Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
Author Jack Stephens sets out to educate small business owners about the benefits of smart advertising in his helpful new guide, “Sensible Small Business Advertising: Successfully Building Your Business with Effective Advertising” (published by iUniverse).
Written in clear, concise language, “Sensible Small Business Advertising” focuses solely on advertising – not marketing, which, while related, is its own separate entity, Stephens notes. The book teaches small business owners how to advertise effectively, keep advertising costs down and maximize the results.
Stephens discusses what he has identified as the two essential types of advertising and shows why they are equally important, what their strengths are, how they work together to create leads and how to best use them in a growing business. All forms of traditional advertising are addressed, along with Internet advertising and online visibility.
“This book will make sense of all areas of advertising,” Stephens writes. “It will guide business owners into choosing the right media at the right time, how to determine the return on their investment, how to create effective ads, and how to develop their ad program over time.”
