Branding is crucial in today’s multi-channelled environment. When a company builds a brand, it is a short-hand way of customers instantly recognising that they will get the same standard of quality when they are buying a product or service.
Promotional products are one of the key marketing tactics any business can use to build brand recognition, even on a small budget and within tight deadlines. In addition to brand awareness and better sales, the advertising tactics can yield a better return on investment.
Studies indicate that the longer a promotional product is kept, the more impressions it makes on the recipient or anyone else that sees the person using the promotional product. And with almost nine out of 10 (87%) keeping a promotional item for more than a year, that creates a lot of opportunities to see!
Getting your brand identity right is imperative if you want to make a good first impression, especially when 66% of people say they recalled the brand on the promotional products they received within last 12 months.
