Unfortunately if we start using the government to try to reverse this manufacturing problem we are in for bigger problems. We as a nation will only overcome this when as a citizenry, we refuse to purchase anything that can be made here. We need to s…

Dan, I just have two words for you: baby steps. It's only overwhelming if you try to do too much at one time. I know that manufacturers are good at scheduling (or at least they should be.) Create a social media implementation schedule and make it re…

This is one of the issues that I was talking about in one of my posts. How do we (manufacturing guru's) know what to spend our money on or invest our time in? It makes no sense to me!

Great question! It is always ROI for me. I suspect it would be for most. The source is not important just the results. I have spent money on google adwords, got a lot of click thru's but not 1 dollar generated from them, just cost.

Great job Kerry! Keep the info coming!

Dan, it doesn't have to be overwhelming at all. If a manufacturer tries to manage messaging while continuing to do everything they've always done (even when they don't necessarily bring value anymore), THEN it really gets overwhelming. It takes a li…

The fact that manufacturing people are deep into their functional silo, largely clueless about marketing - and accounting, HR, engineering, and IT - while the marketing people are equally deep in theirs, is a lot bigger problem than whether anyone h…

I feel that I have to add that we do know that this is important for our business but it is overwhelming too.

I hope I don't make any marketing people made at me over this post but I have to speak my mind. All of you marketing guru's post some really good stuff like charts, statistics, and lots of reasons why manufacturers shop be on the social sites and ho…

Dan, another GREAT question. I understand it's "loaded" - but it does paint us into the corner of considering every purchase as a one-off proposition, when in reality many of these events are opportunities to develop relationships. At least, that's…

Should buyers go out for competitive quotes when the economy is good, or when the economy is bad? This is a loaded question. The simple answer is a buyer should ALWAYS be looking for the best value for the company. With that being said it is absolet…

Awesome as always Kerry. I have challenged my self and I am trying.

I can point some directions on that. Take a look at the following links: http://ambridgepage.ning.com/ http://bcstem.ning.com/ Actually there are several pushes to move STEM forward. They're also on NING networks for anyone that's interested in th…

Great comment Donald! Even though our schools do teach some very basic technology, they really lack the push toward science (and I don't mean global warming science. I mean let's make something science) and mathematics. Not all students are good at…

manufacture marketing? @!#@*

I hope I don't make any marketing people made at me over this post but I have to speak my mind. All of you marketing guru's post some really good stuff like charts, statistics, and lots of reasons why manufacturers should be on the social sites and how it is so simple or at least not too hard. The problem with this is that we know how to make things. we don't know how to sell things to people that aren't searching for us. (cold calls). We would love to have both your ability to market and our ab… Continue

When do we go out for competetive quotes.

Should buyers go out for competitive quotes when the economy is good, or when the economy is bad? This is a loaded question. The simple answer is a buyer should ALWAYS be looking for the best value for the company. With that being said it is absolutely true that shops will sharpen their pencils when they are running out of work and the economy is slow. But that doesn't mean that buyers should just be happy with what they have. They should be going after every avenue they can find all the… Continue

Process improvement? When I can't get parts for it anymore......

On another blog yesterday, Bernard Martin had a great post about process improvement
Process improvement is something I try to get small shops to look at all the time. Every shop needs to look at every process before they actually have to perform the process. If they just "fly by the seat of their pants" then their pants will surely get holes, tare, fade out and need to be disposed of. All because they were to bull headed or just plain cheap. I have seen shop owners buy a brand new car every 18… Continue

Great small shops

One of the most valuable resources I have found in my 25 years in manufacturing is the value that comes from a small shop. In the past we would be limited to the small local garage shop that would supply a nice product at a great price because of little to no overhead. Today, thanks to the internet we can access thousands of small garage shops all over the world. There are transportation factors to consider but a smart buyer can negotiate really great rates with transportation companies.

In Ame… Continue
