Djuice was first introduced in Bangladesh and then to Pakistan. It has since grown to become one of the largest Youth mobile brands in Pakistan. Since Pakistan has more than 50% population between the ages of 12 to 20, the youth market is very important for telecom sector. This is the reason why Telenor and its competitors Mobilink, Ufone and Warid have their own youth targeted brands like Jazz Octane, Warid GLOW and Ufone Youth Package.
Marketing Strategy
Over the last decade the telecom sector has matured and become very competitive. That is why even market leaders like Telenor can not adopt defensive strategies against its competitors. Recently Djuice has has dropped to second place after Ufone launched its Youth Brand. Now Telenor has a marketing strategy based on customized service provision. This is because the youth market is much more rationale in making decisions and since the target market is so wide a tailor made service is better than a more rigid offer.
Understanding its consumers, Djuice aggressively markets its GPRS and SMS bundles. All the recent campaigns emphasize fun. Even Djuice’s tag line goes like ‘Djuice it’s fun to be young’. Djuice has always tried to grab the attention of the young generation through coming up with surprisingly cheap and innovative offers.
The Marketing Mixture
Telenor’s Djuice, since is the market leader in the market that it caters, the blend of marketing mix it possesses is quite interesting.
Product

...BIASED EDUCATION SYSTEM OF PAKISTAN AND ITS CONSEQUENCES “I go to school, I am in sixth grade, can I speak as fluently and write as efficiently as you can Madame when I will reach you age?” asked my maid’s daughter one day with a bright sparkle in her eyes. Her question caught my heart and I stared her for a moment and realized that would saying “YES” is true enough or saying “NO” is justified? Alas, I couldn’t answer her question, for even I am amazed what the answer could be. The high low standards are not only the matter of brands, luxuries and fame, this dune of difference has captured a huge market in all domains, especially the education sector. The concept of slum schools (generally known as PEELA SCHOOL culture in our society), that are being opened in most of the poor streets and eating up lot of funds in the name of providing education. A number of small private schools, charging a huge amount of fees and a lot of government school, which are only used for election purpose in our country. The gap among the classes have crushed the mentality of every person, even two persons holding same degree are not qualified at the same level. Is that they are not competent enough to learn? Or they are not wealthy enough to afford big schools, or they don’t have shaky tongues to speak so called shaky English that they can become a burger child? It is all because of ununiformed standard of education system. If we particularly have a glimpse of Pakistan, there are several......

Why Is Red Bull One of the Most Successful Energy Drinks in the World?

...Why is Red Bull one of the most successful energy drinks in the world? Your essay must explain how and why Red Bull has selected their target market, positioned their product and created a brand that supports their positioning. By: Tegan Effting March 2010 Introduction Red bull is an energy drink; a functional beverage that claims to “give you wings!” It certainly worked for Dieter Mateschitz and Chaelo Yoovidhya, the creators of Red Bull, who have soared into the shared position number 208 on the Forbes list of richest billionaires of 2010 with individual net worths of $4.1 billion self created between the launch date in 1987 and today. So what is it that has made Red Bull one of the most successful energy drinks in the world? Designed to improve stamina, the ingredients of Red Bull boost performance by increasing alertness, concentration and reaction speed, making it the perfect supplement for periods of heightened physical pressure and mental stress. (Simpson J & B Dore, 2008). The drink is a variant of Yoovidhya’s Krating Daeng, a tonic discovered by Mateschitz who was awed by its powerful effect on reducing his jetlag post travel to the Far East. Mateschitz had experienced nothing as effective in the Western market and saw huge potential for a more palatable version amongst the Westerners, who needed more than one of the few existing sports energy drinks to help relieve them of the symptoms of a busy lifestyle. In 2006 it was recorded that more than......

How Do the Most Successful Companies Use Social Media?

...How do the most successful companies use social media? By Nora Ganim Barnes 8 Spring 2010 Tweeting and blogging to the top The Center for Marketing Research at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, under the direction of researchers Barnes and Mattson, recently conducted a new in-depth and statistically significant study on the usage of social media in fast-growing corporations. This new study revisits the Center’s study of Inc. 500 social media usage for the third consecutive year, making it a valuable and rare longitudinal study of corporate use of these new technologies. (For a complete list and executive summaries see www.umassd.edu/cmr.) The new study compares adoption of social media over the last three years (2007, 2008 and 2009) by the Inc. 500, a list of the fastestgrowing private U.S. companies compiled annually by Inc. magazine. The 2009 Inc. 500 list was released in the September issue of Inc. magazine. In this third iteration, 30 percent (148) of the Inc. 500 participated. The companies include five of the top 10, 12 of the top 25 and 38 of the top 100 companies from the Inc. 500 list. All interviews were conducted with the chief marketing officer or other marketing professional at each company. Questions probed respondents about their familiarity with six prominent social media tools (blogging, podcasting, online video, social networking, message boards and wikis). This included the popular micro blogging service Twitter and other popular social......

