According to the Advertising Specialty Institute (a marketing and education organization serving the promotional products industry), it’s hard to beat promotional products when it comes to cost per brand impression.
Is there ever a right Time for a promotional product?
Products that are either used frequently or used in high-traffic public places provide the most impressions and thus better value for every marketing dollar spent. One such commodity is a pen. When we first started in business and went out for a meal. We used a credit card to pay check, and, making sure that the quality of the pen I used was a favorite, I would simply trade pen with the one that accompanied the check. I lost count after 100 pens were given out. I wondered how many people saw my company’s brand just from that one action?
How do I select the right Item?
My first choice for discovering popular products is google. Let’s say I have a pet store. I would look under “Pet Store Providers of Promotional Supplies.” Understanding that promotional suppliers always highlight their most popular products first, I would make a list of those products and choose ones that made the most sense. That emotional connection further strengthens the value by associating good feelings with your brand, by getting more people talking about your brand, and by increasing brand recall. In my example, typically, products like dog toys, leashes, and dog waste bag dispensers were the answer since they are used multiple times a day, further increasing brand impressions.
