Why you Should Advertise your Business

Advertising your small business is important for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it helps to increase brand awareness, which is crucial for attracting new customers. By making people aware of your business and what it has to offer, you increase the likelihood that they will consider your products or services when they are in need of them.

Advertising also helps to build credibility and establish your business as a reputable and trustworthy source. This is especially important for small businesses that may not have a well-established reputation yet. By showcasing your products or services and highlighting positive reviews or testimonials, you can demonstrate to potential customers that you are a reliable and high-quality choice.

Another benefit of advertising is that it can help to drive sales and increase revenue. By promoting special offers or discounts, you can entice customers to make a purchase or try out your business. Advertising can also help to reach new audiences and expand your customer base, which can lead to long-term growth and success.

Overall, advertising is an important part of any small business strategy. It helps to increase brand awareness, establish credibility, drive sales, and reach new audiences. By investing time and resources into advertising, you can help your business stand out and succeed in a competitive marketplace.

Why did the System Fail Knia Walton?

Why did the System Fail Knia Walton?

Tiffany Walton, the mother of Knia Walton appeared on Flippin’ the Script radio talk show with host Francetta L. Mays on The Greenwood Beat – WFPG to discuss the investigation and bring awareness surrounding her daughter’s case. Walton to Francetta, “I am aware that my daughter used drugs but she was still a person. She still deserves justice.” She went on to give details of her daughter’s “murder” that took place July 4, 2023 at Pioneer Plaza, 901 N Elgin Ave., Apt. 214 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

As of now, the system has failed Knia. Tiffany talks with Francetta about the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s murder. She describe her interaction with the person(s) she believes is “allegedly” responsible for Knia’s death. The crime scene was not processed properly, very little questioning took place and the bloody shirt that was taken off of her daughter before medics responded was NOT taken with authorities.

What are we doing? How has this happened? Watch the interview below.
