The digital poster comes with some software so you can drag and drop your images onto the memory card then set the rotation time, so that the images rotate in sequence, as you require. Then you have to insert the media card into the player, once secured into position, the digital poster is now ready to hang in your store window or on the wall.

Digital posters can also accept MPEG video files, so you can create a video and zone the screen and have separate images in each zone, while running video, the only thing you can not do is add RSS feeds, this is due to no Internet connection on the poster.

Now what makes them a perfect medium to get additional business, this is your opportunity to up sell your in-store merchandise and get a fast return on your investment, as you create the media content, so there are no additional costs and only a small investment in terms of money and time to get the digital sign configured and working.

Clothipromotional Ng Helps In Conveying Business Message

If a company is new to the market that it is difficult to survive in this competitive world and therefore some business lines must be made in order to provide additional promotion for their business. Where the only thing left for these companies is to give promotional products to the warehouse or trader that will eventually be delivered to the customer and this way, they will come to know about that company. In addition, an exclusive condition that must be met is to emboss these promotional products with the logo and the company’s message. In this way, these products will not be used for marketing anything else.
Promotional clothing is also one of promtional products that are supposed to be identical to the message boards or cards issued by any novice company to make marketing their business. On this too, the message and the companys logo is printed in an elegant and unique manner so as to distinguish it from the others. However, it seems inexpensive as to make the same profit by business cards. But it is quite significant to say that promotional clothing is far beneficial than anything else. This is because these are going to be worn on a daily basis and the person wearing it will also go to the market where few more people come to know about their business. Therefore, it is quite beneficial way to expand its activities.
But there is one thing that must be taken into account and it is the quality of fabric and the fabric used in the manufacture of promotional clothing as well. It must be kept in mind that if we get something more beneficial this kind of promotion, then make sure that the fabric is better. As long as the fabric will not be worn, it is not scope of business promotion and so is only possible when people love to wear it. So it must be better that can differentiate remains promotional products.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

Marketing Maven CEO, Lindsey Carnett, and Human Resources Generalist, Elicia Hildreth, hosted a workshop titled “Business Communication 101” on May 7, 2013 engaging Careers in Health and Mentorship Program (CHAMP) interns with professional development skills.

Hildreth provided an outline of how to arrive prepared for an interview and how to communicate appropriately to reflect a professional demeanor and a well-organized resume.

How To Write a Good Business Message

Most places of work require us to send messages to our co-workers and bosses. While writing to your co-workers may be a little more relaxed then writing to your boss, there still should be a common theme in your business message. That theme should be professionalism.

Subject Line – Your subject line should be to the point and relevant to the message. With the amount of e-mails that your recipient gets in a day, they may delete a message that has a subject line that says ‘Hey!’ or ‘What’s Up?!’ thinking that it’s just a nonsense e-mail that you sent out. If the message was really about an upcoming project deadline, then you are risking their job. So if the message is about an upcoming project deadline, then write that in the subject line.

Also, avoid writing your whole message just in the subject line. I have seen people who write ‘Your upcoming project deadline is Monday’ and then when you open the message they haven’t wrote anything else. This screams unprofessional and it is very annoying to say the least. So if you want your peers to like you at the end of the day, take the time to write a small and pleasant message where a message should be written.

Double Check Your Recipient Address – Too many times an e-mail can get sent to the wrong person. That person may disregard the e-mail or not bother forwarding it to the right person, even if they see the mistake you made. Some people take a “It’s not my responsibility!” attitude, and the truth is you will be the one to blame for it. So, take the time to check that your message is going where you intend it to go.

Keep The Message to The Point – Don’t write in a bunch of irrelevant information when writing business messages. The person you sent it to has probably had to wade their way through many messages already, and if yours is all over the place it could frustrate them and annoy them, which is not what you want from your boss or co-worker. Keep it to the point and on topic.

