The Products

Tangible branded products are typically kept for over a year.  This means that not only is user of the product reminded of your brand, but they are reminded of the feeling they had when  the branded merchandise was recieved. As a result, the consumer is likely to purchase from you again. Studies show that about  80% of people who received promotional items said they are likely to do business with the company again. 

 

Introduce new Product or Service

Using promotional giveaways is an effective marketing approach used to market new products or services. Giving free samples to your potential customers lets them try out the product without commitment. Additionally, it helps increase the awareness of your company.  Branded promotional products can be used for direct marketing in addtion to be distributed at trade shows, conferences, and othe events.
