MARCH MADNESS PRODUCTS


There’s a reason why 5.9 million people played a bracket contest on ESPN last year – because they’re mad for March Madness. Heat up any company, bar, restaurant, sports team or booster club promotion or brand campaign with promotional products that tie into a basketball tournament watched by an average of 9 million viewers per 67 games. Below are items that will score with any fan, client, player or office pool winner. Click here for a "Joe Show" product video.

Video-playing basketball
Video-playing basketball, from CleggPromo (asi/45450). Users upload any video they want, making this a perfect prize for companies to reward top performers in the office pool.
Logoed spatula, from Sportula (asi/88882). Relive tournament highlights all summer long with a spatula that can be die-cut with a school’s logo. Great promotion for school teams, booster clubs or companies. Includes bottle opener on one end.

Device wraps
Device wraps, from Skinit (asi/87625). Organizations can run an ad campaign based on a fan’s school, allowing them to upload their own picture and wrap their favorite device – phones, laptops, digital cameras, video gaming units, etc. – with college mascots and logos.
Rubber ducks, from Jetline (asi/63344). Promote office pools with basketball-inspired rubber ducks. The tournament can get anyone in the b-ball spirit, and companies can also sponsor a local basketball club and give players collapsible water bottles.

Stress reliever
Stress reliever, from Impressline (asi/62479). Sports can be frustrating enough, but imagine playing with a square ball. Luckily, this stress reliever is perfect for squeezing during down-to-the-wire games.
Mini backboard and ball set, from MAC Specialties (asi/68207). During the tournament any business can send reps armed with great giveaways like this one for clients to encourage them to join an office pool.

Ice pack
Ice pack, from Alpi International (asi/34415). Ouch! Aches and pains can be part of the game. And when your final four teams are knocked out early, it can feed a serious headache. Display a company logo on an item providing frozen or hot relief.
Can holder, from Prime Line (asi/79530). Promote bars and restaurants with a can holder to get people in the door – and to a nice cold beer.

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Promotional products, also known as ad specialties, make up a $20.5 billion dollar industry and are used by virtually every business in America. Why? Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
