Questions to ask:
1. Have you been using the same products for years and year? There are a lot of new innovations in giveaway ideas. Smart phone accessories are some of the most popular items. One blog study shows that a single mobile power bank will generate over 1000 impressions (times your logo is seen) in the course of its lifetime. Talk about money in the BANK!
2. Is your team fired up about the promotional products they are using to market the company? If your employees aren't using the products themselves, chances are they aren't too excited about distributing them - maybe they are even embarrassed to give them out.
3. New logo? This is a definite indicator that you need to change your promotional products. Don't water down your exciting new logo design and colors by using promotional products with the old logo on them. In fact, new promotional products are a great way to advertise your refreshed company design and inject some new energy and enthusiasm with your top clients as well as helping you capture new ones.
4. What's the strategy? Promotional products should directly relate to your brand. It should not only be something the recipient should use - it should be something to surprise and delight your intended audience. The product should be related to your industry AND the event you are planning to use them - such as a logo bandanna for a winery pouring at the US National Rodeo. Or, if you are sponsoring a surfing event, beach towels or surf wax are perfect products as they reflect the tone of the event. Do you have a booth at an outdoor venue this summer - an inexpensive paper fan can make you the most popular booth of the day.
