concentrate its limited resources on the greatest opportunities to increase sales and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage.[1] Marketing strategy includes all basic and long-term activities in the field of marketing that deal with the analysis of the strategic initial situation of a company and the formulation, evaluation and selection of marketoriented strategies and therefore contribute to the goals of the company and its marketing objectives Marketing strategies serve as the fundamental underpinning of marketing plans designed to fill market needs and reach marketing objectives.[3] Plans and objectives are generally tested for measurable results. Commonly, marketing strategies are developed as multi-year plans, with a tactical plan detailing specific actions to be accomplished in the current year. Time horizons covered by the marketing plan vary by company, by industry, and by nation, however, time horizons are becoming shorter as the speed of change in the environment increases.[4] Marketing strategies are dynamic and interactive. They are partially planned and partially unplanned. See strategy dynamics. Marketing strategy involves careful scanning of the internal and external environments.[5] Internal environmental factors include the marketing mix, plus performance analysis and strategic constraints.[6] External environmental factors include customer analysis, competitor analysis, target market analysis, as well as evaluation of any elements of the technological, economic, cultural or political/legal environment likely to impact success.[4][7] A key component of marketing strategy is often to keep marketing in line with a company's overarching mission statement.[8]

A sales promotion strategy is an activity that is designed to help boost the sales of a product or service. This can be done through an advertising campaign, public relation activities, a free sampling campaign, a free gift campaign, a trading stamps campaign, through demonstrations and exhibitions, through prize giving competitions, through temporary price cuts, and through door-to-door sales, telemarketing, personal sales letters, and emails. The importance of a sales promotion strategy cannot be underestimated. This is because a sales promotion strategy is important to a business boosting its sales. When developing a sales promotion strategy for your business, it is important that you keep the following points in mind. * Consumer attitudes and buying patterns * your brand strategy * Your competitive strategy * Your advertising strategy * And other external factors that can influence your products availability and pricing. Sales Promotion Strategies There are three types of sales promotion strategies: * A push strategy * A pull strategy or * A combination of the two A 'push' sales promotion strategy involves 'pushing' distributors
