Kudos to Our Clients & Us

Recently a few of our hospitality clients have won awards from different entities in recognition of their consistency in pleasing their clients. Awards from organizations like TripAdvisor, About.com and various local and national publications. These are especially important today because they are driven by their customer’s input using social media.  We have worked with many clients to consult and manage social media accounts to push certain events and customer satisfaction projects. While we at Alchemi Design would like to claim full responsibility for our client’s awards through our dedication to their branding and advertising, it is a large part due to their individual experiences with each customer that seals the deal. We can use this opportunity to point out that the common factor here is consistency. These clients who are recognized have consistent advertising practices we recommend in many outlets which we are happy to create and expedite for them. Not to mention that having our firm actually do this advertising work frees up their staff so they can devote their time to the customer service that will inspire even more customers to seek them out. We congratulate these clients on their wisdom and hard work!

A Reflection On What Giving Means

Easter is now behind us but some people are still engaged in the Giving Season and hoping to Multiply Miracles. We were hard at work even before Easter to create a Stewardship Campaign for Woods Church that focused on the concept of Multiplying Miracles for a large community. This campaign evolved into a multiple step project starting with a new logo that conveyed the idea of giving back to the community and that our actions can come full circle. Then moving on to a three fold brochure, letterhead, reply card and envelopes. This was a great project to see in the final presentation, take a look for yourself!

It’s Event Season!

Spring is the perfect season for wedding shows and networking events to draw prospective clients to visit your location for future business. Everyone is happy to get out after a long cold winter (like this one was!) and seeing is definitely believing when the venue puts its best foot forward to show off how they look and work during an event. The key to a successful event is attendance, both for the venue and any vendor participating. To maximize the attendance takes a comprehensive and timely marketing effort with a variety of targeted media engaged in getting the message out. No, social media alone is not yet the only way to get the word of an event out but it is definitely a part of it. A multi-media approach is best at any budget level including print, social media, radio, TV, signage and public relations. Hiring someone experienced and knowledgeable to come up with the plan and execute it is best, but if you insist on a DIY approach investing in a targeted marketing plan first is key. Marketing events can be accomplished whether you are working with a large or small budget as long as you can get the most effective results by doing the right things. Consulting with experts in the field of Event Marketing to get the most visitors to your event will reward you with more business in the long run and grow you event year after year.

On March 30th the Historic Inns of Annapolis held their 11th Downtown Annapolis Wedding Fair. In spite of teaming downpours of rain that day, the Fair attracted hundreds of wedding couples and their friends and families who wanted to experience the essence of an “Downtown Annapolis” wedding first hand. The Governor Calvert house was dressed to the nines with over the top wedding decor and flowers provided by several vendors. An abundance of the Historic Inns wedding fare and signature drinks kept the guests well fed and happy while they shopped with local wedding vendors, and several DJ’s lent a variety of music to the festivities.

Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa Bridal Show Recap

The Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa’s annual Bridal show was held on March 22 during a one day reprieve in the weather from Old Man Winter. The balmy breezes and mild temperature gave the record three hundred attendees a real feel for what their wedding could be like at the gorgeous waterfront property. Dozens of vendors added to the show atmosphere with music demonstrations, beautiful decor in the two ballrooms, bridal fashions, and product samples. Many brides shopped the show then relaxed outside enjoying the view from the Waterfront Wedding Dome. Food and drink tastings were provided by the Resort, several weddings were booked that day and a great time was had by all!
