Social Media Contest for ESP Online for Macs

Filed under: Community, Industry Initiatives, Member Benefits, News About ASI

I’m the chief technology officer for ASI and I’m also a Mac user, so I’m especially excited that we’re developing ESP Online for Macs that will be available soon to the advertising specialty industry.

To be among the first to be notified when the new ESP Online for Macs is available, register here.  And we’re starting the celebration early by giving away a $250 American Express gift card – good as cash – in a drawing among users who engage with us in social media.  Just share your comments about the new ESP Online for Macs, or any other ASI product if you’re not a Mac user.  Tell us what you think. 

Enter the contest three ways:

—  Post a comment right here on Tim’s blog about the new ESP Online for Macs or any other ASI product.  You might tell us how we’re helping, or what you’d like us to start providing.

The new ESP Online for Macs will run right on your operating system – no Windows required and no third-party software needed (like Parallels). 

If you don’t use ESP Online and you have a Mac, using ESP will change the way you do business.  It allows suppliers to feature their products for distributors, and allows distributors to quickly search and find the best promotional products for their end-buyer clients among nearly every product in the industry.

Watch these sites for more information about ESP Online for Macs, and let me hear from you.  Enter the contest – it’s open now through November 30, 2009 (rules).

ESP Online for Macs: The Revolution

Filed under: Industry Initiatives, Member Benefits, News About ASI

You wanted it, and you got it.  ESP Online for Macs will be here in early 2010. 

That means anyone using a Mac – including myself since I just switched from a PC – will now be able to run ESP directly on their computers.  No other installations or third-party programs are needed, and no additional cost. 

If you want to be among the first to receive ESP Online for Macs, register now at asicentral.com/macintosh

Now, that’s revolutionary. 

The development of ESP Online for Macs has been underway for several months and you’ll get your first look with a demo at the upcoming ASI Show Orlando (Sunday, January 3 – Tuesday, January 5, 2010). 

To read the press release with more details,  click here.

ESP Online is of course the industry’s leading sourcing and marketing program with 2.5 million promotional product searches conducted in a typical month.  About 32,000 distributors use ESP today to access products from 3,500 reputable ASI suppliers and market their products to end-buyers.

In addition, the program allows suppliers to view products (without pricing) from all suppliers included in ESP Online, to help them benchmark their offerings versus the competition.  Suppliers can also view all ASI Supplier Ratings, to learn more about the positions of other suppliers within the system.

For your chance at $250, participate in the ESP social media contest underway now in the very next post after this from our CTO Keith Tuskey

I’d love to hear about your ESP experiences, so post a comment or email me here.  I’m also on Twitter and LinkedIn.
