Now, we all know that the classic British stereotype is that we love to talk about the weather: from the temperature to the strength of the wind, we love weather small talk. However, it turns out that this cliched image is in fact true, with a recent study suggesting that the average Brit spends the equivalent of four and a half months of their life chatting about the weather!
This same study shows that the typical person will spend an average of 11 minutes every week checking the weather forecast - what did we do before the BBC weather app? So it would make sense to add some wet weather essentials into your promotional plans.
Whether you're looking for a bunch of branded brollies to keep in-house so your team doesn't get caught short with a sudden shower or printed ponchos for giveaways to current and potential customers, Total Merchandise has got all of your wet weather needs covered (literally!).
- Best Rainy Day Essentials To Keep Your Customers Dry In 2020
- Singin' In The Rain: The Best Branded Umbrellas For Your Business
Why Choose Promotional Wet Weather Essentials?
The UK has an average 1,154mm of rainfall each year - from small showers to heavy downpours - and it goes without saying that we all need the must-have items that will keep us dry on those rainy days. From thick winter coats to lightweight waterproof jackets, storm-proof branded umbrellas to telescopic brollies that fit perfectly in a bag, there is a wide range of items out there to suit all sorts of wet weather conditions.
Promotional products that are ideal for rainy days aren't single-use items. Rather, these reusable giveaways are manufactured from durable materials and are designed to last, meaning the end-user can use them time and time again, resulting in repeated advertising for your business message or logo.
And it doesn't end there. Not only do these items promote your brand with every use but as they are extremely practical products they have a high-perceived value and will remind your customers of your business when they need you most - pretty good, hey?
Branded Umbrellas For Whatever The Weather ☔️
What's not to love about the rain? The calming sound of the droplets landing on windows, the familiar smell of petrichor (the scent of rain after a dry period), the hydration of greenery and crops... And with our range of branded brollies, the opportunity to get your brand out-and-about.
According to a study published by the Advertising Speciality Institute (ASI), 45% of American consumers own promotional umbrellas; so it's not completely off the mark to assume that a similar percentage of Brits own (or would like to own) a branded brolly, too. Our range of promo umbrellas has got both you and your customers covered - pardon the pun.
