Outdated Hartford Advertising? We’re Here to Help!

wallscape advertising in hartford ctThere truly is no better place to call home than Hartford (just ask Mark Twain). But it’s not just writers and artists who make their livings in our great state’s capital. Business owners across industries benefit from the commerce opportunities Hartford affords. Of those, many small business owners struggle to choose the best Hartford advertising for their budgets. They often don’t know what’s available or what to expect in terms of ROI, which can lead to some expensive marketing mistakes. For instance, here are three popular, but not always profitable, advertising channels:

  1. TV commercials like those produced by or Comcast Spotlight have impressive reach but are they worth the cost? With TV advertising, you’re able to target your audience based on show content and air dates/times but unable to glean who exactly saw your ad and what specific actions they took in response to it.
  2. Outdoor advertising (billboard advertising, digital signage, wallscapes, outdoor signs, etc.), like TV ads, builds brand awareness by reaching thousands. But is everyone who sees your billboard ad in Hartford likely to frequent your small business? Are you wasting money with a mass-reach strategy?
  3. Classified ads in the Hartford Courant advertising goods and services are declining in popularity as newspaper readership continues its steady decline. The audience for Hartford Courant classified ads also tends to skew older. There are most definitely better print advertising solutions out there.
