6 Do’s and Don’ts of Promotional Product Marketing
1. Do: Keep Your Target Audience in Mind
You know who your current customers are, and hopefully you know who you are trying to target to become new customers. Whether it is a particular campaign, initiative or event, it is imperative to know your target audience before choosing your promotional products.
2. Do: Consider the Logistics of Distribution
Determine exactly who should receive your swag, and how. Each campaign or event may have a different recipient list, and as we learned in the first “Do,” you must know who your audience is. But, more than that, how will these products be distributed, and how will they get to your target market? Once you figure out the best way to reach your recipients, make sure your promotional products fit the plan.
3. Do: Add a Call to Action
Usually you are not giving a product away just because. What’s your objective? For the recipient to visit your website? Or, is it to engage in your social media? Go one step beyond just giving something away, and incorporate a call to action with the product. Get something back in return.
1. Don’t: Wait Until the Last Minute to Order
Great things take time. If you want the best swag (in your budget), be sure to plan for your order.Not every product has as many options. But the more you know about what you want, the better. If you don’t know, ask your sales or order representative to present you with a few good choices. It always helps if you provide approximate budget, estimated number of units and a time frame so that those options fit your needs.
2. Don’t: Use Generic Items
If you use items that people have already received a ton of, such as a stress ball or a cheap key chain, your product (and money) might just end up in the trash. If this is what happens to your giveaway, do not expect an effective impact. You can ensure your swag is held onto and remembered by making it useful, creative, high-quality and innovative. There are ways to make even simple products look sophisticated. Use guidance from your sales or order rep to help you make your items uniquely yours.
3. Don’t: Make It Difficult to Implement
Make sure your marketing campaign and the giving away of your promotional items is not overly complex. For example, if you are exchanging a promotional product for an e-mail address at a trade show, make the process simple with a business card drop or a quick form on an iPad. The more difficult you make the process, the harder meeting your objective will be.
