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 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. It is very common for Distributors to continue to go to the same old Supplier well and promote the same old Supplier ideas. Promo Motive is a supplier who does it differently. We concentrate on NEW ideas ONLY!

Why ASI is bad for your business

We believe that only using ASI or PPAI search for your business is a bad idea.

Here’s why!

We have been a supplier for 20 years and there are some secrets about ASI that most distributors don’t know. It is important to know so you can make more sales and make more money.

Here are a few key things you need to be aware of.

#1 – When you see ANY search result it is PAID to be placed there by the supplier

When using product searches on ASI or PPAI you may not be seeing the best, most popular or most innovative products at all. You are simply seeing what was paid to be seen!

Suppliers pay on average 60K a year for product placement. A few years ago I bought half of 1 day a week’s banner. It cost $1500 PER DAY!

Folding reusable drinking straw for your logo or promotional marketing

#2 – The average age of end users is 35 while the average ASI distributor age is 57

There is a disconnect in the age gap that is most apparent if Distributors ONLY use ASI and PPAI search.

As a supplier, every day I get inquiries from Distributors looking for “something their client found online!” The end user wants something unique and unusual. They don’t always want the same thing, again… and again. You need to look elsewhere!

#3 – If you only use ASI and PPAI search, what advantage do you have over your competitor?

It may seem obvious, but if you and the Distributor down the street get the same inquiry for the same general product what advantage do you have? Isn’t it then only down to price?

In the internet age, Distributors need an advantage to beat out their biggest competitor: the end user!

If you keep presenting the same old ideas as your competitor down the street you will continue to encourage the end user (remember they are 35 and web-savvy) to buy online and NOT from you.

“It’s time to think differently!”

set ups are a scam

What do YOU think?

Does this make sense to you? Is this intriguing? Is this an idea you want to explore? Join the many hundreds of other innovative forward thinking Distributors who are looking for something different.

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.

Third Point

It’s not about why would anyone pay $10 for a straw, but more importantly it’s about what it says about a brand to have their logo on a folding reusable drinking straw.

Your clients logo on a LAST STRAW says to the world that the client cares about the environment, is on top of the latest trends and lastly, but not least, they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem and being a part of the solution!
