Your New Year Resolution

It's New Year's resolution time! Our client MDfitness is offering The Doctor's Workout to consumers that want to get in shape and stay in shape. Here’s to a happy and HEALTHY 2015!

Tasty Effective Referrals

Referrals Programs Do Not Have to be Expensive To Be Effective. In the latest referral campaign we created for our client Ripano Stoneworks, they offered free pies to their past customers. Ripano thanked them for their business with an invitation to stop by their showroom and pick-up a delicious free pie. The pie included a reminder that if they share the pie with a friend and tell them about the granite countertop they purchased from Ripano, maybe next year they will return the favor.  This campaign was a big hit with customers and we are happy with the conversations it started. Say thank you to your loyal customers, while keeping your business top of mind presence. Referrals are invaluable to to the success of a business. If your customers are happy about your product or service, you can guarantee they are going to talk about it, and maybe suggest you to their friends and family.

Congratulations Best Fitness!

Extending Your Sales

When life gives you a Nor'easter.. You don't make lemonade, you extend your biggest sale of the year! Our client Proctor Ski & Board knows the power behind a good blizzard, they also know how to treat loyal customers, by extending their Black Friday Specials an extra week.

Market Research Strategies

The best way to really find out what consumers think of your product or service is to ask them! Focus groups allow you to retrieve invaluable information from the consumer's perspective. Information gathered in focus groups can be used to further develop concepts, and give you in-depth insight into what campaign strategies are more effective. We recently completed a focus group for our client Unitil, in which the client was able to watch the focus group through a two-way mirror. Are you interested in conducting a focus group  for your product or service? Contact Chris Cooper at  for more information.

Electoral Window Blues for Media Buyers

Media buyers like us cannot wait for Election Day, not because we want to vote, but so we can have more media options back with less clutter! The political window that started back in September will be over November 4th. In our 20 years of media buying in New Hampshire and Boston, we have never seen such a crazy fluctuation in broadcast media inventory. With negative ads as a major component, many viewers just tune out. Media placement can be like any good political campaign because victory comes down to planning and execution. This cycle will end in a few short days, but in our home state of New Hampshire, the upcoming presidential primary campaign ads will start as early as next year. Be prepared and don't forget to vote on Tuesday! Here at Burke Advertising we always keeping our clients' best interest in mind when scheduling spots and work closely to ensure ads are reaching their target market.
