2010: New Year, New Opportunities

December 31st, 2009

New Year’s Eve is the celebration that commemorates the beginning of a new year.  For some, 2009 was a trying year yet we learned new ways to survive in an ongoing recession.  New technological opportunities boomed allowing companies to reach new masses.  Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and blogging sites took over conventional communication methods and a new phenomenon emerged.

As we get ready to kick start the new year, we should take a little time to reflect on what we want to tackle in the upcoming year. Positive thinking is the key to success.  It is helpful to set goals and stay focus to accomplish these objectives.  We hope that the new year is filled with creative inspiration, new business opportunities and a healthy lifestyle.

The Backdrops Beautiful Way for 2010:

Budget – Learn to work with lean budgets
Experiment – Don’t be afraid to try new strategies in reaching a new audience
Adapt – Every customer is different
Understand – Understand current trends and utilize modern technology
Target – Find the niche that works in today’s times
Inspiration – Be creative and let your imagination inspire
Focus – Listen and engage with your customers
Unite – connect with others and establish new partnerships to maximize exposure
Learn – Continue to develop new concepts and expand on industry knowledge

Backdrops Beautiful is extremely grateful to have met so many wonderful and creative people this past year.  We established new business partnerships and gained new client relations by becoming members of elite organizations such as ISES, MPI, NACE and UDMA.  We attended many meetings and dinner events that allowed us to create brand awareness and showcase our backdrops.  These organizations have given us the opportunity to work with many talented professionals in various industries and we look forward to being more involved in the upcoming year.

Additionally, we exhibited at many tradeshows and will be no different in the year to come.   Our participation at tradeshows such as the Special Events Show, Dance Teacher Summit, Rhee Gold’s Dance Life Teacher Conference, Dance Teacher Web Conference & Expo and UDMA’s Dance Resource & Costume Shows gave us the opportunity to meet with all our existing clients and meet new ones. These shows allow us to work on a personal level with everyone and obtain feedback to create new backdrops in line with today’s trends.

We wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year.

UDMA Secaucus, NJ

October 14th, 2009

Backdrops Beautiful would like to thank everyone for stopping by our booth at the UDMA Dance Resource & Costume Show in Secaucus, NJ. The 3 winners of our $300 off backdrop rental raffle will be announced via email.

The Secaucus show was outstanding! Some school owners were so excited when they viewed our highlighted themed backdrops in our brochure that they decided they didn’t want to waste any more time researching for their upcoming dance recitals and booked from us on the spot!

We showcased our Dance Ballerina Backdrop as requested by our customers’. Rather than displaying a digital backdrop, we created a 10 x 10 version of our product to provide customers the opportunity to see, touch and feel the quality of the painted backdrop they will receive upon ordering from us. This backdrop attracts many people because of the vibrant colors and whimsical appeal that can create an impact at any dance recital.

UDMA’s Dance Resource & Costume Show in Atlanta, GA

October 2nd, 2009

UDMA Atlanta Booth Sept 2009 (1)

Last week we were greeted with great Southern hospitality while attending the 16th annual UDMA show in Atlanta, GA. Atlanta is a beautiful city with great landmarks and interesting sites such as the Coca Cola Museum, the Birth Home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Gladys Knight and Ron Winan’s Chicken and Waffles, where we chose to treat ourselves to a delicious meal.

Despite the flood earlier in the week and more rain on Saturday night, there was a good turnout of exhibitors and attendees who consisted mostly of dance instructors who came from all over the state and surrounding states such as South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, and Tennessee to name a few.

We were so pleased to see and speak with so many happy dance teachers, many of whom were customers we had the opportunity to meet for the first time, face-to-face. It was also a chance to say hello to fellow vendors and network with CEO and Publisher Joseph Cote of and Dancer Magazine.

At UDMA, we showcased our versatile Candyland backdrop which many responded very favorable to; “WOW!” was the common phrase heard throughout the show. Many commented that our Candyland backdrop was dynamically different in that it popped with vibrant colors and truly captured the theme! When they actually had the opportunity to touch and feel the backdrop, they were impressed with the quality and artistic workmanship.

Thank you UDMA for making last weekend’s Dance Resource & Costume Show at the Gwinnett Center a success.

We are now proud members of UDMA. UDMA_2
