When you are giving away a promotional sticker, you are representing your brand, so customers feel as if they know someone who works for the business. This allows for them to feel more of a connection and responsibility to use you and your business.

Also, with the addition of a bright design, it allows for your customers/attendees to become a “walking billboard”. They will be walking around with your sticker on them and promoting your business at the same time. This is not an opportunity to be missed!

When is a good time to use promotional sticker?

To be quite honest, any time is a good time to use a promotional sticker. They are not a seasonal product compared to others, such as umbrellas and sun block. This means that they are a perfect product to have for any event.

However, to contrast the above points there are certain times when a promotional sticker is not the best promotional product to be using. For example, if your business is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, you wouldn’t be wanting to be giving customers a sticker as this wouldn’t last for a long time. Instead, you could possible give them a promotional mug, bag or pen.

To conclude, a promotional sticker is a great product for the majority of events. Not only are they a handy product to giveaway, but they are also cost effective too. With the addition of a bright design, they are perfect for use at load of different events, so you might want to buy more than you need for your first event to take full advantage of the economies of scale.

Why Pens are a marketing mainstay

The pen, in some capacity, has been used throughout history. Some earlier examples of the “pen” in the traditional sense date back as far as 3100bc, where a paste was used to scribe hieroglyphics on to papyrus. In this blog, we will explore the relevance and importance of the pen to your marketing campaign.

An essential product:

Pens are without a doubt, essential. There are no two ways about it. With the digital age engulfing us with wave upon on wave of brand new and innovative technologies, making our lives far easier than ever before. In combination with the rise of “in-hand” such as mobile phones and tablets, making it even easier to not use the humble pen. However, many a time, how often do you strive for a pen in order to, take down a number, scrawl a succinct note or leave a message for someone. Despite the advancement in technology, it still has a secure foothold in every household or business.

 Advertising Space:

Not only is the pen a household essential, they are a marketing essential also. The prevalence of the pen knows little bounds. The pen as a concept is painfully universal. It is an implement that is used across all countries, being used by those of all ages and backgrounds. It is very apparent that the pen makes for a great promotional product in the regard. With it being a product in, effectively everybody’s home, it makes for a ridiculously effective promotional product. This is for a myriad of reasons. One of the most prevalent aspects is that being that if the pen in question were to have a company logo or brand on it, it allows your customer to become familiar with your companies branding and name subconsciously. This means that further down the line if the said person requires your product or service down the line, it gives you a defined edge over your competitors in that regard. Another would be the secondary user of a pen, individuals that are a secondary consumer of your pen. The secondary consumer offers a unique position in that regard, this is often a friend or even relative of the customer, who see the product and can pose questions. Such as “where’d you get your pen from?” or “what logo does it have on it?” This allows you to access multiple audiences with something so humble and minute.

 Cost Effective:

The Grace Stylus Pen, available at Promo Parrot

A hugely beneficial thing about using pens as a marketing tool is the cost-effectiveness. Pens are a marvellous way to get more bang for your buck. They are a great product to buy in bulk, for a variety of situations or events. A good example would be a job or apprenticeship fair. The variety of promotional merchandise being exchanged during this time is unrivalled. It makes for a great way to get your promotional products out there. Another way of doing this is by leaving them in business-oriented locations. It is a common practice for individuals for representatives of companies to “accidentally” leave pens behind in buildings or meetings. This acts as a way of subtly advertising a company without being overly encroaching. It is also a cheaper alternative to advertising rather than other avenues such as PPC and SEO optimisation, or TV and Radio advertisements.

Speaking conclusively the humble pen is a great way to get your brand name out there, with its overall universal utility in combination with the sheer value for money.

Why choose promotional products?

Why Choose Promotional ProductsWhy should you use promotional products? This is a huge question that is asked by many different businesses every year. This article is going to cover why you should choose promotional products.

