INDUSTRY PROFILE Introduction

An Overview: Media & Entertainment Industry :


The Indian Entertainment and Media Industry have out-performed the Indian economy and is one of the fastest growing sectors in India. It is rising on the back of economic growth and rising income levels that India has been experiencing in the past years. This is significantly benefiting the entertainment and media industry in India as this is a cyclically sensitive industry and it grows faster when the economy is expanding. An added boost to the entertainment and media industry in India is from the demographic point of view where the consumer spending is rising due to increasing disposable incomes on account of sustained growth in income levels and reduction of personal income tax over the last decade.

11

Other than the demographic and economic impetus provided by the Indian economy that is helping the entertainment and media industry to grow at this rapid face, there are several other factors, which are contributing to this high growth rate. Some of these are Low Media Penetration in lower socio-economic classes. Table below gives the media penetration in various segments of the E&M Industry today. As would be evident, the media penetration is varied across segments and across the socio-economic classes. A common factor, however, across the segments is the fact that though the media penetration is lower in lower socioeconomic classes, in terms of absolute numbers, the penetration is much higher in these classes. Hence, efforts to increase the penetration even slightly in these lower socio-economic classes are likely to delivery much higher results simply due to the higher numbers

12

Indian Advertising spends, as a percentage of GDP is only 0.34 per cent, which is way below the percentages for both developed and developing countries. This provides an immense potential for growth in since advertising revenues are key to every segment in the Indian entertainment and media industry. Even if India were to reach the global average, the advertising revenues generated would almost be equal to the current advertising revenues, which are estimated at about US$ 2.5 billion for 2005 fiscal.

Zee News in new look


Zee News has unveiled its new positioning with the focus on bringing life to Hindi journalism on television. From the earlier tagline of haqeeqt jaisi khabar vaisi the channel has now progressed to a more contemplative mode with Zara sochiye .

19

With a tag line of "ZARA SOCHIYE" ZEE NEWS the 24 hr. Hindi news channel from the Zee group of network has been ever since on a quest to bring out of truth. This is the channel belief that has been the guideline force in the dedication and Integrity of Zee news n reporting un biased news. As a socially responsible news channel. Zee news has dared to walk a different path to bring the truth out even if it means staying away from the hype and trivial sensationalism. Zee news globally has spread across most of Asia 'middle east Europe and America and has carved a unique position for itself in the global media space. The wide network of Zee news stretches out of more than 60 countries worldwide. Largest nationwide network of reporters and stingers connected through advance communication links.

Zee News programming is content driven and covers all genres with hard-hitting news to social service programming fro crime related news to glamour to sport news. The content driven programming at Zee News is perhaps what differentiates from the rest.

The channel has always been consider as a pioneer and leader in the field of investigative journalism, with programming that go dipper and far beyond the usual news and current affair programs.

Some new renowned faces are also added like. 20

1) Punya parsoon bajpai former channel head of sahara samay joining as consulting editor. 2) Manisha priyam (D.U. professor &London school of economic graduate) appointed as public policy advisor. 3) Anupam gosawami (business journalist) joined as consulting editor as business news. 4) A top retired cop as advisor on public safety issue. The most distinct news capsule, which only Zee News has, is news top 10, which packs in 60 nuggets from all spheres in 30 minute. The revamp and new look channel would return to hard core serious news with focus on reporters and reporting, heralding the comeback of channels news properties. As well as weekly news shows Inside Story , an investigative program and Special correspondent, a hardcore program on field reporting, would be back on channel. Zee News added four new properties 1) Halla bol: a reporter based weekly show (soft investigative program on public issue). 2) Kahiye Janab: a talk show featuring vip (hosted by swati chaturvedi). 3) Manthan : daily religious and spiritual wellness program

Some program are renamed and revitalized as 1) Bole To Bollywood renamed as Zee Multiplex to give it a modern touch. 2) Miyan biwi or TV renamed as House Arrest -Serial ki Grifat mein 21

3) Bachke Rehna (astrolog) will have a new face in the form of tarot card reader ruchira along with astrologer sandeep kocher. This repositioning activity took almost five-month time. It includes all activity as content to support news and look. The promotion value of the campaign is about Rs. 15 cr. Through barters and tie ups it restricted itself from cash burn to a negligible amount. Bates David Enterprise is the creative agency for zee news. Media plan done by newspapers and hoarding. A TVC was running on air to promote the changes that had been announced by Zee News. In India, exposure to print advertising in addition to television produced higher

advertising recall. It mean, if we use both way to advertise it will give great recall value to target audience and by using both ways Zee News try to show its greater knowledge of brand properties.

OUT DOOR MEDIA


Over the past few years, the outdoor advertising industry has evolved into a
rejuvenated media force to be reckoned with that's poised to compete aggressively in the 21st century media fray. While many traditional media segments have struggled to remain competitive in a period of economic strife, the outdoor industry has remained relatively unscathed and solvent due in large part to the strength of local sales as both national and regional brands have shifted a significant portion of advertising dollars to grassroots promotions. Outdoor offers outstanding value for the Rupee and a myriad of ways to ratchet up exposure. Whether matched with other media to extend reach or used extensively on its own to saturate a market, outdoor can't be beat. Its ubiquitous presence insures that when a consumer is ready to purchase, the brand is top of mind. Today it seems, consumers are in a hurry and outdoor provides quick and concise information to help individuals make rapid purchase or decision-making. Outdoor surrounds consumers with ubiquitous presence offering media choices that suit every target audience, geography and strategic plan. Outdoor is a comprehensive mix of effective media delivery mechanisms that reach people in their cars or on subways, in airports and malls or in any number of growing outdoor media settings. Outdoor is roadside, outside and inside, above and below ground and on the move.

