007 returns in ‘Skyfall’

Can you believe it’s been 50 years since the first James Bond film? “Dr. No” premiered in 1962, and then the third film, “Goldfinger,” became one of the first true blockbuster films tied to merchandizing. The Bond franchise is still alive and kicking, with its emphasis on cars, gadgets, drinks, Bond girls, exotic locations and cool villains. It’s a formula that continues to work well, and we’ll see the new iteration with “Skyfall” premiering this week in Great Britain and next week in the United States.

One part of the Bond formula includes the cool movie posters, and you can see the version for the latest movie above. They’ve become simpler through the years, and I’m still partial to the wild posters from the Sixties. A collection of cool Bond posters is a great way to dress up a room, and a wholesale poster frame option can make them look much more professional to give you something much better than a dorm room look.

Marketing a barbershop in social media world

Like any small business, a barbershop’s success depends on many factors. Talent and hard work rank at the top, along with the ability to work well with customers. If you own a barbershop, you’re good at what you do and you love your work, you’ll probably do just fine.

Still, promoting your business is still important, and in today’s social media world you should be taking advantage of sites like Facebook and Twitter for promotional purposes. The key is letting your customer base be your marketing tool, and these social media sites make that possible. Of course you should consult with an expert in this area or do some research, but building out your “Likes” on a Facebook page for your barbershop for example can be a huge assets for your business.

Of course, old school tactics still work as well and can’t be ignored. Simple things like glossy brochures with full color printing can help attract new customers, and you can shop around online for the best prices like searching for print brochures at other stores on the web.

The key is finding the right balance for your business. So don’t just focus on the work. Put the time in to promote your business as well.
