If you offer a technical service and would like to increase your market share maybe it’s time to re-think your marketing strategy. You can drop off business cards and edible goods all day long, and although everyone will be happy with your treats the memory of your firm may disappear when the last bite is gobbled up and the business card is stuffed in a drawer.
Promotional gifts that are useful and reflective of your service are a relatively low cost road to a high impact marketing strategy. Here are the top three promotional products that can best represent your technical services-
Promotional Mouse Mats – If you service computers and their networks there is a very likely chance you will be dealing with people who use computers- a lot. A promotional mousemat is relatively inexpensive, has a very large area for printing your information and art/images of your choice and are very easy to tote around in large quantities.
Mousemats are replaced all the time due to wear and dirtiness, and are sure to be a welcome promotional gift that will remind its user of your services everytime they use their computer.
Promotional USB Flash Drives – New to the promotional products scene, promotional USB flash sticks let your customers know that you are in tune with what people who use computers can really use.
The promotional USB flash drive is available in a wide array of shapes, styles, materials and colors. Your name and contact information is imprinted on the outside while on the inside there is a complete electronic presentation of your choosing, pre-loaded at the manufacturing stage. Your name will come to mind everytime this highly useful tool is used.
Promotional Stress Toys – While not being particularly high tech, what makes stressballs a great promotional gift for the tech industry is the fact that they can be made to resemble something that is high tech- a stress toy in the shape of a CTR monitor and keyboard, for example.
If you specialise in maintenance and virus removal, a stressball made to resemble a computer bug would be an excellent choice. Besides being squeezed, promotional stress toys can also be thrown at the monitor in a moment of anger and frustration without causing damage while they wait for you to show up and fix the problem.
Promotional products have the ability to get you noticed. Let your peers hand out the business cards and plastic pens while you give your customers something that is far more memorable and useful.
The best way to get started is by contacting an online promotional product supplier, who can evaluate what it is you do and help make more crystalline decisions about what kind of promotional product and design would work best for you.
