Episode 96:  Pros and Cons of Paid Advertising

Show Notes and Related Links 

We often only consider the free marketing options like social media, blogging, podcasting and live streaming. 

And we may not give the paid options the attention it deserves - because it takes money out of the budget. 

The problem with that is you may be missing out on some profitable opportunities. But how do you know? Try it.


If you're trying to achieve brand awareness, introduce a new product, share a one-time offer or year-end special, if the money is in your budget you might be surprised at the results you achieve from paid advertising. 

Either way, I encourage you to listen to this episode so you have the information needed to make the best decision for you, your business and business goals. 

I review 3 pros and 3 cons of paid advertising that you won't want to miss. Listen and leave a comment with what resonated with you most.
