It’s an industry fact – whenever marketing companies are busy early in the year like we are right now – the economy is poised to improve and people are going to be spending more money than they have been in the recent past. The busier the marketing consultants and business coaches are, the more money is going to be spent by consumers. Here’s how we know.
If you live and work in or near a tourism area, such as Western North Carolina or Florida or anywhere people like to take vacations, you have an easy way to tell how 2011 is going to be, economically speaking. Simply call up some bed and breakfasts, theme parks, tourist attraction or wedding venues – and ask about their spring/summer/fall bookings. If they are reporting increased bookings (and summer bookings in popular tourism areas are out the roof right now) then you know, as a business owner, that they will be spending money. On food. Cars. Clothing. Sports equipment. Pet sitting. Carpet cleaning, landscaping, jewelry, hair salons and spas – the list goes on. Even printing and office supplies and commercial rentals will see a viable increase in their business this year because the economy does not improve in one segment alone.
And this is not intended to be a dissertation on the economy. We’re telling you this because we know, based on the fact that business for us as a marketing company tripled in the first eight weeks of this year, that YOU are going to be busy this year. You’d better start marketing vigorously if you want a piece of that action (money). We’ll be here if you’d like to talk about what you should do. Just give us a call (828) 367-0488, or email us.
