Promote your business with personalized items from Promo 4-U

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Want to promote your business with eye-catching quality personalized items? Rhonda Barker, owner of Promo 4-U based in her Alta home, can help you.

The business is in its 15th year, Rhonda provides professional and friendly service. The business was located in George and Okoboji before relocating to Alta after Rhonda and Karl Barker were married.

She began as a district representative for a similar company. With a desire to be her own boss, she left to begin her own business. She started with zero customers and the business has grown tremendously. Today she has eight sales representatives working for her throughout Iowa and Minnesota.

The personalization business has changed by leaps and bounds over the years. What began as featuring "cheap plastic stuff" (such as keychains and pens) bearing the name of a business, has stretched into such items as clothing, athletic bags, calendars, food items combined with such items as cutting boards, insulated cloth coolers, ice cream scoops and reusable water bottles made of durable, not cheap, plastic.

"I have access to thousands of suppliers," Rhonda said, carrying more products than imaginable. She is available to offer suggestions and share ideas with anyone wishing to advertise their business or provide gifts for employees.

In addition to the business-related items, Promo 4-U also features cuddly soft personalized baby blankets which can be personalized with the baby's name and birth date, cotton afghans which can be embroidered with the name of a bride and groom or anniversary couple or even customized for a special event taking place in a city or town.

Candles can also be personalized with a photo; this item makes a good gift for a wedding couple, anniversary couple or may also serve as a nice memorial for a loved one that has passed away.

Rhonda enjoys her job.

"I like being my own boss and the good relationship I have with many of my customers."

The ideas are endless. Contact Rhonda at 284-2081 or 800-468-4419 to visit with her about what she can do for you, or look up her web site at
