Sales Promotion • Sales promotion is any initiative undertaken by an organisation to promote an increase in sales, usage or trial of a product or service (i.e. initiatives that are not covered by the other elements of the marketing communications or promotions mix). It adds an extra value or incentive to the sales force, the distributers, or the ultimate consumer and can simulate immediate sales.
  19. 19. • Sales promotions are varied. Often they are original and creative, and hence a comprehensive list of all available techniques is virtually impossible. • However it can be broken into two major categories – Consumer oriented sales promotion and – Trade oriented sales promotion
  20. 20. • Consumer oriented sales promotion is targeted to the ultimate user of a product or services and includes – couponing, samples, premiums, rebates, contests, sweepstakes, and various point of purchase materials. – Trade oriented sales promotion is targeted towards marketing intermediaries such as wholesalers, distributers, and retailers. • Promotion and merchandising allowances, price deals, sales contests, and trade shows are some of the promotional tool used.

  22. 22. • An advantage of publicity over other forms of promotion is its credibility. • Consumers generally tend to be less skeptical towards favorable information about a product or service when it comes from a source they believe is unbiased. • Publicity is not always under control of an orgnisation and is sometimes unfavorable.

Public Relations • Public Relations (or PR) is a field concerned with maintaining public image for high-profile people, commercial businesses and organizations, non- profit associations or programs. • It defined the practice of public relations as "the art and social science of analyzing trends, predicting their consequences, counseling organizational leaders, and implementing planned programs of action, which will serve both the organization and the public interest."

The personal selling may focus initially on developing a relationship with the potential buyer, but will always ultimately end with an attempt to "close the sale“ • Personal selling is one of the oldest forms of promotion. • It involves the use of a sales force to support a push strategy (encouraging intermediaries to buy the product) or a pull strategy (where the role of the sales force may be limited to supporting retailers and providing after-sales service).
  26. 26. IMC Planning Process • The individuals involved in promotion design a promotional plan that provides the framework for developing, implementing, and controllingthe orgnisation’s integrated marketing communications program and activies. • Promotion is one part of, and must be integrated into, the overall marketing plan and program.

  52. 52. Advertising Budget • The term 'advertising budget' in essence is nothing but planning the advertising expenditure. • Advertising money before spending, it is necessary to ensure its proper investment. • Every ad is a long term investment in the personality of a brand. Therefore, when advertising is recognized as a type of future investment, care must be taken today to make it more effective with proper planning of advertising budget.
  53. 53. IMPORTANCE OF ADVERTISING BUDGET • Check on advertising expenditure • Approval from top management • Balanced focus • Facilitates planned execution • Provides direction for drafting of Ads • Selection of media
  54. 54. Establishing the budget • The size of the firm’s advertising and promotions budget can vary from a few thousand dollar to more than a billion. When companies like Procter & Gamble and General Motors spend over a billion dollar per year to promote their products. • Unfortunately, many managers fail to realize the value of advertising and promotion. They treat the communications budget as an expense rather than an investment. When times get tough, the advertising and promotional budget is the first to be cut. • Moreover, the decision is not a one-time responsibility. A new budget is formulated every year, each time a new product is introduced or when either internal or external factors necessitate a change to maintain competitiveness.
  55. 55. Models used to establish advertising budgets Marginal Analysis • The concept of marginal analysis explained that as advertising/ promotional expenditures increase, sales and gross margins also increases to a point, but then they level off. • Profits are shown to be a result of the gross margin minus advertising expenditures. Using this theory to establish its budget, a firm would continue to spend advertising/promotional money as long as the marginal revenue created by these expenditure exceeded the incremental advertising/promotional cost. • While marginal analysis seems logical intuitively, certain weaknesses limit its usefulness. These weaknesses include the assumptions :- • Sales are a direct measures of advertising and promotions efforts. • Sales are determined solely by advertising and promotion.
  56. 56. SALES RESPONSE MODELS • Almost all advertiser subscribe to one of two models of the advertising /sales response function: • the concave-downward function or • the S-shaped response curve.
  57. 57. The concave-downward function • In this advertising budget follow the law of diminishing returns. That is as the amount of advertisement increases, its incremental value decreases. This means that those with the great potential to buy will buy in the first exposure, while those who are less likely to buy are not likely to change as a result of advertising even each additional adv. will supply little or no new information that will affect their decision
  58. 58. The S-shaped response function • S-shaped response function to the budget outlay. Initial outlays of the advertising budget have little impact( as indicated by the essentially flat sales curve in range A). After a certain budget level has been reached ( the beginning of range B), advertising and promotional efforts begin to have an effect, as additional increment of expenditures result in increased sales. This incremental gain continues only to the point, however, because at the beginning of the range C additional expenditure begin to return little or nothing in the way of sales. This model suggest a small advertising budget is likely to have no impact beyond the sales that may have been generated through other means( for example, word of mouth).
