Promotional Pens vs Corporate Keyboards

Do you prefer writing with a promotional pen or typing on a keyboard?

The Pen Vs The Keyboard - Which One Wins?

Many would say typing on a keyboard nowadays as let's face it... it's just easier! When typing on the computer there is no need to worry about your spelling (thanks goodness for spell check), the neatness of your handwriting or worry that someone will jog you whilst you're writing (leaving you with a massive line across your work).

All these worries (apparent whilst writing on paper) makes the computer the first choice when writing important work documents and essays. However when it comes to reliability, quickness and portability the pen will win hands down. Pens, unlike keyboards can be used on their own, there is no need to attach a pen to anything for it to work. Pens also unlike keyboards can be placed discretely in pockets and bags for use when out and about.

Why Are Promotional Pens Always A Great Marketing Tool?

You often find that many people have pens to hand when writing quick notes too, usually when on the phone. This is because there often isn't time to turn on the computer to write a quick note. When it comes to promoting yourself the promotional pen will be the first choice here too. Why, you ask? Well since you asked... promotional pens can come in a number of styles to suit the target market you want to advertise to. What does this mean? Promotional merchandise needs to appeal to your target market, otherwise, they won't be interested in it, and all the money you've spent on your promotional merchandise would have been wasted.

Choosing promotional merchandise for a target market can be simple and complicated at the same time. You need to think... are my target market men, women, children, old, young, etc. Then after some market research (about your target market), you can then choose the appropriate merchandise for your promotional campaign. Of course, choosing a promotional dress for a girl and trousers for a boy is obvious... but when it comes to choosing a promotional pen for your target market it can be a little less straight forward.
