Make a Little Noise
When a Canadian telecommunications company needed a buzz-worthy promotional product for its annual cross-country bike ride for charity, the firm turned to MAO Créateur D’Impact (asi/260752) for ideas. Co-owner Amélie Huard suggested the inflatable polyester Thunder Stick Noise Maker (product LPP14) from PromoSalesUSA.com (asi/79994) as an item to distribute to fans lining the race and waiting at the finish line. The client jumped on board.
MAO Créateur D’Impact imprinted the PMS color-matched Thunder Stick pairs with the telecommunications company’s tagline, and ordered a large quantity from PromoSalesUSA.com so the items could be distributed across the country. “They really created a buzz when the cyclists arrived at the various finish lines,” says Huard. “We chose this item because it made a loud thunder-like noise so everyone noticed it. Plus, it featured a big logo that everyone could see.”
MAO Créateur D’Impact distributed 50,000 pieces all over Canada; total sales volume was about $20,000. “Thunder sticks are ideal for all sports events, both amateur and professional, including soccer tournaments, hockey games, football games and marathons,” says Huard. “Also consider concerts and even conferences that feature musicians and speakers who want to get the crowd excited. They’re great for creating a buzz around something. It’s like applauding but a lot louder!” Other possible campaigns into which thunder sticks can figure include rallies, charity events and company team-building outings.
