Your advertising budget is nothing to dismiss. The money you spend on advertising should pay off twofold:
Response. Whether it comes in the form of a direct sale, a question about your product/service, or at the very least a website hit for your business, your advertising should have a direct effect on your potential sales.
Branding. You want your business identity in the face of your sales prospects as often as you can and in much repetition. If your customer doesn't need you now, you want them to remember you when they do.
