Idea generation
“I saw families riding around
on scooters with kids
standing up and the mother
carrying a baby and sitting
pillion and decided to do
something about it. It started
as a quest for an affordable
transportation solution”.

SWOT analysis
STRENGTH Price, mileage, style, brand name,
all weather vehicle, first
innovation.
WEAKNESS Fiber body, low suspension power,
low engine capacity, light vehicle,
not suitable for hilly areas, delay due to
singur violation.

OPPORTUNITY Bikers can be motivated, auto rickshaw


& second hand market can be
motivated.

THREAT Other competitors (Bajaj, Maruti , Tara


STP
 Segmentation :Variable Used
 Geographic: rural and urban
 Demographic: family size & income.
 Behavioral: benefit & user status.
 Target Market: Executive two wheeler segment,
second hand car user, auto rickshaw market, middle and
lower income group people.
 Positioning: TATA intending to place in the mind of the
consumers as a people’s car.
 Strategic options: Undifferentiated marketing.
PRICING STRATEGY
 Though the one lakh price tag is not fixed by TATA
group, it was the word of mouth of people which fixed
that range. This expectation of people creates a big
challenge for the company. To accept this challenge
the following strategies are followed:-
• Target costing method
• Penetration pricing
• Low pricing policy with minimum profit margin.
Promotion activities
Enough use of one of the most important element of
promotion mix , publicity reduces the necessity of other
promotional devices for nano. Nano got publicity in the
following ways:-
• Publicity as “One lakh car” by mouth to mouth.
• Auto expo 2008,New Delhi & Geneva
• Publicity through print & electronic media
• Singur violation.
Promotion activities….
For other type of promotional activities ,cost factor that is 1
lakh price tag is to be keep in mind, TATA is going to launch
its nano mobile for indicom user, nano watches , nano T-shirts
available in Westside stores .

Advertising:- TV & other mass media will be less effective,


thus too much money will not be invested in this regard .
Mainly word of mouth advertising will get more emphasis.

Internet will be a major media for advertising.


Promotion activities….
Online buzz:-Nano has gone beyond the traditional methods
of advertising and promotion online .
Social Media communities:-
Official Orkut community Members - 6,906.
Official Facebook Group Fans - 4,210
Highest View Count on You Tube- 303,006 (it was
just under 3,00,000 when I began writing this
post)
No. of Blog Posts - 61,664
TATA have a blog on the official website where
they have been discussing quite interesting topics
and generally maintaining an active community.
distribution
• So far we know TATA, it’s business has been extended to the
overseas i.e. to the Europe, Africa, U.S & Australia.
• Hence it has n-number of showrooms in India & outside of
India.
• The exclusive showrooms are the best distribution channels
for TATA itself.
Post purchase service
• As Tata is going to provide this car with rupees one lakh only,
so it may not give the same service like it’s other vehicles.
• But it’s post purchase services will be better than a costlier
bike.
• Customers may get minimum three services from Tata in any
of it’s servicing center, all over the country.
• We the future customers, can also hope for additional services
from TATA group.
