- Find a product that fits your business. For example, if you own a tech business, you should give a flash drive or other piece of technology.
- Think seasonal. You’ll want to give out different products in summer than you will winter. Your promotional items will be more effective if they’re going to be something that they will use within the next few weeks.
- Choose quality. Your promotional products say a lot about your business. If you give out cheap looking swag, people will associate your brand with cheap. However, if you give out something high quality that won’t break or fall apart, your company will be associated with quality.
- Wearables, drinkware, and office supplies are always popular go-to promotional products.