  59. 59. ADVERTISING BUDGET PROCESS • Since advertising is an investment, it should be budgeted like any other investment. The preparation of an advertising budget generally determines the size of advertising expenditure. How much should be spent on advertising? To determine this is the purpose of the advertising budget. • A “budget” is a forward plan of any activity expressed in terms of rupees, and budgeting is the process of this planning. Therefore, the advertising budget is the amount of the proposed advertising expenditure and its apportionment on the various advertising activities of the company. The advertising budget thus serves as a decision- making tool for the top management, in addition to its control function of such expenses.
  60. 60. • The advertising budget is prepared by the advertising manager of the company. However, ad agencies do help him in this planning work. Logically, the starting point of any advertising budget process is the determination of the size of advertising appropriation. Once the total expenditure is arrived at, the next step is the apportionment of this fund among various advertising units over a period. • During the execution of the budget, the advertising manager has to exercise monitoring control so that the funds that have been allocated may be spent in most economical manner.
  61. 61. Budgeting Approaches • After having a clear understanding of what an advertising budget is, let us discuss the various methods of framing the advertising budget. There are no scientific methods which can be employed in determining the amount of the advertising fund to be spent during the year. However, here are a few approaches, which may serve as guides to advertising appropriation decision.
  62. 62. There are two types of approaches • Top down approaches • Bottom up approaches • TOP DOWN APPROACHES- Budgeting approaches in which the budgetary amount is established at the executive level and monies are passed down to the various department. These budgets are essentially predetermine and have no true theoretical basis top down basis . • These budgets are essential y predetermined and have no true theoretical basis. Top-down methods include the affordable method, arbitrary allocation, percentage of sales, competitive parity, and return on investment.
  63. 63. • Bottom up approach- A method of determining the budget for advertising and promotion by determining the specific task that have to be performed and estimating the cost of performing them. A more effective budgeting strategy would be to consider the firm's communications objectives and budget what is deemed necessary to attain these goal.
  64. 64. METHODS OF TOP DOWN APPROACH • Percentage-of-sales method • All you can afford • Arbitrary method • Competitive parity method • Return of investment
  65. 65. Percentage-of-sales method • In the percentage-of-sales method, advertisers use one of the two things in arriving at how much to be spent on advertising. The first one is to select a factor or multiplier, such as 3, 5 or 7 per cent, then multiply this by the sales figures in rupees, and the sum so arrived at is the answer to the question of how much to spend. For example, if the sales are worth Rs. 300 lakhs, taking 3 per cent of this, the advertiser should spend about Rs. 9 lakhs on advertising. By this method, the advertisers determine how much of their sales rupees should be spent on advertising. The sales figure in the above calculation may be based on past sales or expected future sales for the time period for which the advertising appropriation is determined. Either gross or net sales figures can be used.
  66. 66. • The other method of determining the advertising funds to be spent, depends upon the number of machines sold or units of product sold. For example, an automobile firm selling 500 cars a year will decide to spend Rs. 200 for each car sold as advertising expenses. Thus, a total of Rs. One lakh will be the advertising budget. The number of cars sold may be determined on the basis of immediate past sales or the expected future sales.
  67. 67. • The best way is to start with the most appropriate percentage figure bases on an individual's estimate, the industry's average and the competitors' figure, and then improve it in the light of experience gained over a period of time. The percentage figure varies widely from as low as one per cent in mining companies to as high as 40 per cent in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies.
  68. 68. • Advantage of Percentage of sales- • It is financially safe • keeps ad spending within reasonable limits • This method is simple, straightforward • Easy to implement • Disadvantage of Percentage of sales- • Percentage of sales method is also difficult to employ for new product introduction. • If the budget is contingent on sales, decreases in sales will leave to decrease in budget when they most need to be increased. Continuing to cut the advertising and promotion budget may just add impetus to the downward sales trend.
  69. 69. All You Can Afford • The what-can-be-afforded method is yet another decision rule on which many firms base their advertising budgets, particularly firms with limited resources. When fund availability is a constraint, a limited fund is only allocated after other unavoidable expenditures have been met. The rule is also based on the premise that sales are independent of advertising expenditure _ an assumption which is not well founded. The method, moreover, suffers from an inherent shortcoming _ that budget decisions are left to the whim of the management and are not based on rational business needs. Whims are mostly irrational and subjective rather than based on an objective approach.
