What Has Stopped You From Advertising or Promoting in the Past?

We get it, I was Spontaneous Once, It Didn’t go as planned.

“I’m Scared: I don’t know what to do because I don’t really understand all the options and I don't know what I need.”  We understand.  Trying something new is scary. But remember, we are here to help and give you affordable options.  Also, we live right here in Michigan-not in a foreign country.

“Can’t I do all of this myself?”  If you have the time, knowledge, diverse audience and far-reaching capabilities, you can. But is it the best use of your time and are you currently reaching a new audience?

“Won't it be expensive?”  We offer a variety of super affordable advertising options that can be paid with PayPal's Pay Later option.  And with Facebook Advertising, you can spend as little or as much as you like per campaign! Our social media and business packages reach a targeted audience so won't be throwing your money in the wind.

“My business is doing ok; do I really need to advertise?”  Let’s reach higher than just “ok!” We always see ads for McDonald’s, Flo at Progressive and Kohl’s because they want to be a household name when we are deciding on fast food, insurance or clothing purchases.

And the biggest fear of all:

“How do I know this will work? What if it’s a big waste of money?”  From a business standpoint, we will provide the metrics to tell you how many people visited your site so there isn’t any guess work.
