What Choices are There for Promotional Products?

Promoting your business is important. If no one knows about your business, it will not be very successful. One way to effectively promote your business is by offering promotional products. Promotional products get your business’s name out to the public while giving them a useful product that will remind them of your business’s name over and over.

What choices are there for promotional products? There are hundreds of choices. Here are some of the more popular ones.

Writing instruments – Ballpoint pens, pencils, highlighters, permanent markers, and other writing instruments are some of the most popular promotional products for a good reason. They are inexpensive, easy to distribute, and appreciated by the recipients.

Apparel – Another popular promotional product is apparel. Baseball hats, t-shirts, golf shirts, even boxer shorts can be imprinted with your company’s logo and information, and those who wear the promotional items become a walking billboard for your company.

Refrigerator magnets – A good quality refrigerator magnet can stay on someone’s refrigerator door for years. These inexpensive promotional products can often be in a shape that reflects your business such as a light bulb if you are an electrician or a coffee mug if you own a cafĂ©.

Calendars – A calendar is a whole year of advertising in just one product. Your companies name and contact information will be displayed for twelve months and looked at just about every business day.

Coffee mugs – Most people need a cup of coffee to get them going in the morning. Ceramic coffee mugs and travel coffee mugs are promotional products that get used by their recipients frequently. In addition to coffee mugs, other types of drink ware such as beer mugs or water bottles are popular choices, too.

Golf balls – If you’ve got an upscale clientele that appreciates a good 18 holes, then promotional golf balls with your company’s logo on them are appropriate promotional items.

Mouse pads – You can fit all of your company’s pertinent contact information on to a mousse pad and still have room for your logo or an attractive picture. One of the best things about promotional mousse pads is that the recipient will always know exactly where to find your information – right next to his keyboard at all times.

Automotive products – Car sun shades, ice scrapers, key chains and other products associated with cars make useful promotional products.

Toys – mini cube games, yo-yos, flying discs, beach balls, even poker chips all make fun and interesting promotional products.

Desktop items – Notepads, sticky notes, picture frames, pencil cups, and other items that are useful on the top of a desk are promotional items that the recipient will look at every time he sits at his desk.

Disposable cameras – One time use cameras can be made into promotional items by having their exterior promote your business. They can even have pre-exposed message strips on the bottom of each frame of film so that when the pictures get developed, your company’s message will be displayed on each one.

This is a just a sampling of the most popular promotional products available for businesses to use to get their name in plain view of their customers each and every day.
