There are literally thousands of promotional items that you can customize and give away, but not all of them will make sense for your business so you will want to make sure that you only give away promotional items that are complementary to your industry or business. For example, let’s say that you are in the outdoor game business (we have one of those) and you sell the most fun lawn game on the market, Corkaine. What do you think will be a good promotional item to give away for this business? Since your target market is people who will be outside playing your game, you could choose an item like sunglasses since it complements your niche nicely. Other great promotional items for this business would include hats, water bottles, and lip balm. However, USB sticks, calendars, and phone chargers aren’t as complimentary…you get the idea.
Here is just a small list of common promotional items that you should consider using to advertise your business. Some of these cost as little as $.01 cents each too!
Magnets | Stickers | Calendars | Cofee Mugs | Hats | Pens | Coasters | Toys | Wristbands | Tote Bags | Gym Bags | Hand Sanitizer | Stress Balls | Keychains | Sunglasses | Blankets | Chairs | Can Coolers | Wedding Napkins | Water Bottles | Phone Chargers | Backpacks | Flying Discs | Lanyards | Lip Balm | Cups | USB Sticks | Stationary | and so much more…
