Investopedia explains 'Promotional Budget'


Advertising and promotion of a business is a cost which most businesses have a tough time predicting, which is why a percentage method might be used. If new product lines are set to release in the near future, the budget could be increased. High promotional budgets cut into profits in the period of use and are intended to increase sales or awareness in the future.
