Ironically, in a recession, the first dollars that a company usually cuts come from the advertising budget. Advertising in a recession is actually a smart business move to grow your business now and for the future especially in a highly competitive industry or demographic.

McGraw-Hill Research conducted a study of U.S. recessions from 1980-1985. Out of the 600 business-to-business companies analyzed, the ones who continued to advertise during the 1981-1982 recession hit a 256-percent growth by 1985 over their competitors that eliminated or decreased spending.

American Business Press analyzed 143 companies during the economic downturn back in 1974 and 1975. Companies that advertised in those years saw the highest growth in sales and net income during the recession and the two years that followed.

The numbers aren’t a fluke. They prove there’s a reward for companies who are aggressive with their advertising efforts in a recession.

Here are even more reasons why you need to advertise your business in a bad economy:

Your Competition Won’t
Most small businesses have a limited advertising budget. During a recession, it’s easy to make up some of those dollars by holding back on advertising.

All that really does is open up the marketplace for that company’s competitors. The presence the business has spent ad dollars on to build up is now an open field for the competitors that are willing to advertise.

Let’s say you own an auto parts store. Consumers still need your company, no matter what the economy. Cars still break down. They still need windshield wipers and people will even buy those tree air fresheners. Your company can be the one the customer chooses because you’ve made your own presence known.

You Can Create a Long-Term Position for Your Business
Standing out in the marketplace is hard enough when you and your competition are battling it out in the ad world. As your competition cuts back on ad spending, your advertising can cut through that clutter.

Consumers may not be spending as much but they are still spending. If you’re not the company they think of when they do spend, your sales will decrease. While your competition is cutting back, you have the chance to be the company consumers spend with now while gaining their future business as you continue to advertise in good times and bad.

To Establish an Advertising Contact
This is the perfect time to establish a relationship with the person you’ll be doing business with at TV stations, radio stations, magazines, online, etc. An Account Executive can be your go-to contact to get your ads in prime placement, negotiate good deals on rates and even get extras thrown in for your ads. Giggidy Advertising prides itself on having the best Account Executives in the business, Contact us today to set up an appointment to get your company going in the right direction! 508-989-8420 or Zachary@giggidyadvertising.com, or look at our site  Advertising in Massachusetts

You can also use this new relationship to further grow your business. Talk with the AE about sponsorships, advertising trades and partnering.

Get Better Deals on Advertising
This is where you can use your new advertising contact. Ad inventory still has to be sold. TV stations, radio stations and magazines still have budgets to make.

Now’s a good time to get deals on your ad space. You can get more exposure through more ad placement and even freebies added into the mix. If you’re trying to get airtime on TV, for example, a station might also offer online advertising on its website as part of the deal. Negotiations are easier for the advertiser in a recession.

You Can Speak Directly to Customers Looking for Bargains
Don’t be afraid to address the bad economy in your advertising. Customers are looking for good deals. Some national advertisers are a prime example of this.

There are many satellite radio accessories to enable you to enhance your Sirius radio capabilities. For instance, you may decide to listen to two different stations of this latest technology in your house at the same time.


Or you may want a remote control with the three-line LCD display telling you the song title, station and artist. Or perhaps you’d like better reception in the car when you’re going through mountain terrain. No matter what the case may be, there are satellite radio accessories to meet your needs.


You may be wondering, “In addition to my subscription, what sort of accessories of this latest technology will I need to get started with Sirius in my home?” First of all, you will need to purchase an indoor or outdoor antenna.


There is a weatherproof indoor/outdoor antenna ($35) you can use with Sirius boombox kits, Sirius home kits and some Sirius radios. Or you may opt to mount a Sirius outdoor antenna ($40), which can be purchased separately or as part of a Sirius Home Distribution kit.


Next you should choose a home tuner. You can buy a simple home tuner (like the Sirius Connect) for as little as $49 that hooks onto your existing stereo system. Or you may prefer the SRH550 Sirius Home Tuner or Niles Sirius Tuner Module, which comes with display, game alerts, 30 channel presets, as well as antenna and remote all included. Most kits come with a special remote control that allows you to view songs, artists and stations (and change the station from any room in the house).


