Did you know there is data that supports the idea that promotional products work? It’s true. In a case study conducted by the American Marketing Association, it was reported that promotional products like custom baseball hats, t-shirts and pens have a high reach and potential for top-of-mind recall; they also reported that these products are an excellent medium to increase and sustain brand awareness.
In other words, people remember the event where they got the imprinted baseball hats, shirts and pens, and they recognize the names of the brands that gave them out. Brand recognition, as every good marketer knows, is important because it lends credibility; people only want to support brands they know to be credible.
What are the best types of promotional products to distribute? According to the study, the most often recalled promotional product category is wearables, at 41%. The categories of wearables that make the biggest impression are:
- Shirts (22%)
- Caps/Headwear (11%)
- Outerwear (6%)
- Other Wearables (2%)
So as you can see, promotional shirts and personalized baseball hats are both great choices for marketing your business with promotional products. In a close second, writing instruments (yes, pens!) come in at 35%. The survey also noted that drinkware was effective, taking 19% of the market share when it came to effective promotional tools.
