SM Advertising & Branding Whether your business is a large industrial firm or a One Person Army (OPA), the principles of growing your business and increasing your revenue are the same. Marketing/Sales 101 When you want to build your business revenue, you need to focus on four steps: 1. Lead Capture/List Building Without a group of prospects that can be converted to clients, there is no business revenue and no revenue growth. 2. Top-of-Mind Awareness If your prospects are not aware of you or your company, then it would be pure chance that they would ever become clients of yours. 3. Relationship Building Every salesperson who has ever had success will tell you that the quality and quantity of your sales depend on your ability to create positive relationships. 4. Creating the Sale Once the relationship is built, the prospect will want to know three things: a. The benefits or value of doing business with you b. The features and advantages of your product or service over your competitors c. And the terms of buying this product and doing business with you Once they have decided to make the purchase, you need to have a method of closing the sale and acknowledging the purchase. This could be as simple as a handshake or verbal confirmation, clicking a “yes” link or signing a contract/ agreement. Smart Media offers a unique, leading edge, Advertising and Branding System (SMABS), that dynamically positions you and your brand as no other system 22

Although it is highly unlikely that you could achieve Top- direct sales or affiliate business, or if you are a small of-Mind Awareness with most people in just 20 minutes, business owner or a corporate executive, TOMA is your let’s see what research bears out in this example. path to success. Top-of-Mind means that when someone thinks about a product or service that you sell, your name comes to mind first. Whether you distribute a health I f you ran your advertising over the next 30 days (trying to get at least the 20 minutes), what does research indicate about the length of time each person spends related product, an online digital product or manufacture widgets, if your audience does not think of you first, you exposed to your brand? stand no chance to convert them from a shopper to a client (or member).

  25. 25. Smart Media Working to Make the World a Better Place The Worth of 20 Minutes 2nd Quarter, 2012, Volume of Traditional Advertising Television 20 - 30 second tv ads - 1200 seconds - 20 minutes in a local medium market of 100,000 people, not necessarily targeted and not including the thousands of dollars needed in production costs, could easily be $1,000 per ad or a total of $40,000. Radio 20 - 30 second radio ads - 600 seconds - 20 minutes in a group of local stations will typically run as much as $16,000. Newspaper Assuming that a newspaper reader spends a full 5 minutes per page and assuming that you are advertising in a fairly well read newspaper in California - 4 days at $400/column inch for a 4 x 4 inch ad would cost $3200 per ad or $12,800 over 4 days. Billboards Let’s say you purchase an ad on a large billboard. Assuming the average motorist has about 5 seconds to notice and absorb some of your content and assuming this motorist passes the same billboard 4 times per day, they would get about 20 seconds of exposure each day, which would take about 60 days to get a full 20 minutes of impression. Depending on location, large billboards can range as high as $30,000 per ad for a 4 week run. We assumed that you get a bargain and get 60 days for $10,000. Time Spent on Internet As reported in February of 2012 by ComScore, the heaviest internet users in Europe come from the UK. U.S. Arbitron reported in April of 2012 that moderate Internet users (but they were also either heavy TV or radio users) were on the Internet 2 hours and 43 minutes each day - India, TNN, Desi netizens spend over 8 hours a day online: Survey March 2012.

  26. 26. Smart Media Working to Make the World a Better Place 2nd Quarter, 2012, Volume 1 Are these four statements true about you? I do not earn enough income to be financially secure. I have not accumulated enough money to be financially secure. I am not accumulating enough money to be financially secure. I do not have enough passive cash-flow to be financially secure. And have you given yourself (and your family) any of the following reasons for your failure to achieve financial security? I don’t have the time. My boss won’t pay me enough. I don’t have the knowledge or education. I don’t have the skills. Nobody wants to hire me. (I’m not marketable, too young, too old, too short, etc) I can’t see how I could do it other than win the lottery. I don’t have wealthy relatives who will leave me an inheritance. But, if you were really honest wouldn’t the real reasons be more like... I’m unwilling to try. I’m unwilling to approach my personal and professional network. I’m unwilling to work hard. I tried and gave up after setbacks. I’m unwilling to change my beliefs about the way money is accumulated. Why We Need a Plan “B” We value financial security! For most of us this is very important and yet not achieved. We do not have enough financial security to ensure the lifestyle and Quality of Life that we want now and into the foreseeable future. Basically, our governments, educational institutions and other such organisations have conditioned us to work towards only one source of income, namely “the job”. There is nothing wrong with this, however, it is limited income and it engenders a limited thinking mentality. We need to actively look at creating other or additional sources of income that will provide options and encourage unlimited thinking and an unlimited belief in what can be done in life. What are the steps you could take today to start moving towards financial security? a. Would you be willing to become a free member of HomePage Pays? b. Would you be willing to join Smart Media as a paid member? c. Would you be willing to give away free HPP memberships to your personal and social network? d. Would you be willing to put in 4 hours/week on your own Smart Media business?page If you answered “yes” to the above and act now, you have taken a huge step towards being financially secure. 26
