New for HodgePodge Marketing
Hey there, I wanted to let you know about a pretty exciting new direction for me (well not really new). I have added promotional products to my list of business services for HodgePodge Marketing and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I can’t think of a more “full circle” use of my skill set (marketing, graphic design, AND products to boot).
I had first been introduced to promotional products when I worked at Gregory Poole Equipment Company. We used to hold several sales and service events and have a very robust marketing closet filled with all kinds of great items to promote the Caterpillar Brand. I was lucky enough to work with a great salesman name Pete Haeseker and I think I may have caught the promo bug from him.
My next major exposure to promotional products was at Highwoods Properties, where I sourced and managed all of our promo needs, employees gifts, printing, and signage.
Finally, I really cut my teeth at Brand Fuel Promotions, where for over four years, I was responsible for providing unique product solutions and integrating logo’d merchandise within larger marketing messages or concepts. These included campaign creation, custom packaging design, product selection, and sourcing.
I learned so much about how companies can create lasting impressions and build awareness through the power of pens, drinkware, tech products, packaging, wearables (uniforms), bags and more.
I can’t wait to see where this new venture will take me and HodgePodge Marketing, but whatever it is, it’ll be quite a ride! Wish me luck!!
