Have you overcome a big sales challenge? Have you gotten a sale through your savvy use of social media? Closed the big one on the golf course? Persistently pursued that hard-to-reach decision-maker, with great final results? Fulfilled a seemingly impossible order?

In this episode of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley showcases several promotional products that you can recommend with confidence to clients and prospects.
Do you work with local sports leagues in need of fundraising ideas? Have real estate clients that handle lots of summer rental properties? Been searching for a unique item to pitch to restaurants? Check out the video.
The Pitch: I love, love, love my new iPhone (I stole Steve’s upgrade to get it). But one thing that drives me nuts about it is all the fingerprints on the glass front. I use my handy microfiber screen-cleaning cloth a million times a day. So I think the new Big Mouth Key Chain from Opper Fiber (asi/45513) is super awesome. It’s a large key chain that holds a blank cleaning cloth. It’s perfect for many promotions, including a giveaway with iPhone (which I never received). Check out the company’s website here: www.clothpromotions.com and ask them about specifics for item #CPP4220. The Bottom Line: Send in the clean-up crew.
The Pitch: Mathletes everywhere: Prime Line (asi/79530) offers a slim, ergonomic 8-digit calculator with a soft-touch rubber keypad (item #PL-4390). Think of accountants, mortgage and real estate markets, insurance, school stores and any promotion that encourages customers to count on you. Pricing starts at: 100; $5.75, plus they offer free 24-hour rush service. Click here: http://www.primeline.com/Products/ProductDetail.aspx?fpartno=PL-4390. The Bottom Line: Do the math.
Close Up and Personal
The Pitch: Every time we go out to a restaurant, I have to give Steve my reading glasses and he looks very special in their girly designs. It would be much better for all those Steves out there to carry around this convenient gadget from KTI Promo (asi/63776). Item #BB01 is a magnifying glass, counterfeit money detector, a reading LED light, and a laser pointer in one. Pricing starts at: 100; $11.65. Click here: http://www.ktipromo.com/productView.aspx?id=178. The Bottom Line: Bigger is better.
The Pitch: Don’t dilute your Mojito. Just in time for summer parties and outdoor events, Intelligent Galaxy (asi/62731) brings you ChillBalls, which keep drinks cold without watering them down. The pre-frozen chillers are clipped securely in the glass, in the best possible chilling position, without the health risks of unclean water. Check them out here: http://www.intelligentgalaxy.com/ChillBalls.php. For pricing and other info, email: VitoC@intelligentgalaxy.com. The Bottom Line: Nice ice.
