A promotional product is any product you gift to someone, to promote your business, organization, or service. Each product is personalized, containing the brand name, logo, contact information, website address, or anything else that highlights your brand! Gifting these personalized products is a great marketing tool and can really help to boost your brand awareness!
The Benefits of Promotional Products
Companies already use promotional products to increase their brand awareness. Whether it’s handing out customized products when they visit the office in an attempt to sell you their product, or at trade shows trying to increase their customer base. But why do they do this? Let us look at an example.
Imagine as part of your promotional strategy, you give a potential client a personalized product they can use daily that promotes your brand. Marketing research has shown that people in the US are likely to keep a promotional product for on average 12 months. That person will be continually exposed to your brand for 365 days! Now let us imagine that just 2 different friends or work colleagues see that product each day over that same period. Your brand awareness has now reached over 700 people within a year.
Now imagine you gift 100 products. Your brand exposure is now potentially over 70,000. For 1000 products it grows to over 700,000.
Now, this is a simplistic view, but you can see how by using promotional products you can achieve massive brand awareness very quickly. In practice, with the right product, that brand awareness may even be higher. Think about gifting travel mugs. How many people may see that mug daily? That lovely barista that makes you your morning coffee, the customers in the queue, the people on your commute, the staff in the office. That earlier example has suddenly gone from 700 people for one product in a year to over 7000! Just by using a type of product that people will use in their daily lives! You can see how you can expose your brand to large numbers of people with the right product!
At What Cost?

What Types of Products Should You Use for Promotion?
To achieve maximum exposure, you want a promotional product that can be used in someone’s everyday life. Market research has shown that the two main reasons people keep promotional products for a long time are the quality and usefulness of that product. So, think about what you use every day either at work or on the go. Pens in the office, coffee mugs (all the time!), bags on the go!
