We're Not Going to Change It!
As we enter the new year, you can rest assured that not much will be changing. Personally, I like change, but concede that generally speaking, our industry does not do change well. 

Suppliers and and distributors appear to be pretty comfortable in how they reach the marketplace. For the most part, that's been effective, but like it or not things ARE changing. 

In this issues commentary, Who Let the Air Out of the Balloon?, I talk a bit about change and explain why we are NOT doing a complete makeover of our PPAI Award Winning FreePromoTips.com website. It includes a bit of wisdom from the amazing Seth Godin


Those who are going to the PPAI Expo will have a great time at the Awards Ceremony Tuesday night at the House of Blues honoring some great companies. Don't miss seeing the Industry All Star Band.

FreePromoTips.com SuccessFit at the PPAI Expo is rocking as well with a PPAI Board Member Challenge raising money for the 
Promotional Products Education Foundation
See below for new details on what we are doing and how you can be a part of it.

Here's to a great New Year!

Who Let the Air Out of the Balloon?

At the 2015 PPAI Expo, FreePromoTips.com will be getting a technology award for our website. It's an honor that all the things we are doing for suppliers, distributors and the industry are being recognized by PPAI through these prestigious awards. 

This is positive for the companies that understand and support what FreePromoTips.com does. Even though we could update the site, we're not going to change it. 

Learn why in a thought provoking Seth Godin blog post.
