How's your ad campaign working out for you?

Return on Investment (ROI) is frequently the buzzword among accountants and business leaders. In other words, for every dollar I put into a project, improvement, or advertising campaign, I want to know how many dollars will I get back. When times are tough, it becomes even more important to get the most "bang for the buck". Your advertising campaign is no different. And, for some businesses, a series of great print, radio, or television spots might provide just the right formula. For others, the costs of this type of advertising media may be more than any benefit.

Looking for a way to cut back on advertising costs?

A Website may be one of the most cost effective ways to go. Your costs for an entire year start off as low as $699 for a new site design, hosting, and domain name registration.

However, remember that a major site redesign may not be necessary every year. This means your yearly costs to maintain your site could be as low as $160 per year. Compare that to a classified advertisement in a local newspaper; it's a whopping $2317 for a year! Radio? Somewhere around $170 per spot. If you ran regular radio ads all year, say five per week, that's $44,200 each year!

So, will these forms of advertising bring in enough business to at least cover their cost? Well, that depends on your business and how many people the ad can reach. Still, how many people might your Website reach when it operates 24 hours per day, 365 days per year?

So, you need to cut back on spending...

Then consider your new Website as a cost effective means to advertising, establishing brand, and building your client network.

  • Rounded Corners Using Only CSS!
    Nearly all of the new browsers now support rounded corners using CSS (cascading style sheets).

Learn how to apply this effective and efficient feature to your own pages.
