  • 5 Ways to Use Promotional Items to Promote Your Business


    Marketing is an integral part of any business strategy. And how effective you are at it largely determines how much edge you have over the competition. But, always keep in mind that your competition is probably using the same marketing rule-book as you. So, to gain that edge, and remain on top, it might just be in your best interests to leave the beaten path and try a different – and maybe, unusual – approach to marketing.
    Giving away promotional items is one such unusual approach. It gets your products into your customer’s hands. This gives you free advertising and better still, guarantees customer loyalty. Here is how to use promotional items effectively.

     

    1) Use Promotional Items at Work
    Your employees should be the first to market your products and services. Get them to wear promotional items like branded t-shirts to work. Customers are likely to enquire about your services if they get a visible reminder of what you do. And if your product line includes something that your employees can use daily at work, use it. Don’t forget to hand out promotional material during team-building events involving your employees.

     

    2) Give Promotional Items to Your Customers
    Everyone loves freebies, so use this to your advantage. After generating interest by wearing promotional items to work, get the items into the hands of your customers. You could give out custom printed bumper stickers, jackets, t-shirts and duffle bags to name a few.
    And do not just target customers who show up at your business premises, target your social media followers as well. When customers love your promotional items, two things happen. One, they become great advocates for your products and services. And two, they remain loyal to your brand for years to come.

     

    3) Give Promotional Items to Your Sales Team
    Another use of promotional items is to motivate your sales team. Set sales targets and when a sales person reaches one, give him or her something like a branded jacket. By doing so, you kill two birds with one stone. Your sales crew works much harder to market your product because they stand to gain. And, the promotional items they wear pitch in and do some advertising of their own too.

     

    4) Give out Promotional Items at Company-Sponsored Events
    Giving out free merchandise should extend beyond your employees, sales team and customers. You must reach out to potential customers also. Be generous with freebies during company-sponsored events such as sales cruises, picnics or PR events to leave a lasting impact on people.

     

    5) Use Promotional Items at Trade Fairs
    Trade fairs give your business more exposure than company sponsored events. Some even have an international audience. So, when participating in one, ensure that those attending the fair get a company branded duffle bag, pen or t-shirt. Only ensure that the items are of the best quality possible. Remember, you have one chance to make a good first impression.

     

    Conclusion
    The use of promotional items as marketing tools is widely overlooked by most entrepreneurs. They instead tend to stick to tried-and-tested marketing strategies. And although some consider giving away promotional material as an added expense, it is an effective marketing tool, and, thus, a worthwhile investment.

  • Knowing everything about Promotional Helium Balloons

    Helium, the magic gas that allows us to pump up promotional balloons and to let them go in the sky.
    Here is a summary of everything you need to know to organize successful events with a wonderful balloon decoration.

    1. INNOCUOUS

    Helium is a gas (low responsive), colourless, odourless, non-toxic and non-flammable. This gas was discovered in 1868 by a French astronomer named Jules Janssen. Helium gas is completely innocuous, besides it’s used for medical use mixed with other gasses.

    2. LIGHTER THAN AIR

    Helium is 7 times lighter than air (that’s why inflated helium balloons fly), 50 times more compressible than water, has a thermal conductivity 5 times bigger than air and helium outspreads through solid body 3 times faster than air. This is THE major information to keep in mind because it means inflated helium balloons will not stay inflated as long as air inflated balloons. At this point, balloons’ quality is major. Of course, the cheaper your balloons will be, the thinner the latex will be as well (if it’s real latex)
    Clearly, if you’re organising a party and want to inflate balloon with helium, never decide to inflate the balloons the previous day to anticipate or your balloons will be deflated the D Day. It’s very important, while you use helium, to inflate your balloons at the latest moment. To give you an estimate, I’d say inflated helium balloons remain inflated approximately 11 to 15 hours.



    3. MYLAR BALLOONS
    We already said it, balloons’ quality is very important for the gas quickness to evaporate. Mylar is more resistant than latex, it preserves helium 7 times longer than classic latex balloons.

    The DUCK VOICE produced when we inhale helium is due to the fact that helium replace the air in our respiratory tracts. As helium is less dense than air we usually breathe, the sound quickness is faster. The respiratory tracks will vibrate faster and sounds will have a higher frequency. As a result, we’ll get a high-pitched and nasal voice. You’ll find here a good example with the famous Morgan Freeman video and the fabulous Dolce & Gabbana advertisement.

    All right, you now know the main things about inflated helium balloons. Keep in mind to choose balloons of good quality, ask iPromote for any assistance
