Say “Thank You” with Promotional Products Week 2017

Promotional products are powerful tools for companies and brands. In fact, research by the BPMA found that 82% of respondents go on to do business with a company they had received a promotional gift from.

Promotional Products Week is a national campaign celebrating branded merchandise. Its aim is to raise the profile of promotional products and demonstrate their value within the marketing mix. It was launched in 2013 by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) – one of the leading bodies in the industry – and each year has gone from strength to strength.

This year’s Promotional Products Week takes place on 2nd to 6th October 2017 and the theme is “Thank You”.

With this in mind, we look at the ways promotional products and personalised gifts can be used to say thanks.

Promotional Products Week Thanks CustomersThank Loyal Customers

Giving your customers high-quality and useful promotional products is a great way to reward them for their loyalty. Of course, at the same time you will be reminding them of your brand, services or offers.

Research shows that customers respond well to receiving promotional giveaways. According to the BPMA, recipients are more likely to respond to promotional products than any other form of advertising.

You can thank customers for stopping by your stand at a trade show, for placing a recent order or for referring you to a new client. They’ll love getting an appealing freebie and you’ll promote your business at the same time.
