What Does Your skucon #EMTPatch Say About You?

Comments: No Comments
Published on: March 15, 2017

We were fortunate to be sponsors for the promotional products industry’s most disruptive educational event, skucon. And, because patches are on fire in both the retail and promotional markets we thought it fitting that custom adhesive patches be our contribution to the skucon swag bag. EMT and commonsku created five different patches with the help of the talented Tee Hamilton. These patches are representative of the different functions needed to run a successful business operation.

Did you attend skucon? If so, which patch did you snag? If not, take a look at the photo. Which one fits you?

You might tell the story through actual written word, or maybe you have possess the skills necessary to transform thoughts and ideas into pictures and logos. Whatever your unique skills might be, your existence in the mix is necessary because you add color and breathe life into what would otherwise be a boring world full of monotony and routine.

You are responsible for ensuring that not only do people know about the pie, but that they feel like they can’t live without having a piece of it. You believe that your company has the best story to tell and are charged with making sure this story is heard by the greatest number of people in the shortest amount of time. A marketer is Cupid personified, armed with a bag full of your-company-branded arrows, you head into the world with the goal of helping people fall in love.

Ah, the closers! You arrive on the scene fueled by equal amounts of coffee and ambition. The entrepreneurs dreamed it up, the creatives brought it to life, the marketers have told the world about it, and now you get to head in to seal up the deal! Your feature-benefit game is strong and you can overcome the objections of the masses before people even have time to object. You are the relationship builder, creative problem solver, and customer-factory liaison. You are charming and full of passion and personality, and are able to think on your feet.

There’s no time in your world for unicorns and rainbows. You are the straight shooter tasked with efficiency. Systems and processes? Now that’s your jam! More often than not, you can be found behind the scenes, working long hours. Your desk is most likely piled high with orders to enter and bills to pay, which you could get to a lot more quickly if you weren’t also fighting “UPS Delivery Exception Notification” and “Why is the printer jammed again” fires. Yet still, you do what it takes to make it happen. Creatives can keep doing their thing. Marketers can keep marketing. Sales can keep selling. And the entrepreneurs can keep…well.. God only knows what they are doing by now, but thanks to you, we can all keep on keepin’ on. To the operations rockstars, you are the unsung heroes, and for this we salute you.
