Advertising On Social Media
If you use social media to advertise your business, keep this in mind. “Likes are not made on Facebook. They are born from great experiences you create for users offline.” It’s difficult to say who first uttered that quote, but it’s a great reminder that social media like Facebook can only be a residual part of your relationship with consumers. The consumer needs to be familiar with your company, your product or your service to make the decision to try you out. Then, when the customer pays you a visit, be certain that their experience with you is top-notch. Because there’s another quote to keep in mind – “you never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Radio advertising to a mass audience combined with display advertising on mymotherlode.com is the fastest and best way to invite familiarity because no one reaches more of your potential customers than Clarke Broadcasting.

Social media has changed the way the world communicates.
Most people use one form of social media or another. At Clarke Broadcasting, we use social media to keep in touch with our listeners on a personal basis. The issue with social media is that we expect it to deliver huge results when it’s used as an advertising vehicle. Take Facebook for example. Lots of businesses utilize it because it’s cheap. But be careful – even Facebook acknowledges that only two percent of all posts are actually noted. We’re a massive society, and reaching only two percent of users, one at a time keeps your business from reaching enough consumers. That’s why a mass medium like radio works well in conjunction with your social media efforts. Ninety-three percent of Americans use radio on a weekly basis, so your customers are listening, and no one has more listeners than the three stations of Clarke Broadcasting.

What’s the very best way to make your brain remember something?
