In marketing, this is commonly known as "promotion". It is not enough for a business to have good products sold at attractive prices. To generate sales and profits, the benefits of products have to be communicated to customers”

BUDGETS The promotional activities that are available to your business will be shaped by human resources, physical resources and financial resources.

The real benefit of a promotional campaign is hard to prove. Business would cut promotional costs rather than lay off staff or look for savings elsewhere. !!Discuss this in your introduction to the task
Physical Resources Promotional activities require physical resources such as print, IT equipment, distribution systems.
