August 15, 2012

Food Logistics Online MagazineAccording to Food Logistics Online Magazine,  “there are various options available to companies when it comes to transporting bulk products, including tanks, bins, and inflatable storage tanks.

Not only are newer products helping companies ensure hygiene and cargo security, they can also help companies reduce overall transportation costs.”

Later in the article EPT’s BIG Red Flexitanks and WinePacs are mentioned specifically as examples of “newer transportation products.”


Social Media For Manufacturers

August 8, 2012

7 Reasons Why Manufacturers Should Take Part In Social Media

You’ll want to fish where the fish are. Businesses that pay your bills, (your customers) and businesses whose bills you pay (your suppliers) are already there.

While It may be too late to be early, it’s still early enough not to be late!   You’ll want to stake your claim to your social media company name and keywords before someone else does.

  1. The cost to enter and participate in social media is miniscule when compared to traditional media. Social media can reduce your advertising and marketing costs.
  2. Social media can boost corporate authority and thought leadership.
  3. Social Media can generate feedback and help you improve customer service.
  4. Social media can significantly increase traffic to your business blog and company website.
  5. Social media can help monitor and manage your brand.
  6. Social media can provide free competitive research.
  7. Social media can improve search engine rankings for your website by consistently posting to your business blog and linking to your posts in your social media updates. In other words social media can help generate new prospects and leads.

    The formula for online social media marketing success for manufacturers is actually the same as it is for everyone else:

    More qualified traffic will generate more qualified leads, which will ultimately result in increased sales.
