Agents aren't the only ones marketing online these days. After years of mailing large, expensive promotional packages to PIA members across the country each August, PIA and The Mines Press have decided to discontinue that aspect of our marketing program. But although the mailer won't be hitting your mailbox this year, the great 10% discount on Mines Press calendar products is still available to PIA members on all orders placed through August 31.

For years PIA members across the country have relied on The Mines Press for high-quality promotional calendars for their agencies. Through the PIA/Mines Press program, agents can order personalized wall calendars, diaries, planners, desk calendars, greeting cards, wallet cards, stick-on calendars and other calendar items at 10% off their regular price.

Promotional Calendars Are Proven to Work - for C/L and P/L

If you are not among the large number of agents who have discovered the brand building and referral magic of promotional calendars, here's some information gleaned from recent studies conducted by the Promotional Products Association International*:

  • Almost eight out of 10 business respondents (78 percent) and households (79 percent) surveyed reported having a printed calendar at work/home.
  • Eighty-two percent of households and 79 percent of business respondents enjoy receiving calendars as a complimentary gift. Respondents were most likely to keep and use wall calendars, followed by desk calendars and the calendar in a day planner.
  • Seventy-eight percent of households that had a printed calendar at home had at least one advertising calendar.
  • Only 24 percent of those respondents who had a print calendar at work stated that their calendars were not an advertising calendar. Thirty‚seven percent reported having one advertising calendar while 39 percent reported having two or more advertising calendars at work.
  • Of those business respondents who reported having just one advertising calendar, 75 percent could remember the name of the company advertised and 77 percent could remember the product or service/message advertised. Moreover, 77 percent had done business with the company that gave them the calendar prior to receipt of the complimentary calendar and 78 percent plan to do business with the company again. Forty-nine percent have referred the company who gave them the calendar to somebody else. Figures for household respondents were similar.
  • Most respondents reveal[ed] that they would purchase a calendar only if they did not get one for free - a free advertising calendar.
  • Insurance agencies were among the top industries that respondents report as those giving promotional or advertising calendars.

As you can see, the return on investment for a promotional calendar order can be immense. Even better, the typical order for promotional calendars is in the hundreds, not thousands, of dollars. What better way is there to keep your agency top of mind than by ordering promotional calendars through the PIA/Mines Press program?
