sex promotional products tradeshow and marketing ideas

The First Time I had Sex I was Afraid….

The First Time I had 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!

Promo Swag TrendSpotting. What is it and Why do we do it?

The latest trend in the Promotional Product field is one in which very few Swag suppliers work. That trend is called PROMO SWAG TRENDSPOTTING!

What is Promo TrendSpotting and how does it work?

TrendSpotting is something that has been used by leading-edge fashion retailers and product designers for years. Promo Motive is the first and foremost swag supplier to use this insightful methodology of market research for the promotional products industry.

What is TrendSpotting?

Simply put, Swag TrendSpotting is the collection of data gleaned from various Web sources such as YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram and over other 30 web sites combined with a keyword analysis of nearly 50 international promotional product blogs where our proprietary search criteria is designed to find and spot product trends that can be logo’d. (whew!)

The Old Way of Promo Suppliers is Dead!

Traditional Swag Suppliers work in what I refer to as a stale-dated business model. Basically they review their past years sales, re-order the same products for the next year and inventory them in their USA warehouse imprinting them on an as need basis (I know this because I have worked in the past for Big Suppliers like this).

The upside for this business model is that if you want the same thing for this year’s tradeshow as last years tradeshow, the supplier will have it and can deliver it in 24 hours.

The many downsides for this business model include the marketing sins of being boring by using the same swag, year after year!
