In today’s business world, having a great product isn’t enough to put you ahead of the competition. This is why it is so important to choose the right product from your line as your promotional piece. However, it’s often not as easy as it sounds. Therefore, we’ve compiled three major mistakes your business should avoid when picking a promotional product.
Buying the Cheapest Possible
One of your responsibilities as a business leader is to keep costs down. However, your promotional product should not be an area to skimp out on. This is especially important if you’re a new company. Putting out a cheaply made product will no doubt come back to haunt you. In the age of communication, word will quickly go around that your brand sells cheap items, even if your promotional item was one that you gave away for free. This can lead to unrecoverable branding issues.
Avoid Anything for Inside a Car
You might be thinking that because almost everyone has a car, then your promotional product must be something for it. To be honest, many things can be distracting in a car. This is why you should stay clear from putting out anything for this market. In addition, safety should also be a concern. Although your product may be perfectly safe to use, there are certainly people out there who will misuse it and get themselves involved in an accident. No matter whose fault it is, your company will get most of the blame for it.
Don’t Forget Value
Simply putting out something that looks nice and high-quality isn’t enough to make the sale. What you need to do when determining which product should be pushed for this promotion is to choose one that provides value to your customers. For example, a few years back, many companies were giving out fidget spinners to customers and clients. Not only did this product allow them to market their company, but the fidget spinner was also useful to those who got it. In the end, it’s the value you provide to the customer that makes an okay product into a successful product.
It can be difficult to choose which promotional product is the best one to represent your company. There are many factors to consider, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. Remember to avoid going the cheap route, avoid anything for the inside of a car, and remember the importance of providing value. With some careful thought, you can choose the correct route to take for your company’s promotional products.
