Notas do Editor

  • Every tool has the same objective which involves motivating consumers to buy a product , but they all have different means of achieving that objective
    It is not just enough for an organization to place its product in the market, it has to create means through which cnsumers become aware of its product
    So lets say the objective of a company is to clear out its inventory, there are tools appropriate for such an objective and as we go further into this presentation,
  • For example, sometimes the message been passed across by organizations is not been understood by the targeted consumers which could lead to failure on the part of the organization to achieve its objective.
  • Organizations using public relations are not just looking to get consumers to buy their product one time, they are trying to establish a long term relationship with them, get them to keep coming back to buy their product
  • a company can use public relation to communicate to the public about its products characteristics as well as its benefits.
    In the case of special events, in depth information can be provided to customers about the product or service offering and in the case of public events, an organization can decide to sponsor an Olympic event or a charitable event, all with the aim of raising awareness of the new product.
  • An organization could experience a bad situation which it would wish to address using the media. In using the media, events could occur that would not allow the media to deliver the message an organization wanted to pass across to its consumers. This events would av to be more important than the message the organization is trying to convey to the public.
  • paid for . . . " is pretty straightforward. If an ad is created and placed in the media, the costs of creation and time or space in the media must be paid for. This is a major area in which advertising departs from public relations.
  • Informing the consumers about the price, quality, availability, direction and quantity of a product not only simplifies the work of a salesman but also eliminates the need for a middleman. After watching a commercial, consumers know where the product is made available for purchase.
  • Customers are more likely to listen to a sales rep talking about sales promotion than just the product itself.
  • Allows for a two way communication whereby the customer an share his thoughts or concerns and the sales person can provide feed back
