Minuteman Press Franchise in Irvine, CA Achieves Record Monthly Sales Driven By Apparel and Promotional Products Growth

Minuteman Press International Inc

Frank Matsumoto is the owner of Minuteman Press located at 18 Technology Drive, Suite 171, in Irvine, California. Frank has owned the business since 2010 and recently achieved record monthly sales. Frank says, “My growth was sparked by increases in apparel and promotional products sales. This made up 60% of my business while wide format printing was also a growth driver for us.” For nearly 12 years, Frank has built his brand by building relationships and following the Minuteman Press franchise business model to market his business. “I personally visit other local businesses to get to know other people and so they can get to know me. It also gives me the chance to see what they are doing in terms of promotional products as behind every counter are items like cups, pens, and t-shirts. Everywhere I go, I make sure to wear branded Minuteman Press apparel and I come prepared with our branded product catalogs. It starts with me wearing my own branded apparel and showing them our products, and then it goes – and grows – from there.” “As soon as I educate clients on our ability to go beyond printing, their mindset changes and suddenly they realize they can use our services for their apparel and promotional needs.” -Frank Matsumoto, owner, Minuteman Press franchise, Irvine, CA One client that has taken full advantage of Minuteman Press’ printing, apparel, and promotional products capabilities is HI-CHEW ™. Frank says, “We started our relationship on a phone call for a rush order of postcards. I visited with them, introduced myself, and secured the order. At first, we did a run of 25,000 die-cut postcards. This turned into a reorder for 75,000 and then later over 100,000 die-cut postcards featuring HI-CHEW™ products and coupons.” Frank continues, “Thanks to fulfilling that first order and then building that relationship, the number of items we’ve provided for HI-CHEW™ has grown considerably over the past four years. At the end of 2021, we did their string backpacks, sunglasses, laminated tote bags, t-shirts, 13,000 hand sanitizers, keychains, and stickers on their specialty buckets. We also provide branded apparel for their employees and for customer giveaways.” “There’s no way to replace the touch and feel of a promotional item or printed piece. It is simply good business to use print as a marketing tool to reach your target audience and help increase brand awareness as well as ROI.” -Frank Matsumoto Over the past two years, Minuteman Press in Irvine has remained open and operating throughout the pandemic as an essential business. During that time, Frank ramped up his marketing across all channels. He says, “We used mailers, built up our social media, and solidified our presence by generating positive Google reviews. We have earned a 5-star rating with nearly 100 reviews, and we are proud to receive such amazing customer feedback.” Today, as more business events return to Irvine, Frank has seen an uptick in trade show supplies. Frank says, “Orders for trade shows can include everything from booth displays, banners, and table throws to apparel and promotional products. For all of these items, Minuteman Press is here to help.“ “Irvine has one of the largest business hubs in Orange County. There are a lot of opportunities here, and I also am in a business complex building relationships each day with other business owners. I’ve used a combination of direct marketing, promotional mailers, email marketing, social media marketing, and networking through my BNI group to grow over the years.” Prior to franchising with Minuteman Press, Frank worked in sales. “I was looking at several franchises and did my due diligence. I really liked the structure of Minuteman Press, as well as the B2B nature of the business. I didn’t want to rely on walk-ins like a general retail store, and I love the Monday-Friday business hours. It gives me the freedom and flexibility to do things like pick up my daughter from school and take her to her fencing class while still being able to build my business.” Frank appreciates the ongoing local support he’s received from Minuteman Press since buying the business. “Whenever I need something, Dan Byers and the regional team is here to help me. I also like the FLEX software we use to manage all of the different aspects of the business.” When asked what the biggest lesson he’s learned over the past 12 years as a business owner, Frank answers, “What comes to mind is one of the first things that was taught during the Minuteman Press training program. There was a sign that said, ‘If you don’t market, you won’t make it.’ Over the years, and especially over the past two years, I can say that marketing has been huge for our sustained growth and success.” For more information on Minuteman Press in Irvine, CA, visit their website: https://www.irvine.minutemanpress.com.

