simple marketing tools

Voice Talent Doug Turkel, the UNnouncer

Some folks call them tchotchkes, trinkets, gifts, souvenirs or ad specialties.

They are the presents, usually logoed, that business give to other businesses as a thank you or as a possible long term reminder of a company’s name and brand. Hopefully the gift (pens, hats, flashlights etc.) are useful or at the very least fun.

This came to mind as I was going through my VOICE 2010 bag (yes, I knew I’d get around to it) and saw this gift from UNnouncer Doug Turkel.

The message on the envelope says:

Have you ever needed a surprisingly compact copy stand to use with your mobile recording rig? A minimalist frame to hold that photo you should’ve reconsidered posting on Facebook? Or a convenient place to keep your important list of to-do items front and center?

Yeah, me too. Enjoy.

Creative, different, memorable.

Now you have to go out and think up something for your business? Or do you have an idea you’d like to share with the class?

  1. Really like the compact copy stand Doug. Very ingenious,out of the box thinking. Using it now, thanks. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to meet you at Voice2010. Next time.

    Continued success.
