From the Paper:

"Having good products to sell at attractive prices is often not enough for a company to be successful. In order to produce sales and profits, the benefits of products have to be corresponded to consumers. In marketing, this is usually known as promotion (Promotion - introduction to the promotional mix, n.d.). Figuring out an advertising budget is a challenge that all businesses face. But, as media options have become more plentiful and the racket in the marketplace has gone up, the budgeting decision has developed to be more and more complex. The advertising budgeting decision can be split into two main components. The first is how much should be spent on advertising and promotion, and the second is how the total advertising and promotion money set aside for different media, different products, geographic areas or target markets should be spent. One of the focal points of advertising budgeting has to be figuring out just how significant specific brands are for a given firm or market. Advertisers have to consider the relative significance of price, the product itself, or the brand name before choosing how to assign advertising expenditures (CHAPTER 5, Murphy & Cunningham, Advertising & Marketing Communication Management, n.d.). In order to do this one must look at a company's promotional mix."
