Marketing and Promotional Products Ideas to Promote Your Business

  • What Else Are You Lowering If You Lower Your Prices Too Low?

    Lowering your pricing too much is like lowering your pantsBeing competitive with your pricing is extremely important in the business world. However, lowering your prices too much can be harmful to not only your bottom line, but also to your customer service.

    In the promotional products industry, pricing discounts are based upon the quantity of products ordered. The more you order, the bigger discount you receive...up to a certain point. Eventually, no matter what the quantity, the price simply can't go any lower. (See the cartoon below).

    This pricing structure is similar to many other industries in which larger volumes merit larger discounts. However, to deliver quality service to your customers, you have to have quality employees. And to have quality employees, you have to pay good wages. Therefore, you need enough margins in your product or service pricing to compensate your hard-working employees who are delivering that stellar customer service.

    Funny Promotional Products CartoonConsumers demand excellent customer service; however, many consumers don't think about the cost involved to sustain quality workers. Therefore, I challenge consumers to weight out the cost of poor service when considering pricing. Choosing uber-low pricing that is too good to be true will likely result in low quality products and poor service.

    At Perfect Imprints, we opt for fair pricing. While our pricing is very competitive, it is not always the lowest and it's certainly not the highest. Our goal is to provide a service that goes far beyond just selling promotional products.

    The value our employees bring to every transaction includes expertise from years of experience in the promotional products industry, professional graphic design, education from college degrees, on-the-job training, continuing education, and a genuine desire to help your marketing campaign to be as successful as possible.

    We aim to personally connect with each of our clients to develop a working relationship built on trust, reliability, and a strong working knowledge about what fuels your business. Try finding that with the bargain priced websites.

    Our commitment to world class customer service has been our top priority since we started the company in 1999. We look forward to helping you succeed in your marketing efforts for years to come.

    We are social, and would love for you to follow us on our various social media sites and participate in our conversation so we can get to know you even better!

  • The Importance of Product Safety With Promotional Products

    In the same way that retail manufacturers should be concerned with product safety, so should promotional products manufacturers, distributors, and companies who use promos. In past news, there have been countless recalls in the retail & promotional products industry that caused devastating financial blows to all those involved in the transaction. While most of these incidents have been companies that contracted directly with China and other countries, no one is immune. That's why it is so important to take the precautions BEFORE you buy promotional products.

    To limit the chances of product safety issues for the promotional products that your company gives away, it's important to only buy products that have been tested to meet or exceed the regulatory standards that are legally required. However, product safety testing is just one of many components to make sure products are safe.

    The Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) is a non-profit, independent accrediting agency that specifically serves the promotional products industry. They formed in 2008 and to date have certified 34 out of the 4000+ suppliers in the industry.

    QCA is a voluntary program that manufacturers must choose to follow the accreditation process, which is based on 5 major pillars:

    • Product Safety
    • Product Quality
    • Supply Chain Security
    • Environmental Stewardship
    • Social Compliance

    Suppliers that meet these standards can become QCA certified. If you are concerned with product safety, then you should certainly buy promotional products manufactured by QCA-certified suppliers.

    Here's a short video about protecting your brand by buying QCA certified promos.

    This short documentary above shows the necessity of creating and distributing safe, reliable products and maintaining a compliant work environment within the promotional product industry.

    Note: If suppliers are NOT QCA-Certified, that doesn't necessarily mean their products are unsafe. The products that come to the U.S. market should at least meet minimum, legal requirements. If you are unsure, ask for testing results for the promos you want to buy and, of course, only purchase promotional products through reputable and trustworthy companies.

  • Do You Ride Your Bicycle With Traffic or Against Traffic?

    Bike Safety Promotional ProductsA couple of days ago, I was on a bike ride with my two daughters and son. We were on the right side of the road riding with the flow of traffic like we normally do. We came upon an elderly man who was walking on the same side as us but against the flow of traffic. He was one of those walkers who carries a big stick around when walking...yeah, you know the type.

    Well, he begins yelling at us to get on the left side of the road against traffic. I politely said, "No sir, we are supposed to ride with the flow of traffic. He began angrily waiving his hiking stick around telling me why I was wrong. I told my kids just to continue what they were doing and ride on.

    During the remainder of our ride, I began questioning Continue reading
