Exhibit 27.14 illustrates the impact that special displays can have on brand and category sales. In this example permanent displays were set up at a retail chain for a category that comprised primarily of two brands D and E.
The impact of displays, co-op advertising and seasonal effects is usually presented as sales lift (see Exhibit 27.15), the percentage increase in sales volume due to the incidence of the marketing effort.
The brands D and E, shown in Exhibit 27.14, experienced sales lift of 70% and 23% respectively. As is evident from the trends lines in the exhibit, the displays helped to reverse the decline in category sales at the retail chain.
