Conventional Advertising is Dying!
Who killed it? The smart businesses who are using creative and innovative advertising methods to capture their audience’s attention.
More and more businesses are realizing that conventional methods, such as print and radio ads, aren't getting them the results they desire. This is for many reasons, such as the following:
- Ads run for a limited amount of time: meaning you pay for just the chance that your audience will briefly glance at your advertisement
- Broad audience range: you never actually capture your intended audience because it is advertised to such a large audience
- They aren’t interactive: meaning that your customer is left to make a decision or action without any other influence
- Return on investment is hard to track: which means you could be wasting your whole budget on advertising that doesn't draw in any customers
Above all, conventional advertising is becoming more and more expensive. Check out how much businesses are spending for conventional advertising:
- Yellow Pages: $250-10,000+
- Billboard Ads: $800-$30,000+ (per month)
- Magazine Ads (local/national): $500-$20,000+
- Newspaper Ads (major/neighborhood): $200-$20,000+ (per week)
- Direct Mail: $1,500-$50,000+
- Radio Ads: $100-$1,000+
