Over the next 12 months, Fayetteville area consumers are expected to spend $8.5 billion at retail. To capture a larger share of this cash, small business owners in Cumberland and Robeson Counties should consider advertising.
The US Small Business Administration recommends that every Fayetteville small business advertise consistently. “Think you have a great product?” asks the SBA. “Unfortunately, no one’s going to know about it unless you advertise.” The SBA goes on to say, “Advertising, if done correctly, can do wonders for your product sales, and you know what that means: more revenue and more success for your business."
Local business owners have depended on radio advertising to market their goods and services since 1939. This was the year Wall Christian Ewing and Harry Layman put the first local station, WFNC, on the air.
Today, Fayetteville radio, by any key advertising metric, is still the best way for business owners to reach local consumers.
