The best promotional gifts are those that serve a purpose. Gimmicky gifts are fun to give away but their advertising life is limited. Much better for promoting your business are products that your customers use weekly or even daily. As you will see from this article, these gifts are inexpensive and get results.
Everyone needs a pencil in their desk drawer. They are great for jotting down ideas, sketching and they are erasable. Give your customers a handful of wooden pencils and they will keep them and use them. They will also know where to find your contact details when they need them.
Even if you don’e had out the popular wooden pencils, your customers will no doubt be needing a pencil sharpener from time to time. Many pencils sharpeners offer large print areas and can be printed in full colour.
Promotional rulers are also very popular. Everyone needs a ruler. Whether you choose a plastic version or heavier wooden ruler your customers will love you for it. Rulers offer a large print area for your logo and details.
You can never have to many sticky notes. Generic sticky notes are very good quality. 3M Post-it notes are still the best but they are also more expensive.
Pen and Pencil Holders
I love desktop gifts. Gifts that sit on the desktop promoting your brand daily are great. Print your logo nice and large on them and watch your sales increase.
Give someone a good quality wirobound note pad and they will use it . Print the cover with your logo and details. Some can even be printed in full colour with amazing results.
Plastic Printed Paper Clips
No – I an not talking about normal paper clips here. Have you ever seen the rectangular clips with a nice flat surface for printing? The most known is the giant clip that is perfect for clipping together multi-sheet documents.
My favourites are the small clips – not much larger than normal paper clips These can sit happily in your customers desk ready to use whenever needed. Think about that. Give your clients 200 small paper clips printed with your logo and details and your information will always be within easy reach.
It is important to consider how well useful promotional gifts work to promote a business. These are the items we cannot work without and they are even better when they are given to us as gifts.
So what are you waiting for? Give your customers one or all of these low cost gifts and get your business promoted all over their work space!
