Here’s What’s Poppin’ The Pitch: Today is my father-in-law Gerry’s 85th birthday and my niece Megan’s 22nd birthday. Celebrate anyone’s birthdays with a gift of a birthday box from Funky Chunky LLC (asi/55536). Send it to your loyal clients and pitch it to your HR clients. Each gift contains a 16-oz. bag of sea salt caramel popcorn (during cool months) or a 12-oz. bag of caramel corn (during warm months). The box is individually wrapped with a special “Happy Birthday” ribbon. Pricing is 12: $18-R. Click here and search “birthday box”: http://bit.ly/1BAMKTQ. The Bottom Line: Oh happy day.
Hole in One The Pitch: Look for our upcoming cover story on the golf market in your February issue of Advantages magazine. It’s big bucks, people. The desktop golf game from Leed’s (asi/66887) would be a fun tournament giveaway in the goody bag. It includes a mini putter, ball, flag and felt putting green. The only thing missing is a teeny tiny Rory McIlroy (and the 19th hole). For pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1rXuF20. The Bottom Line: Hit the (little) links.
Blow It The Pitch: As I sit here sniffling, I happen upon the car cup tissue holder from Providence (asi/79980). Be sure to suggest this for all your auto-related and health-care clients. It holds 30 tissues. Get it for as low as $1.65. Click here for further information: http://bit.ly/1xKp3L2. The Bottom Line: No flu for you.
Grab a Bud The Pitch: I like this idea from Eddystone Designs (asi/51666). They suggest you do business over a beer with abranded titanium business card bottle opener. Made in the USA and color marked without the use of any inks or dyes, you can feature logos, original graphics, contact information, or other personalization, laser engraved in metallic tones or other colors. It’s designed to fit in most wallet credit card slots, and pricing starts at: 50; $9.38-R. Click here: http://bit.ly/1KeAKx8. The Bottom Line: Crack open a cold one and a hot prospect.
