Mega Partnering and Cape Coral-based Top One Coaching Coaching, Mentoring & Consulting

Gumby at Mega Partnering Conference V

Mega Partnering is held in high regard for attracting industry leaders, celebrities, and millionaires together providing riveting talks and rare opportunities for partnership ideas from some of the world’s best entrepreneurs. Top ONE help overworked entrepreneurs reclaim their business armed with tools, resources, and personal guidance to take control of their time, income, and freedom.

At the Mega Partnering Conference V held this year in Dallas, Top One once again brought in big names to inspire thousands of aspiring students to achieve their greatest success. Top One students hail from a diversity of nations, including Dubai, Australia and the U.K.

To help Top One stand out at the conference (a tough feat with a celebrity-studded event), Marlene Smith, was in search of promotional ‘swag’. With the date looming near in the future, Smith reached out to friends on Facebook, one of whom recommended Promotional Incentives.

According to sales director Marlene Smith, “I knew it was quite the feat, and I needed someone I could count on. I remembered meeting Lucy (Costa) at a networking function in Cape Coral, and when my friend Darlene Grossman recommended her, I felt confident in their ability to come through. “

The Promotional Incentives team went into action and designed the promotions to coordinate with the black and yellow color theme of the Top One logo. The task was particularly challenging as there were less than two weeks to complete the orders for the conference. Conference attendees received luggage tags, insulated drinkware, and refillable hand sanitizers; all useful gifts for busy executives.

According to Marlene, not only were they useful at the conference, “these products will continue to brand Top One long after the conference is over.”

All goals were achieved. The products were delivered in time, within budget, with no rush charges, and Top One posted a strong marketing presence; a perfect example of what is meant by, “Getting Results.”

Promotional Incentives | NAWIC Block Kids

Our Block Kids program is designed as an educational tool, to promote the construction industry by allowing the students from grades 1-6 to “build construction projects” with plastic building blocks as their “construction materials”. The program was created in 1990. Since launching the program, more than 300,000 children have participated. The overall winner of this event was Emilio Martinez of Tice Elementary. He is a 3rd grader.

Each child is presented a hardhat, commemorative T-shirt, and blueprint. Along with 100 plastic building blocks, a string, aluminum foil and a rock they create masterpieces. Southwest Florida businesses pledge sponsorships and provide judges for the students’ work. Awards and Trophies are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each grade category.

It was our pleasure at Promotional Incentives, Inc. to provide the Commemorative T-shirts for this event over the past 6 years.

Climbing to New Heights

The Chamber of Southwest Florida

The 2010 Class of the Chamber of Southwest Florida’s Leadership Lee County program led the way to kick off the final phase of fundraising for The Heights Foundation in its mission to restart construction on the Harlem Heights Cultural Arts & Community Center.

The group raised $37,000 in donations from the Community UP Rising event held on June 1 at the Heights Center. To add a little fun and color to the ground breaking, Promotional Incentives provided Heights Foundation with bright orange construction hats (orange is one of the predominant colors in the Heights Foundation logo); a low cost, highly visible promotional item worn by dignitaries, board members, sponsors and the general public to share the excitement of this incredible endeavor for the southwest Florida community.

The Center will provide with enhanced access to the arts and improved education, training and enrichment programs for the residents of Harlem Heights and surrounding neighborhoods of Harlem Heights. With nearly $450,000 of the $6.5 million capital campaign goal remaining to be raised, members of Leadership Lee County are still asking the community to support the building the project.

Breaking Ground for Fort Myers Company, LeeSar

Groundbreaking Ceremony using Groundbreaking Promotional Item in Fort Myers, FL

Groundbreakings used to be considered ho-hum news, but in this day of stunted economic growth, breaking ground on a new structure is major news.

One of Fort Myers’ hometown heroic companies, LeeSar, broke ground on their new Regional Service Center facility on Friday, April 22. Priority Marketing coordinated the event planning, execution, and publicity. It was of course no coincidence the event occurred on Earth Day, as they dug into the earth.

To commemorate this important event, LeeSar and Priority Marketing presented a memorable gift to the leaders who are making this vision a reality. Thirty VIPs were presented with their own chrome-plated shovel engraved with the LeeSar logo and event date.

To LeeSar president, Bob Simpson, it was more about his employees than the dirt. Simpson also raved about the professionalism and outstanding service provided by Teri Hansen and her team at Priority Marketing. “You did an outstanding job,” Simpson said several times throughout the day.

Priority Marketing has a twenty-year track record of event management, ranging from private parties to major events with celebrities and thousands in attendance.

“That was one of the BEST events I have ever attended,” stated Fort Myers Police Chief Doug Baker.

More than two hundred and fifty people attended the tented event.

LeeSar is fast becoming one of the leading employers in Lee County, and was recently cited as being one of the most innovative companies in Florida.

Great Promotional Idea by Terry Wynter Auto Service Center

Terry Wynter Auto Service Center’s recent promotion combines helpful auto safety tips with a free ID key tag.  This is a great marketing strategy designed to  get maxiumum results from a branded promotional product.

Look to Promotional Incentives, Inc for more ideas promoting your brand through functional giveaways. And here are the helpful tips from Terry Wynter Auto:

“You may be familiar with that frustrating feeling of losing your car keys. It’s not only expensive to replace your car keys, but an inconvenience.”

Here are 5 tips on preventing your car and keys from being lost or stolen:

  • Make a habit of always placing your keys in the same place. Try placing your keys in your purse, pocket or on a key rack when you get out of your car. This way you will always know where to find them.
  • Never leave your spare keys by the front door or in an obvious location, as this might encourage thieves.
  • Always have a spare key for your vehicle. Some dealerships charge $200 or more to replace a key for a newer vehicle.Fort Myers Auto Company
  • Never leave your car running, unless you are in the driver’s seat. This is not only an easy way to lock yourself out of your car, but also an easy way for someone to steal your vehicle.
  • It’s also not safe to have your name and address on a key chain attached to your home keys, as this makes it too easy for a burglar to locate and enter your home.

Terry Wynter Auto is offering a FREE and safe way to protect your keys!

The Terry Wynter Auto Service Center key tag will feature a specific customer ID number and our service center address and phone number. When keys are turned into Terry Wynter Auto Service Center, we will contact you to pick up the keys.

Promoting a Worthy Cause

Advancing Worthy Causes

One of our primary missions at Promotional Incentives is to help worthy causes advance their goals, awareness & fundraising efforts.

The Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimer’s Resource Center took on an important initiative to increase the awareness of elder abuse by spearheading a new coalition called Lee Elder Abuse Prevention Partnership (LEAPP). With the help of a federal grant, the Center embarked on an ambitious program to promote prevention of this growing problem in our community.

To identify the program a logo was designed using the acronym LEAPP with an icon that would be eye-catching and memorable.

In addition to educational programs, LEAPP’s steering committee felt that reasonably priced, promotional products were important in targeting their market with this message and keeping the issue out in front of the community.

Low-priced, quality pens with the LEAPP logo were chosen as a handout for events, seminars and presentations. Once someone is exposed to the issue, it is the hope of the new coalition that they will be more aware of, look for signs, and report elder abuse.

At a local public event to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15th, small bottles of bubbles were given out as an item to have fun while reducing stress. The LEAPP logo was on the bottle lid as a subtle reminder of the prevention initiative.
