Brand The phone the Nokia 7210 does not actually have a brand name. The company has it is called Nokia. Nokia Group the Finland-based manufacturer of mobile phones has been steadily working on its corporate brand name and the management of consumer perceptions over the last few years. Its efforts have paid off, because it is now the number one brand in many markets around the world.

When Nokia positions its brand in the crowded mobile phone marketplace, its message must clearly bring together the technology and human side of its offer in a powerful way. The specific message that is conveyed to consumers in every advertisement and market communication is ” Nokia connecting People” Nokia does have a logo, which looks like this: – All of the Nokia 7210 have this logo on their phones. However, instead of blue it is white and it can be found in the top centre of the phone as you can see from fig 1.

Currently, their slogan for the Nokia mobiles is “Connecting People”.

The actual product the Nokia 7210 also has an advertising slogan such as “The Right Attitude” and “body Beautiful” From sources Http: 2 when considering the Nokia 7210 the company have tried to give it a brand image. Product design is clearly critical to the success of the brand.A great deal of thought to how the user of its phones will experience the brand, and how it can make that experience reflect its brand character. The large display screen, for example, is the “face” of the phone. Nokia designers describe it as the “eye into the soul of the product”. The shape of phones is curvy and easy to hold. The faceplates and their different colours can be changed to fit the personality, lifestyle, and mood of the user. The soft key touch pads also add to the feeling of friendliness, expressing the brand personality.

The urban image that the phone is given is there so that it can appeal to the target market.

Here is a clip of an advertisement for the Nokia 7210 :- As you can see from the above advertisement Nokia have decided to advertise the Nokia7210 by its brand image as well as giving the phone its own slogan “The right Attitude” as you can see from fig 2 the girl on the picture as a sign on her head. However if you look at the shape of the keypad on the Nokia 7210 (fig 1) you will see that the shape is the same.

According to a variety of consumer surveys, the Nokia brand is associated with well-designed, high quality and technologically advanced products and customer services that are also user-friendly. We have invested considerable resources in establishing the Nokia name as the leading brand in mobile communications. We intend to sustain and enhance the Nokia brand through aggressive advertising, sponsorship and other marketing activities in all of our principal markets. We believe that our leading market position provides significant opportunities for Nokia to better understand and respond to the usage patterns of end-users, and thus enhance the Nokia brand. HTTP 1 Stage in Life Cycle Nokia mobile phones, in general, have reached the maturity stage in the system life cycle.

However, the Nokia 7210 is a new mobile phone as can be described as being in the late stages of the introductory stage and the early stages of the growth stage. This is because the Nokia 7210 has come into the market in October 2002 and therefore is quite and people including the target market know about the Nokia 7210 and more people are buying it. The sales of the Nokia 7210 expanded during the Christmas Period bringing it to the early stages of growth in the product life cycle.

Currently, Nokia is trying to extend its product life cycle. At the moment Nokia mobile phones have reached the maturity stage they are trying to make sure that the product does not go into decline. It can do this in several ways: – • It is promoting its product more frequently through TV, the Internet, magazines, leaflets, radio and posters.

  • Finding new markets. Nokia has introduced its mobile phones to other countries such as Asia and other parts of Europe.
  • Developing new distribution channels. The Internet is a major new distribution market that Nokia is currently using. Customers can now purchase their mobile phones on their website. There is also the possibility of purchasing new mobile phones early before they reach retail outlets. Also, Nokia distributes their phones to online mobile shops such as dial a phone, where they sell the phone at special rates.
  • Nokia keeps updating their phone ranges. For example, the 7210 will soon have and updated version of this phone called the 7250, which provides an integrated camera.
  • Introducing new services such as Internet and picture messaging. Also, new Nokia phones provide new facilities such as Radio and Games.
  • Provide the opportunity to upgrade their phones on their website this helps obtain brand loyalty as well as extending the PLC of Nokia phones.
  • Enhancements. While not everyone may be able to constantly change their mobile phones Nokia provide the ability to change covers, download games from their website and change ring tones.

This also is the same for Nokia 7210. While the phone was introduced into the market in October 2002. It is currently and the late introductory early growth stage of the PLC. Nokia wants to keep this phone at the growth stage, as long as possible this is why the Nokia 7210 comes with a range of enhancements and accessories.

The phone comes with a range of covers so that customers especially the target market do not get “Bored” with their phone they can buy covers to make the phone look different. They can download additional software to the phone from Nokia websites such as dictionaries and games, ring tones and screen logos. Nokia 7210 comes with 275kb of free space for exactly this purpose.

As well as this the phone comes with accessories such as a small-integrated digital camera, which you attach to the phone so that you can take pictures with it.

Diagram of Nokia PLC (all phones) As you can see from fig 3 the Nokia mobiles have reached the maturity stage of the PLC. Although this is the case for Nokia mobile phones, mobile phones, in general, are said to be in the growth stage of the system life cycle. Kotler (2000).

Diagram of Nokia 7210 PLC Fig 4: PLC of Nokia 7210 As you can see the Nokia 7210 has only just started to reach the early growth stage of the product life cycle.

Price Relevant Internal and External Influences Some of the external influences that influence external influences of pricing for the Nokia 7210 is :

Customers: When pricing the Nokia 7210 it is very important that the company look at the target market, in this case, it is teenagers and young adults. Therefore the price o the Nokia 7210 cannot be extremely expensive as the target market will no be able to afford it. The Nokia 7210 price ranges from £299.95 – £2 19.99. This can be considered as quite expensive, Nokia have tried to put the price as low as possible considering all the faculties it has with it. The Samsung T100, which also includes similar features as the Nokia 7210, has a price range from £329.

The phone was also put out in the market in late October this was intended so that it would be a popular Christmas present so that parents can buy the phone for them. The Nokia 7210 sales went up extremely during the Christmas period bringing the phone to the early stages of growth in the product life cycle Http: 4

Relationship Between Price and Demand: Since the target market is teenagers and young adults Nokia cannot increase the price of the phones as the target market will not be able to afford the phone when the price increases. When the demand is high instead it is the stayed at a fixed price (however some mobile shops are able to sell them at a better price), generally especially on Nokia 1s website the price of the mobile phone is fixed at a certain price when the phone is put out into the market. However, once demand becomes low for the product (e.g. because a new version of the phone is put out into the market) Nokia lower the prices of the phone in order to extend the product life cycle.

* Competitors: Nokia strategy is to avoid pricing wars for as much as possible this why competitors is not a factor that effects the Nokia decided on a price for the Nokia 7210.

Internal Influences Nokia Organisational Objectives: The objectives of Nokia is to provide their customers with lower-priced handsets disposable handsets. The objective of this is to gain share and keep profitability high.

. This is so that Nokia gain more demand for their products. Their strategy is also with new technology that enable products to become smaller and lighter, thereby reducing the number of resources used in the manufacturing process. Http: 1.

Cost of producing a product is a very important factor that influences the price of a product. The Nokia 7210 price is considered to be quite expensive compared to an earlier version of mobile phones. However, the Nokia 7210 comes with a range of new technologies which such as the Internet, radio and java games. This means that more resources are need when designing the phone making the price of the phone higher.

Pricing Strategy Nokia 7210 mobile phone pricing strategy can be considered as rapid penetration. As prices are quite low and promotional expenditure is high.

The reason for this is to gain share and keep profitability high and to gain economies of scale. (Increase output and bring down costs).

Nokia also makes money by proving expensive accessories and software for the phone. For example with the Nokia 7210 customers have the opportunity to buy a camera to go with the phone so that they can buy for £80. The phone comes with 275kb of space that customers can buy download games and other software for. This is available to buy on Nokia`s website.

Other accessories such as mobile tones, covers and logos are available to purchase on their website for the 7210. Phone covers for the Nokia 7210 range from £26.

Executives from both Nokia and Ericsson recently stated that neither organization plans to lower prices on their handsets to gain market share at the expense of profits. Both companies have acknowledged that their competitors have cut prices to gain market share and reduce inventory glut. Neither executive, however, believes that the competition can continue with these price cuts for much longer.

Despite holding firm on its no price cutting pledge, Nokia still believes that it can maintain current market share and prices. Interestingly, Nokia recently reported profits at the high end of Wall Street expectations while one of its price-cutting competitors, Motorola, reported dismal results.

Motorola’s CEO, Chris Galvin, admitted that when looking at Motorola’s troubled stock price and newfound decline into quarterly losses, “the issue has largely been us. The changes that have to take place have to take place within Motorola.” No blaming the economy.

Rather than cut prices, Nokia has begun shifting its attention to a different lower-end market segment that focuses on low cost, simple disposable phones in hopes of greater returns on investments.

