Wed, Oct 10, 2012


When you’re running your own business or company, your marketing budget is one of the most important costs associated with not only the operation, but also the continued success of your enterprise. Depending on what business you’re in, there are countless ways to reach your clientele, both current and potential. Whether you’re using signs and banners, posting to various blogs and social media platforms, or handing out specialized promotional items, there are a ton of ways to expand your company’s reach and influence so that you’re reaching the most possible people and spreading the news about your company as far as is humanly possible. The way you use your promotional products is entirely up to you, but there are some pretty easy strategies and ideas that can help you reach your maximum effectiveness, based on your company and its specific goals. We’ll talk about some of the best ways you can be using promotional products to spread the word about your company.

Everybody needs supplies, no matter what it is they’re doing. Even as the world (business-oriented and otherwise) moves towards more and more electronic (read: “paperless”) ways of doing things, it’s still true that we need supplies and tool to help us get our work done on a regular basis. If your business or company is any kind of vendor that supplies people or companies with items that allow them to serve their purpose, then you’ve got an especially pronounced edge when it comes to promotional products. All you need are examples of the products that you offer, emblazoned with your company’s logo and/or information. This way, any time a customer uses one of your items, they’ll remember you, your company, and the fantastic experience they had buying the things they need. Furthermore, this allows for businesses to spread the word about you — any time a friend, colleague, or business associate uses a pen, mousepad, or coffee mug with your company’s name on it, your original client gets the chance to explain how he or she got that promotional item, thereby repping your brand in the process.

Lifestyle items are a great way to use promotional products for marketing your business, as well. If your company has a strong business to consumer (B2C) marketing component, then you can order promotional items with your company’s logo and/or information on them to hand out. This way, when your customers go to use those items they’ll think of your company every time, until your brand is ingrained in their minds and associated with their favorite activities. Whether you offer a custom sticker or a personalized Frisbee, there are a ton of ways to reach your customers in the ways that matter to them most. By positioning your company and its brand in the parts of your customers lives that are the most meaningful you’ll be able to make sure you’re always on the forefront of consumers’ thoughts.
