Existing STP
Identify the existing segmentation and targeting strategy

Positioning – Core positioning of Amagi has been to create a unique value proposition for the media
industry by providing below set of values:

Broadcasters can launch their channels worldwide using the company’s cloud based technology without
having to install any hardwire in their office. Amagi today manages over 100 channels and delivers it to
worldwide audiences across 40 countries.

Content is delivered worldwide both on traditional cable satellite and OTT platforms. In broadcasting,
over-the-top content (OTT) is the audio, video, and other media content delivered over
the Internet without the involvement of a multiple-system operator (MSO) in the control or distribution
of the content.

Geo targeted advertising in TV channels as well as online video space at reduced cost and higher ROI to
advertisers. Here Amagi buys spots from TV channels and splits it amongst different advertisers based
on the geography they want the ad to be targeted. Advertisers hence pay a much lesser amount for geo
targeted advertising compared to paying for the national rollout of the ad.

PESTLE Analysis

Let’s look at the macro-environmental factors at fresh –

Political Factors

These are all about how and to what degree a government intervenes in the economy. This
can include – government policy, political stability or instability in overseas markets, foreign
trade policy, tax policy, labour law, environmental law, trade restrictions and so on.It is
clear from the list above that political factors often have an impact on organisations and
how they do business. Organisations need to be able to respond to the current and
anticipated future legislation, and adjust their marketing policy accordingly.

Economic Factors

Economic factors have a significant impact on how an organisation does business and also
how profitable they are. Factors include – economic growth, interest rates, exchange rates,
inflation, disposable income of consumers and businesses and so on.

These factors can be further broken down into macro-economical and micro-economical
factors. Macro-economical factors deal with the management of demand in any given
economy. Governments use interest rate control, taxation policy and government
expenditure as their main mechanisms they use for this.

Micro-economic factors are all about the way people spend their incomes. This has a large
impact on B2C organisations in particular.

Social Factors

Also known as socio-cultural factors, are the areas that involve the shared belief and
attitudes of the population. These factors include – population growth, age distribution,
health consciousness, career attitudes and so on. These factors are of particular interest as
they have a direct effect on how marketers understand customers and what drives them.

Technological Factors

We all know how fast the technological landscape changes and how this impacts the way
we market our products. Technological factors affect marketing and the management
thereof in three distinct ways:

•New ways of producing goods and services

•New ways of distributing goods and services

•New ways of communicating with target markets

Environmental Factors

5|Page
These factors have only really come to the forefront in the last fifteen years or so. They have
become important due to the increasing scarcity of raw materials, polution targets, doing
business as an ethical and sustainable company, carbon footprint targets set by
governments (this is a good example were one factor could be classes as political and
environmental at the same time). These are just some of the issues marketers are facing
within this factor. More and more consumers are demanding that the products they buy are
sourced ethically, and if possible from a sustainable source.

Legal Factors

Legal factors include - health and safety, equal opportunities, advertising standards,
consumer rights and laws, product labelling and product safety. It is clear that companies
need to know what is and what is not legal in order to trade successfully. If an organisation
trades globally this becomes a very tricky area to get right as each country has its own set
of rules and regulations.
