Don’t Stress! Marketing Success with Branded Stress Balls

Do you want to know how to get a lot of promotional impact out of your marketing efforts? Promotional stress balls can be used in creative ways to boost brand awareness. They’re inexpensive and consumers are likely to keep them around, making them a great promotional giveaway.

A Word about Branding

The point of branding is to build an emotional connection between a consumer and a business. This is done with a name, logo, or color scheme. While it takes time to build this kind of rapport, a promotional giveaway can be a good short cut.

Consumer studies tell marketers that the more often someone thinks of a business, the more likely they are to choose that business when they need something. By imprinting your name or logo on stress balls, the consumer sees your message every time they use it.

There’s a secondary benefit as well. Regardless of whether they want a product or a service, shoppers have a problem to be solved. Promotional stress balls reinforce the idea that your business does just that.
Do Promotional Stress Balls Work?

Stress balls began as a therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine. Although they look a little different in modern times, the principle behind them is the same. When the ball is squeezed, the hand and arm muscles will contract. When the ball is released, the tension in the hand and arm muscles is also released. This improves circulation and relieves the physical effects of stress. When squeezed rhythmically, it will also regulate breathing, relax muscle tissue, and improve some arthritic conditions.

Do It Differently

Promotional stress balls are a common giveaway item. However, that doesn’t mean that they’re not effective marketing tools. The key is to do it differently from your competitors. Here are a few tips to get the idea train rolling:


  • Themed promotional stress balls are a lot of fun. If you’re in the healthcare field, you can buy them shaped like a heart. A dentist can buy them shaped like a tooth. They are available in a huge variety of different styles: globes, food, bobble-head dolls, and many more. The possibilities are endless.
  • Breast Cancer Awareness month is a perfect opportunity to launch your own memorable campaign. Stress balls are a great gift for customers. It also lets them know that you believe in a cause. The same idea can be applied for smoking cessation.

Promotional USB Flash Drives

Promotional USB drives are often the most popular corporate swag, no matter the event. They serve as a testament to the idea that functionality breeds success in the realm of promotional marketing items. In other words, USB drives are useful, so they tend to offer a lasting value that other products may not. So how do you choose the right USB drive for your brand? Well, there is plenty to consider!

rushIMPRINT offers a variety of styles, but we’ll focus on a few of the most popular styles. The classic Fold Out Flash Drive is available in 1 and 16 GBs. It’s the most common USB style, and is always a good choice. However, technology changes daily, and we must move forward with it. The Practical Alloy Series USB Cards, for instance, add an innovative twist to the classic USB design because they can easily be carried in a wallet or purse like a credit card. Or, if you are stuck between using pens or USB’s, why not go with a combination of the two? The USB flash drive pen functions as both a pen and a USB. It even includes a laser pointer for presentations. If you’re looking for a super-thin option, the Wafer Series USB Card may be the way to go. These cards offer a large area for displaying your brand information and contact details, despite being just 2.3 mm thick. They’re a perfectl fit to travel with potential clients.

USB drives offer an unbeatable functionality that almost guarantees lasting brand value. Customers won’t discard a USB drive as quickly as a keychain, if ever. So if you’re looking for a great way to build exposure for your brand, give promo USBs a shot.

According to the data recently released by the ASI, distribution industry growth totalled $4.6 billion in the last quarter.

This continued growth shows that while traditional print promotional materials may be a shrinking business, companies and individuals looking to increase their brand awareness are increasingly turning to distributors.

A look at a top promotional outlet, rushIMPIRINT (found online at http://www.rushimprint.com) will show that brand building buyers can move beyond marketing their brands and events on pens, t-shirts, and magnets. Rubber duckies, sports bottles, USB drives, beach balls, flower vases, and other unique items are all top sellers. As one of the top distributors in the promotions industry, their commitment to exciting, diverse products shows why the distribution sector is thriving.

Promotional marketing is big business and the larger the company, the more opportunities customers have for unique branded promo items.

Featuring highly creative inventories that are sure to please customers, the continued success of this specialized industry is a testament to customer’s continued sanctification with the results they have seen.

As the economy slowly but surely sees growth, distribution firms are seeing more orders with an emphasis on high returns. “…(clients) are demanding more value. In our case, they are demanding more creative value versus demanding lower pricing.” explains Mark Graham, president of Right Sleeve Marketing.
