Michigan State University Uses Promotional Products to Aid Attendance

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

“I wanted to get free stuff.” - A Quote from a MSU Student Regarding Promotional Items While Attending a University Festival for Local Businesses and College Students

Michigan State University knows how influential promotional products are.  Each year, the university holds it annual “U-Fest’ which brings students and local businesses together through none other than promotional items.

When asked why she attended, one MSU student simply replied, “I wanted to get free stuff.”

What a powerful statement if you’re a company looking to expand your presence beyond your traditional advertising.

The university has hosted this festival for 32 years and its popularity allows it to continue each year because of that “free stuff.”

In previous blog posts, we’ve touched on how savvy companies are making sure to target their promotional marketing campaigns towards the impressionable college student.  College is around the time when young adults begin to recognize their own voice and step outside of their parent’s thought process in terms of buying and consumption.

A free promotional tote bag, or promotional calendar, and of course, promotional pens and pencils, are widely used by college students who are on modest budgets and can’t afford book store pricing for most of these items.  A company logo is not going to deter a college student from using a useful item in their every day life.  And it’s only going to create a memorable impression when it comes time to consume.

If you’re an up-and-coming company and you want to make the most of your first promotional products campaign, start with your local colleges and universities.  Superior Promos can help you build the perfect promotional products campaign to be used on college campuses across the nation.

How did I get this promotional product?

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

In today’s economy, promotional products are used even more by companies looking to create added exposure for their brand.  I didn’t realize how apparent this was until recently when I randomly started receiving promotional products in the mail.

The first promotional product I received was a promotional white ceramic coffee mug from my favorite news article resource.  Keep in mind, I don’t pay a subscription for this site.  All they require for membership is to provide your address and e-mail.  Since I love to read news from this site while drinking my morning coffee, the promotional mug worked out perfectly.  I wrote about this recently, but this is another example of giving your audience something they would use.  And yes, I’m using it.

The second promotional product I received was a customized tote bag from a ticket broker that I bought tickets from recently.  Like the promotional mug, I had no idea this would be sent to me, but I again found this item useful.  This ticket broker is an up and coming place to buy tickets so I appreciated their effort in retaining my interest.  They will most certainly retain my business given their appreciation for me using their service.

These are just some more every day examples of how common and effective promotional products are for your business.  And, as a consumer, don’t hesitate to fill out secure forms when purchasing something online or signing up for a service. You never know what you might get in your mail.
