FACTORS AFFECTING PACKAGING
To ensure the value addition of the consumer is maximum Target
customers’ willingness to spend
Likelihood of the completion of the program Customer perception of the
brand
Cost benefits in packaging cost
Reaching breakeven point
WHY THE 12 WEEK PROGRAM
The target market is
women who are
relatively price
inelastic. So, they
don’t mind paying
whatever price is set
Usually when the
consumer pays so high
she is willing to try the
drug for12 weeks and
thereby the impact
that she will notice will
be higher, which will
make them come and
buy again
The drop out rate
becomes lesser since
the customer will not
forget to repurchase
or go get a
prescription
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION IS OUR
PRIORITY

A niche market can also give
rise to a high demand
PRICING STRATEGY
Option 2 is a good pricing strategy
ADVANTAGES OF OPTION 2
OF PRICING
 Price elasticity of demand- Target consumers are
insensitive to price and their demand is relatively
inelastic
 Level of monopoly- Being the only company in the
market that is offering drugs for the overweight
category, we have monopoly in the market
ADVANTAGES OF OPTION 2
OF PRICING
 Freedom to set the price - To maintain the uniqueness of
the product , we can set the price relatively high without it
affecting our demand
 Exploiting consumer surplus- Overweight consumers are
willing to pay $450 out of pocket on health care. With that
consumer surplus available, it should be used
 Considering goodwill
DISADVANTAGES OF OPTION 2
OF PRICING
• Prone to competition- Monopoly is prone to
competition
• Product value to customer is not equal to product
price- The consumer’s perception of the product might
not match the actual product
• Higher price might lead to lower demand- If
competition enters the market , the pricing may lead to
lower demand
• Assuming customer preference does not change
over 5 years
ADVANTAGES OF OTHER
PRICING OPTIONS
Advantages:

At $75:
 Target market becomes
bigger Low price ,high
demand
At $150:
Brand image in the market is that the product is
“premium” and high quality
DISADVANTAGES OF
OTHER PRICING OPTIONS

 The image of the product becomes that of it being a
low quality product
At $150
 Exploitation of the consumer surplus
 Target market being narrowed down too much
