Such a festive holiday as St. Patrick’s Day calls for sales and more sales. The color green alone represents generosity and being practical, both characteristics encompass what a sale is. Why not use this fun holiday to encourage and invite customers into your business? 

Marketing your business in one way or another for St. Patrick’s Day can only present benefits. It allows your business another chance to push your business locally, gain awareness, and of course continue to grow. Sitting back and not jumping at chances to market will only bring setbacks and failure. What’s great about marketing is it can be effective without overspending. Our printing prices are among the lowest online, but still possess professional quality. In this blog i discuss three products. Whether you use one or all, they make for a terrific ROI.

The first product that comes to mind is our Standard Business Card. This product is perfect for in-house coupons. Let’s say a customer visits your restaurant or any business for that matter and purchases from you. Pile onto their great experience by giving them an incentive to come back soon with a coupon. Get festive by using a bright green color along with the offer of your choice. We offer 4:4 color printing across all of our business cards. Place images, text, and vibrant colors without any worries or hassles.

The next product i want to introduce is our 15pt card stock Postcards. I suggest using our EDDM to send out postcards to your surrounding local community. Reach out as far as 5 miles, all the way down to a quarter of a mile away from your business. 

This service is undoubtedly efficient and effective and can target potential customers that are not aware of your business. Placing a discount or coupon on your postcard will only increase the likelihood of first time customers stopping by. Why is this? It’s close to their residency, appealing quality, and of course the incentive. 

Last but certainly not least is our posters. Made on professional paper stock and finished with a soft layer of our 100lb aqueous gloss, these posters are one-of-a-kind. We also offer six unique sizes to fulfill your needs and expectations. Posters are a great marketing tool because they allow you to reach mass audiences. Not only will you receive that, but you also will be saving big on printings finest. Extend your reach, be catchy, and grab attention with the product that demands to be seen. St-Patrick's-Day-16

One of my pet peeves is when a small business owner tries to pack everything they can possibly think of into their brochure, then they sit back and wonder why their brochure isn’t earning the return on investment they’d hoped for.

You see, they mistakenly believe brochures are printed to inform customers.

The fact is that brochures are not tidy little information-givers.  They’re marketing tools and should be strategically designed as such.  That’s why less is more when it comes to printing brochures:  less clutter, more sales.

Your brochure should have a singular and definitive goal, and that goal should be designed before you jot down the first line of copy.  Your goal might be to motivate customers to call you for a demo, visit a website, sign up for a newsletter, make a purchase or visit your retail location.  You can answer all their questions when they follow up.

This isn’t to say you shouldn’t give any information; but it does mean you should only tell your customers what they need to know in order to be motivated to take the next step in the purchasing process.

Tell your customers:

  • How your product or service will make life easier and better, and solve a problem
  • Why your product, service and company is the best solution
  • Any supporting data to that end
  • Why now is the time to buy with a time-limited coupon offer
  • What to do next

Anything else is extraneous information that gets in the way of your marketing pitch.  Naturally, each of these points manifests itself differently for every individual company and campaign.  One company might promote itself as trustworthy because it is a family business with decades of experience, while another in the same industry might promote its trustworthiness by explaining the benefits of a new cutting-edge technology.  Put yourself in your customers’ shoes to determine what would motivate you to buy.  That’s what your brochure should contain, and nothing more.

Ask yourself:  Is this information going to help me make a sale?  Why?  Justify every aspect of your brochure by demonstrating how it will help you make sales; if a block of text or design element has no sales purpose, cut it.  Don’t let your pride get in the way of profits.

Employ your graphic design prowess to draw customers in to your key selling points, offer, and call to action; but don’t clutter.  White space is inviting space, it helps customers focus their attention, and it’s comfortable.  It can be your best design and marketing tool because it frames your other elements, without the need for frames.

The fact that we live in an increasingly technological world is not a groundbreaking idea to most. This trend, of course, also applies to the business world. It is an undeniable fact that almost all data, including contact details, are stored electronically nowadays. Regardless of how technologically-based business has become, the fact remains that plain old business cards can still be relevant.

