Does your business receive solicitation phone calls, emails, and visits from advertising sales (newspaper, radio, television, social media, Yelp, etc.)?
Do you get so overwhelmed that you either decide to not advertise at all or you end up in the wrong place for your business?
All marketing tactics are not for every business.  Today’s discussion will focus on how to avoid making costly marketing decisions that may not provide a return on your investment.
