I’m going to change things up a bit. It’s Spring, and the sun is shining and I’m… well frankly I’m bored with writing about new and innovative items I discover in the world of swag. Not that there aren’t new items – I see them on almost a daily basis. I just want to write about something different for a change. So let’s talk about Team Whizzo.
This all started with my friend Veronika Noize, marketing maven extrordinaire. If you haven’t heard of Ronnie, check out her site when you’re done with this: www.veronikanoize.com. She helps small businesses attract more clients and she’s damn good at what she does.
Anyway, Ronnie is helping some folks in Vancouver, WA launch a new technology product called Whizzo, and she came to me looking for some cool items to put the Whizzo brand on.
So what is Whizzo? In a nutshell, it’s a super-duper suite of programs that’s designed for home and small office use. They took all of the very best programs that kill spam, block popups, prevent viruses, guard against hackers and other vital computer stuff and put them all together in one neat little program. It’s better and has way more features than Norton and McAfee – you can check it out at www.teamwhizzo.com.
So what kind of swag did Team Whizzo decide on for their launch? For one thing, a very cool and curvy red pen with a comfy gel grip. Pens are the single largest promotional product category, in case you didn’t know, so having a cool pen for their product launch was a definite must.
Besides the pens, we did some cool full-color microfiber screen wipes with edge-to-edge graphics and the Team Whizzo logo. They turned out looking great – I love the bright colors. If you’re curious about the wipes, look back at my posts, I wrote them up a while back.
Last but not least, we did some cool epoxy-domed logo decals with the Whizzo “W”. These are the same domed decals you’ll find stuck on the front of most PCs with the manufacturer’s logo under the dome. Whizzo can use the domes to instantly ‘brand’ generic items to use for their marketing, and they can also put the decals on computers after they install Whizzo software.
It was a lot of fun working with Ronnie to pull this project together – with a tight timeframe – and attend a very successful launch party last week.
