Do you know why people all over the world are aware of Nike or Adidas? You may travel to some hamlet in Russia or to the outback in Australia and people will have heard of those brands. A majority of Chinese may not be able to name the biggest national brand in footwear but will be able to instantly tell you what Nike and Adidas are. How is it that two companies, despite being costly brands, are well known all over the world.
The quality of products made by brands such as these two is possibly superior to most of their brethrens but that is not what made them a phenomenon. It is outreach, visibility and brand awareness that has made them a household name. These companies spend a fortune on advertisements, they sponsor every major team or event that will get them some exposure and they are always visible, whether on television or on the roads. Spreading brand awareness is not difficult, provided you have the right strategies.
Not every company can spend a fortune like the major brands but a small to medium business can always invest in promotional products to communicate brand awareness. If you cannot have a dominant presence on visual media or on the roads, then you can always get customers to have your promotional products at no cost and let them know that you exist. In the process, you will also let others know that your company exists.
Promotional products are the most effective tools to communicate brand awareness. Tees sporting a brand’s logo, drinkware bearing messages of a brand or simply sporting the name and a horde of other promotional products which don’t cost much but are very effective can change the game for any business. When consumers get promotional products, albeit for free; they are happy and they remember the name of the company that indulged in the gesture. When those consumers use the promotional products, the people around them get accustomed with the brand’s presence. Once brand awareness is established, advertisement and marketing or even sales become less of a challenge.
There is a plethora of choices when it comes to promotional products and every business can choose what is affordable, relevant and effective. Check out the info-graphic and find out more about the ways to use promotional products to communicate brand awareness.
