  13. Premiums and Advertising Specialties • Premiums: a free or reduced price item with purchase of another item • Free premiums provide item at no cost to consumer • Self-liquidating premiums require consumers to pay most of the cost of the item • Advertising specialties: • A message placed on a free, useful item: pens, ball caps, coffee mugs 15

  26. P-O-P and Mobile Location Marketing 15 Some argue that P-O-P is Mobile Location Marketing But, new technologies allow sending P-O-P offers through mobile devices Consumer attitudes toward location marketing are still unknown 26

  27. P-O-P Advertising and the Trade and Business Markets • Product displays and information sheets encourage retailers to support one distributor or manufacturer’s brand over another. • P-O-P promotions can help win precious shelf space and exposure in a retail setting. • A P-O-P display should be designed to draw attention to a brand, increase turnover, and possibly distribute coupons or sweepstakes entry forms. • To combat losing business to online shopping, retailers are trying to enliven the retail environment, and point-of-purchase displays are a key strategy. 15

  28. Support Media Purpose: To reinforce or extend a message being delivered through other media • Signs, billboards, posters • Transit and Aerial advertising • Cinema advertising • Directory advertising • Packaging 15

  37. Check Your Understanding What is the difference between advertising specialties and business gifts? • Specialties have the sponsor’s logo on them, while business gifts do not. • Specialties promote brand awareness, while business gifts promote close working relationships. • Specialties are quite expensive, while business gifts are very inexpensive. • Specialties are given on a selective basis, while business gifts are distributed to all. 15

  38. Check Your Understanding Shampoo manufacturers sometimes run a promotion in which they shrink-wrap two plastic bottles of shampoo for the price of one.
