Quality signage can play a key role in any marketing effort. Signs, displays and banners that are designed to catch the eye and showcase a specific brand, product or feature can allow merchants and retailers to increase revenue and generate additional interest in specific products or services. Suppliers and providers who can offer a wider range of materials options can be an asset that no business owner can afford to overlook.
Poorly designed displays can find even the best quality products going unnoticed on store shelves and retail environments. Marketing a specific item or ensuring that services and promotional specials are more likely to stand out can be more challenging than many business owners might realize. The right promotional materials, signs and banners can make quite an impact on customers.
While digital marketing continues to grow in popularity, merchants and retailers who neglect conventional resources could be making a costly misstep. Proven marketing resources and methods still play an important role within the sales process and access to the right resources can be a very important concern. Dealing with a supplier who can offer a wider

After challenging your fears for a while, eventually you will not be experiencing any feeling of nervousness what so ever. Before coming out of your comfort zone you might be exaggerating what the consequences might will be after you have been pushing your boundaries a bit.

“Make the HEART of this people fat, and make their EARS heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their EYES, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed” Isa 6:10
“For this people’s HEART is waxed gross, and their EARS are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them” Mat 13:15
There are three dimensions of marketing: FrontDoor Marketing, BackDoor Marketing, and Supernatural Marketing. Much of what is known and practiced in the marketplace is FrontDoor Marketing! Very little is known of BackDoor Marketing and much less is known of Supernatural Marketing! In marketing generally, the “Eyes,” “Ears,” and “Heart,” of potential customers are the major targets of all marketing efforts!
These three targets hold the key to prosperity and lack for businesses and their products and/or services in the marketplace! If these three important targets of your potential customers are closed against your products and/or
Marketers, Advertisers, and Public Relations Professionals are constantly conceiving strategies that would make their sales grow. However, many a times these professionals start thinking more about their brand than the audience. Whereas, PR professionals might be thinking regarding the industry trends to find themselves a mention, while advertisers might be looking for ways to send a message to a greater audience at the cheapest price and Marketers might be busy building leads to serve the Sales department. All of them are making a mistake, though! They have forgotten the human being behind the screen; the human who is to buy their products and services. It is this human factor that should drive all their marketing efforts, including Public Relations and Advertisements. Rather than analyzing what went wrong after you set forth a marketing strategy, frame your strategies around the feelings of your target customer.
Take Human Psychology as a Guide
Not everyone in the audience is your target customer. So, the first thing to determine is who would buy your products. Who are they? Where do they live?
At a time when the whole world is turning from a huge screen to a much more compact version on their smartphones, it is time you make some improvements to your marketing strategies as well.

1. Know the transformation
First and foremost, you should be aware and understand the transformation that has rocked the world. Studies show that the future of marketing is mobile. People spend more time on their phones than in front of any other gadget.

2. Mobile app or mobile website
The current trend requires every company to create its own app in order to communicate with its customers. But, you

Social media, used
So if all great marketing is customer-centered then it makes sense for us to really understand as much as we can about our best customers. Enter marketing research.

If you’re interested in growing your business and have been looking for a solution for any amount of time, you’ve most likely heard somebody mention funnels.
If you aren’t using lead generation and sales funnels in your marketing – you’re throwing out a lot of time, energy and resources in your marketing efforts that most likely isn’t giving your much of a return on your investment… am I right?
What is a Funnel?
Funnel: A funnel (aka marketing funnel, lead generation funnel, sales funnel, etc.) is nothing more than a graphical representation of the customer life-cycle as a customer travels from prospect to lead to customer in your business.
What Does a Funnel Look Like?
Funnels can be laid out vertically like a traditional funnel with prospects entering at the top and customers coming out the bottom or they can be laid out horizontally with prospect entering the funnel on the left and customers popping out on the right.
Whichever option you prefer… both will allow you to track your customer’s path.
Why Is This Important?
The reason funnels are so
Small and Medium sized businesses are increasing globally. In Trinidad, they number in the range of 18,000 to 25,000 firms, contributing to 30% of our nation’s GDP. Despite this, US statistics state that over 50% of small businesses fail within the first year (1).
As a result, one of the major business growth challenges for SMEs is how to create greater visibility with limited funding. Here are my top four tips as a small business owner:
1. Become a digital and social networker – You cannot exist in the 21st century without some digital presence.
Even if you offer a service such as planning events or catering; building an online brand is critical in order to grow your business and reach more customers despite growing competition. For most firms this will mean creating a company website, utilizing the main social media platforms and in some instances incorporating the use of eCommerce.
What’s great here is that there are online platforms that can create FREE websites, blogs and social media pages.
As your business grows, you can pay monthly for advertising and your website
In order to market your services or products, you have to grab the attention of potential customers in the brief moment that you have their attention. It is crucial to find a way to grab a share of the market by standing out from your competitors. If you are looking for a new way to promote your services or business, you can use a promotional flag. Printing your message on such promotional flags is a great way to reach prospective customers and show them what you offer.
You can print the logo of your business on a high-quality fabric material. Promotional flags can draw the attention of many people due to bright colors and bold messages. Many types of flags are available. They include the following.
Tear drop flags
These flags are ideal for drawing the attention of people to outdoor events held in stadiums, car parks and storefronts. They can effectively convey your message in windy conditions because they are not affected by large gusts. These flags are also lightweight and sturdy. They come in
Don’t Buy on Looks Alone
If you are heading to a convention or trade show, your booth is a significant and worthwhile investment, but you need to choose your materials with care. Specialty finishes and processes can call attention to your booth, but a little goes a long way; invest in one or two “wow” features, but make sure you are not overspending on bling when more basic materials will do the job. Some products and supplies hold up better than others, and buying based on looks alone could end up costing you in the long run.
Don’t Overlook Ancillary Costs
Your booth and setup is more than just a pile of materials; it will need to be crated and shipped to every show you attend. From packing and freight to onsite labor costs, failing to calculate the true cost of exhibiting can destroy your marketing budget. A single show could eat up your marketing budget for the rest of the year if you are surprised by the extra costs involved in setting up; planning ahead with the most realistic estimates you can find can help
