Introduction

Promotion Promotion is also an important factor as this will help me to use different methods to attract my customers to my product. This will involve using different ways of advertising the product to my intended audience. It will also provide consumers with information so that they are able to make a more informed choice about what they buy. I also believe that my advertising will encourage more competition from my competitors. To do this I will use below-the-line promotional methods that do not involve the media. Firstly I will offer free samples to customers so that they are able to taste the deserts and treats that we offer before purchasing them for the full price. Hopefully this will tempt them on the spot and they will be quickly influenced to purchase one of my products. ...read more.

When my business is fully established I will attempt to make a website so that people can have a look at what ice-creams and deserts I sell before making a trip to my shop. In order to attract a wider range of customers and as many customers as possible I will list the entire ingredients used to make each and every one of my products so that people will have a choice to choose one of my very healthy ice-cream and desert or one of my regular ice-creams and deserts which are not that healthy.

Conclusion

A magazine is not suitable as they are normally national. Another very good method would be adverting on local transport, as they will be seen by people in the local area. This will also depend on the results of my questionnaire. A mail shoot I think would be a good method as I can target a specific group, and it is very cheap, but this will also depend on my research. Advertising in a local cinema would be a very good method, but because it only goes to a limited number of people it wouldn't be that successful. Also as films are normally seen by young people, this is a disadvantage as they often have the least money. The method of advertising that I am choosing has little effect on the local area. The only effect that there is that the leaflets that are delivered are just thrown away damaging the environment. ...read more.
