With more and more access to products on the internet, many business people may ask themselves, why use a promotional product consultant? What many people don’t realize is that you are getting the services of the ad specialty consultant for free. That’s right. The promotional product consultant is buying the products wholesale and then selling to the end user oftentimes for less than they could purchase these same marketing products on line.
Your consultant will also be able to distinguish between good sources and not so good sources. Most promotional product reps have the means to sort products, not only by price, but by the manufacturer’s ranking in the Ad Specialty industry. Many reps only use A and A+ rated suppliers. These are suppliers that offer great service, great quality products, free paper proofs and on time delivery. You can rest assured that you will get the product you expected and on time.
Your Specialty Advertising consultant can also help you with a marketing plan, help you find just the right product based on your budget, with no hidden charges. Most of us have a lot of experience when it comes to finding great ideas and we don’t charge the customer regarding the process of finding these ideas. We only get paid when products are actually purchased.
After the order is placed, your promotional product rep will stay on top of your order, make sure the artwork is correct, make sure you get a proof or virtual sample and make sure it ships on time so you don’t have to worry especially if you have an event date. So, the hard work of your consultant isn’t done when the sale is made, sometimes there is a lot of work done behind the scenes to ensure you get the product you ordered on time.
So the next time you are in the market for promotional products, consider working with an experienced promotional product consultant. You will save money in the long run and rest assured that someone is in your corner helping you make the right decision, at the right price and in a timely manner.
