Promotional Umbrellas Are Effective Advertising

Giving away promotional items such as promotional umbrellas could prove to be a highly effective way of bringing added benefits to your business.

Of all the tactics and strategies that you use to build your business, promotional items can be one of the most useful. Giving away (or selling) promotional items can benefit you in a variety of ways.

  • When given to clients and business associates, promotional items help to foster feelings of goodwill and build stronger client relationships
  • When given to customers of a retail or online store, promotional items can be used as purchase incentives that tempt your customers to purchase more items
  • When given to employees, promotional items can increase staff morale, boost productivity, and help your employees feel like members of your company team
  • Regardless of who receives your promotional items, they'll generate advertising and publicity for your company whenever they're used, helping to spread the word about the goods or services your company offers

Umbrellas are vastly underrated promotional items. The most popular promotional items—pens, coffee mugs, mouse mats and similar items—are given away so often that many people will receive several such items during the course of the year. Why not take advantage of the relative rarity of an item such as promotional umbrellas, another important aspect of these items makes them ideal for promotional use. Unlike the mouse mat, pen and coffee mug, umbrellas are designed to be used outside, in public areas. Nobody walks around town carrying a mouse mat, but whenever it's raining, everyone will open up their umbrellas—or wish they'd remembered to bring one. Any person carrying one of your company-branded promotional umbrellas instantly turns into an advertisement for your company. Thanks to the highly visible nature of the printed design you've chosen, the people around your walking advertisements will be constantly catching a glimpse of your promotional message.

The obvious utility of umbrellas makes distributing them easy. Give a promotional umbrella to each of your employees, or simply keep a supply at your work place for employees to use when needed. Offer umbrellas to clients who show up for a meeting on a rainy day without their own umbrella, or sell branded umbrellas at your retail or online store. Promotional umbrellas can be given away at trade shows or used as purchase incentive items, or promoted as prizes for a special event hosted by your company. The possibilities are virtually endlessBusiness Management Articles, and the money spent on your promotional umbrellas will be more than paid for in the publicity you generate by distributing these items.
