My company is built on the belief that even small companies, with an even smaller advertising budget, can effectively market and sell their product or service. Often the simplest ideas create the best results. Effective advertising does not have to be expensive!
One of the best ways to publicize your brand or company is through the use of promotional merchandise. These types of products are called giveaways, premiums, or incentives. They can be used as an added incentive for a customer to purchase a product or service, or can be given away to help build name recognition and create brand loyalty. It is important to be realistic and choose a premium or merchandise line that matches your corporate image and philosophy. In this way, you will not only be promoting the immediate product, but the long term image that your company stands for.
The effectiveness of a promotional product can be difficult to measure. Standard methods of calculating a cost per thousand contacts only apply to the most rudimentary items like Post-It® note pads. True measurability is much more subjective and often reflected in feedback from your customers. Nevertheless, there should be a long term noticeable change toward your desired goal; whether it is increased sales, improved customer relations or brand awareness.
The implementation of a promotional merchandise program should not be taken lightly. It can be part of the normal marketing mix of advertising, promotion, public relations, and direct mailings. Often the task of purchasing such "gifts" is relegated to employees who do not have the experience or the knowledge needed to create the best promotion. Well thought out premiums can be used in every aspect of business. Let us show you how a merchandise program can suit your budget and goals.
