Sunrise Hitek Launches Premium Metal & Acrylic Shelf Talkers

Shelf talkers are a tried and true way to draw customer attention directly to a product at the point of purchase. These shelf talkers are ideal for retail shelving. Users can customize everything which includes the material printed on, the print style itself, and even the shape of the piece.

The first material clients can choose from is that of metal which is aluminum. Once can choose from standard rectangle edges with rounded or square corners, or opt for a totally custom shape. These print 4-color ink beautifully, but also allow for the choice to leave negative space showing off some of the brushed metal finish. Sunrise can also provide u-channel shelf clips either installed or included for self-install.

The other material Sunrise offers is clear acrylic. Acrylic offers the same choice of sizes and custom shapes, but some different choices when it comes to print. Customers can choose full color printing with a “flood white” background which gives a vivid, opaque finish. They can also decide to skip the flood white and apply color straight to the clear acrylic which gives a translucent effect. Engraving or laser etching are other exciting possibilities.

Shelf talkers are the best way to make a product stand out amongst hundreds of others. According to the The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), after cost, shelf talkers can influence buyers up to 40%. What a simple way to boost retail sales. Also, check out Darryl Rosen's 5 Tips for Effective Shelf Talkers:

1. Use big fonts – or at least a big enough typeface so that consumers can comfortably read them 
2. Make them readable – and can be read while a consumer is moving 
3. Creative – but not overly creative 
4. Informative – in a compelling way 
5. Well maintained – replace often and keep a fresh look

Metal & acrylic shelf talkers are just one product line in the shelf talker category. Sunrise also offers conventional shelf talkers, shelf talker flags, aisle violators, bottle neckers, channel strips and even a Sunrise exclusive product called the shelf talker hoop which adds a 3D effect to the standard shelving strip. All of these are designed to be customer facing and make your product easy to find on standard gondola shelving used in grocery stores, hardware stores and other retail environments. All of these can be printed on either synthetic paper or gloss paper. There are many free templates for shelf talkers on the Sunrise website and custom dielines are accepted as well to make the design even more unique.

Northeast Prestressed Products Features Bridge Project That’s First of Its Kind in the U.S.

Northeast Prestressed Products (NPP), a PCI Mid-Atlantic Producer Member and manufacturer of prestressed/precast products for the Mid-Atlantic, New England and surrounding areas, has a key role in a prominent Lehigh Valley bridge replacement project that is currently underway.

Lehigh and Northampton Counties are replacing their 1930’s era bridge over the Lehigh River with a durable precast prestressed concrete structure. The Coplay-Northampton Bridge replacement has a .5 million price tag and will connect the two boroughs for motorists and pedestrians.

This project is the first in Pennsylvania to utilize pre-stressed and post-tensioned bulb tee beam construction including spliced girders, and the first in the U.S. to use Electrically Isolated Tendons (EIT).

PROJECT OVERVIEW 
The replacement structure will be a three-span continuous bridge using pre-stressed bulb tee girders, with four splices along the span. The five girder lines will be post-tensioned and grouted with four tendons per line. A composite cast-in-place concrete deck will complete the structure.

The bridge is one of the most heavily traveled in the Lehigh Valley, and so many people walk the bridge every day that the county is providing a shuttle bus six days a week for the duration of the project.

PRECAST SOLUTION 
AECOM is the architect and structural engineer for the bridge project. Jason Beecher, PE, AECOM Project Manager, recalls that the company has been working on this project for more than a decade.

Their memorandum of agreement with Lehigh County included architectural features on the replacement structure like ornamental lighting and reconstruction of the tow path to service the old canal.

All interested parties were eventually satisfied, and the project moved forward.

“AECOM was selected back in 2004 as the A and E for this design/bid/build project. We worked with the community to develop a durable structure for Lehigh County,” explained Beecher.

AECOM had to overcome community sentiment for the older structure by performing public outreach. The resulting concrete structure accommodates the addition of a turn lane as well as improving the durability and under-clearance.

“The AECOM team was able to keep the existing pier locations in the river and through substructure evaluation determined they were adequate to support the new loading. We didn’t have to put in coffer dams, and we minimized disruption to the fish migration seasons,” recalls Beecher.

The use of the pre-stressed post-tensioned spliced girders was selected back in the TSL stage, but it wasn’t until the design development stage that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) showed interest in the project to test a new method of corrosion protection.

IT’S GOOD TO BE FIRST 
The bridge replacement project is the first in Pennsylvania to utilize pre-stressed and post-tensioned bulb tee beam construction including the spliced girders. And it’s the first project in the United States to use Electrically Isolated Tendons (EIT), a technology that is readily available and has been successfully used in Europe.

The EITs allow for verification that the post-tensioned cables have been encapsulated, as per the plans and specs, while they provide enhanced durability and non-destructive condition assessment over time. It requires minimal changes to current construction practices and provides an incentive to improve workmanship.

“The use of the demo EIT technology did not have an adverse effect on the project schedule or budget,” explains Larry Franko, Project Manager with Pennoni Associates.

“I predict in the future this technology should be considered for every pre-stressed and post-tensioned project,” adds Franko.

The EIT process uses a tight polymer duct that encapsulates the high-strength steel along with grouting that creates a protective alkaline environment for the steel strands and an anchor head that is isolated from the ground and the normal reinforcement of the structure.

The use of electrically isolated anchorages allows the team to check the integrity of the plastic duct during and after construction and to monitor the corrosion protection of the high-strength steel during the whole service life with electrical impedance measurements.

The FHWA had been searching for a project that fit the criteria to demonstrate the EIT system. In conjunction with Lehigh County and PennDOT, the Coplay bridge project was selected after vetting concerns about schedule, time and cost.

Lehigh University and Dywidag Systems International (DSI) also played a part in this groundbreaking project.

CHALLENGES 
The engineering and transportation divisions of NPP worked with Trumbull, project contractor, to overcome challenges in the development and delivery of the beams. Beam delivery met several snags as the travel route had to be adjusted so the prestressed concrete beams – the longest at 139’4” – could be backed down a narrow street to access the crane.

According to Franko, only one route was deemed acceptable for the delivery of the prestressed beams. Unbeknownst to the team, a local township construction project impacted that route.

