Concluding my report, I am now able to establish the significant markets which would provide a maximised profit into my business. These industries consist of Retail and Clerical jobs which have clearly shown a high increase in employee population, meaning, I am able to focus on specific audiences without wasting time or money on un-needed types of work. To maximise profit, I have to ensure I am focusing on the most profitable industries which would help to increase the business's overall profits. By realising the most popular demand of working jobs, I am able to focus advertisements entirely on Retail and Clerical audiences, this can then help to ensure I am bringing in or attracting a highly successful audience which will help to support my company's finances. ...read more.
