  • What this chart from Borrell shows is the newspaper ad spending trend vs. the digital ad spending trend. And for as much as print has declined, that decline is expected to flatten over the next few years- its still a very viable product that generates results. This year, Borrell projects that digital ad spend will outpace newspaper spend and hence the push for everyone to invest in all the different options and platforms.

  • You are the big dog in your market. (Clifford)

  • And…your brand is distinctive in the market. They would choose you over competition over and over again
  • You’ve consistently fed them new customers/leads, right? This is why they come back to you for their advertising needs, if you didn’t work, they wouldn’t work with you.

  • Can you sell it like traditional advertising? Can you build it in house? Building it: Need experienced digital talent Must invest to build to scale Must be ready to adapt to change Investment to build team: $200,000 - $5 million

  • What is Social Media? I’d like to reset your thinking on “what is Social Media” Social Media is a vehicle for content. Whether it’s an update shared by you or me, or a photo, video or link, we’re all there to produce and interact with content. Hopefully, your customers will cast their content on the waters and it will come back to them multiplied.

  • Many SMBs join social media with the objective of acquiring new customers. In this BIAKelsey survey, ~42% of respondents said this was their primary purpose. Many of those same SMBs end up feeling dejected after spending money to market themselves on social media without seeing a return by way of leads. Remember that social media is a place to engage with customers and potential customers and build brand awareness. When done right, social media can be a great avenue for new leads, but the primary objective should always be building brand awareness (or else you may end up with an unhappy customer). Look for a meme to insert inbetween here… something about brand ambassadors or engagement (see: blog post in drafts)
