This 90-minute award-winning live Webinar is geared for local business owners/managers looking to get more people seeing, reading, and responding to their print and Web ad the very first time they run and consistently afterward.

You don’t need to have any special creative powers to get an instant and dramatic response from your print and online ads. In fact, the more creative an ad is, often the more confusing it can be and, as a result, the lower the effec- tiveness.

Instead, an ad should be the logical result of how people are consuming that particular medium, why target customers buy a product or service from one place rather than another, and other specif ics about the business and competition. During the session, his techniques will be illustrated by dozens of illuminating “before” and “after” case studies from a various types of business.

As long as you’re trying to get local people seeing, reading, and responding to your print or online ad, this seminar will apply. Hear is 90 minutes of solid, proven advertising techniques you can apply to your ad no matter where you end up running it. Only $199.

Here's are some of the topics covered in the seminar:

• The three key elements that should be in every ad but rarely are
