Many companies use a secret tactic when promoting their business, to help get their brand name out there and to assist people in remember who they are! We're going to let you in on the big secret... it's promotional gifts (“shccchhh!”)
Promotional gifts have been used for many years by big and small companies. This is because it was soon realised that people using promotional gifts from a company on a regular basis, tended to remember the company name more. Not only did the recipient of the gift remember the company, but others who saw them using their promotional gifts also started to recognise the company brand too. There is no right or wrong decision, when you choose your promotional gifts, but if you choose when, where and who you hand them out to, could increase public interest.
For example if you were to hand out promotional cooking items at a cookery event, the public interest would be increased; compared to if you handed out the same promotional gifts at a motor sport event. With Christmas around the corner, many companies take this opportunity to invest in their promotional gifts, so they can hand them out as 'Christmas presents' from the company.
As many people will be receiving or buying a new smart phone from or for someone this year, companies can play on this in there promotional campaigns. For example handing out smart phone accessories as their promotional gifts. This will increase the interest of customers, as it saves them having to buy an accessory when they do get their new smart phones.
The smart phone... It’s a scary thought but most people today rely on their mobile phones to carry out even the simplest of tasks. But can they blame us? The mobile phone has made everything so much quicker and easier; such as catching up with friends, sharing memories, checking the weather and news, even reminding us of things we need to do. There is not a day or possibly even an hour that goes by where we all don’t check our mobile phone for messages, reminders and social network updates.
You could say many people are slightly addicted to their mobile phones, sad but true. Smart phones in particular are said to ease the stress from our lives, with new clever 'Apps' being developed every day. Recently we’ve see the development of the iphone 4, which even talks back to the user and recognizes their name... Oh how technology has advanced! It's no wonder the smart phone is on the top of everyone Christmas list this year.
