Market:  Financial

Strategy: A large financial firm located in Boise, Idaho were able to tie overall company morale to customer satisfaction and sales. In a country where the average amount of jobs for people by the age of 50 is 11.7, the retention rate for good employees is extremely important. The firm hires hundreds of drivers to transport valuable goods and currency across the country. In order to lower the turnover rate, which in turn saves millions of dollars, the company started an employee appreciation program. Part of this program was rewarding drivers for each milestone with the company. One of the biggest rewards was a bonus and gift basket for every million miles driven. The custom belt buckle was proudly worn by employees who had a new appreciation for their jobs and felt more valued within the company. Employees were rewarded for the longevity of their employment, special projects, and other various accomplishments.

 

Results: While the program was relatively low cost for the company, it made employees happier, increasing productivity, and decreased the turnover rate by over 27%! This saved the company millions of dollars in training and time. The belt buckles were a huge hit among drivers, who wore them proudly, increasing the company’s name recognition.

“Working with Brian and EMT in general has been nothing but a pleasure.  During EME, Brian provided us with product samples and current info on new and underutilized products that have proven to be great ideas for a couple of my clients already.  Additionally, immediately after EME, Brian was able to get an emergency order of magnetic hat clips turned around for me in about 3 working days.  Since EME, I have spoken with Brian twice and have received additional, valuable information to show to my clients and prospects.  EMT has a great product line and have performed beautifully for us on both domestic and overseas products.”

Case Study: Bicycle Survival Tool

Purposes: The Credit Card Sized Bicycle Survival Tool was designed to be a “do-it-all” tool—small enough to fit comfortably in the cargo or on the person of a bicyclist. It includes a custom case and is perfect for anyone who wants a tool that can perform the following functions: Can Opener, Knife Edge, Screwdriver, Ruler, Bottle Opener, 4-Position Wrench, Butterfly Screw Wrench, Saw Blade, Compass Indicator, 2-Position Wrench & Keychain Hole. This product is designed for anyone who prefers to pack light.

Market: Education

Objective: Speeding through school and residential zones was common, and there were too many pedestrian injuries and deaths in one county. Green Ribbon Month was started in 1998 by one county’s Safe Kids Coalition to protect children from being hit by motor vehicles in school zones and crosswalks. Three teenagers were hit and killed in one intersection alone over a period of six years. Awareness was going to be the key factor in making a statewide change.

Strategy: The public awareness campaign included green ribbons displayed on signs, cars, people, fences, trees, and poles. In addition, local PTAs had parents and drivers all sign pledges to drive 5 mi/h under the posted speed in school zones and residential areas, to stop at crosswalks, to yield to pedestrians when making turns, to not pass a vehicle stopped for a pedestrian, and to educate their children about pedestrian safety. Children also signed pledges about safe pedestrian practices. Good media coverage helped the project along, including a publicized press conference with representatives from several organizations and the police department.

Results:
Costs of the program were minimal as sponsors — local printing companies, the health departments, and the Highway Safety Officers — funded the reproduction of posters, information packets that contained bicycle accessories (including the Bicycle Survival Tool), and mailings. Local PTAs spent about $15 to buy ribbons and copy pledge cards.
The project was a success in the county of its origin and soon spread to the entire state. The State Governor declared September to be Green Ribbon Month, and in the fourth year after the program began, more than 35,000 people participated. Most impressively, pedestrian and motor vehicle crashes decreased every year after the implementation of the program.

•    Bike Tool Size: Performs several different functions
•    Includes a customized case

EMT Bicycle Survival Tool

 

 

New Product Release: Bicycle Survival Tool

Case Study: Pepper Spray, .5 oz. Can with Key Ring

Purposes: Self-protection by spraying pepper spray in an assailant’s eyes/face

Market: Education

Objective: Non-Lethal self-defense for young college students after a rash of burglaries took place near the Bradley University Campus.

Strategy: After a rash of burglaries, one college had a steady stream of students dropping out and moving off campus. The burglary stint lasted for about three years; the first year or so, the campus decided to try to not publicize it, because it was such a disaster for public relations. The last couple of years, they took a very proactive stance, and began campaigns such as, “Be there: Be Aware,” and “Self-Defense Education.” Weekly student “Self-Protection” classes were created and buddy systems for students walking to and from class were initiated. As part of these campaigns, the pepper spray was handed out with the warning labels on key tags. After a solid year of promoting self-defense, not only did police eventually arrest the burglar, but the college campus began to establish a reputation for self-defense, fitness, and awareness. College enrollment increased 4.9% in the last year.

Features

  • Non-lethal self-defense
  • Contains oleoresin capsicum from cayenne pepper
  • Irritates skin & closes eyes, temporarily disabling assailants
  • 6 ft. range: protection at a safe distance
  • 2-year shelf life
  • Retail style clam shell packaging included
