2. Sales Promotion

  • Definition:

4 personal selling1
4. Personal Selling

  • Definition:

    • Selling that involves a face-to-face interaction with the customer

  • But why is this considered promotion?

    • Rationale:

      • It provides a service to the customer

        • Ease in information gathering

      • Such service enhances one’s value proposition

      • Value propositions are the reasons customers shop a store

        • What is the goal of a promotion – traffic

Integrated effort
Integrated Effort

  • Promotion decisions relate to and must be integrated with other management decisions, such as:

    • Location

    • Merchandise

    • Credit

    • Cash flow

    • Building and fixtures

    • Price

    • Customer service

Promotion in the supply chain
Promotion in the Supply Chain

  • Three major differences in the way retailers and manufacturers use promotion:

    • Consider which, the retailer or manufacturer, highlights each in their promotions:

      • Product image versus availability

      • Specific product benefits versus price

      • Focused image versus cluttered ads

Promotional objectives
Promotional Objectives

  • Long-term objectives

    • Institutional advertising

      • Promoting and selling the store itself rather than the merchandise in the store.

  • Short-term objectives

    • Promotional advertising

      • Promoting the product availability and price to increase short-term performance

    • Two major goals:

      • Increased patronage from existing customers

      • Attraction of new customers

Steps in planning for a retail advertising campaign
Steps in Planning for aRetail Advertising Campaign

  • Select advertising objectives

  • Budget for the campaign

  • Design the message

  • Select media to use

  • Schedule ads

  • Evaluate results

Selecting advertising objectives
Selecting Advertising Objectives

  • Advertising objectives are informed by one’s promotional objectives

    • Advertising objectives are very idiosyncratic, but should never include “to increase sales”. Why?

    • Generally though, all chosen objectives must be:

      • Aimed at a specific market segment

      • Measurable

      • Stated in terms of a specific time frame

      • Would this example be okay or poor? Why?

        • “increase the level of awareness by 30% over the next 6 months”

Budgeting for a retailer only campaign
Budgeting for a“Retailer-Only” Campaign

  • Three general approaches:

    • Affordable Method

      • Allocates all the money that the retailer can afford for advertising in any given period.

    • Percentage-of-Sales Method

      • Targets a specific percentage of forecasted sales to be used for advertising


    • Task and Objective Method*

Designing the message
Designing the Message

  • Creative ads should seek to accomplish 3 goals:

    • Attract attention and retain attention.

    • Achieve the objective of the advertising strategy.

    • Avoid errors, especially legal ones

  • Some approaches used attract & hold attention include:

    • Lifestyle

    • Fantasy

    • Humorous

    • Slice of life

    • Mood or image

General guidelines for scheduling one s advertising
General Guidelines forScheduling One’s Advertising

  • Ads should…

    • Appear on, or slightly proceed, the days when customers are most likely to purchase.

    • Be concentrated around the times when people receive their payroll checks.

    • Be concentrated during periods of high seasonal demand if the retailer has limited advertising funds.

    • Appear during the time of day/week when the lowest CPM will be obtained.

    • Spaced so that a greater amount of time exists between the advertisement and the purchase time, when a product class has a high level of habitual purchasing

Evaluating advertising s results
Evaluating Advertising’s Results

  • Most ineffective advertising is due to:

    • Messages or sales getting discounted.

    • Advertising not appealing, not giving customers all the information they need, or not directed at the proper target market.

    • Advertising dollars spread too thinly.

    • Poor internal communications.

    • Too many last-minute changes in the advertising copy.

    • Retailer used a medium that reached too many people not in the target market.

Publicity management
Publicity Management

  • When publicity is formally managed, it should be integrated with other elements of the promotion mix.

    • Major advantages of publicity

      • It’s perceived as more objective and credible

      • Likely to appeal to a mass audience.

    • Major disadvantages of publicity

      • It’s difficult to control and time

      • Rumors are just one event that is beyond one’s control and can be highly damaging.

      • Must be prepared for such events if at al possible.