24

The wide range of outdoor media advertisements comprises of hoardings, posters, banners, road shows, trade shows, kiosks, wall paintings, and signboards among others. The outdoor medium today constitutes 10 per cent of the media mix, up from around three per cent five years ago

Few uses/benefits of Outdoor Advertising:


1) Outdoor Advertising is available 24 2) Rapid Build up of Awareness - Quick return on advertising investment 3) Media Mix Reinforcement - Fills the gaps left by all other forms of media 4) Cost Efficiency - Low cost per thousand 5) Specific Market Penetration - Minimizes wasted exposure 6) Directional Support - Reaches audience while they are in the marketplace 7) Dominant Market Presence - Your message is larger than life 8) Continuity over purchase cycles - Cannot be turned off or put down 9) Flexibility and Mobility - Customized programs to obtain advertising goals 10) Quick Placement 11) Co-op advertising support 12) Visual excitement and impact - Big, bold and demands your attention

25

Ways in which Zee News use out door media in its repositioning

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
2.1 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
In this problem, we want to know about T. V. media at Zee news. Now a days media is one of the fastest growing sectors. Some people call media fourth pillar of our democracy and news is just like food is needed to live so. It is the nutrition for the brain to live in the society. I have a huge interest in media industry; I believe doing this project will definitely add advantage for my corporate life.

2.3 SAMPLING TECHNIQUE:


The sampling technique refers to the way in which samples have been selected. Here, Convenience sampling procedure has been used. The data here has been collected through questionnaire and direct questioning and then analysed.

28

QUESTIONNAIRE DESIGNING
A good questionnaire must be concise, focus, easy to understand language. Questionnaire should be designed as per the objective to get right feedback. A questionnaire has a mix of following 4 major scales, which help us in analyzing the attitude of the people. The scales are Nominal, Ordinal, Interval and ratio scale. 1. NOMINAL SCALE: This type of scale is mostly used in the opening so that respondents feel easy in answering. This scale helps in mutually exclusive classification of units i.e. there is no case of may be in this. 2. ORDINAL SCALE This type of scale is used for knowing a relativity of a unit as this includes ranking and it is a type of comparative scale as respondents mainly compare the parameters and then rank accordingly. 3. INTERVAL SCALE This type of scale is of non-comparative in nature here respondents mainly rate the parameters by their individuality and not comparing it with others. 4. CONSTANT SUM SCALE This scale is used to know the quantum of the preference i.e. a respondent will say that he/she buys branded products or non-branded products but in what percentage? is a big question, this scale helps in knowing the quantum.

29

2.4 SAMPLE SIZE:


In order to compare the status of ZEE in media industry, only 75 persons have been covered in the study to know about ZEE NEWS .Seventy five persons were randomly selected for the study. Different groups of cast, creed and religious groups were taken into consideration.

30

2.7 LIMITATIONS
~The time allotted was not sufficient, if allotted some extra time for our project we could have done better and could have analyzed certain other things also. ~People were biased and were giving wrong and manipulated information. ~Since we talk to people in public places, they were not taking us seriously and were a little conscious. ~Working on the primary data was also a limitation because we were not allotted much of the time to collect data from a larger number of people and then analyze it.

CONCLUSIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS

This research helped me to know the role of qualitative factors such as various view points which plays major role for cable and satellite user. With the help of research, I will be able to quantify all these qualitative factors such as various view points of the consumers, personal preferences, tastes and their interests while watching news channels and impact of out door media on them. This part of our report contains the final outcomes of our survey: In the genre of Hindi news channel channels cater not only news programs but also 11 other genere programs were shown. Last year Some programs were comedy, games and entertainment program And these program got good responses from audience e.g. comedy kamal ki,hansoge to fansoge ,cricket ka garam yudh. Hindi speaking audience likes entertainment everywhere and in news channel also. With this if we see last one year data than we will get to know that after news bulletin and review report interview and comedy was the most preferred genre. Before 2 years Zee news was at no.2 position and now it is no.4 position It is loosing its market share whether it has highest resources .it is attached with Indias one of the oldest and biggest media house.

59

It was Zees third repositioning every time it changes its punch line . major region to change punch line is to be refreshed itself to market and change itself according to scenario but problem is that People dont have much time to always notice these things. In my questionnaire filling session only 4 people was able to recall old punch line (HAQEEQAT JAISI KHABAR WAISI) completely. But as soon as I ask them AAJ TAK punch line with in second most of people respond sabse tej. These punch lines always help person to feel he be like that. I think all the time Zee news should not go for repositioning or change in its punch line. It should be loyal to its own stand if it cant then how it will get loyal viewer. Zee news should also start anchor building/mentoring program through my questionnaire I get to know people want improvement in anchor presentation style in Zee news. Zee news also improves its entertainment program quality. It is one of the week areas of Zee news.
