Write it down with Promotional Pens

If you are looking at launching a new marketing campaign then you should consider which promotional products to use, why not invest in promotional pens?

What To Consider When Launching A Campaign

Before you make the step of launching a campaign, think about:

  • How will it work?
  • Who are you going to be targeting? 
  • Where do you need to go to target them? 
  • What do you need to do to target them? 

Before spending a penny, you should think about all of these factors to ensure you're not wasting any money. Once you have thought of these, you can consider using promotional pens to invest in. 

How Using Promotional Pens Can Boost Your Marketing

Any promotional item can help to create brand awareness because, unlike traditional advertising, promotional products are more difficult to miss. For example, if you were to use a promotional pen, then someone will actually use it. This means that you can guarantee that at least one person is seeing your advert, not including the number of people who will see them use the pen. 

Promotional pens will also offer a better return on marketing investment than other promotional products. As already mentioned, you can guarantee that your product is being seen by at least one person when you use promotional pens. In comparison, flyers and other paper adverts will often be ignored and thrown away. Pens are less likely to be thrown away as we actually have a use for them. 

Promotional products are generally used for a variety of reasons. The first reason is to generate brand awareness and to build relationships. People will also enjoy a free gift and are likely to tell friends if they have received a gift from you. Even a gift as small as a pen is guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipient. 

Promotional pens won't always stay with the original recipient. Pens are more likely to be transferred to other people. Think about the last time you purchased a pen, it is likely you will have 'borrowed' them over the years, always forgetting to give the pen back to its original owner.
