Historically we have all grown up with certain brands and images that evoke, in some cases, nostalgia. We can all image dreamy days on a summer beach reaching for a cold drink from our COKE Cooler. It was red and had a white bottle cap on it. Tony the Tiger served breakfast to many of us. Hertz was gliding our parents into the driver’s seat of a brand new rental car.
These were big companies with big advertising budgets. We knew their names, recognized their images and we responded accordingly. But not every business is able to make it on Image Advertising.
Image Advertising and Name Recognition Do Not Make Telephones Ring!
There is a definite gap between how the large companies address their market and how most businesses must address theirs. It is vitally important therefore to understand this delta and be able to accommodate and address it.
Given the fact that not every individual contemplating self employment can benefit from a University or College degree in marketing, how do successful operations find their way to the methods that work. If you don’t have the budget to afford to advertise like a Coke, Pepsi or Home Depot how to you attract that new prospect.
The best way is to make your advertising dollar accountable to you. By this I really mean, regardless of whatever method you choose to use, every dollar spent must have a measurable return so you can validate its success.
Let me say that again…
Every Dollar Spent Must Have A Measurable Return So You Can Validate Its Success
The best way for small to medium sized businesses to accomplish this is through a technique known as Direct Response Marketing.
