Importance of Promotional Items

promotional itemsYou may have the best business in the business, but if you’re not able to get the word out about your services, you won’t be successful. That’s why promotional materials are so important: it’s all about marketing your company, and making sure your customers and your potential customers know your name.

Cost Effectiveness

Promotional items are actually an extremely cost-effective way to promote your business. Low-cost marketing like pens or pencils with company logos, mugs that you scatter around the office, and even things like USB drives or coasters, can make a lasting impact on your customers—for very little upfront cost.

Make an Impression

In fact, according to Design Hill, six in ten consumers keep promotional products that they pick up for up to two years. And, about 89% of consumers can remember the company that gave them the promotional product—and their experience with the company—even years after receiving the item.

Expand the Brand

Promotional materials also work in a larger function, in addition to marketing your services and driving business—they promote and define your brand. Your goal in creating a company brand is to have something striking that makes an impression on people; promotional materials can help you do that by getting your brand and logo in front of consumer’s faces, and making an impression on them.

Your brand is important; which means, it doesn’t just matter what the logo looks like that you print up on some promotional pens and mugs—the quality of the pens and mugs matters, too. That’s why we at Promo Products.com are committed to quality materials and quality printing, guaranteed to expand your business, promote your brand, and bring in business.

6 Corporate Gift Trends For The Holidays

The Holidays are coming…have you ordered your Corporate Gifts?

Here are 6 Corporate Gift Trends for the Holidays from ASI*!

  1. Food. Yes, food. Sometimes the most common gift is the one that’s most enjoyable. That’s certainly the case with promotional food products, which ASI data shows is the most popular holiday promo item outside of gift cards.
  2. Athleisure. This holiday season, formal apparel gifts are out, while relaxed apparel – commonly called athleisure wear – are in. But ironically, they’re not just for leisure anymore. “The way we dress for the office is changing due to the strength of the athleisure movement, making us rethink what we wear to work,” says Vicki Ostrom, a senior designer at SanMar, a Washington-based supplier.
  3. Fleece. When you think fleece this holiday season, think beyond traditional outerwear. For example, fleece ponchos, beanies, blankets, scarves and drawstring backpacks are in style, and helpfully one-size-fits-all. gifts-insert
  4. Bags. If a client is looking for a luxury gift in 2016, leather bags should be one of your go-to items. In fact, one ASI client said a leather duffel stands out as the best gift he’s ever received. “Obviously it’s on the high end, but I use it frequently and see the branding on it each time to remind me who gave it to me,” he says.
  5. Adult Coloring Books. Looking for a fun and budget-friendly gift that can engage and thank customers? Adult coloring books might be a strong option. Because coloring books can be specially designed, they work well across just about any market – from health care to insurance to education. Adult coloring book suppliers can tailor every page to fit a client’s desired message.
  6. Tech. Tech promo items are still as trendy as ever, especially with younger demographics and for companies that have employees that are constantly on the go. But in this vast field of options, what should you showcase? ASI recommends wireless speakers, headphones, power banks and other mobile-type items.
