Instant Images- poof!


When I was a kid, I loved I Dream of Jeannie; the idea that a wink or a nod could instantly produce change seemed fun. Frequently we receive a frantic call some a client with a last minute branding challenge. It's great when we can suggest a solution to fit everyone- INSTANTLY! No sizing required and a low cost solution, just like Jeannie!

At our recent showcase, one of the hits came from our friends at Suntex who featured numerous ways to connect with individuals from work to leisure, but a top pic was instant image.



Easy as 1-2-3!


What can you do with Instant images?

  • Do you have a collection of images to feature?
  • Maybe you need to brand volunteers for the day, but won't have the final list too late to order tee shirts or polo shirts?  
  • A group on tour or needing a pass to enter?
  • Will call pass?
  • Alumni identification?
  • Personalize names for event?  Yes
  • Unique shapes- not a problem!

Part 2- Secrets Behind Team Success



Teamwork- how many times that word required in my lifetime? Many! It's not a new word or concept; individuals have been picking teams from red rover to baseball for years. Group projects in an education environment are also not a new concept. I will be the first to admit I hated group work in school; teachers assigned teams and there was always a weak link. However, the word team seems to have reached an elevated status in the workplace. 

In the modern office environment teamwork is often defined as 2 or more people tasked with a common goal; brainstorming ideas. By collaborating on the shared task, solutions are provided from collective input from the team.  Collaboration is one of our core words, because it's a key ingredient to campaign success. 

My oldest son played football in college. He once stated that his team was only as strong as the weakest link. He'd seen that by assisting the player he liked the least, a glory hog, the ball advanced. Helping him be properly positioned on a play, created the potential for success in the moment and offered then future opportunities to score. 

In order for a team to be effective collaborating there must be a blend of talents and perspectives, as well as trust and respect among the team members. If individuals don't feel valued for their contribution, then why contribute? Dominant personalities will always make sure their input is heard, while more introverted members of the team may need to be asked to share. 

When your office has only 4 people, the ship either rows together or it sinks together. One of the many things Keith and I enjoy about owning our own business is the ability to pivot anytime. If a process needs tweaking, there is no need for numerous meetings or memos- we talk as a group and implement a new strategy.

While each member of our team has titled roles and individual space to work, picking up the client's needs along the processing journey is a little like successfully passing the baton in a relay. The more we know the timing and rhythm of our teammate, the better equipped we are to  execute a task once it's handed off in the process. We all have our strengthens and weakness as individuals. Working together effectively as a team requires we pick up or slow down our pace to make sure we have smooth transitions. A smooth hand-off also requires repetition and communication; a rhythm that develops over time. 

Communication is key- 
  • Establishing, where are we in the process?
  • What do we need to know before interacting with our client?
  • Do we have the details needed for a quote or the right files mock up the order?  
  • Have we appropriately shared the options and assessed the timeline for an upcoming campaign? 
  • Do we know what's critical from the supplier before placing an order? 
  • When should we check on the status of an order in the production process?
Who's our internal crew?

Me- I am usually your initial face to the business. I love generating new ideas and considering ALL the options; after-all there is talking and creativity involved. If I even look at technology, it malfunctions; it's a gift. By the way, I love fried chicken, mashed potatoes and biscuits.

Keith- understands safety like no one else on the team, he takes care of all of the non- glamorous sides of the business which are critical tasks, including: special deliveries, trash patrol, accounting and compliance.  He usually partners with Miranda to try to figure out what I've done to my computer! He loves Mediterranean food. 

Miranda- hates fried chicken and bacon, but loves Taco Bell and ice cream! Her fingers are super fast on a computer; whether a search, a quote or creating art. She is always game for a work-walk and she is great with math; lucky for me. 

Sara- tends to like citrus flavors, loves plants and nature- both animals and the great outdoors. She's the quieter one of our bunch at work. She's always on time and is the queen of spreadsheets and our web stores- a master with all those fine details.

Our team rows together! We share ideas, we learn from one another, we support each other and our teamwork helps our clients receive the best result.

Lickity Split Just Got Better!

I read a quote in the Triangle Business Journal this week from Ted Abernathy, managing partner of Economic Leadership, an economic strategy company. As part of a panel with the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, Ted's comments were around the increasing expectation for pace in business. Abernathy said, " Remember when next week was OK? We want it now. Not five minutes from now, but NOW."

