Internet Stalking

With the recent disclosures of Facebook’s data issues, people are more interested than ever to understand the ins and outs of ad targeting. So how does Facebook and other sites learn so much about us? One way is through our purchase behavior. You walk into CVS and buy Kleenex and Afrin. The next day you start seeing ads for [...]

Broadcast TV or Cable – Which Is Right For You?

Sight, Sound and Motion. Still the most powerful selling medium in advertising. But which is right for you? There are several factors to consider when making that choice. The first consideration is the geography your business draws from. Broadcast generally covers an entire market. If your business does not draw from a substantial portion of the market then you may have a lot of waste, and cable will be more cost-effective. If you only do business from a county or two, cable is wiser, in large part because of the way cable is zoned. The second consideration is your target [...]

Why Use An Advertising Agency

One of the great things about the computer age is that it makes us feel empowered. We can get information on just about anything and it seems like we can learn how to do everything on the internet.