There are many different reasons in which promotional products should and can be used. They are as follows:

1. Get your brand recognised

Robinsons Baseline Bottle

Using promotional products allows you to get your brand noticed. No matter the promotional product they are always noticed, this is down to the nature of people being quite nosy. People want to know what is going on, so when they see something different they want to know what it is and where it came from. Items like promotional mugs are a great advertising medium as they allow you to use them in your general everyday life, whilst being able to advertise the brand.

2. Allow your clients to make use of the product

Don’t buy promotional merchandise that is not inline with both your target audience and your promotional campaign. This could have a negative effect on the overall perception of your business, meaning that you start to lose your potential and current clients.

Cow Stress ToyThis can be prevented by ensuring that you’re careful with the choice of promotional product. If you were a music business, you wouldn’t want to have a product that was not related to your business. If you were to choose a promotional item that is more aimed at a business that sells TV and Technology, then your target audience may not appreciate the effort that has gone into the choice of promotional product.

3. Have a practical use for the product

Promotional products are not just for the sake of having them, they must have a use that is practical for both the company and the clients. If the product is not practical then the clients who receive them, simply will not use them as they are not of any practical use.

All promotional products that are purchased, have a use for them already in mind. Therefore, the above issue is not a huge issue for all companies. However, when it comes to smaller businesses that are looking for a smaller quantity of promotional product they should then be considering which promotional product to purchase depending on the needs of their clients.

4. Stick to what you know will work

If you have previously used promotional items to promote your business, you should assess the practicality of the product and whether the product was useful to your promotional campaign. When you have the answers to the above questions you are able to stick to what you know will work.

If the promotional product that you had used didn’t enhance your promotional campaign, then you know that the product isn’t right for you. However, if you find the opposite and the product worked you should stick to it as it has helped you to reach more of your potential target audience.

To conclude, promotional products should be used in 2018 as they are always a good mean to engage with your customer. This then allows you to make a connection with your clients and allow them to see that you actually care about the business that they generate for you.

Most effective ways to remind your customers of your brand!

Most effective ways to remind your customers of your brandThe cost it sometimes takes to get someone to purchase once can sometimes be a lot more than you realise. Money can go on various different things, which makes repeat purchases that extra bit more valued. The great thing is that once they have already purchased with you, convincing them to purchase again won’t be as difficult as they know how you work and trust your service and business practices. The only issue comes with ensuring that you are kept fresh in their mind so they will come to you again. Luckily this can be very inexpensive and in this article we are going to discuss various methods of reminding your customers of your brand!

Email

Marketing via electronic mail has been a very popular technique in the past decade with the rise of the internet. Everyone has an email address in today’s world and, because you have worked with them before, you should have theirs. So don’t be afraid to send a group mail out to all the people in your customer list. It keeps them up-to-date with your products and business and will remind all of your customers of yourselves when you do send it out.Email Marketing

Google banners advertisements

The rise of the internet has also allowed one of the biggest brands in the world to flourish, that being Google. One of the many services they provide is Google Ad Banners where you can advertise your company on lots of different websites. This is relevant to this blog post as these advertisements allow you to truly customise your message to your customers. This is because your website will tell Google what customers have been on your website. They will then use this to advertise your banners specifically to them. This allows you to market to your customers, always reminding them of your brand and bringing them back for more.Google Banner Ads

Promotional products

One of the best techniques to constantly remind your brand has to be promotional items. For those who don’t know, promotional products are items that are printed with a company’s logo and artwork which the client will keep and use in their everyday life. This works especially well with products like promotional mugs as the customer will use them a lot when making teas and coffees for themselves, friends and family. This means that every time they are used they are being reminded of your brand.Promotional Products

Social media

Almost everyone checks in on social media at least once a day which makes it a great marketing tool. Because you have already worked with your client, they are more likely to follow your social media channels. This means that doing regular posts with a various different media will give you the opportunity to reconnect with them and sell more products to them. It is also great for building your brand up as social media allows you to really show off your company’s character. Showing your style, sense of humour and opinions can make customers more engaged with your content. Some of the most successful company social media pages are ones where they don’t just sell items but exemplify their personality. This will constantly remind them of your company as they will not only see your posts come up in their feeds but may even seek out your posts because of the charm that you exude.Social Media

