Aspects to consider While Choosing Promotional Merchandise

Every company needs promotional merchandise at some time or the other. It could be for an event, a business fair, a conference or for internal distribution too. Regardless of who the recipients of these products are you would want to ensure that they are good quality, well printed and well-presented items. This is why it makes sense to choose them with care and attention to detail. Here are some aspects you should take into account while choosing promotional items:

  • Functionality– This is probably one of the first things you should take into account while deciding which product to choose. The product should have a purpose; if you get something that only has decorative/cosmetic value, it’s less likely to make an impact. Consider giving something that can be used daily or frequently such as a mouse pad, pen, pen drive, mobile charger etc. You can also consider getting products that aren’t used very frequently such as gym bags or umbrellas; these are indispensible at certain times.
  • Appearance– When you start researching the market for promotional merchandise, you will find there are literally thousands of them to choose from. This is why you need to ensure the product is functional and looks good too. When you pay attention to the latter aspect, you make a good impression and it adds to the reputation of your company. At times, the only thing that’s required is a creative eye to choose useful and fun products. For instance, you can add a very catchy/witty phrase to a very simple product, in attractive colours; and that can make a very unique promotional item.
  • Quality– It’s not difficult to find cheap products; but when you focus only on low pricing that can also sometimes mean you compromise on quality. This is something you should avoid at all costs. It’s best to settle for good quality products that also have good-quality printing. When you purchase promotional merchandise from a credible company like Brand Republic, you are assured of getting consistently high-quality products at competitive rates.

As long as you keep these 3 basic factors in view while selecting promotional items, you will find that you are able to make a very positive impact. These products go a long way in reinforcing your brand image and help keep your company name at the fore of the recipients’ minds. And after all, isn’t that what promotional products are meant to do?

Different Categories of Promotional Products

When companies are deciding which promotional products they want; they take factors such as quality, aesthetics, functionality and price into account. While all of these are very important aspects, there is one more aspect that many people forget to take into account- the method of distribution of these promotional products.

We at Brand Republic feel that this is something which should be taken into consideration and have created some categories of products, based on how they are going to be distributed. Hopefully, this small guide should help you make a more well-informed choice in this respect:

  1. Counter Tops

It’s common for promotional products to be placed on top of counters; typically, this distribution method is highly dependent on user honesty as these items could be self-service ones. They may be entirely free or there could be very small amount that customers have to pay to purchase them. For example organisers of charity events place things like badges and pens at their venue.

When you are considering purchasing promotional products for events like these, it’s best to opt for low cost items. It’s also a good idea to choose colourful and attractive, pocket-sized products. These are far easier to distribute; and when you are selling a cheaper, portable product, it automatically makes the purchase decision easier for the visitors.

  1. Staff gifts

In these types of promotional products, it’s vital that you prioritise the quality aspect. These are very different from fundraising merchandise; the products you choose for your employees should be high-quality and functional. Spend some time thinking about which products your staff members will use more frequently. With this in view, you can consider ordering customised office stationery and related products such as staple removers, notepads, mouse pads, clips etc. You can also consider products such as umbrellas, satchels, backpacks etc.

  1. Tradeshow Handouts

Conferences and tradeshows see a lot of activity and every company tries their level best to attract more traffic to their stand. It can be quite challenging to stand out from the crowd in this kind of setting; however, it’s not impossible. You would have to make some extra effort to choose attractive products that are also printed in vivid colours. Look for uniquely-shaped, vibrant coloured promotional products or something funky.

  1. Corporate Gifts (posted or hand-delivered)

This is one more category promotional products that have to be chosen with care. In some instances, your staff members may be handing these out to customers that have just signed a contract with you. At times, you may post out a gift to an existing customer that hasn’t done business with you for a while now. Regardless of the intent, it’s vital to give products that are perceived to be high in quality.

Are Promotional Products Worth It?

Promotional products are an excellent way to increase your visibility in the market. Unlike sophisticated digital marketing techniques, this marketing strategy doesn’t require constant reinvestment. You can purchase and distribute these products and simply forget about them. The most durable products like coffee mugs, pens, and bags would continue to increase your visibility for several years to come. At Brand Republic, we always encourage our clients to include promotional products in their marketing strategy.
