Hooray For Beer!

Reading Time: 1 minute

Okay, I am guilty.  I love beer.  And if you read this blog on any regular basis, you know that I love to “Deliver Marketing Joy!”  All of us at Hasseman Marketing love to provide amazing branded merchandise for our customers and friends.  As we often say, that moment when you get that cool box of swag is a little bit like Christmas morning. So we thought…why can’t we combine the two?   That is why we are partnering with Hasseman Brewing (yes, we know them really well) to offer our clients Private Label Craft Beer.  What does this mean?  It simply means that you can get bottles of high quality craft beer with your organization (or event) logo on it!  We feel like this is a great, one of a kind gift idea.   And of course, since we are in the Branded Merchandise business, you can combine the personalized beer with branded coolers, mugs and more!    Check out the flyer below to get your wheels turning! hasseman marketing beer  If you are interested in more information, now is the perfect time!  Please contact us here for more information.   Oh…sorry for the pure sales blog post.  We are just excited! Make sure you never miss an update!  Sign up for our VIP newsletter below.       

But Did You Know?

  We have a fun business.  That’s why we say we “Deliver Marketing Joy.”  When you receive something from us (if we get it right) you get a little piece of Christmas morning.  We hear stories of teams gathering around a box to see the latest goodies that have arrived.   That is so cool.  We do fun stuff.  As I have heard PPAI’s Paul Bellantone say, “It’s the only kind of marketing that your clients actually thank you for!”   One of our challenges, however, is the diverse range of products and services we do offer.  Being in this business, it’s easy to get pigeon-holed.  We can become the “t-shirt guy” or the “pen gal,” or “weird guy who sells calendars.”  Titles can be tough.  🙂  With approximately a million products to showcase, it’s hard to let our clients know ALL the things we offer.   So how about a test?  Did you know?  Here are a few product categories where we shine.   Custom Awards:  A great way to make employees and team members feel appreciated is with a custom award program.  Yes…we do that.  We even helped one of our clients create a really cool award program for their top customers.  Read more here.  Regardless of who you want to recognize, a cool custom award could be the perfect way to leave an impression. Print:  From flyers to calendars to business cards, we work to be a one-stop marketing solution.  And with a full time graphic designer, we can help you look good!  I mean, we know you look good, but we can help translate that to paper!   Signage:  One of the reasons I love our Trade show is that it gives people a chance to see this up close.  We have a full selection of trade show displays, banners and so much more.  Oh…and that design capability is super important here too. Food Gifts:  This is a great time of year to talk about this!  During the holiday season, food gifts are a great item for offices.  Not only is it personal, but it’s shareable.  And though you might normally think of the local grocery store (they are great) or a big box store (not so great at this), we can be a great option for personalized food gifts during the holidays.   And those are just a few things you might not have known we offered.  It’s not your fault!  It’s hard to keep track.   Make sure you never miss an update, or a product category!  Sign up for our VIP newsletter.  How does it work?  We gather all of the content we create and send one email per week to catch you up!  Sign up below.
