Let’s Give ‘Em Something to Talk About

Are people talking about your business? Your brand needs to pique enough interest to stay top of mind. Although social media is an absolutely essential way to harness the power of customer conversation, most word of mouth still occurs offline. Here are four fresh offline ideas to create buzz around your business.

Embrace Your Errand-ness
If frequenting your business falls along the lines of “errands” for your customers, don’t fight the stigma. Use it to your advantage. Customers who’ve been running around all morning will appreciate a cup of hot cocoa at the dry cleaners, mostly because it’s unexpected. It’s homey. It’s service-oriented. It gets people talking.

Tell a Story
Humanize your staff by spotlighting one of them. Ask a staff member with an eye for photography to take portraits of everyone, and feature an employee in your office (or the window) every month.

Add an interesting fact to the display, and you may get tongues wagging. The tidbit doesn’t have to be overly personal, but interesting enough to spark conversation. Your IT guru’s new Labrador may not matter to many, but if your receptionist golfed at St. Andrews last summer, you’ve struck gold.

Sign Here
If you’re a walk-in business, get a guestbook. Having a guestbook is a great way to focus on customer experience and adds charm to your office or store. Train staff to invite customers to sign it before they leave. Encourage them to write their thoughts about your business. If you leave colored pencils out, you’ll be surprised by how many more people participate.

Celebrate Minor Holidays
Last week we celebrated national Clean Your Desktop Day. If there’s a holiday for creating new folders and deleting old downloads, there’s certainly one that pertains to your business. Find that holiday, and design a special promotion around it. Tailors can offer free repairs on national Count Your Buttons Day, and bookstores can host a BOGO sale on Reading is Fun Day. The more obscure, the better.

The trick to making this idea work for you is advertising your special well in advance. Use word of mouth marketing to scare up some interest—because if they’re not talking about you, they’re not buying from you, either.

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.