Below are some reasons why business cards are still important even in 2012:

Business Cards Increase Name Recall

Simple truth: Human beings (this includes your potential customers) does increase the chances of being remembered – no matter the actual physical layout of the card or what kind of work you’re in. Wouldn’t you rather see a customer walking away with your business card than walking away with nothing? Business cards really do help a person stand out and be relevant.

Business Cards Are Easier to Hand Out in Large Crowds

Given the technological savvy of most consumers these days, business cards should theoretically have been phased out. After all, you could simply store names, addresses, and phone numbers on your phone now. As is true with a lot of other ideas that SEEM like they should be true, this is not always the case. Storing numbers electronically is fine when on a one-on-one setting. But imagine the horror should you find yourself somewhere like a business convention. Who has the time to store every number in your phone? And after it’s all said and done, would you even remember who these new friends are with nothing but a name and a number to help you?

With business cards, you can continue giving your pitch to that important investor without that awkward pause whenever he tries to type in your contact info into his smartphone – he could do that at a later time like, you know, when you’re done talking.

You can literally throw business cards around a convention and someone will surely pick one up. While that last statement sounds ridiculous (and not something I’d recommend you try; but hey, they’re your business cards so do whatever you want with them), I’d say it’s still better than introducing yourself one person at a time hoping someone actually stores your number for reference.

But if you’re all about technology – you know, the kind that can barely watch TV shows on a TV anymore, fret not. Business cards can be modern too…

Business Cards Can Be Customized to Fit Your Market

Your business cards don’t have to be dull. Try to be creative so you can have business cards that are custom built for your customers. You can print business cards in custom shapes. You’d be surprised by the variety of business cards out today. Again, you are only limited by your imagination. Use your cards, not only to provide contact information, but to also promote your company and brand.

Business Cards Are Good for SEO

I know how much marketers have thrown the term “SEO” around and for good reason. These days, almost everything is done online. Even if you’re not running an e-commerce business, there’s a good chance you still have an online presence (you should have at least a Facebook page). Having those URLs in your business cards will help boost your inbound traffic.

There you have it. These are just a few of the reasons why business cards are important.

You’ve heard of the elevator speech.

That’s when you have from 30 seconds to one minute to pitch your organization, your product or yourself to a policy maker, venture capitalist or potential employer.  It may not occur on an actual elevator.  But savvy CEOs, entrepreneurs and salespeople commonly practice their elevator speeches and use it in business and their personal life.

A business card is like an elevator speech, except you only have about 3 seconds to define yourself and your value proposition.

Three…seconds.  Probably less time than it took you to read the preceding paragraph.

And in those three seconds you have to convey who you are and what you stand for.  A tough assignment.

Most business is still conducted face-to-face.  If you fail at the moment you hand someone your business card, the consequences can be dire.

Most business cards are pretty boring.  They don’t have to be.  How do we communicate something serious in a way that is memorable yet whimsical, makes a point but isn’t frivolous?

Cartoons.
Screen shot 2012-03-01 at 7.35.30 AM

A cartoon is a very effective means of communication.  It makes an instant impression.  Gapingvoid business card cartoon art is designed to open doors and initiate a conversation with people.  Face-to-face.

Use a cartoon to make that first impression.  You might not get a second chance.

Choose a cartoon and add personal details to create your own gapingvoid business card.

A mini business card looks like the regular business cards cool and hip little brother. It’s a smaller, sleeker version of the business card that lives in the pockets and wallets of small business owners, graphic designers, creative professionals, young entrepreneurs, and just about anyone else who likes their business cards to stand- out from the crowd.

We thought that it was about time that Overnight Prints made something that talked about ourselves as a company and about the things that differentiate us from our competitors. But we didn’t want this video to be a typical corporate affair with a man in a suit telling people how great our company is! Instead, we wanted to make something that really speaks to our designer and small business customers about our quality printing, our fast delivery service, and our green company policies.

I’ve had a lot of design customers telling me that they’ve been using our Calendar designer to create a really easy and cost-effective custom design portfolios to send to clients and agencies! I tried it out for myself, and it works great!!

Creating print booklets of your work for self-promotional purposes can be expensive. Especially if your plan is to distribute them between multiple clients and agencies. Although, fancy bound booklets look great, it’s just not practical to create more than 2 or 3 copies. Especially if you’re on a tight budget.
