Forbes lists what’s being bought


This top ten list will be much more useful than a David Letterman effort as far as broadcast sales teams are concerned. Forbes has come up with a list of ten items that are still earning their keep from increasingly tightwad and nervous consumers. Perhaps competitors in these fields will want to buy some time on your station.

Forbes top ten items consumers are still buying

* Smart phones

* Video games/consoles

* Gym memberships

* Personal care items

* Toy building sets/blocks

* Car maintenance (a must if not buying a new car)

* Dress casual shoes (multipurpose)

* Restaurants (especially on the lower end)

* Movie tickets

* Netbooks/mini laptops
