Let's get social for a second. I have been out meeting more and more of you and will be heading to Anchorage, ALASKA for the first time, celebrating my 11 years at PPI. If you're there and we don't have an appointment yet, contact our office or EMAIL ME!

Not only am I out there sharing the State of the Industry presentation w/ individual companies but I also have a WHY SOCIAL presentation. Happy to come out or virtually meet with your sales & management staff to share some "special sprinkles" to spread some "printsperation".

Check out the little ditty we just posted on our Instagram Page. PrintROCKS is a big deal for PPI and your involvement helps keep PPI strong now & for years to come. And the party... AMAZING! Nominate a Hickey Picker too & we'll honor them on 9/22. 

MAKE THIS THE YEAR! I just shared a short op-ed on how one company almost stopped participating in professional industry competitions... but
 then asked what it meant to their staff... read more on my LinkedIn!

Just as we celebrate all things print, let's make Sam proud. Buy a firework or two <3 Fireworks packaging is an important part of many weekends ahead! But don't burn yourself...

All of us at PPI wish you all a fun, peaceful holiday celebrating the USA  - 241 YEARS young.  Cheers! jules

Social Media: Why Its So Important

By: Jules Van Sant

Social media. Essentially a category of online media where people are talking, participating, sharing, networking, and bookmarking online.

I get it, I hear it. It's for kids. It's for millennials. It's not for B2B. #wrong

Let's talk money-look at the opportunities for increasing your sales. If you were to pull your customer list, what percentage have you engaged with in the past year and, better yet, sold to? Are you happy with that? Are your sales reps reaching out to everyone on their customer list? Are buyers aware of all you do? Do they know your brand...a.k.a., your WHY?
