Do Promotional Items Even Work?

Well, do they? It’s a fair question. Maybe you’ve seen something branded, a pen or a notebook, and wondered, “Does that actually do anything?”

We’re here to answer that question for you — yes. It’s why so many companies invest in it.

According to a study by Promotional Products Association International, nine in 10 consumers can remember branding on promotional products they have received, which is 67% higher than in broadcast advertising and 78% higher than in online advertising.

Simply put, promotional products have a better chance of getting your brand in someone’s mind than radio ads, television ads, or online ads.

Another benefit? They hang around longer. According to a 2016 study by the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI), most people keep promotional products for an average of eight months — which is about eight months longer than an ad would last.

So not only do promotional products have a higher success rate (success being measured by how well your brand is remembered) than other advertising methods, but they also have a longer life, which means more exposure, which means more chances to earn a new customer.
