If you’ve ever advertised in mainstream media or thought about doing so, this post is for you! The other day, a colleague and I had a meeting with a potential client who is looking to get started with social media. We asked him how much he spent on advertising and I nearly fell off my chair when he told us! He said he was spending up to $15,000 per year on advertising with no discernible return on investment. $15,000!!!!!!
My name is Amanda, I am a 29 year old living and working on the Gold Coast. I live with my partner Steven our naughty little 2 year old Cattle Dog Sophie and our beautiful Cat Summer. I fell in love with Graphic Art in 1999 when I produced custom website graphics for clients while finishing High School but my Tertiary Education took me away from my web design and artwork in 2000.
Whether you make stuff or sell other people’s stuff, or have a service to offer, markets can be a great way to start networking with potential customers and clients. Many markets are trendy affairs these days but there are a lot of them and you need to do your research before deciding which market suits your product range or services the best.