The Grave Wealth Gap Between Celebrities And You

PartyCasino Canada

There’s no secret that global superstars make millions of dollars in their lifetime and continue to accumulate wealth even beyond the grave. But did you ever contemplate just how much that may be? A new blog post by PartyCasino Canada reveals the highest earning celebrities during the last year and the last decade through insightful statistics divided by earnings per month, day, and even down to the second. The blog reveals that the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who held number one for the past ten years was pushed down to a third place and there’s a new king in town: Roald Dahl, beloved author, poet and screenwriter, nipped the spot instead. While the list is a mix between musicians and authors, the majority of places are held by musical superstars where Prince, Michael Jackson, Bing Crosby and Elvis Presley are lingering around the top. The trend where musicians are selling their entire music catalogue to publishing companies is an added factor to why this profession in particular has turned into a multibillion-dollar machine that investors worldwide can’t wait to get their hands on. While revenue from touring turned almost non-existent over the last two years, Shakira, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, and David Bowie took the opportunity to hand over their music rights in return for a hefty sum of money. Owning the publishing rights means a steady cashflow even during tumultuous times. The blog post shows that money doesn't slow after the passing of a superstar, in some cases it even increases. In light of the mind-boggling money that is spent to own the rights to the most legendary musicians on the planet, this list gives you a hint as to why publishing houses are enticed to pay out hefty sums in return for the rights in perpetuity. In addition to ranking the highest earning stars, PartyCasino has also created a calculator where you can compare your earnings with the mentioned celebrities. Type in your monthly wage and see how many minutes, or perhaps seconds, it will take them to make the same money - all from beyond the grave.

Going Back to Work: Who Will You Miss More? Your Family or Your Dog?

YourUpdateTV

With more people returning to the office, there’s a lot of anxiety and stress around what to do with four-legged family members who have become accustomed to having their pet parents at home. Recently, international dog trainer, Tom Davis, partnered with Wag! on a satellite media tour to talk about the type of care and training required to keep our pets happy. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/noALR-no8ig Over the past 2 years, many people adopted puppies and dogs during the pandemic. Right now, and over the next few weeks, millions of people will be returning to offices and workplaces for the first time. This transition period raises several issues for dogs: increased stress and anxiety, as well as lack of exercise and social play. In honor of National Puppy Day (March 23rd), Wag! conducted a national survey* and found that out of the 1,001 respondents, 62% percent have adopted a dog in the last two years during the pandemic. 41% of those dog parents returning to work said that they’ll miss their dogs even more than their kids or spouses. Out of those new dog parents, 76% are nervous about pet care challenges upon returning to work in- person. Some other key highlights include: Dogs are the best medicine: 93% say parenting a dog has provided them mental health support, while 48% say that dog parenting has decreased their anxiety. Puppy love is real: 37% say that the most surprising thing about parenting a new puppy was the overwhelming amount of love for their new friend Pet insurance is the single biggest challenge for new dog parents: 63% of respondents expressed surprise at how much time, effort and money was required for pet insurance, more than any other challenge of becoming a new pet parent. Dogs and parents can both suffer behavioral issues/anxiety being separated from each other. Services like Wag!, which connects Pet Parents with local Pet Caregivers for dog walking and longer drop-ins for play time, can give your dog the much-needed stimulation, and peace-of-mind for pet parents. Like human health insurance, it’s important to also get insurance for our pets. Pets are our family, and their health is just as important. WagWalking.com is a great resource for more information on pet insurance and wellness. For more information on the survey and Wag! check out WagWalking.com About Tom Davis: Tom Davis is an international dog trainer who specializes in dog training based on canine behavior, and he is known for taking in some of the hardest behavior modification training cases.

Houston Mother Gives ‘Inside Look’ at Staying Connected to the Internet During the Pandemic

