From the desk of... The LinJen Promotions Creative Team RE: Specials: It Never Hurts to Ask
  Solutions #70

When you’re selecting the products that will carry your message and achieve your marketing goals, cost is always a key part of the equation – maybe not the most important element, but it’s definitely in the mix.

As people who run a business, we definitely understand budgetary concerns. But we also know that choosing the “right” product is what ultimately matters, and that’s not just a cost issue. Success involves a number of factors, all contributing to what we call “perceived value” – the connection, satisfaction and excitement recipients feel when they hold that item in their hands. Still, if you can save some money along the way, all the better. And that’s where careful planning and a little flexibility can make a big difference.

Manufacturers and retailers occasionally offer discounts in order to move excess inventory or bump up sales. This industry is no different. So it doesn’t hurt to ask about specials and sale items when putting together a promotion.

With literally hundreds of thousands of promotional products out there, chances are you can save some money, as long as you’re willing to give us as much advance notice as possible and be flexible about what items you use. Together, we can keep you on budget and on target. Feel free to give us a call at 708-478-8222 or send us an e-mail to discuss this further!
