This #USAMfgHour Twitter chat “Marketing Touch Points in the Industrial Buyer Journey” was led by Paul Kiesche, President of Aviate Creative, a branding and creative agency with an edge in manufacturing located in NJ.
Kiesche began by saying, “Let’s get a good brainstorm going here about the industrial buyer’s journey. There’s no “correct” answer. Bring all your thoughts and ideas to the discussion. Your buyers have problems and you have the solution. However, selling to them is not that simple. Often buyers don’t know you exist, can’t find you, need convincing, reminding, etc. Let’s walk through the buyer’s journey together to see where marketing can help. A buyer goes from being completely unaware, to hopefully becoming a customer. All the steps in between, and even after they leave, is part of their journey.”
Every Thursday at 1:00 pm Central Time you are welcome to join the USA Manufacturing Hour, #USAMfgHour, Twitter chat. This week’s host was Pavel Stepanov of VirtuDesk, a virtual assistant company that helps entrepreneurs, real estate agents and other professionals with marketing, prospecting, admin, and more. Pavel and team shared their insights on Effective Strategies for Growing a Virtual Team
Social media uses Internet Applications that allow people (and bots) to communicate, share ideas and content. You’re probably familiar with Facebook®, Twitter®, LinkedIn®, Instagram® and TikTok®. These platforms have changed the way we “talk” to one another, provide information and stay connected. There are good and bad things about this instant and sometimes anonymous technology. With privacy on the line and possible dangers, are there positives to putting your business or personal views out there? In our #USAMfgHour Chat led by Julie Basello of Radwell International and Whitney Koch of Welker, Inc. in honor of Social Media Day, we discussed this topic.
Shipping and Fulfillment Processes, Is It Time To Re-Evaluate Those?
Is it time to re-evaluate shipping and fulfillment processes? If you have not read our blog on Supply Chain Trends that may not change, please do. On top of the absolute craziness in the world, it’s a surprise manufacturers and distributors are still shipping products out. With Supply-Chain shortages, trouble hiring and retaining good employees coupled with rising operating costs (Fuel, Raw Materials, Warehouse Space, etc.) should you evaluate some of your processes and technology? In my humble opinion, yes, you should.
Every once in a while, in order to move forward you need to take a quick look back at what you did accomplish under challenging circumstances. When I was in my early twenties, I had a roller-blading accident in Forest Park, one of our nation’s greatest urban parks right here in Saint Louis.
Change. Is it exciting? Unpleasant? Detrimental? Beneficial? How can Businesses harness the power of change and how can you translate these lessons into your personal life?
This week’s #USAMfgHour Twitter chat was led by Kirsten Austin of DCSC, Inc. She shared her insights on Managing Business and Personal Change.Read More
First of all, if you have not read Why My Mom Would Have Been a Good Warehouse Manager, please do so. This will give you a very quick understanding of Helga. Now, a quick story; I make these homemade meatballs that are extremely labor intensive and well worth it. My Mom and I joined a church pot luck event one year and upon arrival, one of the ladies grabbed my meatballs in the crock-pot and immediately put them on a lower shelf as if to say they weren’t good enough to be displayed. So the following Christmas, Helga bought me a beautiful serving dish with a sterno underneath. The card read, “No one will ever poo poo my daughter’s meatballs again.” What does this have to do with presentation and preparation? Let’s take a look at it.
