In the run-up to the printed.com and Smarta EBook on marketing tips, we’re running a competition that will bring to life some of its clever ideas. One lucky winner will receive expert advice from Quay West, who will bring their 30 years experience in PR and marketing to bear on some of the advice in the EBook. Entitled 50 low-budget, high-impact marketing tips, it brings you effective tricks from an impressive line-up of experts. They range from short, inspiring pointers to more detailed advice, taking you through all the key phases of your marketing efforts. The competition winner will also win £100 of free print from printed.com, to put their marketing plan into action.
We want to flood the Twittersphere with gems of marketing wisdom. We’re asking competition entrants to answer the following question using the hash tag #smbshare: What is the best marketing tip you’ve heard recently? Our favourite answer will be chosen as the winner by February 15th at midday.
So, who are Quay West?
This award-winning PR and marketing communications agency specializes in developing innovative campaigns that achieve specific commercial objectives. Some of the ways they do this are through proactive media relations, social media and relationship marketing.
Quay West Marketing will work with the competition winner to get an overview of their business and marketing objectives. They will then assess the best way to move forward with a campaign to raise their profile in the areas most beneficial to them. The winner will then be presented with the recommendations, to be put into practice. The highlights and process used will also be published by printed.com.
Outreach to customers in print will be boosted by £100 to spend at printed.com. This could be spent on anything from great-looking promotional leaflets to posters or a direct mail campaign using the Mailshot Manager. Or the winner may choose to spend the printed.com voucher on products unrelated to their campaign.
