  • Building Your Brand Through a Social Mission

    How to Position Your Brand to Appeal to Consumers? I was lucky enough to write an article for Factory Direct Promos, that was published on Brand Quarterly. If you are not familiar with them, they are an online magazine that focuses on brand building. The thing I love about them, other than the high quality of articles that offer actionable tips, is that they understand branding is woven into the fabric of a business. Branding does not stand alone nor does it exist in a funnel. It is a function of the entire enterprise. With that thinking in mind, today I want to share a bit about building your brand, through a social mission. You already offer a great product or service, but the thing is your competitors do, too. If you are looking for a way to distinguish your brand and add appeal, your brand should be on a social mission. Selecting and working toward a cause can give your brand purpose that appeals to your employees and consumers. Defining a social mission is a way to engage your employees and customers, and it can give your brand a serious edge over your competitors.

  • How to Create Standout Convention Bags

    When the convention center doors open and the day gets rolling, potential customers will flood the scene, scanning for which brands stand out as they look for the best promotional products they can get their hands on. Convention bags are an easy way to spread brand awareness to potential customers directly at the point of contact, with the hope that your message continues to spread through word of mouth as the bag continues to be used. Of course, there will be a focus on which brands are providing quality giveaways. But, offering a reliable, eye-catching promotional product for attendees to carry their other new gear in for the rest of day can deliver a return-on-investment long after the event ends. Creating a set of convention bags that people will flock to your booth for can be made possible by following these three steps.
