What The Auto Industry Can Teach Maine Small Business Owners

Posted by Larry Julius on Wed, Oct 31, 2018 @ 11:33 AM

One of the "3 Rs" of successful advertising is Recall. To be effective, a potential customer must be able to recall a business or product when it comes time to make a purchase. No recall equals no sale.

A recent study conducted by Nielsen shows how advertising recall affects the auto industry. This study can provide important insights to any Maine small business owner who sells expensive goods or services. The key premises provided by Nielsen will also lead to the conclusion that advertising on Portland radio is the most effective way to produce the recall necessary to drive sales.
