B-Impressed Promotional Products had its humble beginnings in 1994. What started with a woman and a dream inside her garage, flourished to a branding solutions company that provides marketing services to all industries. In 2006, Paul Wilcox made the jump from Corporate America to Entrepreneur and became the proud owner of B-Impressed and hit the ground running!
Paul was able to use his knowledge and skills to grow the business through social media avenues which included a new and improved website and a B-Impressed Facebook page. During the recession, Paul saw an increase in new small businesses. He focused on this niche market and helped entrepreneurs with strategic marketing and cost effective planning. Paul’s expertise in products increased their ROI.
It was only a matter of time before B-Impressed outgrew their old location in Salinas. Through patience and perseverance, Paul found the perfect location, right in the heart of Oldtown Salinas! The jump from an 1,100 square foot showroom to the beautiful 3,000 square foot showroom was just what they needed. Now they neighbor a few of the largest agriculture companies, along with local retail shops and restaurants. This location has proven to be an asset to the community and the B-Impressed brand.
With the increase in business, Paul began to explore the idea of bringing on a partner. Paul’s path crossed with Anne Millette in 2015 and it became clear that Anne was a perfect fit for the future of the company. Anne’s expertise in Business Development, Sales and Customer Service, and Meeting Planning is a great compliment to Paul’s Accounting, Finance and business savvy.
Together, Paul and Anne have since rebranded to B-Impressed Branding Solutions. They have established a mission to, “Be your branding partner, guiding you through a personal customer experience with creative ideas and trust, while keeping your best interests at heart!”
