Announcement: Daysteps Note from Bobette Kyle

Hello everyone. As some of you know, for the past two years I have been working as co-owner of Daysteps LLC, a company that developed and marketed the Daysteps Planner for 2010. Unfortunately, the dynamics of that four-person partnership made dissolving the company our best option. There is, however, good news. Cecilia, Laura, and I, [...]

Are Big Super Bowl Ad Spends Logical?

According to CBS, in 2010 a 30-second Super Bowl ad spot cost $2.5-$3.0 million. To those of us whose sales are far lower, this seems wildly excessive. Why would companies continue to set aside mega-budgets for their commercials to be seen on Super Sunday? There is much exposure on game day, of course. But is [...]

Super Bowl 2010 Commercials: Consumer Goods, Orgs

I’m putting together a master list of Super Bowl XLVI ads, along with links to each advertiser’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Here’s what I have so far in the categories of consumer goods (non beverage…beer and soda has its own category…more to come) and league / government commercials.

The tourism, restaurant, souvenir, and entertainment industries (to name a few) all benefit. Your small business (or any other size, for that [...]

As the Internet becomes a part of daily living for more and more people so does making purchases–and using their credit cards–online. Consequently, if you marketing products or services from a Website, it is increasingly critical that you accept credit cards from that Website as well. If you have researched ecommerce at all, you realize [...]

The importance of prequalified Website visitors.

It’s quite entertaining to track the number of Website visitors and celebrate increases in traffic. While number of visits and page views are important, they aren’t the end objectives. Ultimately, you want those visitors to answer your call to action, whether that be purchase, subscribe, download, or contact you. For this reason, it’s critical to [...]

Pricing Discounts and Profit

As small business owners, managers, and marketers one of the issues we must confront each holiday season is whether or not to give price discounts as part of your planned marketing programs.
