Christmas, The Perfect Time To Say Thank You With Business Gifts

business gifts

Reward your team and customers with business gifts this year.

A company’s survival is highly dependent on both new customer satisfaction and continued loyalty, it makes sense to provide clients with an unexpected token of appreciation for their business.

The success of your business relies upon both the acquisition of new customers and the retention of existing customers.

The perfect time to say thank you to your customers is at Christmas. Business gifts branded with your company logo using company promotional products, such as pens, coffee mugs, bags, apparel, calendars, key chains, or sporting products from EmbroidMe, will be ideal to say thank you to your staff and customers.

Showing customers how much they are appreciated through a personalized and useful promotional gift will not only send the message that their business is valued, but will also increase brand recall and loyalty.

LJ Research found that 76.1% of participants could recall the name of the advertiser on the promotional product that they received in the past 12 months.

In comparison only 53.5% of participants could recall the name of an advertiser they had seen in a magazine or newspaper.

Having a branded t-shirt or mug with your company logo is a constant reminder of your brand and will influence their decision the next time they are in the market for the company’s products or services.

Custom printed promotional products are also a great way to make new prospects aware of your brand name. The same LJ Research study stated that over half of participants did business with the business after receiving business gifts and reported having a more favourable impression of the business since receiving the item.

Promotional Bags Are Excellent Advertising For Your Business

Businesses in 2013 need to use cost effective marketing. Promotional products like promotional bags are very cheap, useful, practical and 24/7 advertising for your business.

PROMOTIONAL BAGS deliver the most impressions, with 1,038 impressions per month on average. ASI, 2010 Global Advertising Impressions Study

promotional productsYour business will definitely get a boost in terms of marketing. The use of custom printed bags as an advertising medium will contribute to enhancing the sale of your products. The single use plastic bag is now being superseded by multiple use bags made from non-woven polypropylene, which are not only better for the environment they will make sure that your printed design will be seen over and over again.

Even more attractive and durable are tote bags made from cotton or canvas which can be imprinted with a logo or message and will be used over and over again. A high quality product that the customer will use frequently & will be seen constantly by others and offer your business free advertising. This is a particularly effective kind of
advertising. Visibility is high and this kind of advertising gets seen by everyone, which automatically raises the profile of the company whose logo is on the bag by orders of magnitude.

promotional bagsThe Advertising Specialty Institute announced in November 2010 the finding of the 2010 Global Advertising Specialties Impressions Study that indicated Bags have the highest number of impressions in a month, over 1,000, and over one-third (36%) of those with incomes under $50,000 own bags. Because of their use in daily life to carry goods, laptop, clothing items and other things, these promotional items are popular in terms of the ongoing advertising offered through constant use.

They are also considered as perfect for business promotion simply because they have enough space on both sides to display the business details & logo. Promotional bags are available in different designs, sizes and colors to correlate back to the brand image and message that the client wishes to promote.

promotional bagsCooler bags have a lot of advantages. They have wide printing spaces that you can use to easily catch the attention of your customers. This printing space may further be expanded if you choose bigger varieties of promotional cooler bags. You may also take advantage of the different colours to match it with your business name or logo design. Make the bright colours your backdrop that will highlight your design. These bags are also flexible, and may be used by any customer, regardless of age, gender, or profession. They are really for everybody.

Enjoy these advantages when you decide to use cooler bags to promote your product. Regular backpacks and sport packs are available in a wide range of designs in different colors and materials some of which can be combined in the same bag. They have numerous pockets on the outside for stowing smaller items and a large capacity inner area. Branding on this type of bag is usually printed although some can be embroidered to create a more high-end effect. These bags are made from very durable
materials such as polyester or nylon so they will last a long time and continue to promote your brand long after the event is over.

Custom logo shopping or grocery totes bags as an advertising option are increasing in popularity worldwide. Every time the client is using the product, your company is achieving free advertising and helping the environment. As a result, you can heighten your brand much faster and on a broader scope than traditional advertising.

Pens, Mugs and a USB drive are very popular Promotional Products

usb drive

The British Promotional Merchandise Association has published a very interesting article about research proving that Promotional Products deliver a higher or equal ROI to other forms of advertising.

New statistics show conclusive link between promotional merchandise, branding and sales.

The survey concluded the following: Evidence of the link between promotional merchandise, branding and sales.

  • A promotional product influences purchases and repeat exposure to a brand having a positive effect on how business people react to that brand.
  • Over four-fifths (84 per cent) of respondents stated that a branded promotional gift increases awareness of the brand, 63 per cent of respondents said they preferred to receive a promotional gift with logo branding on and 37 per cent indicated that they prefer to receive an unbranded gift.
  • Nearly half (45 per cent) of people surveyed would most like to receive a USB drive, while 39 per cent would like a pen, 39 per cent an electrical item and 36 per cent a mug.

The reasons for these choices are clear, as when asked what types of promotional gift they found most useful 21% stated a USB drive, 11 per cent an electrical item and 10% a writing instrument.

usb drive

“Usefulness is one of the core reasons for people retaining promotional merchandise and is a key factor in it being used time and time again, providing an ongoing reminder of the brand that gave it.” Stephen Barker.

