International or Internet shopping can be a “buyer-beware” and potentially costly experience.
The repercussions of receiving incorrect product are not only about lost dollars, they’re also the panic that results in things not happening as expected! The short-term result might be embarrassing; but the long-term effect of missing the deadlines or potential sales opportunities could be disastrous. We’ve eliminated the fear factor of international purchasing and distribution three ways:
- Our international manufacturers are required to adhere to social compliance rules and put our products through third party, independent tests prior to being released.
- A pre-production sample is produced in advance to ensure the colours, the size, the materials and the costs all match your expectation and requirements. Only once we’re 100% confident you’re satisfied do we go into production.
- Every country has its own rules and regulations with regards to international exchange. We watch currencies and have professionals in place to advise and counsel on product ingredients and potential border-crossing challenges. Keeping alert means doing it right the first time.
If you have multiple locations or simply wish to create a custom promotional program to go anywhere around the globe, our international expertise will serve you well. Benefit from the economy of scale plus continuity of your brand with a single, creative source.
Charity walk T-shirts are great to give participants bragging rights.
That same Tee could sabotage a great marketing effort and zap much-needed funds from the budget. We all know that an XL Tee doesn’t fit everyone. Plus giving the Tee at the start of the race means many people don’t wear it and the sponsors on the back don’t get the visibility they paid for.
What’s the answer?
Stop the insanity.
As Albert Einstein said, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. So, if you want to get more love from your participants (engagement), and give more love to your sponsors (loyalty), perhaps it’s time to run your fundraising events differently.
Our “Hugs from the Stars” program generates deliberate results and love for both the corporation and the charity. It’s a 3-way promotion to rally a corporate team – or several of them – and generate some excitement as you build.
It’s systematic, targeted and fun.
Whether you’re a volunteer with a one-off golf event or an Executive Director requiring continuity and explosive results with a calendar of initiatives, we can partner with you to maximize your communications efforts and get the most bang for your fundraising buck.
Promotional marketing is often part of the branding sequence with branded merchandise used as giveaways. Our approach goes beyond branding and actually inspires behavior change.
We use promotional products as communication tools. The brilliance behind this tangible media is the understanding that every action starts with a decision. And behind every decision is a person. Tangible media tells a story about your brand and connects with people on an emotional level – one-to-one – as they are always given as gifts.
Our process is to identify:
- Your brand essence
- Your goals and mission
- Your target audience
Once identified, we then employ this tangible media with appropriate methodology to connect and create a positive experience. Tangible media has the power to tell a story about your company, your mission, your desire with staying power, and inspire positive change.
Effectively we can:
- Enhance your brand
- Invite individuals to an event
- Support a web initiative
- Create loyalty
Let’s get one thing clear. A brand is not a logo.
A brand is an experience. A brand is what your clients, your stakeholders, and your staff, see, feel, and think about your company and your products.
Branding is changing.
It’s no longer that a company can deliver a message through traditional advertising and the customer or consumer buys it. The internet has changed all of that.
Consider the words of Marshall McLuhan spoken in 1964, “Your medium IS your message” and know that your brand is constantly being evaluated, massaged and shared. Much has changed about the control you have over your brand.
That being the case, let’s give them something to talk.
Adding a message about your brand or a call to action on your gifts adds meaning. Oh, and the more senses we can appeal to, the great the impact! We refer to our business as Sensory Media.
If you’re a marketing or brand manager this service will make you a corporate hero.

Whether it’s a sales team, a production team, a fundraising team, a dealership team, a franchise team, or corporate team, they all require the identical tools to thrive.
If you’re an H.R. Manager, a V.P. Sales or a Business Leader you know that once the goal and plan are established the next steps include clear communication, the right tools, and an incentive and reward component.
Since communication is a two-way street, it’s critical to communicate the goals, plans, and rewards in a way that meets the receiver head-on. It’s also not enough to simply announce the goal once.
Regular communication pieces to maintain engagement – especially if your goal is an annual dealer incentive or long-term sales target – to ensure the enthusiasm, and ultimately the results, are the highest they can be.
Promotions that inspire a desired behaviour are the most important and they’re easy to identify. They’re the ones that keep the goal in front, are integrated in our daily routine, and help us be more effective in achieving success.
We live for praise and recognition! In fact, it’s stated in survey after survey that we want our work to count for something more than a pay cheque. Establishing the right incentive to match the goal and the team (as big as a trip and as small as a pizza party) then celebrating that reward brings your team even closer together.
Contemplating bigger goals? Include these sessions into your next team-building event.
Creating a powerful team requires that they learn to communicate effectively with one another. There’s no eye-opener like the Insights Discovery Session led by Paul Fini.
This day is designed to help teams identify strengths to create more synergistic environments; people align to common goals and objectives.
It’s a full day seminar that includes 40 page personalized profiles for each of the participants and dynamic activities to help everyone work more effectively together.
Top it off with the “Goal Achiever” workshop.
We’re certified providers of this mind-busting program developed by Bob Proctor of Life Success Productions; featured philosopher in “The Secret”. This session blows the lid off traditional thinking and promotes clear thinking and accountability of goals.
Whether yours is a big goal or a small goal, it’s your goal and deserves attention. Together we can discover which elements work in alignment with one another, your mission, to Succeed Deliberately™.

Why do you go to Trade Shows?
When we ask our clients why they are displaying at a trade show they typically answer with:
“We just have to be there” or
“We want to create awareness” or
“Because we attend every year.”
Do any of these statements appear to drive R.O.I.? We didn’t think so either.
We’ve designed a 3-step process to zero-in on the business you want with a duplicatable process that ensures success….time after time.
