Appendix 1-Questionnaire 10. Appendix 2-SPSS Output Company Background Nokia was established in Finland in 1865. Owing to its digital revolution starting from 1992 by launching its first GSM model as well as the new formulation of the key elements of its strategy by leaving the old businesses and increasingly focus on telecommunications in 1994, it helps Nokia create the basis for a successful conquer of the world telecommunication market. Till now, Nokia is already the world leader in mobile communications, driving the growth of the broader mobility industry. Fulfilling a fundamental human need for social connections and contact by connecting people is the mission of Nokia. It aims to bridge the gap between people and the information they need by its innovative and high-tech telecommunication products. In order to achieve this mission, strong and aggressive R&D investment helps Nokia provide a wide range of easy-to-use and innovative products like mobile phones, devices and solutions for imaging, games, media and businesses to the world customers. Currently, Nokia comprises four business groups namely mobile phones, multimedia, enterprise solutions and networks.

> Pricing Strategies Mobile Phone industry is an oligopoly market in a mature stage of 2G mobile phone with a status quo pricing. Reducing the price not only can't help to promote Nokia's phone, but would only lead to price war. Also, from the factor-loading table, we can see that the attribute of reasonable price is not the most important factor to affect customers' purchase decision. As a result, we suggest Nokia to keep its existing pricing strategy. Fig 11 Factor Loading Table > Promotion Strategies From the factor-loading table (Fig 12), we can see that our target customers perceive the factor of 'widely advertised' to be an important one. This is reasonable since there are always new models available and customers can only get the most updated product information through different advertising methods. From the perceptual map, it shows clearly that Nokia is already a market leading player in terms of Factor 2- Marketing Activities. In customers' mind, Nokia has already heavily promoted for its mobile phone. Though, we can get important insights for the promotion strategy. Fig 12 Factor Loading Table Fig13. Perceptual Map * Objectives of the promotion strategy There are three objectives of the communication strategy. The first two objectives are to inform and persuade customers when there are new models available. The communication programs should provide information on Nokia's products quality in terms of its functions as well as its design in order to improve customers' awareness and knowledge on new launched mobile phones. The final objective is to send messages to customers which enhance Nokia's brand image. The communication strategy should remind customers and maintain its top position in their evoked set. * Media Message The media message of communication strategy should focus on Nokia's phone quality that could provide customers with multi- functions, which are perceived to be most important in mind of target customers. Apart from this, Nokia should also highlight its stylish and professional design in the media message as a selling point. ...read more.
