Most advertising is based on repetition. No one listens to a single advertisement on TV, radio or even in print like newspapers and magazines. Business advertising is most effective when it is repeated and the same message is delivered to the target audience until it becomes subliminal. Sex sells. Humor sells. Drama sells. Endorsements sell. That is why almost all ads are created in one of those four formats. The message is usually that a product is better, will make you rich, thin or save you money. Promotional products do it more efficiently by providing your customers with something that they want and will use while constantly delivering your message.
Regardless of the size of your business, there is a promotional product that is just right for your message at an affordable price. Promotional products are a $19 billion dollar industry made up of thousands of economical items.
Every time your business gives away a pen, highlighter, USB flash drive, sports bottle, drinkware, tote bag, reusable sack, back pack or similar product it will be actively used; not just once, but over and over again. Each time it is used, your message is delivered right where you want it. This is known as cost per impression – how many times your logo or message will be seen for the same investment dollar. Promotional products are far and away the undefeated sales champion by this measurement. For a low, factory direct price, you can have your logo or message imprinted, engraved or silk screened on the product of your choice. That product will generate awareness of your business, build customer loyalty and create new sales. In today’s economy, it’s the one true business building method that everyone can afford.
Whether you are a new business trying to reach and build a customer base, or an established company introducing a new line or product, connect with your customers or just want to entice new sales, promotional products are the best media. Flyers, direct mail, newspapers and other print are hit and miss tools. Usually, they wind up in the garbage without making their point. Email blasts wind up in the spam bucket. Promotional products are active, usable carriers which are appreciated, not discarded as soon as possible.
Promotional products are an investment in your business and in your future. Whether it be promotional drinkware, custom USB drives, or imprinted tote bags, these items have been proven to be the most cost-effective way to get your message out to the masses. The right promotional product couple with the right target market can be a huge driver to sales. Marketing is all about keeping your company at the top of the consumer’s mind, which promotional products do each and every time they are used.
