Five Ways to Use Promotional Umbrellas
Working out the best way to use your promotional items can be a difficult process. When it comes to tricky items like promotional umbrellas, thinking up effective ways to distribute them is often quite tough. Here are five different ideas for using promotional umbrellas to get you started.
Promotional Umbrellas for Client Gifts
One of the things that makes an umbrella a great promotional gift is simply that everyone finds them useful, regardless of their age, sex or profession. You can give a well-made promotional umbrella to any client and know that they'll appreciate the gift and use it as often as necessary. These can be given to both new and existing clients, and the recipients of your umbrellas will be reminded of your thoughtfulness on every rainy day.
Promotional Umbrellas for Employee Gifts
Keep promotional umbrellas to every entrant, and use some additional promotional products for prizes for the best three or four entries. On the golf course, you can give promotional golf umbrellas or other golfing accessories to business associates you play a round with.
Promotional Umbrellas as Purchase Incentives
Promotional items such as umbrellas can be used as purchase incentives for a retail store. In a purchase incentive program, you offer free items with a purchase totaling over a certain amount, or with the purchase of a larger more expensive item that you want to sell. For example, if you sell outdoor furniture in your store, you might offer a free beach-style umbrella with every purchase of an outdoor furniture set.
Note that some umbrella styles are unsuitable for an online purchase incentive—you'll probably have fairly hefty shipping costs if you're giving large umbrellas away online. If you want to use promotional umbrellas for an online purchase incentive program, use mini umbrellas that can fold up into a smaller size to make them more convenient and less expensive for shipping.
