1937 Cincinnati Ohio River Flood Anniversary

Cincinnati Enquirer remembers the 1937 Flood.

“After unprecedented precipitation, the Ohio River in Cincinnati rose to its all-time high on Jan. 26, 1937. It was a natural disaster than spanned the entire length of the 981-mile-long river. Michael Nyerges.” Read more.

One of the founders of our agency, Edmund Strauchen, did the above illustration for the Enquirer that day.

Industrial Marketing for Engineering, Architecture and Construction

Industrial marketing is different for machine tools and chemical processing equipment, but it’s even stranger for engineering, architectural or construction services.

I learned of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) back in 2005 when I asked Pete Strange, the president of Messer Construction, how I could get clients in building materials, construction and architecture. He said that SMPS was the best way to learn. I joined and served several years on the board of the local Cincinnati Chapter. The Certified Professional Services Marketer is the most valuable thing I have received from SMPS. It’s a body of marketing knowledge and methods that is nothing like selling lipstick or rebar for that matter. Here’s link to SMPS.org and a study guide to the certification.

B2B Sales Conversion Rates – Benchmark Research Finds Surprises

Implisit analyzed the pipelines of hundreds of companies to discover the channels that deliver the highest conversion rate. Are you focusing on the right channels?

Nov 20, 2014 By in AnalyticsCloudFeaturedSales

B2B Sales Conversion Rates’ processes are complex, with myriad stakeholders and prolonged decision cycles. That’s why it’s hard to know from the top of your head what’s working and what’s not. Fortunately, we have Salesforce, where we can track lead sources all the way to closing the deal.

At Implisit, we analyzed anonymous aggregated lead data from hundreds of companies to see what works and what doesn’t. Results are surprising: some channels are better at creating opportunities, but those opportunities are less likely to close; in other channels, it’s harder to create opportunities, but these opportunities are more likely to close.

Plan for an Industrial Content Driven Marketing campaign

Consumer media is getting very fractured, but industrial content driven marketing is still led by a few quality publishing houses.

Sure you can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on full page ads every month in your industrial trade publications. But you wouldn’t be taking advantage of the invitation to supply educational and application articles to the publication as well. Industrial marketing is a partnership between you and the industrial publishing houses. And that includes trade shows as well. The best publishing companies also have the best shows.

U.S. Chemical Process Industries: Catching the Capital Spending Wave

From Chemical Engineering Magazine, Webinar June 14, 2 p.m. EDT, $95

Process_Equipment_Marketing.pngThis webinar examines the current status of the U.S. chemical industry as well as its outlook over the next several years. We will start with examination of the economic environment, with further emphasis on housing, light vehicles and other important end-use markets. We will then focus on: 1) basic chemicals and synthetic materials; and 2) specialty chemicals.

Our premise is that fortunes of the former segment represent a supply driven gain in output, the result of the shale gas revolution and the renewed competitiveness of the U.S. industry. Changing energy dynamics are playing a role and we will analyze the effects of low oil prices are having on competitiveness, uncertainty and the wave of announced investments. Our premise is that fortunes of the latter segment represent a demand driven gain in output, the result of the manufacturing renaissance currently underway.

We will analyze the effects of the current soft patch in manufacturing and how it affects the various specialty chemical segments. Of particular interest to those in process engineering and chemical company capital programs we will assess the unprecedented wave of capital spending (and capacity expansion) by segment, by asset, and by geography.

All Those Little Things You Do, (Metalworking Equipment Marketing Workflows)

(Thanks to Bob for another insightful post. Just last night I did a process equipment marketing review of Chemical Processing’s ads for Readex and reviewed the Emerson ad for “Project Certainty.” Eye catching ad but I can’t believe their claims. What could possibly “look differently” at my rock crushing plant project and replace the 1000 years of experience going into its design. Not to say modern analysis capabilities maybe could help but they are going to have to tell me a little bit more than, “innovate.” Plotting the human mind work flow was impossible just a few years ago. Mainly because what ever idea we came up with was proved wrong by science. Now the science is catching up. Look out, someone’s going to find out that we only work half the time!)
