Everybody wants free stuff, right? Well, sort of. Handing out promotional products (items printed with your logo) is a staple element of most marketing campaigns. The success or failure of your promotion depends, heavily, on presentation. To create a memorable brand, you must gain and retain interest from your target audience.
IT'S ABOUT PRESENTATION: Most companies, large or small alike, use promotional products printed with their logo and/or message to brand their company and make an impression. It’s simple and can be highly effective. Hand out free t-shirts with your logo and you’ll probably hear “thanks” as they walk away, stuffing the printed t-shirt into a bag. However, with the same products and a creative presentation, you can create intense demand for your message.
SHOOT YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE: Shoot those same custom t-shirts out of an air cannon or oversized slingshot and people with climb over each other for them. Afterwards, they’ll wear them as a badge of honor showing they “won” the scramble, proudly displaying your logo and message, even showing it off, to the jealous bystanders and anyone who will look. These promotions work consistently at sporting events, parades, nightclubs, concerts, college campuses, and anywhere with an energetic crowd. Custom printed t-shirts, mini plastic footballs, anything that can be safely tossed or launched into a crowd can create this effect.
DEMAND ATTENTION: In any marketing strategy, you’re trying to draw attention to your message. To demand attention, you must differentiate your presentation. Whether you use an air cannon, dress in a costume, raffle off the items, gift-wrap them, award them only to people wearing red, or distribute your logo items another unique way, the presentation of your promotional products can easily set your brand apart and demand attention.
MAINTAIN DEMAND FOR YOUR BRAND: In order to get your message to really sink in, you must repeat it. If you present your promotion once, it impacts everyone who experiences it first-hand. If you show up to every home game for your local team with your air cannon, it will not take long before word of mouth spreads about the company shooting free stuff with your message to the crowds. Your brand will quickly become recognizable and sought after to a much greater audience. If done consistently, your brand will remain popular, recognizable and unforgettable for years to come by even those never even experienced your promotion first-hand. With a little focus on presentation, you can create real demand for your message, the goal of any marketing effort.
