How To Win Fans And Influence Posters

“There’s a hot new marketing platform called social media,” is how this article would have started if it were written in 2008. Ten years later, the phenomenon needs no introduction. Social media is the de facto face of the internet today and represents one of the primary ways people interact with each other—and with businesses.

The Pew Research Center reports that approximately 75 percent of U.S. adults use at least one form of social media on a regular basis, with most using multiple platforms several times a day. The average user will spend five years and four months on social media in their lifetime, according to Social

Five Steps To Boost Your Employer Brand

I recently read a news article about a Southwest Airlines flight attendant who had a young, female passenger with down syndrome. While speaking with the passenger during the flight, the flight attendant learned she had dreams of becoming a flight attendant. So, the Southwest employee started making calls, and just a few days later the young woman served by her side as a “flight attendant” assistant for a leg from Sacramento to Seattle, making her wish come true for a few short hours.

There was no incentive involved here for Southwest Airlines. There was

What’s your favorite travel destination? Wherever it is, the travel industry promotional products on display at the PPAI Expo will get you there in style and display your branding to travelers from around the world. My favorites include:

Any product that supports mobile phone use presents a great branding opportunity. That’s the message from this year’s PPAI Expo, where mobile phone-related promotional products were plentiful. Here are some of my favorites:

Mobility-screen cleaner set3-In-1 Tech Pack – Unless you handle your cell phone with gloves on, after a while you see more fingerprints than screen. The Galaxy screen cleaning cloth comes with a stylus and carry bag for $2.99 and the Delta Stylus Pen with Cleaner runs $1.49 to $2.99. Once a phone user gets used to a clean screen, the cleaners – and the promotional message they carry — come out on a regular basis.

My Favorite from PPAI

By On February 13, 2014 No Comments

This year’s Promotional Products Association International Expo in Las Vegas, featured some fantastic new products. One of my favorites was the Mobile Phone Popper, something all mobile phone users will love and millennials must have. The Popper is a collapsible plastic cone that attaches to the back of a cell phone to provide an impressive degree of enhanced functionality – and a great branding opportunity. Two fully imprintable Mobile Phone Poppers attached to the back of a cell phone provide a place to wind your ear-bud cord, a better grip for gamers, a better viewing angle for movie watchers and video chatters, and the perfect handle for taking photos – especially selfies!
