Reclaim 'Top Of Mind' When Your Philadelphia Small Business Re-Opens

May 1, 2020 1:11:30 PM / by Larry Julius

Business was booming in the Delaware Valley. Then it was not.

Before the chaos brought on by Coronavirus, it had been predicted, based on estimates from the National Retail Federation, Philadelphia area consumers would spend 4.1% more in 2020 than they did in 2019. When the Governors of Pennsylvania and New Jersey shut down their states, however, the expectations of growth for many small business owners were replaced with fights for survival.

Advertising, however, may seem extravagant right now to Philadelphia area businesses that are struggling to make rent, purchase inventory, and meet payroll. Henry Ford, though, is often quoted as saying, "Stopping advertising to save money is like stopping a clock to save time."

Therefore, as business owners from Cherry Hill to King of Prussia  (and every point in between) are cinching their belts tighter-than-ever to stay alive, the dollars invested in advertising must be spent in the most effective manner possible.

During periods of uncertainty, advertising works the hardest when placed in within media that consumers trust.  During the time of COVID-19, advertising on Philadelphia radio has earned that trust among local consumers.
