Your advertising results are inextricably linked to the message.
Two advertisers invest the same amount of money reaching the same target audience. One succeeds brilliantly and buys the mansion on the hilltop. The other fails miserably, receiving no response whatsoever. The difference between these two was in the message of their ads.
Ads that speak to the heart of the customer and touch a nerve are the ones that turn little companies into big companies. But few people know how to write such an ad. (We do and have been for years!) Most business owners approach advertising with the goal of merely getting their name out. But there is no evidence to suggest this will help you in the slightest.