Direct mail marketing

Although email marketing has become very popular in the past couple of years, companies are not abandoning the old methods of direct mail marketing. People check their post every day and will usually open every envelope they receive. This means if you were to send them a newsletter or a leaflet with your branding and products on there they would most likely give it some attention at least. A great way to remind them of your brand while recommending products that they may be interested in.Direct Mail

6 reasons promotional products have to remain part of your marketing strategy

Out of sight, out of mind – it’s an old saying, but it’s especially true about customer relations. We have all been given something with a logo on it, and we often use it every day. But how do you know that what you are doing with your marketing placement is working? How do you continue to ensure that your brand is at the forefront of a customer’s mind, and how do you stand out from the competition? Below are 6 reasons why we believe that every marketing strategy can from including promotional products as a part of the overall campaign.

1 . Create lasting awareness

Research from the Promotional Product Association International (PPAI) in the UK shows that 62% of people remember the name and details of a company that gave them a promotional product. A good promotional item should become an ongoing reminder of your brand, every day that it is used. Customer loyalty and even improved customer relations can result from the clever use of a promotional gift, creating an immediate appreciation and gratitude that forges a positive link. By including your contact details on a new product, new customers are also more likely to call you as you are at such easy reach. It’s a great long-term business card!

2 . Access to valuable advertising space

The majority of people are at work for 8 hours a day, and many sit in the one place, at their desk during that time period. If your current or prospective client is using your branded materials or promo gifts in the office, you have secured the most valuable advertising space in the world – right on their office desk! A well-selected promotional product can become a permanent billboard of your brand and your message within a workplace. Desk space is one area that should be targeted by all businesses.Advertising Space on a Desk

3 . Add personal value to your general marketing message

If you know your customer-base, and you understand what makes them tick, you can add a personal dimension to your general marketing message. A good promo product can help you localise and customise your brand message. By making clever-use of an interesting promo gift and adding an appealing logo or design you can increase the perceived value and desirability of the item to a particular audience. For instance, if you had a promotional umbrella, you would want this umbrella to be perceived as a promotional product that is both useful and practical.

4 . Leverage the perceived value of a gift

The average person has no idea of the cost of producing promotional items. They are more likely to over-estimate the cost as their assumptions are based on the perceived purchase cost of just one item, not many. As a marketer, you can take advantage of this perception by bulk-purchasing your promotional products for far less cost that their individual retail value, but the perceived value to the recipient will be far higher. This is particularly useful when providing premium promotional products, as the person who receives your promotional gift will assume that they have been given quite a good present and will want to hold onto it and use it. For example, a product that costs you £5 can represent a value of £15 to the recipient. When a product is bundled with a complimentary piece of merchandise, the total apparent value of the overall package is increased substantially beyond that of the cost of the original item.

 5 . Correctly targeted promotional merchandise is cost effective

Research shows that 62% of people recall the details of the company who provided them with a promotional item. The key to making the most of this statistic starts with knowing your target market. Niche-market messages coupled with good promotional products can effectively spearhead the correct market segment for your brand. To make this a cost-effective and ideally profitable marketing campaign in the long-term, you need to make sure that the cost of producing the right promotional product will achieve levels of recall that are far greater than general media advertising. This type of marketing can also assist you with budget control and accurate break-even calculations.Promotional products can be cost effective

6 . Three dimensional advertising

In today’s digital world, so many giveaways come in the form of an impersonal discount code or an email link. However, despite the technology, humans are still very much the same, and people still love something that they can touch and feel. Receiving a free tangible object is exciting for most people, and usually far more interesting than any digital promotion. Creating an item that is tactile, personalised and meaningful enhances brand awareness. The resurgence of vinyl records in the digital music age is an example of the need for people to have and hold something physical. People like things that they feel are ‘for them’ or ‘about them’. The next time you are thinking of a promotional item, consider that a tangible product can have far more meaning to someone than anything in the digital world.Three Dimensional Advertising

There is another issue that many companies are now considering when they are purchasing their promotional products. The reusable plastics trade is growing and this is down to the eye-opening documentary that has been run on Sky Atlantic, about plastic being disposed of in the sea. This has made more companies aware of the fact that if they are not using reusable plastic, they could essentially be contributing to this. Due to the above, many companies are now choosing to use reusable plastic items for their promotions. As the Americano Travel Mug is a plastic travel mug this allows for them to be used multiple times, with no need to throw it away. Therefore, this is one alley for all companies to be exploring.

