreams is alive at Honda. Our belief is that the best people produce the best products. That's why Honda is constantly on the lookout for bright, ambitious team players who have a strong

Performance
Honda heightens your driving enjoyment with a rare combination of spirited engine response and exceptional fuel efficiency. This ideal balance is achieved by Honda's next-generation 1.8-liter SOHC i-VTEC engine - the first entirely new Civic power plant in 17 years. Through Honda's advanced i-VTEC (Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) system and DBW (Drive By Wire) technology, it performs like two types of engines in one compact unit. At high engine loads, such as when starting from a standstill or stepping on the accelerator, DBW fully opens the throttle while VTEC optimizes intake valve timing to generate 2.0liter-equivalent power. At low engine loads, such as during highspeed cruising, DBW narrows the throttle opening while VTEC delays valve closing to achieve 1.5-liter-equivalent fuel efficiency. Settings are intelligently switched in a seamless manner to ensure smooth, linear response at all revolutions

Before launching a product, it is necessary to analyze the competition environment of the target market. If there is a threat from large competition, than a suitable marketing strategy has to be worked out to overcome the problems. Product differentiation or price leadership can lead to success.

A. INDUSTRIAL COMPETITORS.
It means when Honda launches cars then they think about the Service and private cottage industry.

B. MARKET COMPETITORS.
It means when we come with tea in the market we are not going to compete only with Tapal but also with Coffee. This example helps us to understand market competitors but when we talk about the Honda product in the market we see there is not other substitute of cars as coffee for tea hence all the industrial competitions are also the competitions of Honda in market.
