Beverly Rose sells promotional products. She notes that if you look around your home or office you will find many examples of promotional products including pens, mugs, notepads, baseball caps, water bottles and more, imprinted with company logos and advertising. Beverly comments, “You name it; I’ve sold it!”
Beverly says these products are very popular because physical advertising is inexpensive, long-lasting and always fun to give away. She notes that a business inquiry often begins with, “I found your name and contact information on this pen my friend gave me.”
She got into the business over 20 years ago when her youngest daughter entered the field right out of college. Beverly says, “Her enthusiasm prompted me to learn the business and I've been selling promotional products ever since.”
She came up with the name “The Giveaway Grandma,” and the moniker fits her business and her personality. Beverly explains, “Every person I meet is a potential client. Whether for a large corporation, a nonprofit or a personal celebration, at one time or another, you or someone you know will be ordering imprinted promotional products.” She loves handing out free “Giveaway Grandma” pens to whomever she meets.
Beverly says that her business offers many advantages, especially in this current economy. She began the business in Illinois, then kept it going after a move to California and still finds it’s easy to maintain the business from her more recent home on Whidbey Island. When she first started, she lugged heavy catalogues around to her customers, but in today’s world, all she needs is her computer and phone. She adds, “Now everyone is just a click away.”
On Whidbey Island there is a strong ethic to buy as much from local business people as possible. Beverly repeats the theme by asking people to, “Keep it local and, when the need arises, order your giveaways and business gifts from Beverly Rose, The Giveaway Grandma.”
