Stephanie Neil, Editor-in-Chief of OEM Magazine interviews Packaging and Processing Women's Leadership Network keynote speaker Dawn Hudson after she headlined the massively successful PPWLN breakfast at PACK EXPO International. Neil and Hudson detail her journey from the advertising industry to designing packages as a brand manager for Clairol to executive leadership roles at Pepsi and the NFL. Every step of the way, Hudson was the minority simply because she was a woman. She describes her earliest days when only 1 in 10 in advertising were female and navigating the male-dominated rooms she walked into in the NFL. She also provides insight into how to navigate microaggressions and the importance of authenticity in the workplace.Support the show

Allen Iov is the creator of www.the-brandman.com. Learn how to get your products into retail storesStarted several companies in the E-commerce space. SnapNsold was created to sell local people unwanted stuff on eBay.

We took products from large physical marketplaces inside and outside Moscow and made them available online. When my Visa in Russia was over, I came back to Seattle to start a wholesale company that sold products on amazon.I went to stores around my area, took their best-selling products, and added them on amazon. After 2 years, I moved into branding and creating my own products.This turned into a large company that sells its products all over the world.

This week's guest is Gene Portnoy. He is the talented creative behind Work and Company. @genepdesign @workandcompany We did things a little bit differently on this episode. It's a couple of mini conversations put into one. When we first spoke, the project we were talking about was literally at the printers. Like "photos sent of the press sheet that morning" at the printers. A few weeks later we were able to connect for a wrap-up conversation once he had received his samples and his client had some feedback. Awesome! The deep dive for this episode is all about the Full Bloom Cannabis packaging project. We talk about the details and story that went into the packaging, the design system created across multiple pieces, as well as the details behind getting things ready for production. Gene is a very talented designer and creative problem solver and makes for a great conversation. I know you'll dig this one.

Single-use food packaging is one of our thorniest problems. We need a safe and convenient way to get food home from the store, and we need easy ways to eat and drink on the go. How can we do that in a way that does not create so much waste? How can we do it in a way that does not put our bodies at risk from the harmful chemicals and additives used in so much of that packaging?In this episode we look at food packaging, with a focus on plastic, since there's so much of it, and it's the one with the most problems. We dig deep into plastic production and its connection to climate change. We talk to experts about how food packaging is problematic not just for the environment, but also for our health. Is there a solution? Is there a future that could exist that was not dominated — and polluted — by plastic?Follow @foodprintorg on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter . Stay Informed.

What is a brand identity definition? A brand identity is everything your customers associate with your products and company. A brand strategy is a plan that helps you decide how to communicate your brand. This includes things like what your logo will look like, what colors you'll use and how you're going to talk about yourself.

Get a $35 Off Your First Product Here : Get It Here ! What Does a Successful Brand Identity Look Like? If you want to build a successful brand identity, you need to start with the basics. Brand identity is the sum of all the elements that make up your brand. This includes not only what you say about your business and how it's doing, but also how others perceive these things by looking at your logo and website, reading some of your content on social media, or watching videos on YouTube. A successful brand identity is one where all these components work together as part of an overall strategy that helps customers understand what makes this company different from others in its market niche. It does this through: A well-defined promise or value proposition; Clear messaging (whether verbal or visual); Consistent branding across platforms; and Appropriate use of colours, fonts and imagery How to Create a Great Brand Identity for Your eCommerce Business A great brand identity is one that is recognizable and distinct. This means that it should be consistent across all channels, including your website, social media platforms, packaging and marketing campaigns. Being consistent with your brand identity will allow you to establish trust among consumers. That helps them feel comfortable making purchases from you. Your logo is the key component of this. Make sure it stands out from other logos. That way, customers can easily identify it as belonging to your company. Your logo should also be memorable so that customers don't forget about you after they've made their purchase. By using the same colors, fonts and images consistently throughout all aspects of your business operations (including packaging), you'll create an environment where customers are comfortable making purchases from you. They know exactly what they're getting into when they see one of these characteristics associated with any type of product purchased online. How to Get Consistent Brand Identity Creating a strong visual communication system helps make sure everyone at your company knows how each other's work fits into the bigger pictur...

