Having a Hard Time Understanding Your Younger Customer

Let’s Face It! The average age of Promo Distributors according to ASI is 57. No wonder you are struggling to understand your younger buyer. The dreaded Millenial!

I have been in this business for nearly 25 years so I am not a millenial. However, I have Millenial kids and and have a very young innovative approach to the promo business.

In regards to Millenials and promo there are a few earth-shaking changes that us older promo people need to consider.

  1. Millenials want something new. Millenials are not going to repeat their pen order with the same logo and same pen for the next 10 years. You better get used to this idea because if you rely on repeats year after year you are out of luck.
  2. Millenials do not want what they predecessor bought. Even if what the predecessor bought worked, the Millenial will not keep on doing it. Best to stop trying to push them in this direction.
  3. Millenials want what is happening at retail for promo. Fidget Cubes, Popsockets, Fidget Spinners are all great examples of retail trends for promo. If you are not on-trend you will get crushed.

We Do It Differently, “We Do Weird Well!”

We specialize in the unique and the unusual, the trending and the social media savvy……in short we know what Millenials want. Don’t believe me? You sure you want to take that risk?

Here is what is trending. NOW! Call 888-908-1481 for info or email me John

Most Tradeshow Swag is a waste of money as Most Tradeshow marketers are Totally Clueless.

Tradeshow swag often gets a bad rap as being ineffective or cheesy. The problem is that most people have no clue how to properly use Swag to promote business.

Custom Trade Show Giveaways

The most effective tradeshow giveaways are those that do the following 3 things.

  • Catch the clients’ visual attention at the show. If you give someone a pen as an incentive to visit your booth they will not be interested. No one needs another pen and certainly no one needs a crappy, ink-leaking pen. The same goes for other items like T shirts, key chains etc. If you are giving away boring you will be perceived as being boring.

  • Weird Works. Even though Fidget Spinners are now on the downside of their popularity, when they first came out they rocked. Why.? Because people attending tradeshows in the spring of 2017 had heard of spinners but had not seen them or used one. Having spinners at your booth caught the attention of clients who would come directly to your booth to get one and in that moment, allow you to make a connection with a new/possible client.

  • The Swag Must Travel Well. All tradeshows have a high percentage of attendees who travel to the show. The last thing they want or will keep is something big and bulky or breakable. Coffee Mugs break, Binders get tossed for being too bulky. The result is that these types of SWAG are either put in the circular file or arrive home broken.

“If you are giving away boring you will be perceived as being boring.”

In late 2017 and early 2018 the best and most effective of today’s tradeshow swag is found under the following categories:

EDC Tools: EDC or Everyday Carry is a trending catchphrase for pocket tools and multi tool. These tools are now more TSA friendly and the millennials have never had their own set of tools. This generation raised in a digital world are found wanting to have an analog touchstone. These tools are the same psychological graphic that explains why Millennials want turntables.   

Fidget Swag: Fidget cubes, fidget spinners and Fidget gadgets are all great one size fits all marketing tool. Inexpensive and endlessly entertaining to those who leave the tradeshow and head for the bar afterwards.
