1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

 

Advertiser’s primary mission is to reach prospective customers
and influence their awareness, attitudes and buying behaviour. They spend a lot
of money to keep individuals (markets) interested in their products. To
succeed, they need to understand what makes potential customers behave the way
they do. The advertisers goals is to get enough relevant market data to develop
accurate profiles of buyers-to-find the common group (and symbols) for
communications this involves the study of consumers behaviour: the mental and
emotional processes and the physical activities of people who purchase and use
goods and services to satisfy particular needs and wants. Advertising
is any paid form of non personal presentation and promotion of ideas, goods, or
services by an identified sponsor (Kotler and Armstrong, 2010). There are
various forms of advertising like informative advertising, persuasive
advertising, comparison advertising, and reminder advertising. Informative
advertising is used to inform consumers about a new product, service or future
or build primary demand. It describes available products and services, corrects
false impressions and builds the image of the company, (Kotler,
2010).Advertising can be done through print media which includes news papers
,magazines ,brochures ,Audio media for example Radio, and visual media which
includes billboards, and television (Kotler and Armstrong 2010).

Sales
performance describes the trend of collections in terms of revenue when
comparing different periods (MC Cathy, 1994). The sales may be in form of
offering products or services to consumers. A service is any activity or
benefit that one party can offer to another that is essentially intangible and
does not result in ownership of anything (Kotler and Armstrong, 2010).Sales
volume is the core interest of every organization and is based on sales and
profit .When volume goes up profits rises and management in organizations is
made easier.
