Section 3
Support slides for sales presentations
About these slides
The following slides provide general
supporting arguments to assist sales
teams when building client-specific
presentations.
The purpose is to open discussion, to
demonstrate a basic understanding of
factors that drive supermarket sales, and
to show how newspaper media can help
to influence the sales process.
These slides are intended to be used in
a presentation after recapping the
brief, and before presenting analysis
and recommendations tailored to the
specific client.
Needless to say, they can and be should
be adapted to suit your particular
presentation requirements.

Unprecedented competition in supermarkets
Woolworths and Coles still
dominate, but discounters
are making gains.
Good news for consumers.
But tough for retailers.
“The competitive landscape
is changing…
While the sector has been dominated
by the big two [Woolworths and
Coles], Aldi and Costco are creeping in.
Metcash has been hit the hardest, but
Coles and Woolworths are feeling it.”

TV and newspapers complement each other
TV builds awareness and brand
linkage, priming viewers.
Newspapers reinforce and
remind to prompt retail action.
Newspaper ads provide high tactical flexibility
Conventional product and price ads…
…and to promote competitions,
promotions, and special offers
Client specific analysis & recommendations
This is the point to bridge to a client specific discussion.
Each presentation will need to be individually tailored to suit the client and their
objectives, but the logical flow from here is to move on to
• Analyses that address the client’s specific situation, challenges and opportunities.
• Solutions using your inventory, giving clear reasons why they are appropriate to the
client’s specific needs, and suggestions on how they can be used most effectively.
