Picture 4: Picture 4 shows a luxury hotel room. This is a standard hotel with leisure facilities. The target market for this are couples and people with high income and social group who belong to category A. The reason is that they can afford the hotel cost and they would want high taste while on holiday. The market segments lifestyle and social group. Having achieved the promotional campaign and knowing that the target markets are and the segment that they belong to. The most important thing to do is to identify the promotional techniques and material, which is going to be used so as to meet the target market and the aim of the campaign. What are the promotional techniques Going places use and why? Going places use advertisement and display. They are using advertisement because they advertise their products in brochure, Teletext and Internet. There are different types of brochures for different holiday. Picture and images of what the holiday look like are included in the brochures. Also the prices of holiday are also included and timetable schedules for flights are included. They use display in front of their shops so as people walking by and wish to go on holiday will see the types of holidays they offer. What promotional material are they using and why?

They aslo use the internet to advertise products. This is good because they write in much details on different types of holiday. They also use different colours to enhance their products. Pictures are also scan to describe the holiday. It is also good because they have different types of international websites. Also, they have their slogan on the website. Sales promotion is also one of their promotional techniques. They do different offers to get more customers which is absolutely good. I don't think they need to improve on it because they have different offer. Going Places aslo use display as one of their promotional techniques. They display their products mostly on their stores windows. I think its good because they design it to standard. But what I think its bad about them is that they don't use other materials like football stadium to display their products. I think they should improv it by displaying their products on football stadium, local and national buses, postbills and so on. D3: how you would evaluate the success of Going Places promotional techniques and materials. I think that the organisation promotional techniques and material that I mentioned in D2 have been sucessful because of the following factors: I known they have been a sucessful organisation because I personally logged on to the Internet to get ecomonical informations on the finicial ascept of the organisation. I looked at there finicial review profit before tax for year 2001 which was �110.1 million in United Kingdom only. They achieve this profit because of the promotional techniques and materials used. This has been improved that year. Also, I have compare the organisation with different competitors like Thomas cook and First choice. But I decided to compare the profit made from Going Places and First Choice in year 2001 which is same month. Going places made �110.1million as profit before its taxed while First Choice made �79.6million as profit before tax. From this finicial analysis, I could see that Going Places as been sucessful. They achieve this once more with different offers, promotional techniques and promotional materials used. ...read more.
