HELP YOUR COMPANY MAKE A LOT MORE MONEY!
WHEN YOUR READERS...OR YOUR BOSS...OR YOUR ADVERTISERS ASK YOU...
“WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ADVERTISING?”
...Now you can tell them about some easy-to-use advertising math that can help their company make a lot more money!
The math is called “The Barrows Popularity Factor.”
“The Barrows Popularity Factor” is a very simple equation that actually lets you quantify the relationship between advertising and sales, according to Robert Barrows, President of R.M. Barrows, Inc. Advertising and Public Relations in San Mateo, California.
The reason the math works is very simple.
The equation reduces the relationship between advertising and sales to its lowest possible common denominator...namely, “How much did you sell? (divided by) How much did you advertise?” (But don’t do the math in dollars...do it in units per gross impressions.)
In mathematical terms, the formula looks like this:
The Barrows Popularity Factor= How much did you sell? (In units) divided by /How much did you advertise? (in gross impressions)
The answer you get is a rate of return on gross impressions.
That rate of return on gross impressions quantifies the popularity of your product and its promotion, and by doing so, it quantifies the relationship between your advertising and sales.
“Once you can quantify the relationship between your advertising and sales, you can then begin using a variety of other easy calculations to help you test and compare various elements of your advertising, and it can help you plan and project your advertising to help you increase your sales, increase your profit and decrease your risk,” says Barrows.
The math and how to use it is explained in a booklet he wrote called “The Barrows Popularity Factor.”
“You can read the whole booklet in about an hour, and the math is so easy to use that all of the calculations can be done by one person, in moments, with just a simple calculator,”

(NOTE TO EDITORS): News and media companies that sell advertising can also use this math to help them increase their advertising revenue because they can use the math to help them work with their clients to help them make their advertising much more effective. Media companies can also use the math to help them plan their own advertising campaigns to help them increase their circulation and increase their audience.)
“With the math in ‘The Barrows Popularity Factor,’ businesses can start taking a lot of the guesswork out of their advertising and they can use the math to help them make a lot more money,” says Barrows.
Every day, in every business, the people in charge of advertising, marketing and sales will constantly be reviewing all of their efforts to increase their business.
The big questions they look at are “How can they make a lot more money?” and “How much money can they make?”
The other questions that every business looks at regarding advertising are as follows:
*How much should you spend on advertising?
*How should you spend it?
*What should you say?
*What is the best media mix for your company and your advertising budget?
*Which ads and which media are producing the best results?
*Which media should you increase, and by how much?
*Which media can you decrease, and by how much?
*How is your competition spending their advertising budget?
*How is your competition affecting the sales of your products and services?
....And a lot of other questions along these same lines.
“The answers to these questions are very complex and there is no way to quantify all of the intangibles that affect the sales of a product...intangibles like the demand for a product, the availability of product, the consumer’s propensity to spend, whether you had a good sales force or a great sales force during the period of time of a specific promotion, your competition, and even the weather can’t really be quantified with cold, hard numbers, and all of these factors are intertwined.
Plus, everything about the product and everything that you do to promote a product, and everything in the marketplace that affects the sales of that product will be reflected in the “Popularity”
In short, the easy-to-use math in “The Barrows Popularity Factor” will allow you to test and compare your advertising copy and media, better, faster and less expensively. Plus, it will give you more of the information you need to make key marketing decisions with far less risk, says Barrows.
