  • PIAA teams up with ADMA for print marketing course

    The Printing Industries Association of Australia (Printing Industries) is launching a pilot program in NSW provide providing printing companies with marketing services skills they can use for generating new income streams.

    The modular marketing course builds on an introductory program in 2012, which provided a basic marketing overview across a wide range of marketing services.

    Joe Kowalewski (pictured), Printing Industries national director, Communications and Marketing, said the initial program helped to identify the areas where detailed knowledge and skills were needed and had commercial viability. 

    “Working with the Association for Data-driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA) [formerly the Australian Direct Marketing Association] we have created four modules to be run over two days that will provide the critical hands-on skills and understanding for printing company staff to deliver revenue generating marketing services,” he said. “The modules cover cut-through marketing focusing on marketing basics, quality, content and delivery; multi-channel marketing, the effectiveness of each channel and when to use them for the best results; using data in marketing, ensuring its accuracy and responsibilities under privacy laws and how and where to use social media.”

    The modules can be taken individually or as a complete package over two days.

    Garry Knespal, GASA general manager, said that PacPrint13 demonstrated the changing face of the printing industry and the need for companies to invest in new services to capitalise on the changing business needs of their clients.

    “Business communication options are expanding and will continue to evolve. That’s why it’s so important for printing companies in particular to be able to provide new options as part of their communication product and service mix that their clients are using and needing assistance with,” he said.
