Frank:

Great review of Print in the Mix (printinthemix.com), the unique clearinghouse of print market research managed by RIT and funded entirely by The Print Council. The Print Council encourages print providers, educators, marketers, and others to incorporate the research in their newsletters, sales presentations, websites, e-letters, and staff educational sessions.

Three additional points:

1) The site is free and easily accessible.

2) There is a toolkit in which companies can choose specific relevant Fast Facts or other data, drop it in a ready-made template, brand it with their logo, and then distribute to their customers, prospects, and staff.

3) Monthly research updates via email and RSS feeds are available.

Director, The Print Council

Great information from Frank. We use Print in the Mix all the time as a sales tool. The data is rich with important information that our clients need to know.

Kudos to you Frank for highlighting the outstanding work of Print in the Mix and the fine research effort managed at RIT. Print in the Mix provides critical data that printers everywhere can use to strengthen their marketing efforts. The "nuggets" captured from their diverse range of research and resources are invaluable in crafting a full perspective and productive means of explaining the high value of of print in the marketing mix to consumers and clients alike. It's important work and deserving of the industry's support.

It would be nice for this to be published on Youtube to also be able to share it via social media. . .

@ David Pilcher - humm - yes, a fine idea, and in this case (and a few other cases) - this video would do well to be shareable...but how would What They Think then entice someone to join and pay the subscription fee for Premium Content ?

 

By David Pilcher on Mar 30, 2011

Good point Michael. I guess I didn't think about the fact this was premium content. I suppose those videos that aren't behind the pay wall could be in a format that is more shareable.

David and Michael:
The Whattheythink.conm staff made this video openly available on the Print in the Mix site. It can be found on the front page at http://printinthemix.cias.rit.edu/

Thanks to all.