“There was no other way to reach the staging area and we were looking at a possible 6-week delay,” says Franko. The team devised a way to use a local street within the detour in conjunction with a public parking lot. That creative solution avoided major delays.

Mother Nature poured buckets of rain on Pennsylvania in 2018. It was one of the wettest years on record, with the Lehigh Valley receiving more than 20” of rain above normal, putting a damper on the construction schedule.

“The causeways were frequently submerged due to the rain,” says Beecher. “Since they were needed to erect the pre-stressed beams, we had to increase the elevation to make sure they weren’t washed out.”

The temporary causeway was designed based on the driest month of August, but the causeway was flooded because of the extremely rainy summer, so a concrete foundation was installed to support the temporary towers.

Another challenge for the team was performing a full-scale mockup of the post-tensioning operation. Franko recalls it wasn’t easy finding a level space 600 feet in length where they could mimic the exact bridge profile. Trumbull found space that allowed the interested parties to walk through the process and satisfy PennDOT and FHWA.

As with any spliced girder project, there were some challenges.

“There was some difficulty with alignment and movement with the drop in sections between the 2 haunched girders on opposing piers that were held in place only by the use of strong backs. The section between the piers was the farthest reach and that piece was difficult to maneuver. In order to avoid the PT ducts, we had to drop it down alongside and move it laterally into place,” says Franko.

There was a slight misalignment of the PT ducts due to the temporary forces on each end of the beams. They came up with a scheme to jack the beams which allowed everything to be moved within allowable tolerances.

CONCLUSION 
Lehigh University and DSI will continue to monitor the bridge project and publish the results of their research. The results will confirm how well confined the post-tensioned tendons were during construction. The initial readings were above baseline and from that standpoint the grouting operation was successful.

This non-destructive evaluation method monitors for breeches in the corrosion protection system indicative of the onset of corrosion. In this demonstration project, the emphasis was for the EIT to measure quality control at the time of construction as well as long-term.

As for the project schedule, concrete deck work is scheduled for completion in 2019 with a bridge opening date set for 2020.

Portland Creative Agency, Trueline, to Host Monthly Art Shows

The Salt Institute for Documentary Studies may have found a new home at the Maine College of Art, but one Portland creative agency is making sure the film school’s former headquarters remains a creative hub.

Beginning Friday, July 5, to coincide with the city’s First Friday Art Walk events, Portland-based creative agency Trueline will host monthly art showings at its new office at 561 Congress Street.

The name of gallery in the newly renovated space is Trueline Gallery @ 561. The first show is called First Light.

According to Matt Welch, a Trueline employee curating the events, the company wanted to honor the space’s legacy by showcasing Maine artists from across the creative spectrum.

“Portland has such a fantastic tradition of supporting the arts, and the Salt Institute is a vital part of that ecosystem,” Welch says. “Hosting events on First Friday is great, but we wanted to go above and beyond.”

All money received from sales will go directly to the artists.

David Wade, a Portland-based photographer and host of WMPG’s Juke Jive ‘n Jazz, is one of the artists whose work will be featured at this Friday’s inaugural show.

“I was so excited to find out Trueline was revitalizing the old Salt Institute space and using it to support local artists,” says Wade, whose work will also be shown this Friday at Portland Media Center as part of the Union of Maine Visual Artists.

“Anytime you can expose the public to art they might not have seen on their own—especially when it’s such immensely talented people behind it—that’s a special thing.”

The July 5 lineup will also include Cumberland-based photographer C.E. Morse; Falmouth-based photographer Joanne Arnold; and South Portland bronze-sculpture artist Peter Dransfield.

The events will be held every other Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. Wine and light snacks will be offered. Guests who leave a business card will receive one hour of free consulting from Trueline.

Founded in 2007, Trueline is a full-service branding, marketing and consulting agency that has been named one of the “Best Places to Work in Maine” three consecutive years. Its former location was just down the street in Portland at 482 Congress St.

LycoBiotic – New Powerful Prebiotic with Health Benefits for Gut, Liver and Skin Rejuvenation - Great for Hot Chocolate, Tea and Coffee

Lycotec Ltd, a Cambridge UK based company, http://www.lycote.com, has just published results of a clinical study on its new prebiotic, LycoBiotic™, which is 1,000 – 4,000 stronger than fibre. For this trial the company used different nutraceutical capsule and chocolate formulations, which were based on a proprietary composition of GA lycopene, specially developed for elderly persons and for those with metabolic syndrome, fatty liver and related conditions. The product was tested on 30 middle-aged patients with moderate obesity and lasted for 4 weeks. The trial was led by a multi-discipline team from three countries, including cardiologists and experts in gut microbiome, skeletal muscle, liver and skin health.

The findings of the team were that a daily intake of this lycopene could specifically, and in a dose-dependent manner, increase the abundance of Bifidobacteria, one of the main probiotics responsible for support of the immune system in the gut. These changes in the microbiome were accompanied by a reduction in markers of inflammation and oxidative damage in the blood, improvement of liver, skeletal muscle parameters and reversal of age-associated changes in skin: 
http://www.lycotec.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Clinical-Study-Prebiotic-Effect-of-Lycopene-and-Dark-Chocolate-on-Gut-Microbiome-with-Systemic-Changes-in-Liver-Metabolism-Skeletal-Muscles-and-Skin-in-Moderately-Obese-Persons.pdf

One of the most striking findings in the trial was that the prebiotic effect of LycoBiotic™ was observed with a daily dose as low as 7 mg of lycopene, whilst for fibre this would be 30 g. This discovery, as stated by Dr Ivan Petyaev, the founder and CEO of Lycotec, opens up new possibilities not only to develop new compact fortified functional bites, treats and snacks but also drink shots or small size beverage products with prebiotic properties. 
Based on proprietary technology, Lycotec has in fact already developed a number of products with LycoBiotic™ such as prebiotic chocolate, prebiotic ice cream and prebiotic milk, which can be added to a cup of tea or coffee without change to their taste.

The company is now looking for investment and partnership to transfer already developed LycoBiotic™ food and beverage prototypes to their industrial production, and to bring to the market these new functional products, set to improve not only gut, liver and skeletal muscle health but also to support and rejuvenate our skin.

