G A short question Product Description
Flaus, the world’s first eco-friendly electric flosser, makes flossing as fast and easy as brushing your teeth. Brushing only cleans about 60% of the surface of the teeth without touching cracks and gaps between the teeth. But Flaus uses sonic vibrations to move quickly and gently between tight teeth, removing stubborn plaques and debris from places beyond the reach of the toothbrush. Flaus vibrates up to 12,000 sound waves per minute, allowing you to easily slide between tight teeth and massage your gums – providing strong, gentle cleaning. Using traditional floss inevitably causes our fingers to touch the mouth, which carries a lot of bacteria. But the electric flosser has a handle like our electric toothbrush, effectively preventing our fingers and bacteria from entering our mouths. This electric flosser also has an extra long battery life, we only need to charge once a month to use it, even when using it in the bath can also play a waterproof role. It’s worth noting that the Flaüs nozzle is for everyday use, easy to replace and less wasteful. Daily use only needs to hang on your own magnet, with built-in LED tracking technology that provides visual cues to help you maintain healthy habits and maintain a sense of responsibility.

Marketing Mix-Product Strategy
Flaus’s product strategy should first consider consumers’ use experience. As more and more people are paying attention to oral care, we know that some consumers find using regular dental floss painful, disgusting, time-consuming and difficult. In view of this, Flaus made a very humanized design in product design and functional features. High intensity acoustic vibration and ergonomic handle make it easy for consumers to clean their teeth, greatly improving consumer satisfaction. Secondly, in terms of after-sales service, FLAUS can provide consumers with a two-year warranty for free on the premise of normal use of the products. In addition, the materials of the products are all environmentally friendly and non-toxic. The environmental protection concept throughout the product design can make consumers more trust and loyalty to the Flaus brand. We plan to achieve sustainability through environmentally friendly materials and humanized design concepts. Flaus is a user-friendly oral care product in the form of a home. Ensure quality control of each product from manufacturing to distribution channels. Providing customers with safe, effective and convenient products is the main core customer value of our products.
Marketing Mix-Distribution Strategy
Based on the fact that Flaus is not sufficiently known, we first decide to promote the product to the sales network through the sales staff.
The second step is to let our sales personnel recommend products to wholesalers, wholesalers to recommend to retailers, and finally to retailers to sell our products. It gives the retailer a better price. Specifically, our products will be located in LA, USA. We will first expand our popularity and build our brand in Los Angeles, the United States. We will sell our products like Shoppers through well-known supermarkets and drugstores. And then the retailers spread out in different parts of the United States and eventually around the world.
And for the convenience of customers in other regions and to maximize the smiling face of our products, we also need to utilize our own direct selling site. It is convenient to directly manage and process the orders of consumers around the world. To save costs, we will find the lowest price and fast delivery of express shipping, so that customers feel our sincerity.
Marketing Mix-pricing strategy
Flaus will take advantage of an overall “value-based pricing” pricing strategy. Our products set prices based on the level of trust our customers place in the value of the products we sell, and we start with the value we provide them. Because the floss electric floss brush is the world’s first, unlike the electric toothbrush and waterline puncher on the market. We offer unique and high-value features. Effective customer-oriented pricing involves understanding how much consumers value the benefits they receive from their products and setting a price that is comparable to that value. Each flaus suite provides greater value to its connected components as a whole. So, based on our customers’ needs and the value we offer, we decided that the recommended retail prices for Flaus’ All-Star (1 Pack), Power Duo (2 Pack) and Dream Team (4 Pack) would be 99usd, 179usd, 329usd. In addition, the three packages we sell have the same functionality, so it’s more cost-effective to buy more. By setting models of different prices and values, we can understand the needs of a wider range of consumers and what we think of our products. So we adjusted the price between each package to maximize sales.
Flaus can easily clean the plaque and debris between the teeth. This is because the product uses sonic vibration technology, which allows the product to clean places that the toothbrush can’t reach. In addition, the product provides a two-year after-sales warranty service. This service aims to reduce the defects in materials and artistry and customer satisfaction with the product. Flaus uses many recyclables and environmentally friendly materials to manufacture dental floss, giving the company’s dental floss a particular advantage in the sales of similar products in the market. Because more and more people are willing to buy products made of environmentally friendly materials.
Moreover, Flaus brand dental floss also has an extended battery storage capacity, which can often be used for about a month after a single charge, which significantly enhances the customer’s satisfaction with the use of the product. Meanwhile, the company also employs a lot of staff related to the dental industry, reflecting that the products produced a certain degree of professionalism in the medical field.

The cost of the company’s electric dental floss is much higher than other similar products, which often results in the company’s products having a selling price disadvantage in the market. In addition, the electric dental floss produced by the company usually does not have too much purchasing power compared with the disposable dental floss on the market because people tend to buy more convenient and inexpensive substitutions. Customers often do not purchase the product again in a short period after buying the product. The long purchase interval also makes the product’s sales in the market fail to meet high expectations.
