Trippies Gifts

Kevin Davis, President


"Right Angle Strategies provided my company valuable assistance and advice in changing Trippies marketing model to include a nationwide network of top-notch independent sale representatives.  Previously the company dealt exclusively with distributors and other large accounts.


To affect this change, Laura Blunt and Stu Teller introduced me to the principals of the rep firms and assisted me in negotiating the appropriate agreements. They then prepared the needed tools to enable the reps to efficiently sell our products and affected follow-up communications with the firms. Laura and Stu also have been a huge help in trade show planning including showroom/booth design, show promotion and rep coordination at the shows. In addition, they have provided insight on new products, methods to achieve sales goals and assistance in evaluating promotional opportunities.

Right Angle has helped Trippies through a challenging time in the gift industry and I look forward to exciting growth in the upcoming years."

George Shuetz, President


Natural Life engaged Right Angle to guide us thru the implementation of our new website and the ensuing marketing plan. Their expertise and “hands on” approach were invaluable to us during the execution of this very successful initiative. The results have been paying significant dividends since introduction.

Bruce Michel, President


We have been working with Right Angle Strategies for the past eighteen months. Their combined work has set us on a path for major growth and saved our company almost a million dollars over the course of our relationship.


Stu originally worked with us on reviewing our national sales force and developing a successful sales strategy. Laura worked on our web presence, refocusing our branding, and internal structure issues. Their work is excellent!

We have since asked them to help us with a number of additional projects including sourcing and personnel searches. They are smart, focused and very effective. Our sales reflect that good work.


Molly Holm, President


"Laura and Stu are amazing! They know the gift industry backwards and forward. They have helped our business grow tremendously! We would recommend any company considering hiring them to be a part of their team. They can help you walk through many steps of growing a business without having to learn things the hard way. Their combined knowledge is vast and worth every penny! Plus they are fun people to be around! You will enjoy them!!! ."

Theresa Davis, President

Right Angle Strategies offered us the opportunity to look at our company in ways we never thought about before. In just one afternoon, we learned more about our sales and products than in the previous six years! Laura Blunt is a genius!  I would highly recommend bringing Right Angle Strategies on board as a strategic partner; it is simply one of the best decisions I’ve made!

Ornament Central, LLC

Christine D. Casey, President


After just 5 years in business we were experiencing growth to the point that we could not continue to run Ornament Central based on our instincts anymore.  We had certainly grown beyond our knowledge base, but we had no idea where to go for the kind of help we needed.  We were so fortunate that Right Angle Strategies was recommended to us- and, by the way, enthusiastically recommended, by dozens of our business contacts.


There are consulting firms with the knowledge needed to help a formerly-small, family-owned company like ours to grow, and perhaps some that have the contacts and the experience that RAS has in the industry.  However, more important than that, for us, has been how easy and enjoyable it has been to work with them.  Every one of us feels comfortable contacting them, and agree that their biggest strength is the fact that they make us feel as though we are their most important priority.  We have benefited greatly by the fact that our meetings are relaxed, yet incredibly productive, and the goals they help us set each month have kept us directed as we have not been able to be on our own. As we look back on the growth we have had at their direction, we are amazed.  

Not only has our business grown in new directions in the short time we have worked with RAS;  their guidance and the comfort level we feel in working with them has, I believe, helped us to work better with one another as well.