Vitality C60 - A Natural Answer to Arthritis

52-year-old man finds relief from his degenerative arthritis in only two weeks after taking a daily dose of C60 oil. C60, also commonly known as fullerene, was discovered almost 40 years ago, but it was not until recently that healthcare professionals began to discover the incredible healing powers it has on the human body.

Derek Lepage of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan claims that the symptoms of his arthritis began to weaken after only one week of usage, “I’ve had a lot of pain in my knees, toes and shoulders for as long as I can remember, but after only a week of using C60 I started noticing that my pain was decreasing, and in two weeks it was completely gone.”

C60 is considered to be a ‘free radical sponge’ and relieves people from the symptoms of arthritis by absorbing the free radicals and encouraging the regeneration of new, healthy cells. Free radicals induced oxidative stress is a leading cause of the inflammation that creates the pain and discomfort of arthritis.

Since beginning his journey with C60, Lepage has decreased his dosage of pharmaceutical pain medication and has been able to return to his old workout routine that was otherwise impossible before being introduced to C60. He recommends to anyone currently suffering from arthritis to consider C60 oil as an alternative solution to pain management, “After suffering for over 10 years I thought I’d never find relief from the chronic pain I was experiencing,” says Lepage, “C60 oil changed my life.”

Bay Alarm Medical Announces Support For 4G LTE Cellular Networks

Bay Alarm Medical (https://www.BayAlarmMedical.com), a leading provider of medical alert systems for the elderly, today debuted two new products using AT&T’s 4G LTE cellular network.

“In an emergency, you want to be sure your medical alert system can send and receive a clear signal,” says Alan Wu, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bay Alarm Medical. “4G LTE is more reliable than traditional 3G cellular networks and provides extra coverage, giving you more confidence that your alert will be received.”

Medical alert systems allow seniors to quickly get help in case of a fall or other medical emergency. With the push of a button, seniors can signal a call center that is monitored 24/7. Trained operators then notify first responders and help communicate the senior’s condition and medical history.

Bay Alarm Medical is adding 4G LTE support to both its In-Home and GPS medical alert options. The company’s in-home system has a cellular option for homes that do not have a landline telephone. Bay Alarm Medical’s GPS system is designed to work both at home and away from home. It is also the only system of its type to offer caregiver tracking, allowing family members or other caregivers to check the senior’s location at any time.

Wu says that GPS medical alerts can be especially effective over the AT&T 4G LTE network. “Our tests have shown that GPS tracking is much improved with the new network,” says Wu.

Support for 4G LTE is important, given that cellular providers will begin retiring their 3G networks over the next two years. Verizon has already announced that its 3G network will be shut down by the end of 2019. Older 3G cellular equipment is not designed to work with 4G networks, so the retirement of 3G ends the equipment’s useful life.

AT&T’s 4G LTE network has rolled out nationwide and covers the majority of the United States.

About Bay Alarm Medical 
Bay Alarm Medical is an arm of Bay Alarm, one of the nation's oldest alarm monitoring companies. The company offers landline, cellular and mobile GPS medical alert systems together with 24/7 monitoring by professionally training emergency operators who contact family members, friends, neighbors and, if necessary, local 911 emergency services.

ASEOHosting Warns of the Growing Threat of SEO Spam Attacks

ASEOHosting, a provider of SEO-friendly hosting, has issued an advisory about search engine optimization spam attacks.

Per a recent report by security firm Sucuri, 51% of website hacks in 2018 were directly connected to SEO spam campaigns. This attack family is up 7.3% from 2017, making it one of the web’s fastest-growing attack methods. They are also, says the firm, difficult to detect, typically occurring via PHP, database injections, or .htaccess redirects.

The good news, says ASEOHosting Director of Business Development Daniel Page, is defending against SEO spam is actually relatively simple. Although SEO spam attacks may be more targeted than malware or ransomware, they generally exploit the same vulnerabilities as any web-based attack. This means that websites with strong security have as much to fear from SEO spam as from any other tactic.

“Though it can be hard to determine whether or not your website is infected after the fact, many of the same security best practices that defend against other attack vectors are also an effective defense against SEO spam,” Page explains. “First, keep your software up to date. I would also recommend that you carefully curate user content, and protect all user accounts with strong passwords.”

Page acknowledges that in some situations, even a website with strong security may be compromised. With that in mind, he also recommends using Google Analytics to watch for suspicious activity such as unusual traffic spikes, running regular malware scans, checking the sitemap for unapproved changes, and occasionally browsing one’s website as a user.

“Most web-based hacks, particularly spam attacks, are not particularly sophisticated,” Page notes. “They can most often be detected and defeated by simple vigilance. Pay careful attention to activity on your website, and be careful about the software you install, the content you allow, and the people you grant backend access to.”

“Criminals usually choose the path of least resistance - if you aren’t an easy target, they’ll probably look elsewhere,” he adds.

Rigaku Analytical Devices Demonstrates Improved Handheld LIBS Capabilities for Scrap Metal Sorting at ISRI 2019

Rigaku Analytical Devices (RAD), a leading pioneer of handheld and portable spectroscopic analyzers, will demonstrate its latest handheld analyzer for metal alloy analysis this week at the annual exposition of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) in booth #810 in Los Angeles, CA USA. The Rigaku KT-100S laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) handheld analyzer provides an alternative for identification of a larger number of alloys, in a truly ruggedized form factor for use in the toughest industrial environments.

The KT-100S handheld LIBS metal analyzer provides on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloys, including aluminum grades, with improved detection limits and the ability to analyze more alloys. This includes ample precision for low alloy steels, stainless steels, as well as high temperature alloys and the added detection of lithium in aluminum alloys. In addition, the KT-100S analyzer is designed to be the ideal analytical tool for use in scrap metal yards because of its low cost of ownership, MIL-STD 810G drop-test certification and IP-54 protection rating.

Another major benefit to the user is that because the KT Series of handheld LIBS analyzers utilize a laser excitation source, there is minimal to no regulatory licensing requirements.

“We look forward to demonstrating the advanced capabilities of the KT-100S analyzer this week at ISRI,” said David Mercuro, LIBS Sales and Product Director at Rigaku Analytical Devices. Our handheld LIBS platform was specifically built for this audience and we are confident we have the solution to expand their sorting capabilities for an even greater profit.”

Visitors to the booth will also benefit from the chance to win a one month free rental of the KT-100S LIBS analyzer, as well as special show pricing on new and a limited number of CPO analyzers.

