Be everywhere

The advantages of repeat advertising

• be easy to find
potential clients have the confidence that they will find you when they need you, by picking up or clicking on any issue of Contactus Ealing

• beat the competition
stay at the forefront of clients’ minds so that when they need you they come to you first, not your competitor

• get more exposure
marketing experts say a client may need to be exposed to your business between 7 and 77 times before they even notice your business, far less decide to become a customer – so use Contactus to tick off some of that 7/77

• impress your clients
show customers that you’re not a one-off, that you are a serious business, serious about advertising, and you spend your money on your business instead of just feeding off of free social media

• reach offline audiences
increase your chances of reaching the large number of potential clients who aren’t on social media

• share your story
get someone else (i.e. me) to say how good you are: note that with each repeat advert, the accompanying free story changes, so customers find out more about you

• help customers remember you
invest in your business in a way that pays off – new customers will be more likely to remember they found you in Contactus rather than via “your website”

• be part of the community
by advertising repeatedly in Contactus, you are showing your commitment to supporting local business and the shop local theme – this can only have a positive impact your clients as well as other small and local businesses

• pay less for ads
repeat advertisers get a 10% discount when booking and paying for four ads at once in advance

• get even more exposure
access ‘soft’ benefits like appearing on the magazine cover; being named as ‘This issue’s top website’ on the Contactus homepage; extra shares, mentions and retweets; being first in line for any special extras; etc.

• get recommendations and referrals
wherever you need it, and whenever I see people asking for your product or service on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, etc

• place higher in a Google search
increased SEO (search engine optimisation) – the more of our online issues that your advert and urls can be found in, the more your Google ranking is boosted

• get better ROI
a smaller repeat advert can work out to be more easily affordable, allowing you to splurge once or twice on a bigger impact ad, and leading to all-round greater ROI (return-on-investment)

• save time
with a repeat advert, half the work is already done, as you’ve approved the artwork previously, and all that is left is to approve the accompanying story

• save more money
saving time usually means saving money, and you get to re-use your artwork
