CenturyLink is constantly improving its Fiber Internet network to bring customers a reliable and affordable solution for their everyday Internet needs. Customers have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of speeds to make sure they get the service they want. They can also get a home phone service that gives families additional options, such as when the younger kids don't have a cell phone and need to talk to their friends or even for a home-based business for mom or dad. Internet plus phone is still a great combination to help households across the country to stay connected to an ever-connected world.

It also makes a great revenue stream for small businesses that want to sell CenturyLink as an authorized retailer. And RS&I, a master distributor and sales agent, has teamed up with CenturyLink to provide such an opportunity for entrepreneurs and business owners.

You always hear about thinking outside the box to generate new ideas and efficiencies. But what if you took all of those ideas and put them back into an actual box?

That's exactly what Digital Electronic Supply (DES) has done with their boxes of cable and RS&I is proud to partner with such an innovative company. It provides our authorized retailers who install satellite TV and Internet with an excellent solution for their everyday installation needs.

DES manufactures a wide variety of cable types, including several variations of RG6. The key to their success, according to many technicians, is their convertible box that was engineered with the technician in mind to facilitate an efficient cable feed while protecting the box from potential damage at the same time. The "Reel-In-A-Box" packaging has a number of features that make their packaging truly tech-friendly.

Getting to Know RS&I

When deciding which marketing tactics to pursue, be sure to consider signs that can be put up in a yard or on the roadside. With a professional look and a simple call-to-action, these signs can be an effective and non-invasive way to build your brand in your local community. 

As you are respectful to your local public and private properties, you'll find yard signs to be a good way to educate others about your products and services. The most important lesson to follow when it comes to yard signs is to be respectful of where you put them in the ground. If you offend property owners or get in trouble with local law enforcement, your reputation may suffer and it could prevent you from getting the return on investment you need.

Do your homework and follow these best practices for placing yard signs to grow your business with this strategic way of advertising.

DISH has recently launched a whole new marketing campaign geared towards listening to their customers and showing how they plan to solve the greatest TV-viewing issues.

The campaign starts out with an older gentlemen known as The Spokeslistener™. He's a gentle, yet distinguished individual that is highly interested in listening to customer pain points and calmly addresses each one through a series of engaging, clever and funny commercials.

He's also clear to point out that he's not a spokesman, because that's the old way of doing things. Instead, he sets out to be one of the best, trustworthy listeners as he tackles the everyday issues with attempting to view our favorite TV shows.
