When you attend a conference or sales meeting you are often given a bag of promotional products at the end of the presentation or event. Are you typically pleased by the range of promotional gifts you receive, or do the majority of them just end up in the trash?
Companies make plenty of common mistakes when they order promotional products to hand out to their clients and their customers. Too often they rely on old standbys such as memory sticks, pens, caps, notepads and coasters. The people receiving such items already probably have enough memory sticks, pens, caps, notepads and coasters already, so what you give them simply ends up in a drawer somewhere, or even worse, in the trash.
People seldom enjoy receiving junk, which is why you should ensure that the promotional items that you are giving out are actually things that people want. You could even consider giving them items such as candy – the candy is not going to hang around for long but the memory that they actually got something useful from you will.
You can be even smarter and tailor your items to target a specific group. Say you are holding a sales event for people from all across the country – well, people will have travelled to get to your event, so why not give them something that will help them in their travels, such as luggage straps or toiletry bags?
