Happy Talk The Pitch: Let’s start the week on a happy note with the Pop’n Happysqueezie thingy (yes, that’s what I’m calling it). It’s from Ariel Premium Supply Inc. (asi/36730). It has a happy, smiley face and when you squeeze it, your client’s message pops out. It’s very cute and you can get it foras low as $1.67 -R. Check it out: http://bit.ly/18SDTDU. The Bottom Line: Squeeze out a sale.
Looking Good The Pitch: Blue Generation (asi/40653) offers the perfect item for uniform programs, golf tournaments, trade shows and more.Soft Touch Pique Polos are easy to care for and wrinkle-resistant and they come in a wide variety of colors. Pitch them for summer camp counselors too. For colors, styles and prices, click here: http://bit.ly/1x8mUck. The Bottom Line: No fuss.
What’s Up, Doc? The Pitch: National Doctor’s Day is March 30 and Primeline (asi/79530) has just what the doctor ordered. Custom Power Buddies dressed in white coat or scrubs are perfect for health-related promotions. It comes gift-boxed with a USB cable connector to charge devices from a computer or any USB port with a power supply. For all the info, click here: http://bit.ly/1DskkQr. The Bottom Line: What a guy.
Grow Your Own The Pitch:I learn something new every day, I really do. Today I learned that March is known as the breakup month, because divorce filings peak. The reasoning is that all those unhappy spouses wait until after the holidays and Valentine’s Day to break the news. That’s rather sad, no? Your customers will never break up with you if you consistently bring them new ideas and great service. At your service in time for spring and summer promos is Jornik Manufacturing (asi/63549), with a ton of new products. I like the Grow-Your-Own Herb Garden Kits. A recycled six-count egg carton contains three packages of seeds and starter soil, plus wooden plant stakes that can be written on to identify the seed type in each compartment. Pitch these for Earth Day in April. Get them for as low as $4.99-C. For seed types and further info, click here: http://bit.ly/1Bpl6Xy. The Bottom Line: The seeds of sales.
