Tiffany the Jeweler gets a custom flash drive designed.

New York’s Iconic Jeweler, Tiffany’s Commissions Custom Flash Drive.

Tiffany combines tech and bling in their custom flash drive.

Iconic NY jeweler Tiffany’s has commissioned us to design and produce a 16 GB flash drive that is in keeping with their high brand standards and brand identity.

To be used in both retail and online settings along with use as a customer loyalty piece this highly chromed, deeply etched and laser engraved metal custom flash drive is both weighty and rich in elegant details.

“The work on this piece was painstaking but the results were well worth it!”

“The design, simple to look at, required a huge amount of attention to detail. The kerning of each letter and symbol required microscopic measurements. We  enjoyed the challenge of this work and despite the fact it took twice as long as a normal order to produce the results are well worth it” states John Graham.

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!”

New Ideas are the Lifeblood of the Promo Industry

NEW Promo Ideas! Don’t Run Away!

New ideas are the lifeblood of the promotional products industry. End-users from all over the country are looking for new ideas from their distributors and Promo Motive is the SUPPLIER of these new ideas to Distributors.

In every business it easy to get in a rut. However, if you are a promo Distributor, getting in a product rut is a very bad idea. It is very common for Distributors to continue to go to the same old Supplier well and promote the same old Supplier ideas. Promo Motive is a supplier who does it differently. We concentrate on NEW ideas ONLY!

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!”

set ups are a scam

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.

How to sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw: Last 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 sell on the folding straw is not about the function of it, it’s 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 has disturbing images. 

Second Point:

After over 30 million views of this 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.

Read about cities and companies banning straws.

Seattle bans straw…read more...
Vancouver bans Straws…read more...
McDonalds Bans Plastic Straws…read more…
Huge 1000 location Bon Appetite bans straws…read more…
Alaska Airlines Bans Straws…. read more…

Third Point:

It’s not about why would you pay $10 for a straw, but more importantly it’s about what it says about a brand to have their logo on a folding reusable drinking straw. Your client’s logo on a LAST STRAW says that the client cares about the environment, is on top of the latest trends (meaning they are “in touch”) and lastly, but not least, they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem and being a part of the solution.
