Prior to the downturn in the economy in 2008, I never saw the need to advertise my construction business in our local newspapers. I had been in business since 1984 and I always relied on quality work, word of mouth and a good economy to keep the jobs coming in. Everything changed in 2008. We went from building two to three homes per year to three homes in the past five years! It wasn't that our pro.ducts or services had changed; rather it was the economy that changed how people were spending their money. Had it not been for the advertising plan that Feather Publishing put together for us that brought us some 100-plus new customers, we would have been in really trouble today. We developed a new business model, one that we had when we first started the business over 30 years ago. We found that people were focusing more on small projects, remodels, garages and additions instead of new homes. We wanted to let people know that we still did all of those things, as well as new homes and we were ready to help with any project they had no matter how large or how small. The marketing team at the newspaper stressed from the beginning that consistency was the key to success in any form of advertising whether it be in print, radio or television. They said it's that repetitive exposure that brands a business' name and brings long-term results. They were right! That exposure and consistency has gained us well over a hundred new customers. In turn, because of the quality of our work, that expanded customer base has built a lot of goodwill for our company. Take it from someone who was one of the biggest skeptics of advertising, it really works! Today we are living proof of how a local company that was struggling to find work made it through one of the toughest times that our economy and the building industry has experienced. We made it, due in no small part to our advertising campaign in our local newspapers. Thank you Feather Publishing!
