What is the true cost? Advertisements in magazines, coupon books, radio and even television are expensive. Unfortunately, their effectiveness is usually short lived. Radio and television ads last only a minute or so. Print ads may last a week or a month but may also be discarded in seconds. After the expenditure, what are you left with? An invoice.
On the other hand, being a member of a group of like minded professionals can have lasting results. Getting to know local successful professionals with similar goals, ethics and drive inspire you to meet your potential as a business leader. Plus, the cost of being a member of such a group is less than you might spend on other methods of advertising.
Subtract the cost of breakfast at one of Santa Clarita’s finest establishments once a week and the cost of being a member of such a group is a ‘no brainer’.
