Do Promotional Products Really Work?
The quick and easy answer: YES!
Let’s break it down, make it tangible, and see why promo products are worth the investment to every company.
Throughout school, sports, business, or even personal relationships we know all too well the principle – “out of sight, out of mind”. Unfortunately, absence doesn’t always make the heart “grow fonder” – but more often than not, absence creates forgetfulness. Sorry to all you braving those long-distance relationships. It’s not easy!
Consequently, the same holds true in promoting one’s business. The more you can stay involved with your prospects when they aren’t directly in front of you the more you will, in fact, be “in sight and in mind”. According to an article published last year by SageWorld (leader in promotional/technology information services) the following statistics are incredibly compelling:
91% of consumers have at least 1 promotional product in their kitchen
8 in 10 consumers own between one and 10 promotional products.
Before receiving a promotional product, 55% of people had done business with the advertiser. After receiving a promotional product, 85% of people did business with the advertiser.
With nearly six thousand impressions, bags generate more impressions than any other promotional product in the U.S.
Consumers hang on to promotional products for an average of 6.6 months.

The underlying message is simple:
Promotional Products = Promise
One of the best ways businesses can further their initiatives is to make sure they are getting the attention of their consumers. However, going back to the original examples, we may be present but we still have to take it a step further to make deep impressions with those we connect with. Again, we know all too well - going to school doesn’t earn you an “A”, simply “trying-out” doesn’t get you a starting spot on the team, and the principle that “being at work but not working simply doesn’t work”. Once we establish ourselves as being “present” (in sight) we NEED to follow through with quality “presence” (so we stay in mind). The best way to deliver quality presence is to KNOW your audience. To study them. Be an extension of their business. Push your clients to be better and give them ideas that further their business before yours. Make it about themat all times.
