Eric’s Holiday Inspiration

‘Twas hours before this season's Big Day, When the Blogfather came in with something to say. "An awesome blog you now must write, And this time allow no scares, fears or fright. ‘Tis the holiday season, so make it cheerful and bright, And if you must be sure to stay up all night." “On the condition that it’s relevant to our industry and trade,” Was the petition TriAd's art director Michael Dubs had made. What inspires me and gets my artistic motor running, Comes often from artists whose work I find stunning. But it’s movies that most inspire my creative [...]

Calendar Season! ‘Tis here again!

Long about midsummer or early fall, clients begin thinking about their company calendar for the next year.  This year was no exception and TriAd has enjoyed a full plate of 2013 calendar design projects for the past few months.  And now that all have been printed and delivered, it’s a great time for a few moments of reflection. To put it simply, there’s just something very special about calendars.  Despite the unrelenting bombardment of digital formats for desktop, laptop and mobile phone, the traditional printed calendar retains its popularity.  For companies, the annual calendar is an opportunity to present their [...]

Counting the Final Days & Pages of 2012

Entering the final month of the year it seems like countdowns and numbers become important to a lot of us: grade school students and the Tiny Tim Cratchits among us are counting the days until Christmas vacation; family members and the Bob Cratchits are counting the days preparing for family and friends to arrive for the holidays; and administrators are doing their “Ebenezer Scrooge number crunching” to see if quotas will be met by the time we turn the calendar. Well, the TriAd magazine staff is continuing to work feverishly in producing our final publications for 2012. (Thank you boss [...]

Chief Marketer/Penton 2012 Social Media Survey

Social Media Marketing – Step Out Boldly and Explore! Chief Marketer/Penton Media recently published their 2012 Social Marketing Survey.  Titled “Lots of Choices, Lots of Trials”, the annual study provides a wealth of information about marketers’ use of the major social media platforms.  And while the survey polled both B2C and B2B marketers across a broad range of industry segments, insights into the social media mindset of B2B marketers are particularly interesting.  Here are some highlights.

Best Internet Marketing Techniques – A Case Study

Does online advertising work? What options are out there and what is the best return for your investment? More and more the internet is becoming a primary marketing tool for many businesses, and those who have not yet taken the plunge are starting to get left behind. Most businesses accept the fact that without an online presence it's hard to stay afloat, but with all the choices out there it's easy to end up treading water, and instead of gaining more customers you can end up drowning in Tweets and Facebook posts that never seem to produce results.

A Wealth of Thankfulness

It is often at this point of the year that we spend time thinking about, and expressing, the things we are thankful for.  Actually many people across our social networks are doing a day-by-day, 30 Days of Thankful on Facebook.

We are thankful for our many, many blessings … our families, our homes, our country, and an amazing company and creative team who make every day exciting, and never dull. [...]

“Knowledge is Power. Moustache is King.”

Well, November is here and, once again, the Movember & Sons movement is alive and well at TriAd.  In fact, it just might be better than ever.  In Movembers past, several of us participated casually by giving the beard free reign, trying a goatee or actually grooming a moustache.  But in 2012, we’ve added some muscle.  This year we have a real team – the Sons of Moustachery! Check us out! For those unaware, during November of each year Movember & Sons is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the US and [...]
