We all pay close attention to it
The form and location of HNB brand experience store?
The editor contacted the head of the market of Bao S. he said: the experience store is an important part of the offline layout strategy of Bao s. It promotes the concept of heating non combustion in the way of experience store, so that users have a clearer understanding of the industry, more confidence in heating non combustion products, and reach deep communication with users, while increasing fans’ stickiness. In addition to the offline layout with the company as the main body, Bao also engages in the national regional investment and joining.
Although the recognition rate of HNB products in domestic market is low, the market potential of HNB products is huge from the development process and conversion rate of overseas markets such as Japan, South Korea, Europe and America. Under the influence of the epidemic in 2020, private enterprises have entered the low temperature grass track. Iqos is the benchmark for product development, and the sales channel is focused on micro business. Therefore, consumers are also the groups who contacted iqos in the early stage. From the perspective of Chinese tobacco market and policy, HNB products in the mainstream sense must be included in monopoly, but only time. In order to achieve long-term development in HNB track in China market, private enterprises must first seek the direction of segmentation from the perspective of product positioning; secondly, as a new technology product, HNB needs time to cultivate consumption habits, and it is particularly important for consumers to directly contact experience, so offline channel development is essential.
He mentioned that in 2021, the company will adhere to two development strategies of hnb+: one is to B hnb+, namely HNB supporting technical services for major customers; the other is hnb+, which is the independent brand located in the direction of hnb+ health.
