product marketing strategy - which one to choose?

Consumers of the food sector are the most difficult target group, exposed to the greatest competition in elections. The key to entering the market and maintaining a stable position of the company is marketing strategy product. Precise definition of its goals and implementation tools will effectively increase profits. We suggest which strategy to choose and what to pay attention to.

Product marketing strategy is based on two fundamental pillars. We are talking about defining the target group and analyzing the competition. Our customer's purchasing profile will allow us to choose the tools, channels and language of communication. Monitoring the activities of competitors and drawing conclusions will ensure originality and uniqueness. It is also a chance to learn from the mistakes of those we want to win. These two key steps will take you to a specific marketing strategy for your product.

Product Marketing Strategy Increases Profits 

After determining the target group and analyzing the competition, we should precisely set the goals of the strategy being undertaken and choose the tools. In order for all of our activities to be optimal, you should decide to operate within a specific model that the product marketing strategy will adopt.

  • Skimming strategy – that is, a quick “cream pick-up”. Assumes launching the product on the market at an inflated price, with intensive promotional activities. After time - a gradual reduction of the price, as a result of gaining the trust of the appropriate group of customers and with a decrease in demand. Then, as sales increase, so does profit. This strategy is most successful for novelties and food products that do not have much competition.
  • The strategy of slow "cream picking". It relates to the previous strategy, but gives much later results. It assumes a reduction in marketing expenses. It will work when the company takes an unchallenged position and can afford such action within one product.
  • Rapid market penetration strategy. It assumes setting a low price of the product with very intensive marketing and promotional activities. They will result in intensive market entry and fairly quick stable profits.  
  • Strategy of free market penetration. It is based on setting a low price and limiting expenses for promotional purposes. The slowest and requires a lot of knowledge and practice. Aimed at companies that have a stable position of leaders in their segment with strong competition, and their consumers are sensitive to high prices.

On our website, we describe in detail specific models of marketing strategies. Choosing one of them should be preceded by a thorough analysis and consultation with a specialist who will show us the best direction - suggests Bartosz Zieliński from the Commplace agency.

What actions can we take within the marketing strategy of a food industry product while implementing it? First of all, the product's marketing strategy is based on consistent and constantly updated activities. The change will be beneficial in those cases when active market monitoring shows a decline in interest in a given product. We can then use changes in communication, graphic design, new activities within social media, and loyalty programs - advises an expert from Commplace. Cyclical raising and lowering of prices is also very important, which goes hand in hand with the market situation, the sales stage and the context that Christmas is undoubtedly in the near future.
