More Bay Area Business will die this Year

But, they don’t have too

I have some bad news for some and some very good news for you. If you’re reading this, you’re at least thinking about this topic, which means you have a good chance to survive.

The marketing rules are not changing, they have already changed- If you’re still advertising in the yellow pages and denying that the Internet is where your advertising budget should be, you’re probably not reading this (unfortunately) and your business will be closed by the end of this year. Sorry, but its true. I’ve been watching this happen here in the East Bay of San Francisco, CA for the last couple of years. And it’s been painful to watch. I’m writing this, not to self promote, but to help put a tourniquet on the bleeding.

Here’s a heads up…Real Estate, SF Law firms and financial institutions have been investing massive infusions of big dollars in Internet marketing for the last 5-10 years; that’s no secret. Who has not are home service companies like roofers, plumbers, carpet cleaners, contractors and blue collar companies like machinists, welders and fabricators and believe it or not, high tech fabrication companies here in Silicon Valley.
