Chapter Three: The Company

3.12 Media Expenditure

Since the company is still relatively new of being in business, the brand awareness level is low and this is due to lack of promotional advertising. The media expenditure is focused on small-scale advertising involving print media such as flyers and buntings, as well as promotion and news through their social media such as their official Facebook fanpage. The reason behind this is the fact the capacity of the consumers for Snogurt has not reached the targeted mark. The base of audience needs to grow before the company plan to react on nationwide advertising as it involves a large amount of money. Nationwide advertising would gain very little advantage as people could not get the product anywhere else except the outlets.
