    We have had our MAS for just over 5 years and have noticed a sharp decline in sales from this particular contrac since January 2011.  We have a link on our company website to the GSA Advantage! site in the hopes that various gov't purchasing agents will utilize it but this doesn't seem to be happening.  Does anyone have any suggestions of ways we can market our MAS to help increase sales? Thanks! Evan Force, ServCorp Inc.

    The use of artificial flowers and trees are increasing at a rapid rate these days as these are much more beneficial then the real trees and flowers. As with the help of these artificial trees and flowers home owners and developers have been successful in preparing an everlasting look of the trees and flowers for their offices and home. It is often observed that some people have asthma or are allergic to real flowers or some specific trees therefore for these individual artificial trees are considered best and safe process.
