will advertising on Council tax bills be toxic for your business

  • The only problem with this is people have very negative thoughts when they open the  Council Tax bill and any company advertising will find residents less likely to use them.
  • If my test is anything to go by.
  •  Residents were shown a sample bill with advertisements on the back and asked what they thought and every person had an instant dislike of that company
  • It is thought the association with a company and a council tax bill is toxic for any business as people have instant negative thoughts  aassociated with the company advertising.
