Insights from DX3

If you know of Score Promotions, you are aware that we are always looking ways to innovate our business and adapt with the newest trends our industry has to offer. As a marketing company that helps other companies market their business (wow, what a paradigm!), we must keep as fluid as possible to keep growing our own marketing techniques. DX3 Canada is a show that attracts the highest level marketing executives across our country, and strives to push boundaries in terms of both digital and retail marketing.

The highlight of the show for us was listening to Country Manager from Amazon, Tamir Bar-Haim speak on the topic “Achieving Customer-Centric Growth”.  Below is a recap of the different categories he spoke on. At Score, we pride ourselves in the most quality customer service and treating our clients with integrity and respect. As a result, his words on Customer-Centric Growth within companies spoke to us deeply; we are always willing to improve and adapt in the ways our clients need.

Creating Customer Obsession


You must get to know your clients through analyzing trends and buying behavior. The easiest way to do so is through e-commerce, and qualifying through concrete data and metrics. When consumers are making a purchase, they consider the cycle of awareness, consideration, purchase, advocacy, and loyalty. These five pillars are what influence a customer’s decision to purchase. Again, digital data provided by e-commerce analytics can show insight on each dollar spent by a client.

It is important to note that the customer journey is no longer linear. Marketing campaigns drive sales and lock in customer loyalty on a daily basis. Because of this, it is pivotal to create a strong branded campaign in order to drive customer decisions and make audiences aware of your product.

It is imperative that you delight your customers with an experience. As a company, you should always be striving to inform, engage, and inspire your customers.



It should always be your goal to win your clients with convenience. When dealing with future prospects or current clients, always ask yourself how many hoops the customer must jump through to achieve an end result. From there, work backwards to ensure you are making tasks as easy as you can for clients, from placing an order straight through to delivery. In today’s digital age, time spent online and in app for consumers equates to speed and simplicity, which in turn opens up their days to do other things, and in the end they value the source of efficiency.

Are you Customer Obsessed?

When making decisions in your business, ensure all initiatives have a clear and tangible effect on your customers.  A successful business will understand the core needs of the consumer. If you measure your success against a competitor, you may achieve a certain degree of success. When you measure your success against customer satisfaction, you are continually working to improve and grow in order to gain successes. Because the customer is always right, you are forced to continually push yourself to adapt. That push and drive is what will make you successful over and over again.

Score at HRPA 2018

On Wednesday January 31st to Friday February 2nd Score Promotions attended the Annual HRPA Conference and Trade Show. The show was held at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre and hosted over 4,500 HR Professionals from around Canada. Score was proud to sponsor Canada’s largest human resources conference by providing backpacks and lanyards to all attendees. Everyone was also provided with a self-promotional branded Salt Away bottle, which was a huge hit this winter season.

So how do Promotional Products and Human Resources work in tandem? We categorized our booth with 8 different pillars that make for perfect opportunities to use promotional items in your workplace!

1. Team Building
Custom apparel creates a cohesive brand and team environment! Make your employees feel more than just workers –  they are a part of a team that works together to get the job done.
2. Winter & Summer Events
We live in a country where the weather is constantly changing! As a result, appropriate promotional materials are constantly changing as well. Bundle up in the winter with warm gloves, coffee mugs, etc., and cool down in the summer with water bottles, sunglasses, frisbees, and more!
3. Workshops & Seminars
Providing attendees with memorable materials from your workshop or seminar will make the content rememberable and valued. Customize lanyards by printing the name of each attendee to add a personalized touch or provide them with a patterned notebook they will want to keep forever.
4. Recruiting
Ensuring your company, organization or brand stands out against the others is a pivotal part of the recruitment industry! Give away useful promo items that your audience will value and continue to use. For example, hand out pop sockets so your brand stays on the consumer’s phone and consequently by their side at all times.
5. Onboarding
Creating a sense of passion for your workplace is a great way to onboard new employees and get them acquainted with your company’s culture. Providing custom notebooks, post-its, and other office materials is a great way to make a new addition to your team feel right at home.
6. Company Pride & Recognition
Getting employees excited about their workplace is the best way to ensure they are kept happy and retained. Whether it’s providing your team with custom holiday gifts or rewarding a hardworking individual with a personalized milestone marker, boosting moral is vital to maintaining motivation. Supporting your team at tournaments, games, races, etc. can also be a great way to increase engagement. Hand out noisemakers like cowbells or bam-bams to get your crowd going!
7. Safety
Providing employees with branded tools or health products that fall in line with your company’s Health & Safety policy is a great way to ensure all workers follow the rules and are safe while on the job.
8. Eco-friendly
Giving away economically friendly and sustainable products is a great way to decrease your organizations carbon footprint and show workers you don’t just care about them – you care about the planet as well!

HRPA 2018 was a great opportunity to showcase the endless possibilities for custom branding within a workplace, no matter how diverse an organization’s culture or demographic. One thing we know for sure is that a cohesive brand identity is a great way to maintain happy and positive employees, which is why HR Professionals look no further than Score Promotions to provide solutions for all their needs.

5 Tips for Writing a Killer Press Release


A press release is an essential element of every public relations strategy. They are used to inform its viewer about what’s new in the organization, such as; product launches, events, partnerships or any other news that needs to be shared with the world. Although the concept is pretty simple, getting it right certainly is not.

Here are our top 5 recommendations for writing a killer press release:


How Taylor Swift Proved Customer Loyalty is King


With the ever-decreasing consumer trust in the market, it is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive for new brands to build & maintain customer loyalty, especially, within the millennial generation (those born in 1980-2000). Yet, many prominent brands keep getting it wrong, time and time again.

One great example of a failed customer experience, that was salvaged by unconditional loyalty; ITunes had accidentally released a song by Taylor called “Track 3” which consisted of 8 seconds of static noise for $1.29, which was download by her millions of devoted fans without even listening to it and the song climbed the ladder to become the number one song on ITunes in October 2014. More importantly, Taylor Swift received little-to-no criticism for this accident.
