Interview with Swire Ho

Swire Ho runs a promotional products company called Garuda, named for the guardians of The Buddha. What’s so special about a “swag” guy? Well, HE is. And so is the way that he thinks about doing business. In this podcast, you’ll learn how this sound-engineer turned CD duplicator turned promotional products producer engages in business. Hint - it’s intentional and it’s focused on creating unique experiences Business advice that stands out from this podcast: Start with: What are you hoping to achieve? And I believe that we should start each day that way, not just when we’re thinking about creating a promotional product. Next: Plan your marketing calendar. Know what events you’re holding and buy in the off season. Don’t be afraid of crazy ideas! Swire’s favorite kind of customer comes to him with: “I have this crazy idea, can you help me?” If you’re thinking promotional products, consider: what item will your audience not buy themselves but will use every day? There’s so much more here, from pareto’s law to getting referrals. You have to listen in.
