The Short Answer
I often get asked if promotional products work. The short answer is YES. Without a doubt promotional products are a great way for businesses and schools to promote their brand and identity. Stop and think about it for a moment, how many items do you personally have with a logo on them. I bet you have several in your closet and around your house. The fact is people hang onto to products, even if they have a logo on them.
Below is a chart put together by the Promotional Products Industry that illustrates how effective the use of promotional products can be to increase brand visibility.
It’s In The Numbers
There are a few statistics that really jump out. First, 88% of the people who received a promotional product remember the company that gave them the gift. That is an incredibly high number. Second, 80% of people own at least one promotional product and 53% of those people use them at least once a week. That is a ton of exposure for your brand.
A lot of money is spent on print advertising, radio advertising and television advertising. How many of those ads do you remember? I would bet not a lot of them. Sure, a few stand out, but overall not many. In my opinion that is a lot of wasted money. You would be much better off spending your advertising dollars on products that people actually enjoy receiving, will use and will help them remember your brand.
