What do pigs dream of?

What do the PIGS in the Promo Industry Dream of? They Dream of BIG Pig-like Margins. Are You Thinking Like a PIG?

I have been a supplier to the promotional products industry for nearly 25 years and one thing I have learned is the following. The distributors who think like a PIG get profits far outweighing those who don’t get to the front of the trough.

How do you think PIG?

Start promoting and selling ideas and products that produce bigger margins.

Bigger margins come from doing 2 main things.

  1. Sell something different. If you sell the same thing as your competitor and the same thing all the time your price (and margin) will be pegged at the lowest point. It is simple economics.
  2. Sell smarter. Get in on the trends while they are ramping up not after the fact. A good idea is Fidget Spinners. A year ago those distributors who sold on the upswing of the trend made out like a bandit, those selling spinners now?  Not so much!

Here are the top 3 Margin makers for Spring 2018. Want to know more…? Call me at 1-888-908-1481 or email John@PromoCrunch.com

The First Time I has Sex I was Afraid….

The First Time I has Sex I was Afraid….The Reason Was Because I was Alone…..and in the Dark!

It’s an old joke but one that never fails to catch peoples attention. In the business of promotional product marketing isn’t it all about catching someones attention?

So…why did you open this email?

The answers are simple…..

  1. It created curiosity? You wanted to know what the rest of the statement said.
  2. It was “outside of the box”. It did not say something like “new and improved” or “cheaper than the other guys”. You would not have opened the email if it had said this.

Promotional Marketing

In the world of Promotional Products there are 2 kinds of ideas…..

  1. The kind of promo that everyone does.
  2. The kind of promo that everyone should do but doesn’t do.

The kind of promo that everyone does!

If you’re a professional marketer and you are still promoting the idea of getting a logo on a Pen, T-shirt or Mug you belong to the first group , the kind of promo that everyone does.

If you belong to this group that is ok but, don’t expect higher than usual results, recipients of the promo to go “AWESOME!”  or the boss to say….”You are brilliant!

Nope…if you belong to the group the kind of promo that everyone does you will not be remembered.

 

On the other hand…If you are a professional marketer and look for ideas that set you apart then you likely belong to the group of idea gurus who markets with the kind of promo that everyone should do but doesn’t do.

This group tends to look for new ideas, retail trends that are now working their way into promo and promotional products that make people take a second look…...just like you did when you opened this email!
