Pro Pick The Pitch: Golf clubs are a natural for incentive programs. Pro Am Golf (asi/79657) is the place to get them. In particular, their Cobra Trusty Rusty wedge club caught my eye. What golfer wouldn't appreciate having a club named Trusty Rusty (or TR, as I would call him) in his or her bag? Pricing starts at: one; $124-U. See TR here (scroll down): http://www.proamgolfctr.com/. The Bottom Line: Trusty sidekick.
Awards Program The Pitch: Your clients will be calling soon for your help with their year-end annual awards programs. DYR Design Your Recognition (asi/48051) offers so many options for customized and personalized awards, I don't know how you'll choose. I happen to like their framed art awards. For case studies, company history, pricing and to see them for yourself, click here: http://www.designyourrecognition.com/. The Bottom Line: Artistic flair.
Soft Hands The Pitch: Another great idea for incentive programs and recognizing loyal customers comes fromIncentive Concepts LLC (asi/62536). They offer LaSource-60-second fix for hands from Crabtree & Evelyn.It includes Hand Recovery, a treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes and Hand Therapy cream. It's also available for feet. This is a very nice idea for spas, B&B's, travel destinations and more. Check it out and get further info here: http://www.incentiveconcepts.com/.
