New promotional product ideas for Fall 2018 unveiled

New Promotional Product ideas for Fall of 2018 are now unveiled!

The promo industry thrives on new ideas. Here are 5 new ones set to rock the promo world.

Promotional products (aka Swag) is a 27 Billion US dollar industry currently going through a major sea change, metamorphing from a catalog based, slow moving print and promotions business to now a primarily web-based business working on short retail type cycles with ideas rapidly coming on scene and almost just as fast, vanishing.

New promotional product ideas for 2018

 

Distributors. Do you feel out of touch with your client, stuck?

This is a pretty common feeling amongst distributors and not without good reason. The average ASI distributor is 57 years old while the average end user buyer is 35. This has come as a result of ASI not doing a good enough job recruiting new people into the industry and at the same time millenials are moving into business in ever increasing numbers.

“By 2025 50% of the US workforce will be occupied by the millenials while the average age of ASI distributors will be 59-62. No wonder distributors feel lost!”

Promo Motive is bucking the trend from other legacy suppliers by bringing you newly emerging trends and innovative promotional ideas. Here are what we see as the top 5 for Fall 2018. For samples, prices and imprint info call us at 1-888-908-1481 or email John@promocrunch.com.

#1 for Fall 2018 is the Collapsible Last Straw: the Last Straw you will ever need.

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’!”

Why do distributors pay these ridiculous fees?

Why in this day and age are you paying set up fees, run charges, fax proofs, virtual proofs, shipping fees etc? Are you nuts?

inexpensive promotional products

inexpensive promotional products

Why are you paying set up fees, run charges, fax proofs, virtual proofs, shipping fees etc? Are you nuts?

In this day and age suppliers who charge these ridiculous costs are out of touch with their clients. It’s 2018 and the online experience has come to the Promotional Products world. Customers HATE extra charges and will search out other suppliers who do not do these things.

“The reason suppliers have these add-ons is simple GREED! They hook distributors into the sale with a low price and then by the time the distributor is at the “checkout” the price is as much as 30% higher! Why?”

Suppliers who charge these fees do so because they believe there clients are that dumb! As a supplier I know it does not cost me $6 for a virtual proof, it costs me about 30 cents. If I cannot “eat” that 30 cents then I have no business being in business.

I can only believe that the reason suppliers charge these outlandish fees is that they believe that a super-low price on the product will be seen as the best idea and that the extra costs will be passed on to the end user without complaint! Really…you think the end-user is not angry with these costs.

End User Revolt!

I can tell you this as a fact. End users are going online to avaoid paying these ridiculous fees they get charged by the distributor who is in turn given these costs from the supplier. Get smart, stop paying them and come to www.PromoMotive.com

Overpaying Problem #1

Inventory in a big Stateside warehouse is a bad idea! The old days when buying in bulk from China and shipping to a central US warehouse make no sense any more. Here are the reasons.

A) Clients want fresh ideas. Buyers are less and less ordering repeats of the old tried and trues! The days when people ordered the same T-shirt/Mug and got the same imprint on them each April ARE MOSTLY OVER! With this fact in mind the idea that the best way to buy both on price and innovation is to buy from some giant warehouse is simply wrong. The reason are complex but I will try to explain.

B) If clients want new ideas all the time (which they do) then the old style swag (ie pens/mugs/T’s) sits on the warehouse shelf unsold. Ask yourself this…How many Fidget Spinners are on suppliers shelves NOT SELLING? 

C) When a slow selling inventory product goes unsold the cost of that unsold inventory gets placed upon more popular selling items. In short the best sellers carry additional costs to off-set the cost of slow sellers.

D) if you are buying from the same place as everyone else then you are selling at the same price as everyone else. If true, what is your competitive advantage? If you want to create a sale that stops your client from either shopping online or bidding you out, stop selling the same old thing as everyone else!

Your Mother was right!

Nagging!

Nobody likes it but apparently if you want results, it works!

In the world of marketing, promotional products and business 2 business (b2b), it turns out your Mother was right.

Nagging works.

It seems that people are so inundated with passive messaging that they are overwhelmed and find themselves unable to make a decision.

However, when that same message was “nagged” if you will, the response rate was nearly double!

In the current marketing milleu it is more common to “passively wait” for the client to make a decision. Apparently this is WRONG.

So, in short, if you want sales, a decison or movement on an idea or promotion, you need to nag a little more…….so the answer is…

Your mother was right!

NOW….How can we now help you to build your brand?

Flash Drive Prices Heading Down

In the wake of unprecedented upticks in pricing it seems that the trend to rising prices is now reversing. Feb 21, 2017, prices are heading back down.

They may not go down to the historic lows they once were but it seems the worst is over.

To read why prices change read our previous post http://promocrunch.com/why-flash-drive-prices-change/
