The Need For Change

The Need For Change With Your Marketing & Promotional ItemsChange is inevitable for most businesses. If you don't adapt with the times, you'll soon find your business is struggling to stay afloat. Inevitable changes may include the way you perfect your business services, the products you offer, the physical look and feel of your store, your website design, and your advertising and marketing.

Your strategies to reach new clients must change. Doing the same thing you've always done with your marketing will certainly result in a plateau or, most likely, a gradual decline in effectiveness.

I recently experienced a rut I couldn't get out of until I decided to make a change. This "running" story made me think about how marketing/advertising works in the same way. You must execute change to see positive gains.

Reaching A Plateau

I've been a runner all my life, not competitively, but just because I love it. It's an outlet for stress. Over the past few decades, my running distance/times have been relatively unchanged, and I was content with that. I hadn't increased speed or distance in years. I ran the same path, distance, and pace time after time.

It was comfortable.

Recently, I decided I wanted to improve my pace, so I tried running faster. I ran my regular route in the fastest time I could and recorded it. After that, I was stuck. Occasionally I could beat that fastest time by a second or two, but I could not make significant improvements. No matter how fast I tried to run, the improvements were infrequent and minuscule.

I finally realized a change in my workout routine was needed. I added speed runs and interval training into my workouts. I also added some cross training by swimming laps on my non-run days. I even added some strength training for my legs, hips, and back. I changed up my runs each time, adding variety. I actually saw positive changes in the first week, and low and behold, my times dramatically increased within only a two weeks.

Before these changes I was in a comfort zone, and I didn't venture out of it. Now, I routinely push my limits, and I see gains. Big gains. Although I wasn't unhappy with running before, I'm now more excited about it because I am seeing forward progress.

Do Your Promotional Products Need A Changeup?

Does your company marketing sound eerily parallel to my running plateau? If so, it's time for change in how you are trying to reach your customers or prospects.

Maybe your company has been giving the same custom koozies away for the past 10 years.

Maybe for your company it has been the same promotional pens.

Other companies give the same, exact custom Christmas ornaments year after year to their clients. Yes, some of them get a little wild and crazy by changing up the ornament color, but they don't veer from the traditional ball ornaments.

The kind of change I'm talking about is a whole new approach. And that approach is different for every business. The strategy is going to depend on your client base, your location, your company culture, and many other aspects that determine the mood of your marketing.

With the right strategic approach, promotional products can open the door to many new clients. It begins with changing how you are using them.

The Trend of Minimalism – Understating Your Logo on Promotional Items

The Trend of Minimalism for Promotional ProductsPromotional products have become staples in marketing plans for small, medium, and large companies. That's because they work. They are tangible marketing pieces which are reused often, reminding the recipients about the advertising business.

Past trends were to plaster your company logo loud and proud on the front of products so your business is boldly seen by not only the person using that item, but also everyone around them.

While that strategy can be effective when utilized properly, there is a new trend.

Minimalism May Be Better

The new approach utilizes higher quality promotional items along with an understated company logo.

For example, if you give people a good quality handbag, shirt, or other useful item, they are much more apt to carry it around, wear it, and use it if the advertising company logo is not audaciously printed on the items.

An example is pictured above with the denim pencil pouch. There is no branding on the outside. However, the inside is fully branded to remind that person about your company. This subtle technique still gets your message across. It also increases the chances that person will actually use that promotional item frequently. Frequency of use is a big determining factor for return on your investment. The more they use the item, the more often they think of your company. If your promotional items aren't mobile billboards for your logo, you can bet people will be more apt to use those products.

Even if your clients absolutely LOVE doing business with your company, they don't necessarily want to consistently be advertising for your company. They will appreciate the understated company branding. They will use the products with minimal branding. They will receive your message in a stronger way.

Promotional Bags With Retail Look and Feel

Promotional Products with Branding on the Inside No branding is visible on the outside of these promotional bags giving them an upscale, retail look. But don't fear, the inside is branded with your logo!
Branded inside liner on promotional bags The inside of these promotional tote bags are branded with your logo in a step-and-repeat pattern.

The next time you are ready to buy tumblers, custom bags, or other premium promotional items, think about how a minimalist approach to your branding may actually be better than your bold and brazen logo overpowering the marketing pieces.

The Top 10 Buyers of Promotional Products

You see promotional products everywhere. That pen you use to sign your credit card receipt. The drink coaster at your local pub. The notepad in your hotel room. The coffee mugs at your favorite diner. Those are all promotional items.

This was a $20B dollar industry last year. So who's buying them? Below you'll find the top 10 buyers. If your business falls within one of the top 10 industries below and you're NOT using promotional items to promote your business, you're likely getting out-marketed by your competitors.

You see promotional products everywhere because they are useful, effective, and essential to strengthening company brands.

Every time you use a company branded item, their logo is "branded" into your brain. That company is brought to the forefront of your brain. While you may not need the products or services of that company at that moment, when you eventually do need them, you'll most likely think of them before you think about their competitors who didn't give you a useful promotional item.
