Miami, FL, United States, 2007/04/19 - In honor of Small Business Week, Benison Int'l Group, the one-stop office solutions & promotional products resource at benisoninternational.com, is sharing the top 5 steps necessary for picking the best promotional products to increase sales.
“In a recent study by the Promotional Products Association International, 76.1% of the people who received promotional products in the past 12 months recalled the advertiser’s name on the product and 52% of the respondents did business with the advertiser after receiving the product,” says Michael Lara, Benison CEO.
“With this in mind, we wanted to share some of the key factors in finding and purchasing the right promotional items to help small business owners use this proven marketing tool to successfully increase customer traffic and sales.”
To find the perfect promotional items for your small business, follow these five, key steps:
1. Choose your marketing message
Before ordering any promotional items, it is necessary to figure out the message you want to convey. After all, potential customers will view this item as an extension of your company’s image, products and services.
2. Conduct research
Review information from several providers. Get referrals from business associates and check with the Promotional Products Association International, Better Business Bureau, and other local organizations to ensure you’ll be working with a credible company.
3. Demand service
Promotional products make up an $18 billion dollar industry so there is a lot of competition for your business. Don’t settle for anything less than a company that provides high-quality products and services, meets deadlines, and caters to your individual needs.
4. Be creative
Although you may be inclined to choose top sellers such as t-shirts, hats, pens, calendars, or other office equipment, there are many other options. With today’s technology, you can create your own products and have your logo and unique information added to them cost-effectively.
5. Review responses
After you distribute a promotional product, check to see if it has an impact on website traffic, customer inquiries or actual sales. Ask members of your targeted audience what they think of the products and make changes if necessary.
Studies have shown that small businesses can significantly increase sales with the right promotional products. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be able to reap the benefits!
