  • ADVERTISING ESTABLISHES CONTACT
    Advertising is a preferred method for introducing people to products and services. Advertising cultivates new prospects. Advertising builds awareness. Before exposure to advertising only one in five buyers is aware of a company and/or its products. Six out of ten suppliers claim that maintaining or increasing awareness is a marketing objective. Buyers are always more aware of the most aggressively marketed products. A significant number of sales are lost because the consumer simply did not have enough knowledge of the product. As awareness increases, buyers are more likely to consider purchasing that specific product.
