  BIZARRE THOUGHTS


Spring Is In The Air


With the first day of spring behind us and daylight savings underway the anticipation of warmer weather and all the things that go with it, have given me a much needed boost of energy.  BBQ's, Swimming, Camping and Roller Blading with the family is just around the corner and I can't wait.

Golf is another past time I enjoy and can't wait to get back at.  Golf and Promotional Products go together like bread and butter.  Every successful Golf Event has some type of Promotional Product to back it up.

Golf Related Promotional Products have steadily increased in volume year after year, from Golf Tournaments to just basic give-a-ways to employees and customers you can't miss with a great Golf Related Promotional Products.

One of our suppliers (Norwood Line) has put together some of the best Golf related items available for 2006.  This 24 page catalog has just about everything you'll need to promote any Golf Event.  You'll also find many items you can use to reward those top employees and what better way to show your appreciation to those ever so valuable customers.

  CASE STUDIES


Class:
Tutorial Programs

Type: Under $10 Per Recipient

Objective: To reinforce instructions to retailers.

Strategy and Execution: Unlike other brands, Claussen's pickles needed to be refrigerated, thereby attaining the crunchiness that consumers expected. But consumer complaints indicated to management that retailers sometimes neglected to store the pickles cold.

Claussen management addressed the problem through retailer education. Memos were mailed to 1,800 supermarket meat buyers thanking them for their business and reminding them of the importance of keeping the pickles refrigerated. To reinforce this message, the memo was accompanied by a special mug with an embedded refrigerant that helped keep beverages cold. Imprint copy ("cold, crisp & delicious") on the mug alluded to what was expected of the company's properly stored brand.


Results: "Extremely positive" reaction from recipients, according to a Claussen spokesperson.

  BIZARRE FUN FACTS


Every winning quarterback from Super Bowl 6 through Super Bowl 14 wore the jersey number 12. - Sporting News, 3/17/06

The town of Ismay, Montana briefly changed its name to become Joe, Montana, in 1993 for one football season, then extended the gag for another year. The name change worked out well for what was then the smallest incorporated town in the state. Ismay raised more than $70,000 selling Joe, Montana souvenirs. The Ismayans, or Joeys (whatever you want to call them) used the money to build a combination community hall-firehouse. - Billings Gazette, 11/20/05

Loving County, Texas is the emptiest county in the United States. The population in 2004 was 52 people. Yet it still received $30,000 in anti-terrorism funds from Homeland Security. - New York Times, 2/25/06

Americans spent $14,300,000,000 on dog food in 2004. That's $10,000,000,000 more than on baby food the same year. - The Week Magazine, 3/10/06
