  • Hi Ben, you don’t mention the price of the course anywhere. 🙂

    Oh so true. 🙂

  • Have you ever thought how many other ways could your employer/clients use your skills?

    • Please give me some examples of this, Stuart.

    • Hi Nigel, if Deloitte is correct, 80% of people in work are dissatisfied with their job. One of the reasons is a lot of people are being asked to work on things that they are not interested in, not very good at, not suited for etc. Like playing Wayne Rooney in goal. But don’t leave the heavy lifting to your employer, start thinking what else you…[Read more]

    • Thanks for this, Stuart. From a marketing point of view, it is surprising how often clients are oblivious of additional services that the supplier offers. Which is strange, given the emphasis on new business development (which, all too often, equates to cold calling). Brochures, catalogues (printed and in PDF format) an e-newsletter, mailshots etc…[Read more]

  • Are we too concerned about looking professional that we obscure our true selves?

    My wife was concerned that her love of dogs should definitely be kept separate from her professional side. As it turned out a company saw something on her personal information that encouraged them to seek her out professionally.
    Maybe our true passions should…[Read more]

    • Interesting point. I know a number of people who are intensely private online. In extreme cases, you won’t find them online at all (even if they own a business). At the next level, they would not wish to upload a photograph of themselves for social media profiles. Many people are reluctant to reveal anything about their personal lives – which I…[Read more]

    In my opinion it’s like asking: What’s more important production or delivery? One without the other is pointless. I like the explanation that marketing is everything that leads up to an opportunity to sell. 🙂

  • Are Your Guarantees As Good As They Could Be?

    Consider all the barriers you must help your prospects overcome before they’ll know, trust and like you enough to buy from you.

    Trust is possibly the biggest one of those barriers.

    Guarantees have long been a tried and tested method of reducing the barrier based on the prospect not knowing you w…[Read more]

  • The quick way to create a print colour guide…

    Hi there,

    If you are a reasonably sized company no doubt you already have a robust colour guide to call upon when dealing with various print suppliers.

    They need to know what colours and densities they are matching to and YOUR guide is the best way to show them.

    Every printer’s Pantone Guide for…[Read more]

    I think I need to speak to you about this at my Friday network event. 🙂

    Am I right in thinking that the free WordPress sites don’t allow plugins and therefore you can’t put a capture form on them?

  • 3 reasons you must understand a printer’s plant list

    Hi there,

    The first thing I ask of a new supplier (whether they are a printer or print finisher) is: Can I see your plant list?

    Sounds pretty boring, right?

    The thing is, you should only ask to see a supplier’s plant list if you understand what you’re looking for.

    This is what I want…[Read more]

  • When’s the best time to call your printer?

    Hi there,

    I wonder how many concepts and ideas thought up by designers and marketing teams never get past the bin. Some would obviously be the wrong solution but some may have just been too expensive to implement. It’s possible that a lot of those just needed a tweek here and there to make them via…[Read more]

    Hi David – I’ll be sure to post a reminder about a week prior to the next one. Be good to meet you. 🙂
