    Are custom sticky notes a good promotional product giveaway?

    Sticky notes are one of the most popular promotional products. They were popularized by the name brand “post-it notes”. They are useful and can be bundled with many other items. The most popular being personalized pens. Sticky notes come in many different shapes, sizes, styles (custom sticky tape flags) and sheet counts. Since they are stationary, printing in full color is more economical than most other substrates in the promo industry.

    Industries that use sticky notes are typically in an office setting; schools, brick and mortar businesses, medical professions, daycares, law firms, non-profits, dealerships and more.

    All jokes aside, nothing is wrong with writing notes on paper.  It's quick and easy and at times all that is necessary.

    0 Why use blue ink promotional pens?

    Blue Ink Pens Blog Image

    The answer is easier than one might think.  One might think since all attorneys prefer blue ink cartridges in their pens for signing legal documents that it is required by law.  You will be happy to know that is not the case. Yes, the contract you just signed in crayon will still hold up in court.

    The main reason blue ink is used is so that it is easy to decipher between photocopies and the original document.  This helps to ensure that when copies are being passed out, the original is not given away in the mix.  The quality of the ink does not really play a huge role although you do want the signatures to be clean and legible however, most attorneys use a higher quality pen when signing documents to avoid any issues and to have a smooth writing experience.  When ordering blue ink promotional pens to advertise their firm, they typically do not use a high-end executive pen.  Some attorneys allow clients to keep their pens to spread their brand as well as portray professionalism.  A popular middle of the road blue ink promotional pen that writes great is the Bic Grip Roller Pens.  Unless you have very deep pockets and can afford to hand out collectors pens or even executive pens as promos, the cheaper alternatives are the way to go.

    Another purpose attorneys use blue ink when signing documents is to easily decipher between the black type on the page and the signatures and dates.  While there is no need to sign in blood to make a contract legally binding, there is a need to be able to see if the contract is signed clearly.  Back to red…  Why not use red ink?  Well because it is literally too much like blood or a bad grade on a school paper.  It has negative connotations.

    The most popular blue ink promo pens are the InkJoy pens by Paper Mate. InkJoy revolutionizes the writing experience by combining the best qualities of ballpoint and gel pen technologies. InkJoy offers vivid colors, incredible smoothness and a fast dry-time to help avoid messy smearing. A wide variety of colors give you maximum flexibility. InkJoy is the synthesis of the functional and the emotional. When you pick up this pen, it is not just how it writes . . . but how the pen makes you feel when you write.

    Companies with unhappy employees have a problem. Ideally everyone on your team is on the same page and after the same mission for the organization. Realistically, that is not usually the case.

    0 Why You Should Advertise With Promotional Products and Promotional Pens
    There is nothing like promotional products when it comes to marketing and growing your company. They draw attention from new clients, increase brand awareness, and retain old clients, like no other form of marketing out there.

    Everyone knows that running a business is not cheap. We also know that you have to spend money to make money. The question everyone doesn't know the answer to, is what should be spending our money on? What are the things I can do, that will make me more money? This can get overwhelming. The answer is really quite simple, use promotional products. Promotional pens are the number one promotional item.

    Time and time again, the research has shown that they are effective. They will make you money, they will reach a huge audience and they take very little work on your behalf. They are truly a one stop shop for your advertising campaign. This means, you've got more time for other important things!

    If you still aren't sure how they work or why, I have a few things listed, that promotional products do for your company. Please check them out!

    1.) Starting the conversation/relationship
    This one is really simple. Give and you shall receive. Typically when someone receives a gift from you, they feel thankful. They feel special and they know you want to communicate with them. They know you are taking time to recognize them. Receiving a promotional product is very likely to induce a feeling of them wanting to return the favor and do business with you.
    One study found that 52% of people, who receive a promotional product, result in doing business with that company. The remaining 48% said that would be more likely to choose that company for their future business. This is all because of a kind gift!
    If you are giving these out in person, it is a great way to have something to talk about with them.

    2.) They get you noticed
    Promotional products will grab anyone's attention, no matter where they are at. A great place is a trade show. It can be hard to be the most popular booth. Giving things away for FREE is very powerful. People will come running. When they see people with your hats on, they are going to come from across the conventions center, just to get one. You know they will lose a pen, when they see the promotional pens your both is giving away, they are sure to pay you a visit.
    One study found that trade-show booths saw a 176% traffic increase, when they used promotional products.That is huge!

    3.) You keep getting your monies worth, again and again
    Let's say you run a commercial or ad in the newspaper. How long do those last? Even billboards are costly to run for months on end. When you give out promotional products, they literally seem to last forever. This one is easy to prove, open up your center console, your desk drawer or look in your purse. I bet you are loaded down with items you have had for years. These people paid one time and their message is still reaching consumers. Not to mention, when they get passed from person to person, they reach lots of different people. That is pretty amazing.

    Random business travelers were interviewed at a variety of airports across the country. In this study, 71% of the participants said they had received a promotional product sometime in the last 12 months. 33% of those same participants had that product with them.
    These items stick around and keep doing their job, for years to come.

    4.) Branding
    Branding your company takes exposure to the brand name, slogan and logo over and over again. Think of the companies you remember and how many times you see their name thrown out there. Advertising over and over is the main way people will remember you.
    I found another study that said 39% of all people who have received a promotional product in the last 6 months can remember the name of the company on that product. That is pretty remarkable.

    5.) Reaching a larger audience
    Promotional products, easily reach a much larger audience than other methods of advertising. They can be seen by so many people day in and day out. You aren't just reaching one group of people. For example, promotional pens are always traveling from person to person. They are passed around at restaurants, grocery stores, offices, churches and much more. This means your message is reaching a huge number of people, for years and years.

    6.) Creating a positive image
    It's been said that 70% of people who received promotional products, actually remember the message. Odds are they have a positive image of you, if nothing else, simply because of your kind gift.
    7.) People will give away, YOUR give away gifts!

    In most cases, giving someone a gift you received is considered rude. In the case of promotional products, it is greatly appreciated! You can be people will loan someone your promotional pens and say "oh you can just keep it". This is what makes these items have amazing results! The more people your products reach, the more it drives your cost per impression down... which is exactly what you want!
    Here's another tad bit of info; 62% of people who have a promotional item will pass it on to someone else, rather than toss it in the trash! Thank you for helping!

    9.) Making money
    Isn't it simple? One pen can bring you your largest customer! It has happened time and again. This means, you make money!

    Hopefully this is enough to answer some of your questions, about advertising with promotional products. What are you waiting for? Time to get yours out there and start seeing the largest ROI you have seen yet!
