It’s More Than Just Promotional Merchandise; Its a Tool

Here at Th!nk we get to interact and chat with some incredibly brilliant and creative people.  We love to hear their ideas and see how they are using promotional merchandise as a tool to continuously stay in front of their clients. Man, do they do a good job.  Below are just a few snippets of just how genius our customers are.

Impress Your Client’s With Custom Branded Gifts That Require a Follow Up Item.

“Aw, thanks..a…..cheeseboard..with your logo?” Wait! There is a card: please select your favorite assortment of cheese from the list and we will hand deliver it in the next two weeks.  Now you have captured your clients attention!  Or a set of grilling utensils followed up with fresh surf and turf.  However; lets be honest, In the south, properly prepared pulled pork is the best way to grab your clients attention.

Custom Branded Cheeseboard

Hardwood Cheese Board

As Low As $11.66

This custom engraved cheeseboard will look great in your clients kitchen.  It is classy, functional, and an excellent conversation starter.  Not only does it function as a cheeseboard but it could be used as a cutting board.

Laser Engraved Custom Grilling Set

BBQ Grill Set

As Low As $15.50

Who wouldn’t get excited about using these bad boys over a charcoal grill cooking a Cowboy Ribeye thick enough to make John Wayne proud? Or if you prefer lighter fare, they will do the trick for chicken, fish, vegetable kabobs etc.. This laser engraved stainless steel grilling set has it all: serrated spatula, stainless steel brush with scraper, bottle opener, and tongs.  And a gift box to make it all nice and pretty.

Your clients have chosen to align themselves with your company for one reason or another.  It could be based on price, expertise, responsiveness, attention to detail, trust etc.. All of which are critical to a good working relationship.  However; I would venture to say that most clients stay with you long term because of the experience.  Create a delightful experience and your clients will NOT leave you.

 

 

2014 US Open: Is Your Promotional Merchandise up to “Par”

In June, the U.S. Open returns to North Carolina for the third time in 16 years.  The legendary Pinehurst #2 will host players in what is often cited as the most mentally taxing golfing event of the year.  Designed in 1907 by Donald Ross, the evil genius, this course has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America.  In 2014, this course will make history again, serving as host to the U.S. Open and Women’s Open Championships in consecutive weeks.  When anyone who knows anything about golf hears “Pinehurst #2” they think of Payne Stewarts legendary “fist punch” or associate it with class.

You see, Pinehurst #2 elicits memories of greatness that most want to have associated with their company or brand.  When someone hears your company or brand name, what are they thinking?  How are you leveraging each opportunity, like the U.S. Open, to grow this image?
