SWOT ANALYSIS: Strengths: Government support: Being the biggest local force in the industry AMCL always had government by its side. Government has been supporting PRAN in many ways like subsidies, export subsidies, tariffs on foreign competitors etc. First movers advantage: PRAN entered the market when the product was still very new to the consumers and there was little or no presence of any other local companies with such investment. Therefore PRAN had the first movers advantage which they are still enjoying till now. Internal strength: AMCL has a very powerful management team to guide a strong gigantic workforce. Despite its huge size PRAN has been able to maintain labor productivity and increasing sales. Its labor productivity is twice as much as any other local company in the market (Not foreign companies). Market share: PRAN AMCL has a great competitive advantage over the other competitors. As mentioned earlier it is the largest fruit and vegetable processing industry in Bangladesh and holds the biggest share in markets in Bangladesh among the local companies. PRAN has the largest sales in fruit drinks after Coca-Cola and PepsiCo. Weaknesses: External threats: Too much competition from international organizations, for example Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, RC-Cola, Virgin Cola, Rasna (India), Shezan (Pakistan) etc. Internal weaknesses: Large size of the business and workforce makes it difficult to manage perfectly. As a result it often causes internal conflict. Opportunities Existing competitor of the current market is not that much strong which the pran company has. Pran can be export to other countries. Existing distribution channel is being used. High growth rate in this industry. Threats Competitor can produce the same product.

Downward pressure on pricing. Political instability, economy etc. New innovation from other competitors could be a threat.

Since our budget is limited we will not be using all of the media to advertise but we will select the media that can gain higher impressions.

Review of our media selection and Budget: Most of our budget will be allocated to the four major media:

Television Newspaper(print media) Radio Internet

Other Allocation: Outdoor(Billboards or Posters) Sponsoring and event organizations Additional campaign costs

TV advertising:
Now a day there are a lot of alternative forms of advertising a product which are getting more and more popular day by day inBangladesh. But till now television advisement is the most effective and popular medium of advertising a product or service.

The tariff structure of advertisement varies depending upon the type of media and the time or space used. A 30-seconds advertisement on Bangladesh Television is charged Tk 9,450 at peak hours (7 PM till the end of day's transmission) and the amount increases by surcharge (50% for fixed time, 70% for immediately before or after the news, 80% for mid-breaks in films and 100% for mid-break in news). Rates are almost half during transmission hours before 7 PM. The commercial time allowed to a sponsor in a 60-minute programme is up to 180 seconds and the rate charged per episode or programme is Tk 80,000 early time, Tk 100,000 for peak time. Bangladesh Television offers a discount of 25% on advertisements of books and magazines not containing any advertisement and activities of registered cultural organizations and voluntary organizations. Guidebooks for admission tests and competitive examinations, test papers and publishing houses do not get this discount facility. Bangladesh television however, imposes an additional surcharge of 60% on spot and sponsored advertisement for all products, which are produced or assembled outside the country.

We will show the ad at peak hours after 7 pm because most of the people watches tv on that time.

In house and outdoor in Bangladesh: Advertisement media in Bangladesh can be classified into two categories based on the placement strategy - Above the Line (ATL) category and Below the Line (BTL) category, each claiming about 50% of the total revenue. ATL includes newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and satellite and cable television. Placement strategies under BTL includes event management, in-house advertisement (company performing own advertisement) at point of purchase, outdoor advertisement (billboards, hoarding, neon signs, and bell signs), innovative activities (jatra, street drama) and advertisement on vehicle bodies or fliers. The market size of the formal advertising agencies accounted for about Tk 2 billion , while, in-house and outdoor advertisements by manufacturing or service providing companies and the informal agencies (non-registered agencies and individuals) accounted for about another Tk 1 billion.

Radio: Rates charged by the Bangladesh Radio are much less: Tk 600 for each

transmission of a 15-seconds advertisement from 1st to 51st time. Bangladesh Radio charges Tk 45,000 for sponsorship of a cricket match and Tk 30,000 for that of a football match.

Advertisement tariff for newspapers varies between Tk 400 and Tk 800 per column inch in inside pages; it is about three times higher in back pages.
