The Top 8 Promotional Items To Help Better Your Business

How do you promote your business?

TV commercials? Social media advertising? Email marketing? Your website?

While all of these marketing strategies are great and should be considered in your strategic marketing plan, promotional items have the highest advertising recall over them all!

That’s right!

Forty-five percent of people use a promotional item daily, and 58 percent of them keep the best promotional items for one to four years.

Just think about it…

What do you do when you sit at your office desk waiting for your next important call to come through?

More than likely, you fidget with items in your possession. 

You jot down a list of things you need to complete on a small notepad and pen with a brand logo slapped on it. 

A few hours later, you may find yourself on that brand’s website simply strolling, unaware that you are subconsciously investing your time in their brand.

In fact, 95 percent of our purchase decision-making takes place in the subconscious mind.

Now, don’t be alarmed. 

Instead, join the crew.

1. Pens 

Whether you are writing a to-do list or filling out a quick form, pens are always and will always be a necessity. Although we live in a digital era,  Americans use over 9 billion tons of paper in a year.

And where there is a pen, paper isn’t far behind.

In fact, they should be side by side which leads to our next promotional item…

2. Mini Notepads

As stated above, paper is used year-round and can be helpful in any case scenario.

By using a mini notepad as a promotional item to sell, not only will it make your current and future customers happy, but it will encourage them to find out more about your business when they see your brand logo on the top of each page.

3. Keychains

Keychains are another fantastic item to use to promote your brand. Although you could purchase a dozen of rubber keychains and add your brand logo to them, keychains are very vertical, so they can pretty much be whatever you want them to be. 

So make them unique by providing your customers and future customers a piece of what your business offers. This leads to the fourth promotional item…

4. Flash drives

If your company promotes electronic gizmos and gadgets, a flash drive will serve your business best. 

With a flash drive, your customers could save their digital files and print them out wherever they go.  

5. T-Shirts 

Promote your brand with a stylish t-shirt and share as much or as little detail about your business as you would like.

6. Mugs and Water Bottles

Who doesn’t love a warm beverage in the morning or a cold bottle of water on a hot sunny day?

Customized mugs and water bottles are the perfect promotional items given to show your customers you care.

This unique gift will not only place a smile on your customers’ faces but will push your business sales too!

7. Tote Bags

Purses are nice, and fanny packs are too, but when promoting a brand, tote bags are the way to go!

These neat bags are great for grocery shopping, picnic outings,s and everything in between.
