  • 49. 49www.studyMarketing.org Types of Sales PromotionTypes of Sales Promotion TypeType CharacteristicsCharacteristics IllustrationIllustration Coupons Manufacturers or retailers advertise special discounts for customers who redeem coupons. P&G mails consumers a 25-cents- off coupon for Sure deodorant, which can be redeemed at any supermarket. Refund or rebate A consumer submits proof-of- purchase (usually to the manufacturer) and receives an extra discount. First Alert home fire alarms provides $5 rebates to consumers submitting proof of purchase. Samples Free merchandise or services are given consumers, generally for new items. When Sunlight dishwashing liquid was introduced, free samples were mailed to consumers. Contests or sweepstakes Consumers compete for prizes by answering questions (contests) or filling out forms for random drawings of prices (sweepstakes). Publishers Clearinghouse sponsors annual sweepstakes and awards automobiles, houses, and other prices.
  • 50. 50www.studyMarketing.org TypeType CharacteristicsCharacteristics IllustrationIllustration Bonus or multipacks Consumers receive discounts for purchasing in quantity Some stores run I-cent sales, whereby the consumer buys one item and gets a second one for a penny. Point-of- purchase displays In-store displays remind customers and generate impulse purchases. Chewing gum sales in supermarkets are high because displays arc placed at checkout counters. Special events Manufacturers or retailers sponsor celebrity appearances, fashion shows, and other activities. Virtually every major league baseball team has an annual "Old Timers' Day," which attracts large crowds. Gifts Consumers are given gifts for making a purchase or opening a new account. Savings banks offer a range of gifts for consumers opening new accounts or expanding existing ones. Types of Sales PromotionTypes of Sales Promotion
  • 51. 51www.studyMarketing.org Sales Promotion AdvantagesSales Promotion Advantages • It helps attract customer traffic and maintain brand or store loyalty • Quick results can be achieved • Some forms of sales promotion (calendars, t-shirts. Pens, etc) provide value to the consumer and are retained by them; and these forms can provide a reminder function • Impulse purchases can be increased through in-store displays
  • 52. 52www.studyMarketing.org Sales Promotion DisadvantagesSales Promotion Disadvantages • The image of the firm may be lessened if it continuously runs promotions. Consumers may view discounts as representing a decline in product quality and believe the firm could not sell its offerings without them. • When coupons, rebates, or other special deals are used frequently, consumers may not make purchases if the items are sold at regular prices. Instead, they will stock up each time there is a promotion.
  • 53. 53www.studyMarketing.org Sales Promotion DisadvantagesSales Promotion Disadvantages • Sometimes sales promotions shift the focus away from the product onto secondary factors. Consumers may be attracted by calendars, coupons, or sweepstakes instead of by product quality, functions, and durability. In the short run this generates consumer enthusiasm. In the long run this may have adverse effects on a brand's image and on sales, because a product- related differential advantage has not been developed.

  • 62. 62www.studyMarketing.org Consumers and Price DecisionsConsumers and Price Decisions ConsumersConsumers • The relationship between price and consumer purchases and perceptions is explained by two economic principles — the law of demand and price elasticity of demand • The law of demand states that consumers usually purchase more units at a low price than at a high price • The price elasticity of demand defines the sensitivity of buyers to price changes in terms of the quantities they will purchase
  • 63. 63www.studyMarketing.org ElasticElastic DemandDemand ElasticElastic DemandDemand • Elastic demand occurs if relatively small changes in price result in large changes in quantity demanded • Numerically, price elasticity is greater than 1 • With elastic demand, total revenue goes up when prices are decreased and goes down when prices rise • Inelastic demand takes place if price changes have little impact on quantity demanded • Price elasticity is less than 1 • With inelastic demand, total revenue goes up when prices are raised and goes down when prices decline In-elasticIn-elastic DemandDemand In-elasticIn-elastic DemandDemand Consumers and Price DecisionsConsumers and Price Decisions

  • 68. 68www.studyMarketing.org Channel Members and Price DecisionsChannel Members and Price Decisions ChannelChannel MembersMembers • A wholesaler or retailer can gain stronger control over price by stressing its importance as a customer to the manufacturer, refusing to carry unprofitable product, stocking competitive items, and developing strong dealer brands so that consumers are loyal to the seller and not the manufacturer • Sometimes retailers engage in selling against the brand, whereby they stock merchandise, place high prices on it, and then sell other brands for lower prices. This is often done to increase the sales of their own brands
  • 69. 69www.studyMarketing.org Channel Members and Price DecisionsChannel Members and Price Decisions ChannelChannel MembersMembers • To ensure channel member cooperation with price decisions, the manufacturer needs to consider four factors: channel member profit margins, price guarantees, special deals, and the impact of price increases
