Protect Yourself The Pitch: Holy shark! Have you seen the video of the pro surfer being attacked by a shark while competing? If not, click here (don't worry, it's not graphic and he's fine, but it's pretty amazing): http://bit.ly/1OrNWPU. I'll stick with my pool, thank you very much, where I only have to protect myself from the sun and Steve's cannonballs. Here's where Snugz/USA Inc. (asi/88060) comes in with their wide variety of personal care items, including sunscreen. I like the 1-oz. Diva SPF30 Shimmer Sunscreen, which you can get for as low as $1.82-C. Pitch it for spas, salons, teen events and more. It comes in unscented or Coconut Breeze (that's the scent I'd prefer; very beachy and summery). For more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1SxtSfu. The Bottom Line: Slather it on.
Selfie Sensation The Pitch: Tons of people are obsessed with themselves it appears, so take advantage of that with the Let Me Take a Selfie Keychain Remote from Hit Promotional Products (asi/61125). It's a high-def Bluetooth 3.0 wireless remote that pairs with handheld devices and opens the camera app. A button-cell battery is included. Suggest this for college welcome gifts, travel promotions and fundraisers. Get it for as low as $8.29-C. For more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1gK7h3N. The Bottom Line: Smile pretty.
No Sweat The Pitch:The folks at AdCapitol (asi/31260) are pretty excited about their SMART Tiers moisture-wicking technology for athletic wear. SMART stands for Sweat Management And Removal Technology. The apparel is entirely American made. The first soft tier keeps the skin dry without the use of chemical treatments. Soft silky inner fibers provide comfort, no sogginess, and a dry, non-bacteria-growing microclimate. The outer layer is designed for maximum evaporation and sweat transfer. It dries quickly, preventing condensation and odors. To read more about the technology and to get further info on the apparel, click here:http://bit.ly/1KgmBBM. The Bottom Line: Give them a workout.
A Perfect Match The Pitch: I'm sure I've told you this already. I'm sure I've told you just about everything already. I take matches from bars and restaurants. That's what they're there for after all. I don't smoke, but they are great to have on hand for all my many candles at home and to carry in my purse, too, for times when the candle is out on the restaurant table (we need that romantic lighting). I happen to prefer the box of matches vs. the book and Atlantis Match Company (asi/37390) offers all your clients could want. Pitch them to your hospitality clients and for any event or promotion that is "on fire." To see your options, click here: http://bit.ly/1CLwQLU. The Bottom Line: Strike one up.
