Describe the objective of the promotion.
In Mexico people only read half a book per year. However, people who read are very fond of Gandhi Bookstores, this is why we made a promo thinking of them. Take 2 books and pay only for one.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
We made a side by side print to communicate the promo to our clients. We wrote a text with 2 different forms of punctuation. Each text told a different story. That's how we made the point: take 2 stories at the price of 1.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
People who like to read found this piece really entertaining. For them, it was a relevant way to make a promo.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The promo was limited to a certain quantity of books, which sold out 1 week before our deadline.
