As I sit in my office and gaze over to the calendar on my wall, it suddenly hits me, summer is coming. From a personal perspective, I then starting thinking on all the things that summer has meant to me and my family over the years. Summer was inherently the time we would take our family vacations, took it ease and basically just relaxed.
I believe that one way or another, sometimes this sense of taking it easy and relaxing even hold true in our business lives. We start thinking that summer time is a happy time. Well, as you have undoubtedly notice from past years, this time tends to be the time when most Americans take their vacations (happy times) and as such, the travel industry gets a huge boom.
But what about the rest of us, what about the auto repair shops, the florist, dentist, doctor, lawyer, etc. Do we just stop, close down and relax. No, people still need auto repair shops, florists, dentists, doctors, lawyers and people still spend money in the summer.
Actually, the summer time is a great time to advertise. The competition is less and the advertising opportunities are more readily available and as a Florida Barter member you have an added advantage, you can advertise using your Trade Dollars.
We must bear in mind that although most people look at the summer as vacation time, in our technology driven age, most people carry smart phones and thus are still communicating, checking emails and of course visiting websites.
So, if most people are relaxing in the summer and as we all know, spending money, the savvy business owner who advertises and gets their message out in front of them can see a significant return on their advertising Trade Dollar.
Florida Barter has access to a diverse advertising universe which includes, radio, print and online advertising as well as access to marketing and technology professionals who specialize in SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Social Media and graphic design to help get you on track.
Remember, summer is coming but summer is an awesome time to get your business in front of many more people by advertising.
