These differences could be tangible or intangible which ultimately helps to improve consumers’ lives and enhance the financial value of firms. What is Brand Equity? Brand equity has number of perspectives, but in essence means the value or perception created to a product or service in the minds of the consumer through the activities leading to create a strong consistent brand. This is also called “Brand goodwill” by accountants.

Customer Based Brand Equity Model (Cbbe)

...Customer Based Brand Equity Model (CBBE) The CBBE model approaches brand equity from the perspective of the customer – whether customer is an individual or an organization. The CBBE model provides a unique point of view as to what brand equity is and how it should best be built, measured and managed. The power of a brand lies in what customers have learned, felt, seen and heard about the brand as a result of their experiences over time. The big challenge for marketers is to ensure that customers have the right type of experiences with their products and services. In order to do this, marketers must develop marketing programs in way that best fit into customers' mind and linked the brand to the desire customers' feelings, thoughts, actions and beliefs. So that customer-based brand equity is defined as, the differential effect that brand knowledge has on consumer response to the marketing of that brand. Customer-Based Brand Equity Pyramid Brand Salience: It's means broad awareness of the brand. The first step in building a brand equity is the brand awareness that contains two parts; brand recognitioin (how easily customer identify a brand after exposing some cue or a physical product) and brand recall (how easily customer recall the brand without showing a cue while making purchase decision or thinking the product category).

Marketin Strategy of Bajaj

...Introduction Bajaj Motors is one of the largest and most competitive two wheeler manufacturing company of the world. It is present in over 50 countries all over the globe. The company is dominantly present in Africa and Latin America with increasing market share every year. Although Bajaj already exporting their product in Nigeria, but we think that they should plan to establish a manufacturing plant in that country. Pro’s and Con’s of entering the market ➢ The two wheeler market runs on high economies of scale. So it is very essential to capture the mass target market. Else, huge loss may occur. ➢ The need for technical expertise is high. ➢ Owning a strong distribution network is important and is very costly. ➢ Suppliers of auto components are fragmented and are extremely critical for this industry since most of the component work will be outsourced. Proper supply chain management is a costly yet a critical need. ➢ The industry rivalry is extremely high with any product being matched in a few months by competitor. This instinct of the industry is primarily driven by the technical capabilities acquired over years of gestation under the technical collaboration with international players. As Bajaj, along with its competitors, such as Hero Honda, TVS, Yamaha, are active at multipoint competitions; it is likely for the competitors to enter if Bajaj is successful at Nigeria. ➢ Petrol prices are always fluctuating in Nigeria.......

Bajaj Pulsar Market Analysis

.......................... 15 Future Strategies for Bajaj Pulsar ......................................................................................................... 17 Page 2 Executive Summary The Bajaj Pulsar launched in India in 2001 creating a revolution and a market for itself in motorcycle market. Pulsar targeted males from age 18-20 with a tagline ‘Definitely Male’ which was a huge successful campaign. The first big launch of Bajaj after disassociating from Kawasaki, currently Pulsar has 5 variants in the market with varying engine capacity. Analysis into how Bajaj has captured the market shows us that a good mix of high operational standards like having a wide distributing network and a very successful branding campaign has made Pulsar a market leader. With a wide range of engine capacity and high fuel efficiency Pulsar has its strength is embedded in Indian society. Also it has huge growth opportunities in south and east Asian countries and also in the 250cc plus sections of sports biking. It has its drawback when it comes to differentiating in styles. The 135cc and 220cc with similar styling decreases the brand value for the 220cc bike. Its battle within itself due to strikes seem its biggest threat for now. The Pest analysis of Bajaj Pulsar produces some important results. It tells us how the demographics of India has given an impetus to Pulsar as it targets the youth. Further the biggest strength of Pulsar lies in its technology. The rising fuel prices......

Customer Satisfaction Towards Hero Bikes

...social animal. He has to make a contact with his fellow beings; hence he has to travel one destination to another. The progress of automobile industry tries to full fill this purpose with the help of four wheelers and especially two wheelers. When we take into consideration of our country India, it is a fast growing developing country. This growth can be seen in the field of automobile industry also. India is a very good market of many globalized automobile giant brands like Mercedes-Benz, Vox Wagon, Fiat, Toyota, Hero, Yamaha, Bajaj etc. In this scenario it would be better to mention about the satisfaction of customers who are using the vehicles. In a competitive marketplace where businesses compete for customers, customer satisfaction is seen as a key differentiator and increasingly has become a key element of business strategy. The customer satisfaction varies from person to person and also one group to another. In the marketing context it is important to understand about the satisfaction level of the customers based on the analysis of data. In earlier periods, i.e. immediately after the independence dependence of foreign technology was banned and manufacturers were forced to localize their products. The automotive industry in our country declined under the government’s stifling restrictions and the Indian buyer was saddled with products of appalling quality. This attempt at self-sufficiency failed miserably because of the industry’s isolation from the best technology.......

Bajaj Pulsar

...company in High-end Products Brand Name: Bajaj Pulsar Parent Company: Bajaj Auto Category: Motorcycles Sector: Two-wheeler Tagline/ Slogan : Definitely Male, The Fastest Indian USP: Powerful engine and good pickup Product Description- Bajaj Pulsar The Bajaj Pulsar is a motorcycle brand owned by Bajaj Auto in India. The two wheeler was developed by the product engineering division of Bajaj Auto in association with Tokyo R&D,[1] and later with motorcycle designer Glynn Kerr. Currently there are five variants available, with engine capacities of 135 cc, 150 cc, 180 cc, 200 cc, and 220 cc. previously it was also offered with a 200 cc DTS-i oil cooled engine, which now has been discontinued. Instead a new version Pulsar 200NS was launched in 2012.[2] With an average monthly sales of around 86,000 units in 2011, Pulsar claimed a 2011 market share of 47% in its segment.[3] By April 2012, more than five million units of Pulsar were sold.[4] Before the introduction of the Pulsar, the Indian motorcycle market trend was towards fuel efficient, small capacity motorcycles (that formed the 80–125 cc class). Bigger motorcycles with higher capacity virtually did not exist (except for Enfield Bullet). The launch and success of Hero Honda CBZ in 1999 showed that there was demand for performance bikes. Bajaj took the cue from there on and launched the Pulsar twins in India on 24 November 2001.[5] Since the introduction and success of Bajaj Pulsar, Indian youth began expecting......

Walmart Customer Based Brand Equity

...Customer Based Brand Equity – Wal-Mart Class Discussion Wal-Mart is a transnational mega corporation operating in 27 countries with more than 11 000 stores. In Canada alone, Wal-Mart operates 396 retail outlets quite an impressive number considering they have only been operating in Canada for just over 20 years. Wal-Mart in terms of Brand Equity is quite a contradiction. They continue to lose overall brand value and yet are still the most valuable brand in North America and are ranked in the top 20 brands based on brand value globally. Wal-Mart is a love it or hate it brand. Despite its value, it has nearly as many detractors and is it supporters of the brand. Class Demo Raise your hand if you have heard of Wal-Mart before I started talking today? Raise your hand if you have ever been inside a Wal-Mart? Raise your hand if you have ever purchased anything at all in Wal-Mart? Now, how many of you dislike Wal-Mart? As you can see from this little demonstration, even though we all know and have been in a Wal-Mart we do not necessarily look favorably upon Wal-Mart. This leads me to the first part of Keller’s Model of Customer Based Brand Equity; Brand Salience. Brand Salience: Wal-Mart is brand salient in the fact that as we can see people are very aware and very familiar with the brand. It is part of a lot of people’s consideration sets when shopping and it is seen as value for money. Where Wal-Mart struggles the most in terms of brand salience is......

Bajaj Pulsar

...Bajaj Pulsar : Definitely Male Brand : Pulsar Company: Bajaj Auto Agency ;O&M, Leo Burnett Brand Count : 226 Pulsar is one of my favorite brands both as a bike rider and as a marketer. This bike has virtually redefined biking in this country. Pulsar launched in 2001 is the market leader in the 150 cc + performance bike segment. More than that , this brand changed the fortune of Bajaj Auto Ltd. Before the launch of Pulsar, Indian bike market was divided broadly into Economy,Executive and Premium Bikes. In 1999 Hero Honda created a new segment of 150 cc performance segment with its CBZ. But Pulsar came and gave a new life into the Performance segment. Although not a pioneer, Pulsar made the performance segment one of the fastest growing segment in the two wheeler market. It was not only the bike's performance that triggered the brand becoming an icon, a major part of the success was due to the classic advertising campaign by O&M. According to agencyfaqs, the birth of the "Definitely Male " campaign is interesting. The creative honchos found the new product from Bajaj distinctly different. It was Bajaj's first bike without Kawasaki label. The new bike was an R&D and design marvel.Pulsar was designed by the renowned design house Tokyo R&D. O&M knew that the communication of this brand should also be different.Starting with lot of ideas, O&M stuck upon the Big Idea of India's He-Bike. Although lot of bike take the persona of Macho bikes it was...
