Print buyer and marketing exec Brittany Fenning: What "marketing services provider" means
Published on February 25, 2010
I’m Britney Fenning. I’m Creative Director for Fenning Marketing Group, my company. We are an advertising marketing firm; we specialize in creative services as well as strategic branding.
I’d like to talk about the marketing services provider and what that means. To me, that’s what I do. I’m a marketing services provider. So the term in the industry is a little clouded, I think print production, print services providers, I think that really applies to what we’re looking for in a printer.
With marketing service providers, they’re all things including print; ecommerce, branding, creative services, mailing. But a lot of that is what I do and I find it gets a little bit competitive. It competes with my services as well. And what I look for is a printer who can print and do a really good job. I want to know that they’ll be on time, they’ll be on budget, and if there’s a problem they’ll let me know. I like to form relationships with my printers and help them to understand what it is that my preferences are and what I like to do.
