The Top 4 Trades from December were:

Radio Advertising

As you know, advertising is extremely important, especially now. Have you considered radio advertising? Well, you should. Even though radio advertising costs can range from $200 - $5,000 (cash mind you) a week depending on your location, it however, on average, sees that per every $1 spent in radio advertising, advertisers see $10 in sales. So if you invest that amount using your trade, you will not only be saving cash but bringing MORE cash in! Contact one of our Media Specialists today to see what radio opportunities are available in your area!

Not ready for radio advertising? Try Direct Mail advertising! Its been found that direct mail recipients purchase 28% more items and spend 28% more money than people who don’t get that same piece of direct mail. It’s also shown that direct mail offers a 29% return on investment. Not to mention, direct mail has a quicker production turn around time than radio advertising. So if you want a quicker advertising method, try direct mail! Contact one of our Media Specialists to get started!
