Marketing, Promotional Product Ideas / 19.02.2018

Too often I receive calls from clients or new prospects needing promotional products in a rush for an upcoming trade show or event. Usually, that last minute call is because promotional products were never considered until the very end. While we do offer rush promotional items as quickly as same day production, these items often lose their effectiveness if they are treated as an afterthought with no plan. If you are buying promotional items only to randomly give them away at your next trade show, you're missing a huge opportunity to create a return on these investments. If simply handed out at random to every schmuck who passes your trade show booth, these items will likely not have the effect desired, which is to help those attendees remember your company.

When you buy promotional products, it's important those items be part of a bigger plan. Your promos should always help lead to meeting a specific goal. Shortcuts don't work when buying promotional products if you want the maximum return on your investment. A plan is critical. But before you can plan, you must have a goal. Gone are the days you can randomly hand out branded items and expect grand results. You now have to be more creative than your competitors to be memorable. You can bet your competition is trying to outsmart you to win more of the market share. While promotional products are great items to help promote customer loyalty, they are also excellent tools to use for acquiring new customers. Below are a few examples of goals aimed at new customer acquisition along with suggested promotional items that should do the trick.
