Hello & Welcome to         

If you’ve landed here, it’s because you are interested in how you can grow your business using promotional products. 

You are in the right place.  We have a lot of them to choose from. 

Used correctly, promotional products are tools.

They are only to be considered give-aways, trinkets & trash, swag or tchtchkes... if that is how you use them. 

In order to be effective, creative promotions need to begin with a purpose. 

Most everything is like that, isn't it?



So, before you head over and search for the perfect product from among our thousands, here are a few questions you might consider:

What is the purpose of your promotion? 

 What are you looking to achieve?  Do you want to create awareness?  Or are you interested in rewarding a behavior, or a result?  Do you want to get better results with current marketing tactic?  What specific action to you want people to take?  Promotional products are wonderful at getting people to do things.  They can be used to significantly improve your existing lead generation efforts.  They can be used to increase loyalty and goodwill among your existing customers or to reactivate those who have not ordered in a while.  Promotional products can be used as an incentive to encourage someone to do a good job. Or, they can be used to reward for a job well done.


Who is your target audience?   

Who, specifically, do you want to impact with your promotion?  Effective promotion depends on narrowly 'targeting' who you are after. Your items are delivered only to the specific individuals you choose, so your message (and your marketing dollars) are not wasted on those it will not resonate with.


What exactly do you want to communicate to your target group?  

If the truth be told, many companies just 'wing it,' but you should take the time to compose a strong effective marketing message.  Ask yourself, "Is my message inspiring?  Does it include a compelling benefit?"

Where do you want to reach your targeted group? 

Where will your prospect be most receptive to your message?  At the office?  At a tradeshow?  In the car?  At home?  Knowing this will help you select an item that will be useful 'exactly' where the message will be best received.


How will you get it into their hands? 

Will you distribute it at a tradeshow, in person, or via direct mail?  The delivery method is an important part of the overall experience and should be considered carefully.  Additionally, the packaging, you choose, can add to the impact of your promotion 'big time,' so don't leave this small detail out of your planning.


When do you want to start getting the results of your promotion?  

Are you going to tie your promotion to a specific event?  Is your promotion a part of an ongoing communication strategy?  Is your promotion being used to support a specific goal with a deadline?    Once again, purpose drives an effective promotion and timing is everything.  Ideally, you will want to develop your plan and order your items well in advance of its part in the implementation of your program.
