Chinese New Years 2019

1) China is the most populous country in the world with 1.25 BILLION people. That is 4 times the population of the USA living in about the same area as the USA. It is 40 times the population of Canada!
2) Most people in China work in TRADE ZONES….these are large industrial areas (such as Shenzhen) . A TRADE ZONE is where cities and areas were built 30-40 years ago by the Chinese Govt to concentrate certain types of industry in one area. Shenzhen is electronics.
3) 35 years ago Shenzhen had a population of 100,000 people, mostly farmers. Now, Shenzhen is a city of 25 million with 100 Million living in the surrounding area. The total area of Shenzhen is about the size of Southern California from Los Angeles to San Diego!
4) Most people living in Shenzhen (and the other major centers) have moved there from the country-side of rural China…… If you were to look at Miami on a USA map…think of that as Shenzhen….Everyone comes from somewhere else!
5) Come Chinese New Years…(or close to the actual holiday)….100’s of millions of people (yes 100’s of millions) get on the train or in their cars and go home……most cannot afford to fly home (domestic airlines are expensive) so they drive for 2-5 days or train for the 3-4 days….just to get home for New Years.
6) The best way to think of this is imagine EVERYONE in the USA leaves work and gets in their car or takes a train to travel a minimum of 500-1000 miles. That is a pretty close idea of the chaos!
7) Once they get back home, (after 2-5 days of travel)  about 15% of the all of the people who went home for the holiday…DO NOT RETURN…..they don’t phone in and say they are not coming back…they just DON’T RETURN!
8) So….after the holidays…employers are scrambling to get new employees to fill the roles of those who did not return.  There is even a NEW business that has cropped up after the holiday to capture the returnees……Job Catchers…these are people who stand at the train stations and ask returning workers A) What do you do?..and B) How much do you make?…..They then offer these returnees (right there and then) another job at a better wage..(and then drive them to the new factory or place of work)….a full 5-7% of people returning back actually start a NEW JOB!
9) The actual holiday is Feb 7th in 2018, but it effects are felt well in advance and well after the holiday….and oh yeah…almost forgot…
10) In September and October (9 months after CNY) there is a baby boom….spouses who have not seen each other except for CNY get pregnant and then in the Autumn the woman goes home to have the baby….
So…..next time a client asks you why………send them this blog…..and it will help….

New promotional product ideas for 2018

New promotional product ideas for Fall 2018 unveiled

New Promotional Product ideas for Fall of 2018 are now unveiled!

The promo industry thrives on new ideas. Here are 5 new ones set to rock the promo world.

Promotional products (aka Swag) is a 27 Billion US dollar industry currently going through a major sea change, metamorphing from a catalog based, slow moving print and promotions business to now a primarily web-based business working on short retail type cycles with ideas rapidly coming on scene and almost just as fast, vanishing.

New promotional product ideas for 2018

 

Distributors. Do you feel out of touch with your client, stuck?

This is a pretty common feeling amongst distributors and not without good reason. The average ASI distributor is 57 years old while the average end user buyer is 35. This has come as a result of ASI not doing a good enough job recruiting new people into the industry and at the same time millenials are moving into business in ever increasing numbers.

“By 2025 50% of the US workforce will be occupied by the millenials while the average age of ASI distributors will be 59-62. No wonder distributors feel lost!”

Promo Motive is bucking the trend from other legacy suppliers by bringing you newly emerging trends and innovative promotional ideas. Here are what we see as the top 5 for Fall 2018. For samples, prices and imprint info call us at 1-888-908-1481 or email John@promocrunch.com.

Get Your Logo on it for Less. Factory Direct Promotional Products for Less.

Promotional product professionals deserve a break. They deserve to make more money for all of the effort they put into their difficult work.

The business of selling and delivering customized promotional products often takes a bad rap but what is more problematic is that distributors are often doing it for very little profit.

ASI Distributors often deal with overly demanding clients and rush orders with unreasonable timelines. All of this would be fine if their profit was worth it but often they will do all of this work for very little in return.

“We believe that distributors deserve to make more than a lousy ‘C’!”
