Turning SWAG into SUCCESS – How To Make Promotional Products Work For You

Why Promotional Products?

Standard advertising mediums such as billboards, radio, and television have some major limitations, especially for small businesses. They're expensive and space is limited. The customer can easily ignore the message. If they do listen, it only stays in the mind a short while without reinforcement. Companies pay billions of dollars every year to ensure their brand doesn't leave the public's consciousness. This presents a problem for businesses who want to get their names out, especially new ones.

A Swag of Memories: Australian bush stories

A quintessential Australian bushman, Brian Taylor has spent most of his life on the land. Working as a drover, a stockman, a fencer, a shearer and a saddler, he has gathered a swag of stories over the years as he travelled way out past the Barcoo, along the dusty plains and beside the dry creek beds under the endless southern sky. In A SWAG OF MEMORIES Brian Taylor shares with us these stories, of the people he has met, the places he has been and the moments, long-gone, that define the traditions of the Australian bush. Like those bush poets and storytellers of days past, Taylor brings to life the characters and the creatures of the bush: men like Dangerous Dan Smith, a hard, self-reliant man who had a gentler talent; Father Peter, a parish priest and occasional hero; Charlie Gibson, an Aboriginal stockman who knew the land better than anyone; and Banjo, the ever-alert dingo watchdog. These colourful and evocative bush tales delightfully capture a slight of Australian life that many of us will never get to see. Luckily, with this collection, you can sit back with a billy of tea and read all about it.

The SWAG Life

“I loved Melinda's first book, SWAG, and she's only gotten better with her latest collection of essays. Some stories particularly touched my heart because she writes of people and places I know well as a fellow hometown girl from Greenville, Alabama. But all the essays are full of universal truths that make you smile and often chuckle out loud. The fact is truth CAN often be funnier as well as stranger than fiction—as with the lady who sends her Mama's cremated remains from the local post office. Melinda's own warmth and self-deprecating humor shine through in her writing in yet another book that can be enjoyed by men and women, older, younger, family, friends, coworkers—everyone. Highly recommended!”
Angela K. Long, The Greenville Advocate

“The SWAG Life is the perfect follow-up to Ms. Thompson's first book. She sees the humor in everyday situations and describes it in a way that is funny, often self-deprecating, and always compassionate. I feel like she could be the lady sitting next to me at the little-league baseball field, or my sister. She's certainly not a stranger, and I love reading her descriptions of random moments from her life—especially where they intersect with mine!” reviewer

Lights Off, Swag On: A Player’s Handbook

Lights Off, Swag On is a series thought up by a group of roommates from Baltimore, Maryland in 2009. The idea was to take the various situations we encountered throughout our college experience. Through “research” and development we’ve finally reached our first product. A Player’s Handbook quickly touches on some of the situations we came across most often. Written from the perspective of Hitch Swagstone, a “dog” who has the same woes when trying to court those of the opposite sex. Covering things from breaking down walls and time management to how to deal with the dreaded ex and handling clingers. A Player’s Handbook addresses those of the male persuasion, but was written in HOPES that women would also take enjoyment in seeing how the male populace thinks. Enjoy a “dog’s” take on a very human problem, “Women don’t know what they want, but we (as men) have to give it to them.”
