Promotional USB memory sticks have been around for a few years now but compared to imprinted pens and tote bags they’re relatively new business promotional items. Companies are only starting to unlock the full potential of imprinted flash drives for promotion and branding. Why choose promotional USB flesh drives over business promotional products with a longer pedigree? Let’s look at three ways in which imprinted promotional USB memory sticks stand out compared to the alternatives.
Internal/External Use: Flash sticks are now the standard in casual, portable memory storage. They’ve replaced the role once held by 3.5 inch floppy disks. That’s why they’re useful business promotional items – and that usefulness applies inside an organization as well as with customers, clients and promotional contacts. If your company runs a significantly-sized office, purchasing bulk promotional USB provides needed portable memory at excellent prices – usually better than just buying from a local supplier at need. This means that one order can take care of practical office needs and external promotions, all while providing consistent branding in both situations.
Multimedia Potential: As a gift, imprinted flash memory is a handy gift to share with clients and professional contacts, but promotional USB memory can provide more than just empty storage. Load promotional material on to each stick to give it extra value. This is already commonplace in the music industry, where artists and record labels load songs, videos and even entire albums onto flash memory to distribute to reviewers and fans alike. You might add electronic coupons, offline web pages, video, sound, and slide presentations – anything you can store digitally, as long as you have the room.
Excellent for Trade Shows and Conference: Promotional USB memory is an increasingly common part of the standard kit you’ll get at industry trade shows and professional conferences. If you have the opportunity to contribute to a gift package for a conference, adding a promotional USB stick will have at least as much impact as providing and imprinted pen or notebook. USB memory makes an excellent general trade show giveaway if your company rents a booth at a convention. Promotional USB memory isn’t the kind of thing people throw away, giving it lasting value as a business promotional item.
As flash memory prices continue to drop, the potential for promotional USB memory will only increase. You’ll be able to load larger files, get it in more interesting shapes and sizes, and make larger bulk orders for less.
