  • Why routine in your life is an excellent business strategy

    Jim Raffel
    25 Aug 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Know those days when you just feel “off?” We all have those days; and when I look back over the last several months I’ve found a common thread in those days. In general, my daily routines got messed up one way or another. Routines in your personal and business life allow you to be calm, focused, balanced and centered. Without routines, it’s like you’re being tossed about in the ocean with no life raft. How does a daily routine look? When I’m not traveling, I start each day with a 1.8 mile walk. This typically happens before 7 a.m. and three days a week is…
  • Why Helping Others Is An Awesome Business Strategy

    Jim Raffel
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Helping others can be a tricky topic because it likely has a different meaning for each of us. For you it might mean donating clothing or other gently used household items to a charitable organization. For others it might mean giving money to a charitable cause. It could also mean giving your time and talents to help others become better people in some way or another. All of those are great definitions of helping others and maybe you engage in all of those activities. But here’s the kicker: Do you consider helping your customers by giving of yourself? You should and here’s why.
  • My take on impacting the future

    Jim Raffel
    4 Aug 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Photo Credit Over the last few months my mantra has become: “Focus on what can be – not what is or has been – because you can only impact the future.” It’s pointless to waste your time and energy worrying about the choices you’ve made that got you to where you are today. Instead focus that time and energy on a strategy and plan to get you where you could be, where you want to be. Today is what it is, get over it and move on. Today could be an excellent day or a craptastic one for you. In either case, I’m gong to suggest you just get over it and move…

    Photo Credit Perhaps you’ve heard the expression in business that “nothing happens until someone sells something.” Smiling and dialing is an important step in the sales process. If you want to increase sales you have to do more than just let people know your product exists. You have to sell them on the benefits they will derive in exchange for the money they will pay you.

  • Good Housekeeping is not Search Engine Optimization (It’s What People Expect)

    Sandy Hubbard
    10 Sep 2014 | 6:12 am
    Customers expect your website to be fresh, logical, attractive and professional. If it’s not, you need to do some housekeeping. Housekeeping is not SEO. Like deep cleaning the pressroom or tidying up the landscaping around your print shop, “good housekeeping” means getting your website in order. It should be done on a scheduled basis, like changing your furnace filters or the batteries in your smoke detectors. If you don’t schedule your website housekeeping, years may pass where you accumulate outdated or incorrect content, old fashioned navigation, dirty code, security issues,…

  • Comparing Toner and Ink Cartridges

    kyle
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:57 am
    An inexpensive printer may seem like it will result in cheaper printing costs, but that may not actually be the case. When determining if printing on ink or toner is the more economical option, it’s better to look at all of the costs associated with the printer. Because toner is used by laser printers and ink by inkjet printers, there are significant differences in both types of printing methods. Toner cartridges are powder-based that may be preferred due to their faster printing speed and often higher quality. Additionally, toner cartridges produce a higher volume of pages per…
  • Why buy genuine ink cartridges when compatibles are much cheaper

    The printing industry has evolved over the years and the evolution has brought some extra additions with it. One of these additions is compatible ink cartridges. These ink cartridges are produced by a third party that has no affiliation to the original manufacturer of a printer. Most users complain that the genuine ink cartridges are extremely expensive. The compatible alternatives are cheaper hence they are receiving more buyers. This begs the question, is cheap ultimately expensive? Why should you buy a cheap compatible? for instance a T0711 original ink cartridge costs around £15.00 for…

  • 4 Dimensional Printing

    Guest Writer
    21 May 2013 | 6:34 am
    What is 4D printing, and how does it work? A 4D printer uses a type of 3D printer that is unlike any other; a 3D printer makes different shapes by taking several or more and adds them together piece by piece. The idea behind a 3D printer is to take each layer and add them together to make one solid shape. There are many types of 3D printers, but this is the basic idea behind what they do. With 4D printers, this concept takes it a step further.  It takes the same layers and uses them in a way that helps them to form the same solid shape on their own. It’s as if they come alive right…
