The authors note that advertising can be considered as information provided as a gift for potential customers. It supports production expansion and stimulates consumer spending. The concept of gift in advertising is defined as the non-market tool which is not based on the market price, implemented in the framework of a company’s competitive strategy. New industrialization transforms all sectors of the economy. A human is replaced by a robot in many activities.

The article aims to determine the ways how companies can use promotion robots and the effect of their use in advertising. The authors apply the case study method based on the secondary data analysis. The paper focuses on promotion robots, manufactured by Promobot, a company located in the Perm Krai of Russia. It is concluded that the use of promotion robots in advertising has several advantages: attracting the visitors’ attention, automating the promotion activities, and increasing consumer loyalty. It is estimated that the use of promotion robots contributes to an increase in sales ranging from twenty percent to several times.