Four primary ways to assemble and deliver your expertise—and the pros and cons of each.Shifting your mindset while shifting your service and product packaging, AKA how to move upstream confidently.How to conduct a listening tour of your ideal clients and buyers for focused direction on (re)packaging and price points.Integrating what your audience most wants from you with your genius zone.Quotables“You have this expertise that produces results, but you're used to delivering it in just one particular way… How can we come up with some different ways to assemble it and deliver it?”—JS“There's the fear factor: If you're used to getting $50,000 to build something and now you'll get $5,000 to outline it, you're thinking ‘where am I gonna get the other 45,000?'”—RM“If you're an order taker and you disagree with the orders, it's like the world telling you to move upstream.”—JS“Think assessments which allow you to shift your revenue and to productize your knowledge into something that's easier to sell.”—RM“It's not that difficult to add some kind of upfront design or architecture phase to whatever the thing is that you normally build.”—JS“I like listening tours where you're going to people who are your ideal clients, and you're asking them about the biggest problems they're trying to solve—and you find out more about that, so you get a sense of magnitude.”—RM“I like to ask historically, have you tried to solve this in the past? How much money or sleep have you lost because of this problem? Things like that, because they can answer that. Like they are the expert on those questions.”—JS“Instead of just looking to what other people are doing, we have to really understand what our audience wants from us.”—RM

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Kathleen McEntee discuss:Kathleen's journey from strategy to full service marketing.Branding versus marketing. Distinguishing yourself from your competitors. Talking about what you do and not assuming people know what you do and what your brand is. Key Takeaways:When you are living in the weeds, you are not looking at the bigger picture and looking at how your customer is seeing you. The marketing pushes the branding out to the target audience. Even if you do the same thing as your competition, if nobody is talking about it, and it is something that people care about, you can stand out by talking about it. Ask recent clients what they thought about your business, how you responded, and if and why they would refer you to others. That will tell you what you need to do to sharpen your brand. "Whatever you're really best at, and whatever you have a passion for, is what you use to distinguish yourself within whatever your area of specialty." — Kathleen McEntee Episode References: ProVisors: https://www.provisors.com/Strategic Coach: https://www.strategiccoach.com/ Connect with Kathleen McEntee: Website: https://www.kmcenteeassoc.com/Email: firstname.lastname@example.org YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2FbD6Q0IXYGMlLTBCYjKlALinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kmmcentee/Twitter: https://twitter.com/kathleenmcenteeFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/KMcEnteeAssoc Thank you to our Sponsors!Legalese Marketing: https://legaleasemarketing.com/Moneypenny: https://www.moneypenny.com/us/Practice Panther: https://www.practicepanther.com/ Connect with Steve Fretzin:LinkedIn: Steve FretzinTwitter: @stevefretzinFacebook: Fretzin, Inc.Website: Fretzin.comEmail: Steve@Fretzin.comBook: The Ambitious Attorney: Your Guide to Doubling or Even Tripling Your Book of Business and more!YouTube: Steve FretzinCall Steve directly at 847-602-6911 Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

Hey listeners! Welcome back, especially to those of you with service-based businesses. In this podcast I share strategies for packaging and pricing your offers. Ugh. Did your stomach drop? Pricing can be a vulnerable topic, and I've shared my discomfort about money conversations in the past. I'm happy to be much more confident now, and excited to share my answers to this common question. Key Takeaways This topic is taken from my Business Bootcamp module. Find out more about Business Bootcamp at MollyKnuthMedia.com/shop I have a distinct memory of deciding what to charge for what I could do with who needs it. I felt raw, nervous, and too big for my britches. My pricing was based on an hourly rate for what I expected my package to entail. My britches weren't sustainable! After awhile it was necessary to update my pricing to reflect my expertise and efficiency. Consider opportunity cost when pricing. Time you are spending with a client is time you're NOT doing anything else. Same for the client. Time they are getting by hiring you is time they can be doing anything else that could make them more money. Ask yourself how much time you are saving the client. What do they do to earn the money to pay you? What do others in your industry charge? Avoid the comparison game, but it is a nice general guideline. Resist the urge to be driven by fear, scarcity, and powerlessness. Build an offer suite with your middle-of-the-road flagship offer, at least one upgrade, and at least one more affordable option. You're the boss! You get to decide! There are not rules. You make the rules. Think about quality, not quantity of offers. Like… Louis Vuitton, not Dollar Tree. Your pricing should be as unique as you are! P.S. My episode with Sheila Hansen on Money Mindset is so valuable if this is a topic you struggle with!

