What Mass Media Is Best For Your Advertisement?

Business owners are all trying to do one thing, get customers. In a world full of advertisement it’s difficult to know which media outlet to use in order to advertise to potential clients. To help make this easier I’d like to cover what exactly mass media is and the different outlets you can choose from.

What IS mass media? By definition, it includes any means of communication which reaches large amounts of people. That’s a fairly broad term which can make it all the more difficult to choose a method on which to advertise. This term was coined back in the day when radio and television were these crazy new inventions, but now that the World Wide Web exists, the options are seemingly endless.

Let’s start with the basics.

Publishing Media is the “original” form of mass media, in other words PRINT. This includes newspapers, magazines and books. Most are probably thinking “books?”. Although they may not be a popular form of advertising, they do help to get messages out to the masses so in this case they are considered a form of mass media. Printed newspapers are dwindling in popularity but still a violable option for advertising, especially to older generations

Creating More Sales Traffic That Sticks

Advertising is expensive and, next to creating your product, probably the most critical and expensive investment for developing and growing a successful business.

You May Have To Sacrifice Equity

Some businesses see advertising as their way to growth but I know this is often a gross oversimplification. And the reason is, advertising done wrong can be the biggest waste of money which can often leave the company without working capital.

It’s quite simple – the best ideas mean nothing without connecting with the marketplace. In fact it’s so critical to make this connection, that Steve jobs gave 30% of Apple to a venture capitalist who invested less than $100,000 to support their initial marketing campaign. Without Steve’s understanding that advertising has to be done right and risking 30% of his company to get the right individual’s know-how, we probably wouldn’t have Apple today, despite the brilliance of their products.

The lesson is brutal in its simplicity.

Understand your marketplace and the need for the right advertising campaign to connect to with it and then fund it – almost at any cost. If you can’t fund the proper advertising campaign then you need to find the funds, which may well mean dilute your shareholding.
