Tried & True, Old is New
Tried & True, Old is New

Just like other things that never die – rocks, wisdom, hope, taxes, and zombies – good printing practices live on and on. Whether you're an old dog or a new pup in the printing industry, there's no need to learn any new tricks. Simply look to the tried and true methods that have always worked to help you ring in the new year with new successes!

5 tactics to help take your new year to new heights!

1. BE RELEVANT – The print industry continues to change and be reinvented. That means you need to drive relevance – be the go-to for compelling print offerings and services. Be purposeful by helping your customers be smarter and more efficient.
2. CONVERGE PRINT & DIGITAL Quocirca's Global Print 2025 study revealed that 64% of businesses believe printing will remain important to their daily business even by 2025, as the need for physical signatures, receipts and multi-form papers will be ongoing. That's great news for you! Many businesses remain reliant on print to some extent, and converging print and digital will continue to be an effective way to reach multiple audiences.*
3. UNDERSTAND HOW CUSTOMERS COMMUNICATE – Customers expect companies to communicate with them the ways the customers like. That's why it's so important for you to be aware of your customers' communication preferences. Find out how your customers want to be spoken to, what they want you to say, and most importantly, how they want you to listen.**
4. BE HELPFUL & AUTHENTIC – Marketing automation and technology are advances that help marketers make better decisions and save money. So you need to find a way to keep, and build, your relationship with your customers despite this. Don't let technology run your business. Add a personal touch whenever possible. Speak to customers, visit customers, engage with customers, and continue to build relationships. Those who do say that customers stay longer and spend more money.***
5. TRUST IN WHAT CUSTOMERS TRUST – 82% of internet users in the United States trust print advertising more than digital marketing, according marketing research institute Marketing Sherpa. Humans like to touch, hold and grasp. The simplicity of being able to touch something is comforting, solid and real. People like it! So continue to trust in what you're doing and keep on printing!
