10 Things I liked from the Apple WWDE

The Apple WWDE had some cool new updates and features. Just in case you don’t have time to read a long transcription or don’t have time to watch the replay, here are my top 10 game changers from Apple (in my opinion).

1) Overall a thinner MacBook Pro. I was hoping for a lower price point below $2199

2) iCloud acting more like Dropbox.

3) Use my laptop with Apple TV, might be time to spring for one.

4) Seri integration with car makers. This will be cool, but I don’t plan on buying a new car anytime soon.

5) Facebook integration is IOS6

6) Do not ditrub mode for iPhone

7) FaceTime over cellular, very cool.

8) New Maps.. no more Google, turn by turn direction,  and will reroute around traffic

9) Shared Photo Stream

10) Don’t have to wait long, release for IOS6 this fall.

How to have Eco-friendly Marketing Initiatives

When the city of Arlington, TX decided to give away free trees to promote tree planting in their community at the city’s annual Ecofest celebration, they reached out to Proforma to create a logoed bag that would keep the trees protected before and during the event. A challenge arose, however, when the city realized that keeping trees in disposable bags was not aligned with their sustainable image.

Proforma suggested a vivid, recyclable and reusable plastic cup to contain the small trees. The cup was customized with educational information, as well as instructions on how to take care of the tree.

The staff and attendees of the event loved the tree containers and were excited to use the cups later on as a reminder of the importance of sustainability in everyday life. Proforma continues to provide the customer with other eco-friendly items, including sustainable t-shirts and tumblers.

Imgres

Have you ever thought about the promotional opportunities for napkins, probably not. Most marketing managers never consider the high impression impact napkins, YES napkins can provide. Here are a few ideas…

Schools: Print the drama clubs cast list or the sporting schedule on napkins and had out to local restaurants.

Corporations: Instead of providing note paper create that best idea on a cooperate napkin in the next brainstorming meeting.

Religious Groups: Provide a list of church activities or mass schedules and had out to local coffee houses and other establishments.

Healthcare: Print healthcare statistics on the inside of the napkins

Restaurants & Bars: Print a mini menu for desert, special drinks, best sellers, or future events on the outside of the napkin.

For just pennies a item you can create distinctive impressions. I know you can think of more and creative fun ways to use napkins for your next marketing campaign.
