Businesses and organizations use marketing tactics to advertise, spread information, get your business, and for any other reasons to promote. This can be in the form of coupons, rebates, ads, special offers, and so on. Be aware of the dangers of good marketing.
Not saying that any marketing is bad. It’s all about how you interpret them and what your reactions are to them. If you are trying to watch your spending, impulse buying is probably not a great idea. Are you tempted by sales, rebates, and coupons? Companies and organizations spend a large amount of money on marketing and it pays off.
One that I fell for recently was that I get $10 off if I spend a minimum of $10 at an office store. That sounds great, doesn’t it? If I can find something for $10, it would essentially be free. What’s the probability that I’m going to find something for $10 exactly so that it’ll be a perfect purchase? What happened is that I tried and tried to look for an item that I needed for $10 but I couldn’t. I was finding things either under $10 or things over $10 where I found myself needing to spend more on something I didn’t need.
Have you fallen for good marketing? Again, marketing isn’t bad. It’s about how you react to the marketing that’s going to be good or bad depending on you. Watch out for the dangers of good marketing ads. Their job is to get your interest and then hook you in.
