In order to activate the extramural independent scientist R00 phase, individuals must have been offered and accepted a tenure-track, full-time assistant professor position or equivalent at an eligible institution with appropriate infrastructure to support the proposed research program and a history of external research funding. The application for the extramural independent scientist R00 phase of the award must be submitted no later than 2 months prior to the proposed activation date of the R00 award by the R00 phase grantee organization. However, to avoid potential problems in activation, applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIH program officials as soon as plans to assume an independent position develop, and not later than 6 months prior to the termination of the K99 phase of the award to discuss plans for transition to, and the application for, the R00 phase.
The objective is to establish a single thing to be known as in the mind of the consumer. A clear understanding of the market includes target demographics, strength of the competitors' products, how you give value, and your own strengths and weaknesses.
After you have a thorough understanding of the landscape of your market, you can decide which positioning strategy will be the most successful for your products.
Target Demographics A product cannot be all things to all people.
Products are designed to appeal to a specific demographic group. Several characteristics of a demographic are age, gender, education, language and income level. For example, Telemundo is a Spanish language television network that offers programming to Latino and Hispanic customers.
A strategy that does a good job of targeting a market segment delivers more value to the consumer, establishes a stronger position against competitors, has more compelling communications and has a higher probability of keeping its customers.
Low-Price Strategy Pricing is a major consideration for most consumers. If a company can convince consumers that they are receiving more value for their money, they will buy the product.
A lower price strategy may require compromises in product quality or to reduce the range of offerings. For example, a car manufacturer might offer a lower price in exchange for a smaller engine and fabric upholstery instead of leather.
Consumers that have limited budgets will buy these lower-priced offerings because they believe that the 99 cent items represent good value for the price. High-Price Strategy Consumers perceive products with higher prices as having superior quality and are worth the price. However, to create this perception in the mind of the consumer, the company must focus its advertising on how its features and benefits are superior to those of its competitors.
The Five Guys hamburger chain has created the impression that their hamburgers and fries are higher quality than McDonald's and Burger King. As a result, Five Guys is able to charge higher prices, and people will stand in line to pay.
Distribution Companies can create the perception of better value by restricting the distribution of their products. Golf equipment manufacturers have certain clubs and balls that are only available in pro shops and are sold at higher prices The golfer believes that the products must be of higher quality because they're not available in Target or Walmart.
Competitive Comparisons The objective of competitive comparisons is to reposition a competitor's products in the minds of consumers. This strategy is helpful when a market has two strong competitors.
One company focuses its advertising on showing how its products differ from its competition. Marketers must determine where and how to position their products in the marketplace. They need to know who is going to buy their products, and why. How significant is the price?
Do consumers perceive that the product has sufficient value to justify paying a higher price -- or do they simply want the lowest price possible? These are all questions that a marketer must answer to have a successful positioning strategy.It's almost as if Mother Nature complied with Alex Cora's request.
