What promotional products work for your business?

15 replies
Hi,

We are a promotional products distributor and are looking to develop our product range. There are obviously some factors that come into place when we are looking to add new products.

Many companies are moving further into the digital age and we are looking to develop our catalog.

Please let me know your suggestions

Thanks

      We have a range of over 2,000 standard items. There are a number of items that we sell lots of, promotional mugs, printed tote bags, and branded pens.

      But what we are really looking for, is products that others are recommending. We don't know all of our customers target audience, so getting an insight is really helpful.

        Personally I love when retailers include stickers that I didn't expect with things that I've ordered. I don't know why because half the time I don't even stick them to anything, but just the fact that they put them in there makes me happy (kind of silly I know )

    Just a couple days ago a local plumber came by to pick up his trailer that I had custom printed and wrapped for him. He said that he received a phone call already within 5 minutes from leaving the shop!!

    Not what you asked, but I think it will help you a lot: https://www.asicentral.com/Downloads...study-2013.pdf


    https://www.asicentral.com/Downloads...study-2013.pdf


    They are studies by the Advertising Specialty Institute.



    https://www.ppai.org/media/2099/2017...dy-booklet.pdf This one's by Promotional Products Association International.


    They are biased in favor of promotional products, but give you a relative effectiveness of various products. By effectiveness, I mean, number of impressions.


    As someone else has already said, a lot of it has to do with how you use them/ what you write on them.

    Healthcare products.

    Especially weight loss.

    But know these, men and women have very different philosophies and objectives when it comes to losing weight.

    For men, they just want to lose weight so that they can eat what they want or better still, lose weight without compromising what they like to eat.

    For women, it may be a different case. Especially after their pregnancy or at some point when they want to lose weight.

    But i could be wrong here.

    In my country Singapore, weight loss and slimming products are very popular in healthcare as much as digital investments and e-learning programs.

    I suggest you add jewelry to your catalog. The world of beauty is moving to another level so if you can add a few products on your list, you will wreck in profits.

    It largely depends on your clients budget obviously. I don't personally purchase promotional products for my businesses my suggestions come from attending my fair share of trade shows. Things i'm tired of are pens, key chains, stickers (unless I am very brand loyal e.g. Nike or Toronto Maple Leafs) band-aid cases, lanyards or USB sticks. Those things are all a dime a dozen, I might end up with 10 pens when I go to a trade show. What really stands out are useful or bigger ticket items such as T-shirts, hats, branded hand towels, water bottles, tote bags. Smaller ticket items that stand out to me; google had a promo product that was a small case with a pen, highlighter, pencil and something else combined in a "mini" package that I thought was very different, notebook, bottle opener
