The First Annual ePromos Promotional Trend Report

Newsletter: The First Annual ePromos Promotional Trend Report – December 09, 2005

Because we’re the “Promo Know-How People”, we’ve seen just about everything you can imagine in the world of promotional products come across our desks. So, it should come as no surprise that we have an uncanny knack for sniffing out the “What’s Hot & What’s Not” of these things! And in the promo business “hot” is important, because it let’s your message stand out from the rest of the crowd. See below for some of our cutting edge suggestions and predictions.
Three New Promotional Ideas

Customized Jelly Belly ® Bean Machine from $25.54
One category of promotional items that has been showing tremendous growth in the last few years is Food & Drink gifts. And why not? Everyone loves candy. One product that’s sure to be an instant classic is our Customized Jelly Belly ® Bean Machine. In addition to being a thoughtful and enduring gift, it’s a great way of getting people to remember your logo, since they’ll probably find themselves returning to it over and over again.

Illusions Convention Tote from $4.83
Some things never go out of style, like the promotional tote bag. The Illusions Convention Tote is a new twist on this long-time staple of tradeshows, promotional programs and resale. Made from lightweight vinyl, it’s designed to make your logo stand out. Not your everyday giveaway, it’s something people will want to have and to keep. Try coordinating it with the matching the classic Illusions Notebook for a complete look and higher perceived value.

iPod ® Silicone Case from $3.39
Technology is one promotional category that just keeps getting hotter. And luckily for you, ePromos offers items at a range of prices to allow you to take advantage of this trend, even if you don’t have a Bill Gates’ budget. Our iPod ® Silicone Case lets you wrap everyone’s favorite new gadget in your company’s message. You can even custom match the case colors to coordinate with your logo.

What’s Hot and What’s Hotter!
While fads come and go, there is one thing that we can say for certain will endure and that’s style. This means that whether the item you select for your promotions is a classic (e.g., a pen, t-shirt, or bag) or something more cutting edge (such as the recent trend toward technology gifts) nothing makes an impression like choosing something that sets your message apart. And high style doesn’t have to mean high cost either, because ePromos has a range of unique products in every category to suit your budget.
Take, for example, the promotional pen; it’s an established, reliable and inexpensive way of putting your logo in people’s hands. But how can you improve upon perfection? Simple, by adding novelty to a common item, you can grab people’s attention in a whole new way. Case in point: our Go Pen with Removable Toy Car (SKU #8816118), it takes the familiar promotional pen and adds a cool new element to it. The result is an item that makes a fun statement AND that people really notice and want to have…and that’s as hot as anything out of Milan.

Thinking Outside the Gift Box.
According to a recent article carried by The Associated Press, “The whole point of giving gifts to clients or customers is to let them know how much you appreciate their business, and how highly you think of them. Giving the obvious doesn’t convey that message, but giving creatively will.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
The keyword here is “creative.” It may be tempting to fall back on the same old, same old, but take our word for it; taking some time to seek out new and different promotional solutions will really pay off in the long run in terms of message exposure and relationship building. Luckily, ePromos is here to make your search easy.
