In this episode of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley shows off some new products perfect for a variety of promotional campaigns. Looking for a food item that's sure to spice up a tailgate promo? Want an idea that's highly targeted to the education market? Check out the video.
To the Spa The Pitch: I went for a two-hour facial on Saturday and I don’t look one bit different. You would think after all that something would have improved. I had to use up a $150 gift certificate Steve gave me for Christmas, but I’m really not the pampering type (I don’t like strangers touching me). However, I do love to indulge myself at home and away and this spa-to-go pack from Beacon Promotions (asi/39250)is just right. It’s a travel collection including: Sea Marine Revitalizing Shampoo, Marine Collagen Conditioner, Sea Salt Body Wash, Hydrating Body Butter and Cream Soap. This is perfect for spa gifts and hotel amenities. Pricing starts at: 25; $21.67. Go to: www.beaconpromotions.com and search for item #9107. The Bottom Line: Say, “Ah.”
Jazz It Up The Pitch: This one’s for the ladies:Mini retractable ear phones with rhinestones. Great for IPODS, MP3, MP4 and other similar listening devices. They are fromAtlantis Time-Line (asi/37385) and pricing starts at: 150; $4.95. Think about these for any promotion aimed at the feminine forces and especially teen and college ages.

Put a Jacket On The Pitch: These are great for anyone and everyone who wears eyeglasses or sunglasses: Lens Jackets fromLens Jackets (asi/67052) (go figure!) are tubes of high-quality micro-fiber cloth that slide over eyeglass arms of all shapes and sizes.
