How to Choose a Promotional Product that’s GREAT, Even if Your Budget Isn’t

You’re planning your next promotional product for an event or initiative and you have a high end item in mind. Your budget might have other ideas — and that’s ok.

For every “high-end” item, there is a less expensive alternative that might be right for your audience (and certainly easier on your budget). Here are some ways you can scale back your wish list to choose an effective AND affordable promo!

$$$$ <— This … or this for less! —> $$
1. The full set? Do just a piece!
If an $8 Salon-Quality Manicure Kit is outside your budget, try a simpler Nail File Key Ring for under $1 each. Recipients will still appreciate its usefulness. You could even use it as a loyalty charm for repeat clients.

2. Full color? Simplify!
Instead of a $13 full-color branded smartphone case, a silicone “Smart Wallet” offers usefulness and branding in one, at a lower price point. You can even pop your business card inside each one as a handy way to distribute it.

3. Make a big splash? You could take the simpler option.
Instead of a $17 luxury logo’d towel, use an inexpensive branded Lip Balm with a high quality full-color label that will still be useful for days in the sun.

4. Instead of “Executive Style”, try “Functional & Affordable”.
Instead of a $4 metal stylus pen, add your logo to this less expensive Metallic Stylus Pen for less than $.80 each — attach it to a coupon for your product or services!

5. Items with a narrow appeal can cost more. Something universal helps!
Instead of a $15 stainless steel insulated tumbler, your audience might also like a more budget-friendly color-changing stadium cup — at less than $.89 each.

Bottom line: When your budget is limited, you can stretch your budget when you think outside the box!
