As with almost any artistic profession, the larger the amount of people who know of a photographer, the more chances of him or her being successful. Of course, there are numerous ways for photographers to promote themselves: social media marketing, paid advertisements, word-of-mouth, pro-bono/volunteer work, just to name a few.
However, when it comes to growing your business – or the perceived worth of it, there are no better means than referrals from your satisfied clients! Running a business for ‘artistic products’ ourselves, we can attest to this from our first-hand experience.
Now it seems that photographers have found a way to use our USB Cards as a way to get their work to promote itself, thereby increasing the number of referrals they get!
Like the name suggests, USB brochures are paper flyers which contain a USB drive. This USB drive can be detached from the flyer and connected to any computer to access the content preloaded on it. It can also be programmed to launch a website. This can be a YouTube video, an online form, a Dropbox link or anything else. Continue reading
A quote is very important in the decision making process for a business. When it comes to promotional USB Cards there are a few things customers should look out for. In the custom branded USB market quotes are especially important. This is mainly because of price fluctuations in the USB Chip market. Continue reading
Traditional photography of actual products is becoming less common in this time and age. Instead, computer generated imagery is replacing such illustrations in all walks of life. To give you an example, about a decade ago, 20% of all advertisements of cars were digitally rendered and 80% were produced through traditional photography. Today this number has flipped. The same can be said for most industries which rely on illustrations to sell products. The custom-branded USB industry is no exception. Continue reading
Kickstarter, Indiegogo and other crowdfunding platforms have been revolutionary for indie video game developers.

These rewards vary from in-game credits to being included in the game as a character. Continue reading
The age of digital printing has revolutionized the worlds of marketing, and advertising. Today a variety of options have become available that were unimaginable in the past. Among these options is the VARIABLE PRINTING feature we have available for our clients. This feature enables our clients to personalize each and every USB drive for their audience with their name, and other specific information. Variable printing can also be used to print sequential codes, random numbers, unique identifiers, QR codes and barcodes on our USB drives. The advantage of our state of the art variable data printing is that it allows each USB drive to be exclusively designed and printed for a single person. If executed properly, a campaign which utilizes such individualized can improve the response rates. Our variable printing option is being used by our clients in the following ways: Continue reading
Accounting as a profession is symbolized as the backbone of the business world. As the face of the business world continues to adapt to reflect the ever changing geo-political and economic landscape, so too do the accounting firms that provide critical services to the business engines.
For quite some time now, the use of paper has been steadily declining for a number of reasons. The most prominent of these – at least in the past – have been the rise of computer technology and the cloud, as well as a need to cut down on costs. More recently, however, there is another reason to cut down on the use of paper that is becoming just as prominent – going green.
Keeping that trend in mind, and consumers’ and businesses’ increased willingness to work with companies that are seen as environmentally sustainable, accounting firms across the world have sprung into action. They raise their voices more frequently to showcase the steps they take towards being more sustainable – economically, environmentally, and socially.
Here at Flarian, we have come up with yet another cost-effective way for accounting firms to boost their sustainability performance. Our method is cost-effective to use and implement, and very easy to use. Best of all, it is just as useful for accounting firms, as it is for their clients. Continue reading
If you’re convinced our USB Brochures are a great product for your brand but don’t know how to get started with your own order, this post is for you.
If you do not yet know what USB Brochures are, I highly recommend checking out this previous blog post, and our webpage for USB Brochures.
So you realize that a print brochure with a promotional USB embedded in it, preloaded with your content, is a great tool for your branding/marketing/promotional efforts. What comes next?
Buying custom branded USB Drives for the first time can be a difficult decision. There are a lot of factors that can cause uncertainty. Some of the biggest concerns clients have raised include:
- How will the drives operate once plugged in?
- Will complex data such as custom applications be corrupted?
- Will the print look good and match the branding?
- Will the custom branded USB Drive work for them?
At the end of the day all these questions really boil down to one simple question. How can you trust an online company? Here at Flarian we welcome this very justified skepticism. Not only is this level of scrutiny healthy when purchasing anything online but it also gives as a chance to do some humble bragging. Continue reading
