Who is the IDIOT that paid $35 for a folding drinking straw?

Who is the IDIOT that paid $35 for a folding drinking straw?

That idiot would be me!

There are a few folding reusable stainless steel drinking straws on the market including LAST STRAW, the stainless steel, food-safe, collapsible, reusable straw specifically designed for the promotional products distributor.

We decided to test all of them… including this one… which came in at an astounding $34.50 for ONE SINGLE STRAW ($14.50 for shipping!). The delivery of my single $35 straw is not expected until NOVEMBER!

We are the Factory and the Supplier. We ONLY sell to DISTRIBUTORS! We know what we are doing!

We only deal with distributors and have for years. We know what we are doing and we know what you need!

We do work a little differently.

We have people on the ground in the factories in China and they dig around looking for the best products (not the cheapest) that can be delivered quickly, have great logo capabilities and are tested and meet all safety standards. Often they are from the same factory where the brand name one is being made. Are we smarter? Nope… (after all, we did buy a $35 straw!). It’s just that we source and buy a whole lot smarter!

We have built a business model based on sourcing and selling the trends, bringing in everything by air in as little as a week and reducing costs so we can pass savings on to you, the distributor. As we like to say:

 

“We Do Weird Well!

The Folding Collapsible Reusable Drinking Straw, B2B Promo to be Biggest Promo for late 2018!

I know the the Folding Collapsible Reusable Drinking Straw will be B2B Promo’s biggest idea for late 2018.

I know this sounds a little over the top. But I know this from experience and science!

2 years ago, we were onto Fidget Spinners 4 months before anyone else. We spotted the trend in kids early, we did our research and then had our product source lined up before we took a single order. Click here to read the Campaign Live article about our success.

We are very good at spotting trends and analyzing the data to reaffirm our suspicions.

Stats for Folding Reusable Drinking Straws:

I am a bit of a stats geek so everyday I do a thorough check on the various Promo Motive sites and social media pages. During the past 3 weeks, the stats for folding drinking straws have shown a nearly 300% increase! See below.

How to Sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw

If you think that selling a $5 net drinking straw is a tough sell think again!

In fact there are folding straws on the market that sell for $30 or more… Check out this Kickstarter program that sold over 80,000 units at $30 a piece!

“The selling points on the folding straw is not all about the function of it, it’s about the emotional appeal of it!”

First point:

This all started with a Turtle video. The storyline is simple: ecologists and scientists working in Costa Rica come across a Turtle in distress. They pull it aboard and find a plastic straw stuck in its nose. WARNING: Video has disturbing images. 

Second Point:

After over 30 million views of the video and a greater understanding of how billions of plastic straws were ending up in the oceans and staying undegradable for up to 5000 years, cities and countries banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.

Read about cities and companies banning straws including McDonalds!

Third Point:

It’s not about why would anyone pay $10 for a straw, but more importantly it’s about what it says about a brand to have their logo on a folding reuseable drinking straw.

Your client’s logo on a LAST STRAW says to the world that the client cares about the environment, is on top of the latest trends and lastly, but not least, they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem and being a part of the solution!

Some Distributors say that “No One Will Use It!”

These distributors may be sort of right but at the same time COMPLETELY WRONG! Many people may not use it but millions will buy it!

The Last Straw folding reusable drinking straw will be a massive marketing statement for your clients. It will say to the world that they are an eco-friendly, trend-setting company. Who wouldn’t want to be this?

 

Delivery is 2 weeks and includes FREE SHIPPING and NO SET UPs!

Our goal is to be the innovator of trending logo’d swag

The promo swag business prides itself on being innovative but at the same time is mired in repetitive behavior that promotes safe over innovative. Why is this wrong?

 

The promotional products business is a 27 Billion dollar industry whose stated goal is to provide creative marketing solutions, yet the reality of this industry is that it is mired in the promotion of tired and safe ideas.

 

Promotional products or swag occupy a unique place in our collective mindset. It is one of the more ubiquitous office accessories and one to which a significant portion of the budget is allocated. However, its true purpose seems to have been lost and is now overridden by the bland and the boring.

popsocket trade show promotional products and b2b swag

Get your business logo on a pop socket for trade show promotional products and b2b swag. Pop sockets are the top selling promotional product for trade shows in 2018. Wholesale, imprinted and factory direct promotional pop sockets are the perfect swag for conference giveaway, B2B marketing and trade show swag.

 

Historically speaking, the idea of promotional products is found in its name: promotion. The first major purpose of swag was for trade show giveaways and B2B marketing.

Trade show giveaways are still one of the key reasons for the existence of swag. Its purpose is really, really simple.

 

“The purpose of swag for trade shows is to get people to come to your specific booth and to go away from your booth with something that reminds them of who you are!”

 

If you agree with the above quote, then the obvious conclusion is that whatever you put your logo on that you give away, it better be eye-catching and innovative. The top trade show giveaway is a pen. A crappy leaky pen is NOT very innovative or trendy!

The reason the pen is the number #1 giveaway is because the people who generally sell you your swag are not very in touch with trends or innovation. Indeed, some are, but the vast majority is not.

 

“ASI (the Ad Specialty Institute) says the average age of the promo resellers (distributors) is 57! Is the average 57 year old somewhere you would look to for innovation and trend awareness?”

 

This is why you should consider Trade Show 8. TS8 is a trend oriented promotional products business that looks for trending swag ideas that can have your logo imprinted or engraved on them. We specialize in trade show swag, B2B marketing and unique trending swag.

Get Your Logo on it for Less. Factory Direct Promotional Products for Less.

Promotional product professionals deserve a break. They deserve to make more money for all of the effort they put into their difficult work.

The business of selling and delivering customized promotional products often takes a bad rap but what is more problematic is that distributors are often doing it for very little profit.

ASI Distributors often deal with overly demanding clients and rush orders with unreasonable timelines. All of this would be fine if their profit was worth it but often they will do all of this work for very little in return.

“We believe that distributors deserve to make more than a lousy ‘C’!”

Promotional product ideas are changing fast in 2018 and in the latter half of 2018 there are a few new marketing trends that are climbing the charts.

There seems to be a clear and newly emerging marketing trend in the field of promotional swag in the latter half of 2018: almost all of the new promotional ideas seem to somehow involve your smart phone.

POP socket: The first is the pop socket. This ubiquitous round disc is the perfect place to launch your logo or brand from. Inexpensive and easily seen by hundreds of people each day. The round pop socket is the leading promotional idea.

POP socket square shape: Not every logo is round or even looks good on a round substrate so now there’s a fix for the that: the square pop socket.
