Quarterly Campaigns

Marketing Tools

At Instant Imprints, we see it as the Partner Support Team’s job to give you the tools that you will need to build your business. Once you have the tools we count on you to implement them, so that we can all grow. Our support of your marketing efforts is rooted in an Annual Marketing Calendar and a series of actions that we call the Quarterly Campaign.

Here is an overview of the that process as it was written at the beginning of 2016.
