You think to yourself, those coasters are cool, but what use do they have for our company? While promotional items might seem like something extra you can let fall by the wayside, here are three ways your company could use promotional items:
1) Promotional items can increase company morale.
As part of the social media team at EZ Corporate Clothing, we have weekly meetings where we discuss what we've been doing on social for the past week. After a particularly stellar social week last summer, our CEO surprised us all with branded company flip flops. We all wore them proudly to the beach all summer. Receiving the flip flops as a reward for our efforts at work made us proud to wear our company logo both in the office and outside.
2) Promotion items can build teamwork.
What better way to build teamwork than a little friendly competition? Maybe reward your top selling sales rep with this sophisticated branded custom desk clock, or thank your employees for reading business books with a custom engraved metal key chain.
3) Promotional items act as "Free" advertising.
Okay so these promotional items aren't free but say you do a tote bag giveaway; your promotional item can double as a billboard for your company. Just make sure your tote bag is worthy of entering a contest for! If you live in or commute to New York City, we're sure you've seen the ubiquitous Penguin Classics tote bag--the perfect example of a tote worth retweeting a tweet or sharing a Facebook post for.
