MGT301 Priniciples of marketing - Assignment 2 Fall 2012 - due date 29 January 2013

To capture a bigger pie of market share, companies pay distinct consideration on
promotional strategies. Promotion is important for companies in many ways. It helps to
establish the perceived value for product/service in the minds of the customers against
competitor's product, inform the customers about the availability and utility of
product/service, creates awareness and helps in positioning and repositioning the
product/service. With appropriate promotional tools and strategies, companies persuade
people to purchase or repurchase the product/service, survive/win the competition and
penetrate in the market. Even for the development of new markets, the appropriate and
intelligent use of promotional tools and strategies play an acute role.
Unilever is one of the largest companies
and is a subsidiary of Lever Brothers
Pakistan Limited. In 1993, Lever
Brothers formulated a team to search
for new business potential in Pakistan. After market analysis, the team concluded that

in Pakistan. February 1995, WALL’S ice-cream was launched with twelve products.

advertisement and one to one bases. The medium used in WALL’S promotional activities
are TV, billboards, newspapers, magazines, radio, banners, pamphlets, sponsorship of
pop stars, actors, models, event arrangements, bus stop board and fun carnival carried out
in different parks such as Racecourse Park in Lahore. As far as its price and image is
concerned, people perceived that WALL’S is a high quality ice-cream and typically
targeted the affluent urban class. In order to penetrate in the market, WALL’S should
increase its distribution areas where it is not yet available specifically in rural areas.
Read the aforementioned case with utmost care to answer the following Questions.
Question 01: What advertising objectives WALL'S are applying to increase its customer
base and stimulate more usage? (10 marks)
Question 02: Let's suppose that WALL'S is going to launch a new Ice-cream to capture
the rural areas of Pakistan. How WALL'S could modify its promotional or advertising
campaigns, keeping in mind the conservative and orthodox culture of the rural areas. (10
