The power of the right promotional product mix
Remarkably, many companies use promotional products purely out of habit or because ‘everyone else is doing it.’
With promotional products, we believe they must add value to your products and services. Handing out mints at a trade show won’t generate product interest, create a memorable outcome or drive profits!
Of course, your mix will be dependent on what your company does (and offers) and what you are hoping to achieve. While a high-end car company may invest in cutting edge video brochures for qualified prospects, a small business may secure great interest from strategically designed and placed banner with great and engaging content to pull in the audience.
From stand branding to promotional items, getting the mix right will ensure you are not only seen, but remembered.
Elements we consider
Strategy example: Display banners
While placement in high traffic areas is ideal, display stands may not secure the impact you seek if the design doesn’t engage. Remember, you only have a few seconds to capture your audience. From an easy to read content font, to appropriate colour selection and layout – the overall design is critical to banner success.
Four words apply. Clear. Concise. Relevant. Engaging. You passing audience has little time to read or indeed digest, great swaths of text. Your content needs to be instantly on the mark and provide an engaging and enticing message that creates a call-to-action.
As noted, long meandering text won’t engage and may even put off your target audience. Relevant information – directly related to the event / product / service – will secure immediate interest.
Call to action
As with any successful promotional tool, a strong call to action is needed. An imperative to act can be made through time pressure (limited time / limited number) to encourage immediate action.
Amazingly, many display stands fail to include contact details. Including key contact details such as website / phone etc., ensures contact can be made quickly.
As important as all points above, if your display stand isn’t prominently located it will lose all impact. Knowing where you audience will be (or will most likely travel past), will ensure they see your stand.
