The deal-in will, of course, achieve greater long-term benefits for the success of the product if it is accompanied by a deal-out or consumer promotion, designed to help the shopkeeper to sell quickly these additional stocks which he has acquired on good terms.

(1) The use of coupons.
(2) The use of self-liquidating offers.
(3) The supply of bargain packs.
(4) The provision of samples.
(5) The offer of 'give-aways'.
