“The Wise Man Built his House Upon a Rock” and Businesses are built “From the Ground Up”. Robert Taylor says that “Like – streams and rivers, we encounter, smooth down and over come obstacles and challenges.” Published entrepreneurs state that building a business is akin to building a fire, and “The first step of building a great fire is to gather kindling and newspaper to gently feed the fire when it is first ignited. The small branches and twigs provide the fuel necessary to build a fire, without smothering the flames.” The Better Business Bureau encourages consumers and entrepreneurs to seek “Fair Winds” and warns against “Hot Air”.

Which ads are kindling the consumer’s fire? Unwatched, unread or unheard advertising dollars may as well be used for building a fire, balled up and thrown beneath a log. Where are the ads sparking intrigue, igniting the interest of potential customers, clientele or investors?

Advertising without accountability smother businesses with costly marketing costs and weakens business owners. These and other obstacles become increasingly harder to overcome. Without knowing which advertising campaigns are effective. it’s easy to waste time, money and efforts repeating that which does not work.
