(And How And Why You Definitely Should Too!)
Ever notice just how much money and effort, far too many profit seeking entrepreneurs, invest, (more like) waste, on dismally performing, traditional advertising campaigns?
And just for ultimate clarification here. By traditional advertising campaigns and or promotions.
This is referring to, the outrageously expensive, non goal orientated ad campaigns you so often see, the deep pocketed, fortune 100- 500 type outfits, constantly running all over the place.
Case in point, you’ll see local billboards, (which aren’t exactly cheap BTW), throughout your city/town, with some extremely large, corporate type logo splashed on it.
And that’s pretty much it. Huh? Exactly. With absolutely no market tested “Call To Action” (CTA) to be found anywhere.Big freaking mistake!
Entrepreneur, (please!!) do not go there. And if this is the type of completely wasteful advertising and or promotional strategies you’re currently attempting. Stop doing so immediately!(Before your business goes completely bankrupt!)
Because, (guess what?) There are far more proven and effective ways, for you to invest your extremely hard earned marketing dollars…
