Told my mother that I would look around and see if I could find some cool, different, interesting and exciting promotional products for her and my dad to use at the next Trade Show that they have signed up for in order to get more business generated for the mail and packaging store that isn’t doing so well during these horrible economic times. They opened this store about 8 years ago and it was taking off pretty well at first and then our wonderful government had to go and screw things up so badly that most people are experiencing tragedies left and right. They worked so hard to get this small business set up and working that it just kills me to see them losing money month after month and I really want to be able to something, anything to try and help in any way that I can.
I have been to a few Trade Shows in the past, they are a great way to drum up business and network with other folks in the same boat. I’ve seen plenty of promotional items that I thought were just a complete waste of time and money as well as finding some pretty cool giveaways along the way. I mean we have all seen our fair share of promotional candy, logo pens and pencils, promo golf tees and key chains. I want to find something that will really catch a person’s eye and something that they will really use, enjoy and keep around in order to keep the business name on the front line.
Off the top of my head I am thinking of looking to find promotional stress relievers, we could all use some stress relief these days. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors these days. Check out this cool standing pig stress reliever that I just found online. I have always had a thing for pigs, but I don’t think my folks would be impressed so I have a lot of looking around to do the next couple of days.
