PPAI’s PromoPolls gauge industry participants’ positions on a wide variety of promotional products and business subjects. The poll, included in every issue of PPB Newslink and on the PPAI Media website, provides an anecdotal snapshot of insights on key issues.

In September, PromoPolls quizzed industry professionals for their take on various aspects of business. It asked, “What is your biggest pet peeve about receiving emails?” Forty-three percent said emails that are overly wordy and don’t get to the point, 23 percent said emails without the sender’s company name or contact information and nine percent said emails without a relevant subject line, while 25 percent of respondents indicated that their email pet peeves weren’t on the list.

PromoPolls also asked readers if they have had to scale back on their company’s offerings because of a shortage of labor. While almost half (46 percent) said no and they don’t expect to, 42 percent of respondents said yes, somewhat, and eight percent said yes to a great extent. Four percent of those polled said no, but it could happen this year.
