Hi Dennis,

We use several items that you mentioned and I agree totally with your perspective of the items usefullness.

Here are the items we've stuck with as popular and useful:



Small first aid kits- glovebox item
small keychain led light- glovebox item
disposable cameras- glovebox item
magnetized- "to do" and "grocery" pads
pens
business card sized mint containers
coffee mugs
yardsticks
flyswatters
calendars

Default Promotional Product Uses

Just have to ask Dan.

Has your company used any screen printed t-shirts or embroidered shirts, caps, or jackets to provide employees with a 'uniform' look? Even if you use the more upscale embroidered button-front shirt for an upscale look, the 'uniform' can help establish your business 'branding'.

I've had a number of customer who thought they couldn't afford embroidered shirts, because of the short quantity or high perceived cost, before I quoted them our prices.

The promotional products you use internally with employees can be almost as important as those you use with clients as well as propsects.

The 24/7 nature or our products makes cost comparisons with 'mass media' almost laughable when you look at the CPI (Cost Per Impression) numbers they'll cite.

Best wishes for your continued success.

Dennis Bevers

There's a lot of promotional products that can be offer to people. And there's a lot of improvement to different products. As I suggest you can interview people about their favorite products and what can be their idea for improving it that will attract customers. Or just think for better ways and idea how you can attract customer for a certain products.

Randykirk, a bit out of your topic... but there is something in your post that drew my attention. When you participated in that tradeshow, the one you mentioned, how did the organizers manage the presentation flow? I really dislike showing my personal desktop on trade shows. I spend more than one hour before each event to cosmetize and organize my folders and alerts on desktop, put a nice photo to look professional. So, everytime I hear "trade show", I have my messy desktop in mind and the cleaning up procedure. How did you managed this aspect during your prezentation?

Default Screen Cleaner Stickers

The best thing I've found are...

Screen Cleaner Stickers

They act as little microfiber cleaners that stick your logo on the backs of phones (exactly where iPhone/Samsung/etc. put their logos- they figured out that it gets a ton of impressions daily) and stay on their 6 months to a year.

Pretty effective for the cost and have that 'wow' factor.
