chinese new years is over and promotional products marketing gets back on track

Chinese New Years is Over. Promotional Products Markets Open. Chaos Reigns.

2018’s Chinese New Years is slowly and finally coming to an end. Promotional Products factories re-open amid annual chaos.

Even though CNY 2018 is officially open the “fun is yet to begin”. John Graham of Promo Motive explains some of the pitfalls and chaos expected in the weeks ahead.

Fast Facts.

  1. 12% of all employees do not return to work and over 60% of those not returning do not inform their employer.
  2. 17% of those employees returning to work after the 3 week holiday do not go to the employer of their pre-holiday work but start a new job!
  3. There are more people retiring in China each year than enter the workforce. This means employers are always fighting to retain workers.

With all of the above in mind it is important to stress the following. Get your orders in ASAP so you are at the head of the line!

What else does CNY bring?

Chinese New Years 2018 also gives us time to add new ideas and products to our offering. Below are a few of the new swag ideas for 2018!

EDC Promotional Multi Tools are now one of the top searches for trade show swag in late 2017.

How is it that custom multi tools and edc survival tools for your keychain and wallet are all of a sudden trending up?

John Graham of Promo Motive explains:

 “ About 6 weeks ago we started to see the needle move on our trend analysis indicators showing that EDC Multi Tools were quickly and dramatically starting to increase in the search inquiries and social media tags. That trend is only getting more rabid with each days data.”

Everyday carry tools (EDC) are a new take on an old idea but one that seems right for the times.

Graham goes on further to explain:

“ In the 60’s 70’s and 80’ guys and girls grew up either with hand tools of their own or handed down from their fathers and mothers. It was a generational process going back hundreds of years. At the same time brands like Victornox, Swiss Army Knife and Leatherman were producing the first set of desirable multi tools.

In the late 90’s the move away from hand tools to digital tools took place and these first generation of edc survival multi tools were left to slowly die.”
