Everyone likes surprises and loves receiving gifts. Over a period of time one learns with experience and necessary feedback which promotional products pack a punch. Sagging sales can be bolstered with fun giveaways. It is a sure way to win back clients and make new ones. Quite a few companies are happily giving away Ipods, USB flash drives, camera chips and other trendy items that can help them to touch base with people who matter to them the most. Just because one company is giving away premium products and promoting themselves it does not mean that spending money is important. In today’s situation one cannot have an unlimited budget for promotions. As businesses are tumbling and the domino effect is spreading globally, the promotional activities are restricted.
Even though the recession is pinching most companies globally, showing gratitude through marketing campaigns will prove helpful. In trying times when a promotional gift reaches you it means your contribution towards the company still counts. Even a token gesture saying the company cares speaks volumes of its commitment towards the employees. Business is slack but a small reward means so much. The recipient is bound to understand that. It is not the time to indulge in who gives the most expensive item. Even a small pen set, keyring, promotional umbrella, branded mugs or glasses are welcome. It is a good motivator to uplift the mood of clients and consumers. Spending in a small way also ensures the company will not buckle under pressure.
It is time to let everyone know business is open and quiet promotions in small ceremonies are suitable. This makes the struggle more bearable. Some promotional products that do not pinch the company and come within budget include t-shirts, medium sized bags, bottles, flasks, elegant pen holders, photo frames, vases, ceramic sculptures, multi-purpose conference folders and mouse pads. A company can also give a combination of two different gifts. The design can be such that it accommodates the logo and some message perfectly. During times when it is tough to keep business going, association with simple charities is also useful. Since most charities have non-profit products that can be used for promotional purposes, it is an ideal way not to hurt the reserve funds. It makes the company visible not only business wise but also gives a touch of philanthropy.
