More Mistakes To Avoid

Unfortunately too many businesses believe they can run an ad in a newspaper or magazine, and they'll instantly have plenty of customers. That kind of thinking has led to millions of dollars wasted on ineffective advertising every year. Check out the most common mistakes:

1. Thinking that advertising is the same as marketing.
2. Failing to target prospects via the right publications.
3. Creating a single ad instead of an intergrated marketing campaign.
4. Running an ad once or twice and expecting big returns.
5. Focusing on how and ad looks instead of how it performs.
6. Making vague claims about "quality" and "service".
7. Failing to focus on benefits.