18 per cent of respondents stated that they had kept a mug for the longest period of time, 15 per cent a USB drive and 12 per cent a pen, with around one-third (33 per cent) indicating they had kept an item for between one and two years and 30 per cent between three and four years, highlighting that around 87 per cent of recipients had kept a promotional item for longer than 12 months.

The impact of promotional merchandise on the recipient is shown by the items that respondents remember receiving in the last 12 months, with 44 per cent recalling receiving a pen, 34 per cent a mug and 31 per cent a calendar, with USB drives and stationery coming in at 22 per cent and 18 per cent respectively.

Stephen Barker concludes: “The results of the survey unequivocally demonstrate the value that should be placed on promotional products as a key part of the marketing mix. Not only do promotional products make positive impressions on all those who see them, but the message is reinforced every time the product is used and contributes to the user’s needs and wellbeing.

No other form of media can give the advertiser such a close tie between the benefits to the user and the brand and message. The findings also provide information that can help marketers tailor their promotional products even more specifically in order to make their promotional spend still more effective.” Article source: bpma.co.uk and comments by Stephen Barker, BPMA board director.

Promotional Products generate up to 50% higher consumer recall rate than TV, print and online advertising!

flash drive promotional productsLatest research from PPAI’s reveals that promotional products are the hands-down winner when it comes message recall – generating a 15-50% higher consumer recall rate than TV, print and online advertising!

The first ever in-depth independent national survey into the power of promotional products in the UK questioned businessmen and women about their behavioural trends and preferences for different promotional gifts.

Key findings:

  • Promotional products can deliver a higher or equal ROI than most forms of advertising
  • 66% of respondents said they could remember the brand on the promotional products they received during the last year
  • 79% said they were likely to do business with the company in the future
  • 8 out of 10 (84 per cent) respondents said that a branded promotional gift increases brand awareness
  • Over three quarters (87 per cent) of recipients said they kept a promotional gift for longer than 12 months
  • Over half (56 per cent) of respondents said their opinion of the brand /company was more favourable after receiving the promotional product

Promotional products can deliver higher or equal ROI than most forms of advertising

One of the most significant findings of the survey is that promotional products can deliver a higher ROI than radio and outdoor advertising and a ROI that is equal to TV and print advertising. The cost per impression for a mug is £0.001, a mid-range pen £0.001, a calendar £0.004, a USB stick £0.005 and an umbrella £0.003. With an average cost per impression of £0.003, these figures compare extremely favourably with the cost per impression of other media with TV coming in at £0.008, radio at £0.003 and advertising hoardings at £0.003.

promotional products BPMA survey

New statistics show conclusive link between promotional products, branding and sales.

Stephen Barker, BPMA board director, said: “These figures show that promotional merchandise is a highly cost-effective form of promotion which gives a ROI that is higher or equal to all other forms of media. While radio and advertising hoardings have a relatively comparable cost per impression, they have a higher cost of entry than promotional items, requiring far larger sums to be spent to achieve this cost per impression. With an average cost per impression of £0.003 promotional items achieve a comparable ROI to media requiring a much larger outlay and it enables companies with a modest marketing budget to punch above their weight in terms of the level of exposure achieved.”

The survey also examined how much the respondents opinion changed after receiving a promotional item, giving a measure of how such products can affect feelings, perceptions and buying activity. Over half (56 per cent) of respondents said they felt more favourable towards the brand/company. When asked how much more or less likely they were to do business with the company in the future after receiving the promotional item over three-quarters (79 per cent) said they were more likely.

QR Codes Create a Buzz on Customised Promotional Products From EmbroidMe

Have you noticed those funny looking square bar codes popping up everywhere? They are called QR (quick response) codes, and they have opened up a whole new realm of marketing possibilities. It’s time to get ahead of the game and apply QR embellishments to customised promotional products.

A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be scanned by a smartphone camera and transfers information. Based on the type of code it is, it might direct the viewer to a website, make a phone call, deliver a vCard or more. Imagine the conversation and fun clients can have discovering what a company’s code has to offer.

To date, QR codes have been spotted on direct mail pieces, movie posters, business cards and in Times Square. EmbroidMe’s catalog of customized promotional products offers an incredible variety of products that a code can be applied to, enabling a company to take full advantage of QR codes to market to consumers in a fun and interactive way.

Shirts, mugs, keychains, bags, nearly the entire line of customized promotional products from EmbroidMe can be given new life with a simple QR code, that will enable companies to engage clients by the nature of the QR code’s detail, all while promoting the brand. Imagine a brand’s QR code on t-shirts (or parka, in Maine) for a custom promotion.

Or, making a bigger impression by printing up large numbers of t-shirts have people wear them to a public event like a ballgame, street fair or campaign stop. For more impact, put different messages on the shirts, so that people will take more scans of more of the codes that can also be turned into a “retweet” so that customers can share in the promotion on Twitter.

“As more people embrace new technology, fun and innovative ways to incorporate it will be adopted quickly. Companies can leverage this to their advantage by providing the right customized promotional products, at the right time,” said Christine Marion, director of retail operations for EmbroidMe.
