Marketing is a strategy, it’s the decisions that are made around what has been known since the 60’s as the Four P’s. 
 
ProductPricePromotion and Place, in 1981 three new elements were added, Physical Environment, People and Process, however most marketing strategies in SME’s still focus on the original Four P’s. 
 
The purpose of a marketing strategy is to set the company on a specific course in marketing which is aligned with the overall objectives of the business. 
 
For most businesses strategic decisions concerning the company’s product range, pricing strategy and sales strategy are fixed for the medium term. However strategic decisions around a promotional strategy are influenced by the success or failure of the chosen strategy on an ongoing basis.

This is a name we are unlikely to forget for some time, but how come a storm is named after a person and who was Ophelia? 
 
WHY? 
In October 2013, seventeen people died throughout Europe following a storm on St Jude’s day. 
After this the Irish and UK Met offices decided to introduce a storm naming system to give a single authoritative name to storms, the first storm was called Abigail in November 2015. 
Storms that trigger a status Orange or Red weather warning will be named. 
The names were chosen by the public in Ireland and the UK and they are male and female names in alphabetical order. 
At the beginning of each year the first storm has a female name, the second a male name and so on. 
Names beginning with Q,U,X,Y and Z are not used. 
As this storm originated in the Atlantic it was named by the National Hurricane Center in America as Ophelia, the first name for a storm in Ireland 2017/2018 will be Aileen. 
 
WHO? 
Ophelia is a character in Hamlet by William Shakespeare, she is a young noblewoman from Denmark, the daughter of Polonius, and the potential wife of Prince Hamlet. 
 
Among our services are indoor and outdoor signage, designed and fitted on Corrieboard, Foamex, Dibond and PVC, if you suffered any damage to your signage during storm Ophelia contact us www.printcom.ie/services/signage/ 
Once upon a time a Service Engineer used his phone as a diary and to generate Invoices for completed jobs. 
• Every day he used the diary on the phone to record upcoming appointments, to record the hours worked and for what clients. 
 
• One day his phone was stolen 
 
• Because of that he missed appointments and lost track of the unbilled hours. 
 
• Because of that he lost clients and money 
 
• Until finally be decided to get a A5 diary and use it a s a back up

In 2017 it was estimated that every second 2,500,000 emails were sent, that equates to approximately 206 billion per year. 

Business emails sent are 120,000,000 per day. 10% of emails bounce and approximately 20% are opened, this means that 70% of all emails are never read. 

 
If you are using email marketing to develop business and grow sales you may be disappointed with the result, the big benefit of emails is that they are free. 
If you decide to write to your prospects you can be sure of one thing, all letters are opened. 
Letters are perceived to be more personal but there is a cost and it obviously takes longer to reach the customer but guaranteed to be opened and read.Click on this text to edit it.
