Posted by on in Press

B corp logo

What is a B Corporation?

 

We are proud to announce that Bloomin has recently joined the B Corp Community! B Corps (or Benefit Corporations) are for-profit companies that have adopted a new type of company structure, to ultimately solve social and environmental problems.

 

In a nutshell, Benefit Corporations are required to consider the impact of their decisions on shareholders and stakeholders equally. In this way, B Corps actively seek to improve standards for company stakeholders including: workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment. Additionally, each company hoping to become a B Corp must score at least at least 82 points on a rigorous impact assessment proctored by B Labs in order to become certified. Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

24 Best Ideas For Memorable Customer Service By Tina Berres Filipski

PPB asked recipients of this year’s PPAI Supplier Star Award to comment on the elements they think are critical to ensuring long-lasting customer satisfaction. What are your three best pieces of advice to keep customers happy?

Don R. Martin, President Bloomin’ Promotions (UPIC: Bloom108)

1. Offer solutions, not just products. We encourage our distributors to share information about each project early, so that we can make recommendations to ensure it is as successful and cost-effective as possible.

2. Manage the customer’s expectations. Because our products are handmade, there are slight variations in the thickness of the seed paper, as well as subtle color variations. We do our best to minimize these variations, but we encourage distributors to help manage the customer’s expectations.

3. Sample the product. We encourage distributors to plant our products and see for themselves that our paper really does grow. If they have seen how well it grows firsthand, and have that peace of mind when a customer asks, it is a powerful selling tool.
