Not having the right level of commitment and focus. Many business owners think they need to do a little of everything instead of doing one thing well. It’s been said, “I throw my advertising dollars against the wall and hope some of it sticks.” Almost any business can get all the customers they need by simply attacking and dominating the right radio station.
Throwing in the towel before the advertising can work. Advertising is like trying to get in shape. Getting started is the hardest part, and the rewards for your time and effort are not always readily apparent. However, with a healthy dose of commitment and focus to your plan, you will eventually enjoy the results. Successful advertising is no different.
"We started cleaning the stations, and we heard all the commercials, and we thought that would be a great fit for us too, so we ended up doing commercials. Immediately, our profit went up. We were booked like crazy. Some of our concerns were the cost, but the benefits way outweigh the cost. If you're considering advertising with a radio station, definitely do it. You can't go wrong."
