Branded Merchandise... What's All The Fuss About?

Startup businesses and well established companies both know the benefits of branded merchandise. No matter what the size of the business/company it is obviously going to be very important to the owner(s), which is why it's important the business does everything it can to 'make it' in the current economic climate.

To increase business or sales many companies rely on promotional campaigns. There are many different types of promotional campaigns to choose from, such as creating TV/Newspaper adverts, putting up posters, handing out flyers or offering promotional discounts. However, one of the cheaper and most effective promotional options is branded merchandise.

Branded merchandise should not be underestimated, even the smallest of promotional items can make a big impact. For example, take promotional pens and pencils, have a look around the office to see just how many branded pens and pencils there are lying around... Then think every time those pens and pencils are used, the promotional message is subliminally entering the user's mind, helping them to remember or recognise the brand at a later date... does this sound like the sort of promotional impact your company wants?

There are thousands of promotional items out there that you can get your company or business branded onto, so don't think you are limited to pens and pencils. Other types of branded merchandise include; Promotional USB's, Promotional Clothing, Promotional Stress Toys and many, many more. There is even a range of eco-friendly branded merchandise for the environmentally friendly conscious company.

Environmentally friendly branded merchandise is a great way to associate your brand with a green planet-friendly message (which should impress current and potential customers). Some of the eco-friendly branded merchandise includes; Recycled Notebooks, Recycled Pencil Cases, Recycled Shopping Bags, and even eco-friendly USB Drives.

The power of the promotional bag

As mentioned, within the 'eco-friendly' range there are recycled shopping bags available, this should not be overlooked. Some may think promotional bags aren't interesting enough to be effective promotional products... however, if you think this you couldn't be further from the truth. Promotional bags are one of the most effective promotional items in today's market. They come in a range of different sizes and styles to suit a number of needs, and what's more, they aren't a throwaway item.

What's A 'Throwaway Item'?

A throwaway item is something you may hand out to people that has no use to them... if it has no use, it is usually looked at once then thrown away (offering hardly any promotion for the company or brand).

Promotional bags, on the other hand, are usually used again and again to carry a number of things, such as shopping, school/work equipment, and even gym clothing. Every time the customer uses these promotional bags they are showing your brand message to the world.
