Salespeople have been around for almost as long as humankind has been around. Every product or idea needs an expert in order to help it sell. Today is National Salesperson Day, a day to honor and celebrate salespeople across the nation, just by simply saying “thank you”, or by going an extra step and getting them a thoughtful gift. Does your company have its own team of knowledgeable salespeople who deserve a service award? Or do you have a close relationship with the friendly salespeople who come to your office with their “new and latest” product? Generosity needs no sales pitch, so be generous this week and reward them with a thoughtful Leatherman tool.
Today the National Guard is preparing to blow out 383 candles on its birthday cake. In 1636, the Massachusetts militia was officially organized to help defend the colony. The National Guard is our states’ main support during any sort of crisis. They provide rapid incident response within 6-12 hours. Their skills span a broad range- from combating drug trafficking, to medical triage, search & rescue, all the way to youth mentoring.
Your customers and employees will love celebrating this big birthday with any of these high-quality engraved camouflage knives.
What does being brave mean to you? It could simply mean facing a challenge head-on that you didn’t think you originally could face. This challenge could be something as small as facing your fear of heights by going to the top floor of a skyscraper. Or it could be even bigger like protecting and defending our country, as American military veterans have done, and continue to do.
Today is Veterans Day, a very special day in which Americans celebrate and honor all military veterans. The holiday originated as Armistice Day in 1919, as it honored the ending of WWI on the 11th hour of 11th day of 11th month in 1918. But in 1954, after the end of WWII, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in order to honor American veterans of all wars, not just those who fought in WWI.
What better way to celebrate and thank our veterans than with an American flag engraved pocket knife. Handing them out at your company or town’s Veterans Day celebration will brighten up everyone’s day.
Today is National Color the World Orange Day, which to many people sounds like just a day to celebrate this beautiful color. It is, in fact, a day to bring awareness to CRPS/RSD. What do all these letters stand for? According to https://www. colortheworldorange.com:
“Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a chronic pain condition characterized by continuous, intense, often burning, pain that is out of proportion to the severity of the original injury. Symptoms can include changes in the skin color and temperature of the affected body part, as well as skin sensitivity, sweating and swelling.”
Many of us, yours truly included, have probably not heard of this painful ailment, but hopefully through word of mouth more awareness can be drawn to it in order to help those affected.
How can your company raise awareness for CRPS/RSD?
Wear orange ribbons
Plan a company event where part of the proceeds go to a CRPS/RSD nonprofit
Change your company website color to orange
Post an image to your social media account with the hashtag #CRPSORANGEDAY
Take advantage of multiple imprint locations. Put your company logo on the handle, and a saying on the blade, like “Merry Christmas 2019”.
Packaging is important, because it is the first impression. Case knives have optional wooden boxes and metal cans, for that perfect presentation. See the genuine Case packaging.
“Personalization”. Many pocket knives can be engraved with the recipient’s first and last name. This adds more meaning to your special gift. Plus, if someone loses their gift knife, it will probably be returned to them.
This week is National Forest Products Week, a week where we embrace the beauty and strength of our nation’s forests. According to the U.S. Forest Service there are many ways in which supporting our forests helps the whole nation:
Supporting sustainable forest management helps reduce damage from insects, disease, invasive species & uncharacteristic wildfires
Using leftover wood materials expands the wood products markets, creating an alternative to burning or sending remnants to land fills
Places rural America at the forefront
Creates American jobs at every stage of the supply chain
You can help support our nation’s forests by rewarding your customers with wood handle pocketknives this fall. Whether you prefer Case, Buck, or Kutmaster, there are countless styles of wood handle pocketknives and accessories to choose from.
It comes as no surprise that the most successful companies are those with the best customer service. How can you improve the efficiency, quality, and reliability of yours this week? After all, it is National Customer Service Week.
First, you need to define how you can transform your customer service from just “meh” to “ah-may-zing!”.
Listen to your employees; happy employees will lead to better service
Always answer the phone
Hire & train employees properly
Take constructive criticism- complaints can become opportunities
The next question, once you’ve attracted your customers, is how can you keep them coming back? What incentives or engraved pocket knives can you give them?
