19% of Dropped Cell Phones End Up in a Toilet

True story bro. Of the phones that are dropped and sustain damage in a year, one in five of these has water damage from falling into a toilet.  This is an alarming statistic in light of the fact that we live in an age where people would rather lose their wallet or purse than their mobile device.  What exactly do you do in that situation?!

We here at EMT have a preventative solution to this less than pleasant situation. This solution is called the PromoLoop!  Our PromoLoops come in three versions: The Petite Loop, Ninja Loop, and the Awareness Loop.   The three are different, but similar in design and exist for the sole purpose of saving cell phones from costly, or utterly disgusting, falls and drops.

One PromoLoop user picked up a Petite Loop at PPAI Expo this past year and recently sent us this photo with a caption that read, “In a restaurant bathroom with no purse. My credit card and ID are in my pocket, but I have nowhere to put my phone. PromoLoops to the rescue!”

In addition to being quite handy, the sublimated print method means that your brand message will be displayed in vibrant, full color. And, thanks to the fact that most people keep their phones with them day and night, users and the people they interact with will be exposed to your message nearly 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  There are very few products available in the industry that can boast that kind of exposure rate.

Still not convinced that PromoLoops are the right fit for your next promotion?  Consider the fact that PromoLoops can be used by people of all ages and are a great fit for almost every demographic.  You can also feel free to watch and share these videos. They do an incredible job of telling the PromoLoop story and helping to show your clients that for just about $2.00 or less, depending on quantity, they can purchase a small product that will make a big impression over, and over, and over again.

So…Are you ready to put PromoLoops to work for you?  If so, just email customercare@emteasy.com for pricing, samples, and/or virtuals. We’ll help you keep cell phones out of the toilet and keep your clients’ brands in everyone’s hand!

What Does Your skucon #EMTPatch Say About You?

Comments: No Comments
Published on: March 15, 2017

We were fortunate to be sponsors for the promotional products industry’s most disruptive educational event, skucon. And, because patches are on fire in both the retail and promotional markets we thought it fitting that custom adhesive patches be our contribution to the skucon swag bag. EMT and commonsku created five different patches with the help of the talented Tee Hamilton. These patches are representative of the different functions needed to run a successful business operation.

Did you attend skucon? If so, which patch did you snag? If not, take a look at the photo. Which one fits you?

So, what exactly does your skucon #EMTPatch say about you?

 

Entrepreneur:

The entrepreneur. The dreamer. The visionary. You, my friend, are the one that has ideas and sees potential and opportunity in every situation both personally and professionally. You are filled with passion for your endeavors and often act as the catalyst to change and innovation. The idea of failure does not dishearten you, but instead provides the fuel for your brighter than the sun, “I’m going to take over the world someday” fire.

For your playlist: “I will survive” – Gloria Gaynor

 

Creative:

What people say, you see. Conversations become pictures and movies in your mind. You are able to articulate and convey brand message differently than most. You might tell the story through actual written word, or maybe you have possess the skills necessary to transform thoughts and ideas into pictures and logos. Whatever your unique skills might be, your existence in the mix is necessary because you add color and breathe life into what would otherwise be a boring world full of monotony and routine. While the world is busy building boxes and trying fit themselves into them, you are busy turning those boxes into airplanes and helping our brands take flight and soar to new heights.

For your playlist: “Yellow Submarine” – The Beatles

 

Marketing:

You can have the best tasting pie on the planet, but if no one knows about it, you aren’t going to sell any of it! You are responsible for ensuring that not only do people know about the pie, but that they feel like they can’t live without having a piece of it. You believe that your company has the best story to tell and are charged with making sure this story is heard by the greatest number of people in the shortest amount of time. A marketer is Cupid personified, armed with a bag full of your-company-branded arrows, you head into the world with the goal of helping people fall in love.

For your playlist: “Papas Got a Brand New Bag” – James Brown

 

Sales:

Ah, the closers! You arrive on the scene fueled by equal amounts of coffee and ambition. The entrepreneurs dreamed it up, the creatives brought it to life, the marketers have told the world about it, and now you get to head in to seal up the deal! Your feature-benefit game is strong and you can overcome the objections of the masses before people even have time to object. You are the relationship builder, creative problem solver, and customer-factory liaison. You are charming and full of passion and personality, and are able to think on your feet. If you’re really great at what you do, you don’t have to play the price game to get business. In your world, it’s all about value baby. Priceline negotiator ain’t got nothin’ your mad skills.

For your playlist: “Eye of the Tiger” – Survivor

 

Operations:

Operations a.k.a. The Glue that Holds it All Together. When Mr. or Mrs. Priceline Negotiator up there makes promises, it’s on you to figure out how to deliver on-time and under-budget. There’s no time in your world for unicorns and rainbows. You are the straight shooter tasked with efficiency. Systems and processes? Now that’s your jam! More often than not, you can be found behind the scenes, working long hours. Your desk is most likely piled high with orders to enter and bills to pay, which you could get to a lot more quickly if you weren’t also fighting “UPS Delivery Exception Notification” and “Why is the printer jammed again” fires. Yet still, you do what it takes to make it happen. Creatives can keep doing their thing. Marketers can keep marketing. Sales can keep selling. And the entrepreneurs can keep…well.. God only knows what they are doing by now, but thanks to you, we can all keep on keepin’ on. To the operations rockstars, you are the unsung heroes, and for this we salute you.

Testimonial: Steve Weinstein, President

“I have known Steve for more than a decade and can say from both my strategic business brain and from my heart, there is no one more focused and driven to provide high quality service and products for his customers than Steve and EMT.

I’ve seen Steve diversify his company and product line in order to meet the needs of a changing promotional products industry. He makes wise and innovative choices about what to add and also deduct from his product line. Although he is well known in the industry for his strong opinions on what works and what doesn’t, he is flexible enough to try  new things.

Steve knows the promotional product business. I consider him a great adviser in matters of business. But most of all I consider him a friend.”
