What Are Promotional Products?

Promotional merchandise, promotional items, promotional products, promotional gifts, or advertising gifts, sometimes nicknamed swag or schwag, are articles of merchandise (often branded with a logo) used in marketing and communication programs. They are given away to promote a company, corporate image, brand, or event. These items are usually imprinted with a company's name, logo or slogan, and given away at trade shows, conferences, and as part of guerrilla marketing campaigns.  (definition courtesy of Wikipedia)

Why Should You Use Promotional Products?

PPAI (Promotional Products Association International) did a study in November of 2012 that revealed the following statistics about promotional products. We will let the numbers do the talking. 1) Recall of the advertiser and message behind the first promotional item recalled are very high. While 88% recalled the advertiser from a promotional product received in the past 12 months, 71% recalled advertisers on a newspaper or magazine read a week before, which speaks to the power of promotional products to support brand recall. 2) Financial services, retailers, apparel brands and electronics manufacturers are the most commonly recalled advertisers of promotional products. The most often recalled promotional product categories include: • Wearables (41%): Including Shirts (22%), Caps/Headwear (11%), Outerwear (6%) Other Wearables (2%) • Writing Instruments (35%) • Drinkware (19%) 3) Eight in 10 consumers own between one and 10 promotional products, six in 10 keep them for up to two years, and about half (53%) use a promo item at least once a week or more often 4) The main reason for keeping a promotional product is usefulness. Ranking higher in usefulness are Computer Products (100%), Health & Safety Products (100%), and Writing Instruments (91%) 5) Sporting Goods/Leisure Products/Travel Accessories (24%), Housewares/Tools (21%) and Wearables (23%) are more often kept because of their perceived attractiveness 6) The top categories of promotional products kept because they can be used for contact information reference are Buttons/Badges/Ribbons/Stickers/Magnets (33%), Electronic Devices & Accessories (29%) and Computer Products (23%). However, promotional products are not often used for contact information reference. Only 35% have ever used promotional items for this purpose 7) Before receiving the promotional products, about half of the consumers had done business with the advertiser (55%). After receiving the promotional products, 85% did business with the advertiser. 8) Advertisers were also able to increase their business even among those who hadn't done any business with them before (11%).
