Recent Iowa Law Exempts Promotional Products From Ban

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Throughout this blog, we’ve covered the significant impact of promotional products and gifts within particular industries — especially the health care industry.  Recently, we covered the affect promotional items have on medical students as well as the recent limitations imposed on promotional products by medical associations.  The State of Iowa recently just passed a law banning gifts to Doctors from pharmaceutical companies.  Kickbacks like tickets, meals, and travel packages are no longer allowed under the terms of this legislation.

However, the key element of this law is the exemption of promotional gifts meaning pharmaceutical companies can still impact Doctor’s decision with promotional products like promotional pens and notepads. This is obviously a victory for pharmaceutical companies and is ”better than nothing.”

At Superior Promos, we will continue to follow these news stories as they depict just how powerful promotional products are on people.  While we don’t support the use of promotional items in effort to impact Doctor’s decisions, we stand by these type of promotions for nearly all industries that want to create further brand recognition and awareness.  To make an impact on your potential customers, contact us today.

People Really Collect Promotional Pens? Yes, Really.

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Apparently, promotional pens can impact someone well beyond what we thought.  Santiago Garcia from Spain has collected upwards of 25,000 promotional pens since 1988. The collection started with a pen in the shape of a screwdriver from a local pub.  Garcia liked the pen so much he made sure to store it away in a drawer.  Soon, the drawer became full and now the collection has expanded to the drawers of his home’s spare rooms.  The promotional pens are organized in each drawer with many on display in his office.

Want to add to Santiago’s collection?  View our selection of promotional pens and let Superior Promos customize your business’ promotional pen.

Promotional Products Give The Ultimate First Impression

Friday, May 29th, 2009

When new companies enter a particular marketplace, creating a first impression is often a challenge especially when there are other companies putting out a similar product or service.  Many companies throw salesmen out into the trenches looking to attract prospective clients using passion and enthusiasm as a means to open doors. While there’s nothing wrong with that particular approach, it can often be unsuccessful.  To compliment these efforts, a sales pitch must bring something else to the table.  A promotional product is that ultimate compliment.

Instead of the salesman making the pitch, the promotional item makes the pitch.  The recipient takes interest first and foremost in the product he or she is receiving as it might be quite useful to them. They’re also absorbing your brand and logo in the process.  Once the promotional product has appealed to the person, then the human to human sales pitch can begin more naturally.  As a result of this promotional product giveaway, the recipient leaves the interaction with not only something useful, but something to associate with whom they met from your company.

As always, the product you choose plays an important part in this whole process.  You must give something useful and appealing to the senses. USB flash drivestote bags and even a wine tote bag really make a giveaway standout among the rest.

Promotional Items and Their Impact on Doctors

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Interesting blog post over at regarding the effect of promotional products such as promotional pens and mugs on Doctor’s prescription writing habits.

According to a study in The Archives of Internal Medicine, medical school students felt more inclined to write a prescription for a drug they had seen on a promotional gift (e.g. promotional coffee mug, promotional pen)  in comparison to students at medical schools where promotional products for Doctors were banned.

According to Beth Janicek of Injury Board, “The researchers worked with 352 third- and fourth-year students at Penn, which bans gifts, samples, etc. from drug companies, and the University of Miami, which allows them. When researchers sought to influence the student unconsciously, they found that the fourth year students at Miami showed strong positive feelings for the drug.”

The study summarizes how impactful the effect of  branding can be.  While promotional gifts in the healthcare industry can raise a lot of ethical questions, it goes to show how effective promotional items can be for your business.
