Buyers Have Many Choices...
  
Our last FreePromoTips e-newsletters have covered a variety content that struck a nerve. The conversations have continued on in various online forums offering some stimulating discussion. Business models are emerging that challenge the way our industry has functioned for years.  
 
In this issue, we address a business model that we have not yet addressed. Suppliers and distributors have a choice as to how they want to do business. Enjoy our article:
What Do Some Buyers Want...Cheap Crap Online!
 
This article touches on a few things, including the benefits of Promotional Products Work Week. Suppliers and distributors around the country showcased the benefits of our marketing medium. You can see some of the activities that went on around the country by searching the hashtag #PPWWeek on Twitter and Facebook. If you weren't involved this year, don't miss the opportunity next year. 
 
I look forward to seeing many of you at Expo East, which will be an awesome event in Atlantic City, May 19-21st. I will be participating in the Howard Alan Blum 5K on Wednesday morning. Those who can't attend are still able to support the great work of The SAAGNY Foundation can participate in the "VIRTUAL" 5K. Information on this event is below. 
 
Make it a great day!

Make a Difference...
Wherever You Are!
If you going Expo East, we invite you to join us on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City for the actual Howard Alan Blum 5K, but if you won't be there, you can still be a part of it!

To raise awareness and support 
for the SAAGNY Foundation we've created a "VIRTUAL run/walk" for this 5K. You can participate in the run...wherever you are! 
   

But what if you are not a runner? No problem!
 
Since this is a "VIRTUAL" event you can do WHATEVER you want!  You can be watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you can think about doing a 5K from the couch. You can ride a motorcycle on a 5K...whatever?? 
It's 
YOUR VIRTUAL
event. Have fun with it!

What Some Buyers REALLY Want...
Cheap Crap Online! 

We've talked about evolving business models that have created uproar in recent commentaries. 

 

First we addressed this in The Wave...This Issue is not Going Away

 

In a fun, tongue-in-cheek story, Snoopes Promo Uncovers the Truth About Bad Companies, we introduced a web resource dedicated to revealing truth in our industry. 

 

Our commentary, A Condemned Supplier Tells the Truth, featured ADG President, Bill Mahre sharing the truth about how his company operates. Now we discuss another business model...buying cheap crap online!
