Havaianas Summary

Havaianas is one of the most commented successful cases in business. It became famous for its market repositioning, advertisement with celebrities, and increase of portfolio. Havaianas, a Brazilian rubber flip flop, is now the most popular flip-flop in the world as a result of a hard-working change in the Marketing Mix, which exceeded the flip flop conventionality and became a fashion article.
The flip-flop Havaianas began to be manufactured in 1962 by Alpargatas. The target market for this flip-flop was the middle class. However, after a period, everyone was using it and the flip flop became too popular, according with Rui Porto, Director of Media and Communication of Alpargatas. The popularity of the product became a problem. In 1980, the widespread use of the flip flop lowered the profitability levels so much that it fitted in the category of commodity. Havaianas flip flop was manufactured only in a single model, the business was running risky and changes in communication would not be enough to modify this scenario. The Alpargatas’ strategy for Havaianas was causing a drastic change in the marketing mix. After the market repositioning strategy was established in 1994, the first step was to create other models of Havaianas. The idea was to create a new line of flip flop with different colors and shapes that would result in product segmentation. After that, the channels of distribution became focused on niche markets, where each point of sale received a different model, according to its target market. Lather then, the product display in retail outlets was modified to enhance the product and facilitate the choice instead of big baskets of mixed pairs.
The last change, but not less important, was the communication. The communication focus changed of how the product was, e.g. a flip flop made by a soft rubber,…...

...HAVAIANAS We can find them on the shelves of the most important department stores of the world, like the Galeries Lafayette in Paris, Saks in New York and Harrods in London. They are worn by socialites, famous artists, politicians and at the same time by peasants and poor people living in Brazilian favelas. Without a doubt, they are the most democratic sandals in the world. I am talking about HAVAIANAS, an authentic Brazilian product that once was considered sandals for the poor and now are at the feet of everyone, over 60 countries. Its inspiration is a traditional Japanese thong called Zori that is made with rice straw. This explains why Havainas sole imitates the texture of rice grains. The name Havaianas from Hawaii, because when the brand was created in 1962, famous people used to spend their vacations there. Havaianas at the beginning were not as colourful as we see today. They were all white with only the sides in different colours. They were very cheap at that time, so the company used to sell about 1000 pairs everyday all over Brazil. This success started to be copied, so many imitations started to appear on the market. Havaianas then applied for a patent for its model and launched an advertising campaign with the slogan: “ Havaianas, the originals “. During the 80’s, Havainas used to sell more than 80 million of pairs in Brazil. The sandals were so important to poor people that they were inserted by the government into the list of basic products to......

...Summary of Online Degrees Could Be a Good Fit for Some In the article Online Degrees Could Be a Good Fit for Some Teens Briana Boyington is portraying that there is no correct type of college. There are different options for a different variety of learners and their different circumstances; whether it be a job, financial instability, or a student just needs relief from classroom learning. These options include four year universities, community colleges, and online degree programs. There are positives and negatives for every option. A few negatives for online degree programs is students lose some of the social interactions with other students and faculty that occur when attending school on campus. Employers are sometimes weary of hiring students that only have an online degree, campuses that offer both online and in class learning are looked at more highly. It is made clear in this article that online learning is a robust choice for a student who is self-determined, not likely a successful path for a student who has struggled in the classroom. When graduating high school online degree programs aren’t typically broadcasted, or encouraged. Most teenagers are set on living the college life so to speak. Boyington suggests that even though online learning is not the typical pathway, it could be a great path to success for many students who can’t go away to college as initially planned. A good online school would be one that inspires students to interact and get as close to......

...SUMMARY TEAM A University of Phoenix CJA 484 Dwayne Carr May 4, 2015 SUMMARY What did you find that was really useful, or that challenged your thinking? During this weeks reading and research in class I found it profoundly difficult to completely comprehend the fiscal demands part of correctional institutions as my concentration is on human services not finance. However, keeping fiscal budget demand in mind when implementing policy can be important as the world does revolve around money. Without proper budgeting the correctional institution would not have any programs for inmate’s to get help or education. The most important thing to remember is the safety of the prison staff must come first when implementing policy change. Furthermore the development of technology use like RFID tag to track inmate sin prison can eliminate investigation time and save money in the long run. The only issue seems to be is the initial cost of the devices outweighs the money saving. Inmates however will most likely tell the truth knowing they are being tracked it is almost like having a good working camera sin every area of the prions without the constant monitoring or mess-ups of film. Was there anything that you've already taken and applied in your workplace? Working security requires the use of some of the latest technological advancements. While it is not necessarily in a corrections environment, the use of technology is still paramount to the effectiveness of our tasks....

...passo da empresa foi a internacionalização das Havaianas, que passou a ser distribuída em 5 continentes e em mais de 60 países.Mesmo já sendo exportadas deste 1995, as sandálias Havaianas só caíram no gosto do público estrangeiro entre os anos de 2002 e 2004, quando se tornaram mania tanto nacional quanto internacional, ocupando algumas das vitrines mais concorridas do planeta, sendo vendida a um preço médio de 27 dólares. A razão desse elevado preço e por sua produção estar no Brasil, por isso o diretor presidente, Márcio Utsch resiste em querer abrir novas fabricas em outros países. A meta da Havaianas passou a ser elevar mais ainda a sua participação no mercado externo. Como por exemplo em 2007 quando a Havaianas finca definitivamente sua bandeira nos EUA com a sua casa própria em Nova York e em 2008 quando a marca passa a atuar diretamente na Europa, escolhendo a cidade de Madri para abrigar seu próprio escritório e uma equipe de diversas nacionalidades e culturas. Portanto nota-se que as sandálias Havaianas souberam ocupar um espaço vazio na mercado mundial, pois não havia nenhuma marca global de sandálias, e em um ambiente externo elas passam o valor de um produto de luxo para o consumidor, por ser importado e por ser diferenciado. Assim, a medida de internacionalização já vem sendo concluída e com o resultado superior ao esperado pela empresa. Medida de Propaganda: Comerciais com Artistas Depois de 2004, as Havaianas decidiram reposicionar sua marca, mudando......
