One promotional item that never seems to lose its desirable factor is the bobble head. What makes bobble heads so sought after? It could be the fact that they are collectibles. It could be the design aspect of them. It could be the character for which they are honoring. Who knows? One thing is certain however, bobble heads given out as a promotional product cannot be exhausted in the eyes of consumers.
Many Major League Baseball teams have tried to tire their fans on the bobble head give-a-ways, it just doesn’t work. Take for example, the Milwaukee Brewers organization, who will give away nine bobble heads as promotional nights this season.
“We give away a bobblehead, it automatically becomes a sellout,” Rick Schlesinger, COO of the Milwaukee Brewers, recently told ESPN. “Every year we think we might have exhausted the bobblehead craze here in Wisconsin, and it doesn’t happen.”
In addition, bobble head technology is on the up-and-up in 2015. Remember the days when you could hardly see the character the bobble head was trying to portray? Now, bobble heads are so advanced that they are putting microchips in them that allow the character to talk and say phrases.
A new survey by The Wall Street Journal shows that Major League Baseball teams that gave away bobblehad products to fans this year increased their attendance by an average of 4.8% on the days of the promotions. In fact, teams like the Seattle Mariners and the Cincinnati Reds increased their attendance for bobblehead giveaway days by more than 40%., and there is no reason it can’t raise attendance at your event too. It’s a great way to raise awareness for anything you could think of as well. Bobble heads give you a way to relate with your consumers on a mutual favorite character, as well as be creative with your promoting. There are endless possibilities with a bobble head.
