Slide 1: Don’t Kill Your Marketing Campaign! A question that haunts every business is “What if the campaign doesn’t work?....did we get the promotional product right? Or are my precious advertising dollars lining bins?” Determining the right promotional product can either make or break your campaign, but rest easy because it’s not as hard as splitting the Red Sea either! Here are a few criteria to take into consideration when choosing your promotional item: Who your target audience is—the demographics-- Often a business will make the dire mistake of choosing a business giveaway it feels is the right one. That is a tragedy waiting to happen! Rather than thinking from your own perspectives, you must think from your customers’ perspective. Your customers are your greatest asset. They are the ones whose sensibility you want to appeal to in order to have them coming back to you time and again. So you must understand your audience, their socio-cultural practices, their mindset, and their habits in order to choose a promotional item that they will appreciate. Is the item going to be useful to them?-- Once you know who will receive the personalized promotional item, you need to think about how useful the item going to be to them. This perhaps is the most salient consideration of all.
Slide 2: You obviously do not want to give something that will go in trash cans! Statistics show that promotional items that are most useful are kept longer, used much more, and therefore create that many more impressions—not just on the recipient of the item, but with others who are in the vicinity too. Is the item suited to your business interest and product image? Appropriateness of the giveaway to your business makes a significant impact on your promotion. For a company dealing in computer software to give away lip balms to their customers or prospects would be ridiculous! However, if the same company was to give out promotional USB flash drives it becomes an appropriate marketing tool. Will your logo/slogan/message sit well on the promotional product—does it provide adequate printing space? Will it be clearly visible? Give your company logo or your slogan fair consideration. The printing space provided by a pen is much smaller than its larger counterparts—bags and t-shirts, which also afford better visibility and many more impressions for every advertising dollar spent. For this reason the latter are extremely popular promotional gifts. Choose wisely! Does the promotional item look good? Statistics show that relatively more attractive looking corporate giveaways are retained by their recipients rather than being trashed. If a product is retained, the greater the chances of it being seen by more and more people, the greater the exposure your brand logo gets! Price and timely shipment considerations
Slide 3: While ordering your promotional items along with the budget and price of the products do check whether the shipment would reach you in time for the event. Delays in this would be suicidal to a promotion!
