THINK Limitless Promotional Products We are a long way away before this becomes a possibility. Once they do hit the mainstream, I’m unsure if there will be enough “real estate” on the devices to show off much branding. Soon wearables like these will become too helpful for people not to adopt them. Once this happens, the flood gates will break open. How do you jumpstart sales during the summer?

Amanda Vories Summer is the best time for bundling promotions, since so many involve outdoor events. A towel and beach bag, a water bottle with a sun care kit, etc; all are great opportunities to create added value to a promotion.

Erich Campbell With so many events going on, this is also a great time to use sponsorship as your own self-promotion vehicle; sometimes for as little as a small discount you can add your own logo/slogan to event items and increase your visibility.
