It these times of shrinking budgets and uncertain economic times companies have become more mindful of where they put their promotional dollars.Many products have come and gone in the world of promotional products but one product has endured and that is the Promotional USB. Promotional USBs have been the mainstay of the promotional products industry for well over 15yrs. What started off as an expensive and exclusive product has morphed into the most popular promotional item in the history of corporate gifts.
The promotional USB has left a mark like no other. It is not certain if there will ever be a product to come along and replace it. Many have tried, like the promotional power bank, but none have even come close. Custom USB Sticks are by far the most important promotional product of the 21st Century. But custom USB sticks are far from being history. They remain as dominant as ever.
Dominates Promotional Products
So when you have a product that has been so dominant as the humble promotional USB why would you look any further. Sure there are other items that you should have in you promotional campaign but throwing in a custom USB stick is a no brainer. Not only are they really cheap but they still carry the cache that they have had all these years. Custom USB stick were and still are the ant’s pants so to say.
Just like the lanyard they easily fit into any promotion. Indeed they are the ideal pair for the custom printed lanyard. They work great together because both can be printed and you can attach a lanyard to a promotional USB. You can even colour match both the items for added impact. So here you have to great items which are interrelated and so inexpensive. Another reason why they should not be left out of any marketing campaign.
That is not to say that there are not other great promotional items. There are literally thousands of promotional products out there. They are not merely promotional products but fantastic promotional items. All one needs to do is put a little thought into what the customer would like to receive and the decision is quite simple. It is remarkable that there is such a large choice of products to enhance a marketing promotional campaign
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.
These days it is becoming more and more difficult to manage ever shrinking budgets in the work place. This as true for marketing departments as it is with other corporate departments.
