    LeafFilterFrankly we were skeptical when you suggested that LeafFilter advertise in a brand new publication featuring only home improvement advertisers especially one intentionally published with no editorial content. Just ads, we thought, Who would want to read that? Well, now I can tell you, lots of people want to read your publication. TheHomeMag is a HIT. People are reading it and responding to our ad. Calls are coming in fast. People are interested. Clearly, youve got a winner on your handsCount us in! Keep up the good work.

  • Reversing the Recession

    Advertising should be regarded not as a drain on profits, not as an unavoidable expense but as a means of achieving objectives. Ad budgets should be related to the companies goals instead of to last years sales or to next years promises.

    Harvard Business Review


    Sales & profits can be maintained and increased in recession years and immediately following by those who are willing to maintain an aggressive marketing posture...- American Business Press and Meldrum & Fewsmith

    1974 - 1975

    Companies which did not cut marketing expenditures experienced higher sales and net income during those two years and the two years following than those companies which cut in either or both recession years. - American Business Press and Meldrum & Fewsmith

    1981 - 1982

    Business-to-business firms that maintained or increased their marketing expenditures during the recession averaged significantly higher sales growth both during the recession and for the following three years than those which eliminated or decreased marketing- McGraw-Hill Research's Lab of Advertising Performance

    During recessionary periods, these businesses tended to gain a greater share of market. The underlying reason is that competitors, especially smaller marginal ones, are less willing or able to defend against the aggressive firms. - Cahners and Strategic Planning Institute

    1990 - 1991

    The keys to gaining market share in a recession seem to be spending money and adding to staff- Management Review

    Studies have shown:

    Continuing to advertise in a recession increases sales.

    Did You Know?

    In Business To Grow BusinessSM

    The Anti-Recession Tool- Companies represented by the red did not cut their advertising budgets at the on-set of the

    recession. As a result, their sales increased 256% from 1979 (Year 1) to 1984 (Year 6). All other companies cut their advertising at some point during the recession. Consequently, their saleseither dropped or stabilized even after the recession ended.
