  3. 3. Advertising dvertising is often the cornerstone of product branding strategy, but it is A only one tool in an effective integrated marketing communications process. In addition to copywriting and layout & design services, we negotiate rates with publications that can result in tremendous savings, stretching your budget and increasing your impact. The ad above was created to introduce Mannington Ceramic Tile’s CrystalGlaze product, and to raise awareness of how damaging common household items can be to tile.
  4. 4. Public Relations ublic relations activities are gaining importance as part of product and P corporate branding strategy. Not to be confused as ‘free ads,’ effective press releases can provide powerful support to other branding activities.

Above is an example of a positive result achieved for a food client with Today Show Food Editor and Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert.

Above is an example of sales literature created for a medical instrument man- ufacturer and used in sales calls, with direct mail, and at trade shows.
  6. 6. Direct Mail o, direct mail is not dead. It is a powerful and cost-effective way to N keep your name and brands in front of potential buyers. When man- aged well, it’s too good an opportunity to pass up.

  10. 10. Trade Show Promotion etting the most from a trade show appearance goes far beyond invest- G ing in a booth and showing up.
