Big corporations, small companies, and even universities need to promote their brands or names from time to time, so that people will be familiar with what they sell, trade, or offer. Common advertising strategies use pamphlets, pins, stickers, magnets and many other materials to promote the names of companies, but one of the most effective promotional tools that are being used are cheap printed pens.

Writing has always been a part of our lives. Since we started doodling when we were still young until we began scribbling our first letters, pens, pencils, or any other writing materials have been with us through the years. No matter how modern technology is, writing will never be out of style. This is one great reason why using cheap printed pens are going to be effective and practical as promotional materials. We use pens practically every day – from children to adults, and from students to professionals.

Promotional tools can be successful depending on the usefulness of the materials given out. People tend to remember more the companies, corporations or universities because they can actually make use of the promotional items given to them. This is another reason why cheap printed pens are great promotional materials. Other than being useful and functional, pens are also conveniently small so people will not have second thoughts when you hand them your promotional items. Some materials that are handed out to people oftentimes end up in the trash or even ignored by passersby. For example are pamphlets or leaflets. Cheap printed pens won’t definitely be thrown away because everybody needs a pen. It’s definitely something that you should always have with you either in your pocket or in your bag.

Cheap printed pens are very convenient and practical when you don’t want to cough up a lot of money but at the same time still be sure that your advertising materials are effective and efficient. You can buy these things in large quantities, and another good advantage is that you could choose from a lot of different colours and designs that could cater to your companies’ needs. You could choose from gel pens, rollerball pens and ballpoint pens in different shades and styles.

Cheap printed pens can help you make your corporation be well-known to a lot of people. They are great promotional tools and as marketing research statistics say, the most effective and one of the most useful items to hand out to people.

Day 6 4 hour Work day

Keeping track of time is crucial to this experiment. I will say I was on the phone a LOT this week and Friday went over the 4 hour time limit if you add the telephone conversation I had about 7 PM. It was business and I was doing a lot of listening! It’s an exciting opportunity, however, I want to have all the information before I get involved.

This week I also launched my crowd funding campaign at  www.crowdfundinglive/acfl   It’s for my new book. So as part of what I am doing to help raise money, I was on the phone. You have to explain to people what you are doing, basically they can pre-purchase the book at this webpage. Also Crowd funding Fridays, kept me on the phone. I tend not to multitask while on the phone so I do not miss anything.

I tried to spend at least one hour in the office very day, however, there are a lot of things I can do at home and internet at the office has been wonky. It’s never worked right since I moved in ( June 2012) and I am tired of being on hold for 30 minutes to try and talk to Verizon about it again. I feel my life draining away every time I call.

Today I will be working (blogging and listening to an online teleclass) and I will include this in my work day. Then find something FUN to do! I might do some video blogging from home later today. I live in the suburbs, saturdays, every lawn mover and weed wacker in the community is out. Once the noise dies down, I might be able to do something cool in my back yard.

It’s the last 100 days of the year, what are you prepping for?

Leave your answer below I would to know!

4 Hour Work Day

NO- I did not get it wrong, I know it’s 4 hour work week, however, I am not looking for a 4 hour work week. This summer I wanted a 4 hour work day. Instead of being down on myself for wanting to enjoy the long days, I decided to increase my efficiency and then just take the rest of the time off. Now, you never know WHICH 4 hours of the day it will be. That’s my choice as a business owner. But I am free of guilt for slacking off or day dreaming while watching the butterflies in the office garden.

I am using a strategy I learned from Dave Lakhani – work for 50 min and then take a 10 min break. I Modified it to work for 20 and take a break  and I also use the action machine to time myself.

I will push to 6 hour work day if I have a busy day. I am not wasting time and I have time to do things at home like- clean out my book case!. I am not done yet, I have more book cases to go. These are the first batch of books donated – 2 full boxes and 4 bags and an old clothes basket, all full of books.

I also sold a few to Amazon on their trade in program that netted me $50!

Getting ride of clutter feels good, the books are good, I hope they bless the new readers and life is good.

I will update you on this 4 hour work day thing and see if I can take it until the end of the year!

Did you make any changes in how you work? Post below, I love to hear new ideas.
