For small businesses, effective advertising can mean the difference between fortune and failure. But if you’re going to throw your money into advertising willy-nilly you might as well just throw it away. And if your business can’t afford a big advertising firm you may have to write your own advertising copy. But could you? Don’t worry, because with Advertising For Dummies, you will!

If you need help figuring out which advertising media offers you the most exposure or determining how much you can realistically spend on your advertising budget, then look no further.
