Let’s face, it we have all received promotional products that we, as customers, find useless. These items almost always get thrown away after coming home from the event. Products like these are truly just a waste of money. The purpose of promotional products is to remind people of your brand every time they see it. How do you find an effective promotional product that will have a lasting effect? The number one way is to give your clients a product they can actually use!
Fortunately, we have came up with a list of 5 often forgot about promotional items that everybody uses on a daily basis but never buys for themselves. Here they are:
You’ve most likely used one of these before. They’re life savers. We have several sitting in our break room that get used daily to seal up our chips and frozen bagged-goods. But we’ll bet you can’t remember the last time that you purchased one for yourself. Here is a perfect opportunity to put your company’s logo front and center on the clip so every time your customers go to their pantry, they see your logo right in front of them.
Tote bags are becoming more and more popular every day that the “green” movement pushes forward. A majority of grocery stores now offer re-useable tote bags to replace plastic bags that get thrown away. Beat the rest of the world to this one and put your company’s logo on a tote bag so that everyone in the grocery store knows about your company.
Refrigerator Magnets make great kitchen décor. Well, kind of. Most promotional fridge magnets we receive are really plain with a basic, boring design. But you know what? We still use them regardless. It’s just one of those things that will receive use no matter what. Put a good design on your magnet and make your clients want your brand on their refrigerator.
Draw string bags are USEFUL; especially at the right event. The next time you go to a tradeshow, take drawstring bags with you to hand out to potential clients and you will be their life saver. Why? So they can put all the useless promotional products they get from other companies into your bag. Pretty soon, your logo will be the only one visible in the entire room!
Mouse pads are a necessity for every office desk. The mouse pad I’m using right now is advertising a lawn and garden company based out of Kansas. I am reminded about their business every time I log on to my computer. If I lost it, you bet I would be looking to replace it. Everybody needs a mouse pad.
All of these items have a use, so the next time you are searching for promotional items remember to ask yourself , is it cool? Would you want one?
