Thanksgiving Thoughts with Ann McIntyre of FRC Marketing

By Matthew Whitaker   |    November 17, 2020   |    12:21 PM


As we enter into the season of thankfulness and giving, Intelligent Office of Alexandria is reminded of the many valuable relationships that we have built over the years. We are thankful for the opportunities that we have had to help our clients succeed and grow in their businesses. 

This month, we are pleased to introduce our client, Ann McIntyre of FRC Marketing, which specializes in developing highly-effective, branded merchandising programs for clients nationwide and is affiliated with HALO Branded Solutions. Said simply….swag. From writing instruments to calendars, drinkware to apparel, tech products to bags, her tag line, “Where Ann Makes the Difference” is evident with each project.

As an expert in promotional products and apparel, Ann will search out the best products for her clients and their businesses. With a background in graphic design, Ann uses her creativity to provide ideas on how her clients can effectively use their products, asks questions to learn more about her clients and their business needs; and makes thoughtful recommendations based up on their conversations. She works with a wide variety of organizations, including but not limited to: associations/nonprofits, realtors, the trades, healthcare, private schools, gov’t contractors, fitness facilities, financial and designers.

Ann prides herself in being a resource for her clients. In comparison to her competitors, such as 4Imprint which promotes thousands of products, Ann has access to millions of products while offering a personal touch to her service. “I most enjoy the creative end…coming up with that perfect item for a particular client. The very best part of my day is when a client contacts me and is overjoyed about the product, their experience with me, and the positive results that the item created for them and their business. That’s pure gold!”

When it came to working with Intelligent Office of Alexandria, Ann found our staff easy to work with and our services fast, accurate, and affordable. Additionally, she was impressed by the technology that we use and the demonstration that was done by our staff. “When you combine that with the stellar personnel, IO is extraordinary. I recently heard that you performed a membership reach-out to thousands…it blew me away!” We are proud to work with Ann and to provide her with superior administrative services, including data entry and email organization.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, we asked Ann what she is most thankful for this year and her answer was very pertinent to these uncertain times. “I’m thankful for the resiliency of humanity, and for the fact that each of us has a choice for how we live every day. It’s all about attitude and the ability to be resilient.” We couldn’t agree with her more. In conclusion, Ann shared with us one of her favorite quotes, which we hope will bring clarity and peace of mind:

“The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so, it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.” ? Charles Swindoll
