The seminar will cover: - What is marketing and its importance to print providers? - Overview of M4D, and how to implement the research in print companies - In-depth presentation of several M4D industry reports “We’re very excited to host the M4D seminar. Printers in our region have told us they want/need more information on how to more effectively market their services. Until now in-depth and practical information on what important industry segments are looking for from printers has not been available. M4D is groundbreaking research that is designed to arm all printing companies, traditional offset and digital, and their sales staff with information that will help them become more successful marketers and thus more profitable,” says Jim Frey, Executive Vice President of PINC. For more information on the M4D Seminar in San Francisco or to register please contact: Jim Frey, 415- 489-7608. M4D – Powerful, Practical, Easily-Implemented Tools for Selling M4D’s aim is to arm all printing companies and their sales staff with the specific detail they require to understand the specific needs of current and potential customers in over 24 vertical segments. Plus, M4D information teaches sales staff to “speak the specific language” of vertical segment customers, as the reports provide a deep understanding of each segment’s respective environment and unique requirements. M4D and the M4D Educational Series are part of PIA/GATF’s yearlong celebration of The Year of Digital Print and the fact that DPC is now a core service offering available to PIA/GATF members.
