Consumer marketing has changed in the last few years. The typical consumer is spending $175 less per month based on research done by the FED. The consumer is more focused on value. Has your marketing adjusted to the new realities for your product or service?
How the consumer finds what he wants is changing rapidly as well. Social media and websites are keys to branding rather than just traditional media advertising.
“Though 63% of consumers and small business owners turn to the internet first for information about local companies and 82% use search engines to do so, only 44% of small businesses have a website and half spend less than 10% of their marketing budget online.” Neilson