More information about handheld and portable spectroscopic analyzers from Rigaku is available at http://www.rigaku.com/KT100S.

The 5 Best App Design Trends of 2019 – Plus, the Top 28 App Design Agencies, According to DesignRush

In 2022, consumers will download over 258 billion mobile applications.

But despite that large number of app downloads, the competition to actually get users to download an app and use it regularly is still stiff. Digital brands need to find ways to stand out in the market.

DesignRush.com, a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, determined the best mobile app design trends of 2019. These aesthetics, styles and features captivate consumers, encourage better download rates, and inspire users to use the mobile apps regularly.

The top 5 app design trends of 2019 include:

1. Bold Colors

Minimalism may have reigned supreme in years’ past, but bright, bold colors are taking over in 2019.

By incorporating bolder hues in their app design, brands have the opportunity to stand out with an iconic, recognizable brand identity.

In addition, brands can strategically employ color psychology, meaning they could influence a consumer’s associations, emotions, mindset or desires through specific colors, thus increasing revenue.

2. Prioritizing Swiping

As smartphone devices use fewer and fewer traditional buttons, brands will likely rely on swiping as the primary action users will take to interact with the app.

A swiping gesture in a mobile app is helpful for notifications, a traditional customer journey, gamification, and niche-specific apps such as dating apps.

3. Linear User Flow

Linear user flows create an exceptional user experience by building a very specific start, middle and end to a mobile app interaction.

By streamlining the way an app works to one particular journey instead of free-for-all navigation, users can feel more comfortable completing a transaction or fully converting.

Linear user flows work well for eCommerce apps and certain service-based apps, such as rideshares or food delivery platforms.

4. Designing For Larger Screens

Smartphones are only getting larger, and with these bigger devices comes more design and development flexibility.

Brands will increasingly develop full-screen experiences that improve overall user experience and brand visibility. This will allow videos, pictures and animations to become even more clear.

In addition, creating an app for a larger full-size screen could improve brand awareness by allowing the mobile interface to mimic its corresponding desktop version with more accuracy.

5. Creative Animation

DesignRush predicts that brands will double down on their use of innovative animation.

Video-based multimedia communicates information to consumers more effectively – and that can be replicated in a brand-building manner through motion graphics and custom animations.

Plus, animations during loading times and transitional slides can ease interstitial anxiety, which improves user experience and increases the likelihood that a consumer will convert.

“As more and more brands realize the potential of mobile devices, they will need to differentiate themselves from the beginning to secure long-term success,” says DesignRush Founder and Executive Director Gabriel Shaoolian. “By incorporating the latest app design trends, businesses can build a strong consumer base and improve their brand awareness.”

DesignRush’s Agency Listing section features the top local and global mobile app design companies. Some of the top app design agencies from around the world include:

1. Agicent App Company

MedTech Momentum Launches the “MT-7 Framework for Growth” to Help Medical Device Organizations Turn Digital Marketing into a Growth Engine

MedTech Momentum, Inc. (http://www.MedTechMomentum.com) a leading Medical Device Marketing Agency, announced today the launch of a new marketing initiative, the “MT-7 Framework for Growth.” The announcement is the result of 5 years of research, testing and data analysis, aimed developing a straight forward step-by-step formula that leverages the power of the Internet and Social Media to turn marketing into a growth engine.

Guillaume Viallaneix, founder and President of MedTech Momentum, and medical devices expert, stated today that “In the past few years, many healthcare organizations have come to us expressing their confusion about the best way to use the Internet and Social Media to grow and create value. We’re excited to announce that the “MT-7 Framework for Growth” not only provides the answers that many executives are looking for, but most importantly, it gives them a blueprint for targeting the right audience, boosting awareness, generating leads and transforming the leads into customers.”

The “MT-7 Framework for Growth” changes the paradigm, as it makes the customer the hero of the marketing strategy, not the company nor its technologies, no matter how great. The framework is a 7-step process that starts with clearly identifying who should be the ideal customer, what message should be crafted to help him/her solve his/her problems, and how to position the company as the guide to help him/her succeed.

MedTech Momentum knows from experience that people buy solutions to their problems, not product features. Companies that make their “greatness” and the “uniqueness” of their technologies the center-piece of their marketing strategy simply miss the point. Their campaigns will be considered by the target audience as noise, and simply ignored. The “MT-7 Framework for Growth” turns the table around and make the customer the hero of the story.

According to Guillaume Viallaneix, “MedTech companies have no choice, but to apply the principles of the “The MT-7 Framework for Growth.” Based on our data-driven research, we know what marketing strategies provide the best ROI, and we are sharing the formula with all the MedTech organizations willing to listen. Of course, we don’t expect everybody to come to our agency for help to get it done, but we do expect every CEO, VP of Marketing and Marketing Managers to make it the center piece of their new marketing strategy.”

2019 will be the year of “MT-7 Framework for Growth” in the Medical Device Industry. MedTech Momentum is proud to make it part of its unique “all-inclusive membership program.”

In addition, in 2019 the company will be launching a comprehensive workshops initiative, with a series of “Public Workshops” strategically positioned around the country, as well as “Private On-Site Ones” to help individual companies guide their marketing strategy and allow for alignment across the organization.

About MedTech Momentum 
Founded in 2013, MedTech Momentum is an experienced full-service Medical Marketing Agency headquartered in the greater Orlando, Florida area. Applying its signature “MT-7 Framework for Growth” formula, the group is 100% focused on helping medical device organizations develop and execute sustainable and scalable value-driven growth strategies.

Introhive to Debut Data Enrichment Marketing Technology at LMA

As marketing modernization picks up steam in the legal industry, Introhive, the leader in relationship intelligence and sales automation technology, plans to share its newest solution, Introhive Cleanse™, at the Legal Marketing Association (LMA) annual conference April 8-10 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta.

The largest continuing education event for legal marketing and business development professionals, LMA 2019 will host more than 1,500 legal marketers of all levels, 150 speakers, and dozens of preeminent solution providers, including Introhive.

“[LMA 2019] is a great annual opportunity for us to engage our legal customers,” said Introhive’s Marketing Director, Daniel Dowling. “It’s also a chance to talk to other firms that are looking for innovative technology to solve some hard problems, like lagging [customer relationship management (CRM)] software adoption, data quality issues and disparate marketing lists. There are a lot of firms looking to push their marketing and business development efforts to the next level.”

