Design One learned about NMI and VEDC on the Internet after being turned down by a traditional lender, praises the streamlined loan process and individual attention.

Nar Galvez’s Design One Printing helps local businesses succeed by creating a distinctive look and feel through logo/graphic design, branding, and marketing. “I enjoy dealing with business owners and companies and coming up with ideas on what works for their printing campaigns,” Galvez says. “It’s awesome to see something materialize from concept to production.”

Galvez knows about success, making good on Design One Printing’s business plan to double clients and revenues annually. The firm, which opened in March 2010 with a loan from NMI in partnership with VEDC, employs four people and Galvez anticipates adding another four jobs within the next two years.

Galvez, who learned about NMI and VEDC on the Internet after being turned down by a traditional lender, praises the streamlined loan process and individual attention. “NMI in partnership with VEDC gave me the confidence that no other banking institution could give me at my most challenging time due to a prior bankruptcy,” Galvez says.

Business Expos: Nothing But Benefits

There are endless ways to promote your business, especially in today’s technological world. We see advertising, postings, and publicity for tons of brands all the time, but how do you take it to the next level? How do you introduce your brand to the consumer in an interesting and personal way? You bring your brand to a Business and Marketing Exposition.

Bringing your company to a business exposition, or expo, is a way to network your business in a personal manner. You’re bringing your business directly to the consumer, putting a face to your brand. People don’t buy products; they buy the people that sell the products. Bringing the story of your brand to life for the consumer in real time develops that personal connection with your consumer. Building a personal B2C relationship brings your business to the top of the consumers evoke set.

Business Expos not only bring your brand directly to the target market, but they increase networking on a professional level. At a business expo, you’re surrounding yourself with hundreds of other businesses that could potentially benefit you. Keynote speakers, demonstrations and lectures are all at your finger tips to help you benefit your business, no matter what that business may be and improve your craft. Experts in different areas of business and marketing come from all over the country to share the secrets to success with business expos; the benefits of participating are infinite. Interacting with other businesses and building professional relationships can help you improve and build upon your company’s reputation.

Expositions allow you to take your brand and create an experience for the consumer. You’re live and on the spot at an expo, make it worth the consumers while. Experiential marketing tactics are some of the most successful ways to generate brand awareness, and what better way to do that than when the consumer is right in front of you. AdAge predicted in January that experiential marketing would be one of the top B2B marketing trends of 2015, and they were not wrong. Giving the consumer an experience, besides just selling them a product, has been extremely common and successful this year. Huge brands are creating these once in a lifetime an experience for their consumers and the outcome is incredible.  Using a business expo as your platform to kick start an experience would be ideal for smaller brands that are trying to increase awareness, as well as beneficial for larger companies that want to take a new direction in how they promote their services.

The New York Business Expo and the Market New York Expo are two exclusive expositions that bring small business and big businesses alike together to learn more about their businesses, their consumers and sharpen their professional skills.
