NENCDirect.com and NENC Printing offers local business an affordable alternative for reaching their local customers, with direct mail, internet, and traditional print media.
Owner, John Snowden, of Maple puts 20 years of marketing experience coupled and over 25 years of internet development experience to work for local businesses of all sizes.
After performing database driven web site development for agricultural, higher education, entertainment, manufacturing, media, and medical fields, Snowden established "The Independent" newspaper which served all of Currituck and Camden County with 6,000 broadsheet copies published weekly from January 2002 through June 2009.
“I started with a simple concept – a small town newspaper serving the citizens and businesses of Camden and Currituck Counties. My experience with the newspaper, gave me tremendous insight into the struggles of local small business trying to reach their customers”, Snowden noted.
The economic downturn which began in 2009, severely affected advertising revenue for the newspaper. So Snowden returned to his root accepting a web database developer position at Hampton University and later at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
This new role did not diminish Snowden’s desire to help local business, as he continued to perform web, printing and marketing consulting for local businesses and political candidates.
“Recently, I was approached by several small business owners asking about direct mail”, Snowden stated. From there he investigated the options and came up with the product which he called “NENCDirect”.
“Imagine a mail piece with a business advertisement, which is then tied into a website where the ad space is unlimited”, Snowden marveled. “We can offer a full color business card sized advertisement placed directly in every home in our area, for about 3 cents per impression.”
“By comparison – 1,000 full colored business cards cost about $40 – or 4 cents per impression. You cannot print business cards and get them in every household for a better price.”
Through his printing business – NENC Printing – Snowden also provides a full line of print goods, including: business cards, post cards, door hangers, rack cards, brochures, posters, yard signs, bumper stickers, letterhead, envelopes, labels and more.
Also available from NENC Printing are embossers, self inking rubber stamps, engraved name plates, badges, tshirts, and signs up to 4 feet by 8 feet in dimension.
“My father John Snowden, Jr. was one of the first sign painters in the area – even before Ambrose Signs and Lamar entered the market.”
According to Snowden, his father hand painted every sign in his garage, and also performed screen printing – at one time having been responsible for lettering and numbering Currituck County School buses.
“My degree is in Mathematics with a Computer Science concentration – my creativity comes from my parents. Before Dad passed away, he was amazed at the artwork and design which could be performed with a computer.”
