Marketing for Increasing Exposure Tip #20: Paid Advertisement

Marketing for Increasing Exposure Tip #20: Paid Advertisement -

This month I am going to address a topic I haven’t faced head on until recently, paid advertisement. Starting out in this industry, ten years ago now, I didn’t want to spend money on ads. I looked into it and I was shocked at the prices: $1500 for 1/6th page? What?

But I get it. Depending on what company you are working with, paid ads can have a huge reach. I just chose to go the grassroots style since it is so available to us via numerous social media platforms.

Until recently when a financial advisor told me I did indeed have room in my budget for paid advertising. So I dove in and here are a few things I learned.

Top Tips when Considering Paid Advertisement:

  • Ask about the reach. Is this ad in print our online. Who is the target reader? Does it match who YOUR target audience is?
  • Is the design fee included in the cost of the ad price?
  • How will you track the success of this ad? Do you have access to your day by day sales to compare them to the release week of the ad?
  • Talk to a colleague about their experience with ad placements. Would they recommend the one you are considering?

Here are a few companies we have placed ads with recently and have seen a positive bump in our book sales as a result:

Reply and let me know if you have been happy with a recent paid advertisement experience.
