Contacto Magazine (CA) Supports Clients During Recession

Contacto Magazine (CA), a publication aimed at Hispanics/Latinos since 1994, is taking a number of actions to support its existing and new advertisers during the current economic downturn in order to help them get more for their advertising and marketing budgets.

New actions to support existing and new advertisers are: Special discount plans, Affordable cross-promotion packages, FREE ad space.

According to most experts, marketing and advertising activities should be kept up during recessions. By 1985, sales of companies that were aggressive recession advertisers had risen 256 percent over those that didn't keep up their advertising. In addition, a series of six studies conducted by the research firm of Meldrum & Fewsmith showed conclusively that advertising aggressively during recessions not only increases sales but increases profits.

Internet marketing may be a great tool to reach consumers, including those Latino consumers who have a higher purchasing power and a strong education in terms of online shopping.
