Selling Promotional Items to the Health Care Industry in 2017

It has been several months since we published our series on selling promotional items into the health care industry. So today, we’re offering a short refresher course.

Health care doesn’t have to necessarily mean hospitals, dentists, and doctors’ offices; it can also include fitness centers, supplement stores, and medical marijuana dispensaries. Drive around your city and neighboring towns—the selling opportunities are endless.
