Think of your advertising budget as a pitcher of water and the media you use as glasses.

To get customers to “take action” from your advertising investment, you must carry them through the stages of communication: unawareness, awareness, comprehension, conviction, action, and non-action.

By filling one glass, you have successfully completed these stages through that medium. Only then should you add another.

How many glasses are you trying to fill?

Is it a media-mix of a media mess? Is it working? Are you filling each glass (media) before you add another one?

Local Business Case Studies

Junge’s Flooring started working with Minnesota 97.5 and Deb Muench because they were ready for more growth than what word of mouth could bring them. Deb taught them how to grow their business through consistent marketing with messaging that states who they are as a company and why buy from them. They have followed this strategy and Deb continues to write their campaigns to keep the listeners engaged in their products and services. Over the last 3 years they have more than doubled their business and 97.5FM is their primary source of marketing. They love 97.5FM and working with Deb because they make marketing Easy!
