Emerging B2B marketing trends in late 2018

What promotional ideas are trending for B2B marketing in the latter half of 2018? Let’s have a look.

Promotional product ideas are changing fast in 2018 and in the latter half of 2018 there are a few new marketing trends that are climbing the charts.

There seems to be a clear and newly emerging marketing trend in the field of promotional swag in the latter half of 2018: almost all of the new promotional ideas seem to somehow involve your smart phone.

POP socket: The first is the pop socket. This ubiquitous round disc is the perfect place to launch your logo or brand from. Inexpensive and easily seen by hundreds of people each day. The round pop socket is the leading promotional idea.

POP socket square shape: Not every logo is round or even looks good on a round substrate so now there’s a fix for the that: the square pop socket.

Custom shaped POP ring: If your business has an iconic shape why not go full hawg and get your shape made into a custom shaped pop ring?

Why is business marketing so important these days?

Old school media such as newspapers, yellow pages and radio are on the way out. Advocates for these mediums will argue against that fact but the short answer is that these older types of ad mediums are just no longer producing results they once did.

Very simple…the power to advertise your own business is not just in your hands but is BEST to be in your hands. This is one of the reasons that Trade Show 8 and its line of unique and eye-catching promotional products are so important.

If you’re paying set up fees you’re getting ripped off.

I am a long-time promotional products supplier and I am shocked that people are still charging and still paying for set-ups, run charges, color matches etc.

Stop it Now!

Let me let you in on a secret.

As a supplier of swag who sells to distributors I am going to tell you now that you should never, ever, pay for set ups, run charges etc. It is a scam.

Issue #1

When was the last time you bought blanks and decorated them yourselves? Never. You always want it logo’d!

Issue #2

If issue #1 is true then why don’t suppliers just price out the product with a logo on it? They already know you’re going to want it with a logo!

Issue #3

Here’s where the suppliers who charge will say, “well…there’s a cost difference for 1,2,3 or 4 colors.” I say Bullshit!

I tell you this, the cost difference is so small that if a supplier can’t charge you an all inclusive logo cost or better yet an all inclusive product with logo cost regardless of how many colors you need then they are not very informed or  are playing the game as seen in the next issue, #4.

Issue #4

Suppliers who charge run fees, color matching etc. do this for 2 reasons…..1 to make more money and 2 to make their product appear less expensive than it really is!

Issue #4

Confusion to the client. (yes I know I used 4 twice…thought I would confuse you) Not only are these charges unnecessarily extra but they are coded on idiotic numerals like a G! This is just confusing and a time-waster.

Issue #5

Some charges are real and should be charged. When there is a real cost and its a significant one, go ahead and charge it. On our custom shaped flash drives for instance we pay $80 to the factory in China for the mold. Guess what, we charge our customers $80. I think that’s fair.

Issue #6

Make it easy on the customer. I can’t tell you how many clients I have spoken with who say they spend about 20 minutes costing out a job! 20 Minutes! Are you nuts!

The costing of the job should take 1 minute, the other 19 minutes you should be selling something else, high-fiving the guy in the cubicle next to you or rooting around on YouTube. You should get from the supplier a price. one, all inclusive price, you then would do your mark up on it and send it to the end user. Badda bing badda boom, done!

And on that note ,if you are sending a quote to customers with run charges, color matches etc….How do you think they feel about that?

In closing, I am sure there will be some of those out there who think I am nuts on this issue and that it is ok for all of these ridiculous charges. To you I say the following………You are wrong!

 

Below is an example of how it should be. Coded on a C to include shipping to your door and 1,2, 3 or even 4 color process logo. No extra charges! How easy does that make it!