Dowling describes Introhive as a business-automation and artificial intelligence tool that gives its more than 140,000 global users a “bird’s eye view” of all their organization’s business-relationships, while automating previously manual data entry into CRM systems.

He added that Introhive is excited to debut their newest solution, Introhive Cleanse™, at this year’s show. Cleanse will support integrations with popular CRM tools, including Salesforce, OnePlace and Tier1.

Introhive Cleanse™: Beyond traditional Enterprise Relationship Management (ERM)

“Introhive customers are already pioneering the way the industry uses ERM technology to reduce administrative CRM data entry, thanks to features like signature scraping and pre-meeting digest reports,” Dowling said. “However, Cleanse takes their abilities to the next level.”

The latest complement to Introhive’s platform, Cleanse is a data enrichment tool that gives users increased data-update power.

“With Cleanse, partners, attorneys and data stewards have the ability to update all of a firm’s contact data in bulk and on-demand,” Dowling said.

“Now firms don’t need to worry about the hassle of time-consuming, expensive annual data-clean-up projects,” he continued. “Cleanse takes that hard work off their plate. So the professionals who rely on that database for business development and marketing campaigns can always count on accurate and up-to-date information.”

“We think it’s going to revolutionize the way the legal industry markets and builds new business,” Dowling added.

Introhive currently serves Global 100 and AmLaw 200 legal firm clients across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

“No matter their size or focus, any legal firm that wants to succeed needs to have a strong understanding of its relationship network first, and the ability to derive insights from that. And that’s exactly what Introhive does,” added Introhive’s Head of North American Sales, Adam Draper.

“It’s been gratifying to watch the firms we partner with become empowered by Introhive’s automation of their manual processes—like syncing contacts and activities,” Draper continued. “They’re using the platform not just to save time entering marketing contact info, but also to prep for meetings, cross-sell their services and keep an eye on engagement. Overall, it’s just a much more modern approach, which a lot of today’s innovative firms are hungry for.”

Dowling added that Introhive is also a silver sponsor for this year's event, and will host a speaker panel, “How to Turn Your CRM into an Insights Engine.” Representatives from Osler, Reed Smith and Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh will discuss how their strategies for successful CRM implementation and user adoption drove innovation across their firms.

Legal marketers from more than 500 law firms across North America attend the two-day LMA conference each year to network, learn, discuss industry trends and challenges, and explore solutions for their firms. Visit http://www.legalmarketing.org/annual_conference for more information about LMA 2019.

Extreme Energy Solutions’ Extreme Kleaner Reaches Markets in Mexico under New Distribution Agreement

Extreme Energy Solutions, the parent company of Extreme Kleaner, was able to come to agreement with distribution and marketing partner, ExtremeKleanerMX S.A. de C.V., to expand the market reach of the popular non-toxic, biodegradable multi-purpose cleaner-degreaser into Mexico and other Latin American countries, thus making Extreme Kleaner a recognized international brand.

ExtremeKleanerMX S.A. de C.V. (ExtremeKleaner MX) is located in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico, and is led by Cole Wilson and executive team. ExtremeKleaner MX had focused on test markets with selected commercial and industrials trial clients where feedback and data was collected about the effectiveness of Extreme Kleaner. Trial test results revealed positive commentary, and demand for the green cleaner took off from there.

“The ExtremeKleanerMX team is excited to introduce the Extreme Kleaner family of products to Mexico’s Markets. Commercial trials have exceeded our customers’ expectations, and with environmentally friendly products rapidly gaining popularity in Mexico, we expect our retail presence to expand quickly,” shared Wilson.

“We are honored to be working with ExtremeKleanerMX, as they have shown great enthusiasm about the product line, and have made the hard sweat equity investment to begin to develop a market that was previously out of our reach,” commented Samuel K. Burlum of Extreme Energy Solutions, “Extreme Kleaner has become a Main Street Premium Brand in the US, and we are eager to see how ExtremeKleanerMX will carry that momentum into markets in Mexico.”

Extreme Kleaner has rapidly built a consumer following in the US, and has been building upon its grass roots beginnings to reach every corner of Main Street USA. In the short few years Extreme Kleaner has been on the market, it has expanded its availability at over 500+ retailer locations stateside, become an official partner of Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona 500, and a sponsor of the ARCA Menards Series.

Extreme Kleaner began to make an international presence when it partnered with Orgill Distributors, who provides goods to hardware, auto parts, grocery, and variety stores in Canada, Mexico, US, and international island nations. First international exposure came when stores located on international island nations became some of the first adopters of Extreme Kleaner in the Orgill network.

Product is now available in Mexico via ExtremeKleanerMX which has an exclusive ability to build up the market in Mexico beyond Extreme Energy Solutions’ original foundation. Those seeking the product in Mexico should contact ExtremeKleanerMX.

“This is another example of how a small business in an emerging market can have a positive effect on the economy,” continued Burlum, “a US made product is introduced and expands into a new international market, thus creating opportunities on both sides of the border.”

“We also appreciate the collaborative efforts ExtremeKleanerMX and their team put into the entire process of preparing the actual product for Mexico. This included translation of the label from English to Spanish, compliance approvals, and even an entire new marketing strategy that best connects consumers in Mexico to the Extreme Kleaner brand,” concluded Burlum.

Extreme Kleaner is made in the USA, and dedicates a portion of its sales to assisting Veterans and their families in need. Extreme Kleaner began as a small regional brand in the northeast, offering its product locally at farmer’s markets and online in 2012. After a complete rebranding exercise, Extreme Kleaner became adopted by larger co-op groups and retailers.

Extreme KleanerMX is dedicated to offering Extreme Kleaner to commercial and industrial clients, and to consumers through retailers and local merchants. Extreme Kleaner is available in a 32 ounce spray bottle and in gallon size containers.

Lofta Announces The Most Advanced Home Sleep Apnea Test on the Market

Lofta, Inc., a San Diego based company revolutionizing the home sleep apnea test space announced a commercial agreement with Itamar Medical Ltd. which advances their revolutionary “Complete Path” home sleep apnea testing and treatment program.

