Promotional Mix For the first task of this assignment, I will be choosing two contrasting organizations and I will discuss 1 campaign/advert for each.

Their commercial campaign that I will talk about will be Gillette Fusion Power. I will discuss the promotional mix used in this campaign.

When men observe this campaign being advertised with these famous individuals, it will influence them to go and purchase this product. Stimulate demand - the right promotion can drive customers to make a purchase. In the case of products that a customer has not previously purchased or has not purchased in a long time, the promotional efforts that this organisation uses may be directed at getting the customer to try this product. For products with an established customer-base, promotion can encourage customers to increase their purchasing by providing a reason to purchase products sooner or purchase in greater quantities than they normally do. In this campaign, we can see that there are special offers on this product. ...read more.
