A scented candle appeals to your sense of smell
A chocolate bar molded in the shape of your company logo appeals to your sense of taste
A musical CD that has your logo on the case appeals to your sense of hearing
A pen that has a barrel that lights up appeals to your sense of sight
A soft leather mouse pad appeals to your sense of touch
No other advertising medium can do this. When was the last time that you said "Thank You" after viewing or hearing a commercial?

Do you want to drive business to your website, offer a free gift card.
Do you want to drive business to your booth at a trade show, do a direct mail gift vouchure to all of the attendees 2 weeks before the show starts.
Do you want to reduce accidents in your company, set up a safety program with gifts and awards and a nice party at the end of the calendar year for everyone that is accident free for the year.
FREE is KEY to helping you achieve success!

You run this program during the second half of 2009 and any referral that you receive that results in an order or a new client you give some kind of a reward to the giver. The more clients they bring in the better the reward. It is amazing what people will do to win points or a free gift.
A supplier of mine was running an incentive campaign and I ended up winning a new digital camera and a golf bag. It worked on me and I'm sure it could on your clients. At the end of the campaign you can see how many new clients you have and how much money you spent on advertising the campaign and the rewards. You can then MEASURE the results!!

You can ask the personal assistant to help you with anything such as driving directions, traffic/road conditions, price comparisons, movie times and dozens of other applications. The assistant that answers the call will address the caller by name and deliver a customized script such as "Hello Ms. Williams. Thank you for calling (YOUR COMPANY NAME) personal assistant. This is Amanda, how may i assist you?"
The card can be customized with your artwork on both sides. Being the size of a credit card, it fits conveniently in your wallet so you can use it anytime, anywhere.

The hot (or I should say cool) material the last couple of years have been the shirts that contain the new moisture management material that wicks moisture away from the shirt. When the temperature is as high as your golf score these shirts really are great. They help to keep you cool and looking cool as well. I highly recommend them and when the humidity is high you will be saying "Thank You Peter" . . . . I guarantee it!
Go to http://www.companycasuals.com/PROMOTIONSASAP/b.jsp?id=991632&parentId=115
and check out some of the shirts that are marked "Dro Zone" or "Rapid Dry" or "Dry Fit".

Many suppliers have rush capabilities. A few of my favorites are www.bicgraphic.com, www.leedsworld.com, www.keystoneline.com, www.logomark.com to name a few.
The sooner you can start the process of discussing your goals and when you need the product in hand the better. Start 6 months out and we have access to most suppliers in the world, 1 month out and most in the USA, 1 week out and now we have narrowed the field dramatically.
If you need the product somewhere other than your office it is a good idea to save time and money ship the product to the event site instead of shipping to your office and then shipping to the event site or taking them with you.

You cannot take a jpg file, copy it to the clipboard, paste it into a page in say Adobe Illustrator and save it as an eps or ai file type. It is still a jpg file and this is low resolution and is not able to be reduced or enlarged to the available imprint area on the item. jpg files are great for websites but not great for use with promotional products.
I believe that promotional products are a great tool that can help with marketing, advertising and meeting planning to name a few.
Stay tuned or I should say tune in and I will try to cover various topics and products and I would love to have you ask questions or make suggestions for topics that you would like me to cover.
