Rich Bradley, Printing, Promotional Items, Powerful Publicity

by Jason Sanders on January 13, 2010

RichBradleyWhen people ask us “what makes you different?” there are two ready answers — one is that we can take almost any project from conception through production, starting with graphic design right up through the printing process. Our second major point of differentiation is our expertise. With almost 20 years of experience in marketing and public relations, I can offer our clients new and fresh ideas and concepts, instead of simply “pushing products.”

For nearly two decades, I’ve worked in public relations and marketing. I use these experiences to give people ideas, and also to question their own ideas. One compliment we received from a client was “you talk me out of more things than you talk me into.” While we love to have clients spend money, it’s more important — especially in today’s economic climate — to spent money wisely. Printing and promotional products, if used correctly and effectively, can be powerful marketing tools in helping a company get noticed and stay top of mind.

I’m originally from Northeast Philadelphia. I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Journalism, and worked for a variety of newspapers including the Northeast Philadelphia Times, the Philadelphia Daily News and the Philadelphia Inquirer. During that time, a series of articles I authored were named the “Best Sports Story” of the year by the Philadelphia Press Association.

I went back to school to earn my Masters degree in Sports Administration from Temple University. While there, I worked for a minor-league basketball team, before moving to California to become the Media Relations Coordinator for The Upper Deck Company. I came back to the East Coast a few years later, where I worked for Fleer trading cards for over 6 years as a Public Relations Coordinator and product manager. In addition to writing numerous articles for various publications, I was also quoted as an industry expert and was cited for some of his unique ideas with trading cards.

Diversification vs. Specialization — which is right for you?

Rich Bradley

On this week’s radio show, we touched on the subject of diversification vs. specialization. While we weren’t to come to a conclusion favoring one or the other, we were at least able to reach a consensus that it really depends on a number of factors, and that each business has to decide which is right [...]

Make it personal: the extras go a long way

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re going to give our clients and potential clients a little love. Actually, a whole lotta love (wow…didn’t think I’d be able to work a Led Zeppelin reference into a chat about publicity.)
 One way to get some good publicity for yourself and your company is to keep things at a personal level. We’re [...]

Rich Bradley

 If you’re looking for a unique way to promote your business, you shouldn’t have to look too far.

In fact, you [...]

Be the expert!

Rich Bradley

One way to gain exposure for yourself and/or your business is to become a trusted source for the media. Did you ever wonder how television, radio or newspaper reporters find  someone to provide a comment on today’s happenings? It doesn’t happen by accident.
