|Effectively Communicate with Your Customers
Its very easy to throw away thousands upon thousands of dollars on advertising if your customers don't have a SIMPLE way of
getting in contact with you. Even with an intriguing commercial that catches the attention of a potential customer. You could
completely loose the open door you've created, if you slam it shut with a complex or un-memorable phone number or website.
I always stress a very simple rule - Keep It Simple
No one is going to remember "Call 316-672-8901" - No matter how often it is repeated. Or "visit double-you, double-you,
double-you, dot my business dot com slash great deals slash radio sale". NO ONE, No matter how photogenic their memory
will retain this information when they need it. People will hear the random combination of numbers as just that, a random
combination of numbers, NOT a phone number. The brain is not equipped to retain information this way. When trying to recall
a web address such as the one mentioned, they will recall it in the wrong order, often times with words that were never even
You may reason with yourself, "If its important to my customers, they will remember it... Right?". Wrong.
Often times radio advertising will connect with hundreds if not thousands of potential customers. However, only a fraction will
become real customers because only a few were able to recall the information needed to follow through. Why is this? Its
because all too often, this information is poorly communicated in the commercial message. However, hundreds if not
thousands, WANT TO FOLLOW THROUGH... If they could recall how to!

Simple Web Address. This one is simple. If you sell chocolate, try to have a web address such as "lovechocolate.com" or
"eatchocolate.com". Something easily remembered.
Not "www.ignieseandsons-chocolatefactoryandtours.com" or even worse "ignieseandsons-chocolatefactoryandtour.com/radio".
With the thought of adding the "/radio" to help "track" your marketing. Doing this tracks nothing other than the fact that people
don't know how to spell the name of the business, remember the dash between words and the slash radio at the end.
If you have an existing website that is not an easily remembered name, the $10 - $15 per month it may cost to buy a
memorable referring address may result in increased visits and increased business.
