All water is not the same, our alkaline water helps give you a short cut to a healthier you because it helps you maintain the pH levels in your body fluids which serves to relieve symptoms of indigestion and constipation as well as to hydrate your body allowing optimal body function so that you can avoid unnecessary risk of illness and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Not only do you achieve this but we ensure that during the filling process we minimise cross contamination between customers bottles because our filling station is sanitised after each customer, we sanitise every bottle that comes into the shop, we sanitise the inside of the bottle with a natural sanitising rinse, staff sanitise their hands between each customer and when we dry your bottle, we use tissue paper which staff discard after each customer.
We do this not because of COVID but because we have always done this because we understand your need for a healthier lifestyle.

I have drunk tap water all my life and I am still healthy –
true but water is not what it used to be and is getting worse – compare ice blocks made from tap water and ice blocks made from our water – the choice is yours.
Alkaline water is like snake oil and is a myth – true there is no empirical data to back up what alkaline water does for you, however speak to anybody that does drink alkaline water and hear it from the horses mouth (there is always a customer at hand to back up their reason for drinking alkaline).
Too expensive – quality does cost money and the benefit to you is etc etc (as listed above)

Write a detailed spec on your ideal customer (as much info as possible as per the Prospect Principle)

Geographic: lives in Vanderbijlpark (we market whole of Vanderbijlpark)
Demographic: all ages – everybody drinks water
Psychographic: aversion to tap water and fizzy drinks, wants to be healthy, likes Droppie
Behaviour: drink water daily, 1L or more, buy sufficient to last the family for 1 week. Tells Mom or Dad to buy Droppie water.
NOTE: we have a mascot called Droppie that visits schools and gives talks on the benefits of drinking water, children now ask for Droppie water, this is how we cover the primary school market. We sponsor high school athletics and the older children queue to take a selfie. We sponsor golf days with Droppie, the first 9 holes, golfers are wary but after a visit to the lunch room many want a selfie with Droppie. We drive around town with Droppie on a marked truck and visit Malls and hand out free bottles on the street and at traffic lights. And much, much more.

What is their true deep desire?

Health, want to avoid illness and improve their health to live longer and without pain.

Have you optimised your pricing according to the pricing tactics and strategies and what is your pricing for your services or products?

I sell 2 products but concentrate on refilling customer’s own bottle instead of selling new bottle.
Purified still water R1/L
Purified alkaline water R3/L
Competitors for purified water have different prices varying from R1 to R1.48/L
No local competitors for alkaline water which we price as an added value product.
We are the only water shop that refills alkaline water so instead of customer buying 5L alkaline water for R30.00 they bring in their own bottle and refill at R3/L saving R15 per 5L. Increasingly customers see value in the more expensive alkaline water because their perception is that alkaline water offers more benefits.
