“Simplifying Advertising Strategy”

How to be effective in our complicated, highly fractionalized media world



Rutland Walker

Everywhere you turn there’s advertising…We are bombarded with ads on Facebook, Google, TV, Radio, Billboards, Magazines, bus wraps, yard signs, etc.   To most of us, it is an annoyance…an inconvenience that we know we have to deal with because it pays for some of the things we like.  


But for those doing the advertising behind those messages, it’s very often life or death.  If you own your own business, investing in advertising is the difference between things like investing in your retirement fund, college savings accounts, or whatever it may be and doubling down on your business.  And it is really hard to know what works.  “Should I be doing Facebook, should it be billboards, TV, radio? What is the best return for my money in order to grow my business.”   

Join us as we demystify advertising in 2014, and give you a few simple takeaways that we will increase the effectiveness of your advertising no matter what you do.
