Custom Bags for Promotional Giveaways

You’ve finally decided you want to create a custom bag for your upcoming promotion. And why not? A custom bag makes a great investment! Not only are they economical and affordable, but they garner much more attention than a small one-use item that only the recipient will see.

When you give away a great tote bag imprinted with your custom logo or message, you’re basically passing out portable little walking billboards! And since they are reusable, people will use them over and over again, giving you a lot of exposure from just one product.

So now that you have decided what you want, you need to decide what type of bag is right for your brand. Let’s start with the basics.

 

Where to Begin

First, think about your company and the event you will be promoting. You want something that will remind your current customers of how wonderful you and your products are while creating something to attract new customers.

What image do you want to represent? Consider your business and the kind of customers you want to appeal to. There are many styles to choose from, ranging from mini bags to coolers, to large totes. With so many colors and styles, you are sure to find the perfect tote bag to represent your company, as well as match or enhance your color scheme.

So, let’s take a look at the different kinds of custom bags available.

 

Types of Custom Bags

Depending on the brand or event you are promoting, there are several types of bags you can choose from that will project the right image you want to promote.

 

Tote Bags

Tote bags are sturdy and made to last, and are an excellent choice for bookstores, grocery stores, and other types of shops that may sell heavier items.

Looking for something a bit more eco-friendly? Browse through our Cotton Tote Bags. We have a few nice-sized natural cotton grocery totes that project an organic image or feel, perfect for fresh markets.

Drawstring Sport Packs

Promoting a sporting team or event? Look no further than our Drawstring Sport Packs! These handy little bags are ideal for supporting or raising money for your local sports team or school, and make wonderful fundraisers. Sell them at concession stands during sporting events, or as a fundraiser for the football team, band, or any other sport or school-related program to raise money and support student activities.

 

Paper and Plastic Bags

Heading to a tradeshow? Custom plastic and paper bags are a must for any tradeshow! Not only are they a great way to hand out your promotional materials, but they will be seen all through the event prompting others to visit your booth or table!

 

Dry Bags

Dry bags are a great way to promote beach parties, boating excursions, corporate picnics, and more! They are a great way to protect cell phones, watches, clothing, and other items you don’t want to get wet while out having a good time. And they float! If it falls off a boat, or you want to pull it behind you while in the water, the bag will stay on top of the water for easy access to your belongings.

Coolers or Lunch Bags

From single lunch bags for schools to larger coolers that can accommodate up to 24 canned drinks, cooler bags are another profitable way to support a school, sports team, or another event. There is a wide selection of cooler bags to fit every need. And just imagine the exposure your brand can get during tailgating season!

 

Gym and Duffel Bags

Custom gym and duffel bags are another great way to promote a sports team or sporting venue, as well as work-out facilities and gyms. You can sell them in your gym’s shop so customers use them to carry their gear around, giving you exposure everywhere they go.

Spring is Here – Refresh your Promotional Products

A change of seasons always signals a time for renewal! As the saying goes – out with the old, and in with the new! The term “Spring Cleaning” brings to mind cleaning out closets, changing heating and air conditioning filters, refreshing batteries in smoke alarms, and buying new clothes. It’s also a great time to refresh your marketing efforts to attract new business with new promotional products.

Spring means warmer weather and more outdoor events. School will be ending soon, and people will start making plans to head to the beach and other vacation destinations with friends and family.

Whether you are thinking of sponsoring an outdoor event, booking a tradeshow, or ramping up your advertising efforts to promote your brand, it’s the ideal time to add new products to your collection of gifts for events and client gits.

Sunglasses, sunscreen, drinkware, tote bags, and umbrellas make wonderful promotional items for outdoor events!

Take Your Brand on a Summer Vacation

The last couple of years have been hard on us all. But now the winter blues are starting to lift. Many of us are starting to think about that well-deserved summer vacation. A beach holiday in the summer sun perhaps? Maybe a beautiful apartment with a lovely swimming pool. Or a wonderful city break to that destination you have been dreaming about for the last few years. We all deserve it, don’t we?

With restrictions starting to lift around the planet, those summer vacations are back on and it may just be a record-breaking year for the tourism industry! Well, let’s hope so, especially after the last couple of years!

Does Your Brand Need a Vacation?

