Goodbye Summer The Pitch: I hate to say it (really I do), but once Labor Day is over, thoughts turn to the holiday season. For example, we just put to bed (as we say in the publishing biz) our mid-September Advantages Gift Guide. And lucky for you, Gold Bond Inc. (asi/57653) presents their new holiday program, Gold Bond with a Bow (cute name!), to give you distributors more than 100 solutions for your holiday programs and upcoming events. The program offersmany gifts that are well under $10c retail, but you can always upsell with add-on items for those fortunate clients with bigger bucks to spend. Check it out here: www.goldbondinc.com/gifts. The Bottom Line: Ring it in.
Fixer-Upper The Pitch: My cat Sneakers hates going to the vet, so yesterday he took the liberty of scratching the heck out of me as I wrangled him into his carrier. If I get Cat Scratch Fever, don't look for Hot Deals in your inbox on Monday. At any rate, Waldor Products (asi/94770) is offering a super sale on item #812SP, which is a great on-the-go product for tending to cuts … and tears! It's a purse-perfect first-aid/sewing kit. You can get it for $1.79 (C) on 100 or more. See it here: http://www.waldorproducts.com. The Bottom Line: All sewn up.
Organize Everything The Pitch: I tend to be a bit of a clean freak, according to my kids anyway, who often tell me I'm insane. However, I just read an article on CNN.com that says tidy workers are many times more productive. So there. Meximi (asi/70899) just so happens to have a desk organizer that's also a 4-port USB hub … speaking of your productivity! It holds your pens, has a slot for sticky notes and also comes with flags. Item #9228 starts at: 100; $15.75-R.This is just what every employee needs for their desk. Check it out: http://www.365wholesale.com. The Bottom Line: Put them in their place.
