The Joe Show: Get Outdoors
In this episode of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley shows off some new products perfect for the outdoors. As golf tournament season gets into full swing, how about a look at an innovative item designed to help golfers warm up before hitting the links? Check it out in this episode.
Crabby Thinking The Pitch: Last week we went out for all-you-can-eat crab legs (which I love, yum!). All I can eat is one helping, but they were delicious. I could have used this product fromAd-Bib (asi/30132):A printed custom label (up to full color) is adhered onto an individually packaged moist towelette.The supplier suggests coordinating the custom label imprint with bibs, seafood mallets, crackers, and other dinner accessories for additional sales. The one they are showing on ESP says "claws for celebration." Isn't that clever? Pricing starts at a mere one for 45 cents-R. Seafood restaurants are your obvious target. But also think about company picnics, family reunions and other special events. Check it out: www.printing-promotions.com. The Bottom Line: Get crackin'.
Drive Time The Pitch: I had a bit of road rage this morning when a car passed me and cut in front of me, because apparently I was going way too slow at 60 mph in a 55-mph zone. Jerk! I can't write what I really said.Factory Direct Line LLC (asi/53504) has a product that would come in handy for such situations:a car-shaped stress-reliever key holder. Think of this for driving schools, auto dealers, insurance companies and more. Pricing starts at: 100; 99 cents-R. Check it out: www.factorydirectline.com. The Bottom Line: Squeeze out a sale.
Bright Idea The Pitch: Just in time for summer travel promotions,Acryliglo (asi/30985) has a very cool luggage tag made from durable radiant fluorescent acrylic. The laser-cut edges actually appear to glow when illuminated by light, creating a neon effect. Each tag includes a removable business-size identification card which slips into a vinyl pocket. Pricing starts at:25; $6-R. You can see it here: www.acryliglo.com. The Bottom Line: Tag, you're it.
Road Trip The Pitch: Here's a great product fromNational Geographic Society (asi/73383): An illustrated hardcover travel planner and gift book titled "Drives of a Lifetime: Where to Go, Why to Go, When to Go." It provides all the info anyone will need to navigate 400 awesome routes. It's really the perfect choice for auto dealers, tourism boards and all adventurous spirits. Pricing starts at:50; $36.66-R. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Nat Geo'd.