Instead of a home tuner module, some people prefer to buy a satellite radio ready boombox that plays CDs and MP3s as well. For $200, you may also like RCA’s Sirius Ready Shelf system, which gives you a 256 MB flash MP3 player so you can add your digital files to the system or rip songs off Sirius radio into MP3s as well. Nestled between two speakers and just the right size for a bedroom or kitchen set up, this satellite radio receiver makes an attractive gift.


Another logical purchase would be the $100 Sirius Echo Signal Repeater system, which allows you to send your signal to any room in the house, without running cables or antenna wires. If you have satellite television, you can buy a $60 Direct Broadcast Splitter kit, allowing you to run both things through just one cable, making installation and setup less complicated.


A new product called “Sonos” sells for $999 and allows you to listen to satellite radio and your entire digital music collection in up to 32 rooms, controlling them all from a full color, hand-held device, with no wires or connecting.


Taking a road trip? Some families look for satellite radio accessories that provide music and entertainment like the Sirius Backseat TV. While you’ll need an FM tuner and video monitor, the Sirius unit provides 24/7 children’s TV programming and Sirius radio capabilities for $300.


Other car accessories may include antennas, remote controls, mounting brackets, visor mount, or a direct adapter that allows you to play your satellite radio through your existing car stereo.

Having never been to Boston Massachusetts (MA), it seemed like a great time to venture into the unknown for the first time. A world traveler I am not, but a North American traveler I am. I have personally visited major cities across the USA and Canada over the years on both business and pleasure trips but one city I never had an opportunity to enjoy was Boston. The Boston Red Sox and Fenway park became my excuse to spend a weekend in the Boston area. Today’s best bet for hotel reservations are the do-it-yourself websites, of course. Select your arrival and departure dates and simply browse through the available choices. It’s then as easy as bringing out the old credit card and reserving a room.

Hotels in the area of Fenway Park were high priced which leads a value traveler to look outside the general area of the field and simply commute to the game. Would we drive to the game and find parking, take a taxi, or ride the subway? The choice was ours but the hotel staff made it perfectly clear that driving to Fenway and scavenging for parking was not a good idea. They also weren’t impressing on us that a cab was the way to go either. Traffic in downtown Boston is unpleasant and a cab fare could get costly if you find yourself bumper to bumper with thousands of other motorists trying to navigate their way through city streets. That leaves the subway system, called the “T”, as the most recommended form of transportation around the city. Hotel staffers were adamant in recommending the cheap public transportation as the most cost effective and quickest route to our destination.

The Boston subway was no more dirty or scary than any other train system we had ever ridden including New York City and Chicago but at times it was a bit confusing. Buying tickets to ride the “T” was simple… that is, right after we received assistance from a security guard at the station. initially I couldn’t figure the self-service ticket dispenser out, but watching the security guard breeze through made the process seem simple and even as if it were designed for a child. Once on board, the trains are colored to ease transfers if required and everything seemed under control. This was fine until we boarded a train that stopped one station ahead of our destination. An announcement over the sound system declared that all passengers must exit the train. Standing at the map in the station totally perplexed, a polite Boston native offered assistance without even requesting it. The advice proved priceless because the next train came along as expected and we finished our tour underneath Boston successfully.

The traffic in the city is just one reason driving your car through the city streets unpleasant. The Charles River cuts the city into sections and of course none of them are rectangular shaped for simplicity. The odd twists and turns of the roads and highways make it a prime location for first-time driver confusion. The age of the city, which also is one of its strong points from a tourism standpoint, is partly to blame for the unusual layout of roads. Our country’s forefathers apparently weren’t overly concerned with the chore of maneuvering motor vehicles through downtown Boston.

I would gladly bet a Fenway Frank and a cold beer that the city’s tricky streets and elaborate subway system aren’t so bad once you’ve taken some time to become a little more familiar with the local environment. We can’t forget the friendly Bostonians who are also eager to help answer questions and point first-time travelers in the right direction as well.
