Digital Advertising Program
In an effort to assist businesses like yours during these difficult times, we’ve put together Amplified Cares,
a program aimed at helping businesses supplement their marketing dollars to help them stay afloat, weather the storm, and emerge stronger.
During recessions in 1980-1985 businesses that continued to advertise grew by 256% over competitors that eliminated or decreased spending.
In 1974 and 1975, companies that advertised during those times saw the highest growth in sales and net income.
During 1990-91 recession Pizza Hut grew their sales by 61% while McDonalds, who dropped advertising and promotions, declined 28%.
During the 2009 Recession, Amazon grew by 28%. They continued to innovate during the slumping economy.
A 2008 AdWeek study showed companies who reduced their ad budget during economic downturns saw income fall by 20 – 30% during the next two years.
The same study by AdWeek in 2008 found that brands that went dark were perceived to be failing.