We would like to thank Miss Rizwana Hameed for their guidance and constant supervision as well as for providing necessary information and invested his full effort in guiding us in achieving the goal. Abstract Telecom industry, collection of all the industries and companies providing phone service, data or entertainment to consumers and businesses, is the fastest growing industry in Pakistan. As recently as 1994, trained basically in voice telecomm technologies, a Divisional Engineer at a PTCL city exchange could not believe that data could also be sent over a telephone line via some means! In 2003, the government de-regulated Telecom policy of PTA. This deregulation of policy allowed access for local and international companies to invest in telecom industry more flexibly than ever. New companies came into market and due to high competition rates went cheaper and cheaper, hence making telecom-oriented services affordable to many. This resulted rapid growth of telecom. New services are expected to get launched in future. These new services would keep Telecom in its hay day at least for next 6-7 years. Therefore for......

GENERATION NEXT 30 May 2010 MASTERS OF THEIR UNIVERSE: MEET THE GROUP THAT ACCOUNTS FOR MOST OF OUR POPULATION WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT ... Today’s youth rule! Picture: JEREMY GLYN HOW AND WHY THE STUDY WORKS ● Their annual direct spend, as per the study, is over the R95bn mark ● They are the key household inf luencers — to the tune of more than 60% ● They are the future consumers of all brands “They are mavens who give a good sense of the ‘next big thing’. They provide strong indicators of where the market is going” JASON LEVIN, MD OF HDI YOUTH MARKETEERS W HY should the world care if nine-year-olds prefer Milo cereal to Coco Pops? So what if teens want to watch Trace this year when they were hooked on MTV last year? And if youngsters’ primary device is a cellphone, is that really going to change the world? Although less often than before, we are still confronted by “youth cynics” after the Sunday Times Generation Next study is published every year. Their concern, generally, is that youth are still a relatively marginal market segment, so why do a brand preference study? South Africa, like most developing countries, has a very young population — more of our citizens are 22 — the age limit of the study — or younger than those who are older. So, with a sample set aged between eight and 22, the study tracks the consumer behaviour......

The Most Successful Weapon of Wwii - the T-34 Tank

...General Patton was an admirer of the M1 Garand (the greatest implement ever devised, he call it). The M35 2½ was what was needed to move those vast supplies when and where necessary. On the other hand, the M4 Sherman (in most of its variants, except for the British Firefly and quite possibly the Easy-Eights) was vastly inferior in combat capabilities when compared to most other medium tanks, and definitely all heavies. The M10 3-inch GMC, and the far better 76mm armed M18 Hellcat were fine vehicles but suffered heavily from the US Army Tank/Tank Destroyer doctrine, where only Tank Destroyers could engage tanks while tanks should avoid tank to tank combat, usually leading to disastrous consequences since the Germans failed to follow said doctrine. All this nonsense was finally scrapped and the M26 came to be. So, let's head to the T34. Revolutionary is an understatement when applied to this magnificent piece of Soviet engineering (hold your shots, Christie fans!). Just to mention some of its characteristics we could say that it was fast, well armed, well protected, reliable, simple, sturdy, easy to build, easier to maintain, sporting an amazing ground pressure ratio, easy to man by crudely trained Siberian draftees, economical, and to top it all handsome as hell.

America's Most Successful Family Businesses

...Alex Vanarthos 11/26/2014 America's Most Successful Family Businesses Family businesses make up an incredible 34% of the S&P 500 Index, meaning over 170 of our nation's 500 largest companies are family owned (Caspar, Christian). To some, this figure is extremely surprising, as it shatters the commonly held misconception that family firms are simply "mom and pop shops." Although it is clear that family businesses are capable of incredible widespread success, exactly why this is the case is far less obvious. One way to gain some valuable insight into how and why so many effective family businesses exist is to closely examine the three in our nation that have had the most success: Cargill, Ford Motors, and Wal-Mart. In many ways, these businesses could not be more different; for instance, they operate in separate industries, and the levels and types of family involvement in the firms vary. Extensive analysis of these three corporations did, however, reveal that while no family, business, or family business is perfect, each company's achievements are directly attributable to its commitment to the common vision and identity instilled in the firm by the family. Cargill Cargill is a private corporation that works with "farmers, customers, governments and communities" to provide "food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services to the world......

Around 20 per cent of the company’s revenue comes from rural India and it plans to increase this by beefing-up its distribution by opening more outlets, he said. Presently, the company has 20,000 outlets pan-India. LG Electronics competes with Samsung, Philips and Whirlpool in the domestic market. India contributes 6 per cent to the company’s global revenue, he said, adding, “we expect it to double to 12 per cent in the next three years.” Over the next five-years, the company is hoping that India would emerge as its second biggest market, overtaking Korea which now holds that position, he said. The company set up its wholly-owned Indian unit in 1997 and has grown to be among the leading brands in the country’s fast growing consumer durables market. The company today launched its next generation 3D TV with FPR technology, priced at between `94,990-`1,64,990 and targets to sell 1-lakh units by end-this year. “We aim to be the market leader in 3D TV market with 50 per cent market share.
