Here at Quintain, we help create and set up artwork for our clients’ promotional product needs. This can be anything from a simple one-color logo placement on a tote, to a more complex wrap for a Bluetooth speaker system. The design itself aside, there are a lot of factors that go into how promotional product artwork is set up on the backend. Overall this tends to include color, formatting, typography and graphics.

In the world of marketing, much of the talk is central to inbound and content creation. These are fantastic strategies to leverage in order to engage with target consumers and establish brand credibility.

However, there are other activities you can pair with these efforts in order to make your overall marketing strategy more effective. Especially since it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract the attention of prospects and hold their interest for a long period of time, partially due to the influx of information and readily available content.

Success When Aligned With Your
Promotional Distributor 

Last year was a good year for Quintain Marketing. Our orders were up and so was our revenue and profitability. I felt good about what we accomplished, but it wasn’t until I was speaking with a key client this week while scheduling our 2014 marketing planning meeting that I realized the real value of our work. As we were discussing who should attend the meeting and the agenda, she told me they had surpassed their 2013 leasing goal by 15% (they are a commercial real estate company). Just as I was congratulating her on her success, she thanked me for the part Quintain played in making it happen. The promotional marketing projects we worked on were the most successful in her territory and have been shared with her counterparts in other geographic markets as campaigns to copy and adapt. She continued explaining that our creative brainstorming sessions gave her many of the ideas she presented to the leasing brokers and property owners. But the ideas were just the beginning. Her confidence in our execution has also allowed her to turn her attention to other responsibilities that otherwise might not get the attention they deserve (if you share this frustration, try our Worry-Free Promo Order Form).

I wish I didn’t have to get on a plane to attend…”?  In fact, a recent trade show industry report found 45% of attendees visit only one exhibition per year.
