Top Reasons to Give Out Promo Mugs
Giving away a freebie in hopes of winning new business can seem like a risk. But, promo items consistently lead to much better results than other advertising mediums. Don't believe us? Did you know 85% of consumers said they are more likely to do business with brands after receiving a promo mug according to SAGE? It's no wonder businesses spend $18.2 billion annually on promo items! Here's why you can't go wrong with custom printed mugs:
- Customers Appreciate Value - Unlike ads, promotional items aren't intrusive, and they don't take away from the customer experience. We all love a warm cup of coffee from time to time, whether it's espresso, cappuccino or mochaccino. That's why promo mugs provide something of value, which instantly encourages your target audience to trust and admire your brand.
- Freebies Offer Incentive - A meaningful gesture sets a positive tone. Give clients a reason to let their guard down, and you won't have to work hard to get a "yes". People who aren't in buy mode shut down when they see you're after a sale. Free products have a disarming effect! They keep consumers interested long enough in order to achieve your goal, whether it's surveying participants or gathering email addresses.
- Marketing Reach Is Above Average - With promo items, you aren't asking people to spend money or make a commitment. There's no reason to turn down a freebie! Your brand message is very likely to reach its target audience. Even if 20% of consumers discard promo items, according to the Promotional Products Association International, by comparison, 68% of people skip online ads and 66% turn away from TV ads.
- Branded Items Boost Recognition - Think customers forget your brand name the moment you hand over a freebie? Think again! 9 in 10 people recall branding on promo items! Promo mugs have a huge potential of getting people invested in your brand. Avid caffeine drinkers love gathering a diverse mug collection. Besides, every time they brew up a hot cup of coffee, your brand name is on display for others to see.
Must-Follow Marketing Tips
Promo mugs work like a business card. They offer an introduction and a way for prospects to remember you after their first point of contact. Yet mugs don't get shoved into a drawer like business cards. Drinkware stays out in the open where it can be seen by all eyes! Take advantage of this visibility! Here are a few tips to help you design mugs with the potential to attract inbound leads:
- Go For a High-Quality Product - Consumers hang onto promo drinkware for 8 months, according to ASI. Ensure your mugs have a long shelf life! Poorly made mugs may backfire and make customers less likely to form a good opinion of your brand. On the other hand, a premium mug shows people you value their loyalty and time.
- Use Crisp, Legible Artwork - You need promotional mugs that are easy to read, attractive as well as fade-resistant. Sadly, your promotional drinkware won't have much impact if the branding begins wearing away after a couple of rounds in the dishwasher and looks unprofessional.
- Make Your Design Interesting - It's perfectly fine to keep your design simple, as for some industries it's better to take a conservative approach. Nevertheless, designs with a "wow" factor are better for a witty or fun brand. Why not showcase a memorable saying or illustration that gets people excited to show off your ceramic mugs?
- Feature a Call to Action - In a PPAI study, 79% of customers said they are more motivated to research a brand after receiving a promo product. Give people a way to learn more about your brand. Otherwise, what's the point of devoting your money and time to designing freebies? Feature a call to action to tell people what to do next! It may be as simple as a website URL, phone number or hashtag.
- Appeal to the Right Audiences - Get the widest exposure by targeting people who have connections to your audience. Gift branded mugs to those who have high visibility, broad influence or strong loyalty. Loyal customers, employees, vendors, associates and trade show attendees make great brand ambassadors. They're invested in your success and could benefit from bringing you business!
