Sales promotion:


Marketing activities other than personal selling, advertising and publicity that stimulate customers and dealers effectively, such as display shows, exhibitions, demonstrations and various non-recurrent selling efforts not in the ordinary routine are the sales promotion measures. Sales promotional activities are devices aimed at reaching the consumer at home or in his business establishment. The tools are generally in the form of samples, contest, demonstrations and coupons. Sales promotion directed at consumers may be done with a view to increase the products rate of use among existing customers or to attract new customers to the company’s product.

a)         Gift

b)        Contest

c)         Discount and commission

d)        Entertainment

e)         Travel and tours
