Promotion is an effort to convince potential customers that the “right” product is available at the “right” price often through publicity, advertisement, sales promotion and other promotion techniques.


  1. Pricing – off

This is a strategy that involves temporary price reductions to retailers with the intent that savings will be passed along to consumers. Another consumer-oriented promotion technique is the direct price-off deal, which reduces the price of the brand.

         ii. Coupon

In marketing, a coupon is a ticket or document that can be redeemed for a financial discount or rebate when purchasing a product.

Customarily, coupons are issued by manufacturers of consumer packaged goods or by retailers, to be used in retail stores as a part of sales promotions. They are often widely distributed through the mail, coupon envelopes, magazines, newspapers, the Internet (social media, email newsletter), directly from the retailer, and mobile devices such as cell phones.

         iii. Salesman competition

This is a contest that brings in reward for salesmen and the company they represent. It is said to occur when companies equipped their sales representatives and aspiring for a large customer base.

          iv. Loyalty scheme

A loyalty program is a marketing strategy designed to encourage customers to continue to shop at or use the services of a business associated with the program. The loyalty scheme is just a way to show appreciation by rewarding loyal customers, but how to do it is very important. It goes a long way in determining the relationship with customers moving forward.


  1. Data Generation

The business stands the chance of generating good data that will help in repositioning it in the long run. Generating data pertaining to customers will give room for strategy and planning. It could be used to improve the business bottom line but all depends on how it effectively use those data.

While the best customers may be bringing in the lion’s share of business profit, worst customers are the bargain-hunters that spend little and only buy discounted goods. However, the loyalty schemes there could be used to win back those lapsed customers.


  1. Allows the business to focus on Good Customers

The thing is that loyal customers buy more and are often willing to pay more, which boosts business cash flow. Remember, by increasing loyalty, a business can increase profitability and extend the time they place their business with it.


       v. Bonuses

This relates to financial and non- financial rewards given to customers in appreciation and recognition for purchasing one brand rather than another. i.e. sweepstakes, coupons, premium, display allowance etc.
