A Unique Promotional Product Campaign

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

Recently, a client asked what was one of the more unique promotional item campaigns we’ve developed.  The client just wanted an example of some out-of-the-box thinking.  I thought this was an excellent question because most people tend to go with promotional items that are most popular.

In this case, I pondered the question for a little bit, and then remembered a campaign where a company wanted to attract veterinarians to their trade show booth.  I recommended this item, and they absolutely adored it.  Not only is this promotional item useful in veterinary offices, but it captures the attention of the target  market (veterinarians).

At Superior Promos, our promotional product selection is so extensive that we can create a campaign for almost any specific market.  Of course we’re fond of the classics like promotional mugs, pens etc. but a thoughtful and unique approach can really pay dividends for your promotional item campaign.

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.

Use Promotional Products To Keep Your Employees Happy

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

“We are on the verge of an imminent global talent crisis,” warns Christie Gibbons, executive director of Recognition Professionals International (RPI), formerly known as the National Association for Employee Recognition. “In the next 10 years, we will see a glut of people retiring. With this brain trust walking out the door, companies need to know how to retain talent.”

Scary, isn’t it?  We’ve all been in situations as young professionals where we wanted to feel appreciated by our higher-ups in more ways than just pay.  It’s quite rewarding when others recognize a job well done and show their appreciation.  Unfortunately, this concept can be quite foreign to many companies and their management teams.

Creatively rewarding employees with promotional products can contribute to the following:

Increased Effort - People tend to work harder when there’s an incentive on the line.  As a result, their effort will increase and productivity will go up.  Quality of work is usually much better as well.

Morale Boost - Rewards create a happier employee and workforce.  Group rewards can eliminate the friendly competition that occurs if it was just one person on the receiving end.

Company Loyalty - Keeping your employees happy with promotional products will increase your company’s odds of retaining your top employees from leaving for other opportunities where they might feel more appreciated.  I think we’ve all heard the same stories about someone leaving a company for another opportunity or to start their own company because they didn’t feel appreciated.  Promotional products can prevent that story from happening with your company.
