Investing in Quality ~ Craftsmanship & Profile


A lot can be said for being frugal, conservative and buying on the cheap but whenever did you see Fortune 500 executives, the top 1000 wealthiest people, music stars, pro athletes or heads of state drive around in a Chev Aveo or Hyundai Accent?

Even with the current challenges in the global economy, companies are still spending vast amounts of money on advertising; just look at the numbers from the previous Super Bowl, 30 seconds of advertising time during the 2010 telecast is expected to cost US $2.6 Million dollars.

Why do leading companies and ultra narcissistic individuals pay for the best money can buy?  To stand apart in the ultra competitive market for consumer dollars and profile, and to show the world they are not only surviving in today’s marketplace but thriving!

For that reason our partner Davidson Elliott offers the ultimate marketing machine, the BBQ Grill of choice for the best and brightest companies that understand quality, craftsmanship and profile.

For those of you taking a more pragmatic approach to where to spend marketing budgets we did a quick overview on the current costs of media advertising and the investment in the profile of the Ultimate Grill…

Billboards – Phoenix*
Up to $10,000 per month for a single high profile location or
$700 to $2500 per month for a random billboard and dependent on the total $ commitment over the year or
$10,000 per month for a 25% market reach using a mix of billboards in a top 50 US market with Phoenix being a larger and more expensive market than the above quoted #’s

Plus design, artwork and set up fees $5000+

Billboard Market Prices Overview – http://www.sezampartner.com/the_billboards.html
Size:
Billboards come in various shapes and sizes. Traditional sizes are the 8-sheet (5′x11′), 30-sheet (12′x 24′), and Bulletin (14′ x 48′). However, city zoning ordinances and space limitations allow for a wide variety of sizes. Also, traditional and non-traditional sized structures can be fitted with extensions that allow the message to stretch beyond the fixed size of the structure.
Location:
Most billboards are located along major highways, arteries, and city streets. However, it is not uncommon to find outdoor signs attached to the walls of buildings that offer high visibility, like those in New York’s Times Square.
Cost:
The cost for billboard advertising varies wildly. Factors that affect cost include the size of the structure, the market where the advertising is displayed and the length of the advertising contract. In the top 50 US Markets, for instance, a single bulletin can be as high as $10,000 or more per month, while a niche location in the rural southwest, a sign planted in a farmer’s field just off a moderately traveled highway for instance, may cost $75 per month.

Most billboard campaigns are done in showings, that is, the effective number of billboards needed to reach an audience in any given market. Billboard companies list showings as #25, #50, #75 and #100 with a corresponding number of billboard locations needed to reach 25, 50, 75 or 100% of the market audience. Each showing package then has a corresponding monthly price. Some companies mix their inventory of 8-sheets,
30-sheets and bulletins to create a showing, while others have separate showings for each poster size.
The cost of a typical #25 showing using a mix of billboard structures in a top 50 US market will average around $10,000 per month.

Newspaper – Phoenix*

Arizona Republic
One time 4 x 4 color ad – $325 x 16 inches = $5,200 + $2000 for color
One time half page color ad = $25,000

What makes the BBQ Belles different from other event companies?

Three things differentiate us from the rest of the market.

1.    First being part of the Belles Group we are a comprehensive business solutions company. We work with our clients to assess their business development strategies, and identifying both short term and strategic marketing & sales objectives. Then the team works with the client to build a plan which leverages their marketing dollars.

2.    Secondly, we are the only event, promotion and marketing company in North America that has an exclusive partnership with Davidson Elliott, the manufacturer of the finest grills in the world. The BBQ Belles grill is a 16 foot, dual axle, 360,000 BTU Grill with all the trimmings including sinks, coolers and an integrated sound system!  It can accommodate 8 chefs grilling at the same time for 5 to 1000+ people.

This alone will create a buzz and have people talking about the next event you hold.

3.    Finally and most importantly are the Belles. The Belles are attractive and educated team members that work with our clients as event planners, designers, and ambassadors. The Belles bring sophistication and business acumen to every client engagement and event we participate in. We consultatively work with our clients to deliver the highest level of value to their marketing initiatives while focused on delivering strategic business solutions.
