    • Typical Objectives
      • Increase volume
      • Increase trial
      • Increase repeat purchase
      • Increase loyalty
    • ... and more:
      • Widening usage
      • Create interest
      • Deflect attention from price
      • Gaining intermediary support
      • Discriminate amongst users
    • Try it for yourself...
      • Match the objective to the best promotional mechanic:
      • Evaluate on a scale from 9 = Very good ... 5 = OK ... 1 = Not really suitable 0 = Out of the question
    • Get some creativity into your promotions
      • Meet Reggy from Manchester:
      • Hello, my name is Reggie and I’m your feathered friend - you can take me home with you if you wish For £2.50 you can send one of my feathered friends to one of your feathered friends.
    • What’s up with Reggy?
      • What do you want from a hotel?
      • How can you communicate this?
      • Who is the best promoter of a hotel?
      • What do you want that person to do ?
    • The who and what...
      • Stop C1s, A and Bs and get a bit more creative
      • Think about relationships and relationship to your brand: Lager (for example): Existing drinkers of your brand Lager drinkers (different brand) Ale drinkers Wine drinkers People who vary what they drink Home drinkers Pub drinkers
    • Maybe they are also:
      • Amateur pop singers
      • Fashion followers
      • Tennis players
      • Golfers
      • Classical music devotees
      • ...
    • ... And what should they do?
      • Existing drinkers of your brand: recommend your brand
      • Lager drinkers (different brand): switch brand
      • Ale drinkers: switch to lager, your brand
      • Wine drinkers: try lager when it’s hot
      • People who vary what they drink: be consistent, your brand
      • Home drinkers: go to the pub
      • Pub drinkers: take lager home
    • So now we can picture them...
      • We want tennis players who are not consistent in their drink to drink our lager once a week in their tennis club
      • We want wine drinkers who are also classical music devotees to try a nice’n cool lager when it is hot
      • We want amateur pop singers who drink in the pub to take a crate of our brand home
