Why ASI is bad for your business

We believe that only using ASI or PPAI search for your business is a bad idea.

Here’s why!

We have been a supplier for 20 years and there are some secrets about ASI that most distributors don’t know. It is important to know so you can make more sales and make more money.

Here are a few key things you need to be aware of.

#1 – When you see ANY search result it is PAID to be placed there by the supplier

When using product searches on ASI or PPAI you may not be seeing the best, most popular or most innovative products at all. You are simply seeing what was paid to be seen!

Suppliers pay on average 60K a year for product placement. A few years ago I bought half of 1 day a week’s banner. It cost $1500 PER DAY!

#2 – The average age of end users is 35 while the average ASI distributor age is 57

There is a disconnect in the age gap that is most apparent if Distributors ONLY use ASI and PPAI search.

As a supplier, every day I get inquiries from Distributors looking for “something their client found online!” The end user wants something unique and unusual. They don’t always want the same thing, again… and again. You need to look elsewhere!

#3 – If you only use ASI and PPAI search, what advantage do you have over your competitor?

It may seem obvious, but if you and the Distributor down the street get the same inquiry for the same general product what advantage do you have? Isn’t it then only down to price?

In the internet age, Distributors need an advantage to beat out their biggest competitor: the end user!

If you keep presenting the same old ideas as your competitor down the street you will continue to encourage the end user (remember they are 35 and web-savvy) to buy online and NOT from you.

Who is the IDIOT that paid $35 for a folding drinking straw?

Who is the IDIOT that paid $35 for a folding drinking straw?

That idiot would be me!

There are a few folding reusable stainless steel drinking straws on the market including LAST STRAW, the stainless steel, food-safe, collapsible, reusable straw specifically designed for the promotional products distributor.

We decided to test all of them… including this one… which came in at an astounding $34.50 for ONE SINGLE STRAW ($14.50 for shipping!). The delivery of my single $35 straw is not expected until NOVEMBER!

We are the Factory and the Supplier. We ONLY sell to DISTRIBUTORS! We know what we are doing!

We only deal with distributors and have for years. We know what we are doing and we know what you need!

We do work a little differently.

We have people on the ground in the factories in China and they dig around looking for the best products (not the cheapest) that can be delivered quickly, have great logo capabilities and are tested and meet all safety standards. Often they are from the same factory where the brand name one is being made. Are we smarter? Nope… (after all, we did buy a $35 straw!). It’s just that we source and buy a whole lot smarter!

We have built a business model based on sourcing and selling the trends, bringing in everything by air in as little as a week and reducing costs so we can pass savings on to you, the distributor. As we like to say:
