Promo Key Owner Earns Promotional Products Industry CAS Recognition


Ellyn Bresinger of Promo Key LLC achieves premier professional designation from Promotional Products Association International (PPAI)


MANCHESTER, N.H. – Ellyn Bresinger, owner and operator of Promo Key LLC based in Manchester, N.H., has earned a Certification of Advertising (CAS) administered by Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), the largest international not-for-profit organization for over 16,000 members in the promotional products industry.

The industry certification is the result of broad training in a number of areas including an overview of the $24 billion-plus promotional products industry, business communication programs, best practices, supplier-distributor relations, advertising and marketing, product safety, and business ethics.

“I have been involved with delivering promotional products for 30 years, and appreciate the detailed insight into the industry that the CAS curriculum provided,” Bresinger said. “In some areas the instruction served as important refreshers, while in other ways they highlighted advanced products and modern practices. All of this I can use to help business owners, both locally and regionally, to further promote their company and operations.”

Promo Key has helped businesses thrive and succeed for over 3 decades. The full-service promotional products company provides merchandise as well as promotional planning to help companies meet goals. Promo Key offers complete sourcing, manufacturing, and decorating of all products as well as off-site warehousing and fulfillment. The company strives to apply its knowledge and products to best appeal to target markets and help boost a company’s bottom line.

Industry certification through PPAI is acquired through a combination of dedicated certification classes, demonstrated years of employment in the industry, elective courses, and a successful demonstration of expertise.

The Certified Advertising Specialist (CAS) Certification requires 25 hours from a structured industry-approved curriculum of courses, along with 25 elective credits, completion of the Trained Advertising Specialist (TAS) certificate, and a passing score on the CAS Certification dedicated course quizzes.

The Certified Advertising Specialist, and advanced Master Advertising Specialist and Master Advertising Specialist Plus certifications are the promotional products industry's premier professional designations. Individuals with a PPAI certification are industry leaders -- those who have attained a higher standard of professional competence, knowledge and experience.

The promotional products medium is an essential element in the marketing communications mix. A “branded” tangible product turns an ordinary message into a marketing experience an audience can see, touch, hear, smell, and even taste. Promotional products are one of the most efficient and effective media buys with the advertising industry.
