Leave Promotional Pens Behind After Client Visits

What is the best way to ensure that a prospect or client does not forget you? Leave something behind after paying an in-person visit! Promotional pens are the ideal leave-behind items because recipients will use them every day. Each time they pick up these writing instruments, recipients will think about whether it is time to give your business a call.

The Power of the Pen

Some promotional items are attractive but relatively useless. The pen is not one of these because it serves multiple purposes within a professional environment. It can be used to take notes in meetings, mark up corporate presentations, or sketch ideas for new product designs. Even the computer revolution has not managed to make pens obsolete. Many people would rather jot a note on a piece of paper with a pen than add it to their computer or smartphone calendar.

School-age children, retirees, and most people in between have use for a pen. People carry these writing utensils in a handbag, backpack, briefcase, and even their pockets. Each time they use these imprinted promotional products, others take notice of the featured company name and logo, increasing corporate visibility.

Pens: The Inexpensive Promotions

Very few promotional items for business advertising cost less than one dollar per piece. Pens do and they come in a variety of styles and colors. Companies can find pens in primary and pastel colors, styles featuring finger grips, and versions that are refillable so they can advertise the business indefinitely. There are even pens that serve double duty as highlighters.

Almost any business can afford to add promotional pens to its marketing arsenal. These writing instruments will always be well-received so leave them behind after visiting a client or prospect. In the days that follow, you may receive a call or email from that individual, expanding the relationship into something very lucrative.

Say It A Different Way With Promotional Hats

Promotional pens, stress balls, and mugs are products that companies have traditionally used for advertising purposes. These effectively make a business more visible in the marketplace but some companies are looking for a different way to promote themselves. Offering promotional hats that turn their prospects and customers into walking advertisements is one effective method.

Types of Promotional Headwear

Different kinds of hats can be imprinted or embroidered with a company name or logo. Toques are warm and form-fitting, perfect for fall and winter weather. This lightweight acrylic rib knit headwear can be embroidered in one location so the company name stands front and center on the head. Brim toques are very stylish and provide some protection from the sun.

Brushed cotton caps are popular headwear that comes in different styles and colors. A two-tone cap features different colors on the brim and cap. The fabric strap and buckle allow the wearer to adjust the size to fit the head. Heavy cotton caps are durable enough to withstand years of wear, even by the most active prospects and customers.

Hats Go Foldable

Promotional items for the head even come in foldable styles. Bandanas are perfect for warm weather, keeping the hair off the face without causing the head to sweat. Businesses can have these direct screen imprinted in up to eight colors. Short knit beanies are small enough to fit into a jeans pocket and come in a rainbow of colors awaiting embroidery of the corporate logo or name.

The sun hat is the ultimate in foldable promotional hats. It measures 15 inches and features a wide brim to keep sun out of the eyes. Companies have their imprints made on the front of the hat for all to view. For a small extra charge, they can order imprinted pouches that serve as promotional products while compactly storing the hats.

Promotional Items For Back-To-School

As grade school and college students settle into the routine of a new school year, many find themselves lacking the tools they need to succeed. They may have stocked up on pencils and pens but forgotten a calculator or ruler. Those who spend countless hours doing their homework on a computer quickly realize that a mouse pad would make things more comfortable. These are just some of the promotional items a business can offer to prospects and customers who are in school.

Reasons to Promote Using School Products

Many companies overlook the school-age population when considering which promotional products to offer. These days, more adults are going back to school to increase their marketability or learn a new career. Therefore, there are plenty of different products to offer to prospects and customers who are also students.

A business benefits from this effort when it customizes the item with the company name and logo. The product becomes promotional in nature, advertising the company to all who see it. This branding can have a huge impact on sales because it turns the company into a household name that consumers come to rely upon and trust.

School Tools With a Promotional Angle

Everything from promotional pens to custom USB drives are useful to students. A tech-savvy student will love a tiny logoed mouse, mouse pad, and a calculator that fits into a pocket. Those who are more traditional prefer padfolios, memo pads, and sticky notes. All students will use rulers, erasers, pens, and highlighters.

Companies can even begin preparing for customer graduations by ordering promotional items like executive pens and pen and pencil gift sets. Students will use these proudly when they head into the world to begin their new lives. They will always remember the company that acknowledged their educational achievement, making them more likely to remain loyal.
