Website Tips for Success —DeWese
Well, I could (and I will) write a lot more about Websites as a sales tool. But first, I want to announce the first ever Mañana Man Printing Industry Website Contest.
The contest is for all companies, anywhere, who subscribe to PRINTING IMPRESSIONS. There will be three categories. Category One is for companies with sales less than $10 million. Cateogry Two is for companies that generate between $10 million and $50 million. Finally, Category Three is for those with annual sales revenues greater than $50 million.
Send me an e-mail, nominating your company or, if you dare, some other company’s Website. My panel of experts will visit the site and give it a score. The winner for each category will be featured in this magazine and receive a gift box of Philadelphia’s own Tastykakes. The contest will end on my birthday, June 30, 2007.
It’s kind of like “Dancing with the Stars” and “American Idol,” except it’s far more important. Your Website serves your livelihood.
Now put this magazine down and get out there and sell something! PI
