The advertising industry is composed of a huge number of players targeting different segments by offering different advertising media and tools. There are basically four types of advertising: above the line advertising, below the line advertising, traditional advertising and non-traditional advertising.

Below the line sales promotions are short-term incentives, largely aimed at consumers. With the increasing pressure on the marketing team to achieve communication objectives more efficiently in a limited budget, there has been a need to find out more effective and cost efficient ways to communicate with the target markets. This has led to a shift from the regular media based advertising. In other words, below-the-line sales promotion is an immediate or delayed incentive to purchase, expressed in cash or in kind, and having only a short term or temporary duration. Below the line advertising in the Philippines started in the hotel industries. It is introduced by the OTAs’ and BTL Advertising took off after giving discounts and creating deals to hotel accommodations and other tour packages.
