Here it is 2015, and it has been a few years since I have written Super Bowl marketing lessons. Since the last writing in 2010, we’ve moved past an era when the Internet was a new frontier to a time when social media is so richly engrained in our culture it has always existed for […]

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.

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.
