Magazine Promotion: Bottega Offers Free Ice Bucket

One of the reasons this campaign is successful is due to the gift offered. Gifts are a great way to promote the product via all mediums including magazines.  By offering a transparent jeroboam ice bucket that has a retail value of HK$295, it is the perfect complimentary gift for Prosecco that will encourage consumers into ordering/purchasing the product.

If the gift was not suitable for the product being sold, the chances of  it incentivising consumers purchasing behaviour into the buying stage is low. Particularly in this case due to the premium price of the product, the gift also need to reflect this in terms of high value and a quality ice bucket certainly does this.

Advertising inside a magazine is a great way to advertise promotions, due to the large audience it attracts and their scope. As mentioned an effective Magazine promotion can add plenty of benefits to a company position.
