Ideas For Promotional Items
To get some ideas of promotional Items, we need to have a think about what the application is. Promotional gifts are a great way to raise brand awareness, boost your brand and create a lasting impression of your product/ service for years.
How many of us have branded pens at home that have been in the same draw and used time and time again, never seeming to run out.
How many of us get a calendar sent by the same company year on year and it keeps going up.
However, depending on what your business is, you do need to choose a product that is suited to the application. So for example, if you are a medical company, then choosing a promotional product related to the medical sector would work well.
Some ideas for promotional items could be as follows:
- Hand warmers (in the shape of a heart)
- Nutritional bars
IT & Technology:
- Computer Mouse
- Mouse Mat
- USB Stick
- Iphone case
- Stress Balls (house shaped or builders hat shaped)
- Letter Openers (in the shape of a crane
Keeping things relevant is always good. However there are a few low cost items if your industry/company does not really draw a really suitable gift:
The idea being that they are items that people will use which are practical and not throw away. The idea being that your company name, phone number or website is visually accessible.
Most of the promotional items mentioned above are very economical, however you may want to step things up for specific clients or high spending customers, so you could consider the following:
- MP3 Players
- Digital Cameras
- Mobile Phones
Getting promotional gifts such as branded hats or t-shirts may be wasting money. As people do not tend to use items like that (unless it is a premier football teams shirt or the like); but things like golf accessories, water bottles for the gym can work well.
A good thing to do is to talk to a few marketing agencies to get some ideas for promotional items, or the application you have in mind (such as):
- An Upcoming Event/Exhibition
- Sending Gifts To New/Existing Customers
- Corporate Gifts As A Sales Tool
These are the main reasons for companies using promotional items and gifts are well placed to be able to offer advice for a suitable gift for any occasion.