  70. 70. ARBITRARY METHOD • A variation of the what-can-be-afforded method is yet another subjective method, by which the budget is arbitrarily set without any rationality and analysis of the task of advertising. This is referred to as the arbitrary method Some advertisers decide that they will spend 'X' rupees on advertising next year. They claim that, because of their first hand knowledge of business, they have acquired a sort of "gut feeling" about how much advertising expenses would be appropriate. This is a "human" method.
  71. 71. COMPETITIVE PARITY METHOD • A method of setting the advertising and promotion budget based on matching the absolute level of percentage of sales expenditure of the competition. • The competitive parity method has a number of disadvantages, • It ignores the fact that advertising and promotional are designed to accomplish specific objectives by addressing certain problems and opportunities. • It assumes that because firms have similar expenditures, their programs will be equally effective. • There is no guarantee that competitors will continue to pursue their existing strategies. • Finally, competitive parity may not avoid promotional wars Coke versus Pepsi and Anheuser-Busch versus Miller have been notorious for their spending wars, each responding to the other's increased outlays.
  72. 72. RETURN OF INVESTMENT • A budgeting method in which advertising and promotion are considered investments and thus measurement are made in an attempt to determine the returns achieved by these investment.ROI budgeting method, advertising and promotions are considered investments, like plant and equipment. • While the ROI method looks good on paper, the reality is that it is rarely possible to assess the returns provided by the promotional effort-at least as long as sales continue to be basis for evaluation. ROI remains a virtually unused method of budgeting.
  73. 73. METHODS OF BOTTOM UP APPROACH • OBJECTIVE TASK METHOD- • The objective-and-task approach to advertising budget is based on establishing advertising objectives and the tasks to be accomplished, and then determining the required size of the budget. For example, a company decides to increase the awareness of its brand in a certain market segment to 50 per cent. The required tasks to achieve this awareness are detailed, and a suitable campaign programme is chalked out. The cost of doing so, or, in other words, the cost of achieving the requisite exposure, will be the advertising budget.
  74. 74. • The “objectives" are the advertiser's long-term marketing aims, whereas "task" is a short-term undertaking, usually the next year's sales goals. • The definition of the term task and the determining of the advertising programme should be further elaborated, for they form the most critical steps in the method. No doubt, the primary purpose of advertising is to improve the sales of the company; but besides this, advertising is required to perform some non- selling tasks. Immediate sales may not always be the goals.
  75. 75. Few typical examples of the tasks to be performed by advertising campaigns: 1. To increase an awareness of a product and its promotion; 2. To develop the long-term selling theme - quality product, newness, customer service; 3. To acquaint the market with the brand name; 4. To overcome expected consumer objection to the use of the product; 5. To introduce a new product; 6. To secure the required distribution through wholesalers and retailers.
  76. 76. • The major advantage of the objective and task method is that the budget is driven by the objectives to be attained. The managers closest to the marketing effort will have specific strategies and input into the budget-setting process. • The major disadvantage of this method is the difficulty of determining which till be required and the costs associated with each. For example, specifically what tasks are needed to attain awareness among percent of the target market?
  77. 77. Pay out planning • It is use full when new products are introduced. • It is used in conjunction with other budgeting methods to estimate the investment value of advertising. • The commitment is to invest heavily in advertising to achieve increased awareness and product acceptance. • The basic idea is to develop a projection of revenues the product will generate, and the costs it will incur over a period of two or three years.
  78. 78. Quantitative models • Regression models etc.
  79. 79. Experimental approach • It is an alternative to using statistical approaches and mathematical models. • Test and experiments are done in one or more selected market areas. • The purpose is to determine the impact of input variations that might be used. • The feedback data of this experiment is used to determine the ad. Budget.
  80. 80. D A G M A R Approach Defining Advertising Goals for Measured Advertising Results
  81. 81. • Russell Colley (1961) developed a model for setting advertising objectives and measuring the results. This model was entitled ‘Defining Advertising Goals for Measured Advertising Results- DAGMAR.’ • DAGMAR model suggests that the ultimate objective of advertising must carry a consumer through four levels of understanding: from unawareness to Awareness— the consumer must first be aware of a brand or company Comprehension—he or she must have a comprehension of what the product is and its benefits; Conviction—he or she must arrive at the mental disposition or conviction to buys the brand; Action— finally, he or she actually buy that product.
