In a new business it is really hard to tell where best to invest your advertising dollar.
My business was just one year old and in that first year I wasted thousands of dollars advertising in the wrong media. Newspapers and mailers just didn't get it done - very poor response with one and none on the other. TV is probably the best, but who can afford to spend the 5 grand to get started?
Then, while sitting in a medical office, I happened to pick up this publication. It seemed like it might be worth a try, so I called for prices. At first I thought it was just a bit high, but looking back on what I had spent, I decided to try the shortest term that was offered to advertise. By the second month, because the response was so good, I signed on for the whole year and have stayed on ever since.
Folks come in to my store and say "That is the magazine where I read of your store. Glad it was in there. We were looking for something different to do."
Finally! Some advertising that actually works. Thanks Barb and the whole team at Connecticut Kids & Family!
