CPG Companies Lending a Hand to Improve Trade Promotions

Trade Promotions are essential for a brand’s success in attracting new customers, introducing new products and ensuring ongoing shopper loyalty, so it’s no surprise it has grown to become the second largest line item in most CPG marketing budgets. With companies increasing their Trade Promotion efforts, including promotional end-caps and specials, some retailers are asking for assistance. CPG companies are now creating retail teams that focus their efforts on supporting the retailer and assisting with promotion optimization (placement, displays, scheduling, inventory).
