It is still a scary time for businesses at the moment. There is not limited amount of money circulating in the economy and it means that people are not spending as much as they did in the past. This means that companies are struggling to make a profit, even the big ones. Therefore any expense being done by a company has to be considered very carefully.
This is even more important for small businesses where the profit margins are smaller and any spending could mean the different between a profitable or non-profitable month. This has meant that many businesses in New Haven have not been spending very much.
It does make sense that everyone wants to hold on to their earning as much as they can. But it is also important to invest money so that you can get some return on that investment. One of the main things companies have cut back was in marketing. They have lower budgets and felt like this is an area where they do not need to spend money. Nevertheless, if you want the business to grow, get new customers and be better known, then marketing is the way to go.
Everyone will tell you that free marketing is the best. When people personally recommend your product, there is no cost to you, the person trusts it more and it is more likely to lead to a sale. However, even if your products are absolutely amazing, there is unlikely to be enough talk about them to give you more business than you can cope with.

Do some research about your options, look at any spare budget you might be able to use and look at marketing companies that might be able to help you and find out what they can do for you and how much it will cost. You could find yourself making a really profitable decision.
