Executing a Retail Marketing Strategy
Retail managers develop marketing strategies based on the goals established by stakeholders and the overall strategic plans developed by company leadership. The first and foremost task in developing a retail strategy is to define the target market. Defining a retail operation entails combining the elements of the retailing mix to come up with a single retailing method to attract the target market. The retailing mix consists of the four Ps (product, promotion, place and price) plus presentation and personnel. The combination of the 6 Ps projects a store's (or Web site's) image and influences customers' perceptions. Using these impressions, shoppers position one store or Web site against another. Managers must make sure that the positioning is aligned with target customers' expectations.
the first element in the retailing mix is the product offering. Developing a product offering is essentially a question of the width and depth of the product assortment.
retail promotion strategy includes advertising, public relations and publicity and sales promotion. The goal is to help position the store or website in customers' minds. Retailers design intriguing ads, stage special events, and develop promotions aimed at their target markets. Other promotions: sales events, coupons and discounts for certain products or customer groups. One risk associated with store promotions is brand cannibalization.
the reduction of sales for one brand as the result of the introduction of a new product or promotion of a current product by another brand.
one or more unique aspects of an organization that cause target consumers to patronize that firm rather than competitors
a plan for the optimal use of the elements of promotion: advertising, public relations, personal selling, sales promotion, and social media. It informs of a product's benefits and thereby positioning the product in the marketplace. The main function of a marketer's promotional strategy is to convince target customers that the goods and services offered provide a competitive advantage over the competition.
direct, face-to-face communication between two or more people.
the communication of a concept or message to large audiences. Directed through a mass medium such as television or newspapers. When a company advertises, it generally doesn't personally know the people with whom it is trying to communicate. Furthermore, the company often can't respond immediately to consumers' reactions to its messages (unless they are using social media or other Internet-based marketing tools). Any clutter from competitors' messages or other distractions in the environment can reduce the effectiveness of the mass-communications effort. Example: Sephora uses many different mass media vehicles (magazines, Internet, and television) to reach its target audience.
The Communications Process
marketers are both senders and receivers of messages. AS senders, marketers attempt to inform, persuade, and remind the target market to take actions compatible with the need to promote the purchase of goods and services. As receivers, marketers listen to the target market in order to develop the appropriate messages, adapt existing messages, and spot new communication opportunities. Most marketing communication is a two-way, rather than a one-way process.
originator of the message in the communications process. For an advertisement, the sender is the company or organization itself.

Marketing managers must ensure a proper match between the message conveyed and the target market's attitudes and ideas.
the receiver's response to a message. Feedback may be verbal, as in saying "I agree" or nonverbal as in nodding, smiling, frowning or gesturing.
Goals of Promotion
People communicate with one another for many reasons. Promotion seeks to modify behavior and thoughts in some way. Promotion can perform one or more of 4 tasks: inform the target audience, persuade the target audience, remind the target audience or connect with the audience.
seeks to convert an existing need into a want or to stimulate interest in a new product. It is more prevalent during the early stages of the product life cycle. Informative messages are important for promoting complex and technical products such as automobiles, computers, and investment services. For example, shortly after Google unveiled the Google Glass wearable computer and display, it released a series of commercials showing various practical uses for the device. A commercial titled "How It Feels" demonstrated point-of-view video and capture, messaging, video chatting, search, weather, mapping and more.
Persuasive Promotion is designed to stimulate a purchase or action. Persuasion typically becomes the main promotion goal when the product enters the growth stage of its life cycle. The target market should have general product awareness and some knowledge of how the product can fulfill its wants. The promotional message emphasizes the product's real and perceived competitive advantages, often appealing to emotional needs such as love, belonging , self-esteem and ego. For example, advertisers of Android-based smartphones try to persuade users to purchase their companies' devices instead of an iPhone.

most promotional strategies use several ingredients-which may include advertising, public relations, sales promotion, personal selling, and social media-to reach a target market. The proper promotional mix is the one that management believes will meet the needs of the target market and fulfill the organization's overall goals. Data plays a very important role in how marketers distribute funding among their promotional mix tactics.
any form of impersonal paid communication in which the sponsor or company is identified. Traditional media-such as television, radio, newspapers, magazines, pay-per-click online advertising, display advertising, direct mail, billboards, and transmit advertising (such as on buses and taxis and at bus stops)p are most commonly used to transmit advertisements to consumers. One of the primary benefits of advertising is its ability to communicate to a large number of people at one time. Advertising has the advantage of being able to reach the masses (through national television networks), but it can also be microtargeted to small groups of potential customers, such as television ads on a targeted cable network. (Although the cost per contact in advertising is very low, the total cost to advertise is typically very high).
marketing function that evaluates public attitudes identifies areas within the organization the public may be interested in, and executes a program of action to earn public understanding and acceptance. Public relations helps an organization communicate with its customers, suppliers, stockholders, government officials, employees, and the community in which it operates.

A public relations program can generate favorable publicity-public information about a company, product, service, or issue appearing in the mass media as a news item.

Marketers often use sales promotion to improve the effectiveness of other ingredients in the promotional mix, especially advertising and personal selling.

A company about to introduce a new product or open a new store may send a press release to the media in the hope that the story will be published or broadcast. Savvy publicity can often create overnight sensations or build up a reserve of goodwill with consumers. Corporate donations and sponsorships can also create favorable publicity.
