In my opinion, promotional products are being offered to create brand awareness to your intended target market. But how could you make it more effective? Read on to find out exactly how.
The first stage of planning is to identify your goals and objectives. You have to distinguish whether your marketing campaign would be to create brand awareness, or to get more new customers or to retain your loyal customers by giving them rewards and loyalty gestures. You also have to outline the means in which you are going to measure results.
After identifying the type of marketing campaign needed, the right strategy has to be designed. The proper time frame should be included in the strategic plan since planning ahead can save you time and money. Be sure to give 2-4 weeks for the promotional items you are ordering to be delivered right at your doorstep. So if your promotional items have to be available today, ordering it 4 weeks prior will ensure that the items will be delivered in time. If you cram your orders at the last minute, say a week before you will need to distribute the items, then not only will you have limited choices of items to order, creating custom request is also out of the equation.
Be interactive with your target market
To make the promotional items more memorable to your audience, they must have some input on the type of items to be given away. If the target audience is a conference, then attendees will normally ask for a free conference bag with paper and pen on it so they could take some notes. Acquiescing to their request not only makes your promotional gifts memorable, it will also give an “out of the box” experience for them.
Choose promotional items that are visible
For promotional items to be effective, it must not be an item that is supposed to be stored in a closet. Otherwise it beats the purpose of advertising. Put your brand logo on giveaway items that people normally see, like compendiums, shoulder bags, drink wares, T- shirt, lanyards, water bottles, stubby holders, pens, USB flash drives, caps, piggy banks, thermal mugs, tote bags, lighters and other corporate items. Be creative with your logo and brand name since they have to be eye-catching when they are printed on the promotional items so that people will notice.
Get ideas from other people
Sometimes even your brightest ideas will not be able to hit your target goal when it comes to effective advertising campaign using promotional products. When this is the case, I would highly recommend getting tips and suggestions from people who were already in the business for a number of years already. Their experience will tremendously help you in choosing the right giveaway items to distribute depending on the event and the target audience you wish to reach. They can also provide the best design for your branding logo as they already know which design will catch people’s attention.
