Whether you call them advertising specialties, tchotchkes, giveaways or promotional products, they are everywhere. Ninety-two percent of all businesses use them at least once per year for activities such as trade shows, seminars, product launches, safety programs or customer appreciation. Look around at the folks at work at your kids soccer game at the grocery store. So many of the people you see are sporting a shirt, cup, bag or pen with a logo on it.
Promotional products are everywhere because they work. What other marketing tool elicits a smile from the recipient and a thank you as a response? As the quality and usefulness of advertising products continues to improve, what was once an afterthought is now the centerpiece of an important message or marketing program.
Today, the Internet is dramatically improving the way companies purchase their promo products. Those who were quick to move online overwhelmingly say that they will never go back to the paper catalog and phone tag days of old.
