strategic initiatives
STRATEGIC INITIATIVES
  • The Times Group has re-defined the pricing game in the newspaper industry . PRICING has been one of the most significant and successful strategies adopted by the Times Group .
  • Consumer – Invitation Pricing. This encourages :
  • More readers to become buyers
  • Trial for the brand, hence opportunity for conversions
  • Purchase of multiple brands

This leads to higher circulation and reader base

  • Advertiser – Perceptual Pricing . The Times Group has been the pioneer of perceptual pricing in the newspaper industry. Every edition of a newspaper & magazine from the Group is treated like a brand. The objectives for each are well defined and pricing developed accordingly. The Times Of India – Mumbai commands the highest price amongst all publications in India.
  • ‘Mastermind’ is the most important marketing tool.
