Want More Exposure, Get a Great Pen

Do you have that pen that may as well be one of your prized possessions?  One that you will not let anyone borrow because it might “disappear”?  I know that you do, or did at one point. That pen is THE ONE. Why did you like it so much? Was it gold and fancy?  Did it write smoother than any other pen? Was it one with cool features?  Whatever the reason was, you remembered it.

That pen probably had a logo or company name on it.  I know that my favorite pen did. Since it was my favorite one, of course I remember the logo that was on it too.  It turns out that the pen was branded with the AC/DC logo.  It was a shiny metallic blue that lit up when you clicked it on and off.  The letters were white and the logo was iconic, with the lightning bolt in the middle. It was the best pen and it “disappeared”.  Just like I remember the logo on that pen, other people and potential customers will remember the logo on their favorite pen as well.  And wouldn’t it be great if that logo was yours?

All companies ask themselves; “How do we get ourselves out there, how do we gain more exposure?”

Clearly AC/DC has moved on from branding only Pens

A great pen could be your answer. That pen may be the reason you get a new customer. You will be exposed to potential customers, as well as those “magicians “who pull their “disappearing acts.”  Which is unfortunate for the pen owner, or should I say previous owner now, but great for companies who want that exposure. Something as simple as the right promotional product can do wonders for your company. Something as simple as a great pen can help increase your exposure to the right people and help you increase your sales.

Lead the League in Attendance.. With Custom Gifts

The bobblehead is credited as one of the most coveted and valuable custom gifts - but how does that translate into actual sales? Take a look at the LA Dodgers, who, despite not having the best record in baseball, have the highest attendance in the league. Leading the pack at nearly 46, 000 attendees per game, the west coast team neatly beats out their competitors, the St. Louis Cardinals, by about 3,000 people per game. 

The reason is simple; more people come to games when there is a custom gift. A unique item can bolster attendance by as much as 15,000 to 20,000 people, and a bobblehead is an envied custom gift among fans. Give attendees and clients a custom gift, and you'll see a boost in sales.

Nostalgic Promotional Buttons

A presidential election button is inarguably the greatest promotional item ever crafted by the hands of mere mortals.  If Nixon’s iconic handsome smile could gain national recognition from such a successful advertising tool, imagine what this item could do for your organization. 

The design of these buttons clearly announces useful information while simultaneously evoking a pleasant euphoria of “the good ole days” via their retro imagery.  No action proclaims such a deep unwavering support than brandishing this shiny circular piece of Americana.  Emblazon your client’s attire with a nostalgic promotional button, and remember that at these prices “I am not a crook.”

Custom Umbrellas Make Great Corporate Gifts.

If your Monday morning was anything like mine today; you barely made it in the door before it started absolutely pouring rain outside.  Rainy days like this one always remind me why I really enjoy working in the promotional product and corporate gift world.  We have literally dozens of umbrella samples strewn about the office at all times.  I am never stuck in the rain without an umbrella!

When you give the gift of a custom umbrella, not only do you reinforce your branding, but you are also giving the recipient something so useful that they will want to keep it as long as possible.  This works even better when the gift of an umbrella ties in perfectly to the message that your company is trying to send.   Take Rand for example:

Their umbrellas are covered in messages about 'stopping leaks' and list some of the services that they offer.  This is a brilliant way to use an umbrella as a gift and as a billboard.

United has umbrellas at all styles and  price price points.  Are you giving your clients something that they will use and keep this rainy season?

Unique Party Promotional Product.

Jello is delicious.  Vodka is delicious.  Jello shots are spectacular.

However, if you have ever been presented with a jello shot at a party, you know that you must either tear into the cup and use your oral dexterity to take the shot.  Or - at the cost of sticky fingers - do what is colloquially referred to as 'the finger scoop'.

If you have ever seen a delicious spread like this one:

You know you are in for a treat.  And your hands will probably smell like jello for a while...  (at least until your hangover wears off).

Not any more, folks!  With this new Promotional Product, your parties will never be the same.  Its called the Twist n' Shot.  And its less than $1 at about 1,000 pieces.

No more sticky faces or fingers.  Just twist the rim and your jello shot is free of any hindrances or obstacles. With a sleek imprint surface, your logo will look great and will probably be the only thing remembered the next morning anyway.
