promotion schemes on behalf of the company. & However, to keep the channel members motivated to work, the company has to incur certain costs but the benefits of it are felt in the long run.

The Distributors:

  • One of the main factors, which keep the distributors motivated, is the margin. Usually, the margins offered by Parle are 8%. Nowadays it has been raised to 8.5%.
  • Volume-wise this comes out to be a big figure since Parle's product has a good demand in the market. However, compared to the other companies the margins are still lower since the new players in the market offer a much higher margin. But the very fact that Parle's products have good demand in the market motivates the distributors to stock it
  • Parle Products being a cooperative cannot afford to give heavy monetary incentives. Parle‟ s products are considered to be value for money since the company does not believe in charging high margins. In fact, all monetary incentives are just the short run means to promote the company‟s product.
  • In order to keep the Channel members motivated in the long run, Parle has built on the concept of “Trade Marketing” which makes the dealers and the distributors believe that the company‟s products are worthy of being pushed in the market.
  • The company is organizing various Total Quality Management initiatives and workshops. Here various counseling measures are undertaken by the company to improve the overall working of the distribution network.
  • Vision and mission statement: the company cascades down the vision to the various channel members; this is done through various events organized by the company at different locations where the values of the company are made clear and enforced to the channel members.
  • Also, the fact that Parle being a cooperative society cannot afford to spend exorbitantly on such events therefore it has a very traditional way of organizing this get-together which leaves an impact on the members.
