Please join us on the 19th of September when the Dot Fulfillment Services in conjunction with the OC Marketing & Advertising Association will host a lunch & learn seminar at our Santa Ana headquarters.
Meeting Topic: Branding “The Experience”

 Connecting with Your Customers to Stay Top of Mind

In today’s economy the competition is harder than ever before. The question is not only how you stand out from the crowd to attract people to select your business - but to then have them return for more.

The restaurant industry is one of the most competitive markets around because they all sell the same thing FOOD. But… What they really are selling is the “complete customer experience”

By examining the restaurant model we will use examples that illustrate how to attract customers and impress guests in order to return and tell others

This seminar will focus 4 main topics


·         Define your brands personality - What does your brand say about you?

·         Examine your brand touch points and collateral to polish and perfect them.


·         Define your ideal customers – what do they want/need from you.

·         Who is in your area already and how can you attract them?


·         What can you do to set yourself apart from the competition.

·         Can you create a more unique memorable experience?


·         Managing your brand message in-house, externally and online.

·         Setting systems in place to manage not only the brand but to help sell the “complete experience”.
