When weighing promotional products as part of your marketing strategy, it makes sense to compare them to other types of media. According to a 2010 worldwide research study completed by the Ad Specialty Institute (ASI), here’s how they compare.
Promotional products differ from other media in another important aspect. Rather than broadcast out without a personal interaction, they are typically given directly to the recipient either at a sales meeting, trade show or via a dimensional mail piece, making receipt of these items connected to a personal experience. Items that fills a useful purpose also have the highest perceived value.
Good quality and attractive calendar products are among the best at achieving a low cost per impression and high perceived value among all categories of promotional products. While some marketers may dismiss using calendars in the smart phone digital age, your would be hard-pressed to find clients that have no form of physical calendar in their environment.
