Small business branding campaigns can be successfully executed through the use of promotional products. These tools function best when they provide demonstrable value to customers, are regularly seen by other consumers and are able to clearly share a brand name, product, image, service or logo. Giving out promotional products is a great way to help with a company’s marketing efforts, no matter who receives them.
Of course, it certainly helps to target the right group of people. In the hands of regular customers or parties that have already expressed some interest in an organization, promotional products become an even more powerful tool. They not only strengthen the bond between a business and a regular customer, but they will then go off and be shared with other consumers. One way to accomplish this is to demonstrate the usefulness of a promotional product before giving it away.
A perfect tool for this is a personalized mug. Sharing a cup of coffee, tea, cocoa or any other hot beverage during the course of a business transaction is a nice gesture. Offering the mug to customers will make them even more enthusiastic about an organization, and hopefully they’ll go on to share and display the product.
Another excellent tactic is giving promotional products away as necessary tools. Real estate agents often show houses or apartments to people who may wish to make measurements or take notes. It is easy to offer them a promotional pen or personalized notebook that will give them the ability to keep records of the house that they’ve just seen. They can then keep the tools that they’ve previously been using.
When a company needs to give data of some sort to a customer, be it digital forms, pictures or software, the perfect way to transfer it is by using a USB drive. If this comes in the form of a promotional product, it can then be given away freely to the customer. A USB logo drive is an excellent tool for raising awareness of an organization because it will be valued and used frequently by its owner.
Financial planners, lawyers and other office professionals often need to make detailed schedules of court dates, times when money is due to other parties or a host of other important occasions that can’t be forgotten. A savvy businessperson will obtain personalized calendars, mark the key dates in them for a customer or client and give them away. This not only provides a valuable service, it provides a customers with a useful tool for their business as well as anything else they wish to use it for.
