Like so many businesses, Vya has been assessing the longer-term impacts of COVID-19 – for our own business and for our clients. While we can’t fully predict what will happen next, we do believe that in a post-COVID economy, you can’t just go back to being the company you were before 2020.

A quarter century – that sure sounds like a long time. Think back 25 years… what do you remember about 1993? Bill Clinton was sworn in as the 42nd president of the United States. Top films were Jurassic Park, Mrs. Doubtfire, Groundhog Day, Sleepless in Seattle and Schindler’s List. The cost of a first-class stamp was $0.29.

This time of year, excess can be all around us. Too often, the holidays quickly become overwhelming and a source of stress instead of something to enjoy. To me, it’s all about getting back to the basics.
It’s about making things easier by removing items off my to-do lists, where appropriate, and staying focused on what really matters.
Today’s business landscape is constantly changing. Customers are in the driver seat, demanding new products and services, and expecting businesses to always be available. All the while, technology lets us deliver more faster than ever before, while connecting with more and more consumers.
It’s a competitive environment. And it’s one where companies must be agile in order to meet new demands, adapt to new technology and stand out in the marketplace.

Today is an exciting, and emotional, day for me. Today, DocuStar is becoming Vya.
More than 20 years ago, I had a vision for the print industry. I saw the opportunity to provide quality, reliable print jobs quickly to our clients. Since DocuStar opened its doors, our clients came to know us for not just the quality of our work, but also the quality of our people and the care and attention we bring to every single one of our jobs.

I have to admit – a recent social media post we shared caused me to do a double take. Last week, we shared an article from Harvard Business Review called “Stop trying to delight your customers.” Unsure of what the article was really about – and why we were sharing it – I took a look. And I totally got it.

Gleanster, a leading voice in business technology research, insight and analysis, recently released their benchmark report on marketing resource management (MRM). Even living in a world that revolves around MRM every day, it’s always important to occasionally step back and view the industry through a fresh lens, and this report certainly provides that. More than anything, it does a good job of painting the challenges marketers face today as they look for MRM (and technology in general) to improve operations.
It wouldn’t surprise anyone if I said technology plays a big role in our daily lives. We spend most of our days staring at a screen of some sort, whether it’s in our office, on a bus, train or airplane, walking down the sidewalk, or just sitting on the couch. And as we become more comfortable with technology, we’ve placed more of our responsibilities in the hands of technology. This is as true of people as it is business.

An article from chiefoutsiders.com recently published the statistic that most buyers are usually 70% through the sales cycle before they make initial contact with a sales person or company representative. As the article points out, this has some serious implications for marketers and how they go about their job. Where I think marketing has the biggest impact on the sales cycle is in the content it delivers, whether directly or indirectly, to support the sales team.
Okay, so don’t forget about branding, but everyone always talks about social media in the context of branding. So today, we’re going to focus on social media’s role in building your bottom line by closing deals…
It’s very easy in life to embrace an “out with the old, in with the new!” attitude. After all, newer is most always perceived to be better. The problem with this attitude is that it supposes the correct course of action is one or the other; a classic “if not A, then B” scenario. While that’s a theorem that’s important for software developers, mathematicians and philosophers to know, it’s not necessarily a good rule for businesses to follow.
