How a Distributor Used Classic’s Promotional Materials

October 27th, 2015 COMMENTS

Effective Email Marketing

We love it when distributors re-purpose Classic’s marketing materials. This week, Atlantic Exhibits sent an email broadcast promoting Perfect 10 Portable Hybrid Displays. Not only is the P10 on sale thorough 11/27, but it also carries the Exclusive 100-Day Return Guarantee. It’s the PERFECT one-two promotional punch as we head into the holiday season and 2016 shows.

Let us know how we can assist your efforts and grow your sales of Classic products. Well done Atlantic! Very well done indeed.

What’s Going On?: Word on the Street — July 4th thru July 8th

What's Going On

Word on the Street by Kevin Carty

Lots of Exciting News

This week, I’d like to recap some recent press, promos, and blogs. There’s a lot going on in the world of Classic. We’re relentless . . .  but that’s one of the many reasons you love us (and why we love you).

Recently, Classic Exhibits/ClassicMODUL participated in a feature article for Exhibit City News. The article was an interview with three manufacturer representatives about aluminum extrusion trends. Take a look and tell us what you think. It’s more interesting than the topic would lead you to believe.

If you missed it, we have a groovy Summer of Love promotion going on right now. Otherwise know as the “Booths with Benefits” Special.

Get a FREE 22″ LCD Monitor with the purchase of any Sacagawea Hybrid unit with a workstation between now and August 31, 2011. Yeah Baby Yeah!!

If you would like the “native” file of this promotion so you can re-brand it and send it to your customer email list, you can download it from this location. Now is a great time to build excitement for those fall shows.

And lest we forget . . .  Lt. Colonel “Big Daddy” Reid Sherwood (inside joke) was recently featured in a great piece by Jeff Abramson from MaxYourImage on current Exhibit Trends. Very well done and spot on!

Classic Exhibits participated in an Open House at Atlantic Exhibits in Philadelphia in early June. We weren’t content to collect business cards from the attendees. Instead, we decided to collect jokes. The winning joke won an Amazon Kindle. To see a compilation of the best and lamest jokes, view the YouTube post.

Finally, you might enjoy reviewing a timeline of Eco-systems Sustainable Exhibits, created by Eric Albery, the VP of Marketing and Business Development. The timeline highlights many of the important events that have shaped Eco-Systems, including the development of many eco-friendly first materials and product lines.

Shooting from the Hip — 11.10 (Flying Displays)

Shooting from the Hip (trade show tips)

Shooting from the Hip by Reid Sherwood

This week has been a technology roller coaster. All that really means is that our server is/was having problems. Email was not working obviously, which leaves a traveling sales guy with a smartphone that only works as a phone. It seems almost pointless doesn’t it?

August being upon us means that we should all start seeing more orders, and I think we will. I received a voice mail (since email was down) from Mike Sandler of Atlantic Exhibits-Baltimore earlier this week. Mike is not known for embellishing, so I take this as gospel truth. Here is the quote, “Reid – P10s and Magellans are literally flying out of the showroom right now.” I have never seen an exhibit fly, but if Mike says so then I believe him.

I hate to say this, but I believe the baseball season is all but over in Michigan. Just too many injuries to too many Detroit Tigers players. I am going to be a good sport about this and say that I hope the SOX win the division. I still think the Tigers are the only bright spot in Detroit.

Don’t forget to register for Mel’s webinar on Classic Exhibit Design Search (Tuesday and Wednesday). This will be a very productive hour. Trust me on this.

May the Sales God smile upon you until we talk again.

Until the next time,

–Reid Sherwood
