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’!”

offensive ad about promotional products for tradeshows and business promotional products

Is this ad offensive or funny?

Is this ad offensive or funny? Recent email ad causes some recipients to be offended. But is it offensive?

In today’s hyper-sensitive world is it possible that ads that were once cosidered tongue-in-cheek funny are now so offensive that they speak of an enormous insensitivity?

offensive ad about promotional products for tradeshows and business promotional products

As a marketer to promotional products distributors, professional swag sellers, I am one who often pushes the boundaries in advertising. In my opinion, our ASI industry is a little too cautious in our approach which seems odd to me as we are an industry that takes pride in providing products with your logo on them that “cuts through the clutter”.

“In short, the ASI promotional industry seems to me to take pride in providing ideas and products that cut through the clutter, yet at the same time prefer to be so cautious in their own marketing to not offend anyone that they have become boring! Am I right in this?”

send me an email John@promocrunch.com

Last week I sent out the above ad via an email blast and had great response in click through (892 visits) but had one response in particular that was from a very upset person.

In part here is what she said.

“I’m sure you know what’s best for your company and the demographic you sell to, as I feel I know what’s best for my clients and the demographic I sell to. Just know that this appallingly self-congratulatory and grand-standing response didn’t win any business from me, and I’m of the opinion that winning business was the point of the ad.
Your ad is the exact opposite: it’s not edgy or dangerous; it’s out of touch with younger, open-minded, diverse and self-aware generations that don’t want to see misogyny continued in advertising. If anything, it’s an exact reflection of a sixty year old white dude. And who am I to say that’s not who you’re targeting as a demographic?”

 

My opinion is simple, my question is simpler.

I feel we have become so in tune with being sensitive to not offending anyone that we have lost our ability to laugh. If we lose this ability I feel we lose creativity and in this industry, isn’t creativity and boundary pushing part of our job.

Question.

Is this ad offensive?

Having a Hard Time Understanding Your Younger Customer

Let’s Face It! The average age of Promo Distributors according to ASI is 57. No wonder you are struggling to understand your younger buyer. The dreaded Millenial!

I have been in this business for nearly 25 years so I am not a millenial. However, I have Millenial kids and and have a very young innovative approach to the promo business.

In regards to Millenials and promo there are a few earth-shaking changes that us older promo people need to consider.

  1. Millenials want something new. Millenials are not going to repeat their pen order with the same logo and same pen for the next 10 years. You better get used to this idea because if you rely on repeats year after year you are out of luck.
  2. Millenials do not want what they predecessor bought. Even if what the predecessor bought worked, the Millenial will not keep on doing it. Best to stop trying to push them in this direction.
  3. Millenials want what is happening at retail for promo. Fidget Cubes, Popsockets, Fidget Spinners are all great examples of retail trends for promo. If you are not on-trend you will get crushed.

We Do It Differently, “We Do Weird Well!”

We specialize in the unique and the unusual, the trending and the social media savvy……in short we know what Millenials want. Don’t believe me? You sure you want to take that risk?

Here is what is trending. NOW! Call 888-908-1481 for info or email me John
