Kaeser & Blair is a leader in the promotional products industry, with a history and reputation rivaled by few. If you've ever been given an ink pen or a coffee mug with a company logo on it, there's a good chance that product came from Kaeser & Blair.
As an independent business owner for Kaeser & Blair, you can earn money selling these in-demand promotional products to companies and organizations. This opportunity is perfect for those who have a strong interest in direct sales opportunities, but don’t find the idea of selling makeup, jewelry or purses particularly appealing.
Why Promotional Products?
Almost all business and organizations use promotional products because they are a very effective form of advertising. When a marketing message is delivered on a useful item, it helps to ensure that a potential customer doesn't forget about that company. When someone is given a hat, pen, or coffee mug for free, they may be more inclined to do business with that company because a gift leaves a lasting, positive impression.
As a Kaeser & Blair business owner, you have potential customers and clients in nearly every industry. If you think about it, you probably have promotional items in your home that came from a variety of places – restaurants, doctors’ offices, car dealerships, your children's schools, retail stores, and more. This is because every business and organization benefits from getting its name and logo circulating to help increase popularity.
And due to this constant demand, the promotional products industry is thriving. In 2018, the promotional products industry hit a record high of $24.7 billion in sales, and is expected to grow in the coming years. This means that there is an opportunity for a lucrative career as a Kaeser & Blair Promotional Products business owner.
Products Offered by Kaeser & Blair
Kaeser & Blair offers a lot more than just mugs and pens. As a promotional products business owner you get the chance to sell shirts, bags, caps, office accessories, electronics, calendars, USB drives, health and safety products, buttons and badges, housewares, tools, sporting goods, and even automotive accessories to your customers.
What You Do As a Kaeser & Blair Business Owner
As a Kaeser & Blair business owner, your job is to get in touch with businesses and organizations that may need custom-imprinted promotional and advertising products, and introduce them to what Kaeser & Blair has to offer. The company has a Best Buys catalog that you can show to potential customers to display the most popular and best-selling items.
When a business decides to buy from you, you simply take the order and submit it to Kaeser & Blair. After that, your work is basically done. Kaeser & Blair will pay you upon receipt of the order, and handle the order processing, filling, distributing, and even billing. All you have to do is take the order and submit it. Kaeser & Blair will pay you your industry-leading profits via direct deposit, often within 24 hours.
Benefits of Being a Kaeser & Blair Business Owner
First and foremost, you are not required to keep or distribute any inventory. This is different from many other direct selling companies, as you are typically required to maintain a certain amount of inventory while you sell the products. Additionally, there are no big upfront franchise fees.
With Kaeser & Blair, you also get the privilege of a flexible work schedule. You can work whenever you want – full- or part-time – and from whatever location you choose.
The average profit is 20 percent of the sale price, allowing you to earn up to $20,000 annually part-time, and up to $185,000 annually full-time. However there are no commission caps, so your earnings are directly related to how much work you want to put in.
Your earnings will depend on how successful you are selling to businesses and organizations. However, in many cases the products sell themselves since just about every business and organization out there has a need for customized promotional products.
