Recommended Products: The Behind-the-Scenes Feature You May Not Be Watching

By Leslie Ayuko on 5 Nov 2019

You’re needing some items from the store. List in hand, you get in your car, head to the local grocery store, and walk in determined to stick to your list -- nothing more, nothing less.

Humboldt Strong: How online stores connect communities

By Hayley Bell on 24 Sep 2019

 

When the news of the bus crash first came to Mike & Shannon, they were in total shock. 

They spent the rest of the evening- late into the night- calling and texting friends and neighbors in the community, trying to gather information about everything that happened. What they found was that a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey team had been hit, causing the death of 16 people (including the head coach and 10 players) and injuring 13 more. These were people they knew and loved, and they quickly realized that this would rock their whole community- just a small town of about 6,000 people.

Waking up the next morning, Mike and Shannon decided they wanted to do something to help. Being the owners of Spotlight Sport & Corporate Wear Ltd., they knew they could do one thing really well- print shirts.

By Leslie Ayuko on 20 Aug 2019

 

Working with PPD-specific accounts, I am often asked, “How can I make this online store successful for my client’s order?” It shows me that those in the Promotional Products industry really seek for success and want to do right by the clients they serve. Luckily, making an online store order successful for a client follows a similar pattern to the success of promotional product marketing that you may already be familiar with.

In 2016, PPAI Exclusive Research revealed the powerful impact that promotional products have in brand awareness, and how vital this kind of marketing approach is in today’s society. They measured these findings against the 5 R’s of promotional products as follows:
