     AAJ TV
   BUSINESS PLUS
   CHANNEL FIVE
   CITY42

They think GEO as the main competitor and their strategies are
according to GEO. Although GEO is a big fish in front of Express
news and it is here since 2002 but still Express news is becoming a
challenge for the GEO and competing it very successfully. Some
channels have copied many things from Express.


EXPRESS REVENUE MODEL


The revenue model is advertisement based. They are earning
revenue through advertisements and sponsors by different
companies to different programs.


EXPRESS VALUE PROPOSITION


They are providing authenticated news with quick broadcasting
service. They are trying to make people aware of the condition of
their country. They want people to feel secure they don’t threat
people through news as some other channels doing. They show
informative programs like LIFE STYLE in which they call
different personalities and celebrities from different sectors and
professions. They show Quotes by different famous personalities
and also the factoids.


EXPRESS BRAND CREDIBILITY


EXPRESS has uplifted the image of news through digital
technology and innovative programs. The programs are compared
by famous columnists whom styles of comparing are very
attractive. They gather news very quickly as compare to othe r
channels.
EXPRESS BRAND QUALITY AND TRUST


The quality is the cornerstone of their quick success. Their
broadcasting of visual news is very quick while other channels just
show headlines at that mean time. This is because they are using
latest technology, having 28 DSNG (Direct Satellite News
Gathering) vans. As it is new born channel and yet building trust
through authenticated news from all over the Pakistan as well from
the world. It has created a strong image among the people.


EXPRESS BRAND EXTENSIONS


It is itself a brand extension of Daily Express newspaper. And now
they are launching brand extension of Express news as Express
news English channel which is running on test transmission and
they are aiming to compete one and only English news chan nel
Dawn news.
Express group (Lakson Group of Company) is largely considered
as a direct competitor to Jang Group, who has been suffering to
launch its Geo English Channel for quite some time.



EXPRESS BRAND MARKETING


PRODUCT/SERVICE: It is a news channel creating awareness
about current and international affairs, political issues and
problems of peoples in different cities and countries as well.

PRICE: It is using skimming price strategy for advertisements of
different companies.

PLACE/DISTRIBUTION: Its distribution is through satellite all
over the world. It covers news from all over the world and
broadcast it through their channel.

 Their website is www.express.tv which is under construction.
Sooner every one in the world who has internet access will see the
Express news online.

PROMOTION: As it is itself an advertisement medium so the y
don’t need to advertise is through any other T.V channel. In start
they promoted the channel through their own news paper and sti ll
doing so. They advertise other businesses on their channel and the
website they are going to launch has also the facility to advertise
with them.

They conduct different public relation programs like seminars etc.
For example they organized a seminar “MERI PEHCHAAN
PAKISTAN” on 14th August.

PEOPLE: The people related to its management are very talented
and trained by foreign channel members of CNN, BBC, and FOX
etc. All people are working efficiently for its success. This is kept
in mind that the emplo yees and mangers be intensively trained on
leadership, team management, assertive leadership skills and
coaching and mentoring skills.


PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT: The physical environment is not
so impressive. They are utilizing the same buildings which are
utilized by DAILY EXPRESS newspaper. The atmosphere is
condensed and employs don’t feel comfortable while working
there.


PACKAGING: Packaging is not in sense of intangible appearance
like rappers, carton etc. It is about tangible packaging. Programs
are slickly packed by the compares through beautiful words and
quotations and information about historical things. This makes the
program attractive and interesting for the viewers. This is a new
technique used by Express so far.


EXPRESS TARGET MARKET


Target market strategy is clearly to capture market share and niche
through its people, because in today's world everything can be
copied, except the spirit of people and their attitudes which the y
manifest towards their customers . The target market is massive.
They are capturing the people of every class, every religion, every
region in Pakistan, of any colour and sex. The main focus is of age
group from 14 to so on. They are trying to convey massage to each
and every person from every corner of Pakistan.
EXPRESS COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Express has main advantage of their aggressive presence which
threatened the existing news channels working for years. The main
points of their advantage are;

   Digital and expensive technology
   New ways of delivering news
   Using existing news network i.e. Daily Express
   Highly trained employees by foreign and successive news
    channel’ member
   Biggest reporting network in Pakistan
   Reinforcement of business plan
   Innovative ideas about the programs



EXPRESS BRAND LOYALITY

This is a hot debate in the Express corporate sector that how to
build the brand’s loyalty and how to make the brand strong? As
Express is a new brand in the market and building its brand loyalty
by the time by providing a big range of valuable programs to its
viewers. So it is impossible yet to say that people are loyal to the
brand because of their changing nature. If other channels like GEO
and ARY one world come up with a valuable change then already
build brand loyalty can decrease.

act of designing the company’s offer and image so that it occupies
the distinct and valued place in target customer’s mind”.

QUALITATIVE MEASURES


Here we have some examples relating to the quality of service of
Express News.

Example 1: The first incidence when the BENAZEER came in to
Pakistan from Dubai. The PPPP organized a political procession.
A bomb was blasted in that procession. The BENAZEER didn’t get
any scratch but unfortunately his body guard was angered and
became handicap. After the incidence every body neglected him as
he has no presence. He was suffering hand to mouth and don’t
even have money for his treatment.

Express team was the first who went to him and telecasted his
crucial state in front of everyone. After this sensational telecast
PPPP came to realize of their neglected behaviour. They
announced a scholarship of 25.000 rupees monthly.

Example 2: The 2 n d incident is about a train accident which took
place near Gujjar khan. The train leaved its track and ran down by
the country side. The Express were the first to capture that
accident in the eye of camer a and telecasted that accident live, at
the same time Geo was telecasting only headlines.

These two examples show the vital role of Express as well their
fast service and responsibility for the welfare and awareness of
people. There are many more stories like this. Express is really
working very impressively and created a respectable place in the
mind of people.

RECOMMENDATIONS


 1) They should focus on their promotion to increase their brand
    equity by means of billboards and through TV screen fitted
    at traffic signals

 2) There are no separate buildings for TV channel and
    newspaper. They should shift their setup to some other
    building before the work increases and they become unable
    to solve the pro blems at that mean time.


 3) To start such kind of activities that it removes the bad image
    of media which is; the media is spreading terror among
    people, when this will clarif y in people’s mind this will
    increase the brand image.

 4) They should start programs on hot issues like education,
    economy and unemployment to create awareness among
    people that how we can solve these problems.


 5) Launch their web as soon as possible because web in this
    technological era is one of the best tools for promotion and
    distribution as well.

 6) In web they should introduce feature like recording of some
    famous programs is uploaded so every one can watch those
    videos any time.


 7) By terminating skimming price strategy and adopting
    penetration pricing for advertisements to attract more
    sponsorships. In start if they will think to earn more profit
    than their efforts and market value then it will destroy their
    image and they will be i n loss.
