Who knew Funeral Directors were this much fun?

Funeral Directors get a Casket shaped flash drive for their annual convention.

Custom casket flash drive, just don’t call it a coffin.

Lately I have had 3 or 4 inquiries and a couple of orders for a casket shaped flash drive. As I am able to do, I stuck my foot firmly in the mouth each time I fielded an inquiry as I referred to it as a “coffin shaped flash drive”.

I was told by each inquiry that “we don’t use the word coffin anymore and prefer casket or funerary, it is more sensitive!”

The Funeral Directors who was making the inquiry then went on to regale me with a few ribald stories of what happens at the convention. The assured me that behind closed doors or on their downtime they were fun loving folk who definitely did not deserve the reputation of being morose.

I was told by each inquiry that “we don’t use the word coffin anymore and prefer casket or funerary, it is more sensitive!”

I learned lots about the funeral business and the way they market their services to one another. I also learned, never call it a coffin, its a casket!”

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 6 months, you have seen in news from around the world that all types of 1 time use plastics are being banned.

In fact, major cities including Seattle and Vancouver have outlawed plastic drinking straws altogether making their use an illegal offence!

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 are not all about the function of it, but about the emotional appeal!”

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 contains 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 remaining undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries across the world banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.

What is a Tactical Flashlight?

A tactical flashlight can be an important tool in your everyday carry toolbox, but doing a quick Google search for the best tactical flashlights won’t do you much good if you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for in the first place.

Depending on what you do for a living or what you require from your gear, flashlights that are too small may not be bright enough if you work in security, law enforcement, or in consistently dark environments, and won’t help much in the way of self defense. In contrast, tactical flashlights on the larger side won’t be as EDC-friendly as their smaller counterparts and will be much more difficult to carry in your pocket.

The best tactical flashlight not only sheds plenty of light on a dark situation, but it also provides plenty of functionality, is built like a tank, and can provide a valuable means of self defense in a situation that surely requires it. Whatever your candlepower requirements, and no matter your budget, I’m sure you’ll find a suitable tactical flashlight on this list that not only meets your EDC needs, but also your tactical objectives.

Get Your Logo on it for Less. Factory Direct Promotional Products for Less.

Promotional product professionals deserve a break. They deserve to make more money for all of the effort they put into their difficult work.

The business of selling and delivering customized promotional products often takes a bad rap but what is more problematic is that distributors are often doing it for very little profit.

ASI Distributors often deal with overly demanding clients and rush orders with unreasonable timelines. All of this would be fine if their profit was worth it but often they will do all of this work for very little in return.

“We believe that distributors deserve to make more than a lousy ‘C’!”

sex promotional products tradeshow and marketing ideas

The First Time I has Sex I was Afraid….

The First Time I has Sex I was Afraid….The Reason Was Because I was Alone…..and in the Dark!

It’s an old joke but one that never fails to catch peoples attention. In the business of promotional product marketing isn’t it all about catching someones attention?

So…why did you open this email?

The answers are simple…..

  1. It created curiosity? You wanted to know what the rest of the statement said.
  2. It was “outside of the box”. It did not say something like “new and improved” or “cheaper than the other guys”. You would not have opened the email if it had said this.

Promotional Marketing

In the world of Promotional Products there are 2 kinds of ideas…..

  1. The kind of promo that everyone does.
  2. The kind of promo that everyone should do but doesn’t do.

The kind of promo that everyone does!

If you’re a professional marketer and you are still promoting the idea of getting a logo on a Pen, T-shirt or Mug you belong to the first group , the kind of promo that everyone does.

If you belong to this group that is ok but, don’t expect higher than usual results, recipients of the promo to go “AWESOME!”  or the boss to say….”You are brilliant!

Nope…if you belong to the group the kind of promo that everyone does you will not be remembered.

 

On the other hand…If you are a professional marketer and look for ideas that set you apart then you likely belong to the group of idea gurus who markets with the kind of promo that everyone should do but doesn’t do.

This group tends to look for new ideas, retail trends that are now working their way into promo and promotional products that make people take a second look…...just like you did when you opened this email!

2018 Top New Trending Ideas for Promo!

Below are what we believe are ideas that will set you apart in 2018. For further info call us at 888-908-1481 or email us.
