This marketing duo developed optimum brand positioning results for Allsmile Brands, a leading toothpaste manufacturer in the United States. Company History Local and Regional companies showed the highest manufacturer sales
Local Company was our strongest competitor based on overall Manufacturer sales.
Driscol had increasing sales over the past four periods but Driscol had high cost of goods sold, tariffs, freight, and allowance expense which results in the company loss of contribution. Competitor Analysis SWOT Analysis (BBC Monitoring, 2012) Name: The People’s Republic of China (PRC)
Population : 1.1336 billion
Capital city: Beijing
Largest city: Shanghai
Total Area: 9.6 million square miles
Major language: Mandarin
Political Party: Communist Country Analysis (Uncles, Wang & Kwok, 2010, p. 925) Growing middle income
Most population live in urban areas
Chinese believes in natural products
Population in older generation believe in strong collectivist
New generation are more open, more future-oriented. Customer Analysis (Decker, 2012, p. 37) The world’s fourth Largest Country
The global oral care market had stable growth from 2005 to 2010
It set to grow by $4.1 billion over 2010-2015
Toothpaste and toothbrushes will account for over $3 billion of this (73.4%) growth
Chinese are more aware of their personal hygiene due to the companies entered the Chinese market Industry Analysis (BBC Monitoring, 2013) Economic has transformed with more capitalist system (replaced socialism).
Today, China is the world’s top exporters, largest oil consumers after the US, and the largest producer and consumer of coal.
China is home to many of the world’s most polluted cities.
Other problems: level of society, corruption, and increasing of HIV rate. Country Analysis Cont. We think our two places to do our manufacturing are Beijing and Shanghai. I also think we would do a very good busy over there since they do not seem to have much toothpaste for whole families or children. We also need to do different sizes and different flavors that have different prices for the different kinds of toothpaste. We would put our toothpaste in Hyper Markets and Drug Stores. We think this would help a market grow. Positioning Map and Strategy Some of our competitors over in China would be as follows;
(1) Angola Toothpaste-it is manufactured in Jiangsu, China and is mainly for adults (Alibaba Group, 2013).
(2) Cool White toothpaste-it is manufactured in Jiangsu, China and is mainly for adults (Alibaba Group, 2013).
(3) Air Sun toothpaste-it is manufactured in Zheijiang, China and is mainly for adults (Alibaba Group, 2013).
(4) Kanwan toothpaste-it did not say where it was manufactured, but it comes in three flavors, orange, olive and pomegranate (DiggNew, 2011). Target Market Focus The market our company would target would be adults, children and families. The three brands we would use are
(A) Allsmile Whitening,
(B) Allsmile Basic Family
(C) Allsmile kids. Target Market Focus Pricing
Allsmile Whitening, 75g tube paste – 8.46Y
Allsmile Basic, 150g tube paste – 9.24Y
Allsmile Kids, 75g tube paste – 8.05Y
Prices determined by finding average competitor MSRP within Chinese markets then adding the appropriate percentages due to size, delivery system, etc.
Our products are priced in the middle of the road Marketing Program Strategy and Tactics Place
Three distribution channels used
Increases visibility of our products
Each SKU will have it’s own ad campaign designed specifically for each target market.
Previous ads will be adapted when possible to reduce cost Marketing Program Strategy and Tactics Packaging
Each SKU packaged differently depending on target market
Packaging changes based on region to reflect local dialects
Increase costs associated with multiple types of packaging will be offset by utilizing local Chinese labor. Marketing Program Strategy and Tactics Product Objectives

We want to make toothpaste that fights cavities, whitens teeth and sensitive to teeth. Our company needs to make different sizes of tubes of toothpaste, so that the customer has a source on what size tube they want to buy. Implementation Plan Our company needs to advertise our product as much as possible, so to get it out to the public. Our company needs to stay ahead of the competition. Our company needs to know what our competitors are doing all the time. Our company needs to make the best toothpaste for all ages of customers. Our company needs to have competitive prices and still be less than the competition is charging. Of course, our company wants to make money, so we really need to watch how much we charge for our toothpaste. Implementation Plan To start our implementation plan we need to find the perfect area in China for our company. Our company needs to have the manufacture building close to all kinds of transportation, (truck companies, trains and boats). Our company needs to hire loyal and efficient employees to produce the toothpaste product. As a company in another country, our managers and leaders need to respect the employees in their culture and believes.