Lofta will integrate Itamar’s clinically validated diagnostic tool into their streamlined process. The Itamar Medical WatchPAT is a portable sleep diagnostic device that uses peripheral arterial tonometry to enable simple, and accurate testing without the complexity and discomfort of traditional airflow-based tests.

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that deprives the body and brain of much-needed oxygen, and can be a contributing factor to other serious conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, adult asthma, acid reflux and weight gain.

Lofta brings the most advanced home sleep apnea test on the market to its clients using Itamar Medical’s WatchPAT. The Lofta Complete Path takes clients from sleep apnea diagnosis, to sleep apnea treatment in as little as 5-days all from the comfort of home.

CEO, Jay Levitt explains;

“A desire to provide a simple, accurate, reliable solution to those struggling with sleep-disordered breathing and sleep apnea drove the decision to use Itamar’s WatchPAT technology. Lofta is committed to making the sleep apnea diagnosis process accessible, and simple to everyone through advanced technology, and a user-friendly approach that has been clinically validated against polysomnography.”

“Historically, the process of getting diagnosed and treated for sleep apnea has been challenging for patients who often avoid over-night sleep labs that contribute to the complexity and cost of an already difficult journey. Unfortunately, this means people who have a potentially life-threatening condition go undiagnosed, and untreated.”

“Lofta clears the way to better sleep by providing access to sleep apnea screening, testing, online diagnosis and comprehensive treatment support all from one place - the client’s home.”

Levitt continues, “The WatchPAT is a great match for our clients looking for something quick, easy, and hassle-free. Unlike other sleep tests that require nasal tubes and multiple components, Itamar’s device is as easy as putting on a wrist watch. With this in mind, we think it’s the perfect tool for Lofta’s Complete Path program.”

Despite Lofta’s commitment to ease and convenience, the company is also committed to all professional best practices, and the highest level of client success, and support.

Lofta’s Director of Client Services, Laura Avilez, explains;

“Sleep apnea is a serious condition and should be treated. For this reason, the medical aspects of the Lofta Complete Path are overseen by independent board-certified sleep physicians. We aren’t your typical home sleep apnea testing company that ships out tests with little guidance or support. We stay with our clients every step of the way. We love Itamar’s WatchPAT because its advanced technology provides quick comprehensive test results. And, our clients appreciate that we can explain the results of their study in a thorough, and accessible way. When people are better informed about their condition, they are vested in their therapy outcomes.”

Along these lines, Levitt points out the distinctive aspect of Lofta’s business model, which he believes will be enhanced by the Itamar technology, “Lofta’s objective is to create long-time relationships with clients by making better sleep easy, and accessible.”

About Lofta

Lofta is redefining how people are diagnosed and treated for sleep apnea and chronic snoring with life changing results. By leveraging telemedicine technology, one-on-one customer service, and a consumer-centric approach, Lofta offers sleep apnea testing and treatment solutions on pace with the rapidly changing health and wellness environment - when and where clients need them the most.

Motivated by a desire to streamline the complex process of sleep testing, Lofta makes a better night sleep accessible quickly and easily by removing the obstacles that compound an already exhausting problem - the maze of insurance requirements, inconvenient overnights at a sleep lab, and an all-too-common lack of support - Lofta clears the way to healthy sleep.

Lofta’s Complete Path is only part of the company’s story. Lofta also seeks to cultivate enduring relationships through its innovative high touch therapy program featuring dedicated sleep coaches and one-on-one support at every step.

As clients continue their treatment journey, Lofta leverages advanced technology to report sleep outcomes daily, and in real-time providing a continuous feedback loop to optimize ongoing therapy. Through high-tech, high-touch engagement, Lofta clients achieve long-term sleep wellness.

All Lofta’s signature programs, including its comprehensive e-commerce experience, are available at Buyminicpap.com, and in early 2019 Lofta will launch its new web experience at Lofta.com.

Three times a year, Interact Marketing recruits a new class of interns to participate in an immersive, 12-week internship that cultivates knowledge of three facets of digital marketing: search engine optimization, social media strategy, and web design.

With such a rich pool of applicants hailing from educational institutions including Mount Saint Mary, SUNY New Paltz, Marist and Ramapo, the application process is competitive. Applicants undergo several rounds of interviews to ensure their time with the company will be a good match. The internship program consists of an educational component during the first half of the semester to solidify students’ knowledge base of digital marketing, as well as company-wide processes and procedures, followed by hands-on work with oversight by account managers. Interns have access to a library of learning materials, and have the opportunity to get Google certified over the course of their internship.

“Exit interviews with our interns have shown us that they really get a lot of value out of the experience, plus several have landed jobs at Fortune 1000 companies. We’ve also won several internship awards from local colleges,” remarks Interact Marketing CEO, Joe Beccalori. “Our interns are gaining hands-on experience in digital marketing, which can be a gap in academic coursework for those working toward a marketing degree. Some of our interns even choose to apply for a job with the company following their internship.”

In fact, Senior Account Manager, Cody Jackson, began his journey with Interact Marketing as an intern in 2014. On his experience joining the team as an intern and becoming a leader at the company, Cody said, “The internship program at Interact gave me the opportunity to be immersed in a growing digital marketing agency without commuting to New York City. As a college student, that saved me a lot of valuable time and money. In my five years here, I’ve been able to go from learning SEO best practices to instructing a team to drive results for clients.”

Interns from this class were recruited from SUNY New Paltz, a quick thirty-minute drive away. In the Spring and Fall, Interact participates in college career fairs where the majority of interns make their first point of contact with staff. Interact Marketing was proud to be awarded for the internship program, including recognition from Marist College and an award for Valuable Contributions & Continued Support to the Internship Program from SUNY New Paltz.

New Coloredge Strategic Initiative E Digitally Transforms Visual Marketing For Retail Industry

Coloredge, the largest provider of visual marketing solutions for upscale brands and retailers, announced today a new, national strategic initiative that will deepen Coloredge’s technology and service offerings to enhance its competitive edge in today’s rapidly evolving retail market. The initiative, which spans three key parts of Coloredge’s business, will leverage digital technologies to change the way in which customers can adapt more easily to rapidly changing paradigms and allows Coloredge to be more customer centric.

The initiative has been underwritten by a new multi-million-dollar investment from its privately held owner, Saints Capital. The amount of the investment was not disclosed.

