Marketing Vision

Our vision is that in 3 to 5 years we will be implementing through content rich material and processes that have become an industry norm on how to go about installing a marketing system.
1.1 Goals
Personal Goals:

1.2 Purpose
Our business exists to install a simple, affordable, effective and repeatable process into someone's business. Sometimes it can be done in 30 to 90 days, but typically it will take a full year commitment from a firm to establish the foundation, instruments and processes for this to become part of their business culture.

1.3 Picture
The picture we want to paint is that a customer has the ability for their marketing to operate without panic, confusion or scrambling to get something done. Marketing works when it is a process and things are done on a schedule supporting the previous and future steps.

1.4 Gap Dashboard
These key metrics need to be monitored. If we achieve these we believe that we will prosper and succeed in business. But, more importantly, we feel that if we make these efforts and our business is suffering it is apparent that our tactics and strategies need to be adjusted. Using this as an indicator and monitoring our marketing funnel successfully will allow us the freedom and opportunity desired in owning our own business.

2.0 Ideal Customer
These manufacturers have little or no in-house marketing staff. They have grown to where they are with little or no formal marketing but have become frustrated with their inability to "go to the next level." They are ready to move beyond reaction- and event-driven tactics. They are looking for a marketing partnership and are of unsure of how to proceed. They know what they do well and realize that they are the ones who must take responsibility for communicating the vision of the business – they want help doing just that. Many times they have worked with outside agencies and found that there has been little if any improvement other than a more "professional image."

2.1 Market Description
Our customers consist of manufacturers of machinery used in the agricultural, construction, forestry, materials handling, mining and utilities industries. Within this group we are most successful with process equipment manufacturers that require a high degree of application knowledge in order for their products to be sold.

History of printing

Offset press

Offset printing is a widely used printing technique where the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

Offset printing advantages
Advantages of offset printing compared to other printing methods include:
Consistent high image quality. Offset printing produces sharper and cleaner images and type than letterpress printing because the rubber blanket conforms to the texture of the printing surface.
Quick and easy production of printing plates.
Longer printing plate life than on direct litho presses because there is no direct contact between the plate and the printing surface.

[edit] Photo offset
The most common kind of offset printing is derived from the photo offset process, which involves using light-sensitive chemicals and photographic techniques to transfer images and type from original materials to printing plates.
In current use, original materials may be an actual photographic print and typeset text. However, it is more common -- with the prevalence of computers and digital images -- that the source material exists only as data in a digital publishing system.
Offset litho printing on to a web (reel) of paper is commonly used for printing of newspapers and magazines for high speed production.

[edit] Sheet-fed litho
Offset litho printing on to single sheets of paper or board. Commonly used for printing of short run magazines, brochures, letter headings, general commercial (jobbing) printing.

[edit] Present day
Offset printing is the most common form of high-volume commercial printing, due to advantages in quality and efficiency in high-volume jobs. While modern digital presses (Indigo Digital Press, for example) are getting closer to the cost/benefit of offset for high-quality work, they have not yet been able to compete with the sheer volume of product that an offset press can produce. Furthermore, many modern offset presses are using computer to plate systems as opposed to the older computer to film workflows, which further increases their quality.
In the last two decades, flexography has become the dominant form of printing in packaging due to lower quality expectations and the significantly lower costs in comparison to other forms of printing.

Starting your own Marketing Strategy

Today is a big day for this blog which the first day it is created. Today is 26th of November 2007. And as per Topic of this blog, it is all about Marketing and Strategy of it plus the Customer Oriented Marketing Strategy.

Marketing Definition (as General)
First, I wanna highlight the word "Marketing" it self. If I catch from it explains: "Marketing is a societal process that is needed to discern consumers' wants; focusing on a product/service to those wants, and to mould the consumers towards the products/services. Marketing is fundamental to any businesses growth. The marketing teams (Marketers) have the task to create the consumer awareness of the products/services through marketing techniques; if a business does not pay attention to their products/services and their consumers' demographics, the business would not be able to endure longevity."
And there are two types of Marketing which are:
1. Strategic Marketing.
Description(noted from "attempts to determine how an organization competes against its competitors in a market place. In particular, it aims at generating a competitive advantage relative to its competitors."
2. Operational Marketing
Description(noted from "executes marketing functions to attract and keep customers and to maximize the value derived for them, as well as to satisfy the customer with prompt services and meeting the customer expectations. Operational Marketing includes the determination of the marketing mix".

Marketing Strategy
E. Jerome McCarthy divided marketing into four general sets of activities. His typology has become so universally recognized that his four activity sets, the Four Ps:
Product: The product aspects of marketing deal with the specifications of the actual goods or services, and how it relates to the end-user's needs and wants. The scope of a product generally includes supporting elements such as warranties, guarantees, and support.
Pricing: This refers to the process of setting a price for a product, including discounts. The price need not be monetary - it can simply be what is exchanged for the product or services, e.g. time, energy, psychology or attention.
Promotion: This includes advertising, sales promotion, publicity, and personal selling, and refers to the various methods of promoting the product, brand, or company.
Placement or distribution refers to how the product gets to the customer; for example, point of sale placement or retailing. This fourth P has also sometimes been called Place, referring to the channel by which a product or services is sold (e.g. online vs. retail), which geographic region or industry, to which segment (young adults, families, business people), etc.

Study Cases:
For example about Marketing strategy as per my current job experience is for Printing industry, we are using the Pricing promotion only. Currently we just compete with lower pricing than others many printing company. Our company which is the Offset Printing Industry have 2 main Customers: LGEIN and SEIN.
This strategy is not really good and need for more strategy as promotion, advertising and distribution.
