A Juicy Deal The Pitch: You’ve surely heard about the benefits of lemon water – cleansing your system, weight-loss powers, etc. For all your health-related clients and their initiatives, suggest the new 20-oz. Juicer Tumbler with straw from Hit Promotional Products (asi/61125). The juicer is built in to the screw-top lid. Think: gyms, spas, weight-loss programs and retreat destinations. It’s BPA free and hand washing is recommended. You can get it for as low as $5.99-C. Click here for more information: http://bit.ly/1DbHsjq. The Bottom Line: A juicy deal.
Mark Your Spot The Pitch: Right now, my Andrew is in the midst of studying for exams and writing papers, as he winds down his junior year at West Chester University (time is flying way too fast!). This product caught my eye, since it would be great for college students … any students … and really, anybody. It’s the Spearhead Pen from Jornik (asi/63549). It can be used as a bookmark, paper clip or checkbook pen. Plus, it’s as thin as four business cards and weighs less than 1/8 oz., so suggest it for college recruitment efforts and as a mail-along with college acceptance letters. Also pitch it for bookstores, book clubs, banks, mortgage companies, etc. For pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1CBvLjC. The Bottom Line: Sign here.
Water, Water Everywhere The Pitch: At the resort last week, they stocked the onsite gym facility’s fridge with bottled water. No, don’t be silly; I didn’t actually work out there (I did enough walking around Duval Street). I only went for the free water. But it wasn’t logoed, so that was a missed opportunity. Alexa Springs (asi/34037) bottles its water straight from protected springs nestled in the middle of the Ouachita National Forest in Arkansas. It would be a health-filled option for hotels and so many other clients. The supplier notes that the average time a bottle of water sits in a car is 6-8 hours, so suggest bottled water for auto dealers too. For pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1GDGOzm. The Bottom Line: Sip away.
What’s the Hub, Bub? The Pitch: If you’re looking to pitch a unique item for tech promos, Acehigh Tech Co. (asi/30537) hooks you up with Hubot, a robot-looking, award-winning USB hub. He has four ports, movable arms and rubberized wheels, and his eyes light up when plugged in. Get it for as low as $10.50-R. Click here: http://bit.ly/1FOcGyc. The Bottom Line: Desktop companion.
