How does a company know if it will be spending the right amount? If it spends too little, the effect will be negligible. If it spends too much, then some of the money could have been put to the better use. Advertising has a carry over effect that latest beyond the current period.

1.       Stage in the product life cycle: new products typically receive large advertising budgets to build awareness and to gain consumer trial. Establishes brands usually are supported with the lower advertising budgets as a ratio to sales.

2.       Market share and consumer base: high market share brands usually require less advertising expenditure as a percentage of sales to maintain their share. To build share by increasing market size requires larger advertising expenditures.
