The following section focuses on the 3Cs of marketing for King And Roberts B where the business's customers, competitors and core competencies have actually assessed in order to validate whether the decision to introduce Case Study Help under King And Roberts B brand name would be a feasible choice or not.

Both the groups use King And Roberts B high efficiency adhesives while the business is not just involved in the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these customer groups. We would be focusing on the consumers of immediate adhesives for this analysis given that the market for the latter has a lower potential for King And Roberts B compared to that of instant adhesives.
The overall market for instant adhesives is approximately 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both client groups which have actually been identified earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of King And Roberts B possible market or consumer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Original Equipment Producers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair work and revamping business (MRO) and manufacturers dealing in items made of leather, metal, wood and plastic.

The client is not cost delicate or brand name conscious so launching a low priced dispenser under King And Roberts B name is not a suggested choice.
King And Roberts B is not simply a manufacturer of adhesives but delights in market leadership in the instantaneous adhesive market. The business has its own skilled and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core skills are not limited to adhesive production only as King And Roberts B also focuses on making adhesive dispensing devices to help with making use of its items. This dual production technique offers King And Roberts B an edge over rivals given that none of the rivals of dispensing equipment makes instantaneous adhesives. Additionally, none of these rivals sells directly to the consumer either and makes use of distributors for connecting to consumers. While we are taking a look at the strengths of King And Roberts B, it is important to highlight the company's weaknesses also.
Although the company's sales personnel is knowledgeable in training suppliers, the fact remains that the sales group is not trained in offering equipment so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive devices.

If King And Roberts B offers Case Study Help under the same portfolio, the possibility of sales cannibalization exists. Offered the truth that Case Study Help is priced lower than King And Roberts B high-end product line, sales cannibalization would definitely be affecting King And Roberts B sales income if the adhesive devices is sold under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting King And Roberts B 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is introduced under the company's brand name, there is another possible risk which might lower King And Roberts B profits. The reality that $175000 has been invested in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for releasing a dispenser which can highlight the truth that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instant adhesive.

However, the reality stays that the supplier does not have much influence over the buyer at this point particularly as the buyer does disappoint brand name recognition or cost level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a major control over the real sales, this shows that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instantaneous adhesive market suggests that the market permits ease of entry. If we look at King And Roberts B in particular, the business has dual abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers.

Product & Target Market: The target market selected for Case Study Help is 'Motor vehicle services' for a number of reasons.

Price: The suggested price of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through suppliers or by means of direct selling. This rate would not include the expense of the 'vari pointer' or the 'glumetic pointer'.

Place: A distribution design where King And Roberts B directly sends the product to the local supplier and keeps a 10% drop delivery allowance for the distributor would be used by King And Roberts B. Because the sales group is already engaged in selling instantaneous adhesives and they do not have expertise in selling dispensers, including them in the selling procedure would be expensive specifically as each sales call costs approximately $120. The suppliers are already offering dispensers so offering Case Study Help through them would be a favorable alternative.
Promotion: Although a low promotional budget plan must have been appointed to Case Study Help but the reality that the dispenser is an innovation and it requires to be marketed well in order to cover the capital expenses incurred for production, the recommended advertising plan costing $51816 is suggested for initially presenting the item in the market.