Business services in numerous industries offer services ranging from instant, to 1 hour, same day, next day; there is no lack of express options. In our last post we covered how we prepare our clients for a positive result when they have a rush, but we did not delve into selecting quality partners.

Part 1- Behind the Scenes

What are examples of the devil in the details?

A client wanted to re-order an umbrella, the style previously purchased was no longer an option. We showed them a couple choices, instead they selected an umbrella from one of the supplier sites we'd shared; we advised them to look back at our suggestions. Why? This client needs to print in PMS match colors and multi-color imprint for adhering to their brand guide. By switching them to the umbrella we suggested we were able to save them over $300.00 on the order. Removing PMS match charges, multiple set up fees, run charges per color; plus the name brand piece was a lower unit cost.


It happens around 25% of the time, an order needs to be processed with our Partners Quick Turn Service. A client needs shirts embroidered by next Friday, but they also wanted to see samples first. Because we have a showroom, we did not need to order samples, instead we delivered a couple choices to them on Friday to compare and select for order processing on Monday. Additionally we pro-actively shared the digitized file with the decorator to make sure no edits would be required; making this process seamless and quick. Once the order is placed Monday, the shirts will arrive on Thursday, just in time to look sharp for a group event on Friday.


ART! By offering our clients expert and experience design services, we save time and produce better results. On of our local school partners will be partnering with us for floor mats at entrances for safety, signage to direct students and parents towards upcoming events as well as school procedures. Many of our clients think the want their products designed one way, but once they see choices they realize they want something completely different. By having Miranda and Sara work through design work BEFORE placing orders, we can save them time and money. How? Supplier proofs are a double-check. The proof from the supplier is meant to check that the file is correct and it's loading correctly for imprinting; it's not the time to edit the art file. Why? Our supplier partners process 1,000's of orders a day. When edits at the proofing stage are required there are usually fees for those changes and it adds to the production time line, which means orders may not arrive when needed because the supplier is not able to put the order into the production queue.

This weekend is the Got to be NC Festival and Burke Brothers Hardware has a booth to promote their store, located across from the Raleigh Fairgrounds, as your source and expert team for "everything". In fact they say, "If you can't find it at Burke's, it doesn't exist". While the tent design seems simple and the product straight-forward, we were able to compare tent options and accessories between suppliers. Miranda was able to show the owners several design choices before going into production. The result was a tent that "pops" outside.


More stories? A few are on our website, however our team has loads more stories woven into blog posts, white paper education materials and testimonials. Details Matter!

We are Raleigh's local and independent hardware store. Family owned & operated since 1936, Burke Brothers has been featured in Southern Living Magazine & Our State Magazine as one of the best hardware stores of North Carolina.

The Devil's In The Details

I'm with my youngest son, he felt knowledge should have a practical application. In elementary school he was often frustrated by the requirement to learn things he deemed useless- like the name of clouds. He said, "I am not going to be a weatherman, so why do I need to know the difference between stratus and cumulus clouds; can't I just say puffy and long skinny clouds?" Parents often find when they don't know how to respond, responses come from their roots. I started to reply something my dad would say, "learning things you think you don't think you need to know builds a foundation for higher learning or don't discount knowledge you think is irrelevant, it's relevance will come up later". In that moment I remembered those statements were shared when I was failing algebra; I still hate algebra. Instead I told my son, "I agree."

Don't misunderstand, there is a value to learning. Mastering easier concepts before moving to more challenging material is necessary. However, I don't think I need to be an expert at everything; like my youngest child only what's relevant to my world of challenges.

I choose to save my brain for things that matter! What matters in my world?

I've always had a gift for recalling where and when I purchased items or who gave it to me- clothing, things around the house. In fact, I can tell you how much I paid for the item too. As a kid I learned if my mom and I were on the hunt for an item, like your iPhone, I stored images and prices from store to store in my head. Is it really amazing that for the past 12 years I've enjoyed researching and comparing product options? It's not uncommon when we are tasked with finding an item that is not a regular request for Miranda to ask me, "who have we seen at shows you think we should check?". While she and Sara have great recall too, I generally am the one that remembers odd details, responding with, "yeah don't you remembers the booth in the back corner of that show 4 years ago, let's check that line; I've got a list." ( Another weird quirk, I save our paper line lists, even the expired ones- still great resources!)



How is this blog post relevant to you? 

