Why Focus on The Quality of Promotional Merchandise?

Many business owners are hesitant to spend excessive amounts of money on promotional merchandise and cut corners. Unfortunately, sometimes cutting corners can also mean compromising on the quality of the product. At Brand Republic, we strongly believe that you should focus on the quality of the products because:

  1. The promotional merchandise doesn’t have to be expensive

This is one of the most common misconceptions customers have because they believe people have to compromise on quality in order to keep their marketing budget comfortable. But it’s possible to get affordable promotional merchandise, just find the right vendor with a wide range of products across different price points.

  1. Quality has an impact on reputation

All promotional merchandise must be of good quality if you want to create a good impression on your customers. If the quality of the merchandise is bad, the customers will assume you don’t care enough about them or quality in general and that will have a negative impact on the reputation of the company.

  1. Useful merchandise has a bigger impact

Good quality useful merchandise creates a positive impression on the customer. For example, a pen that breaks down after two uses will be discarded and forgotten but a pen that lasts for several months and performs reliably will be memorable. Investing in durable and good-quality products will provide a much greater ROI than low-quality and cheap promotional merchandise. Long term use will also ensure that your logo and company name gets good visibility.

Lanyards Great For Concert Events

You may have heard it said that a lanyard is a boring item meant just for office workers and students. But no matter what you have heard nothing could be further from the truth. A lanyard is not just a versatile item that can be utilised across all industries but it can be used at any event. Apart from being practical for daily uses, they are also great for concerts and events. One such event that they are great for is concerts. It you have attended a concert of any sort whether a rock concert or pop concert or gone to see your favourite band at your local concert hall then you most certainly would have seen someone wearing a lanyards.

I have been to numerous concerts myself when I was younger and I have seen quite a few. I attended heaps of blues concert in the past and I saw quite a few. They are aways attended my staff who could not do without a lanyard nor could they function without one. With large events such as rock concert it is important for attendees to be able to identify staff as those events. Any concert that you attend you will invariably see all sorts of support staff looking after the every needs of the concert goers. There are of course the ushers. How would anyone be able to identify the ushers without their lanyards and polo shirts with “staff” emblazed across them. Also how could trust their credentials without their ID attached to their lanyard.

People also inevitable get sick at these rock concerts so finding first aid staff needs to be easy and they need to be visible to others at the event. They too would require the staff to have identification would would necessitate a lanyard and an ID card attached.

So next time you go to a rock concert or a pop concert with Madonna, Tailor Swift or the Rolling Stones then will definitely see staff are wearing and you will see that a printed lanyard and you will realise that they are not boring after all.
