    A friend of mine was telling me that he uses a 3% of his gross for advertising direct mail. So he does 700k a year thats 21k in direct mail, that sounds abit high to me, what do you have to say about that? do you track it or just throw some cash at it inconsistently?

    We spend a total of 10% plus on our advertising. 5% is for franchise advertising royalty and about 7% local advertising. We carefully track all of our advertising to determine what does and does not work.
