We believe that only using ASI or PPAI search for your business is a bad idea.
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!”
What do YOU think?
Does this make sense to you? Is this intriguing? Is this an idea you want to explore? Join the many hundreds of other innovative forward thinking Distributors who are looking for something different.

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

How to sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw.

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

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.

The folding reusable drinking straw has caught on like wildfire in the promo swag world!
The folding reusable drinking straw called the LAST STRAW has set new records for inquiries and sales in the promotional product world.
It seems that the promo and b2b marketing worlds are ready to embrace the eco alternative to the 1 time use plastic drinking straw. The best alternative for a folding reusable straw to get a logo on is Promo Motive‘s Last Straw.
Promotional Distributors from across the globe are flocking to this product for their clients’ logo to be put on. Corporate logos from Starbucks to Toyota and across the spectrum are embracing the folding straw as the next big thing.
This is likely a result of several major developments in cities and countries across the globe, many of which are now banning all plastic drinking straws. Cities such as Seattle and Vancouver have outright stopped the use of all 1 time plastics. This means businesses who give away straws are scrambling to replace them with the reusable folding straw.

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.
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!”
