Promotional products are items that a company gives to a potential customer in hopes of earning their business. These items are useful and are supposed to benefit the person in some way, shape or form. What’s special about these items is that they have the company logo engraved right on them. That way whenever this potential customer uses the item they are constantly being exposed to the company name. The idea is that this hopefully sparks enough interest in the customer so that next time he or she sees the company whilst living on a day to day basis they will be more willing to buy from them. These promotional items pique the interest of the customer in hopes of earning business.
There is quite a bit of science involved behind the scenes when it comes to these marketing giveaways. A company can’t just stand in the middle of the sidewalk handing out random things. The company has to pick a specific place and time that makes sense to the person. For example, one of the most common places that these items are given out are at trade shows. Trade shows are a perfect place to setup a booth that is visually interesting to the customer. Once the customer comes to the booth the salesman introduce the company, the idea behind it and then offers them one of these promotional items.
More than just the venue, you also have to decide what type of item you’re going to be given out. There are some items that are universally good to hand out to anyone at anytime and some items that are specific to specific venues. Some of these universal items include, but are not limited to promotional sunscreen, logo lotion, custom hand sanitizer bottles and promotional antibacterial sprays. All 4 of these items are things that almost everyone uses on a daily basis. A company can give these things out safely without any fear of looking out of place.
Items that are more specific to specific venues include, but are not limited to car towels, calculators and gel pens. These items are more geared toward individual people. Mechanics can always use an extra car towel. Since car towels are such long lasting items these would be a great choice for anyone hoping to earn a mechanics business. The list of custom logo products goes on and on. Companies that are looking to get their name out should consider these types of promotional products.