Nokia says that when providing a pricing strategy on the Nokia 7210 they have to look at the target market. In this case it is teenagers and young adults. This why Nokia try to lower the price of this phone as much as possible as young people and students will not be able to afford a phone of a high price. The Nokia 7210 price ranges from £299.95 – £2 19.99. This can be considered as quite expensive, Nokia has tried to put the price as low as possible considering all the faculties it has with it. The Samsung T100, which also includes similar features as the Nokia 7210, has a price range from £329.

Nokia also provides the ability to exchange old phones for a newer one. For example, you can exchange an older Nokia phone for a Nokia 7210 for £50.

Gradually when the Nokia 7210 has been in a market for a few months the price of the Nokia 7210 will slowly start to fall.

Nokia main strategy is to keep the price of handsets as low as possible and avoid pricing wars.

Place Distribution Channel Direct Selling of the Nokia 7210 is available on the Internet. The Nokia 7210 is available to buy on Nokia website as well as a range of Internet mobile shops. Companies such as phones 4 U and Dial a Phone. Companies such as Dial a phones and Phones 4 U are usually able to offer you the phone at a better price compared with retail outlets. Internet shopping is becoming more popular and more and more people especially the younger generation are purchasing products online. Nokia says that allowing customers to phones online also allows them to see other products and services that they offer for example downloading software and games. Most of Nokia online customers are the younger generation as conducted from a recent survey from the Nokia forum. Http: 1.

The Nokia 7210 is also available through the retail outlets such as Carphone Warehouse and The Link etc. They purchase the products from Nokia then sell it to the customers. Recently Nokia has found a new distribution channel is a supermarket such as Tesco. The larger stores of Tesco now sell Nokia phones. However, these phones are usually the older versions of Nokia phones such as 3210 and 3310.

Before deciding which distribution channel Nokia will sell their phones to they look at a few factors such as: •Customers: Nokia look at their customers buying habits and most of Nokia customers are businessmen and young people. For this reason, Nokia has recently found a new distribution channel which is its own website as well as other mobile online shops. Many students buy products online as they enjoy doing so and like to “Surf” Internet pages.

Many businessmen are usually too busy to go shopping for a mobile phone and find quicker and easier just to buy a product using the internet especially now as most internet shops provide next day delivery guarantee. The Nokia 7210 was advertised very early on Nokia website they also allowed customers to order the phone early so as soon as the phone went out in the market they would be the first one to receive it. Currently, Nokia 7250 has already been advertised on Nokia`s website.

•Product characteristics. Another factor that influences which channel of distribution Nokia choose is on the phone characteristics. Nokia 7210 has lots of features that customers may want to query about this why when customers buy the phone online they can also download extra information on how to use the phone efficiently and get technical advice from Nokia own experienced staff.

•Distributor Characteristics. Many customers are buying a technical product such as mobile telephone, they want to know as much as possible about the phone and how it will benefit them, this is why Nokia mainly distribute their phones to mobile shops. As staff are trained so that they can give customers advice and information about mobile phones.

Nokia has two forms of distribution channel structure this is the direct supply via the Internet as Nokia sell directly to their customers through the Internet. Also, Nokia has a short channel as the phones go from producer to retailer.

Strategy Nokia distribution channel for the Nokia 7210 is Selective.

Total number of outlets that sell the Nokia 7210 in Swansea: 14 (This includes all mobile phone shops including Argos and Index) Note Tesco do not sell the 7210 as they tend to just sell more older versions of the Nokia phones.

The Number of Outlets per Region: A small number Distribution focus : Retailer Knowledge most of the places that sell the Nokia phones are mobile phone shops so staff are trained to know a bit of information about the product before they sell it.

A number of Potential purchasers: Medium mainly teenagers and young adults Level of planned purchasing: Medium/High some people may decide to buy the phone in advance while other will just buy it when they need it or as soon as it comes into the market especially since the opportunity of upgrading handsets is high.

Typical Price : High/ medium while some people may find this a high price other will find it a medium price compared to other phones of similar type in the market.

Channel Dynamics: While Nokia sell their phone for £299.99 on the Internet companies such as Dial a Phone the internet mobile shop have recently offered this phone free after only being in the market since October 2002. However, this is only if you buy it with a monthly contract with £28 line rental. Nokia has very little influence on how it is sold on distribution channels such as these.

Promotion Promotional Tools and Their Influences Here are some of Nokia promotions that they used in 2002: Sales Promotion Nokia is giving away a free photo fun pack, which is available to all customers who purchase a 7210, 7650 or 9200. So that customers can send photo messages. The Nokia 7210 does not come with an inbuilt camera, however, you can purchase this phone for an extra £80.
