Sometimes it’s easier to know the right thing to do than to actually do it.
For years I have explained to clients that it isn’t necessary to put all their information and statistics in a commercial or have the staff standing in front of the business waving --- in order to get viewers to notice them. Everyone knows consumers are assaulted by more images than ever before - the true challenge is to find a way to cut through. As a marketer, your competition isn’t the guy down the street so much as it is the commercial message right before and right after you.
One of my newer clients – Robert Kulp of Blue Ridge Residential and Black Dog Salvage – made a break from the normal commercial and focused on communicating his message directly to his audience. Just like you won’t see a location listing at the end of a UPS commercial or after that “Five Dollar Footlong” jingle, you’ll notice the simplicity of this message.

Here is a gentle reminder – to get a bigger impact you may have to take a new approach. Communicate more with less clutter.
