Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) June 21, 2009 -- Michael Cohen, President of one of South Floridaâs leading full service advertising agencies, Cohen and Company Creative, Inc. encourages businesses to continue their marketing efforts despite a challenging economy.
âOften times during a down economy, marketing and advertising falls into the category that companies cut from their budgets first, and that ultimately does more harm than good. Marketing and advertising is an investment in the future growth and survival of a company,â said Cohen.
âWith a tough economy and competition that is more aggressive than ever, businesses should recognize that now is the time to forge ahead. This is a great opportunity to pick up market share and stand out from the competition instead of fade away,â Cohen said.
Cohen explains that marketing can put a company in a much better position now and in the future.
âRemoving marketing from your company can make it very difficult for customers to find you and if you donât have business, then unfortunately you could go out of business. It is important to maintain your advertising budget so you donât have to play catch-up to regain lost market share. Companies who loose share of mind loose share of market and in the end, it costs more to return to the former level of customer awareness.â
âMany people have a preconceived notion that marketing has to be expensive to be effective, this is incorrect. It is however imperative that companies practice smart marketing by looking at how they target their consumers and the kinds of messages they convey. During a recession, the same old, same old no longer applies. The needs of the consumer have changed and companies really need to examine their marketing and advertising strategies to incorporate the best plan of action.â
âPeople are still spending, companies just need to make sure that it is their business the consumer thinks of firstâ, Cohen concluded.
