There is no doubt that advertising is one of the most important promotional tool. We will use various advertising mediums in order to induce our customers to purchase our products. So for advertising purpose we will be focusing on mediums like:
1. Broadcast Media: It will consists of Television ads (TVC) mostly. We will be using slice of life strategy for our TVC. In our TVC we will be showing that sometimes due to high prices some people/households cannot buy their dream furniture’s or desired one’s and sometimes even if they buy by paying high prices that cannot ensure durability so IKEA Bangladesh will work as a solution to the problem by providing excellent quality products and obviously excellent designed products at an affordable price which will bring happiness for those people. We will also advertise through radio like radio foorti, radio amar etc.
2. Print Media: For print media we will use be advertising through leaflets. Lifestyle magazines, business magazines and newspaper ads. We will focus on informative ads here.
