The success of any firm largely depends on customers patronage, for any firm to push its products to the consumers effectively, there is the need to carryout promotional campaigns to communicate with the ultimate consumers without promotion, customers may not be aware of the existence of the particular product, hence patronage may remain very low. Many promotional tools are used to communicate with the consumers but sales promotion tends to be the most effective of all due to the extra incentive it provides to consumers.
Alexandra (1960) viewed sales promotion“as a marketing activity other than personal selling, advertising, public and public relations that induces and stimulates consumers purchase and dealers effectiveness”. The importance of sales promotion campaigns are seen at the point of purchase where it is used to support personal selling and advertising, it is rarely used alone as a promotional tool. In marketing practice, the application of all promotion tools is called promotional mix.
Sales promotion as an effective promotional tool tends to serve “as direct inducement that to offers an extra, values or incentives on the product to the sales force, distributors and the ultimate consumers with the primary objective of creating an immediate sale”. Sales promotion tends to act as an a acceleration tool designed to speed up the selling process and maximizes sales volume through increasing market share. The acceleration tool motivates consumers to purchase a larger quantity of a brand and it also shorten the purchase cycle of the trade and consumers by encouraging them to take more immediate actions.
As the use of sales promotion increase, companies now started considering what they hope to accomplish through their promotional campaigns because not all sales promotion campaigns are designed to achieve the same goals, marketers must plan sales promotion programmes by carrying out situation analysis, to determine sales promotion target audience. Marketing manager must think beyond short term sales while the basic goal of most consumers sales promotion is to induce consumers purchase, and marketer objective could be to defend current market share, increase consumption through enhanced marketing efforts.
