Be Well Presented

In all honesty, the name says it all. Presentation Folders. The entire purpose of these marvelous inventions is to…well…present things. What sort of things? Anything really. Information, Images, products, events, absolutely anything. Who can use these folders? Another good question. The answer is anyone and everyone can use them. Photographers, wedding coordinators, graphic arts professionals, publishing companies just to name a few. There are multiple sizes for multiple applications. They are terrific marketing tools and rather inexpensive considering the high impact they produce.

Direct Mail…it’s kind of a big deal.

One of direct mail’s biggest advantages is its ability to make personal one-to-one contact with your prospect. The ideal items to use for this correspondence are Postcards & Brochures.

Other Direct Mail advantages include:

Quick to produce. You can prepare and mail a small promotion within days or weeks. Direct mail is perfect for quickly testing prices, offers, and potential audiences. You have complete control over the media, the audience, and your offer.

Quicker response. Not only is direct mail quicker to prepare, but response time to direct mail is usually quicker as well. You can project the final results of a mailing quickly and accurately. You can build an advertising campaign with more confidence by testing small lists, then building to larger lists.

Highly targeted. Using carefully developed lists, you can target your mailings more selectively than you can with most other media. You can reach almost any market segment, buyer profile, or area of the Treasure Coast you feel is most appropriate for your business.

Less competition. Your advertising message does not have to compete with other advertising messages. And, your competitors are less apt to know your current strategy.


More personal. Not only can letters be personalized via mail-merging techniques, but you can use more informal language in writing your letter and you can direct your letter to the specific interest of the reader.

Enhance newspaper advertising. Build on customer awareness by complimenting your print advertising with the impact of targeted mail.

Easy to respond to. The inclusion of an order card and return envelope makes it convenient for the consumer to respond to direct mail.

List of loyal customers. Direct mail allows you to build and maintain a list of prime prospects for your future direct mail campaigns.

Door Hangers, a forgotten art.

An often overlooked marketing tool, the doorknob is one of the most widespread and widely used tools in the country (even though I don’t think there is research to prove it). That being said, why not utilize it? “How” you say? Door Hangers!


It’s always a good idea to get creative and when in doubt, make it funny. 1 part comical phrase, mixed with one part company information and you have the recipe for a very effective marketing piece. Big bold text is the key to an effective design. You want your Door Hanger to be eye catching since its not actually at eye level. Keep your colors vivid and have fun with it!



Another creative way to use Door Hangers is as Water Bottle banners. Great for events where water is being given away. Cheaper than printing custom labels and easier to apply than stickers.