Have you ever considered sending your brand on a summer holiday? Now before you question if I have already started on the summer cocktails, let me explain what I mean.

When we go on holiday there are a few items we regularly need! Sunglasses comes to mind, a bag to carry my kit to the hotel gym or down to the pool or beach, and even a bottle of sunscreen. Imagine if these items were promotional products that highlighted your brand!

In a previous article, we highlighted the value of using promotional products for great brand awareness. For someone to keep and use a promotional product it needs to fit two main criteria. It is something they will regularly use in their daily life, and it has to be of high quality. Here at Promotional Webstores, we offer a great range of quality sunglasses, sunscreen, and bags that can be customized to your brand. All at competitive prices! Hand these out to your clients, let them use them not only in their daily lives but also when they go on vacation. Then suddenly you have international exposure!

Now you might be sitting there reading this, thinking my brand does not really need international exposure. So, this really does not apply to me. Before you click away let me convince you that this is might not be the case!

Social Media is a Powerful Advertising Tool

With the boom of picture-based and video social media, your products have the potential to be viewed by millions of people worldwide along with the whole of the US. Just one great photo or video where your branded product is in full view and before you know it you may just become a viral sensation!

Just think how many pictures and videos will be posted and viewed this summer, of people enjoying their summer vacations with the most wonderful views, on the most beautiful beaches, at a great romantic restaurant, or at that tropical swimming pool. Each picture potentially has your branded sunglasses, sunscreen, or bag in that photo. Viewed by all their followers who suddenly start thinking…. I wonder who that company is?

Still not convinced?

Think back to your last holiday. We look at everything, taking it all in. We see everyone. Intrigued by their appearance, what they are wearing and carrying. Then we take pictures and videos and post them on social media for the world to see!

I bet you can picture someone you saw on your travels with a certain bag or product, and you remember the name of that company that was printed on it. Maybe you even googled them. Maybe you ended up being one of their customers…

Boost your Brand with Custom Bags

Having your brand name and marketing message seen all over town is a goal many business owners strive to achieve. The more you put your brand in the eyes of potential customers, the quicker your business brand becomes a household name in your industry. While some people solely rely on the digital space to advertise their brands, you can go far beyond that to leverage the power of promotional products.

As a business owner, it’s important to understand that the world’s digital market economy is characterized by congested and aggressive advertising. As a result, you must look for smarter ways to build brand awareness outside the digital space. Promotional products are items you can personalize to drive your brand marketing campaign locally or nationally. Business owners who understand the power of traditional advertising include promotional items in their marketing efforts.

Regardless of the type of business, custom tote bags, lunch bags, grocery, messenger, business, gym, and duffel bags can be used for effective physical brand promotion. Not only do they make great customer gifts, but they provide the added value of repeated use and brand exposure. Unlike a disposable plastic bag, tote bags are reusable; and recipients will use them over and over again, giving you extended brand exposure. The longer they use these bags with your promotional message imprinted on them, the higher the exposure your brand gets.

Why Use Custom Bags as a Marketing Strategy?

Imagine what it will look like when people are seen in shopping malls, offices, streets, and event arenas with your personalized bags. Of course, this will go a long way to improving your brand visibility. But this isn’t the only reason you need custom bags for your business marketing.

Here are some other reasons why more businesses are paying attention to the use of reusable bags for their brand marketing:

Promotional products are cost-effective

The cost of advertising your business using custom bags is less when compared to the use of radio, television commercials, or billboard advertising. As such, even small business owners can depend on it. And with the added value of repeat exposure over longer periods of time, you get more for your advertising dollar!

Custom bags come in different types, styles, and sizes, making it easier for you to pick one that fits your budget. At The Custom Bag Store, you can see the different designs, materials, and prices that fit your advertising budget.

Nothing beats the reusability of custom bags. People have the habit of reusing custom bags multiple times and for different purposes. You can easily benefit from this habit by customizing a bag with your business logo, promotional message, and contact details. Not only will the recipient be reminded of your business, but you can potentially gain new customers from the exposure you get when it is used around town.

There is no doubt about the importance of using promotional custom bags for your brand awareness. Whether you are using them to promote your business at a tradeshow, or a customer and employee gifts, you stand a higher chance of benefiting from this marketing with a unique bag for your business. Get started today, by creating walking billboards through customers that will provide you years of return exposure!
