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.

“It’s time to think differently!”

How to Sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw

If you think that selling a $5 net drinking straw is a tough sell think again!

In fact there are folding straws on the market that sell for $30 or more… Check out this Kickstarter program that sold over 80,000 units at $30 a piece!

“The selling points on the folding straw is not all about the function of it, it’s about the emotional appeal of it!”

First point:

This all started with a Turtle video. The storyline is simple: ecologists and scientists working in Costa Rica come across a Turtle in distress. They pull it aboard and find a plastic straw stuck in its nose. WARNING: Video has disturbing images. 

Second Point:

After over 30 million views of the video and a greater understanding of how billions of plastic straws were ending up in the oceans and staying undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.

Third Point:

It’s not about why would anyone pay $10 for a straw, but more importantly it’s about what it says about a brand to have their logo on a folding reuseable drinking straw.

Your client’s logo on a LAST STRAW says to the world that the client cares about the environment, is on top of the latest trends and lastly, but not least, they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem and being a part of the solution!

Some Distributors say that “No One Will Use It!”

These distributors may be sort of right but at the same time COMPLETELY WRONG! Many people may not use it but millions will buy it!

The Last Straw folding reusable drinking straw will be a massive marketing statement for your clients. It will say to the world that they are an eco-friendly, trend-setting company. Who wouldn’t want to be this?

McDonalds and Starbucks move to ban plastic straws, transition to reusable

The trend to ban plastic straws continues its worldwide movement as both Starbucks and McDonalds ban plastic straws.

Disposable plastic straws continue to be the poster child for everything bad in the world of non-recyclable plastics and major corporations are taking notice.

As is often the case, major corporations start at the edges of their business empires and then quickly move towards the center. Today both McDonald’s and Starbucks of India banned the use of all disposable plastics including drinking straws.

This ban comes amidst an ever-increasing chorus of bans from cities, states and countries banning the disposable plastic straw. This ban includes Seattle, Vancouver and over 500 other cities.

What started all of this, a Turtle Video?

Yes…24 million views of the video below showing a sea turtle having a disposable plastic straw wrenched from its nostril (where it had become embedded in its sinus and throat) has prompted a worldwide backlash against the disposable straw and given rise to the folding stainless steel drinking straw.

The disposable plastic straw is now being banned worldwide. Seattle bans plastic straws.

 

The Promotional Products market gets in early on the trend.

Often the promotional products market is slow to adopt new ideas but the folding reusable straw is out of the gate and available for corporate promotions as of August 1, 2018. Get it here first.
