Eight years ago, we received an email requesting more information about our book publishing services, which at that time were not limited to corporate publishing. We were excited when we received the email a little more than usual because if this client signed with our company within two weeks, it meant that we would reach our sales goal for the year. Something that we had not done in the three years prior.
A couple days later, we received the email response. The customer wanted our top tier book publishing package and was ready to process their deposit. Our team was so excited. We danced and laughed and celebrated with VOSS Water, Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Faygo 60/40 and Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn. Oh, happy day!
About thirty minutes later the docs were printed and sent for processing and review. Within five minutes we heard a loud sigh of agony coming from our acquisitions manager.
LONG STORY SHORT
The customer wanted to produce of line of erotica books that featured teens (Insert tire screeching here). We were all appalled that the person thought that we were a company that produced and promoted such material. Needless to say, we quickly declined, tore up the contracts and contemplated calling the police.
That moment forced our team to clearly define who we are as a company and who we work with in everything we do. ADEI Media is a company that has an intense desire to make the lives of others better. We know it’s not sexy, but it has forced us to look at who we want to be when we grow up.
After several metamorphosis ADEI Media has grown into a company that finds a great deal of satisfaction and excitement when we help health care providers, organizations and charities increase efficiency, awareness, and revenue. By using our collective expertise to create books, videos, audio presentations, and mobile technology to achieve these goals.
We are not shy or vague about our particular brand of services. We help those who help others…and everything we do is to that end.
Every business, practice and person has to come to the same moment. Now that you know what defines us, we’d like to know…have you discovered what defines you?
