We Make You Memorable! We are a promotional marketing company that focuses on the proper use and implementation of promotional products. We do this by using effective, useful promotional products that will keep your name is in front of your prospects and clients at the time when they would be in most dire of your products or services. When your clients see our products, they will remember you!
There are key benefits that promotional products have over every other forms of advertising. These include:
Targeted Marketing – there is little to no waste, in product or marketing dollar, when implemented properly.
Long Term Exposure – some products featuring your message or logo have the potential to last for years in front of your targeted recipient. Fridge magnets have been known to last for literally decades. Can the same be said for a newspaper ad?
Direct Message Tie In – when the message becomes part of the product, it creates a longer lasting memory hook for the recipient. For example, if you use a deck of playing cards with your logo you can say to the recipient “This deck of cards represents that you will never get lost in the shuffle with us. The Ace up our sleeve is the service we provide to our customers, which makes dealing with us a smart bet.”
That creates a much more memorable experience than just saying “Here’s a deck of cards with our name on it.”
Endorsement by the Recipient – when a recipient uses something with your logo, they are endorsing your company and saying “I like these guys”. Think about it… would you wear a t-shirt that has the logo of an organization or product you don’t like? Sports teams are an excellent example of this. You won’t see a Montreal Canadiens fan wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs cap, or vice versa… not willingly anyway.

Am I Priced to Sell?
Attracting buyers is the name of the game. As a seller, you have two goals:
- To get the most money possible
- To sell as quickly as you can.
Be realistic. Price is the number one factor that most home buyers use in determining which homes to view. Although the price is set by you, the seller, the value of the home is determined by the buyer. Don’t allow your enthusiasm to warp your judgement and lead to overpricing – a mistake you can’t afford to make.
