BUDGETING This will be a sort of compromise between what is sought as a marketing objective and what is judged affordable The achievement and objectives of the promotional plan will largely be determinated by the available budget Small budgets can produce results if they are focused and not dissipated
OBJETCIVES SETTING This is the key to effective brand promotion If there are several core brand values, which have priority? What are the priorities in terms of market sectors and niches? Targeting may also include deciding which brand values to stress in each sector
PROMOTION METHODES The choice of effective promotional methods depends on the target Most types of promotions will be used for purposes The complicity and collaboration of the sales force is a key factor
DESIGN OF PROMOTION MATERIALS The design is very important for the success It needs to be committed to quality IMAGE, NAME, LOGO, MESSAGE, ADVERTISING, WEBSITE, PACKAGING,PRESS RELEASES …
ADMINISTRATION Administering the promotional budget is a matter of making sure it all happens The staff and resources are in place to ensure this and that the promotions are working towards the key goals
EVALUATION Although in the long run the point of branding is to GENERATE PROFITABLE BUSINESS Branding promotion IS NOT CARRIED OUT to generate sales enquires Its success or otherwise cannot be evaluated in terms of orders or enquires received

PROMOTIONAL LITERATURE This used to be the must-have for all industrial companies It is still important but less so today, being increasingly usurped by the cheaper, more flexible website
DIRECT MAIL Very flexible tool to meet both brand and products objectives It delivers less and less in this noisy promotional market It is used more and more direct e-mailings
MEDIA ADVERTISING IS MORE EFFECTIVE TO BUILDING A BRAND THAN SELLING A PRODUCT
PRESS RELEASE Is best carried out by professionals although in-house work can be effective It is important to tell a consistent story rather than just send out anything which is felt to be vaguely newsworthy
EXHIBITION Attendance at exhibitions can be used effectively to build a brand and works well for high value products that have to be seen, touched and demonstrated
PERSONAL CONTACT Personal contact is EXTREMELY Powerful Need careful management to ensure that there is a uniformity of approach The consistency that we expect should come from strong branding
YES, BUT … WE WORK WITH SUPPLIERS … … SOMETIMES WE DON’T WORK WITH OUR OWN BRAND!
COSTUMER PERCEPTION + THE BEST OPTION … OUR BRAND THEIR BRAND …

Branding is an effective competitive strategy in industrial markets A strong brand blocks out competitive penetration.
