Have you ever ran Google ads in the past? How about Facebook Ads? I've been running Google Ads for the past year for Ultimate Boat Wraps and we have been pretty happy with the ROI (return on investment), good results with a small investment.
There are several tools to help you manage your social media. We are all so busy that sometimes managing your social media can be overwhelming and I would share with you two tools that will help you make this task a little easier. Two of my favorite tools for social media content management are Nutshell Mail and HootSuite. To be quite honest the reason those are two of my favorites is because they have FREE versions and they help make managing my social media much easier. In this article I am going to give you an overview of these tools and how you can use them to manage your social media in 30 minutes a day or 30 minutes a week.
You see it everywhere... Find us on Facebook! Why? Because Facebook can work for your business. We've talked to several small businesses that have been successful using Facebook and it has really helped them save on their advertising budget and best of all increase their sales. One of the best parts about Facebook is that your Facebook page can be found via internet search. So for companies that don't have a website yet, this is a way they can have an online presence. Here are some tips for using Facebook for your business effectively.

We are very excited to introduce to you our online wrap design studio where you can design your very own Truck, Trailer, Boat, Golf Cart, Race Car or Car Wrap!wrapdesignstudio.com/crowriversigns
We just got a new to us boat back in July. The body of the boat wasn't too sharp looking so we were able to pick up the boat for the right price, it wasn't selling as is. The graphics were faded and peeling off, there was a pretty big scratch on the side. Nothing a little elbow grease and wrap can't fix. This time we chose a design that matched our truck wrap. Our design was one of 3 design concepts we put together for a customer. We had our eye on it from the point we submitted it to our customer and decided that if the customer didn't choose that one it would be the next wrap for us. Lucky us he choose a different design. We get lots of oohs and ahhs when we pull our boat down the road, it does it's job of turning heads and leaving a lasting impression.
For more information on our boat wraps check out our new website: www.ultimateboatwraps.com
MNBoatWraps.com, a division of Crow River Signs, is expanding nationally. Along with our national expansion we are changing our boat wrap division's name to UltimateBoatWraps.com
. We currently have installers and sales representatives located in Florida and Arizona.
With Christmas right around the corner it is time to start thinking what we are going to do to thank our customers for their valued business. Right after Christmas start the tradeshows. RIGHT NOW is a good time to start budgeting and brainstorming if you haven't already what you are going to do for your customers to remind them how much you appreciate their business or who to call the next time they need your service.
Each week we will feature a promotional or gift idea. We will spotlight a traditional item, a new or unique item and a popular item in each category.
When a customer really likes something you give them, it is a great advertising tool, because they use it all the time and they see you name every time they pick it up. We work with several different suppliers to find you the products your looking for at the best price.
Crow River Signs has the capability to create unique custom designs that you can preview before you have your embroidery or screen printing done. All of our screen printing is done in house, which saves you money, allows us to control the quality and turnaround.

Do you have the original format of your logo? If you don't, I would suggest contacting the person that designed it for you to find out how you can get it. By law unless you have paid for logo design and have had the rights signed over to you, the company that designed your logo owns the rights.
MNBoatWraps offers custom registration numbers. Every year we work with the dealers that offer our products to come up with the designs that match the stock graphics for the new boats. We also offer custom design to match any boat. Call us for more information if you would like to order or if you are a dealer and would like to offer our registration numbers.
RAC Gear is our apparel line and to us it is more than a name. I personally enjoy a good story behind a name. When we started to do apparel and screen printing, we wanted to brand it with a name.
