Become an Industry Expert in Three Easy Steps

So you want to be revered by your colleagues as an industry expert? With a little effort you can become a stand-out. Even if you’re not looking to hit the speakers’ circuit, it’s good to know what’s going on in your industry. You’ll gain knowledge and the latest trends to increase efficiency, keep an eye on the competition, brush up on sales techniques and ultimately improve your bottom line. Here are three steps to get the scoop on your competition and become an industry expert.

Read up.
No matter your industry, there is at least one trade publication out there that caters to what you need to know. These magazines focus on the latest trends, best practices, success stories, vendors and upcoming events—all things critical to the success of your business. Expert Step: The editorial staff is often looking for content. Get to know them and ask if you can make contributions in your area of expertise. At the least, all companies have a success story or a best practice to share.

Surf’s up.
Do some online searches to see what online communities have formed in your industry. LinkedIn groups are a great place to start. Check out competitors’ websites, search for industry blogs and oftentimes the trade publications have additional online resources to help you out. Expert Step: Contribute to LinkedIn groups and comment on blog posts. If you’re not finding a LinkedIn group in your area of interest, start one of your own. You may even get a few additional customers.

Get out.
Nearly every industry has a local group that meets regularly to network and learn. For instance, marketers should join the American Marketing Association. Many of these groups bring in national experts to speak about the latest trends and share best practices. Trade shows are another place to find out what’s going on in your industry. Expert Step: Ask to speak to these local groups and many of the trade shows look for speakers to add the value of an educational component—a great way to become an industry leader.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
