To grow your business or even stay in business YOU NEED TO ADVERTISE.
The purpose of advertising is get your unfair share of the market! If there are 10 offices selling Widgets and every office gets its fair share, each office will get 10% of the business. If the economy is bad, that 10% means your business makes less money. But if you get your unfair share of the market, say 15% or 20%, you could be making the same profit or even more. Plus, when business improves, you make an even bigger profit than before. Fact is, the businesses that are most successful don’t cut back when times are bad; many EVEN INCREASE ADVERTISING knowing that it’s the only way to keep profits coming in and growing when times improve.
Listen to the radio, watch cable, look in the paper. These businesses are the ones grabbing more than their fair share and are more likely to not only be in business in the future, but to have a bigger share of the market. That’s history of successful businesses. To make the most of your advertising, click HERE.