Comcast Houston

HOUSTON, TX — A Houston mother is one of the millions of low-income Americans who will now be able to get free, fast and reliable Comcast broadband service, thanks to the new Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) — a federally-funded program that gives eligible households a credit of up to $30 per month towards the cost of broadband service. “When the pandemic first happened, that’s when everything got pretty chaotic,” Jamila Byrd, a Houston mother of two, said. “You don’t really think about how important the Internet is until you don’t have it anymore.” According to the White House, an estimated 42 million Americans are in the same or similar situation as Byrd; they don’t have access to high-speed internet at home. The hardship, often referred to as the “digital divide”, was exacerbated by the pandemic when families had to virtually learn and work from home. “We had to go to friends’ houses, my sister’s house, so my kids could do assignments,” Byrd said. “It takes away a lot of time from us being together as a family. It’s tough for everybody.” The goal of the program is to help low-income households connect and stay connected to high-speed internet for work, school, healthcare and more. Eligible households that enroll in the program get up to a $30 monthly credit ($75 for eligible Tribal land households). Customers can use the monthly credit towards Xfinity Internet and mobile services. Eligible households are those that qualify for programs like the Federal Pell Grant, National School Lunch Program, SNAP, Medicaid, housing assistance and other government programs. “The Affordable Connectivity Program is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Comcast is proud to actively support,” Houston Regional Vice President of External Affairs Toni Beck said. “As a company and society, it is imperative that we work together to help people connect to the transformative power of the internet both at home and on the go. At Comcast, we’re doing just that.” In response to the ACP, Comcast introduced a new plan called Internet Essentials Plus that offers twice the download speed – up to 100 Mbps – of the traditional Internet Essentials service, a cable modem and a WiFi router for $29.95 per month. With the $30 ACP credit, Internet Essentials Plus is effectively free for qualifying families. Customers who are looking for home internet and top-rated mobile service can now have both at an affordable price. Internet Essentials customers paying $9.95 per month can add one line of Unlimited Xfinity Mobile ($45 per month) for $24.95 per after applying the ACP credit. In February, during a White House event, Vice President Kamala Harris, Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, and Senior Advisor Mitch Landrieu announced more than 10 million households are enrolled in the Affordable Connectivity Program, the nation’s largest-ever broadband affordability program. Byrd was recently approved for the ACP credit. “I’m grateful for this program,” Byrd said. “If I had to use one word to describe our household environment right now, it’s unity. It brings us together. It helps us to be able to do the things that we need to do, and then we have more time for family time.” To learn more about the ACP, eligibility or to apply go to Xfinity.com/acp or call 1-844-389-4681. About Comcast Corporation Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is a global media and technology company that connects people to moments that matter. We are principally focused on broadband, aggregation, and streaming with 57 million customer relationships across the United States and Europe. We deliver broadband, wireless, and video through our Xfinity, Comcast Business, and Sky brands; create, distribute, and stream leading entertainment, sports, and news through Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, Universal Studio Group, Sky Studios, the NBC and Telemundo broadcast networks, multiple cable networks, Peacock, NBCUniversal News Group, NBC Sports, Sky News, and Sky Sports; and provide memorable experiences at Universal Parks and Resorts in the United States and Asia.

Petition Urging Tom Brady's Return a Huge Success After Brady's Initial Retirement

Brady in 2022

Petition by the Group “Brady in 2022” Gave Tom & Gisele Brady the Only Simple Resolution That Would Allow Brady to Continue Playing While at the Same Time Making Gisele Very Happy Only by reading this emotionally-charged petition can anyone clearly understand the depth of Brady’s decision to return to the NFL with Gisele’s blessing A petition, posted at www.bradyin2022.com on February 27 th (2 weeks before Tom Brady un-retired), as an " Open Letter to Tom & Gisele Brady” may likely have influenced the NFL star’s return to the game, according to the petition creator, Stephen Marks. The petition had been sent to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers PR Department who were very excited about it and promised to pass it along to Brady. The petition, expressing Marks’ and many other NFL fans opinions on the situation, first explained to Gisele that she was “ 100% correct that Tom had been unfair to her all these years as an absentee husband and father by keeping his football life so strongly separated from his family life. ” The petition explained to Tom how he can now easily share his football life with his family life, giving him a closer and happier family while at the same time continuing to play football at its highest level. The petition urged Brady to take Gisele with him on road games to finally share that special part of his football life that he had never before shared; the love and comradery with his teammates and coaches during practices as much as during games; while at the same time spending every single night with Gisele. To share that sheer joy of his football life will make Tom a better husband. Same for his kids. who can easily fly to his road games on Friday after school and also share that same joy of Tom’s football life on the weekends. A joy that they too have never before experienced, making his family closer than they've ever been. The petition also explained to Brady how by retiring, he would be “ haunted every day for the rest of his life at how his last game against the Rams ended. How after performing his Brady magic once again, bringing his team from a 24 point deficit in the closing minutes of the 3 rd quarter to tie the game with 40 seconds left in the game, he nonetheless never had the chance to touch the ball again, which was just plain wrong. His defensive teammates and coaches want so very badly to make it up to Tom for their horrible coverage of Cooper Kupp, and the horrible play-call blitz that left Kupp so wide open, ” leading the Rams and not the Buccaneers to become Super Bowl champions. The petition closed by telling Brady that “ the pain he is still feeling over retiring is also being felt by all his teammates, coaches and fans.” Since the reason Brady gave for his un-retiring mirrored what was written in the petition, either Brady was indeed influenced by the petition, or the petition’s writer, Stephen Marks of south Florida, knew after Brady’s retirement announcement exactly how to resolve the problems between Tom and Gisele before Tom & Gisele figured it out themselves. Must See Petition at: www.bradyin2022.com Petition creator Stephen Marks, is a nationally-known political consultant; authored the highly-acclaimed book “ Confessions of a Political Hitman (Sourcebooks); has written about political corruption for Penthouse Magazine (yes, folks really read it for the articles); and has written and produced successful SuperPac ads for presidential elections. Marks has also written music for the nationally syndicated “ Dr. Demento ” program. With extensive media experience appearing on over 100 TV and radio programs, including CNN, FOX News, and PBS, Marks is available for interviews and can be contacted at (305) 900-7747.
