I’m Aware The Pitch: BamBams (asi/38228)is well known and highly rated for its inflatable noisemakers and other spirited products, but did you know that the supplier also offers the very popular silicone awareness braceletsin a wide variety of colors and three different sizes? Well, that’s what I’m here for, to drop the knowledge. These are a hit among all demographics. Pitch them for fundraisers, concerts, sporting events, prom and graduation favors, summer camps, swim clubs and more. For all the options and various prices, click here: http://bit.ly/1xPdBP5. The Bottom Line: A lasting impression.
Magnify It The Pitch: If you’re going to give out keychains, why not get more bang for your buck by ensuring they do more than just hold keys? I like the Magnifier Keychain from Jornik (asi/63549). You can get it for as low as 99 cents. Suggest it for auto-related programs, real estate giveaways, and self-promotions (“we are the key to your success”). Check it out here: http://bit.ly/1Ig4Lto. The Bottom Line: Zoom in.
At Your Doorstep The Pitch: As Logo Mats (asi/67849) notes, branding should start at the front door. The Georgia-based supplier provides USA-made, high-quality indoor and outdoor floor mats that help your clients make great first impressions. Pitch them for retail, new homeowner gifts, hotel entryways, etc. To check out all of the options, including UV-resistant and anti-fatigue mats, click here: http://bit.ly/1BJih4T. The Bottom Line: Wipe your feet.
Isn’t That Special? The Pitch: If your client needs your help with a special event, look no further than Checkerboard (asi/44669). They’ve got you covered with everything from Save the Date cards to invitations and announcements to signage and branded collateral, like personalized pillows and throw covers. They count among their top markets/occasions: weddings, anniversaries and retirements, bar/bat mitzvahs, conferences, grand openings, media and entertainment and more. Save 10% on your order until 6/1 by using code CKBD10. For more information, click here: http://bit.ly/1aaTaRS. The Bottom Line: You're invited.