  • An e-commerce partner lists post all their products offered on their site. 
  • You select items, compare options based on descriptions, look for e-calculators to get estimates, load your cart, upload your logo, enter a credit card and make a purchase. 
  • Some sites are more sophisticated offer live chat buttons for customer services; but the result is the same- purchase what we have decided to show you; hopefully your art file works. 
 ____________Why do we choose to be different?
  • We choose not to be e-commerce 
  • Our clients have been re-educated to know that a huge value we offer is our ability to navigate your choices, make sure your art will work for the imprint, stock is available, there are no hidden costs, production and shipping time will meet your in hands date, products are safety compliant and quality matches your expectation based on the e-image
  • Assurance- we partner with suppliers that like us care about your outcome, your satisfaction.
  • Sure, we have a website store, but often it does not have the best match for what you are seeking or it may not feature a product you are seeking because it's a "window" into offerings
  • The suppliers featured on our site are a narrow window to what we offer, which cannot include custom; it's custom. There are West Coast, East Coast, Overseas-Direct, American Made, HUB suppliers, Union Made, Eco- Manufacturers....the list is long for ways to match objectives.
  • Besides- "the devil is in the details"......knowing how to avoid pitfalls takes experience. 

Follow the upcoming posts through the coming week to learn the value of what happens behind the scenes for you!

A Smart Marketer’s Secret Weapon

As Promotional Products WORK! Week draws to a close I have a few final notes.

Did you know promotional products are one of the oldest forms of advertising? In fact, the first known use of promotional items in the U.S. dates all the way back to George Washington’s presidential election in 1789. Fast-forward to more than 200 years later and what was once considered the most simplistic of marketing tools has become the industry’s most versatile form of advertising — which is ultimately where its power lies.

Many advertisers understand that promotional products are essential to building brand loyalty and awareness, with 65 percent citing promotional products as highly effective in reaching consumers and contributing to brand recall, according to a study by Promotional Products Association International (PPAI). This week my posts have focused on the staying power and industry research that proves the  influence tangibles have as an effective advertising medium. We've focused on the why behind the products- leveraging the greatest reach, drive recall and resonate to engage the best reaction among consumers, relative to any other advertising vehicle.

Our clients know the power behind the why- they see their branding dollars cultivating positive reactions, consumers keeping their branded gifts and warmth in starting business relationships with a response of “thank you” when received by target consumers.

While it is the oldest form of advertising, the promotional products industry has also proven to be the most fluid and the most meaningful. For example, take Starbucks’ recent U.S. Sign Language store opening. The coffee shop took elements of its store design, their offerings and reinvented them to be more effective for those who are deaf. This included special green aprons featuring "Starbucks" spelled out with ASL finger-spelling imagery and "I Sign" pins to designate employees who know ASL. This approach to promotional products combined with purpose strengthened the overall impact of the launch in a way that no other form of advertising could TOUCH.



New technologies regularly being integrated into promotional marketing strategies making this a pivotal time for our industry. Our anniversary showcase next week was designed to provide our client base the tools they need to stay on top of trends that are adapting and progressing with consumers’ changing lifestyles, interests and purchasing behaviors.



What’s next? Our team pumps up the value of our industry as an advertising medium, but it also fits our profile. This advertising medium is inherently practicality and flexibility, without boundaries and continues to evolve along with the modern-day consumer; just like our dedicated team. Follow our next series of stories and we go further behind the scenes to the extra value provided by our team for you!

Numbers Don't Lie


The Carolina Hurricane's hockey team is trying to hang on in the series to continue in the play offs. In sports the audience can see your performance, while the game might be entertaining to watch, ask any avid fan it's the final score that makes the difference; numbers don't lie. Either you won or you lost.

Check out these stat's:

79% of buyers use promotional products in standalone campaigns.
83% of consumers are more likely to do business with the advertiser after receiving a promotional product.  88% of the next gen looked up the company after receiving a promotional product.
89% of consumers have received a promotional product in the last six months.
9 in 10 consumers recall the branding on a promotional product.
8 in 10 consumers recall the messaging.
88% of the next gen had a more favorable impression of the advertiser after receiving a promotional product.
82% of consumers own 1-10 promotional products.
81% keep promotional products for more than a year.
78% keep promotional products in their home.
55% of next gen keep promotional products on or with them.


What good are impressive numbers if you don't know where to apply them? 

I heard a news report recently discussing how early fans set up to tailgate for a game.



For many fans, tailgating before the game is just as important as the action on the field. A University of Minnesota study recently confirmed this when it found that 1 in 5 fans tailgate before the game. For a serious tailgater, the food, beverages and atmosphere have to be just right. To make the most of your pre-game party, our partner at PCNA highlighted five essentials that every respectable tailgater needs to make this a winning season.