Transforming How Business is Done

“We’re very excited to move ahead with this transformative new initiative at Coloredge,” said Emmanuel Doe, CEO of Coloredge. “This retail industry is evolving faster than ever, and with this evolution comes the need for new capabilities and technologies. This new initiative we are putting into place will dramatically enhance how the retail marketplace can utilize the new enhanced framework of Coloredge to respond quickly to their customers and adopt the digital transformation that is upon them. When fully implemented, it will enable us to deliver exciting, timely and revenue generating results for our customers, vendors and partners,” Doe added.

“This latest investment in Coloredge underscores our deep commitment to the long-term success of Coloredge as a force for transformation in the industry,” said Ken Sawyer, Managing Director and Co- Founder of Saints Capital. “The eventual winners in this marketplace will be those companies that understand how to apply innovative approaches and accompanying technology to the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s customers. That’s what Coloredge is committing to with this new initiative.”

A Broad Three-Point Plan

The new strategic initiative announced by Coloredge is focused on three key areas:

1. A new collaborative digital technology platform to respond to the new consumer lifecycle. As part of an intensive expansion of digital and creative capabilities, Coloredge will be investing in a new collaborative system that will enable design, manufacturing, asset and creative sharing among Coloredge, clients and partners. This will also provide creative experiential insight, manufacturing templates and improve time and cost to market. This is an especially timely enhancement as the retail market looks for new ways to adopt digital transformation.

2. Expansion of East Coast Operations. The initiative will support the purchase of additional best in class equipment and highly skilled staff, resulting in an improved total cost of ownership for customers. The expansion will help Coloredge deliver the high-end visual displays that result in exceptional and memorable consumer experiences. It will also help Coloredge deliver more customized capabilities to indie and startup brands who seek a trusted partner as they move beyond direct-to-consumer and e-commerce and into retail environments.

3. Funding for strategic acquisitions. The new capital will provide new funds with which Coloredge can potentially make strategic acquisitions, with an initial focus on the West Coast. This will boost Coloredge’s national presence and provide additional leverage for effectively serving its top 1,000 customers in key segments.

JWRX Uses Micro Moments to Increase Content Marketing Reach

Content marketing was introduced as a marketing tool a few short years ago. In its early stages it was easy to get attention in a news style fashion using this concept.

In 2018 content marketing has gotten very busy and loud. Businesses are having a harder time being seen and heard. Content marketing worked well for awhile. Then social media channels began to dampen the reach. Consumers need to have content flash in front of them that they identify in micro moments that capture attention.

That’s why Jana Rowland and Jt Clough decided to merge their companies together to form JWRX.io and provide a real solution by simplifying the process as a team.

Rowland and Clough noticed a common theme with their marketing firm clients. Most were trying to be on any and all social media channels. Messages were too long and every message does not portray well on every channel. JWRX techniques go against what many marketing firms will direct their clients to do. Instead of being everywhere they’ve used micro moments on the right channels for each client, increasing reach with engagement.

JWRX.io is a Business Consulting and Marketing Content Firm that solves complex business problems by leveraging content and technology using micro moment concepts to capture people’s attention. Clough has been in marketing since 1988, while Rowland was born in 1988. She’s now been in the marketing world for the last 6 years while Clough has been marketing for 30 years as of May 2018. Follow their story on LinkedIn JWRX Business Page.

What these two dynamic women bring to the current marketing world is the combination of understanding how to market with transparency using tried and true methods while weaving the best of technology into how and why a marketing message is published. When it gets down to it, they are known to take the fluff out of what most big agencies will tell a company it needs and get down to the reality of how to capture attention to create real paying customers.

JWRX uses a simple formula to catch those moments with content that answer “I want to know” moments, “I want to go” moments, “I want to do” moments and “I want to buy” moments. They then take those moments and transfer them to a simple system any business from small to large can use to speak directly to their consumer.

JWRX is a Consulting Firm that helps our clients (action-takers) SOLVE Complex Business Problems by Leveraging Content and Technology. We help C-Level Executives to small business owners create authentic reach that converts to real customers.

Virtual DBS Utilizing Data Driven Banner Advertising Services

Virtual DBS, the marketing agency that specializes in banner advertising services, is now utilizing their enhanced data to improve options for reaching a specialized audience. Businesses can now select audiences based on location down to the zip code, gender, income, personal interests, age, job title, marital status, shopping habits, credit rating, political affiliation and more. These display marketing services make it easy, and cost effective, to reach millions of consumers in a short period of time and ads can be displayed on websites and mobile apps. 

"We have access to hundreds of millions of addresses and consumer information. The key to successful digital marketing banner ads is that you have to display them at the right time, to the right audience with high-quality content. We can help design the content and make sure that the right audience is being introduced to the promotion as well as your brand. The ability to not only target an audience, but also the device and platform the content is viewed on is a serious advantage that business owners need to utilize. Imagine being able to send someone an ad on Facebook and then turn around and show them the same ad on one of their favorite apps. That's a great way to get people to recognize your brand and engage in your product." Virtual DBS Representative 

By combining the efforts of display marketing services with SEO, social media and other forms of advertising, businesses have multiple opportunities to reach their ideal audience while also improving the quality of tracking. When determining ROI, there are always several variables that need to be taken into account. Because tracking is complex and usually focuses on only impressions, traffic and so forth, the more banner advertising services and other options a business utilizes, the more detailed the tracking can be. 

"Let's say someone is running digital marketing banner ads along with Facebook and email. We can show them the tracking, how many opens, impressions, clicks and so forth. But what happens after that? Utilizing Google analytics and SEO services we are able to show that a certain amount of people called the business or asked for directions to the store via Google. That helps to get a better understanding of the ROI for marketing campaigns which is essential as you move forward.

There is a strong appeal for work-from-home job positions but few of them offer the earning potential that most sales opportunities present.

RemoteSalesReps.Com was originally launched in 2011 as HireACloser.Com which specialized in recruiting, training and managing remote high-ticket sales teams, mostly focusing in the coaching and software industries.

The driving factor behind the initial launch was that any talented sales rep with a phone and online access could easily earn 6 figures from the comfort of their own homes. Hire A Closer was a great success but was limited by the number of teams they could manage while trying to scale. This is when the Cawiezell Brothers decided to make the move to the recruitment model (Remote Sales Reps) allowing them to connect more amazing opportunities with top level talent.

