Meet Emily Graham

Meet Emily Graham

We are pleased to introduce Emily Graham to the Promo Crunch promotional products family.

As the owner of the business I am very sensitive to making any changes to the company that are not in the best interest of our customers. We believe in “extreme customer service” and any addition we make – whether it be product or personnel – I am always aware that every step forward must be an improvement.

emily-graham-promo-motive-promo-crunch-1

Emily was raised on Promo…

Emily has been around and in the promo business since she was born. As I am a long-time promo supplier, my two daughters have both been raised on Promo. Over the last quarter century they have watched as I’ve built Promo Crunch and Promo Motive.

 

“We believe in EXTREME customer service!”

 

They have learned what coded pricing is, what a Supplier does and what is a Distributor. They have learned all about the arcane world of ASI/PPAI. Emily is no ordinary “hire off the street CSR” when in comes to promotion.

Multi-Dimensional Character Brings a Fresh Millennial Perspective

Emily is not the run of the mill “owner’s kid” – in fact, I am really offended that people hire their kids even if they are wrong for the job. Emily has been offered work here several times over the years but has turned it down to pursue her own goals. Emily has attended University, has performed at a National level as a pro fitness model (just like her Dad… NOT!) and has worked as national sales rep for a nutritional supplements company. Emily is a very goal-oriented salesperson.

Of Course, I am her Dad – Yes, I am biased.

It would be disingenuous of me to say that being Emily’s Dad doesn’t play a part in me hiring her as a customer rep. I had to think long and hard about it. Was she right for the job, would she understand your needs, would she dig deep and hard to solve your promo needs. After much reflection, the only answer I could come back with was and is YES. Emily Graham will rock your promo product world.

New Ideas are the Lifeblood of the Promo Industry

NEW Promo Ideas! Don’t Run Away!

New ideas are the lifeblood of the promotional products industry. End-users from all over the country are looking for new ideas from their distributors and Promo Motive is the SUPPLIER of these new ideas to Distributors.

In every business it easy to get in a rut. However, if you are a promo Distributor, getting in a product rut is a very bad idea.

We concentrate on NEW ideas ONLY!

How to sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw.

If you think that selling a $5 net drinking straw is a tough sell think again!

In fact, there are folding straws on the market that sell for $30 or more… Check out this Kickstarter program that sold over 80,000 units at $30 a piece!

“The selling points on the folding straw are not all about the function of it, it’s about the emotional appeal of it!”

First point

This all started with a Turtle video. The storyline is simple: ecologists and scientists working in Costa Rica come across a Turtle in distress. They pull it aboard and find a plastic straw stuck in its nose. WARNING: video has disturbing images. 

Second Point

After over 30 million views of the video and a greater understanding of how billions of plastic straws were ending up in the oceans and staying undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.

McDonalds and Starbucks move to ban plastic straws, transition to reusable

The trend to ban plastic straws continues its worldwide movement as both Starbucks and McDonalds ban plastic straws.

Disposable plastic straws continue to be the poster child for everything bad in the world of non-recyclable plastics and major corporations are taking notice.

As is often the case, major corporations start at the edges of their business empires and then quickly move towards the center. Today both McDonald’s and Starbucks of India banned the use of all disposable plastics including drinking straws.

This ban comes amidst an ever-increasing chorus of bans from cities, states and countries banning the disposable plastic straw. This ban includes Seattle, Vancouver and over 500 other cities.

What started all of this, a Turtle Video?

Yes…24 million views of the video below showing a sea turtle having a disposable plastic straw wrenched from its nostril (where it had become embedded in its sinus and throat) has prompted a worldwide backlash against the disposable straw and given rise to the folding stainless steel drinking straw.

The disposable plastic straw is now being banned worldwide. Seattle bans plastic straws.

The Promotional Products market gets in early on the trend.

Often the promotional products market is slow to adopt new ideas but the folding reusable straw is out of the gate and available for corporate promotions as of August 1, 2018. Get it here first.
