Build Brand Awareness by Reminding Your Customers
you're here and ready to help...
The most cost effective method for doing so is Email Newsletters!
Every marketing guru knows that the greatest challenge of marketing has always been maintaining a relationship with your customer base and strong relations translates into strong sales... If you are not communicating with your customers on a regular basis, you can be sure your competitors are.
Granted, there are federal laws in place to limit and discourage unsolicited email, also known as SPAM. And any e-marketer is foolish to ignore the laws and controls in place.
But from a marketing aspect, there has never been a greater ability than today's technology to connect and interact with your customer base. Of course, these need to be customers who have signed up, or "opted in" to your email program. Otherwise, you are a spammer and will be shut down.
Introducing the Eljay Oil Cardlock video spot
Just completed a video spot for Eljay Oil, a premiere participant in the CFN/Fuelman Cardlock Fueling network, which is a commercial diesel network across the US and Canada. It's a short clip that will be used to promote their cardlock services.

Every now and then you come across an idea, a philosophy that approaches an old topic from a fresh perspective. That's the case with a new website we recently completed for an organization called Change The Shame. Perry Underwood, who is also the author of the book by the same name, is the principle visionary behind Change The Shame, which addresses a highly controversial subject with a perspective that will surprise you. I encourage you to visit the site and read the book.
Bassett & Brush finally gets our new sign...
Yes, I know it's been a long time coming, but we finally have our new sign and I hope you'll agree, it was worth the wait. OKAY - it should have been up years ago, but it's still pretty cool... and even more so in person, so drive on by and take a peek... ;)
Full color - offset brushed silver lettering... jaaaazzy!

Sad News About Cancer Patient Care
Got some rather sad news today... Cancer Patient Care, which is a uniquely Spokane non-profit organization, which has provided support for low income victims of cancer and their families for over 50 years, is closing it's doors. This is truly a loss for Spokane, as Cancer Patient Care was one of only two organizations like it in the United States. Hopes are that another similar non-profit will pick up some of the services offered so the legacy will continue.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the many selfless volunteers and the families they have helped, as well as those who now may not receive the help and support they so desperately need when dealing with this murderous disease.

A New Look for Eljay Oil's Cardlock Fueling Sites
We recently redesigned the graphics for Eljay Oil's Valleyway Cardlock Fueling location and wanted to share a photo - this was particularly fun since we rarely redesign fueling canopies and fuel pump panels. As always, we'd love to hear what you think...
