Getting the most bang for your buck when spending advertising dollars is a major difference maker. We’ve all spent money on an advertising campaign where you just weren’t 100% certain that it was even deployed, it was almost like you just burnt your money…Not a good feeling! Just because this bad experience happened to you doesn’t mean that you should just give up on marketing –it does however mean that it’s important to make smarter choices about where to spend your advertising dollars. Mistakes are inevitable and we all make them, the big problem is they can cost you valuable resources in terms of both time and money.
The good news today is that we already lost all of the money for you being guinea pigs in a sense, so you don’t have to go through what we did. With a bit of simple planning, avoiding the most common online marketing mistakes should be no problem.
