Your business does not need to spend the kinds of money like the brands on this list do to create this engagement with customers and prospects. Promotional products, if created correctly, are extremely cost effective and have a far better reach and garner more impressions than the traditional forms of marketing. The messages on these products cannot be turned off like a T.V. or radio ad. They are not ignored at the same rate. They do not interrupt people, in a marketing sense. People want these products. They wait in lines at trade show booths for these products. Jump over people at sporting events for a free branded apparel t-shirt. In today’s crowded marketplace, promotional products are the marketing tactic to rise above the noise and achieve top of mind awareness with consumers.

Why else would the companies on this list spend millions of dollars on these promotional products? It is not because they have to. It is because these globally recognized brands understand the value of creating consistent engagement with consumers in order to increase the bottom line and continually have streams of revenue to fund growth.
