High Tech Gloves grasp High Tech Marketing

In this world of on-line dating, finding the perfect pair of gloves for safety, work or play is becoming easier than ever. Finally, high tech gloves are meeting its match in social marketing. Surely you’ve heard of YouTube, et al.

Two of our strategic partners are now utilizing video streams to show how their gloves perform. It sure saves time, e-mails, and gas to reach customers needing a quick hand protection solution. Not only do these streams help us demonstrate the gloves, they also help customers make a suitable choice.

See the MAPPA Kronit Gloves in action.

See the MCR Safety HexArmor Gloves in action This link is not for the faint of heart.

I sure wish this technology existed when I was pounding the pavement. What do you think about this concept?

Happy Holidays


We’re taking a short break from the Holiday Glove Rush. But WOW, the snow storms this year certainly made our glove life interesting.

Additionally, based on customer calls & e-mails, I’ve been informed by our customer service department that it looks like the USPS (US Postal Service) has let us (along with our customers) down this year falling behind by days. Not fun after working so hard. Maybe some delays are snow related but not in LA, Miami or the South.

Next week, I’ll share our top sellers for ’08 (since we are a customer centric business) and begin to talk about real issues in the Industrial Glove markets.

Retail versus Industrial Posts

How about a little housecleaning before I even start?

After reviewing my Blog “to-do” list, I soon realized that I would be discussing both retail (consumer) gloves and industrial gloves. There is a big difference between retail fine fashion gloves and gloves for the roughneck industrial users.
It’s for the same reason we have two web portals for our glove business. One for retail customers (Gloves-Online.com)and one for industrial customers (Industrial Gloves-Online.com). This way Industrial Glovers don’t have to deal with distractions with fashion glove navigation and vise versa.

Therefore, when I make a post, I will add the words (Retail or Industrial) at the end of the title. This way, you can ignore a post that doesn’t pertain to your interests. If you don’t see a Retail or Industrial in the title, then the post should be of general interest to everyone. After all, Blogs are supposed to be brief and content focused.
