From the August edition of our bi-monthly newsletter, The Bureau
Ron Royall, President
At the start of the third quarter, I’m still uncertain about our current economic climate. Recently I saw a monthly economic index from the NFIB that showed a drop in June indicating confidence among job creators isn’t there. On the other hand, I just read an article about an analysis conducted by Bloomberg BNA that said the US economic recovery is expected to accelerate beginning in the 2nd half of 2013.
The one thing I am certain about is our commitment to you, our clients, vendors and partners. As we continue to weather this economic storm, we have seen a tremendous amount of activity and change and are honored to work for, and with, so many great companies and people.
Our extended issue of our newsletter covers a very exciting 2nd quarter for us. As one of the articles says; BEB has been “On A Roll” winning six awards from local, regional and national organizations, and for a wide variety of items such as our interactive holiday cards, twitter campaigns and our newsletter, The Bureau!
We’ve also launched our new website, bebtexas.com, and cordially invite you to take a tour. It’s a living site that is in a constant state of renewal. In addition to the traditional details of our service offerings, we share our rich and unique 64-year history while offering the latest postal and marketing news through our blog. There are links to our Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook pages, and we’ve added a career page too! Most important, we are connected to our clients through this interactive site and appreciate all of the feedback, suggestions and kudos received so far!
Other articles enclosed a summation of stats from a multi-channel marketing campaign, highlights from a meeting with the US Postmaster General Pat Donahoe, and outline of postal promotions for the remaining year and more photos showing our personal side on “The Back Wall”.
The balance of the year holds more excitement and education too. We’ll be at several industry trade shows, we have several client trips slated on the calendar and lots of industry events (including the big PICG Oktoberfest) and soon we’ll be working on our 2014 Calendar.
No matter how bumpy the economic climate is for our businesses, BEB will continue to search for new ways to better serve your needs. Thank you for your continued support and thank you for your business.
