Fast Smart Phone Access to Your Website With QR Codes

Starting this month, consumers visiting our clients Ken Jones Ski Mart and Central Mass Agway stores can now join their e-clubs with a point of their smart phones. How? Through the integration of QR codes within in-store signage. It's just one of the way we're using these 2-dimensional barcodes to help clients promote everything from mobile coupons to instantaneous web site access.  You've probably seen one in a magazine, on a postcard, or even a billboard and wondered what they are.  A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode readable by QR scanners, mobile phones with a camera, and smartphones.  Your customers scan the image of the QR Code to automatically display text, contact information, or open a web page in their phone's browser.

Ripano Stoneworks Featured on "Local Discovery New England"

New Englanders from the Lakes Region to Cape Cod are discovering a new show this fall. Discovery New England  launched in September and featured our client Ripano Stoneworks. When Burke Advertising worked to get Ripano placed on Discovery New England on MyTV , we didn't realize we had a budding TV personality on our hands. Client Matt Laliberte's professionalism and pride for the craftsmanship of his team shines through and he really captures the essence of their unique marketing position. Although we are very excited with the visibility the show has given Ripano, we're also excited about extending that reach through their social media channels. Through Ripano's Facebook and YouTube pages (in addition to ours) we've been able to expand the reach of this opportunity beyond the show's viewers.  It's word of mouth in the digital age!

East Coast Lumber - Making A Client Magazine

During one of our creative meetings, we were discussing client East Coast Lumber and how to communicate that they were so much more than well... a lumber yard.

So we did the next best thing, we created it ourselves. Introducing The Design Journal, 16 glossy pages of design ideas, solutions and products for homeowners. It 's everything from kitchen to bath, doors and windows and more from family-owned and operated East Coast Lumber.
