About Jerry Brisinger

I am the Marketing Director of a small media development company. We deal with hardware,software, and hard goods. As part owner of that company, I am able to see many of the true inner workings of the decision making process.

They are wrong. In my posts I hope to show you what it is that I mean.

In the world of print ads size does matter. Not just size, but staying the same size with your ads. Having to down-size your print ads has a lot to say about your company.

Always increase the size of your display print ads, never decrease them. Reverting to a smaller size gives prospects and clients the impression that you are having to cut back. It's better to run a smaller ad consistently until you can afford to run a larger ad (for at least six months).
