Introduction

Promotion Before a business carries out a promotional campaign, it must decided whether the campaign if to advertise a new product, a new product or the whole brand. Once this is done the business must carry out market research that covers the following points; * Potential customers, customer types and target market * The target markets habits i.e. when they watch TV, what magazines they buy etc. * How many times the advertisers wish the potential customers to see an advertisement * How great a percentage of the market they wish to reach, etc. Promotion is all about getting your message across to the consumers about you're your product. This message you're trying to get across to them is all about "FaBs" which stands for "Features and Benefits".

The product is released on to the market and starts to get sales. In this case the toy company will have released the product just before Christmas for maximum sales as the consumers are buying gifts for their children or friends. All advertising is split into two categories, above or below the line advertising, or sometimes both which means that it will be on the line. Advertising which is described as being above the line is advertising which is paid for by the company and is visible and obvious to the target audience.

Examples are merchandising and PR agencies. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
