Best Way To Advertise In Fort Myers With A Limited Budget

Aug 10, 2021 12:03:53 PM / by Larry Julius

To maximize success, every Southwest Florida business owner needs to advertise.

"Think you have a great product?" asks the US Small Business Administration. "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.”

According to the US Census Bureau, there are 51,360 small businesses in the Fort Myers area. This geography includes Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Immokalee, Naples, San Marco Island, and every point in between.  Most of these diminutive companies have limited dollars to invest in advertising.  

Advertising successfully in SWFL is achievable, though, with a small budget if the available funds are invested wisely.  Oftentimes, this means selecting one medium rather than spreading money over several.

So which medium makes the most sense for small business owners with limited budgets? By most key advertising metrics, advertising on Fort Myers radio is the best option.

Advertising On Fort Myers Television vs. Local Radio

Feb 24, 2020 6:35:26 PM / by Larry Julius

There is alarming news for Southwest Florida small business owners who advertise on Fort Myers television stations: broadcast TV viewers are disappearing at a rapid pace.

Nielsen reports that halfway through the first quarter of this year, the number of people using television has dropped 7.5%. This compares to -6.3% in the fourth quarter of 2019, and -7.0% a year ago,

"If the trend holds, it would represent the largest quarterly decline for TV viewership in our data set," explains UBS analyst John C. Hodulikadding. "Trends have worsened across most age demos with persons 25-34 now falling -17% vs. low double-digit declines throughout 2019. The persons 55+ demo continues to trend down -2%, similar to 2019 (the first year of declining ratings for the demo)."

Radio listenership, on the other hand, has remained quite stable, according to Nielsen. Since 1970, the medium has reached more than 9-in-10 consumers every week.
