The toughest part of any endeavor is getting started.  Most people won’t start anything until everything is perfect, the lights are all green, the road is clear ahead and their vehicle is clean and in pristine condition.  When it comes to Advertising and Marketing, waiting is the kiss of death, timing is everything which means you have to start and move ahead before everyone else, yes that means running a red light, leaving your drive way before the vehicle is polished and waxed and it may even mean heading down a road that is full of detours and other obstacles.  Getting started and getting your message out there quickly is the most important part of any attempt to promote yourself or your business.

It’s ok to make mistakes, sometimes what you think was a mistake may end up being the greatest advertising idea you ever came up with.  Your advertising is written in stone unless you are only advertising on stone monuments placed in front of your business.  Today everything has changed,  media that worked well for your business in the past may be the worst option imaginable.  Technology has changed everything, even the most technologically  advanced media has found a way to make themselves a problem when it comes to advertisers getting their messages out.

I have spent the last 30 years both selling and buying advertising and marketing services, I have seen first hand what worked well for my clients, what worked well for me and of course had the unique opportunity to be on both ends of advertising campaigns that failed miserably.  I hope to offer the readers of this blog, ideas and suggestions that can Supercharge the sales in their business.  As my nick name suggests (Cinema Ad Guy), I just might have a preference when it comes to media and advertising, but I won’t let that get in the way of giving you real world tips associated with all types of media.  More importantly, the key to success with any media is creativity and getting started.  So a major focus of my blog will be kick starting your program and creatively marketing your business.  My biggest thrill in life these days is helping other people become successful, there’s nothing like that, which is why I think I loved my early years in radio when I was able to work one on one with the people advertising on my radio show.  We didn’t just run ads on that radio show, I helped each and every one of  my clients develop a long-term relationship with their customer base.  That relationship translated into supercharged sales and profits and I hope to help as many entrepreneurs as possible do the same through this blog.  Thanks for checking out my blog and be sure to hit the subscribe button so you won’t miss any installments of my tips for your business.  You can also visit my website at www.cinemaadguy.com.  Like I said earlier the most important thing is getting started, I created this blog and my website in about 4 hours one evening last week, it’s not done, nor will it ever be done, it will be constantly updated, so I hope you will check back frequently.
