More Traffic, Less Hassle with Microblogs

Our Cain & Company team had the pleasure of participating in FABTECH 2023 in Chicago. It was wonderful connecting with our clients who attended and, in many cases, were exhibiting their innovative products and services. North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event is a “one-stop-shop” venue attracting suppliers from around the country and featuring the latest industry products and developments.

Cain & Company Senior Marketing Executive/Media Director Rick Heffner, Digital Media Specialist Leann Nelson, and Marketing Coordinator Alyssa Leighty manned the Cain & Company booth and took in all the event had to offer from September 11-14.

As a full-service advertising and marketing agency that is celebrating 50 years in business, we have decades of experience to support our clients’ needs. We take pride in having an edge in the B2B, industrial, and manufacturing spaces, and Fabtech gave us the perfect opportunity to showcase our growing portfolio of full-service marketing services, including design, trade show planning, website development, and digital advertising.

Visitors to our booth entered for a chance to win $2,500 toward their next marketing project – to give their marketing a boost. We’ll be drawing the winner this Friday 9/29/2023.

Plans are already in motion for Fabtech Orlando, October 15-17, 2024, at Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. See you at FABTECH 2024!

Scanlans Bar & Grill website redesign
The Scanlan’s wanted their Rockford, Illniois, bar and grill, Scanlan’s, to have its own website. Not only a great place for evening entertainment, but also a perfect lunch spot for the businesses nearby, Scanlan’s, located at 2921 City View Drive in Rockford, opened in 1999 and is a sister bar of Rockford’s Filling Station. They contacted Cain & Company to help with this marketing project. Our team worked with the owners to create a new logo, take photos, and build their website. (Of course, we sampled their amazing menu items!) Our designers expertly captured the neighborhood vibe of this fantastic spot for food, beverages, and entertainment.

However, BIMI—or Brand Indicators for Message Identification—is a tech standard that gets more out of your email marketing, especially if you embrace it before competitors do..
