3 Keys to Encouraging Healthy Habits with Branded Products

Is your target audience a health-conscious crowd? Are you considering a wellness program to help improve the overall health of your staff? Branded products are a great way to make a connection with either audience. However, there are some important factors when choosing a promotional product for your health-focused campaign.

portion control lunch kit1. Make it useful.

The more useful the item, the more likely it is to be kept, used, and seen repeatedly. So increase your ROI with useful items like these:

2. Choose something attractive.

Any promotional item is more desirable if it’s got a cool, trendy look.

3. Don’t skimp on quality.

A throw-away item will end up just that, while a quality fitness product will have staying power.

How to Use Halloween as a Marketing Opportunity

Aside from Christmas, Halloween is the biggest holiday for consumer spending, and the affordability of promotional Halloween giveaways like trick-or-treat bags, make it possible for even the smallest of companies to get noticed.

Halloween Promos By Perry

Market: Trick-Or-Treaters

  • Hand out imprinted treat bags ahead of the holiday for “ToTs” to use. Consider adding a coupon on the bag itself for return business.
  • How about a logo’d pumpkin carving spoon? You can hand them out at your very own pumpkin carving contest!
  • Reflective safety accessories are a great way to help keep trick-or-treaters safe and get your logo noticed.
  • Even an imprinted flashlight is a welcome gift that will be kept and used again.

Market: Community Events

  • Add your brand to a local event using fun nighttime promotional products.
  • Plastic light-up drinkware or glow-in-the-dark accessories are always a hit at clubs & parties.
  • Get your promos in the hands of folks coming out of haunted houses and it will be a fun souvenir.

Market: Customers and Prospects

  • Go “reverse trick-or-treating” by going door-to-door to your customers and giving them a container of candy to give out. Put it in a custom imprinted bag, box, or even a reusable candy jar for maximum impact.
  • Send your prospective customers a Halloween-themed stress ball to let them know you want to help with their “scariest” problems!

Promotional Products of 2015: Year in Review

It’s interesting to look back and see how the year has gone. My “Year in Review” might just give you ideas for next year!

Tech Backpack

My Favorite Promotion: Tech Backpack

The folks at TEEX needed a heavy duty, laptop-friendly backpack for their team and this one does the job, With a crisp screenprinted logo and plenty of padding for fragile gear, this backpack will handle field work with ease.

TFStwigpen

Most Creative Promotion: “Twig” Pen

When the Texas Forest Service wants a ‘wooden pen’, why not get an actual piece of wood? All the twig pens are unique, because they are individually carved, hollowed out for the pen and then the pens are imprinted for a one-of-a-kind promotion that will keep people talking!

mooddrinkware

Hottest Item of the Year: Color-Changing Drinkware

A lot of clients this year looked to the popular color-changing cups and sports bottles. From youth events to dental health promotions, it’s a fun way to spread your brand.

 prosperwacokoozie

Fastest Turnaround: Koozie

It’s always nice to have extra time to get a promotion in time for an event, but sometimes circumstances don’t allow the luxury of time. We turned around this Koozie for our new friends at Prosper Waco in a little over a week. You sacrifice in the proofing process a little bit, but when it’s simple artwork, it’s often possible!

 scoops

Best Self Promotion for Perry Office Plus: Ice Cream Scoops

As a Texas company ourselves, we celebrated the return of Texas’ favorite ice cream (Blue Bell) this fall with a promotional ice cream scoop that reads: “Perry Office Plus and I Survived the Ice Cream Famine of 2015”. Our sales reps handed them out as part of a contest to win a Blue Bell Ice Cream party at the customer’s office. They made great conversation-starters!
