How to SAVE Yourself from Spending too Much Money on Advertising!
How much money have you spent in Advertising, Promotion & Marketing? If you're like most people you've probably spent over $1000 or more. Many individuals and companies have spent $2000 to $50,000 in Advetising within a course of 1 Year... Ouch!
We all know that in order to succeed in business, we all have to do a lot of advertising right!... However why are we spending so much on advertising? "Could it be because others are doing the work for us?" I have a clear answer to the question, read on...
So why are we spending so much on advertising? After all we are in the 21st century and we need all the advertising that we can get to compete with our relentless competitors. But the reason why were're spending so much is because others are doing all the work for us and this means they can charge us as high as they feel...
Many of us are also always trying to compete with the large companies who are spending thousands and thousands of dollars on advertising. Small business need to stop doing this. Consider yourself, as a small business, luckier than the large businesses, because you don't have to worry about losing money when you do Advertising...
Why because the only advertising you should be doing is low cost advertising like Ezine Advertising, low cost opt-in email advertising, low cost pay per click search engines and low cost classified advertising. My favorite would have to be a Solo Ad in an Ezine or Online Newsletter, it has always given me excellent (ROI)Return On Investment.
Don't try to compete with the large companies with the fancy graphics and expensive advertising. Let them spend all they want in expensive advertising, many of them don't realize that it's extremely risky or if they do know that it's risky, they simply don't care.
Take Television Advertising and Banner Advertising for instance... Many companies have spend millions of dollars on it, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and many have failed.
Now don't get me wrong you can still make profits from other people handling your advertising, but please understand that if others are doing the work for you all the time, you wouldn't be taking full advantage of the Internet's Technology. Understand that you too have the same potential as others. So these are what you need to do that will be totally Critical to Your Success and save you from spending too much on advertising...