Steve Larsen was my guest today at the PackSize booth at the show. They also announced a super fantastic integration with Boot Barn today. Here's the video and press releasehttps://www.packsize.com/customer-spotlight/bootbarn/BOOT BARN, INDUSTRIAL PROCUREMENT SERVICES (INDPRO), AND PACKSIZE COLLABORATE TO COMBAT LABOR SHORTAGES WITH CUSTOM AUTOMATION SOLUTIONSPacksize technology redefines packaging to support sustainability initiativesand meet customer demands SALT LAKE CITY, October 25, 2022 – Packsize today announced it is partnering with Boot Barn (NYSE: BOOT) to transform the retailer's warehouses through custom automation solutions addressing the impact of labor shortages, while bolstering the company's sustainability initiatives. Boot Barn sought out INDPRO and Packsize to transform its boot storage system, save and reallocate labor, and improve throughput.“The partnership we have with Packsize and INDPRO is already having a significant impact on our throughput and our ability to provide a right-size box for every customer order that leaves our Wichita distribution center,” said Joey Kinnevan, Director of Fulfillment at Boot Barn. “As this year's holiday season approaches, we're more confident than ever in our ability to meet and exceed our customers' expectations to make this a successful quarter, and we're excited about the future possibilities of this partnership.”Utilizing multiple packaging platforms from Packsize, Boot Barn now has the capacity to move 1,000 packages every hour from its Wichita distribution center.* The unique all-in-one X7 solution from Packsize handles most of the e-commerce orders – 75% through its highly automated inline fulfillment system that creates right-sized boxes for every order.* The Packsize X4 and IQ Fusion solutions handle the remaining orders, working together to offer flexible and cost-efficient options, especially during peak season.These solutions support Boot Barn's sustainability commitment by reducing waste and using significantly less corrugated than standard or off-the-shelf boxes. Additionally, leveraging Packsize's products helps increase freight efficiency by maximizing cubic volume on transportation vehicles and eliminating the need for wasteful void fill, thereby lowering Boot Barn's carbon footprint. In a recent study conducted by Packsize, such sustainability efforts were shown to increase end-consumer satisfaction: nearly 1 in 4 say they would either switch to purchasing from more environmentally responsible companies or reduce their online shopping due to environmental concerns.“Collaborating with Boot Barn and INDPRO to create a data-driven, custom automation and sustainable solution has been incredibly rewarding for our partnership,” said Rod Gallaway, CEO of Packsize. “Utilizing best-in-class solutions from Packsize, Boot Barn and INDPRO are redefining the possibilities of packaging to improve the consumer's experience, warehouse throughput and sustainability efforts.”“Looking at the specifics of Boot Barn's needs, Packsize was our natural choice as an automation partner on this project,” said Mark Juelich, President of INDPRO. “After the recent success in Wichita, we are excited to work with Packsize again in the very near future.”Boot Barn's use of the Packsize system creates right-sized boxes that perfectly fit each order to ship more than 4,000 shipments to customers daily. At Boot Barn's Wichita Distribution Center, which spans 140,000 square feet, employees can now simply scan and load SKUs into the system to ship products out in the right-sized boxes instead of packaging by hand, reducing the likelihood of damage and increasing packaging efficiency even for the most complex orders.About Packsize® Packsize® transforms how businesses and their customers experience packaging – from packing to unboxing. Since introducing Right-sized Packaging on Demand® in 2002, Packsize has become a recognized supply chain and sustainable packaging industry leader in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific.

Today's guests are Dave Finocchio and Anna Robertson, co-founders of The Cool Down.Since the beginning, media businesses have been in the game of building audience segments and mobilizing those audiences to do something. Most American media has learned how to mobilize audiences on various platforms to click or view ads. To buy stuff. But in the wake of the climate crisis, there are certainly better uses of our time online and purchasing power. As you'll see in this episode, some media companies are trying to get people to become local leaders in their communities or make climate conscious purchases. The Cool Down aims to do this and become America's mainstream climate brand. Dave and Anna have extensive digital media credentials that are as strong as they come, and (bonus!) they met via the MCJ member community. In this conversation, Cody learns more about Dave and Anna's backgrounds as media leaders, how and why they decided to apply their skills to climate, the gaps in climate communication today, what audiences they are targeting, and how they plan to build a business or otherwise monetize The Cool Down. Since launching earlier this year, Anna and Dave are just at the beginning of figuring out who these climate-motivated audiences are and how they can be mobilized, but they made one thing abundantly clear: their goal is to reach mainstream audiences to have an even bigger impact in the climate fight.In this episode, we cover: [3:03] Anna's background at ABC News and Yahoo [6:26] Dave's media experience and transition to climate [12:19] Gap in media and climate communications [16:15] The Cool Down's storytelling strategy [19:18] Popular climate topics they're experimenting with[22:15] Value-based actions that are good for people and the planet [29:45] Packaging tech innovation into engaging, digestible content [35:19] Taking local actions that benefit communities [38:27] Anna and Dave's business model and how they're starting to test it [48:16] What's next for The Cool Down Get connected: Cody's TwitterThe Cool Down TikTok / Instagram / WebsiteMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on September 7, 2022.
