The Joe Show: New Products
In this episode of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley showcases several unique products that will help you get the attention of your clients. Looking for the next big thing? Want to stay ahead of your competition and win more business? Check out this video.
Soup's On The Pitch: My parents evacuated to our house from the Jersey shore and we made the best of it. When life gives you hurricanes, make Hurricanes, I say, so that's exactly what I did...and Irish stew; you have to have comfort food, right? Speaking of comfort food, Provender International Corp. (asi/79975) offers Simply Soup, black bean and barley soup mix packaged in a decorative one-quart mason jar.Just add water and it's ready. This is a nice idea for holiday gifts and to send to clients who may be under the weather and anyone who needs a little cheering up. Pricing starts at: 12; $9.17. Click here: http://79975.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: The perfect recipe.
Artsy Types The Pitch: On Friday, before New York's Mayor Bloomberg shut down all transportation, we took a train trip into NYC and to the Guggenheim museum. The featured exhibit was a bunch of boulders sitting atop a bunch of pillows. I didn't get it. I do, however, appreciate the artists' work in the handmade art glass awards from Moderne Glass Company Inc. (asi/71920).Think of these for all those end-of-year awards programs and ceremonies that will be taking place. Pricing for #23030 in particular starts at: 3; $22.75. Check them out here: http://www.glassamerica.com/. The Bottom Line: The inspiration.
H2O on the Go The Pitch: This is a refreshing idea: The Tap2Pure 25-oz. squeeze bottle with a replaceable filter in the cap turns tap water into great-tasting, healthy water. Each filter provides 50 gallons of clean water capacity in a BPA-free, NSF-certified, LDPE non-leaching, biodegradable plastic bottle. Replacement filters are sold through the manufacturer. One bottle replaces about 300 water bottles, so pitch this for eco-friendly promotions. It's fromCal Springs LLC (asi/30111) and pricing starts at: 150; $11.49.This is perfect for everybody's backpack. Check it out here: http://www.californialine.com/ The Bottom Line: To your health.
In the Spotlight The Pitch: We had our flashlights out and ready to go this weekend. Luckily, we didn't need them, but flashlights sure can come in handy and Bossco International (asi/41246)puts a different spin on them with their Hi Beam Wrist Lite. It features a universal-size neoprene band with hook-and-loop closure and four bright LED lights, with a wide beam and super-bright illumination. Lights rotate a full 360 degrees and tilt up 45 degrees. It's water- and shock-resistant too. Think of this for runners and college kids walking campuses at night. Pricing starts at: 110; $10.40.