“We are a global economy and with the overwhelming rise of virtual companies, there is no reason to limit your talent selection. We are trying to create organization in the chaotic remote sales job market.” Ben Cawiezell states during their upcoming launch.

Good strategy leads to high return on investment since it's improving the conversion rate of Traffic

One of your business’ New Year’s resolutions should be to improve your conversion rates. This strategy has a very high return on investment since you’re improving the conversion rate of traffic you’re already receiving instead of trying to find and attract new audiences. Here are 3 ways to improve your conversion rates in 2018, based on research conducted by Blog For Web. Every single business in the world needs to improve conversion rates and 2018 will most likely be the most difficult year yet to do this. That is due to the fact we are looking at customers that are savvy and that know much more than in the past. They know how to research information so converting has to rely on a new approach.
 
Prioritize Personalization
 
Personalization of content shows your customers that you care about their interests. One strategy to improve your conversion rates is to offer different content to repeat customers and new visitors. One benefit of this approach is that recommending things based on their personal preferences has a higher conversion rate than generic ads. It even improves engagement with your brand and the odds someone will come back to your site even if they don’t buy from you today. If you don’t know how to do this, you could work with a firm to implement it. The ideal case is to personalize sites based on user history without requiring them to create accounts, since this drives away many potential customers.
 
Design Answer Pages to Provide Answers Quickly
 
When designing answer pages, create separate pages for each answer so that visitors don’t have to search the entire page for the answer. Don’t forget to list questions as paragraph headings to make it easier to find those questions, followed by the answers right after them. Another variation on this theme is to give the short answer to the question before going into detail. If you spend a paragraph qualifying your answer, you’ll drive away those who want the ten words or less explanation. An alternative is to give the generic answer followed by a qualification, especially if you can use it as a lead into scheduling an appointment with your experts, or buying your informational product. Artificial intelligence is starting to add depth to this discussion. For example, chatbots to answer people’s questions immediately are coming down in cost, and they may be able to provide answers whether narrowing down the client’s list of potential options to finding the older product they want.
 
Have a Single, Clear Call to Action
 
First, have a call to action button on pages where you’re asking someone to take action. If you’re trying to get someone to like, share and subscribe to your social media marketing, you shouldn’t be trying to sell your product to them as well. Don’t try to sell them the product on the page and give them a social media link, too, or you risk them going to social media sites and failing to complete the sale. Ensure that the call to action button stands out and makes it clear what it does, whether they’re signing up for an email marketing list, scheduling an appointment, buying an item or downloading a technical white paper. And remember to give them the reason to click the CTA button, whether giving them a discount or sending them the information they want.  Applying these few techniques in 2018 will be sure to increase your conversion rates if used properly. Make sure that you use as many of these methods as well as other time-tested techniques to make sure that your website performs at its full potential.

Broadcom to Nominate Slate of 11 Independent, Highly Qualified Directors for Election at Qualcomm's 2018 Annual Meeting

Broadcom intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a proxy statement, accompanied by a BLUE proxy card, in connection with Qualcomm's 2018 Annual Meeting. Qualcomm has announced that its 2018 Annual Meeting will be held on March 6, 2018.

On November 6, 2017, Broadcom proposed to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Qualcomm for per share consideration of .00 in cash and stock, consisting of .00 in cash and .00 in Broadcom shares. Broadcom's offer represents a 28% premium over the closing price of Qualcomm's common stock on November 2, 2017, the last unaffected trading day prior to media speculation regarding a potential transaction, and a premium of 33% to Qualcomm's unaffected 30-day volume-weighted average price. The Broadcom proposal stands whether Qualcomm's pending acquisition of NXP Semiconductors N.V. ("NXP") is consummated on the currently disclosed terms of 0 per NXP share or is terminated.

Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadcom, stated, "We have heard from many Qualcomm stockholders who have expressed their desire for Qualcomm to engage with us. We also continue to receive positive feedback from customers  and, having had initial meetings with certain relevant antitrust authorities, remain confident that any regulatory requirements necessary to complete a combination will be met in a timely manner. Although we are taking this step, it remains our strong preference to engage in a constructive dialogue with Qualcomm. We have repeatedly attempted to engage with Qualcomm, and despite stockholder and customer support for the transaction, Qualcomm has ignored those opportunities. The nominations give Qualcomm stockholders an opportunity to voice their disappointment with Qualcomm's directors and their refusal to engage in discussions with us. In light of the significant value our proposal provides for Qualcomm stockholders, we believe Qualcomm stockholders would be better served by new independent, highly qualified nominees who are committed to maximizing value and acting in the best interests of Qualcomm stockholders."

To ensure continuity, Broadcom would support a decision by the 11 new directors, upon their election, to increase the size of the Board and reappoint Mark D. McLaughlin, Anthony J. "Tony" Vinciquerra and Jeffrey W. Henderson as directors.

Broadcom's nominees for the Qualcomm Board are:

Customers buying on the net are lapping up coupon codes in millions.
 
According to an estimate, a little more than 300 billion coupons were distributed in 2012.

For example, integrity botanicals coupon offers discounts on numerous skin care, body care, and hair care products containing natural or organic ingredients.
 
Digital coupons are offering merchants’ more flexibility in their deals. They set limits on the validity of the coupons, on how many times a consumer can use a coupon, and also discontinue the deal when the promotion kits its target limit. 

“Retailers are smart when they offer coupons”, says a stay at home mom. “I am always fastidious when I choose to apply these”. 

Shoppers seem to be smarter. 

“A company stands to lose its credibility if its coupons are not functional”, says a spokesperson for Don’tPayAll.

Don’tPayAll is inviting companies to list their coupon codes on its website and help consumers save money.

“Who does not want to save a few bucks by applying coupons?” says a Dallas housewife. “I always look for American apparel promo codes while shopping for a hoodie for my dog”.

“It can be a frustrating experience to apply the coupon code at the last leg of our buying process and find it isn’t working”, says a college sophomore. 

But coupon codes may not work for several reasons. There could be exclusions, restrictions, or the user may not have entered it correctly.

Don’tPayAll is making it convenient for shoppers to regulate their online spending.
