Come sun, rain or snow you can be sure there is a promotional item to suit the weather or season you’re promoting in. For example, there is promotional ice scrapers and winter car kits to help you fight off the snow… promotional umbrellas to hide under when the rain comes and promotional sunglasses to protect your eyes when the sun does finally decide to show its face.
Why choose promotional merchandise to suit the season? Having promotional merchandise that suits the weather or season you’re organising your promotional campaign in will attract the customers a lot more…
Think about it, not many people would go round buying sunglasses in the winter (unless they were half price of course). Many people usually buy or pick up things to suit the season they are in, i.e. sunglasses in the summer and raincoats and long Johns in the winter. The main reason for this is because those particular items are useful to the user at that moment in time.
Can promotional merchandise help bring in customers? Giving away useful promotional merchandise at events like seminars, annual days, corporate parties, etc has become a must for almost every organisation. As useful promotional merchandise plays a vital role in the success of many companies and organisations… mainly because the promotional items they give out are a great way to get the company’s name in front of potential clients.
Notice the word ‘useful’ in front of promotional merchandise? It’s important to note that the provider must understand the needs and wants of the consumer and then select the products accordingly, so they are useful to the customer. Hence why seasonal promotional merchandise is so popular, as people will need and want ice scrapers in the winter and sunglasses in the summer.
If a promotional product offers a useful purpose to the customer, the customer will be able to form a bond with it. If they do form a bond with it, the item will have a greater impact on the customer and remind them of the services or the products of that company. Need a bit more promotion?
It’s not only potential customers you can hand out promotional merchandise too, you can also try handing it out to members of staff or anyone you think will make use of the promotional item you give them… the idea is to accelerate the marketability of the brand, so hand your promotional merchandise out to as many people as possible!
