Do you know how to design and deploy
a marketing campaign?
Even if your ad budget is small you
should still plan and measure the results of
you advertising. This process is the key to
your ultimate success.
You see, there are two types of
advertising. The first is broadcast marketing.
This category includes TV and radio commercials.

it is more science than art. You can key every
ad you use and measure the real world results

media. Compare the results and go with the winning
Then write another ad and put it up against
your winning ad or control. If it beats your control
then use it instead. Keep refining and testing.
This is an ongoing process. Markets change
and ads loose their effectiveness after a while.
To have a top-notch marketing campaign you must be
constantly improving your ads.
