But advertising can be very expensive. If you want to put a pretty color picture ad in a national type magazine, you are going to spend, depending on the size of the ad and the magazine, something like $400.00. And that is more than likely about 1/12th of a page. For one ad. For one month. For one magazine. Statistics say that you need to run a magazine ad for approximately 3 to 6 months for people to start to respond to your ad. Which is why I run a text ad in the Online Connections area in Somerset Studio. It fits my budget better. :-)
So. When one receives a free mention of their business somewhere, anywhere, as a business they are (or should be) most grateful. And I want to say here that as a business woman I am honored and most grateful for the mention in the Mary Janes Farm Magazine Dec-Jan. issue. I didn't even know this magazine existed until I started to get orders for glass glitter and some of my customers were kind enough to answer my one check out question: "where did you find us?". That question is so important to a business and I always appreciate anyone who takes the time to answer that question. And doesn't this magazine look scrumptious. I checked it out online and also see that it's founder and creator Mary Jane Butters was in one of the latest "studio" magazines just out. So go, check out her and her magazine. I just may have to subscribe.
