Grow your Business using Custom Designed Notepads

Legend has it that back in 1888, Thomas W. Holley of Holyoke, Massachusetts had the brilliant idea of taking scrap paper from various factories and stitching them together to make notepads.

The idea exploded. Today note pads are a major staple in homes and offices around the world.
The earliest incarnations of the notepad were at first bound using a stitching method similar to binding in books, but later evolved to include comb edging, glue edging and spiral binding. In fact, did you know that spiral bound notepads were so revolutionary that they were actually featured in an article in Popular Science magazine in 1934? Since then, the popularity, and design has continued to evolve.

Frequently, the most effective promotional items are often the simple pieces that customers use in their daily lives. Smart businesses purchase notepads in various shapes and colors, and tailor to suit the company brand, promote special events and attract new business.

  •  Sure, a stress ball or flashlight with a well designed logo attracts attention. But a well-designed notepad emblazoned with your business information is more than just a gimmick. It’s a simple, affordable advertising platform.
  • Every time a customer uses your note pad, they see your brand.
  • When they distribute notes to customers, family and friends, they are enhancing your immediate direct marketing campaign!
  • Notepads also have a variety of functions. They can be used for note taking, stationery, to do lists, travel scheduling, and more.

Creating memorable, multi-functional notepads is key. Think about how they will be used and work that into your design.

Best practices in marketing suggest using an integrated marketing approach. Use notepads, along with two or three other promotional ideas. Mix and match for best results.
Here are a few examples of how some companies are using note pads to promote their small business.

Digital On Demand Printing

What is Digital On Demand Printing?

Digital On Demand Printing (Lower Quantities): This option allows you to make a smaller order of just 100 postcards or other printed product.

  • Using toner and liquid ink, digital printing does not involve setting plates. When smaller quantities are needed, short run digital printing is the affordable choice.
  • Digital Printing technology accommodates the need to print only the amount you need on demand.

Exceptional Quality: You don’t want to sacrifice vibrant colors and print quality just because you need variable data or a short run printing job. Digital printing is the solution. Advanced color match capability ensures vibrant, accurate color.

 

Variable Data: This option allows you to personalize each piece for your targeted audience with their name and other specific information.

  • From a simple name and address to targeted campaigns specific to customer’s recorded buying behaviors, personalization improves response rates.
  • For example, in the image to the right, you can print unique coupon codes for tracking purposes.
  • Variable data printing can also include unique images, differing codes, identifiers, and copy.

Digital Printing Products include:

  • Business Cards
  • Post Cards
  • Catalogs and Booklets
  • Menus

Five 2015 resolutions we should keep

This being my last blog for 2014 I wanted to give some tips on some resolutions we should all keep for the New Year.

Five resolutions we should keep

As we turn the corner into 2015, we often reflect on what we would like to change or how we can make a positive impact. New Year’s resolutions are rarely carried out in practice, mostly because we like to eat good food and jogging isn’t exactly our cup of tea. There are, however, some resolutions we should all implement in 2015 – following through can empower us and fuel growth. Here are my top five resolutions for 2015:

Resolution no. 1: I will try a new marketing medium. I will examine my niche segments and enter the realm of postcard/social media/billboard/(enter yours here) marketing. I will make this effort in earnest, properly test my advertising, track my results and pursue success through intelligent decisions. Resolution no. 2: I will delegate more tasks. I will convince myself that I do not have to handle every aspect of my business; I must only manage it. I will free time to focus on innovation and growth in 2015 by placing time-consuming tasks in the hands of competent and loyal staff members.

Resolution no. 3: I will join a new business or networking group. I will focus on building relationships and helping others succeed, which will in turn bring success to me. I will listen to what others have to say more than I will speak, and I will be present and active in all group meetings.

Resolution no. 4: I will weed out the old and learn something new. I will put aside my feelings and determine what is not working for me – and drop it. In its place, I will learn something new I can put to good use.

Resolution no. 5: I will spend more time with my friends and family. These are the people who stand by me, inspire me, comfort me and the reason I do what I do.

 

Stick with these Resolutions and you should have a successful 2015 year in business and your personal relationships.

 

Stay safe and have a Happy New Year!

5 Keys to Gifting

5 Keys to Gifting This Holiday Season

imagesTBU9A5NS

This is the time of year that our thoughts turn to gifting. Gifting can mean many things for businesses: either holiday gifts to customers that have done business within the past year, or gifting to recognize employee year-end achievements. Companies are starting to look at purposeful, appropriate gifts for the audience and for the season.

Recognition vs. Year End Gifting at this time of year falls into two main categories: Recognition and Year-End. Recognition gifting is usually based on merit awards or department/company profitability. Year-end gifting is that gift which is given to employees or customers to thank them for service or loyalty throughout the year. You need to start at the beginning and decide exactly what type of gifting you will be doing this season. And if you are like most people, our guess is that you will be doing both!

Seasonality The change of seasons affects the type of gifts you might be giving this time of year. It is time to update company uniforms, anyway. You may have already begun the switch from short-sleeved polo shirts to long-sleeved –polo shirts. You may have begun the switch from windbreaker to fleece-lined zippered jacket.

When gift giving, you can use this change in apparel to express your appreciation. Warm Fleece Jackets is a great seasonal piece that won’t break the bank and makes a functional, attractive vehicle for your logo.

Relevance

This one might seem obvious, but it is easy to miss the mark on providing relevant gifts for your employees and customers. Your high-travel sales team might not appreciate a tower of chocolate goodies  as much as a quality garment bag or travel document holder/wallet. The chocolate tower might be perfect for the supporting office personnel.

Price The season of awards and gifting can be an expensive one. Not because of the item itself necessarily, but because this is the time of year you are giving in volume. But, don’t let price influence you to not make the best decision possible. You can provide larger quantities of gifts without having to over-extend yourself. Gift for the home or desk accessories are always a nice treat. Our Corporate Gifts category offers a variety of options across several price points. And don’t forget, gifts given in trade or businesses are tax deductible in part or whole.

Make the right impression

Lastly, this is the gifting opportunity to help you make the right impression. You might be sending a gift to a customer who only orders from you once a year, and you want to use this gift to encourage repeat and increased business. You might be rewarding that employee who hit their sales goals for the first time ever, and this gift will help you reinforce a spirit of success. Either way, you can make the right impression with your gift initially and then get residual value from that gift all year long based on its usability and visibility in the life of the recipient.

However you plan to gift this year now is the time to start thinking about it. Your budget should include the actual gift, packaging and presentation, and fulfillment (packaging labor, shipping costs, etc.). Take a look at some good-better-best options. And, if you weren’t already thinking about gifting for recognition or year-end…maybe you should.
