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.

Promotional Products Goals

Promotional Products Longevity According to a recent study by the Promotional Products Association International, 81% of people keep promotional products for more than a year. Odds are the 19% that chose not to keep their items for more than a year were given either a disposable product, consumable item, or a low-quality promotional product. For this particle article, I'll be focusing on higher quality items, which have the incredible ability to stick around for many years to continue to advertise for your company.

The Need For Education

Sometimes I have comical discussions with prospects who don't yet understand the power of promotional products. That means they need more education about this incredibly effective advertising medium.

Additionally, you want a firm that is committed to providing the best options to meet your goals.
