The BPMA, (British Promotional Merchandise Association), carried out 200 face to face interviews with qualified professional buyers of promotional products. 79% stated that they feel appreciated when they receive a promotional gift, 47% stated that they feel happy and 21% said impressed.
If you are looking to make an impact with your promotional products campaign then bear in mind that 50% of professionals interviewed value usefulness.
Suitability will vary so careful thought needs to go into what constitutes as "useful" for a particular audience.
When asked how many promotional products were on their desk, an astonishing 89% had at least one, and 44% had four or more!
Nearly half of the respondents had four or more promotional products on their desk!
Pens were the most common promotional product that could be found on respondents desks.
Does this mean you should also get yourself some branded pens to compete with a busy pen pot, or should you take some time to search for something truly unique and useful that they may not already have? (Of course, when we say "you" we really mean "entrust us to do all the hard work for you"!)
