prospective customers into first time research, users Amul can realize increase in sales figure. By increasing frequency of advertising and proving display materials, Amul can simulate retailer to store more Amul gulab jamun and consumer to buy more. Consumer awareness can be increased. No doubt Amul is a very strong brand name in the dairy industry but for gulab jamun product Amul has a poor image in the mind of retailer as well as consumer compare to Gits and Ramdev. So it is necessary to build a positive band image of Amul gulab jamun instant mix and tin. Many consumer complain about the Amul gulab jamun tin that gulab jamun are not so soft and fresh as clatterers. So the gulab jamun should be made soft and also we can make it of round shape. Retailers are not keeping Amul gulab jamun instant mix in their stores because there is not replacement facility. And product also comes late after the manufacturing date.

Other strategies Exclusive dealing.. An ethical way for strengthen you position!!! When the marketer wants that the dealer doesnt handle competitors products, this is called exclusive dealing. Both parties benefit from this arrangement the marketer obtain more loyal and dependable outlets, and dealer obtain a steady source of supply of demanded product and stronger marketer support. Customer care. For enforcing your position!!! Such handsome words are becoming need for any marketer. Each organization needs well established system to care for company customers which handle various activities like satisfaction interview, quality survey, urgent handling of their complains, replacement for genuine complaints, and many other things to create and retain loyal customers. Which is the brand value for the company. Customer here does not mean only consumer of the product but also includes dealer and retailer of the product. Advertising A necessity for effective communication!!!

Informative advertising aims to create awareness the knowledge of new product for new feature of existing product e.g. some problem with variety awareness can be solved through such advertising. Information advertising has advertises which has detailed information about contents about products, its uses and various benefits which are offered by the product. Distribution channel member As a true business partner. Every member of distribution should be treated as true business partner and some mutually beneficially arrangement must be established which serve to the ultimate goal of customer satisfaction but by providing good quality product and easy availability of it. Every one should involve achieving this goal by anyhow. Distributor are acquainted with field staff assistants, while retailer are giving poor view about it. Regular visit of field staff to dealer is necessary to find solution of their problem. It is not possible to meet frequently to all of them but regular route should be followed, which cover attainable dealer per day. Thus all the dealer can be covered at regular interval and their confidence can be won by hearing to their problems. Similar look packaging of private player is creating confusion among customers and also sometimes and also dealers are passing such products to illiterate consumers. Therefore by anyhow such presence in the market should be prevented i.e. by legally or others. Ex. Ramesh Chauhan, CEO of Parle, copyright hexagonal shape of mineral water packaging bottle for its brand Bisleri, so no other can copy such hexagonal shape botteling.

Conclusion

By analyzing the survey finding it is concluded that Amul is a leader in the dairy industry. Amul julab jamun has a very low market share even though Amul has a positive image in the mind of retailers. To compete with MNC such as Gits, GCMMMF have to build a strong brand image for gulab jamun product. For that Amul have to provide more display materials and replacement facility to the retailers and has to rethink advertising strategy for gulab jamun. It is never too late to capture a market if you have a better performing brand. Only it has to be new different and better. Lindsay Owen John (Loreals Chairman)
