the twist: the block party

marketing has been invigorated with new approaches to selling products and services. e-marketing, blogs and social media enliven our strategies and challenge our imaginations.  but let’s not forget that the message will evaporate, if our business is not built on strong foundations.

do the twist:  make the point and have a little fun too. promo block sets are a great way to get your message into the hands of the clients you love or want to love. arrange your message on these colorful blocks that can be broken apart and rebuilt over and over again. use your imagination, it’s playful, fun and shows your creative side.

the twist: the butterscotch blues

Lately the news has been; well the news.  After I ferried my tax returns to the irs, remembered the 98th anniversary of the sinking of the titanic, and watched the top blow off the icelandic volcano,  my favorite ice cream place confirmed that butterscotch topping was discontinued nationwide. wait what… i immediately contacted my news source in the big apple, and it’s true. just when you needed some butterscotch and comfort watching thousands stranded at airports.  can we say…survival.  being the optimist let me offer some promotional hope.

do the twist:  the traveler’s survival kit

 features a number of useful props.

  1.  a comb, so you don’t look like a crazed person at the ticket counter
  2.  antibacterial wipes,  for the cut you gave yourself when banging on the  ticket counter
  3. bandages, for the same cut
  4. toothbrush and paste,  hoping that clean breath will get you on the next flight
  5. tissues, when your hotness and clean breath still leave you stranded   

more twists:   I don’t report the news, I just read it…but you can find this kit and many newsworthy promotions at www.creative-crossroads.com planes, boats, trains, here, there and everywhere (hey Sir Paul) until next week, allow me a moment with my butterscotch blues.

the twist: a little bamboo with l’hommage to woody allen

Credit: Broadway Danny Rose

 “Broadway Danny Rose

One of my favorite Woody movies is BDR. It is the story of Danny Rose, theatrical agent (played by Woody Allen) who has the craziest New York adventure with Tina Vitale, (played by Mia Farrow). In a classic scene, Tina comments on Danny’s “darling it’s rent controlled” apartment. She envisions a room full of pink pillows and lots of bamboo. Little did we know that Tina was a decorator way ahead of her time. Today bamboo is the buzzword in environmentally friendly products, good luck and prosperity. So this week we bring you a little bamboo.

do the twist: Our two stalk bamboo plant is packaged in a natural cotton bag. The hang tag is attached and customized with your logo and copy. Share some luck with your favorite clients, maybe some will come back to you.