1. Get Comfortable
 
If you're arriving at the stadium 4 hours before the game, it's going to be a long day so you'll want to conserve your energy. Sturdy, compact and comfortable seating is an absolute must for any serious tailgater. Folding chairs that pack into a carrying bag are ideal for easy transportation, set up and pack up. Look for handy features such as cup holders or a detachable canopy.

2. Equip Yourself with Tools of the Trade
 
The grill is the centerpiece of any tailgate and the grill master is arguably the most important person there. He or she needs the right tools to transport and cook the food that will fuel fans for the day. A BBQ set complete with apron and utensils is a must, but don't forget about handy accessories like coolers, wine totes and bottle openers.

3. Take Care of Your Beverages
 
No tailgate is complete without beverages, so you better make sure you have the right drinkware. Stadium cups are all-time favorites for beer and soft drinks, but there are other options to consider. Wine drinkers love the Corzo Vacuum Insulated Cup and morning tailgaters appreciate an insulated travel mug that will keep their coffee hot for hours. If you need an insulated travel mug for your morning coffee that doubles as a can insulator for later in the day, the Sherpa is your go-to item. 

4. Don't Forget The Tunes
 
No party is complete without music. You can drain your battery by blasting your car stereo, but a better option is a durable outdoor Bluetooth speaker. These tailgate-ready speakers are available in a range of price points and sound great, even if they get bumped or wet. 

5. Be Prepared For Mother Nature
 
lightweight jacket is a life saver when the weather gets cool or the skies open up and pour rain. For ultimate convenience, choose one that packs into its own pocket. Throw a few in your trunk for emergencies and you'll be ready for any weather situation that pops up outdoors. Bring extra and your less-prepared guests will thank you.

The Bottom Line
 
With the right gear, your tailgate party will be the perfect way to get ready for the game.

Why Promotional Products Work (Hint: They’re More Than Just Products)


Today's post is a guest column from our industry member, PPAI; which stands for Promotional Products Association International. I'd share the author, but could not find the person to credit- but enjoy the post anyway!

If you, like millions of others, watched this year’s Super Bowl for more than the game, you know the power of advertising backed by money and research; companies pitch brands and slogans that attempt to leave a lasting effect on the consumer. Many like to believe those messages don’t have much impact, but evidence overwhelmingly points to the power of persuasion.

It may be subtle, but persuasion by advertisers shows levels of success that prove television, radio, mobile and digital can—and do—draw consumers to their brands. They must compete not only with each other across traditional and digital media for the hearts, minds and dollars of the consumer, but they must compete with outside stimuli once the consumer walks away from the television, shuts down the computer or drives past a billboard.

What does leave a lasting impression is the promotional product. A $23.3 billion industry, promotional products are designed for staying power, and industry research has proven their power as an effective advertising medium.

PPAI studies conducted among media buyers and consumers reveal new insights into promotional products’ value and effectiveness. Of the consumers surveyed who could recall receiving a promotional product in the previous 12 months, 88 percent could recall the name of the advertiser and 85 percent have done business with an advertiser as a result of receiving an item.

Imagine being able to craft a message one time, and see that message spread to an audience of hundreds, thousands and even millions. Now imagine that message being delivered by a t-shirt, a pen or a beverage cup. Promotional products professionals work with Fortune 500 companies and top ad agencies to create experiences people love through a product they can actually use.

The same studies by PPAI report that 82 percent of respondents possess at least one and as many as 10 promotional items, with 81 percent keeping them because they are useful. What’s more, 53 percent said they use these products at least once a week and even more—47 percent—said they keep promotional products for more than a year.

Powerhouse advertisers aren’t the only ones who earn a mighty piece of the advertising pie; from mom-and-pop to mid-sized companies, promotional products professionals apply evidence-based technical expertise to deliver the hottest products and production techniques to their clients’ campaigns, improving their reach and boosting their bottom lines as well.

What comes to mind when you think of the color PINK? How about a red lapel ribbon? Or a yellow wristband? Promotional products work because they leave a lasting impression in the hearts, minds and hands of recipients. The messages live on because the products are memorable, unique and personal. They are the only sensory medium that gives the consumer a tangible memory of a relationship to the brand. Promotional products are shown to build communities of likeminded consumers with a shared sense of brand loyalty.
