Incept Hosts Marketing for Manufacturers on October 11

9/15/2017

This conference is focused on manufacturers who are interested in obtaining more quality leads using digital and inbound marketing tactics.  Why attend Marketing for Manufacturers?  Manufacturing companies face a unique set of challenges. While every company struggles with developing and implementing a successful marketing strategy, it can be especially hard for manufacturers. There are complicated products and processes, various markets and target personas, limited resources regarding time and money, and an outdated approach to marketing and sales in general. These can all be a recipe for obsolescence. However, for manufacturers that recognize these shortfalls and address them ahead of their competition, it can be a winning formula for increasing sales and revenue.

Price includes a continental breakfast, lunch buffet and snacks.  If you're interested in sticking around for a little networking, there will be an after-party, with drink tokens provided.  Reserve your spot using promo code GAC10 and save $10.  

UPS and FedEx Take Different Approaches to Peak Holiday Volume

9/11/2017

If you use UPS for your small package residential shipments, expect to see a jump in costs this holiday season. UPS announced that it will add a 27-cent charge on all Ground residential packages from November 19 through December 2 and then again from December 17 through December 23. Air packages and packages that qualify as large or over maximum limits will also see an increase. In a notable departure from UPS, FedEx will not follow suit. Instead, the only holiday surcharge they will be adding is for packages that are big or bulky enough to require special handling. PartnerShip®, the company that manages the Greater Akron Chamber Shipping Program, has taken a closer look at these changes. Click here to learn more about what shippers can expect this holiday season. Greater Akron Chamber members receive exclusive discounts on select FedEx® services through the Greater Akron Chamber Shipping Program.
