I will attempt to identify the methods and strategies that are used by the company when promoting and trying to increase the sales of the Tommy Denim range of jeans and clothing, I shall then attempt to develop my own, better strategies. Marketing is essential to the success of any business. Its primary aim is to enable businesses to meet the needs of their customers and potential customers, whether for profit or not but in the long term hopefully increasing sales.

By putting together sources of primary and secondary data and conducting interviews with the management team within the store, I shall put together a strategy that is based on a combination of solutions from the marketing mix.
