ImageMark President Walter Payne on the value of the PODi AppForum

Published on January 28, 2010

My name is Walter Payne at Image Mark Business Services of Gastonia, North Carolina. The reason that I decided to attend PODi this year, and I try to come every year if I can, is to make sure that I have an opportunity to keep up on what some of the net marketing strategies and business strategies that are current in the marketplace today are. And then really in this year we see a big shift taking place in the business of marketing today. Most recently with the Haiti earthquake disaster, more than $10 million was raised in a very short period of time using the technology of text messaging. So, as a print provider, a marketing solutions provider, it is incumbent upon us to understand these strategies and really to develop our own understanding so that we can help our own clients utilize the technology that’s available today.

As a result of that, we try to come to these mediums, PODi, we are obviously on their website quite frequently, looking at different venues to just to try to understand what’s going on in the world of marketing today because as you know the generational marketing out there, the different generations that you have to cater to there’s no one size that fits all. And we have to be purveyors of technology in our industry in order to meet the needs for our clients.

So, that’s why I’m at PODi this year.
