How to Find the Best Promotional Items and Corporate GiftsAs a business owner or corporate gift buyer you know how hard it can be to find just the right promotional items or business gifts. Do a search on Google and you have literally millions of choices staring you in the face. It's hard to find the best deal on the best item. But all that's about to change. I worked in the industry for years and I can tell you that there's a lot of money "left on the table" when you're looking at higher end products and plenty of "overstock" options when looking for the good old cheap promotional items like pens and key chains. For this article I'll focus on corporate gifts and business promotional items. More specifically let's look at those that can be laser engraved since these often carry a higher perceived value by the recipients (when fine woods are engraved, etc.) The first thing you want to do is get some inside information on what the promotional company is paying for a product versus what it charg
Is Your Plastic Water Bottle Poisoning You?You may not know for 20 years if your plastic water bottle is poisoning you. Right now the FDA says only that it will keep monitoring data to see if the agency needs to take regulatory action. It could be 20 or 30 years before they truly know the effects on the human body from the toxins leached from plastic water bottles. For now no serious action is being taken regarding the very serious health hazards presented by plastic water bottles, plastic food storage containers, and more. Here's why your plastic water bottle may be unsafe: Most bottled water comes in polyethylene terephthalate bottles, indicated by a number 1, PET, or PETE on the bottle's bottom. While some scientists believe that these bottles are generally safe at room temperature, when they are stored at warm temperatures, the story changes. When the bottles are warmed, they begin to quickly leach chemicals into the water. It doesn't matter if the bottles ar

This is the first rule of marketing / promoting at retail. Online sales abide by the same procedure. The advantage of selling online is that expenses are considerably reduced; as are the initial outlay in commencing your business.

Green Promotions: Tote Bags?Environmental preservation and 'going green' are perhaps some of the most popular buzzwords nowadays, especially when it comes to commercial organizations such as manufacturers. Let's face it, we have very limited resources on our planet earth, and we are quickly running out of them. Clean air, clean water, even land itself is a scarce resource now. Everyone is worried about conserving the environment and saving the world for our future generations. Businesses need to promote themselves, but is it necessary that they do it at the expense of the environment and our natural resources? Green Promotions? Promotional activities are always good for business, but have you really considered what non-monetary costs are involved? Sure, giveaways are a great way to communicate your products or service to the public but that wastes a lot of natural resources. One alternative would be to rely on electronic sources but that doesn't always work eithe
Custom Promotional Items - Make Them WorkHow you can use Custom Promotional Items The best thing about custom promotional items is that you have a good amount of options. If you choose the wrong promo item, than you might do more harm than good. You have to be willing to spend more money on a product that will work instead of settling for a sub par promotional item. Your organization should pick a product that will work for it in a positive way. Say you work with school a lot, than try and pick something that schools can use to there benefit. Maybe binders? Custom Sweatbands for their schools basketball team? Maybe something for the professors to wear around. Once they have these they will be extremely appreciative and your company will get known throughout your community. The previous was an example of a small way in which you can use a promo item. A big example would be buying 20,000 headbands for New Years Eve in NYC. This unique promotional object would have your logo and a web ad
