Master the Game
The Pitch: If you have a golf-related event coming up and you’re searching for the perfect product, BCG Creations (asi/37693) offers the PutterWheel. It’s an innovative putting aid that helps golfers improve line of sight and setup and it provides instant feedback on mis-hits. You can check out video demos and read rave reviews about it here:
The Bottom Line: Swing like a champ.

Hit the Right Chord
The Pitch: Is there a rock star on your agenda? Check out the 18-oz. coffee mug with guitar-shaped handle from Xpres (asi/52475). You can get it for as low as $7.45-R. Pitch it to music schools, retailers that sell instruments, concert promoters, radio stations and any promotions you want to hit a high note.  We have a great article on music-related promos in the April issue of Advantages magazine, by the way. If I do say so myself. You should sit down and read it with your lunch. Click here to check out the mug:
The Bottom Line: Rock your revenue.

Dog Days
The Pitch: Last week, we had a doggie photo shoot for our sister publication Wearables magazine. Also, last week, we put our May issue to bed and it includes an article on pet-related promotions. In our April issue, if you haven’t seen it yet, we also featured a pet fair in our “Sell This Program” section. Yes, folks, pets are big, huge business. And this product from Promopet (asi/79698) is pretty darn clever. It’s a pet waste bag dispenser with a built-in flashlight. It’s perfect for nighttime walks. You can get it for as low as $3-C. Check it out:
The Bottom Line: Take a long walk.

Spring Fling
The Pitch: Love these Petal Pusher buttons from American Greenwood (asi/35500). (Cute name, too.) They have a pin on the back like conventional buttons that you wear, but they are seeded, so after wearing them, they can be planted to grow flowers. Is that unique or what? Pitch these for awareness walks, eco-friendly events, summer camps and more. Pricing starts at: 125; $1.15-R. See them here:
The Bottom Line: Plant one on me.
