found gratitude & indebt ness to all the people who have been instrumental in making my tanning a rich experience. I got the opportunity to do a challenging project in dealer. The project is the important part of our study and gives us a real practical exposure to the corporate world and it is almost impossible to do the same without the guidance of peoples in and around us. Practical study is the area which confirms the theoretical idea of a subject. Both are essential tool in order to provide any marketing strategy, design implementation and their uses. The survey is nothing but gathering data of any theoretical marketing strategy. These two aspects are in similarity to the learning and knowledge.

INTRODUCTION
Dealer behavior is the study of how he purchases, how he sells, how they get feedback from consumers and after that he came to conclusion about particular LG product. It is a subcategory of marketing that blends elements from different fields. It attempts to understand the buyer decision making process, both individually and in groups. It studies characteristics of individual consumers such as demographics, psychographics and behavioral variables in an attempt to understand peoples wants. It also tries to assess influences on the consumer from groups such as Family, friends, reference groups, and society in general. By understanding the consumer, we will be able to make a more informed decision as to which strategy to employ.

Research Findings i.e. Findings from the Research Work/Survey One Dealer centre is closed in phase-2 due to improper demand. Most of the revenue generated by LG TV in the comparison to its others products.

With this research we find that the awareness about the LG products is more.

43

The role of media is very effective in making people aware about the LG brand specially Television plays an important role to influence the peoples. So we found that the products are many more with the dealers but the demand of Television is very high as selling of TV is much more than that of others.

After analyzing the data we find that LG having a good position in the market and almost taking advantages in every area as compared to the other brands.

We also get that customers get influenced by various factors and make their buying decision. The most influencing factor is brand image and advertising is the second influencing factor in buying decision.

Suggestions and recommendations

Company should make advertisement of LG products aggressively


in the way of hoardings which increase the more visualizes customer.

Company should provide credit facility to the dealer in a better way


by which they can increase their sale

Dealers should consider the demand of people time to time so that


they come to know what people want in a particular period of time.

44

LG needs to mend and maintain its service network


and adopt a good pricing strategy.

Limitations in research

No of dealers were very less in Meerut so we had to reduce


our sample size.

Sample size could be more so that the better results could


come.

45

As Meerut is a big city so we faced so many problems during


our survey.

Sometimes respondents were no willing to fill the


questionnaire or we have to wait for long time to talk or we have to talk only with their helper boys.

CONSUMER SURVEY DURING EXHIBITION From 21th feb. to 09th march a consumer exhibition was organized at the college of Engineering ground. The exhibition was sponsored by Sakal group in which number of companies participated.

46

EXHIBITIONS PICTURES SHOWING THE PRODUCTS

CONCLUSION

Coming to home from a tiring job and then to open the wardrobe just to bad smelling dirty clothes waiting to receive the delicacies of your hand can easily draw tears from your eyes, but now an easy solution available in almost all households is the presence of LG refrigerator. My study found that, the dealers are somewhat satisfied with the LG Company but some retailers are not satisfied by the company neither in the way of credit facility nor by the distribution system of LG.

47

About the LG company I found that LG having a good position in the market in terms of pricing but lacking badly in terms of its retailer satisfaction. Customer gets to know more by the television and they are influenced to buy new products by the unique products that are newly come to the market. My study also found that there are various factor influencing customer in buying decision and the most influencing factor is brand image and advertisement and other factors play a secondary role in buying decision .
