    In order to boost the sales nowadays, business organizations incorporate various kinds of promotional activities coaxing public to buy their products. Some of the strategy are Clearance sales, free samples, advertisement and endorsements. The ensuing paragraphs will elaborate the different ideas and indicate the most effective method.
    To begin with the most common way considered to increase the sale of any product is to reduce the cost. Recently the high fashion brands hold’s stock clearance sales twice a year dropping the price up to 70 to 80%. This discount works as a spur to the customer alluring them to buy more than what they would buy on a normal day. For example, Gucci as we all know is a high-end brand and it will cost a fortune to buy its products, but, if the brand conducts a stock clearance sale, even a middle-class person would desire to buy consequently, increasing the sales of the brand. Another way to burgeon the sale is through giving away free samples, everyone loves free gifts and if the consumers like the product then they will return for more.
    Tv commercials and endorsements are also believed to leave a never-ending impact on people. Advertisement are directed in such manners that it matches with the wave length of the customers. Endorsement by celebrities is yet another excellent way to promote. Public admires the celebrities and want to be like them so when a movie star promises that exclusive product will help to lose weight, the admirer will trust them blindly. Therefore, endorsement seems to be the most effective way.
    To conclude, several different tactics are used by business firm to hike the sales like promotional activities, free gifts and commercials but the most effective among them is endorsement by a celebrity because consumer tend to connect with them and as they are regarded as an idol people will purchase the goods which is promoted by the famous personality.

      ‘Some of the strategy are’ strategies not strategy. ‘fashion brands hold’s stock’ it should hold not hold’s. ‘Advertisement are directed’ advertisements. ‘that it matches with’ that these match with. In the second last paragraph you indicated at the last that it is the most effective way, but better approach would have been to indicate at the beginning of the paragraph. ‘several different tactics’ several and different should not used together as it is redundant. ‘consumer tend to connect’ consumer tends to not tend to. ‘as an idol people’ not idol people but only idol.
