  • The previous slide is a question that I get asked or approached with all the time. As a professional Promotional Products Consultant (P.P.C.) that question bothers me a great deal. There are a large number of people that are in the business of selling mugs and pens and “T” shirts and other things cheap. But my response to the person asking that question is Excuse me?. Why would you want to represent your company with a cheap product that is branded with your name on it and expect your clients or customers to be willing to use it regularly and have a good feeling about the quality of service and products that you sell,?Having a professional Promotional Products Consultant (P.P.C.) is a choice. Any Promotional product company can and will sell you cups and pens and all those other things that you see everyday but a P.P.C.will help you decide which product may work best for the situation you are trying to address and help you build your business and still get a respectable R.O.I.

  • What do all these pictures have in common?
    They all are brands or logos for a company, organization or event.
    They were used on a promotional product to advertise the event, organization, company or product.
  • Research Shows ...

    More positive overall image,
    More positive perception of the business,
    Higher likelihood of recommending the business as well as a higher likelihood of patronizingthebusiness.
    A 2004 study of business travelers at DFW Airport revealed
    71 percent of business people reported having received a promotional product in the last 12 months.
    Of that group, 33.7 percent had the item on their person and
    76.1 percent could recall the advertiser's name!
    52 percent of that group did business with the advertiser after receiving the promotional product and
    52.1 percent reported their impression of the advertiser was more favorable after receiving the item.
