a next generation approach to blogging & inbound marketing
Great blogging is more than just SEO. Keywords are like oxygen in the air. Nobody really thinks about it — they just breathe.
But what readers do notice is how breathing fresh air makes you feel — the crisp smell of pine needles, the energetic burst of the lungs from an uphill jog, the freshness of spring soaring through trees like an epiphany. That’s what people remember — why they react and respond to your business with pure stamina.
Great blogging is primal. Elicit instinct, the pure flight of adrenaline — the hairs on the back of your neck — that burn in the legs and in the pit of your stomach — and the reader will follow you just about anywhere you want to run.
My primal approach to blogging raises more than just neckhairs:
- One client’s blogs experienced over 1,500 visitors per year with 399 new qualified leads.
- Another client’s blogs experienced 1,000 visitors per year with 240 new qualified leads.
- One client’s blogs helped raise organic search results by 30% with 270 new contacts.

You know what feels pretty sweet? Partnering with great people.
After all, strong partnerships make the world go around — where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. Your success and theirs is integrated — synchronously beneficial and symbiotic. You work together like distinct parts in the same machine.
That’s why we couldn’t be happier with our partnered collaboration with Amazon. CTM is a major supplier of shipping and printing labelers for Amazon’s Fulfillment Centers. In fact, Amazon ships millions of products that have been labeled by a CTM label applicator. Amazon’s level of trust in our labeling machines is a source of community pride.
Nobody wants to reinvent the wheel. But then again, how did the wheel ever become a wheel in the first place?
Some caveman prototyped it — hashed out a design and tested it ‘til it rolled like a stone. And to do that, he had to experiment — play around — until he found something that worked. It’s the same way with custom enhanced finned tube fabrication.
In order to build a fin tube made to order, you need to work with a manufacturer who has the capacity — the experience, capabilities, and infrastructure — to be able to experiment.
You’ve got an idea — a modification, an improvement, an invention to make life easier — but you need to find somebody to build it.

“I’m Henry Hill, and I quit smoking with a pharmaceutical — side effects may include farting, seizures, and heart attacks….”
You don’t need to be a Hollywood movie star or a Wiseguy to wonder if there’s a better way to quit smoking than a freaking heart-fart attack.
Can you effectively quit smoking cigarettes with a tobacco alternative like an herbal smoking blend?
Want in on a secret that only jewelers who aren’t paid on commission are willing to share?
When it comes to jewelry, affordable and quality are not necessarily exclusive. You really can find high-quality jewelry and still save money, if you know how.
You don’t need to spend a fortune on a piece of jewelry you’ve fallen in love with. There are plenty of ways to find quality jewelry for cheap and save money. A beloved piece speaks to the heart in ways an appraisal cannot measure.
Buying the wrong labeling machine is like asking for a puppy on your birthday and getting an elephant instead. “What the world am I going to do with this?”
Many of our customers come to us in this very predicament. They need a labeling solution to solve a particular labeling dilemma, one that’s unique to their core product. But their previous labeling provider delivered them a setup suited for entirely different packaging.
Like an elephant parked next to the Prius in your garage, it doesn’t exactly fit.

The finned tube industry suffers from a lack of quality standards. It’s really a small market with many unqualified manufacturers slinging snake oil. Much like Dr. Comfort’s Candy-Covered Cathartic Compounds, their “solutions” are little more than ground up zinc, mercury, a pinch of arsenic. In many cases, they can actually do you more harm than good.
When built right, a fin tube is a sleek cylinder of efficient thermodynamics. Essentially, a DuraFin tube creates a barrier between two fluids or gases to enable the exchange of heat energy. It prudently spreads and increases the cooling surface area within a confined space to achieve superior efficiency.
Yet many manufacturers use very poor standards: They cut costs that affect quality, do little to no testing for quality control. Many are practically building tubes out of a dirt floor barn – that’s the Wild West reality of the finned tube market.
By the time you realize the difference, it’s too late: The fin tube doesn’t work effectively or breaks down; you’re left holding the bag.
It’s kind of like the Oregon Trail all over again: Do you start all over or die of dysentery?
As a kid, ever play blind man’s bluff?
It’s a lot like tag, but you can’t see a thing. You’re blindfolded in a field, scrambling like crazy as every kid on the block screams your name, taunting you to tag them out. Blindly waving your arms like a madman, you fumble, trip over a lawn chair, fall flat on your face.
Sound fun? In many ways, it can be a lot like buying a labeling system without first providing a proper product sample. It hurts right in the pocketbook.
When you don’t furnish your labeling manufacturer a correct and accurate sample of what’s to be labeled…
…you’re going down, hard
