Doom Chris Kunitz Lightning Jersey , doom, doom - gloom, gloom, gloom, oh woe is me, the economy is shot, businesses are failing, no one's spending money. Maybe I should just curl up into a ball and cry.

And if we believed everything in the media, we should do just that. But is this reality or just an illusion we've collectively created for ourselves?

Sure, things are bad in certain sectors, but there are lots of people making hay too.

Take local retailer JB Hi-Fi who last month posted a 41 per cent rise in first-half profit, up from $41.9 million to $59 million despite the economic gloom.

And as two senior financial journalists I was listening to yesterday put it, "What's happening in the world is not terminal - it's more akin to a bad case of three day flu. However, if we keep beating it up (and they admitted the media is responsible for lots of this), it could well tip over the edge and we'd fall into the chasm."

So now more than ever if you're in business, get out there and market yourself. Shake some trees - and collect the fruit. It's all around you.

Remember, small consistent steps - ring some prospects, follow up clients, send out emails, faxes, letters - whatever - will bring in business. Just do it!

Have you ever noticed that once you donate to a charity you'll get lots of telemarketing calls from other ones too?

We'd probably get at least one or two calls a week. And while it sometimes does get a bit much, as marketers there's lots we can learn from them.

A couple of weeks ago, I heard Barbara answer the phone. Just listening to snippets of her conversation I figured it must be a charity.

Then she bursts out laughing and says, "Okay, how much and send it over".

Naturally I'm more than a bit curious - well wouldn't you be?

"That was the Guide Dogs. They reminded us that just under three years ago we'd bought a first aid kit from them and the ointments were due to expire. And for only $21 for 30 items we could replace the contents of the kit". So she bought it.

Very clever marketing!

Let's look at what they did?

First of all we've bought stuff from them before. So we're a customer. They sold us something that has a shelf life - which means they can contact us to restock the item.

Now lots of businesses have products that have self lives. But they don't keep track of their customers, don't contact them to suggest restocking and don't have a "hook" - where you feel good about making the purchase as you're helping support those cute Guide Dogs.

And the Guide Dogs aren't the only ones who do this. About a year ago we bought a teddy bear from Care Flight - he came dressed like an Aussie Bushman - complete with Akubra. Recently we got another call asking if we'd like the latest item (I think it was a fireman bear) as we'd bought the other one.

This time I didn't succumb - I couldn't "bear it"

But the lessons are clear. The charities are past masters at using human emotions to get us to fork out money. They play on our sense of guilt, love, pride, and there are people so many more unfortunate people that you can help etc.

And above all they keep track of their customers - what we bought, when we bought it, how much we spent, how often we spent etc.

They ask us for permission to call back. They then do so. It's a numbers game. Sometimes they get lucky and we buy.
But above all, they take action.

What's it like in your business? Do you just wait for the phone to ring or do you get out there and actively market yourself, consistently.

In order to create a successful printing service business, you have to be willing to make financial sacrifices. A lot of businesses need owners to put up their own money to start it before the business is able to make its own money. Printing Business owners have to come up with strategies to make money, but creativity isn’t easy for everyone. If you need some tips, we can help.


The speed at which you achieve your goals has nothing to do with the level of your success. In fact the longer you take ensures that you’ve marked your territory and are sure of the way things were worked out rather than going about it blindly. You need to be extremely patient and persevere however tempted you may be to speed up and somehow win the race.


Too often a printing service business will undervalue their products and services when offering them to clients. Low balling prices may seem like a good idea at first, but if you keep on doing so you will never make your desired profits. Instead, charge fair prices and this is something your customers will respect.


Good employees can be the key to making your printing consulting company a success. The first step to having a strong workforce is to hire smart people who will contribute to your printing service business in a meaningful way. Make a list of ideal traits for possible hires to make sure that you choose the right person for the job.


Make sure not to overstock your inventory, or you could run into some financial issues. Only spend money on maki.
