Preset Silken Kit Case Study

Making the Right Call

Tina Filipski– Tina Berres Filipski

When distributor Lori Bostdorff at Red Promotions in Bellevue, Washington, received a phone call from one of her largest clients asking for gifts for a virtual event just a few weeks away, she knew exactly who to contact. Experience had taught her that PowerStick was the only supplier that could pull off the high-quality attendee gifts needed and get them delivered to recipients’ doorsteps in time.

The event was a three-day virtual conference for a major corporation’s engineering department and the client wanted three gifts for each of the 245 attendees. The plan was for attendees to open one gift together at the start of each day to promote camaraderie. Timing was the biggest challenge on this order as Bostdorff’s client made the request in January and the gifts had to be delivered to recipients no later than February 4.

Bostdorff got right to work. She contacted PowerStick’s Cassidy Shaw and they selected three pre-set kits each packaged in a medium, white SILKEN box with a custom sleeve indicating Day 1, Day 2 or Day 3. A card from the department’s directors accompanied the mailing thanking recipients for taking part of the event.

Inside the boxes were products to ensure a successful virtual conference experience and all products were decorated with the team’s full-color logo. Day One was a TuneUp Kit with a PowerPad wireless charger and Luna Bluetooth® speaker. Day Two was a Boost Box including a Wave wifi extender, FoldStand adjustable phone stand and CableCatch desktop cable organizer. Day Three’s box contained a Spot Pro Kit with Spot Pro Bluetooth two-way finder, Ultra Buds wireless earbuds and Aura light ring.

The packages were drop-shipped to recipients’ homes on January 31 using three-day ground service to ensure delivery by the deadline.

“I chose PowerStick and these kits because of the quick-turn time,” says Bostdorff, who says she uses PowerStick frequently. “It was a last-minute request from the client and we put all of this together in less than three days.”

Bostdorff was delighted to learn that her client loved all of the gifts, especially the quality of the products. “It made my client look like a super star,” she says. “Cassidy knocked it out of the park and Production totally nailed it. Everything was received right on time.”

She was so grateful that she later sent pizza to the PowerStick team at its Ottawa, Ontario, headquarters in appreciation for their flawless execution of this crucial and complex order.

Asked why she chose PowerStick for this particular order, Bostdorff says, “You guys are the only ones who can turn orders like this in record time and Cassidy is just a wizard. All of your products are quality and you were able to make it happen. It was pretty impressive!”
