Promotion is everything that is done to make your product and business known to your target consumer markets. Promotion goes beyond just advertising. Promotion must create and convey a consistent image across all promotional activities and communication channels. Consumers make decisions and develop perceptions using label claims. Make sure you are legally allowed to use any certification logos or make product claims on your packaging labels and marketing materials before using them.
