Spillover The Pitch: I read a report yesterday that many Northeastern hospital maternity wards should be expecting Blizzard Babies nine months from now, given that Northeasterners have been trying to find ways to warm up (shall we say?) the past couple of snowbound days and nights. Ahem. On that note, you really should try pitching this product to your local baby-related clients, such as doctors, hospitals, daycare centers, Mommy and Me classes, birthing classes and more. Item RS1000 fromBroder Bros. (asi/42090) is a pullover towel bib, made from 100% cotton terry. This was my favorite type of bib when my boys were babies and let me tell ya, they were messy. You can get it for as low as: 144; $5.36-P. Click here: https://www.broderbros.com. The Bottom Line: Easy clean-up.
No Mud Wrestling The Pitch: Driving into work this morning I thought to myself, I really don't like when the snow turns muddy. How about you? Well you don't have to worry about that with custom crystal snow globes from Createplus LLC (asi/47650). These are a unique idea for souvenir shops at tourist destinations, hotel openings, ribbon cuttings and much more. Pricing starts at:500; $13.42-T. Check out item CP101187 on ESP or email: firstname.lastname@example.org The Bottom Line: Snow daze.
Believe It, Achieve It The Pitch: I don't know about you, but I'm really not feeling motivated here this week. I've got holiday fever, kids. Anyone seeking a little motivation could use item WORD06A from The Magnet Group (asi/68507). It's a message magnet with 16 motivational words,such as "Achieve," "Determined," and "Reach." It has a full magnet backing and is cut so that magnets are easily pulled apart. It's a great idea for schools and offices. Pricing starts at: 250; 0.67-R. Click here: http://www.themagnetgroup.com. The Bottom Line: Sales that stick.
Survivor The Pitch: Here's something that's perfect for campers, hunters, hikers and other outdoorsy types. The compact emergency survival kit from Innovation Factory (asi/62667) features survival items sealed inside a waterproof steel can that may be used as a cooking pot or as a drinking cup. Includes: Folding wing stove, solid fuel tablets, strike anywhere matches, poly water bag, hard candy, instant broth, high-energy drink mix, tea bags, sugar packets, aluminum foil, survival instructions, and resealable top. Pricing starts at: 50; $10.50-R. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: A helping handout.
