Advertising Tips to Live by for Your Small Business

Advertising is a crucial part of marketing your small business. It helps customers learn about your product or service, and if done correctly, it should help customers recall that product or service when they need it. Here are some tips to keep in mind when constructing an ad campaign for your small business:

  1. Make it eye-catching

Drab, dull ads get lost in the shuffle. If you’re trying to sell your product or service, you’re most definitely competing with other companies like yours, so make sure your ad stands out! This doesn’t mean making it gaudy and flashy, it means making things creative, crisp, and professional while still marketing your brand to the fullest extent. Be innovative with your advertising.

  1. Don’t bombard the customer with text

Advertising is not about being content rich. The last thing a customer wants to do is sit and read advertisements all day. Stick to key phrases and important key words. Your customers will appreciate the pace of the information and the lack of small print!

  1. Make it to-the-point

Make sure your ad campaigns are in line with your company’s philosophy. If you’re a company that makes apple pies, placing implicit images or suggestions of an apple pie to attract customers will only confuse them. You don’t want to keep your customers guessing. Stick to the point and provide clear, concise information. An image of a warm, delicious apple pie would do the trick. Your customers will appreciate the straightforwardness and will be sure to remember your ad when in need of some apple pie. Staying true to your product or service is the best thing you can do for your company ad campaigns.


Follow these basic tips, and you will be well on your way to creating a successful advertising campaign for your small business!
