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.
Another report, the 2011 State of Marketing: Outlook, Intentions and Investments, found that marketers are now beginning to focus, and accordingly spend more, on digital media and online marketing. Comparative research by the CMO Council revealed that of the marketers surveyed, a majority planned to increase their social media budgets by more than 5%. This budget increase could also be allotted to other forms of online marketing such as search engine optimization, mobile initiatives, online videos and banners, and brand building and promo products.Despite these increases, the report states that increased spending on digital media will still make up only a maximum of 10% of marketing expenditure. According to the CMO Council, it is of critical importance that marketers implement an approach that takes advantage of both digital and online marketing tactics. With the effects of these strategies capable of measurement, it’s no wonder these approaches are becoming increasingly popular for brand building and increased sales. This was reinforced by CMO Council’s Executive Director, Donovan Neale-May: “Today’s successful marketing organization is unifying its extended ecosystem, aligning more effectively with business and sales groups and integrating campaign components to drive efficiency and more measurable outcomes.”
In addition to the enhanced brand building tactics and increased use of promotional items, the report also revealed the participants’ plans to enhance customer segmentation and targeting. The CMO Council concluded by saying that marketing, has evolved from simple branding and now impacts many aspects of business operations, including strategic planning and forecasting, business development, pricing, channel management, and even product design.
Are you tired of same old boring company picnic? There’s an easy way to spice things up, and leave a lasting impression on your employees. rushIMPRINT carries several products that add some much-needed excitement and enjoyment to the mundane picnic. Use them to liven up the atmosphere or even to promote a little competition by raffling off some of these quality products. Friendly competition through drawings, or even giving swag away as a gift to your employees, is an effective way to boost morale. These exciting products are imprinted with your company logo, a valuable method of marketing your company to your employees’ friends and family.
For example, the Koozie Picnic Kooler is a stylish way to cool off those sodas or other beverages. It gives a professional look and feel to the bags’ intriguing style, and can hold 18 beverages to cool off even the hottest of picnics. Plus, there are several colors to choose from. A well-insulated front compartment on the watertight main compartment holds even more picnic items. There are several promotional coolers to choose from!
We also carry the very sleek custom picnic basket cooler. It’s distinctive design allows storage for up to 24 12oz. cans at a time. These baskets spruce up any picnic with their professional appearance. External pockets provide easy storage of accessories, and a dual snap enclosure supplies a tight seal for those beverages.
How many company picnics just don’t have enough seating for everybody? A fun, polished way to fix this problem is a branded folding chair. These chairs are made of a high-quality tubular steel support and nylon for the seating with mesh cupholders in each arm. There are more than 10 colors to choose from, so you can pick the best fit for your company’s picnic. These chairs also have a carrying bag equipped with drawstring for easy travel.
The sun is often the enemy hot summer picnics. What better way to combat the sun’s brightness than a pair of custom aviator sunglasses? These provide a unique style and excellent eye protection. They’re also lightweight and comfortable to wear. Choose from 3 different frame colors.
Corporate Swag refers to the trade show giveaways a person receives for walking aisle after aisle in a conference center looking at the wares and services of the vendors. What makes for good Corporate Swag? Does item functionality reign supreme, or can a creative, unique design transform an otherwise regular item into marketing gold? Personally, I think that both functionality and design can make Promotional Products that will be spared the trash bin.
Let’s look at what functional means when it comes to Promotional Stuff. Functional is something I can incorporate into my day regardless of the logo or corporate saying. However, if the trade show giveaways are an article of clothing, the artwork really needs to grab my attention, or be odd or quirky. A double meaning for a saying is fun on a promotional company t-shirt. Uninspired artwork is not.
When a company takes the time and effort to design artwork that represents the industry and the featured event well, I could argue that whatever the Promotional Stuff is, the company will be positively remembered. Even inconsequential artwork can have a big advertising impact.
Promotional company backpacks and custom duffel bags often are Custom Promotional Items given away at a trade show. I really like to receive these types of Promotional Stuff, especially when it is well made. One of the worst mistakes a company can make is to hand out badly made items. I would equate the cheapness of the product with bad quality control of the company whose name is on the gift.
Another bane of Corporate Swag is handing out old technology. If the Promotional Products that are given out are company logo USB and promotional thumb drives, make sure they are made with the latest technology. If I put the drive into my USB and it can’t be read, or there is little storage capacity, I again will look with question on the company whose logo is stamped on the casing.
Other Custom Promotional Items that are common novelty items are blinking noise making balls or yo-yos. While neither of these items are very useful, they are fun. My dog loves the balls; my cats hate them. A custom yo-yo is fun if you know how to run one. My dogs love them if they are thrown, and my cats love the string.
