Computer Publication Enhanced Ad Sales Potential

A computer technology publication's readership base consisted of paid subscribers to the publication, as well as a significant number of newsstand buyers. A considerable amount of information had been compiled on the publication's subscriber base and advertising sales strategies, to date, were based on these "subscriber" demographics and buying behavior. Little was known however, about the publication's newsstand buyer characteristics. An opportunity existed to expand advertising sales based upon the additional buying potential represented by these newsstand buyers.

Sales trends had been declining for some time and recent product upgrades had failed to turn the declining trend around. From its introduction, the client's product had been positioned as the "state-of-the art" graphics package.

Consumer Promotion Effectiveness

A major fast food company had any number of promotional strategies that they could employ when deciding to promote various sandwich items. For example, the sandwich could be included as part of an overall meal, (hamburger, fries and a Coke), and the entire meal discounted. The individual sandwich itself could be discounted. Another menu item, such as fries or a soda, could be offered for free in connection with the purchase of the sandwich. The promotional possibilities went on and on.
