Waiting And Delivery Time - the average time customers wait for receipt of goods. costumer increasingly prefer faster delivery channels. Spatial Convenience - the degree to which the marketing channel Makes It Easy For Customers To Purchase The Product. Product Variety - the assortment provided by the marketing channel. Service Backup - add on services (Credit, delivery, installation, repairs) provided by the channel. the greater the service backup, the greater the work provided by the channel.
  16. 16. Setting Objectives and Constraints 16 Classified - Highly Confidential – In order to develop channel structure, manager should decide on some goals to be achieved. – These goals must be in line with some other component of marketing mix, to anticipate collision among them. – These goals must be congruent with marketing and other general objectives and strategies of the firm
  17. 17. Identifying Major Channel Alternatives 17 Classified - Highly Confidential • Types Of Intermediaries . Identifying what alternatives are available and best suited for the purpose. • Number of Intermediaries – Exclusive distribution means severely limiting the number of intermediaries – Selective distribution relies on only some of the intermediaries willing to carry a particular product. – Intensive distribution places the goods or services in as many outlets as possible.
  18. 18. Identifying Major Channel Alternatives 18 Classified - Highly Confidential • Terms and Responsibilities of Channel Members. Each channel member must be treated respectfully and given the opportunity to be profitable. The main elements in this regard are: – Price policy calls for the producer to establish a price list and schedule of discounts and allowances that intermediaries see as equitable and sufficient. – Conditions of sale refers to payment terms and producer guarantees.Most producers grant cash discounts to distributors for early payment. They might also offer a guarantee against defective merchandise or price declines, creating an incentive to buy larger quantities. – Distributors’ territorial rights define the distributors’ territories and the terms under which the producer will enfranchise other distributors. – Mutual services and responsibilities must be carefully spelled out, especially in franchised and exclusive-agency channels.
  19. 19. Evaluating Major Channel Alternatives 19 Classified - Highly Confidential Evaluation Criteria • Economic criteria compares the likely sales costs and profitability of different channel members • Control refers to channel members’ control over the marketing of the product • Adaptive criteria refers to the ability to remain flexible to adapt to environmental changes
  20. 20. Channel Management Decisions 20 Classified - Highly Confidential • Selecting channel members • Training channel members • Motivating channel members • Evaluating channel members • Modifying channel design and arrangements • Global Channel Considerations
  21. 21. Channel Management Decisions 21 Classified - Highly Confidential • Selecting Channel Members. To select the appropriate channel members, producers should determine what characteristics distinguish the better intermediaries such as: – number of years in business – other lines carried, growth – profit record – financial strength – Cooperativeness – service reputation • Training and Motivating Channel Members. Carefully implemented training, market research, and other capability- building programs can motivate and improve intermediaries’ performance. The company must constantly communicate the importance of intermediaries in a joint effort to satisfy end users of the product.
  22. 22. Channel Management Decisions 22 Classified - Highly Confidential • Evaluating Channel Members. Producers must periodically evaluate intermediaries’ performance against standards such as: – sales quota attainment – average inventory levels – customer delivery time – treatment of damaged and lost goods – cooperation in promotional and training programs • Underperformers need to be counseled, retrained, motivated, or terminated. • Modifying Channel Design and Arrangements. In competitive markets with low entry barriers, the optimal channel structure will inevitably change over time. The change could mean: – adding or dropping individual market channels or channel members or – developing a totally new way to sell goods.
  23. 23. Channel Management Decisions 23 Classified - Highly Confidential • Global Channel Considerations. International markets pose distinct challenges, including variations in customers’ shopping habits, but opportunities at the same. Companies must: – Try to get close to customers in order to understand their needs and wants. – modify and design channels to satisfy the customers.
  24. 24. Channel Integration & Systems 24 Classified - Highly Confidential • Vertical Marketing Systems. A conventional marketing channel consists of an independent producer, wholesaler(s), and retailer(s). Each is a separate business seeking to maximize its own profits, even if this goal reduces profit for the system as a whole.No channel member has complete or substantial control over other members. A vertical marketing system (VMS), by contrast, includes the producer, wholesaler(s), and retailer(s) acting as a unified system. There are three types: – Corporate VMS combines successive stages of production and distribution under single ownership. – Administered VMS coordinates successive stages of production and distribution through the size and power of one of the members. Manufacturers of dominant brands can secure strong trade cooperation and support from resellers.
  25. 25. Channel Integration & Systems 25 Classified - Highly Confidential – Contractual VMS consists of independent firms at different levels of production and distribution, integrating their programs on a contractual basis to obtain more economies or sales impact than they could achieve alone. • Horizontal Marketing Systems. Another channel development is the horizontal marketing system, in which two or more unrelated companies put together resources or programs to exploit an emerging marketing opportunity. The companies might work together on a temporary or permanent basis or create a joint venture company.
  26. 26. Channel Integration & Systems 26 Classified - Highly Confidential • Integrating Multichannel Marketing Systems. An integrated marketing channel system is one in which the strategies and tactics of selling through one channel reflect the strategies and tactics of selling through one or more other channels. Adding more channels gives companies three important benefits: – increased market coverage. – lower channel cost – more customized selling
  27. 27. E-Commerce 27 Classified - Highly Confidential • E-Commerce uses a Web site to transact or facilitate the sale of products and services online. Online retailers can predictably provide convenient, informative, and personalized experiences for vastly different types of consumers and businesses. By saving the cost of retail floor space, staff, and inventory, online retailers can profitably sell low-volume products to niche markets. Online retailers compete in three key aspects of a transaction: – customer interaction with the Web site – Delivery – ability to address problems when they occur.
  28. 28. 28 Classified - Highly Confidential E-Commerce • E-commerce Type – Pure click companies are those that have launched a Web site without any previous existence as a firm. – Brick-and-click companies are existing companies that have added an online site for information or e- commerce.
