Hot Promotional Product Trends for Q4 2013

Hot Promotional Product Trends for Q4
Pick a promotion that will make a bang with your customers and employees by putting your logo on hip, hot, and trendy promotional products! Use these emerging trends to engage your customers and maximize the impressions and lifespan of your incentive or giveaway:

Luxe: Glittery materials, glossy patent-leatherette finishes, big buckles, shiny visible rivets, rhinestones and sequins, and bold patterns are all elements of luxe fashion accessories, like this ultra-glam tote bag. Ideal imprints vary from simple and elegant to big and bold, and they will all appeal to your female customers aged X-Y.

Simple Complexity: Lifestyle pieces that just "look" basic - simple and unaggressive product silhouettes hide technical features and complexity, like on this neoprene computer portfolio. Add an unimposing imprint and these items will get frequent use among young professionals.

Why Give Gifts to Customers and Employees?

Why Give Gifts?

Despite a recovering economy, businesses around the country are challenged to do more with less. Business gifts might look like an unnecessary expense, but they are an investment in your business that pays
big dividends in employee morale, employee retention, and customer loyalty!

Employee Gifts: Numerous studies, including those conducted by "Inc." and by Gallup have shown that, time and again, employees are more motivated by tangible gifts as a reward than cash, dollar for dollar. For maximum value, consider tangible items that create an emotional response like a food gift. Creating an incentive program is another effective way to motivate employees to achieve above-and-beyond performance in sales, safety, or any other clearly defined and measurable metric.
Customer Gifts: The old adage is still true - it is much more expensive to add customers than it is to keep them. Thoughtful and personalized gifts are proven to increase customer loyalty, making them more valuable to you in longevity, purchase frequency, and average margin per transaction. Want to maximize your value? Combine two marketing channels! Create an offer via Facebook or your website for customers to refer you to a friend in exchange for a branded apparel or lifestyle item. Showing customers the incentive and creating a clear call-to-action has been shown to be 4 times more effective to create referrals and recommendations than simply asking for a referral - combining it with social media increases your generational appeal and can increase your reach when your campaign goes viral!
