Take a look at what Thomas Smith has to say ...
The first time a man looks at an ad, he doesn’t see it.
The second time, he doesn’t notice it.
The third time, he is conscious of its existence.
The fourth time, he faintly remembers having seen it.
The fifth time, he reads the ad.
The sixth time, he turns up his nose at it.
The seventh time, he reads it through and says, "Oh brother!"
The eighth time, he says, "Here's that confounded thing again!"
The ninth time, he wonders if it amounts to anything.
The tenth time, he will ask his neighbor if he has tried it.
The eleventh time, he wonders how the advertiser makes it pay.
The twelfth time, he thinks it must be a good thing.
The thirteenth time, he thinks it might be worth something.
The fourteenth time, he remembers that he wanted such a thing for a long time.
The fifteenth time, he is tantalized because he cannot afford to buy it.
The sixteenth time, he thinks he will buy it someday.
The seventeenth time, he makes a memorandum of it.
The eighteenth time, he swears at his poverty.
The nineteenth time, he counts his money carefully.
The twentieth time he sees the ad, he buys the article or instructs his wife to do so.
If you think this idea is outdated, think again. The idea that FREQUENCY is essential to your marketing success is still relevant - even though this book was written 125 years ago!
It really is a POWERFUL message. Although neither George nor I ever read his book (only because we didn't know it existed), we always followed these principles ... we kept our name in front of our prospects on a regular and frequent basis. We made sure our farm areas as well as our client/prospect list heard from us every single week. And it paid off - big time.
What has changed from 1885 is the MEDIA you use. In this market you may not have the funds to market yourself using radio, TV, large newspaper ads, etc. in order to get your message in front of someone 20 times. Instead, learn how to use the Internet to reach your target market and get their permission to contact them - FREQUENTLY.
