Marketing has some interesting ideas for television commercials. TV - isn't that a bit too expensive for us? Whafs wrong with advertising in the papers, as usual? Quite frankly. it's just not enough anymore. We need to be more aggressive in order to keep ahead of our competitors. Will we be able to afford all this? I'll took into it, but I think higher costs will be justified. These investments will result in higher profits for our company. We'll have to look at these figures more closely.
