Are you looking for a good quality flashlight to give away in your next advertising campaign? The Aluminum LED Flashlight may be just what you’re looking for. Your logo will look great printed on the light’s barrel, and no one ever throws away a flashlight!
Why should you choose an LED (light emitting diode) flashlight? LEDs consume less energy, have a longer life span, and emit more light per watt than standard light bulbs. They’re an ideal choice when frequent on/off power is used. This flashlight has nine white LED lights and a push button to turn it on and off. It uses 3 AAA batteries, which are included.
Flashlights are used quite often, in many different ways. How many times have you been walking to your car at night and dropped your keys? Hunting for them can be tricky if you’re not in a well lit area. The power goes out during a storm, it’s dark in the house, and you need to find candles and matches. Without a flashlight, this can be really difficult. Or maybe you’re out camping and need to locate firewood for your campfire. If you’re searching after dark, you’ll need to use a flashlight to hunt for it. The list of uses can go on and on.
Flashlights make excellent giveaways. They’re a frequent choice of sporting goods dealers, as well as hardware and home improvement stores. Real estate agencies consider them a valuable promotional product, too. The Aluminum LED Flashlight works well as a promotional item at conventions and tradeshows, or almost any community event. Don’t forget store openings, sales events, and open houses. Wherever or however you choose to distribute them, these flashlights will definitely give you your money’s worth in advertising benefits.
There are some illnesses that touch almost everyone in one way or another. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we’d like to put forth some statistics. Did you know 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in their life? And it isn’t just happening to women; 2,150 men are diagnosed annually. Through a lot of public information campaigns, we know more about breast cancer and its staggering effects on patients, family members, and loved ones. Whether you take part in a Race for the Cure, a charity fundraiser, or other awareness campaign, you will begin to notice pink ribbons everywhere you look in the month of October.

Friendly competition through drawings, or even giving swag away as a gift to your employees, is an effective way to boost morale. These exciting products are imprinted with your company logo, a valuable method of marketing your company to your employees’ friends and family.

It gives a professional look and feel to the bags’ intriguing style, and can hold 18 beverages to cool off even the hottest of picnics. Plus, there are several colors to choose from. A well-insulated front compartment on the watertight main compartment holds even more picnic items. There are several promotional coolers to choose from!

These baskets spruce up any picnic with their professional appearance. External pockets provide easy storage of accessories, and a dual snap enclosure supplies a tight seal for those beverages.
How many company picnics just don’t have enough seating for everybody? A fun, polished way to fix this problem is a branded folding chair. These chairs are made of a high-quality tubular steel support and nylon for the seating with mesh cupholders in each arm. There are more than 10 colors to choose from, so you can pick the best fit for your company’s picnic. These chairs also have a carrying bag equipped with drawstring for easy travel.

We live in a world where not valuing your customer service is a severely poor idea; information travels too quickly for your brand to combat bad customer experiences! I’m really frustrated right now with my cell phone and trying to get a seemingly simple problem fixed. I’m quite confident that this could be taken care of effectively if somebody just took the time to care about my issue, but I don’t think I’ll be so lucky. Honestly though, I don’t blame the people on the other end of the line; I feel the problem is quite clearly with a compartmentalized system and poor treatment of customer service representatives.
My phone is having an issue connecting to the internet, it keeps telling me to have an authorized person contact the customer service 1-800 number. I called. I spent six minutes going through an automated system designed to spit me out to an appropriate representative to resolve my issue. The young gentleman informed me that due to system limitations he would not have access to help me and that the issue was something I could manage online myself. I was then transferred to online support and another digital queuing machine only to be spat out to another representative who walked me through the process of creating an online account to fix my own issue. Before the problem was resolved, she assumed that I had done all the tasks required, but since I was calling from my phone I would need to disconnect before I could investigate our success.
The system makes it impossible for me to find the same rep again. I go through the queue again; after explaining the issue (3rd time) to a new person they again remind me that they can’t fix it and it’s my job to do this online and then I am transferred again. More time… more digital queue. New young man in online support gets a lightly frustrated version of myself and a full explanation of the scenario; his response: “Well I can help you with that!” He then takes a few moments and claims that I should be good to go – again, I can’t check unless I am off the phone. I disconnect after thanking him.
Problem still remains… Mobile internet is not in my future it would seem. Looks like I’ll be switching to Verizon after all.
The moral: Information travels so fast these days – companies like major cellular providers can’t afford to continue this level of customer service. Business owners would be wise to realize that your customer interactions are the fundamental cornerstone of success while your customer service representatives, cashiers, baggers, and phone operators are the front line for your business – pay them well and make them value the experience of working for you.
Three words, The Pittsburgh Pirates. I love going to their games and getting score updates on my phone. I’ve been to about four games this year and hope to go to more next year.
What is your favorite thing to do? You should take a few hours or a day to remind yourself why life is so precious. What do I love? I love putting on my favorite hat and standing in the crowd cheering for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Why you may ask? Because I love the everything about it like the food, stadium, sport, and just getting out for the night.
Everyone loves free things!
In April, when I went to a game with my boyfriend Chris, we had awesome seats and a very memorable day. It happened to be really cold that day which is why I’m wearing a jacket in the picture. Before the game started, we walked past this free game called Spin-A-Wheel. All you had to do was show the workers your ID card and spin the wheel to win a prize. I ended up getting an Eco friendly Pirate’s tote bag, and Chris won a Pirate’s T-shirt.
I always try to get close seats between home plate and third base. Although, the Pirates probably aren’t your favorite team like they are mine, those seats are surely taken fast. Well that night, we had awesome seats which may be why Chris caught two foul baseballs from Andrew McCutchen without a glove! A few people sitting near us weren’t very happy and called us greedy. This is my favorite memory, we had so much fun that night and he even gave me both baseballs. That’s the first and only game we ever caught a baseball at. We are still looking to get them signed.
After the amazing fireworks for the Pirate’s win we left in my car with my Pirate floor mats, license plate frame, and clear stickers on my windows that still makes me think of that day when I look at it.
You can find any of those types of promo products at rushIMPRINT. Having the products we won still has us thinking about this night. Now I buy all of my fan gear from them.
Well as much as I don’t like many other sports, like he loves hockey, I guess I’ll have to repay him by going to a game.
So, you want to be wildly successful? I just figured out the key ingredient in ascending to where I want to be. I, you, all of us really, need to start focusing on the next two words: BE AWESOME!
“Awesome” might be one of the most overused and undervalued words in our language; it is used so much that people seem to have misplaced what the word actually means. It doesn’t take a degree in English Literature from a division II state school to know that “awesome” simply means to inspire awe, but nobody seems to really remember what “awe” means anymore. Dictionary.com tells us that “awe” is defined as, an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful, or the like: in awe of god; in awe of great political figures. WOW!
If you truly inspired awe in the people around you, then you would have no choice but to be truly and fully successful. Being awesome isn’t about doing cool tricks on a skateboard, or writing a great song; being awesome is about moving people at their very core – affecting them. Be grand, be powerful, and inspire those around you to admire the life you live; touch the lives of everyone you can by being the best person you can be. Those that are truly awesome don’t even have to tell people; awesome people just live good lives and the rest falls in to place.
Being awesome is a personal choice and it’s unlikely that anyone can make you awesome, but rushIMPRINT can definitely help you spread the word! If you are already awesome and need some help getting people to talk about it for you, then let us help you promote your business and your personal brand!