Put All The Relevant Details In It – Do not leave out some important points that should be in the message because you assume the recipient already knows those points. They may need to forward your message to someone who does not know all the little details that you left out, and if it’s to someone higher up the cooperate ladder, they may think you do not know what you are talking about or don’t have a good grasp on what is happening. Always keep all relevant and important points in the message.

Leave Negative Comments Out – Even if you are writing to your best buddy down the hall do not include negative comments. Messages have a way of being seen by other people, and it will be hard to deny calling Maggie a lazy worker if it’s clearly written in a message by you.

Goodbye Facebook Gifts, Hello GiftFly: An eGift Card Solution for Any Business to Start Selling Social & Mobile Gift Cards Anytime, Anywhere at No Cost…Instantly

Darien, CT (PRWEB) September 17, 2014

Digital gift cards are quickly becoming the most popular item for consumer purchases due to their convenience and instant delivery. Gift cards are a huge source of year-round revenue. And yet, big box retailers win the largest piece of these sales, leaving a huge gap. Tens of billions of dollars are spent at the larger retail outlets, mainly because of their widespread availability. GiftFly closes this gap by taking any business from local to national in seconds.

As of August 12th, Facebook ended their Gifts program. Many consumers found this to be an easy-to-use solution for their gifting needs, while businesses saw it as a powerful opportunity to increase their branding. At any rate, the departure of Facebook Gifts left a void in the world of social and mobile gift card sales.

GiftFly to the rescue.

“Now more than ever, customers will want to buy gifts from their favorite local merchants. We know our friends and family will really love these places. Now, any small business can compete with the big boys, right from a smartphone, tablet or computer. Distance does not matter. In 60 seconds, a merchant can be “live” selling an eGift card that any customer can personalize, purchase and deliver instantly. Merchants get paid the next day,” says Cory Perkins, CEO and Founder of GiftFly.

The premise is simple. GiftFly allows anyone, anywhere to give a gift card to virtually any local business. First, a customer chooses a friend via Facebook or email and designs their personalized gift card with any amount of money (up to $ 250). Then, after finding the business, they can send the online gift card to their friend’s Facebook account, email address, or mobile device in seconds.

Once the GiftFly is received, customers can easily redeem it at participating merchants using a QR Code on their smartphone, or through funds deposited into their PayPal or bank account.

“We wanted to create the most efficient way for shoppers to send and use gift cards while helping out small businesses dealing with the hassle of plastic cards,” says Natasha Miller, Director of Marketing of GiftFly.

Two types of cards are available: the cash card, which goes directly to the customer’s PayPal or bank account, and the merchant card, which is directly deposited into the bank account of the merchant on the next business day.

All of this is done for the lowest cost available to the business- plastic cards and expensive upfront fees are replaced by a completely free app. The GiftFly app lets employees scan codes, check the sales history of gift cards and even refund cards.

Once a business owner signs up at, even more tools are available. These include real-time sales information, the capability to manage discounts and refunds, print signage and create their own promotions. The welcome kit comes with a sign, window decals, magnets and pens to help promote their new, 24/7 product.

GiftFly also collects the email addresses of gift card senders and receivers, in an attempt to maximize social media and email marketing potential. A GiftFly merchant can access customer information by logging into their dashboard and download the contact list to add to or build their customer database.

GiftFly was created as a solution to the largely broken plastic gift card industry: although gift cards have been the #1 gift in the U.S. for the past seven years according to the National Retail Federation, up to 60% of gift cards go unused each year. Since the explosion of plastic gift cards in 1995, that equals $ 403 billion in merchandising opportunities lost.

Combine those statistics with the rise of digital wallets, digital debit cards, PayPal, bank account apps and other mobile solutions and it is fairly clear— plastic gift cards are on their way out.

About GiftFly was founded in early 2012 with the mission to replace plastic gift cards with the best digital gift on earth – a custom online gift card for the local places you love. GiftFly is based in Darien, CT and is privately funded. GiftFly is available in Europe as
