Monkey Around The Pitch: In
my estimation, it isn’t humanly possible to not be amused by
monkeys. They are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. For your
clients who don’t want their customers choosing someone else’s
service (“Why monkey around with other companies?”), Triumph
Calendars/Norwood (asi/92185) has what you need. Item #3300
is a 12-sheet, 2009 executive calendar featuring monkey antics. It
is simply 9” x 19” of fun. Pricing starts at: Qty.-100;
list price-$3.59; price code-Q. Web address: www.norwood.com. The Bottom Line: Go bananas.
Glamour Girls The Pitch: Salons,
spas, women-only events and many more of your clients (think bridal
showers too) will eat this up: The Diva for a Day kit (item#11179-000)
from Custom HBC Corp.
bath caviar, fragranced lotion, Diva Nails nail polish, nail polish
remover pad, body spray and lip gloss. Pricing starts at: Qty.-25;
list price-$14.27; price code-R. Web address: www.customhbc.com. The Bottom Line: Gussy up.
Have a Toast The Pitch: Even
those who aren’t “morning people” will smile when
they wake up to a breakfast complete with smiley-faced toast. Courtesy
of Prime Line (asi/79530), item
#PL-8222, is a logo toaster that browns toast with a cheerful smiling
face (unlike mine before I have my coffee). It wipes clean with a non-reflective
surface and has a 45" power cord. Pricing starts at: Qty.-25;
list price-$33.49; price code-R. Web
address: www.primeline.com. The Bottom Line: Sales will be popping up.
Open Doors The Pitch: Chocolate
is the key to my heart. How about some key-shaped chocolate, which would be
super for real estate, construction, home improvement stores and all others
who offer the “key to your success?” Chocolate
Inn Ltd. (asi/44900) has a .5-oz, 2 x 2 chocolate key that’s
right for you. Ask about their free insulation
offer, if you haven’t
received their e-mail. Web address: www.chocolateinn.com. The Bottom Line: Turnkey operation.
Pink Power The Pitch: Good
deeds don’t go unnoticed. During the months of July and August, Ad
Master Supply (asi/31485) will donate 10% of the
proceeds for all sales of their “pink items.” They
have a pink ribbon awareness clip, with magnet (item #RBC) for instance
that anyone at all could use. Around our house, I find you can never
have enough clips to hold the 20 million or so school forms and calendars
you put on the side of the fridge. Pricing starts at: Qty.-250;
list price-$1.14; price code-R. Web address: www.admasterline.com. The Bottom Line: Pitch in.
