Digital Download with a New Spin

I'm a big fan of the Digital Download card. A promotion that not only gets my message into my prospects hand at an event, but even after, and that is interactive - gets my vote!

If you're not familiar with a digital download card, let me give you a brief summary. Usually it's a plastic "business card" with your message/information on one side and instructions on how to redeem the download on the back. The download could be for anything from a few songs, photo prints, movie tickets, phone time, etc., you decide. So for your prospect to redeem the card, they go to your website, follow a link, fill out their information or even a survey and then get their song, etc.

Now here is where this gets really cool. CFS Promotions has now an Instant Win Mystery Promotion to their cards. Say you get 1000 cards with one song on them. 990 of those cards will have a code for the song download, 6 will have a code for a $20 Starbucks card, and 4 will have a code for a new iPod. Think about it, you give the card to a visitor at your trade show booth and tell them it could be worth an iPod. Do you think they'll take the time to visit your site? My bet is YES!

Prime Placement

Why is it, that when looking for a thank you gift, trade show give away, or sales call drop off people don't think of coasters? Almost everyone drinks coffee, water, etc. at their desk. If they don't have a coaster they either end up with a wet, damaging ring, or place a napkin under their cup. This is a prime place for your message to be. Each time they place or remove their cup they see your logo.

Coasters come in all sorts of material. Leather, brass, ceramic, rubber, sandstone, glass... the list goes on and on. There is a line that I happen to like quite a bit. It's from Buntingware. They are made from an absorbent ceramic material and are rubber backed. The coasters can be imprinted in full color or have an image debossed on the face. You can order them in sets or in bulk or even pair them with a matching mug. They are also made in the USA.

Think about this prime placement next time you want to be remembered while your client or prospect is at their desk.

Bamboo Shirts! Really?

Last week I became familiar with this line. It's the Bamboo Collection from AKWA. Golf/Polo shirts and t-shirts made from Bamboo fiber.

Did you know that Bamboo is 100% biodegradable and doesn't harm the environment. Naturally grown without the use of pesticides and fertilizers. The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is filled with micro gaps and holes to promote superior moisture absorption and ventilation. Keeps you cool in hot weather while possessing a permanent anti-bacterial agent.

Most of this line also happens to be USA made!
