'Tis the season…to strategize and plan for a successful 2011! Yep, the holidays are a great time to take the opportunity to reflect on the past and enjoy the present. But we know that most of us are up nights with one thought, and that is, what's next?
December is a special issue of CustomRetailer that features the Corporate Profiles of our manufacturer partners and advertisers. As a resource, they include some timely facts and figures, but look closer. What you will really see is the clear-eyed, well thought-out strategy of each manufacturer and the roadmap they have outlined to benefit you, their customers. Just by participating in this issue with a Corporate Profile, the manufacturers are assuring you that they value your business. They want you to know more about them, their company and their goals beyond the products that they traditionally advertise to you. I think that says a lot.
The Corporate Profiles are a great read on the people who drive the company, what they stand for as individuals and what values the company culture embraces. It is a very personal holiday greeting to you and the industry. We appreciate that our advertisers entrust us with their voice in this issue to talk with you at a more in-depth level.
So this December, we wish you all a very healthy and happy holiday season. And yes, Virginia, the CustomRetailer team is up nights working on what's next! See you in January!
