Good Times The Pitch:You can’t have a pool party without beach balls and Zenith Promotions (asi/98980), a.k.a. “the fun place” (which is also what I call the Huston house), offers 7-inch solid colored beach balls at only 99 cents-R. Suggest these for travel promos, rental agent giveaways, concerts, bars and outdoor festivals, summer camps and more. Click here for further info: http://bit.ly/1yK6rvs. The Bottom Line: Have a ball.
Little Buddy The Pitch: Light up a party with the Little Tapper light-up bottle opener/key chain from Bay State Specialties (asi/38980). Suggest it for bars, summer events, tailgating festivities, new homeowner gifts, etc. For pricing and colors, click here: http://bit.ly/1EkghXv. The Bottom Line: Tap that.
Put Some Clothes On The Pitch: Oh, the Twitter feed was really blowing up with news that Tim Tebow will be wearing an Eagles jersey. What? Question: Chip Kelly -- genius or nutball? Time will tell. You, though, can have ajersey of your choice for your beer bottle in very little time from Gemini Industries (asi/56100). Pitch these for sporting events, obviously, but they would also be great for company picnics, team-building activities and bars. I really have bars on the brain today. For pricing, colors and more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1HM4Ozs. The Bottom Line: A real sport.
Freebies The Pitch:My father always says, “If it’s free, it’s for me,” so he would really love this deal if he was an ad specialty rep. Sun Graphix (asi/90125) is offering 25 free compact planners with sales of $1,500 until June 1. Suggest these for your business clients and school stores. My hair salon also gives out planners at holiday time. Check out the specifics here: http://bit.ly/1yK6sQg. The Bottom Line: Get ‘em while you can.
