A business with no advertising is a sign of no business
Many years ago a friend of mine owned and operated a franchised sign company. His memory hook, or tag line, was a “A business without a sign, is a sign of no business.” That statement is so true, it even transcends all forms of advertising
Ask any successful business owner, they’ll tell all about the value, and importance, of advertising. Businesses that don’t advertise are totally invisible to their potential customer.
Bottom line -if you’re in business, advertise!

Appreciate ya Becky!
Have you ever had the same reaction to an ad, whether in print, radio or television, that Dagwood had? If you watched television during the Super Bowl in recent years, I’ll bet you have. One of my favorites of all time were the series of ads for an Internet company called Outpost.com. Remember them? Probably not. Ever been to their Web site? Nah. But what great commercials!
You remember…the well-dressed older gentleman speaking to the camera in a soft voice while seated in a large chair next to a cozy fireplace. He was talking to us about a new kind of company Read the rest of this entry »
Received this email from one of my long time advertisers, Juan Rivera, President of Renaissance Development Group, Inc. in Pascagoula, MS. The show will air Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:00 PM. Be sure to visit their website at http://www.rdginc.net/ for more about their company.
Renaissance Development Group, Inc. would like to take this opportunity to share that we have been presented with the good fortune of being offered a TV Show. We have decided to call it “Remodeling Now”. We are very excited at this fantastic opportunity. The show will obviously be geared to remodeling, historical restorations but will delve into new construction and some commercial ventures. We are hoping that this program will be an avenue to bring awareness to our industry in a good light. There has been so many “crooks” since hurricane Katrina. Our company has worked hard to achieve and maintain a great reputation. It is with this same dedication that we will bring to our “Remodeling Now” show.
We look forward to helping bring awareness to several non-profits, i.e. Biloxi Habitat, Salvation Army and various others. It is with this awareness that Tawny and I are also going to be opening our own non-profit organization here in Pascagoula, MS. The name if it will be “The Renaissance Foundation”. These are challenging times but we feel the ever present need to help and assist those in need with what means we can.
I want to thank all who have supported us and our business. We look forward to a continued working relationship.
Tawny & Juan

Your ability to sustain a long-term advertising program shows customers that you’re a successful, reliable brand.
I recently purchased a new digital TV. Normally, Circuit City would have been on my list as one store in which to shop, but the struggles the company was facing (followed by its decision to declare bankruptcy) made me nervous. Read the rest of this entry »

So you’ve got a dynamic product. You’ve determined that there’s a definite need (or want) for it. And you know what you want to say in your advertising copy. Congratulations! (You’re way ahead of most of us!) But assuming you DO eventually get to that point … Read the rest of this entry »