With many mobile phone companies now incorporating wireless charging in with their latest models, this product is really ahead of its time, but you cannot leave it in the past. Due to this, many companies are embracing the change to wireless charging. Although they have not yet made the change to buy those phones they are preparing for the future and are buying in their stock of Wireless Charger Hubs.

They are a great product to giveaway because they are not only practical but they don’t take up too much space on a desk and when being stored. You cannot be left behind when wireless charging becomes a big thing, and remember that with technology you need to be working 5 years in advance.

The 5 most important things to consider when buying promotional products

 

Budget:

The amount of money you’re willing to spend on your promotional products is pretty much the starting point for your promotional products journey. It allows you to plan the overall scope of your campaign. Covering product quality, quantity and purpose, it encompasses it as a broad stroke in this regard. Product quality is a hugely integral part of buying promotional products. With the product being reflective of your company, this is relevant in regards to quality. If the quality of a promotional product is poor, with your company logo emblazoned on it, this would paint your company in a negative light, leaving a bad taste in the consumer’s mouth.

Audience:

The Snowdon Drawstring Bag, in Orange

Knowing your audience a huge contributing factor when choosing a promotional product. The product itself has to resonate with your audience on a direct level, be applicable to them directly in their life. The audience is a hugely subjective and diverse entity to cover. The audience can depend on business size, what your business can offer and how you sell your products. An easy to digest example of this would be a Gym, giving away drawstring bags. It is quite universal and practical in nature and will be of a great amount of use to your audience, of individuals that go to the gym.

Purpose and Function:

How your product affects your customer’s lives can make a huge impact on the customer decision. Often a good promotional product offers the user some sort of practical usage, this can be as simple as a bottle opener or a keyring, items that are often used in day to day life. Utilising a product that the user may use in daily life, with your company logo, will often make your customers resonate with the product on a more intimate level, by surrounding them with products that they can associate to your business. This benefits your business as it increases the likelihood of a customer choosing your business for that very reason.

Effectiveness:

The Soft Feel Notebook

The overall effectiveness of a promotional product is widely subjective. It ventures into several aspects I have covered. The effectiveness of a promotional product can depend on what product is given at what event, or in what context. So take for example the event itself is an apprenticeship fair, taking into account your audience which would be of student age. Picking a product that would suit their immediate needs, a pen or notepad. This ideally would resonate with them, firstly with the product being free, as well as it satisfying a need of the customer. The effectiveness will be reflected in the amount of product you have left over from the event, to determine the overall success of the campaign.

Product:

When it comes to actually selecting your end product, it’s great to consider all of these factors, in order to make a truly informed decision. There are a few ways to go about this. One would be to go for the overall most popular products, so this could be a Cambridge Mug or Curvy Pen. These two silhouettes are the most popular and universal in their respective ranges. Being easily marketed to a wider audience due to the practicality of both. Another great way of choosing promotional products is through the influence of trends. Two examples spring to mind in regards to this, one being the tote bag, the other the fidget spinner. The tote bag boomed in popularity for a couple of reasons, namely the influx of environmentally friendly products, in this instance it stems from the new legislation, charging 5 pence for a plastic bag. This triggered a need for longer lasting bags, thus the huge boost in popularity. In regards to fidget spinners, they peaked as a promotional product in 2017, resonating in youth and adult culture respectively. Widely renowned as a novelty product, its success is not to be disregarded completely, but its popularity has definitely subsided.

Speaking conclusively, it is hugely important to consider all of these aspects when purchasing Promotional Products as a whole. As it allows you to select the right product for your specific campaign.
