Is There Really a Place For Print Media in This Digital Age?

Well in short, yes. But don’t leave yet! We’re going to tell you how the right Print Design can put your business at the top of the Calgary business totem poll! You know you want to keep reading. And we’ll answer the arguments you likely began compiling when we first said “yes.” Yes… we’re sneaky like that.

Argument 1: I have a snazzy new website. I send weekly newsletters and special announcements to clients. Therefore I am on the cutting edge of the 21st century. Do I really need print design here in Calgary?

Brilliant answer 1: You are doing many things right, but just as you have begun to take advantages of the unlimited opportunities afforded by the internet, why would you limit yourself by relying on the internet alone for your marketing needs?

A strategic and current print campaign can ensure your company is entrenched in the minds of all who might be interested in your services.

Argument 2: I can send Facebook updates and events. I don’t need to send a calendar or reminder card or any other print design for events.

Brilliant answer 2: As mainstream as Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have become, not everyone has one. But everyone has an address. So send them a card to make sure. And you have a potential to target a new population all around and outside of Calgary if, say, a calendar, poster, or event reminder card makes it onto the bulletin board of another company. Don’t forget, the refrigerator was the original “like it”.

Argument 3: This article was found on an internet solutions website. Why are you arguing for print media?

Brilliant answer 3: We fully support and advocate the importance of internet site development. E-mails are great and immediate. Websites, e-newsletters and the like allow promotions to reach the desks of your longtime customers and curious prospects alike. But we know it would be foolish to over look the marketing power of a well designed brochure, poster or even event reminder card on a bulletin of an office. In a bustling city like Calgary, print media can be very effective in catching a busy customer’s eye and help them to remember you.

Dedicate your resources to what you do best. Focus on your business. Calgary is a big city. We might pride ourselves on the ability to multi task, but Calgary also has a lot of resources. Calgary IT support can be fast, reliable, and let you do what is important to you while IT support works behind the scene to make sure nothing interferes with your business.

Cost: With a full IT support company, they put the money into training and technology to create an effective presence in the IT support industry. The cost to them is then met with the benefit of being able to serve many different customers around Calgary. You can benefit from this; by hiring a Calgary IT support company will end up spending much less money for the benefit of at lot more technology. So it follows that for far less than the cost of hiring one in house IT staff, you can hire a team of experts with access to first class technology who will be available around the clock to serve your technological needs.

Commerx is a Calgary web design company. Regardless if you need a small “brochure” site, an e-commerce storefront or a complex database driven site with a content management system, Commerx designers can build it for you. Our calgary website development team will work closely with you to ensure that your website will function as it needs to, while still being unique and aesthetically-pleasing.

Digital Signage Content: Integrating Social Media Can Garner Attention and Build Interest

Here is a remarkable statistic published online by USA Today’s Technology Live website in October 2010. As of that date, there were 6.8 billion people in the world, 1.96 billion Internet users and 517 million Facebook users.

As Byron Acohido, author of the piece noted: “Put another way: about 7 percent of the world’s humans are on Facebook.” Just over a year later, Facebook notes on its statistics page that there are now 800 million active users of the social media network.

How many of those Facebook users carrying smartphones will visit somewhere that relies on a digital sign? One can only imagine the number for a particular venue. But consider this: Facebook’s statistics page says there are 350 million users who actively interact with Facebook via their smartphones. So it’s a pretty safe bet that the closer the demographics of the audience for a digital sign match those of typical mobile Facebook users, the more likely there’s a vast opportunity to be realized.

The likely proximity of a smartphone to a digital sign creates an important opportunity for anyone communicating via a digital sign who possesses a bit of an imagination and a willingness to experiment. Consider a noisy environment, such as a popular bar, dance club or even certain restaurants. Could designating on-screen real estate of a digital sign to a special Facebook page, give a business owner a way to help patrons connect with one another on screen and in so doing cut through the noise, attract the attention of customers and promote goods or services in other zones on the sign?

Leveraging social media in this way could be as simple as giving patrons a virtual bulletin board on which to post vetted observations and pictures or as complex as giving them a way to play bar games, like trivia, with one another. Imagination, budget and creativity would seem to be the only limitations.

The good news for small businesses looking to take advantage of this opportunity is many are already quite familiar and fluent with Facebook. According to the quarterly Merchant Confidence Index released in February 2011 by MerchantCircle, 70 percent of local merchants are using Facebook for marketing -up from 50 percent the preceding year. In fact, MerchantCircle, among largest social network of local business owners in the United States with more than 1.6 million members, found Facebook has passed Google as the most widely used marketing method for local merchants.

In addition to its wide use by local merchants, the rapid growth Facebook saw over the past year saw among merchants is positive. It appears to indicate local merchants have proven themselves to be quite willing to explore the potential of this social network. Thus taking the next step to integrate a Facebook page as digital signage content doesn’t seem to be too far of a stretch for merchants with a knack for the platform.

It’s also important to note that Facebook isn’t the only social media platform that can be leveraged for digital signage content. Twitter, too, easily fits into the same mold as a convenient way to let patrons publicly interact with one another on a digital sign via their smartphones. Like Facebook, Twitter also is familiar to local merchants. The Merchant Confidence Index found about 40 percent currently use the platform, which is up from 32 percent in the fourth quarter of 2009.

As business owners, outside creative agencies and internal graphics departments consider what digital signage content to present to the public, they would do well to remember that adding engaging, attention-grabbing element to their digital sign may be no further away than a Facebook page or Twitter account.
