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.

Where Did This Idea Come From?

The idea for the reusable folding drinking straw came about as a result of a video captured by environmentalists and scientists operating out of Costa Rica in late 2017. Seen by over 30 million people, this video has instigated the ban of plastic straws around the world. If you want to watch the video be prepared to be heartbroken by the images.

“Promo experts predict the Last Straw folding drinking straw will be the hula hoop for 2019!”

The promo industry has long been the place for businesses both big and small to seek out new products and ideas to slap their logo on. The 27 Billion dollar industry is often thought of as being somewhat slow to embrace new ideas despite their mantra of being innovative. However, it seems that when it comes to the folding reusable straw they are way ahead of the curve.

What caused the big stir about folding drinking straws?

Basically two disparate but simultaneous events started the ball rolling on the foldable, reusable drinking straw.

The first was the Turtle Video. This haunting and emotion evoking video shows a plastic disposable drinking straw being yanked out of its nose for almost 10 excruciating minutes!

The second was the Final Straw Kickstarter campaign!

Final Straw came out with a version of the folding straw that raised 38443 backers who each paid between $20-$30 for a single folding straw. The total pledged was $1,894,878 to help bring this project to life. Originally they sought about 1000 or so backers. Obviously they’ve exceeded their wildest dreams!

Promo Motive has created their own version of this folding straw which will be available August 1.

Promo supplier Promo Motive, the supplier that “Does Weird Well!” is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the logoable collapsible stainless steel straw, scheduled for August 1st with a distributor retail price C of between $7-$8.50 at MOQ.

Woman arrested for illegal use of plastic drinking straw!

U.K. woman arrested for illegal use of plastic drinking straw!

Unthinkable scenario seems more and more likely as countries, states and cities move enmasse to ban disposable plastic straws.

The disposable plastic straw has come to an end in many marketplaces faster than anyone anticipated. A lot of this is due to 2 things happening independently of each other but both interlocking.

 

“Using plastic disposable is already illegal to use in over 400 cities, counties and states worldwide, can imprisonment for its use be far behind?”

The Turtle with the straw in its nose video.

This heartwrenching video made by an intrepid group of eco warriors brought home the point that even our most cherished wildlife is endangered by our addiction to unnecessary plastics. In the video it shows the Turtle rescuers pulling out a foot long plastic straw that has been embedded in the Turtles nostril!

The invention of the folding eco-friendly stainless steel straw.

Spurred on by companies such as Final Straw and Last Straw a new way to think of a drinking straw has emerged. The idea of a folding, key chain, collapsing stainless steel straw is going viral. Made from bacteria resistant stainless steel and bacteria resistant food grade silicone, the folding drinking straw works as a long term solution. Instead of throwaway one-time use straws the user can carry around this reusable and recyclable folding steel straw.

The $27 Billion dollar Promotional Products industry seizes upon the idea!

The ASI promotional products industry has seized upon the folding straw product as a trend-setting product perfect for the world-wide b2b consumer base. Starting in the fall of 2018 a number of leading suppliers including Promo Motive will be launching their own versions of the folding collapsible straw.

Tactical Mini Flashlight Breaks Price Barrier

Tactical Mini Flashlight Breaks Price Barrier

High powered tactical flashlight is now priced ready for the promotional products market.

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.

Want info? Call 1-888-908-1481 or email john@promocrunch.com.

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’!”

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.
