img Marketing Tip
An easy way to drive traffic to your website is by commenting on blogs. You're already out there reading posts, so go ahead and drop some feedback, be insightful, or point out what you liked about the post. You can generally leave your website URL along with your comment, so other readers will be tempted to see who you are and what your company is.

Industry Trends
Follow the handmade brick road! Consumers are trending toward artisan, handmade, and recyclable items, even in the promotional products industry. While you may not be able to get 1,000 hand-crafted pens for a decent price, try focusing on natural materials, like wood and cork, and eco-friendly products to get the attention of these buyers.
Advice Column
Q: How can I get the word out about upcoming specials?

A: Social Media is a great way to promote sales, but you don't want to overload customers. Try putting together a monthly newsletter that gives customers a heads up about specials that are coming soon. If you have a WebExpress or WebExpress Pro site, you can also rotate out your banner to highlight sales.
