Promotional Items to Drop, And How to Substitute Them

Just Say ‘No’ To the Poncho

The ’80s Called, They Need Their Fanny Packs

While it may be difficult for most people to grasp, fanny packs remain a thing. Sure these “belly bags” can be useful in a variety of predicaments, but people just are not wearing them nowadays. As an alternative, go for drawstring bags. They provide extra space, serve the same promotional purpose, and do not make people appear like they are in a video with Rick Astley.

Replace the Promotional Pen

There are a number of reasons to like providing promtional branded pens as a “freebie” to customers. If this was not the case, 50 percent of people would not have acquired one during the year. As it turns out, though, the world is starting to become more digital and pens are simply getting used less.

To attempt to counter this, start supplying promotional pens with a stylus on the end. Even if people are using pens less, the writing utensil will be handy from time to time. And since all people like having a stylus for their mobile device, it will be your pen they use.

It Is Raining Ponchos… Make it Stop

A poncho could appear like a best promotional product that really helps people out. Even though this is true, the fact remains that people are still getting half their bodies drenched and only thinking of a local business once it starts raining. Alternatively, get promotional umbrellas. They’re more pricey, but they last longer than ponchos. This makes a promotional umbrella a long term marketing investment.

Promotional products will invariably possess a place in marketing. Just be sure you’re not using antiquated products in a modern world.
