5 Things Promotional Products Will Not Do

19th September 2019

Although there are many reasons why businesses invest in promotional products (and it’s not all about the money, which is something I’ll share with you another time), there are times when they simply don’t work.

Sometimes they don’t do the thing you expect them to do.

So I thought I’d clear up a few things and at the same time, help you get more from your promotional merchandise.

Three Tips to Promotional Merchandise Heaven

  1. Don’t leave it until the very last minute – You have a new product launch or event. You have so much to do such as booking the venue, sending out the invites, organising the stand or room, sorting out the food, drink, timetable, yada, yada, yada.

Oh and then there’s the promotional items, the giveaways so they’ll remember the amazing time they had with you.

Now don’t get me wrong, most promotional merchandise suppliers these days can turn orders around on a dime, but sometimes unexpected factors can come into play such as stock availability, shipping errors and the occasional issue of an act of god resulting in a delay.

Here’s a great idea.

As soon as you know an event’s coming up, get in touch with your promotional gift supplier and get him to get the ball rolling sending you ideas and samples well in advance. Aim to have everything delivered at least one week before your event.

Not only will you have a great range of products because you’re not limiting yourself to just fast turnaround items, you’ll also have a more stress free experience.

Next time I’ll share with you Tip 2. Don’t give ice to an Eskimo.

But in the meantime, how about getting your hands on our Promotional Gifts Brochure. It’s packed full of great ideas including, a technology range that’ll blow your mind and over 1,000 corporate gift ideas, just to get those creative juices flowing.

P.S. Here’s a question for you.

Did you know that promotional products that become “hot, must have items” are changing faster than ever before, and the best sellers of just a few months ago are now just run-of-the-mill (think powerbanks for example).

So check out some of the latest promotional items in our Promotional Gifts Brochure by going here now.
