At first they released the poster on the left as it is plain and enticing to avoid any distraction from the name - the film is leaving enigma to the audience as to who is going to be in it.
This poster was also released first because it had similarities to the original Jurassic Park poster, this will further attract audiences, particularly the pre-existing fanbase of the franchise, as the logo is so iconic and noticeable.
Then closer to the release date (12th June 2015) the poster on the right was released as then those who weren't already convinced were persuaded to go as they see more about who and what is in the film.

Synergy through Cross Promotion
Was the product placement in Jurassic World too much?
“Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it’s all in there… Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote, ‘You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you wanna sell it.’ That to me is Jurassic World, that’s why I had all the product placement, that’s what it was.'
Colin Trevorrow claims that all the product placement was intentional:
The amount of product placements within the theme park allows the film to be more realistic - real theme parks would have to be sponsored by various companies to have enough funding to build.
Pre Production began on Jurassic World as early as 2001!!
