Systems offer stability. They provide your business with a set of actions and goals that are both understandable and attainable. Attempting to successfully market a business without a well-outlined system in place is a recipe for disaster. That's why, at Zimmer, we highly recommend our favorite marketing method that has proven to produce results time and time again: The BrandsFormation™ System. The four steps that comprise this system include: Strategy, Strategy-Based Message, Consistency, and Dominant Frequency. Read along as we detail how this system has the power to “transform your good, small business into a great local brand.”

Today is World Radio Day!
In honor of one of our favorite marketing mediums, we've put together an infographic with some facts about radio. Take a look!
For decades, the traditional (or nuclear) family — consisting of a father, mother, and their children — dominated the makeup of an average household in the U.S. This common family unit gave businesses a predictable target audience to advertise their products and services to. Today, however, this traditional family model makes up less than half of all families in the country. Not to mention, the behaviors and preferences of the modern-day consumer have also changed drastically, even within the last ten years. In essence, there is no such thing as a “typical” American family anymore.
Too often, businesses gauge the full success of their advertising on consumer comments. They may be tempted to feel a rush of fame when their radio jingles are sung in public or when their faces are recognized from their magazine or TV ads. While a level of excitement over this kind of feedback is certainly merited, trouble arises when businesses elevate the importance of these responses over hard-and-fast results. This misplacement of priorities can lead to confusion and could ultimately, cause businesses to get off-track with their goals.
Think back to when you were a little kid on Christmas morning, anxiously awaiting to tear into your long-anticipated presents. Those moments of waiting were most likely filled with so much hype, it was virtually impossible to remain calm. At Zimmer, those exact feelings of hype and great anticipation are beginning to swell, as The 2019 CoMo Man Show draws near.
