What Buyers Want…

»Posted by on Oct 26, 2010 in CNY Post | Comments Off on What Buyers Want…

I read a recent article from Advantages Magazine that gave some really cool info on what customers are looking for from their ad specialty supplier. Like… “92% of buyers say their budgets for 2011 will stay the same”. Thats at least a promising sign of the future. The survey conducted by Advantages Magazine showed that 72% of buyers are looking for creativity from their distributors. Thank goodness for my degree in Advertising, Production and Design, whew! Of those sruveyed 26% will purchase directly from manufacturers, so anyone who can produce and manufacture products in house will stanbd a slightly better chance of aquiring and holding onto new customers, or old ones for that matter. The most effective advertising as chosen by the...

Local Artist Opens Gallery…and Is Having a Show!

I guess that’s one of the good things about growing up; you learn to appreciate certain things more. For me, one of those things is art. I would give anything to go back to my freshman year and actually pay attention and learn in my art class, but unfortunately I can’t.
