In order for small business owners to garner maximum pull and penetration with their generally small marketing budgets, it is vitally important to enter into the conversation that is already going on inside your customers’ heads
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) January 19, 2006
On the heels of the fifth season of Fox’s American Idol, small business owners have a huge opportunity to leverage Fox’s fortune into their own and put big bucks into the bank in the process.
International Marketing Consultants Jimmy Vee and Travis Miller make a powerful plea to small business owners, “Watch American Idol or go out of business.”
According to the US Small Business Administration, over 500,000 new small businesses are born each year. But as many as 50% fail in their very first year of life. According to Vee and Miller, these daunting figures are a direct consequence of the below-average marketing efforts employed by small businesses across the nation – and the fact that most marketing fails to connect with the intended target at a personal, emotional and relevant level.
“In order for small business owners to garner maximum pull and penetration with their generally small marketing budgets, it is vitally important to enter into the conversation that is already going on inside your customers’ heads,” says Jimmy Vee, co-founder of http://www.GravitationalMarketing.com. Vee adds, “It is much easier to sell a prospect if you are in sync with what they are already thinking and talking about. Plus, by tapping into their current thoughts and emotions your message will penetrate deeper and make a longer lasting and more powerful impact.”
Travis Miller, the other half of http://www.GravitationalMarketing.com points out, “American Idol is slated to reach some 27.5 million viewers. How many of these viewers are your prospects? Chances are a good number of them.” Miller continues, “Tying into media, news and pop culture events is a secret marketing hammer that small businesses can use for little cost to propel themselves into pseudo-local celebrity status.”
Vee and Miller’s recommendation for the salvation of any small business: Gravitational Marketing. A system that allows small business owners, solo sales professionals and marketing managers to naturally attract new customers quickly and effortlessly – like gravity pulls objects to earth.

“By watching American Idol and other reality TV, you can be more in-tune with the pulse of your prospects. Even if you don’t like the crooning divas yourself, you can gain a marketing edge worth millions by paying attention to pop culture,” insists Vee.
“Studies show that the American Idol audience (and the Reality TV audience in general) is not limited to the teen-age crowd. Members of almost every segment, age and demographic are partaking in the festivities offered by prime-time reality. It’s consuming their thoughts and desires,” Miller adds.
“Paying attention to what your prospects are watching and thinking about is one strategy that small business owners can use for low- to no-cost that can really put substantial sales on the board and dollars in the bank,” concludes Vee.
Jimmy Vee and Travis Miller give three no-cost and simple research tools that small business owners can use to tap into the conversations of their potential prospects in addition to watching reality TV:
