Water Communications creates “Design Wala Colour” campaign for Marshalls Wallcoverings

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, December 30, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Water Communications, Mumbai based 360 degree water communications logocommunications agency, recently unveiled the new campaign for its client, Marshalls Wallcoverings – ‘Design Wala Colour’. The campaign was released simultaneously across media including print, radio, digital and social media.

‘Design Wala Colour’ is based on the concept that – everything around us is so beautifully designed, be it embroidery on a dress or floral pattern on curtains or carvings on crockery or funky graphics on our bags. Design is indeed an important element in our lives. However, when it comes to our walls, we think only in terms of colours and not designs. By adding designs to our walls, we can make the world around us even more beautiful.

Speaking on the new campaign, Vandana Sethhi, Director – Water Communications, said, “When we think of renovating our homes or offices, we immediately start thinking different colours for different rooms and walls but for every thing else in life, we always think Colurs plus Design. So the idea is instead of thinking mere colour for our walls, we think DESIGN WALA COLOUR.”

“Marshalls Wallcoverings has pioneered the concept of wallcoverings in India. With ‘Design Wala Colour’, we once again intend to highlight to our audience the fact that walls, like other elements that are part of the home décor need to be designed and not just coloured. Take for example – windows, they are an extension of our walls and we invest a lot of time and money to get the best patterns and designs for the curtains. Similarly, we need to change our outlook towards our walls as well and go beyond just colours”, added Mona Menon, Director- Marshalls Wallcoverings.

On the concept of Design Wala Colour, Karan Sharma, Director – Marshalls Wallcoverings, said, “The wallcoverings segment in India has not yet reached its full potential in terms of being experimented by its consumers. With ‘Design Wala Colour’, we wanted to communicate the idea of ‘Designer Walls’ as opposed to just ‘Coloured Walls’ to our audience in a very simple, clear yet creative manner. We needed a campaign to touch the core concept of Design v/s Colour”.

Marshalls Wallcoverings, the far superior alternative than conventional way of wall renovation. It is indeed a wonder product with many advantages. Being the festive season and a category that is so close to the consumers especially during festive season when people are looking to get their homes renovated, we leveraged all the touch points where we could connect with our consumers – print, radio, digital and social media, adds Vandana Sethhi.

Homes Furnishings rings in Christmas with ‘Be A Santa’ Campaign

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, December 28, 2015 — /EPR MARKETING NEWS/ — Homes Furnishings, popular Mumbai-based Furnishings Company, recently launched its Christmas Campaign and touched the hearts of its customers by running a special ‘Be A Santa’ contest on the digital platform.

The popular Furnishings Conglomerate is always working at innovative ways to provide a unique customer experience. Just like its varied products offerings that are synonymous of beauty, sophistication and top class quality, its engagement programmes with its customers is also noteworthy.

The Brand always tries to strengthen its bond with the customers by connecting with them on Facebook along with its myriad of product offerings that are promoted through mix-media integrated platforms.

Festive times are fun times and Homes has found a novel way to reach out to its customers. Water Communications, The Creative Agency for Homes Furnishings, has designed the ‘Be A Santa’ campaign.

The idea was to encourage people to play real Santa in the lives of their loved ones and share their thoughts on how would they play their part. People with best replies would be gratified.

Talking about the campaign, Mr Gurvinder Singh, Managing Director, Homes Furnishings asserted, “The insight into running the Be A Santa contest stemmed from the fact that Santa is an epitome of love and kind gesture. He believes in spreading joy and bringing sunshine by way of gifting his loved ones. Joy begins at home so why not play Santa at home and surprise all those you care? This was the crux of the communication to awaken the Santa in people and make someone’s day. Moreover our Santa’s could explore a world of gifting options through our Homes Furnishings portfolio to make their search for the perfect gift easier.”

Ms Vandana Sethhi, Director Water Communications opines that Christmas is a special time to bond better with loved ones and bonding happens at home. This was a good enough reason to establish a special rapport between Homes Furnishings and its customers. Apart from traditional advertising, it becomes necessary to design special engagement programmes and relate with the target audience. While participants share their thoughts, there would be more engagement and better brand recall for the Homes Furnishings brand. Participants would get a unique platform to share their thoughts and get gratified with goodies for playing a great Santa. We intend to bring in more contests and activities around festivals and gratify the customers for participating in it.

Flexsystems Nominated For The Martha Stewart Made In America Award

San Diego Based Manufacturer, Flexsystems, is nominated in the textile category.

“We have been watching this contest over the past two years and felt that this might be the year to enter a unique plastic company into the mix, said Gracie Rutherford, the Marketing Director at this company.

“Since most if not all of the 2D pvc products like pvc labels, morale badges, 2D zipper pulls, custom sew on patches, logo patches and 2D zipper pulls are made in China, the idea that a USA company could compete against the monolithic giant, China, would be a compelling story” continues Rutherford.

We started supplying the surf and skate companies in California with our cool 2D pvc labels…they worked great on board shorts and flip flops and jackets. Not only do they not peel off or unravel like embroidery, the sun and salt water do not affect them at all. From there, we sold to the major labels in LA and New York…from Calvin Klein to JNCO to Guess and many others. Once the majority of the companies took their clothing packages offshore, we dove into the OEM part business and promotional product business.

And due to demand, we expanded our services. Soon we were not only sewing and heat sealing our custom PVC labels onto garments, bags and hats, we were doing assembly, drop shipping and fulfillment. We also branched into woven labels, morale badges with VELCRO fastening systems, custom patches for motorcycle clubs, police, firemen, martial arts, paintball, airsoft team patches, and most teams and clubs. We also created some custom motorcycle kickstand pads, 2D custom necklaces, pendants and matching earrings as well as unique luggage tags and 2D magnets.

“Probably the biggest news in the past two years is our exclusive agreement for a supply of medical grade PVC” said Melissa De La Rosa, the General Manager for Flexsystems. “The pvc material does not contain any phthalates. Instead, we use a corn ingredient.

“We feel that the Martha Stewart recognition would be a great coup for us and we will try our best to deserve this award. We can use some help before the voting begins, suggested Gary Smith, the Sales Manager at the company. “If you can go to our story on the Martha Stewart website and like or tweet about us, we would appreciate that! “Exclaimed Smith.

Immerse The Family Market In An Interactive Roadshow This Holiday Season

As the August holidays are fast approaching brands are presented with a great opportunity to try and win over the world’s toughest critics – kids.

The August holidays are a perfect time for brands with products and services aimed at the family market to raise brand awareness and drive engagement.

A recent example of how effective immersive marketing campaigns can be was seen in Brisbane, Australia. A shopping centre used Augmented Reality as part of an innovative campaign that saw children being given the opportunity to fend off lions and duel with pirates – a completely experiential marketing tool that parents and children were able to take part in.

The video; that can be viewed here shows how the interactive experience was able to involve children and their parents in the game by bringing animated children’s characters to life, attracting participants throughout the shopping centre. Mums, dads and kids could fight off lions, swim with fishes or take part in a swashbuckling duel with a pirate through the use of a LED screen, webcam, video and slick animation.

The Brisbane shopping centre also increased awareness by encouraging participants to share photos of their experience across its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels, further increasing engagement and promoting the event, certainly helping the shopping centre stand out from its competitors.

Another great way to engage the family market is through the interactive format of a roadshow truck from Event marketing Solutions.
Packing a punch with kids and parents alike, an immersive experience made possible by the team at EMS is a proven way to boost sales, especially during the lucrative holiday period. Brands can take centre stage on prime retail sites and help encourage extra sales by connecting with people as they shop on the high street.

“Providing a mobile showroom that is a sophisticated and interactive environment completely kitted out with the latest in technology whilst being consistent with the look and feel of your brand is what we do here at Event Marketing Solutions.” Says Head of Business Development at EMS Nic Whelan.

