Figuring Out Pens

How to Pick Promotional Products

When it comes to building brand awareness, there’s no denying that you focus must be in online marketing, but you likewise must acknowledge the fact that it isn’t the only thing you need to be doing. It’s no secret that many people, probably including you are no longer sold on the idea that traditional print marketing still matters, but truth to be told, there are methods and strategies that still are very much effective. This is particularly true with respect to creating and establishing brand awareness. Accordingly, one of those “old” yet effective way to marketing your brand is by using promotional products or items.

The use of promotional products still matters and remains to be effective for the simple reason that it builds a lasting positive impression to those who are offered it. If you’re not really sure what a promotional item or product is, think about things you see everyday like printed pens, promotional and even custom-printed water bottles. Now you probably have a clear idea.

And as soon as you make the decision to invest in promotional products, you might easily get overwhelmed by the wide range of options. So, it’s really important to know how to pick the right ones, and to do this, you must know what things to factor in.

1 – Type of Recipient

Whatever the type of marketing strategy you’re using, the objective remains the same: pleasing and impressing your target audience. But before you can do that, you have to have a full understand who your recipient is. The same can be said when it comes to utilizing promotional products. Before you buy or commission the creation of promotional items for your brand, you need to figure out who will receive it and if the choice you made will in fact convince them to buy or at least take notice of your brand.

2 – Type of Event

The venue over which you plan on promoting your brand also matters. For instance, if you’re participating in a trade show or convention, it’s smart to use a promotional product that people will appreciate because it is useful for the kind of event they’re in, say like bags and totes.

3 – Quality

Although you will want to produce your promotional products numbering from several hundreds to the thousands, it doesn’t mean you just don’t care about the quality, thinking that you actually can save if you choose cheaply made ones. Just look at it this way: if you recipients receive the item and see that it’s made of cheap material or has poor quality, what would they think of your brand after?

So, the thing with choosing a promotional product to be used for creating brand awareness is that if you pick the wrong one, it could backfire and you end up hurting your brand rather than helping it.
