Jeff Ogden of Find New Customers, who’s an award-winning marketing expert, sees a lot of misleading TV commercials, but he also reads the Wall St. Journal on his iPad every morning, which gives me the real story behind each company on TV.
- Volkswagon Sign then Drive deal
I have a VW Passat I love, but USA sales are down 12% and their costs in Germany are far too high because they make everything and have strong unions. Plus they have new leadership in Germany.
My suggestion: Wait 2-3 years before buying a new VW, because the auto industry is changing fast and Volkswagon in at the front of that line. That’s my plan. To keep my Passat for two years before buying a new car in 2016, when Find New Customers is booming, thanks to new partnerships with organizations like Likeable Local and the St. Pete Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Business Marketing Association, which is now part of the ANA and is poised for a great 2015. I’m the founder of the BMA of Tampa Bay! 2015 is an exciting year for Find New Customers.
- Radio Shack is the place to buy gifts
This company has not made a profit in nine years and is about to go into bankruptcy, according to the WSJ.! Will the person who got the gift be able to return it?
My suggestion: I would not buy Christmas gifts there if I were you from the next Circuit City, the electronics store that is out of business.
- McDonald’s ads
Their menu is far too complicated and they use too many preservatives, which they are working hard to fix .
My suggestion: I wish them much success, but there are much better places and healthier food to eat out there and the complex menu has slowed service. Eat at healthy places like Chipolte instead.
Happy Holidays from your friends at Find New Customers!
