  • What is your customer's profile?

  • Understand your customers' disposable income.

  • Plan promotional schedules around specific activities that are going to affect your customer base.

  • Develop a budget for each promotional activity prior to commencing on the promotional activity highlighting what you hope to achieve, what it is going to cost to promote and then analyze the performance against the budget expectation after the promotional activity is concluded.
