  8. Marketing Channel Structure • Three basic dimensions1. Length of the channel 2. Intensity at various levels 3. The types of intermediaries involved

  9. Marketing Channel Structure • Length of channel- See Fig 10.1 book Can range from 2 or 3 levels – Up to 10 levels - some channels in Japan Manufacturer – Agent – Wholesaler – Retailer – ConsumerFacilitating agencies don’t take title to the goods so aren’t considered part of the channel structure. (Transport, warehouse, insurance companies etc)

Distribution Tasks • Distribution exists because there are discrepancies between production and consumption: - 4 basic groups- Discrepancies in quantity – production too big - Discrepancies in assortment – 000s of products- Discrepancies in time – prod not needed immed.- Discrepancies in place – Made in China!

  13. Performing Distribution Tasks • Specialization or Division of LabourLet some channel members develop expertise and specialize in particular areas • Transaction Efficiency At all costs, reduce the number of transactions required between manufacturer and consumer See Fig 10.3 & 10.4 of book

  14. Management’s Desire for Control Depending on the type of product or service that you are trying to distribute, you may require intense control of the channel, even if this means less economies of scale. Gucci vs. Fruit of the Loom

  20. 20 of 25 Motivating Channel Members Refers to actions taken by manufacturers to get channel members to implement their channel strategy: 1: You have to learn about the needs and problems of channel members – McDonalds Campaign 55 situation** 2: Offer support to channel members to help meet their needs and solve their problems – VMS (vert mgmt sys) 3: Provide ongoing leadership There were strings attached to Campaign 55, but McDOnalds competitors had no strings

  21. Coordinating channel strategy with the marketing mix 1: Product strategy may depend on channel strategy; eg. For frozen goods, perishables etc 2: Pricing strategy and channel strategy; the advertised price must be the available price, even after channel members have added their markup 3: Promotion strategy and channel strategy; if manufacturer invests time and money in promotion, retailer should engage in similar effort
