Giveaways typically have multiple purposes. They are a way to attract people to your booth, they provide a way for you to collect leads which hopefully turn into sales, and they are a way for you to promote your brand to prospective customers. However, these purposes can sometimes be at cross-purposes. Exhibiting at a tradeshow is expensive. Get the most from your tradeshow budget by not just driving “traffic” to you booth, but by driving “prospective customers” there.
In everything in life, you get what you pay for, and online printing services are no exception. Customer service became the final deal-breaker that caused me to choose just one of these services for all of my future online printing needs.
Every time you communicate for your company, you are wasting an opportunity if you don’t use your brand. Use letterhead PDFs for all your emailed documents to help keep your brand in front of your customers.
A marketing plan is critical to every company. If you don’t have a plan in place yet, commit to taking just one hour to create a “Minimalist Marketing Plan” so you can rely on more than just luck to make some sales and move forward.
Especially in these not-so-rosy economic times, marketing budgets must get as much return as possible. Don’t end your marketing planning with the call to action. Follow it through to the point where your goal is achieved.
