ABOUT SALES PROMOTIONS
Sales promotion is one of the seven aspects of the promotional mix. (The other six parts of the promotional
mix are advertising, personal selling, direct marketing, publicity/public relations, corporate image and exhibitions.)
Media and non-media marketing communication are employed for a pre-determined, limited time to increase consumer
demand, stimulate market demand or improve product availability. Examples include contests, coupons, freebies,
loss leaders, point of purchase displays, premiums, prizes, product samples, and rebates
Sales promotions can be directed at either the customer, sales staff, or distribution channel members
(such as retailers). Sales promotions targeted at the consumer are called consumer sales promotions. Sales promotions
targeted at retailers and wholesale are called trade sales promotions. Some sale promotions, particularly ones with
unusual methods, are considered gimmicks by many.
Sales promotion includes several communications activities that attempt to provide added value or incentives to
consumers, wholesalers, retailers, or other organizational customers to stimulate immediate sales. These efforts
can attempt to stimulate product interest, trial, or purchase. Examples of devices used in sales promotion include
coupons, samples, premiums, point-of-purchase (POP) displays, contests, rebates, and sweepstakes.
