Getting The Best Quality Marketing Material

When you want to use printed materials to promote your business, you need to ensure that you produce high quality materials. Whether it is brochures, postcards, or even business cards, you have to ensure getting high quality output. You would not want your business represented by a sloppy and badly printed material, right? People will look at your business the same way as your materials. If you present a cheap, low quality advertising that lacks attention to detail, people will assume that you will provide similar service. This is why you need to show quality and impressive image starting from your marketing materials. How do you do this?

Choose the best printer and work closely with them.

The first step to achieve good quality postcards or business cards is to communicate with your printer. Talk to them before you finalize your design. The common mistake of people is to wait until final printing to check on the design only to discover that the printer was not able to get the design that you want. This is why it is crucial to work closely with your printer. They will tell you the best paper, font, color, and printing option appropriate to your material. Ensure that the sample prints meet your quality standards, and that the printer will be able to meet your deadline. You would not want to receive your cards on the day of the trade show, only to find out that the quality is not what you expected.

Time Management Courses Its Objectives

Time management is not a new concept. The truth is people have been practicing time management even in ancient times whether they are aware of it or not but the term has been coined in modern times often to refer to techniques and strategies to help people use their time effectively.

In todays fast-paced world such strategies are necessary for everyone, whether students, stay-at-home moms, employees or business executives. It is no wonder, therefore, that demand for time management courses have grown.

One of the most important objectives of time management courses is to clarify the definition of time management, which creates the notion that people can control time when in fact it is a fixed resource that everyone has in equal amount. People cannot increase time or make it slow down, but they can change how they spend time. In other words, time management courses are about managing ones behavior with regards to time.

Innovation – It is Essential to Competitiveness

Numerous
forces, including a rapidly expanding marketplace (globalization)
leading to diversity among consumers, increasing competition, decreasing
budgets and personnel are as much at the heart of difficult challenges
confronting technology companies these days as the tight economy. Even
in the best of circumstances, staying competitive is more difficult than
ever. In the worst of situations it can feel down-right desperate.

The
“rise-and-fall” nature of today’s environment is evident all around us.
The secure, stable markets of yesteryear are rocked by disruptive
technological advances and increased competition while small start-ups
rise seemingly unchallenged, to great heights. Why? The conditions that
determine competitive advantages are changing at an unmatched velocity.
Creativity and innovation are the keys to the success of organizations
in bracing up to and rising above these challenges.

After three
decades of dismissing product innovation with claims that it doesn’t
increase the bottom line, many companies have now come to the conclusion
that ongoing product innovation is the
essential factor for organizational success. The former attitude comes
about in no small part because history abounds in examples of
organizations that have expended tremendous amounts of money and effort
on product innovation programs that had little direct value in the
marketplace.

Are Energy Companies and Brand Marketing Strategy Like Oil and Water

Every so often, an oil company experiences an environmental catastrophe of disastrous proportions. As evidenced by the recent Gulf oil spill, the Exxon Valdez oil spill and countless other eco-disasters, these occurrences are a tragic occupational hazard of the energy industry. In theory, they should not be a surprise — anymore than an earthquake in California would be a shocker. Of course, a big enough tremor in Los Angeles will generate nationwide news coverage. The question from a brand marketing standpoint is simple: is there anything oil companies can do, given the probability of an oil spill?

In order to answer this question, it is helpful to back up and look at the consumers’ view of the industry. When it comes to the consumer, oil companies have a unique advantage over, say, a perfume company. This is that the oil companies offer a necessity. Everyone needs oil; perfume is a luxury.

From a branding and marketing standpoint, this advantage actually has negative connotations. The oil companies are really big and really profitable — even when the economy is in the proverbial toilet. In the deep recession year of 2009, when almost everyone was suffering financially, the oil companies made billions of dollars in profits. A 2006 FTC study of gas price manipulation found that the record increases in gasoline prices were “not substantially attributable to higher costs.” It seems the oil companies always take advantage of their financial opportunities with no regard to consumer goodwill. These companies are often viewed as monopolistic, money-grubbing, price-gouging, predatory goliaths. In a 2008 Harris poll of 20 major industries, only the tobacco industry had a lower rating than the oil companies on the topic of how good or bad a job they perform in serving the needs of consumers.

Key Marketing Indicators And Tracking Your Marketing Strategy

A great way to look at your key marketing indicators to understand whether your marketing strategy is working or not is to look at your sales revenue in relation to your key marketing indicators listed below. If your sales are up-it is working. If your sales are down-it is not.

However, this is not enough. Sales revenue alone gives you no feeling for your marketing dynamics and provides no way to focus on the key elements of your marketing operation. Try creating a marketing funnel by looking at the following starting at the top and working your way down the funnel:

1. The size of your market as a whole.
2. What part of the market you cover with your marketing activities.
3. How much of your market coverage can be converted into interested potential buying customers?
4. Measure how many of those potential buying customers actually convert into customers.
