Retail marketing activities and spend should have a clear goal! It could be to create more in-store traffic or drive customer basket spend – whatever the goal, it needs to be identified upfront, otherwise, you can waste a lot of money.
Marketers must make effective use of communications to ensure existing customers are retained and new customers are won from competitors. The choices of promotional tactics are influenced by factors such as the competitive retail environment, the profit margin on sales, the budget available and of course the best way to reach a specific audience.
The success of a retail marketing project is defined by calculating the additional sales achieved and gain in market share, compared to the cost of the marketing activity. Being able to make sense of this comparison of cost and activity is particularly important to ensure every marketing campaign is a learning process making sure future spend is effective.
