I really am a throw back. In this day and age of Washington Concensus minded, self-persevering valued folks, I’m just an old fashioned egalitarian. This doesn’t mean that I think we should all sew up some Mao-style unisex suits and eat from cans labeled in black in white. It just means that I don’t think that the playing field is level and it needs to be and then measures need to be enacted to maintain equal opportunity. Well it means some other things too, but that’s neither her nor there for this little chat. In the end, my support for equality comes down to equal opportunity and respect. And that’s how I try to approach people today.
I feel that everyone has something positive to share with me and the world and I try to approach all in this manner until proven otherwise. I have spent time with some wonderfully intelligent and caring wealthy people and I certainly have ample experiences of sharing time with those less fortunate that have taught me much about life with their wisdom, patience and sense of humor.
This is why I like balloons. I feel like their the egalitarian activist in the world of toys and advertising. So many other toys and advertising gimmicks typically associate themselves with one segment of society or another. This is not the case with balloons.
Although balloons boast an incredibly low and anachronistic price, both rich and poor kids want them at their party. Middle school kids still let off balloons to carry messages of goodwill to its unknown recipient. Even Colombian mules count on balloons as an integral part of their import/export businesses.
So, if you truly believe in equality, put your money where your mouth is and drop socially stratifying toys like PlayStation or Homies and get yourself some balloons. Let’s play and advertise in solidarity. Land, Liberty, Balloons!
Whatever happened to skywriting? I’m sure that’s what it’s called. You know, its when a plane writes out a message with such exquisite penmanship and flight mastery that an entire town will be stopped in their tracks in order to admire the great manifestation of human conquering nature, and simultaneously delivering a sharp message no doubt.
I’m picturing it now. Two rascally nine year olds stop happily shooting bottle rockets at a cat to stand awestruck at the sky. Old man Smith puts off sweeping the sidewalk in from of his general store, admiring greatly the bold blue sky embossed with a lovely serif font. Two quarreling drivers stop accusing one another as to who caused the accident they just were in and agree with one another, if only briefly, that skywriting can really brighten a day. It was a local kid done good. He probably used to shovel your walk and then refuse your two bits, because that’s what skywriters did. And now he’s thousands of feet up, scarf proudly billowing behind, putting up the good news of Larry’s tires having a labor day sale or maybe to tell all that Steve loves Molly.
Yes, that’s what I’m thinking about. We didn’t have all this terrorist talk. We only needed to worry about a nuclear-armed Soviet Union aggressor; but hiding under our desks seemed to reduce that old threat. Nowadays, we’ve got dirty bombs and even dirtier intelligence agencies. Is it a coincidence that skywriting has fallen out of favor? I don’t think so. So, let’s bring mobile outdoor advertising back to its roots. Everyone loves a good billboard. But I want my outdoor advertising in cursive with a slice of fresh apple pie and some vanilla on the side.
There’s not a question that promotional items can be an invaluable way to help market your company, product or service. However, it’s also safe to say that not all promotional items are of equal value or offer the same marketing power. The item given away should be wanted by the potential client, not just taken because it’s free, only to be discarded later. These should be items that people use, preferably on a consistent basis.
Very few promotional items can compete with the usability of advertising pens. You have probably used one recently yourself. Many people feel reluctant to use even the most commonly used items, such as shirts and hats, but pens have been accepted by the general public like none other.
This atmosphere of acceptance and usage presents you with an awesome opportunity to have your logo and company name visible over and over, using repetition to further your advertising goals. And think about how many times pens are passed between friends and colleagues; this is moving your advertising to further markets.
Another aspect of advertising pens that allows you to advertise the way that you want is the ability to promote your company using anything from incredibly inexpensive pens to fine luxury models for your important customers
Start using one of the most cost effective, as well as advertising effective, promotional items today and get your business the boast that can only come from advertising pens.
