Sales Training Tips

Successful Sales Budgeting

Businesses have many ways to calculate their advertising budget. Advertising budgets are most often based on any or all of the following:

  • Industry averages
  • Last year’s advertising budget
  • Competitor’s advertising budget
  • Previous advertising budget
  • Percentage of sales minus overhead
  • Friends or relatives’ recommendations

All of the above methods are ineffective for realistically planning a long-term advertising budget. Furthermore, they leave out essential marketing tools, such as sales projections, market analysis, pricing, and product changes.

A successful formula for establishing an advertising budget is to float a percent of sales based on profit margin. This formula is very simple and effective. The higher the profit margins, the higher percent of the sales can be spent on advertising.

The formula has two steps:

1. Determine sales projections for the next six months.

2. Determine the average Gross Margin of Profit (GMP)