“A great example of this is our work with the 20th Century Fox Blu-ray European Experience, which saw nearly 8,000 movie fans experience the benefits of Blu-ray inside a truck. The tour created excitement around the product by giving visitors the opportunity to star in famous movie trailers and then share their big screen moment with friends and family through social media.”

The roadshow trucks from EMS can be completely tailored to the aesthetic of your brand. Relatively easy to set up and deploy, an interactive roadshow truck can be fitted with a variety of interactive technology and out on tour in time for the lucrative holiday period.

Visit www.eventms.com for more information and see why the likes of Samsung and 20th Century Fox have tasked EMS time and time again to handle their roadshow truck marketing campaign.

SalesFUSION Announces New Version Of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Marketing Accelerator With Embedded Demand Generation

SalesFUSION™, the maker of SalesFUSION 360, an integrated sales and marketing demand generation platform, today released Version 1.1 of its Microsoft CRM Marketing Accelerator. The new version fully embeds demand generation functionality into Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

SalesFUSION Announces New Version Of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Marketing Accelerator With Embedded Demand Generation

The suite of features offered in the SalesFUSION Dynamics Marketing Accelerator includes a wide range of functionality required by savvy B2B marketers. The application’s standard features include:

• Web visitor tracking and Web analytics
• Advanced B2B e-mail marketing
• The ability to build and display Web forms, landing pages, and surveys
• Full multi-channel marketing campaign management functionality

“I’m fully confident our SalesFUSION Dynamics Marketing Accelerator is the most feature-rich and comprehensive integration of any marketing automation solution provider in the market,” said Kevin Miller, EVP Marketing and Sales for SalesFUSION. “We’ve made it our goal to be the number-one demand generation solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and I believe Version 1.1 cements that position for us in the market.“

While earlier releases of the SalesFUSION Dynamics Marketing Accelerator were a huge success for both the firm and its clients, the Atlanta-based company relied on feedback from its user base and from Microsoft directly to identify several key areas where it could enhance the product.

According to Miller, the most significant change in Version 1.1 is the embedded tab navigation provided at the lead and contact records in both premise and online versions. This feature allows any sales user to access the complete lead lifecycle history up to the point at which they make initial sales contact. Sale users can also view Web visit history, e-mail response history, and access responses to all questions answered in forms or surveys. This depth of integration is unique in the Microsoft CRM community.

Used by U.S. and International companies of all sizes, the application requires no software and no services to implement and can be up and running in a matter of hours. SalesFUSION sells the solution in a direct and re-seller model. Existing Microsoft resellers can sign up as SalesFUSION resellers and earn a direct re-sale commission per month on the SaaS fees.

Letters To Santa Bring Joy To The Little Santa Letter Helpers

hildren everywhere send Letters to Santa during the holiday season. Santa regularly hears from children that live in Canada, the United States, Japan, Mexico, United Kingdom, and so many other places.

Because children come from different places and they are individuals with various wants and needs, each letter written to Santa is slightly different than the others he receives. Children that live in Hawaii often ask Santa for new swim gear and children that live in Canada are likely to ask for new sleds or snowboards. The point is, the letters written to Santa Claus are personalized to meet the needs and wants of the individual child writing the letter.

But even so, there are a few things that most children have in common as they write. First of all, most children want to insure that they are on Santa’s Nice list. This means that for some, they will be direct and ask; for others, they will simply explain away any naughty behavior. The second thing that most of these letters include is a list of toys and other gifts that the children would like to receive for Christmas. After all, they don’t want to be disappointed when Christmas morning arrives!

The third and final thing included in most letters written to Santa Claus is a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Santa Claus and his helpers for the wonderful Christmases of years past. Those helpers most often mentioned are the elves and the reindeer. The reindeer are well aware of the appreciation felt for their services of flying Santa around the world on Christmas Eve because children often leave treats out for them to eat on that special night.

But when it comes to the little elves that work hard all year to insure that every toy asked for is delivered on time, these letters are the only way they find out how much the children value what they do. That’s why Santa and Mrs. Claus share these letters with the elves. Letters that mention the elves are some of the most special ones that Santa receives all year long.

