One Town, One Product Strategy

Strengthening product differentiation of Filipino products was a landmark concept of then President Gloria Arroyo. It was called the OTOP (copied from Japan’s One Village, One Product)… one town, one product strategy to generate 6-10 million jobs.

The idea is visionary… just like a passionate anti-corruption signature. If the Filipinos will only hold dear to this strategy and implement it to its intended fruition, and strictly setting aside politics, the country may just achieve what it deserves.

Here are examples of OTOP from the towns of Negros Occidental…

Pricing Indicators

Pricing high or something to that end should form the changing pattern of marketing Filipino products for the international market today and onwards. High quality though must take strong precedence.

The Philippines can explore its advantage in artisanship for the production of handicrafts for the international market. Indigenous materials and fine craftsmanship are the Filipinos’ pricing strengths. This is where Filipinos can command higher prices.

Promotional Challenges

The Filipino businessman knows that making products known to the world basically implies acceptable pricing, effective distribution, and exceptional product differentiation. He also knows in his reviews that he has to develop other aspects of his business such as… innovation, design, customer service, and delivery. And…

He knows he has an edge in many special products like… web content writing, Filipino music, Philippines outsourcing and SEO Philippines.

Export Ramifications

Filipino products face a wall of strange, cumbersome exporting lane. Filipino exporters must quickly comprehend which products are real winners. But there’s no need for Philippine products to compete with the cheaper exports of other Asian countries. Instead, Pinoys should stick to quality products.

Wrap Up

Thanks for having read this far…

I have stated at the outset that Filipino products could win for an investor certain niches on the global business landscape. I stick to assert the same thus far. I maintain that Filipino creativity and innovation have helped the country produce products for the global acceptance.

Yes, these products could win a venture… could make an investor earn, make him/her happy and grateful. Would you be that investor?
