Promotion The main objectives of promotion for a company are to inform customers about their products, to tell the customers about the advantages of using their product and to persuade customers and potential customers to buy their products. However many businesses have other reasons for promotion: such as presenting a good image of the business and the products, finding a new market, extending the life of a product or launching a new product. Types of advertising Some advertisements are informative; this means they just give people important information about the product. However most advertisements are persuasive, this is when they tell people about a product in such a way that they are persuaded to actually buy the product. Below is a list of different types of advertising: * Television * Radio * Cinema * Newspapers and magazines * Posters * Leaflets * Internet Television- Advertising space is sold by sots and the slot may be a few seconds or minutes. Cost varies according to length of time and area shown and the time of the day. ...read more.

Posters- Advantages Disadvantages * Large impact if in a good location. ...read more.


I did not choose Posters as one of my marketing campaigns because a lot of the time these posters either get vandalised or passers by just ignore the advert because they do not have time. I feel that the cinema is a good choice for a marketing campaign because when people are at the cinema and they are watching the adverts that is all they are focused on because they cant start channel flicking or start doing other stuff. Also with the impact of the big screen it brings attention to the viewers with the sound and moving images. I also think that Newspapers are a good choice for my marketing campaign because newspapers can be long lasting. E.g. newspaper left lying around in the doctors. I will either use a local newspaper so that I can target a specific location or I would use a specialist magazine because the people who read the specialist magazine are obviously looking for the product that the magazine specialises in.
