When was the last time you said thank you to your customers? Whilst a phone call or email would be nice, a well chosen quality promotional gift is an even better way to show your appreciation. A little gift can go a long way, and as a recent survey found: '71% of those surveyed could name the company that had presented them with the item, suggesting that repeat exposure to an item that is used on a regular basis is remembered'.
So not only can branded gifts make a nice treat but they also keep your business in the recipients mind long after the initial excited unwrapping!
If you've got a product or service that could help people out over the festive season, send out your marketing material and promotional gifts now! Whilst it might seem a little premature, hitting your prospects today will leave a good few weeks for your message to really sink in, then come the Christmas rush when they are too busy to even Google search a company, who will they turn to first? You of course!

Industry research has shown that people favour useful promotional items over novelty items, and that useful gifts are therefore kept the longest.
Researchers at the University of Reading's Centre of Advanced Microscopy have found the average ballpoint pen can write 900 metres or:
• 6207 signatures
• 5114 phone numbers
• 971 Christmas cards
• 169 letters
So if your branded pen became a favourite, just think how much brand exposure you would gain over the life of 1 little pen! Now that really is something to write home about ... (sorry!)

With many people taking their annual holiday in the sun or spending some quality time with family and loved ones at home, August is traditionally a slightly slower month. But how do you keep up your marketing momentum during the really busy times? Someone may not need your services right now, but if you are delivering a consistent marketing message all year round, then it is more likely you'll be at the forefront of their mind when they unexpectedly do.
Promotional merchandise is a great way to keep your brand out there and in people's minds so that when they do need you, you are the go-to choice. Offering unrivalled brand exposure for one initial outlay, quality promotional items are kept for an average of 1½ to 2 years! Can you think of any other marketing tool that offers so much for so little?
Although we are still very much in the holiday season, now is the time to be planning your marketing activities through to the end of 2013. As you work through your plans, take time to consider where promotional products could be used to really get your message across and maintain momentum whilst you are busy looking after your customers.
