pop phone stand promotional products and trade show swag

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!

Don’t get stuck in the repeat offender category as a promotional products seller.

Getting stuck in the repeat offender category as a promotional products seller is a recipe for sales didaster. Don’t be a repeat offender!

As a supplier of factory direct promotional products I am thrilled when I get a repeat order. It’s simple, easy and generally profitable. But it is also a dangerous slippery slope.

Too often the distributors I sell to in the ASI business rely so heavily on “repeats” that they miss the following facts.

  1. Their clients are looking for new ideas……they may in fact be looking to buy them from someone else as you are not offering them!
  2. If you do not offer the client new ideas and only take the “repeats” you may be incorrectly seen as being “boring and out of touch”.

So…in an effort to keep you in the trend loop, here are the top 5 new promo swag ideas as identified by marketers from around the world. Much of this research comes from the last 3 major industry trade shows.

Is Your Smartphone The Next Big Thing in Promo Swag Marketing?

phone stands and collapsible phone holders

Your Smartphone? Is this the next frontier in promotional swag marketing?

If a single word answer is best, the answer is YES!

For years, decades even, just about everything from the lowly T-shirt to coffee mugs, pens and padfolios have been fair game for promotional advertising. The purpose has been and remains a simple one. To imprint your brand and logo into your clients mind for the least amount of cost per imprint.

“It Takes 7 Imprints To Make an Impression”

 

The adage “It takes 7 imprints to make an impression” is an old one but one that still holds true.

Basically it goes like this. To be made sufficiently aware of your logo or brand a prospective customer must see the brand (imprint) at least 7 times!

Your Smartphone is the next marketing frontier!

Love them or hate them, smartphones are here to stay and they are everywhere. Curiously, until now, they have evaded effective branding. Phone cases are too varied to be bought in bulk and imprinted and the various “accessories” on the market have not shown to have any traction. So why does the phone holder and phone rings buck the trend?

There’s an APP for that!

Apps like Facetime are turning smartphones into real life video conferencing tools. To be effective, the phone needs to be stable for best video effect and at the same time a stand lets the user have both hands free to be expressive! (afterall, don’t we all have a little Italian in all of us? 🙂

Selfie Sticks Suck!

The selfie stick had its day but is now as stinky as yesterdays fish! In the end it never was a good branding vehicle and using one often came with DORK attached to the user. But the real reason is as follows.

The selfie stick made for good “selfies” because the reach of the stick gave the smartphone cameras of 3 years ago enough distance to the subject to provide a great shot. However, the latest generation of smartphone cameras are so good they no longer need that distance (focal length) to the subject.