When Santa letters mention the elves and an appreciation for their work it makes them realize just how important their role really is. Christmas could not be Christmas without the help of the elves. Many times Santa will write a special note to children which reminds them of all the hard work done by the elves, the reindeer, all the other animals at the North Pole. Santa knows that without their help he could not make Christmas as magical as it is. A Letter from Santa is only made possible because Santa has the time to write them – and he would not have that time available without the help of the elves.

Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus work hard to let all their helpers know just how appreciated they really are. In fact, Santa has a special holiday set aside just for his helpers – it’s a day that no work is done and everyone receives a special gift. Santa decorates the walls of his home with all the letters that include a special ‘Thank You’ for the elves, the reindeer, and the other helpers. Mrs. Claus cooks a delicious meal for the entire group and they eat, sing and dance all day. This is the way the helpers celebrate a job well done!

The Christmas Tree And Santa Letters From Santa Himself

Each year, the mouse family that lives in the wall in the big house looks forward to the holiday season. This is a special time of year for them. They decorate their home from top to bottom – even the hole in the wall gets trimmed out beautifully. After all, that hole is the door to the family home and they want it to be lovely to look at as well as welcoming. The fact is, when the weather is cold outside it is not unusual for homeless mouse or two to wander into the big house, looking for warmth and comfort.

Marty, one of the younger mice children, especially loves it when they have guests in their home. You see Marty is full of adventure and he sneaks out into the big house at every chance. He cannot wait to get big enough to go out alone into the real world. He wants to know what’s out there. So when a mouse that has been on the outside pays a visit Marty is thrilled. This is another opportunity to learn about the world that exists outside of the big house.

The only thing that compares to Marty’s love of adventure is his love for Christmas and all that goes with it. Marty believes that Santa Claus is the nicest person in the world. That’s why the little white mouse is so careful when he writes his Santa letter. He wants Santa to like him and keep him on Santa’s Nice List. Every year Marty looks forward to receiving personalized letters from santa, and this year is no different.

Marty was proud as could be to contribute all sorts of decorations. On a recent visit to the big house he had met a little girl named Hailei Corin, mailing out a santa letter. She was very nice and she gave Marty lots of great stuff to take back to his mouse house. Marty found that she had provided glitter, colorful bits of thread and ribbon, and buttons. Those items were the perfect trimmings for the mouse family’s Christmas tree. He just knew that story would insure that he would receive letters from santa each and every year!

Lisa Jane’s Fairies On Personal Checks

Check Gallery is America’s earth-friendly check printer. Because it prides itself on this fact, Check Gallery offers a vast assortment of check designs and banking accessories that appeal to the tastes of nature lovers and “green” consumers. The new “Lisa Jane’s Fairies” design gives an imaginative feel to the forest that is sure to catch the admiration of many Check Gallery customers.

For nearly twenty-five years, Lisa Jane’s creative talent and distinctive styles have earned her almost every degree and honor in professional photography. However, the artist simply sees her work as the ability to “capture a moment in the life of one tiny soul and keep it forever in a photograph.” Check Gallery is very excited to offer the work of such an insightful and talented artist to its consumers.

In early March, 2009, Check Gallery released the new “Lisa Jane’s Fairies” product suite on its website, www.CheckGallery.com. In four rotating scenes, the personal checks portray toddler girls dressed as beautiful fairies surrounded by blooming flowers, butterflies, bunnies, and birds. The self-adhesive address labels show the same young girls, but only their angelic faces against pink backgrounds. For the checkbook cover and personal contact cards, only one small fairy is featured with a border and backdrop to match her dress and wings.

Check Gallery’s designs have always spoken to a naturalistic audience. In these fairy tale photographs, customers not only get to enjoy a beautiful landscape, but great photography and adorable little fairies as well. “Lisa Jane’s Fairies” is a wonderful new addition to the Check Gallery collection. Visit the site to view this or another design that you are sure to enjoy.