Bottom-line, quality swag is made up of two parts; useful, quality products and creative design. It’s important to always order from a quality manufacturer. Remember that your promotional swag is a reflection on your company, and in the mind of the consumer, a poorly made item is usually associated with poor business. But just as important is the use of quality artwork. A promotional backpack with a poor design can be outdone by something as simple as a company shirt with a unique, creative look. So, always try to achieve a balance of the two.
Quick response codes (QR) are flat little squares of black and white dots that are cropping up across the mobile marketing field. Smartphone users simply snap a photo of these dots and a QR code reader app connects to an Internet landing page, revealing a world of useful information. For those who market with promotional products, QR codes could be the most prescient, agile and robust way to appeal to the burgeoning mobile market.
The growing trend toward QR codes for marketing is already well established in Japan, where 25% of shopping takes place on mobile devices. The US market has been slower to catch on to the QR trend, but forward-thinking marketers are beginning to sit up and take notice. Promotional products are the perfect platform for quick response technology. A QR code reader app can make a product perform all sorts of Internet tricks that can keep consumers entertained and engaged for years to come.
The ways advertisers are able to use QR codes for marketing is limited only by imagination. These little black and white dynamos are more than just two-dimensional barcodes, they can really pack a marketing wallop. They can be stamped on almost any flat surface or digital location, and linked to all sorts of Internet destinations, from functional to frivolous. Landing pages can include product information, reviews, discount coupons, online shopping pages, social media platforms, music, videos, games, surveys, polls, and much more.
One really innovative way to use QR on promotional products is to embellish the code itself with a graphic or message. The codes are made up of black and white patterns that can only be read by a QR code reader app, but unused areas in the code’s design may be crafted into a simple picture or words. This is even more reason to put QR codes on promotional products.
Clearly the trend toward consumer use of QR technology is growing quickly and the mobile movement shows no sign of slowing anytime soon. Using QR codes to market promotional products is simply a smart business move. Advertisers can start by learning more ways for marketers to use QR codes creatively.

A truly great promotional item is one that works well and will be used often, building goodwill with every use. With summer grilling season in full swing, now is the perfect time to distribute promotional grilling items imprinted with your company’s logo. Customers will be excited to receive high-quality custom grilling kits or custom spatulas for free, far more so than if they received a pen or a magnet. The positive associations with your company will then be reinforced every time they fire up the grill for summer fun.
The best promotional grilling items are ones that are going to be used frequently and kept close to hand at the grill. Items like digital grilling forks and lighted bamboo spatulas are perfect multipurpose grilling tools that can easily find a place in any home grill master’s toolbox. Custom spatulas with logos are unusual and distinctive, so you don’t need to worry about your promotion blending into the crowd. The lighted bamboo spatula is an especially clever promotional item because it is a conversation piece in itself. Many cooks won’t have seen a spatula that lights up for evening grilling before, making your item even more noticeable and unique. Digital grilling forks allow for quick temperature checks throughout the grilling process, and will keep your company’s logo right next to the grill on the handsome carrying case.
For a truly memorable promotional gift, custom grilling kits are unbeatable. With all the most essential grilling tools in a single sturdy case, this is an item that will not only be used at home, but for camping, tailgating, or any grilling opportunity. Your 8″x3″ logo on the case will be clearly visible to everyone who assists in the grilling process, and the rugged, professional grade kit is sure to stand up to season after season of use. No matter what items you choose, though, you can’t go wrong with promotional grilling gifts this summer.
It’s that magical time of year again! Freshly cut grass, white paint on the ground, shoulder pads crushing into one another, Friday night games, and the pound of the snare drum during half time herald in the sound of football season. Make this Fall season your time shine by using America’s greatest game to market your brand.
1) Booster Clubs
Most High School football teams have a booster club. Get on board by sponsoring a local organization that supports fun and educational programs for students. Contact their leader to investigate what the booster club needs and how you can help them offset the costs for the parents.
2) Sponsor a Little League team
Youngsters are learning how to play the game, and countless communities across America have several teams looking for sponsors. Imagine 20 kids wearing your company logo every weekend through November, that’s a great opportunity for community involvement and raising brand awareness, not to mention the parents knowing the good deed you did.
Before the Friday night lights come on, there’s fun to be had in the parking lot. Hosting a tailgate with food, drinks, and giveaways for fans is fine opportunity to put your logo in the hands and minds of your potential customers.
Everybody loves FREE stuff! Think like a fan this Fall and imagine what you might want/need for a game. You may consider warm knit caps, insulated mugs for hot chocolate, water bottles to keep cool, the ever-popular Kan-Tastic, or something else unique and useful. Provide something of value to your potential customers/clients and let them know that you care about their positive experience.
5) The Terrible Towel
Support your local teams by distributing sports towels with both the team and your logos! Nothing intimidates the other team like a furious wave of fans having fun and spinning a distracting wave of towels over their heads!
