There’s more to advertising than meets the eye. It can provide an array of benefits to your brand and business. Take a look!
Why Should I Advertise?
1. You Must Advertise to Reach New Customers
The market changes constantly. New families moving into the area mean new potential customers for you – or for or for your competition. Plus, customers’ income levels are constantly changing, which means changes in lifestyles, needs, and buying habits.
2. You Must Advertise Consistently
Shoppers don’t have the same store and brand loyalty they once had. The National Retail Merchants Association says “mobility and non-loyalty are rampant. Stores must promote to get former customers to return and to attract new ones.”
3. You Must Advertise to Influence Customers Throughout the Buying Cycle
People often go from store to store comparing prices, quality, and service. Advertising must reach them consistently through the entire decision-making process. Your name should always be fresh in their minds.
4. You Must Advertise Since it Pays Off Over a Longer Period
Your advertising today is selling customers whose buying decision may be weeks away. Advertising gives you a long-term advantage over competitors who cut back or cancel advertising.
5. You must advertise to generate more store traffic
Continuous store traffic is the first step toward sales increases and expanding your base of shoppers. For every 100 items shoppers plan to buy, they make at least 30 unanticipated “in-store” purchases.
6. You must advertise to make more sales
Advertising works! Businesses that succeed are almost always strong, steady advertisers. Look around – you’ll find the most aggressive and consistent advertisers are almost always the most successful.
7. You Must Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate
As long as you’re open for business, you’ve got overhead to meet and new people to reach. Advertising will generate customers now and in the future. Your doors are open even on the slowest of days.
