Advertising spend vs low prices Since the organization is in its development stage, it is regular that it will have goal-oriented prepares. We suggest that in the light of such plans, it ought to consistently think in the long haul and don't unexpectedly build the cost of its items since the majority of clients are still in appropriation stage and dispersion needs time. Expanding the cost to endure the expense of advancements and different exercises may demonstrate lethal to the organization and the clients may switch back to the ordinarily accessible FMCG products. Hindi packaging vs South India sales

We recommend that it is high time that Patanjali considered using vernacular language of respective states of South India in both their promotion and packages there. This will result in a greater connect between the brand and the customer, which is expected to result in the increase of sales of Patanjali products. Unfocussed product launch It is already recommended previously that Patanjali should cut down the product lines which are not aligned with its core offering. Apart from that, Patanjali should consider going for a trial version with samples in a small locality. If the product clicks, then only they should go for mass production scale for that product. Over-reliance on Ramdev It is true that without Ramdev, the success story of Patanjali might be different. But still with concern with the above issue, Patanjali should start linking the product quality and features and other related stuff in their promotion than depending on Ramdev alone. Conclusion Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali has made disruptive progress in the FMCG sector. Within a span of less than 10 years, it has displaced ayurvedic market leaders like Emami and Himalaya. Patanjali has become synonymous with ayurvedic products. While the total demand is not being satisfied as of now, efforts are on to increase sourcing so as to maintain steady supply of raw materials. The fill rate is 45-50% and can only increase from now on. They have increased their margins for franchise stores as well as retail chains to around 10% and thus are getting better placement on the shelves. They are focused on serving the masses and thus cut corners in packaging and advertising. This is changing as they are spending on advertising recently. The radio campaign is the first proof of that. Ramdev Baba’s charisma has pushed Patanjali to grow over 10 times in a span of less than 10 years. The FMCG giants are also taking steps to check the advancements of Patanjali. However now that it has gained traction in the market and there is overwhelming demand for its products, it will be difficult for them to win back their lost market share. Reference

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
