Most companies require graphic design and printing services on a regular basis and Snap Centres handle a wide variety of print and design work for their clients every day. This print and design work ranges from the production of marketing material such as brochures, flyers and catalogues, to the creation of corporate stationery, business cards, basic binding and copying jobs, right through to printing more complex annual reports, canvas prints and even T-Shirt printing.
Consumers are increasingly choosing to receive information via digital or online methods in addition to print and SMEs have modified their marketing strategy and marketing material requirements accordingly. There are now more than 17 million internet users in Australia and more than 1.4 million Australians own or use a smartphone (November 2011). Many SMEs now want to run integrated campaigns, reaching their customers via both print and online methods.
Snap was quick to spot this trend and has diversified its product range in order to take advantage of the new opportunities presented. As a result, we expect the provision of website design and other online marketing services to SMEs to be an increasingly important contributor to Snap's turnover and profits. These are some of the online marketing services most Snap Centres now offer their SME clients over and above traditional print services:
