How Does That Mouse Pad, Pen, or Coffee Cup Help My Business?
• You may not think that promotional items do much to increase your business but, they actually do and in a down economy such as this they can actually increase your business more than you know. Think of it this way. Most people are surviving on a very limited budget and feel that they are taken advantage of by the government and business as well. Then along comes a business that gives you something for free as a small thank you for doing business with them or simply visiting their business. Suddenly in that customers eyes that promotional item becomes something of value because it was unexpected and to them a thoughtful gesture. If the promotional item is something that they can use, no matter how small that item may be, it is all the more valuable.
• So, then the next time they need that product you sell or that service you provide they are much more likely to remember that gift and take their business to you rather than your competitor even if they could get that product or service slightly cheaper at the other business. So, in that way those promotional items cement customer loyalty to your business and keep those customers coming back again and again.
• However, the value of that promotional item to your business doesnt stop there. Your now loyal customers are bound to tell their friends and relatives about your business and at least some of them are going to become new customers. Then when you next offer promotional items they too will feel more like valued customers and tell their friends and family and so on and so.
• In an economy where everything costs more and more, getting that free promotional item means more and more. Whether that promotional item is a mouse pad, a pen, a door mat, or a food item doesnt matter, what matters to that customer is that your business was willing to go that extra little bit and reward that customer for spending their money on your products or services.
• So before you decide that the budget for those promotional items should go in order to save you money and allow you to make a bigger profit, weigh the cost of those promotional items against the potential business you can gain from keeping them. And then ask yourself, “Is my competition giving away promotional items that are going to win over some of my customers?”
