Promotional alarm clocks are practical and useful gifts that your customers will appreciate and use. Most promotional clocks these days have some sort of built in alarm so there are literally hundreds of different designs to choose from. If you want to promote your corporate colours you can do so with one of the many colourful plastic clocks available. If, on the other hand, you want to go for a more traditional look, check out the range of metal clocks that look fantastic on the desktop.
Time is important to almost everyone while and work or even on holiday. I personally have an alarm clock on my desk that was given to me by a supplier over fifteen years ago. It is a permanent fixture on my desk at work making it easy for me to find the supplier’s details whenever required. His logo and contact details are engraved right across the front.
Alarm clocks are not always used for their alarms. It is, however, nice to have the option should you have the need.
Did you know that in the first two days of 2011 legions of iphone uses rolled into work late because of a problem with Apple’s alarm clock application? I only know this because I was one of those people. It does demonstrate that even if our high tech world, it is nice to have a backup.
I love gifts that my customers will value. These are the types of gifts that get used and promote the best. If you choose your clocks carefully, you could find that they promote your brand for years.
Let’s look at it in terms of cost per impression. If you were to purchase a quantity of mid-range clocks at £3.50 each you might find the initial spend quite high. But when you consider the fact that good quality clocks printed or engraved with your logo could be seen and used by your customers for years, the cost is lower than most other types of advertising.
Over time you will be paying less than a penny per impression. And you will be making an impression not only on your customer but all of their work colleagues and friends who see the clock too.
It is therefore important to look for good quality promotional alarm clocks that will last a long time and promote your brand just as long.
Most promotional clocks are now manufactured in China. Quality can vary greatly even between two clocks that look identical in catalogues. Therefore I always recommend asking for samples to ensure you are happy with the look, feel and quality of your preferred promotional clock before placing an order.
