For Marketing In 2018 and 2019 These Are The 5 Challenges Decision Makers Face

  1. Not Seeing Results
  2. There Is Not Enough Money
  3. Not Being Seen Enough By The Right People
  4. Regular People Don’t Trust What Their Marketing Is Saying
  5. There Is Always More Work

Challenge 1: Not Seeing Results

How many businesses have tried to “post a bunch” on social media only to get no return?  How many businesses have tried to “spend a bunch” of Facebook Advertising only to see no good results?  Unfortunately businesses continuously say that they do a lot of work, in the new “age of social media” but they don’t see tangible results from all that effort.

“Marketing” for the sake of “marketing” is like “throwing away money” for the sake of “throwing away money”.

Here is our solution to helping our mass-advertisers

  • we work with you to help you know what is the most valuable offer to show the reader base
  • we work with you to help you get in front of the right person by aligning your business with the magazine stories
  • we show you real data on our audience so you know what readers you will be in front of
  • we work with you to help your message sell itself (with the right word choice and the right offer)

Our aim is for your marketing to get results.

  • Results like people setting up meetings with your company
  • Results like people visiting your website
  • Results like people opening accounts with your company
  • Results like people wanting to call to find out more information

Being results focused is the only way to make marketing worth its time and money investment

Challenge 2: There Is Not Enough Money

This is one of the major benefits of advertising with the Solutions Journal because your advertising is tax deductible.

The money you pay Google for Google Ads is not be tax deductible.  The money you pay Facebook for Facebook advertising is not tax deductible.  And the money you pay for marketing staff or marketing consultants is not tax deductible.  But your advertising with the Solutions Journal is tax deductible which means that it can fit into a business’s budget because businesses know they would prefer to pay less taxes if they could.

Also, our flexible pricing options allow for your business to find the marketing option that works for you.

Challenge 3: Not Being Seen Enough By The Right People

Like we mentioned, we already have a large audience.  We are seen in 207 Countries, we have over 100,000 newsletter subscribers, and we have over 15,000 monthly visitors to our website.

Challenge 4: Regular People Don’t Trust What Their Marketing Is Saying

People are sold to all the time.

In 2018, with all the social media buzzing around, talk is cheap.  It’s unfortunate because there are honest businesses and honest organizations that are being drowned out by the noise.

When you market with the Solutions Journal, our readers can trust that your company is being honest in its message because the Solutions Journal is a credible publication that only works with trustworthy brands and companies.

Challenge 5: There Is Always More Work

When your business advertises with the Solutions Journal.  You don’t just get to advertise in one issue.  Rather, your advertising gets sent out to our subscribers and that copy of the magazine will be featured on our website with 15,000 monthly visitors.

This means that even after the issue comes our your marketing dollar is still giving value to your company or organization.  It doesn’t just “stop” after on issue gets released.

Your marketing dollar lasts much longer than any regular marketing dollar can last in this fast paced world.