  82. 82. • Awareness • Awareness of the existence of a product or organization is necessary before the purchase behaviour can be expected. Once the awareness has been created in the target audience, it should not be neglected. If there is neglect, the audience may become distracted by competing messages and the level of awareness of focus product or organization will decline. • Awareness needs to be created, developed, refined or sustained, according to the characteristics of the market and the particular situation facing an organization at any one point of time
  83. 83. • In situations where: • Buyer experiences high involvement: • Is fully aware of a product’s existence, attention and awareness levels need only be sustained and efforts need to be applied to other communication tasks. • sales promotion and personal selling are more effective at informing, persuading and provoking consumption of a new car once advertising has created the necessary levels of awareness. • The LG golden eye ads that are repeatedly shown in spite of high awareness to ensure top of mind awareness and retain the existing awareness levels. • Where low levels of awareness are found, getting attention needs to be the prime objective in order that awareness can be developed among the target audience. • Adequate attention is required and awareness levels are raised with use of well-known and trusted celebrities
  84. 84. • Buyer experiences low involvement: • If buyers have sufficient level of awareness, they will be quickly prompted into purchase with little assistance of the other elements of the mix. Recognition and brand image may be felt by some to be sufficient triggers to stimulate a response. The requirement in such a situation would be to refine and strengthen the level of awareness so that it provokes interest and stimulates greater involvement during recall or recognition. • Parle G ad that talks about it being the largest seller . Parle G as a brand already enjoys high levels of awareness and requires low involvement decision, thus communication is mainly intended to refine awareness. • If buyers have low level of awareness, the prime objective has to be to create awareness of the focus product in association with the product class. • When coils were popular in use and then the different repellants entered the market, awareness had to be created about their benefits and use.
  85. 85. • Comprehension • Awareness on its own may not be sufficient to stimulate a purchase. Knowledge about the product or the organization is necessary. This can be achieved by providing specific information about key brand attributes. • In attempting to persuade people to try a different brand of water, it may be necessary to compare the product with other mineral water products and provide an additional usage benefit, such as environmental claims. The ad of Ganga mineral water, featuring Govinda, which banked on the purity aspect. They related the purity of the water with that of river Ganga.
  86. 86. • Conviction • The next step is to establish a sense of conviction. By creating interest and preference, buyers are moved to a position where they are convinced that a particular product in the class should be tried at the next opportunity. To do this, audience’s beliefs about the product have to be moulded and this is often done through messages that demonstrate the product’s superiority over a rival or by talking about the rewards as a result of using the product. • Many ads like Thumbs Up featured the reward of social acceptance as ‘grown up’. It almost hinted that those who preferred other drinks were kids.
  87. 87. • Action • Communication must finally encourage buyers to engage in purchase activity. Advertising can be directive and guide the buyers into certain behavioural outcomes, • Use of toll free numbers, direct mail activities and reply cards and coupons. • Tupperware, Aqua Guard, are famous in Indian cities as a result of its personal selling efforts. • For high involvement decisions, the most effective tool in the communication mix at this stage in the hierarchy is personal selling. Through the use of interpersonal skills, buyers are more likely to want to buy a product than if personal prompting is absent.
  88. 88. • Characteristics of Objectives • A major contribution of DAGMAR was Colley’s specification of what constitutes a good objective. Four requirements or characteristics of good objectives were noted • Concrete and measurable—the communications task or objective should be a precise statement of what appeal or message the advertiser wants to communicate to the target audience. Furthermore the specification should include a description of the measurement procedure • Target audience –a key tenet to DAGMAR is that the target audience be well defined. For example – if the goal was to increase awareness, it is essential to know the target audience precisely. The benchmark measure cannot be developed without a specification of the target segment
  89. 89. Benchmark and degree of change sought—another important part of setting objectives is having benchmark measures to determine where the target audience stands at the beginning of the campaign with respect to various communication response variables such as awareness, knowledge, attitudes, image, etc. The objectives should also specify how much change or movement is being sought such as increase in awareness levels, creation of favourable attitudes or number of consumers intending to purchase the brand, etc. a benchmark is also a prerequisite to the ultimate measurement of results, an essential part of any planning program and DAGMAR in particular.
  90. 90. • Specified time period—a final characteristic of good objectives is the specification of the time period during which the objective is to be accomplished, e.g. 6months, 1 year etc. With a time period specified a survey to generate a set if measures can be planned and anticipated. • Written Goal - finally goals should be committed to paper. When the goals are clearly written, basic shortcomings and misunderstandings become exposed and it becomes easy to determine whether the goal contains the crucial aspects of the DAGMAR approach

  95. 95. 1) Consumer Market Segmentation 2) Business Market Segmentation 3) International Market Segmentation Types Of Market Segmentation
  96. 96. There is no single way to segment a market. A marketer has to try different segmentation variables, alone and in combination to find the best way to view the market structure. Consumer market can be segmented through the following variables A. Geographic segmentation B. Demographic segmentation C. Psychographic segmentation D. Behavioral segmentation 1. Consumer Market Segmentation
