Promotional Water Pouches – a New Invention?

picture or a few colourful promotional water pouchesSometimes I sit at my desk and pluck a promotional product off the shelf to write about. I sit, staring at it’s form, acknowledging it’s function and the value it adds to our lives, from a practical viewpoint and as a marketing aid. Sometimes it takes a few cups of coffee to kick-start the cerebral cortex into bitch-slapping my hippocampus and forming a cohesive argument as to why a promotional mug makes perfect sense for B2B or B2C.

They’ve stocked their table with carefully chosen promotional giveaways to influence and win the attendees’ hearts. And what happens to all those branded items?

Environmentally Friendly Promotional Products

picture of an environmentally friendly robe made from bambooSimple trade-off really; change the way we live to affect a different outcome. Thing is, it requires an investment in something we can’t yet see, hear, taste, smell  or feel…it’s our future. And yet, we plough plenty of money into pensions, college funds and insurance policies every day, in the event we’ll need to draw on these funds later in life. Continue reading
