The political season of an election cycle means the market is inundated with ads. This sometimes causes businesses to reduce their advertising efforts, assuming the market is just too saturated with content to make a splash.

Ownership exists in a sphere above customer loyalty and is closer to an actual relationship than a mere customer/business interaction (but not in a weird way). To encourage your customers to move from passive to loyal and then to ownership by “romancing them” follow the tips listed below:
