When should companies run advertisements? Companies want to run ads when they can reach the most people in order to generate the most interest in their products and services.
For example, a company has been running a radio advertisement every day for several months and now wants to put it on a schedule to cut costs. They want to make sure that they run their ad on a day that would reach the most people.
TIP: Track call data on advertising campaigns more efficiently by using one phone number for each campaign. To add phone numbers to an account, contact a Nextiva Account representative.
