Before the Year End Celebrations – Plan for 2017!

December is the perfect time to celebrate everything and everyone who helped skyrocket your company in 2016! It is also the time to execute a plan to make 2017 even better. Whether you want to make more contacts, increase sales or standout from the crowd, it all starts with a plan.

Planning ahead can make your business run smoothly especially, if your plan includes trade shows, community events, and direct mail campaigns. A well thought out plan should include printed promotional products to give away to potential clients keeping with your brand to make you memorable. With so many options of giveaway items to print on, it takes time and a good, organized plan.

When looking for giveaways or swag, one place to start is by being on top of what is new. We are all guilty of loving the coolest new gadget, especially if someone wants to give it to us for free. Here are three ideas to get you started and remembered.

Excuse me. Do you have a pen?

Even with all of our technological advancements EVERYONE seems to be asking for a pen. Possibly because we often forget to bring a pen with us as we travel or rely on borrowing someone else’s pen make pens a classic go to favorite at trade shows. Traditional, yes, but it doesn’t have to be. Now, pens multitask as phone stylists or are dual-purpose pens where one end is a pen and the other a highlighter. 

Another option is to give away creative, quirky pens to brighten a day, break the ice and most importantly — bring people to your booth. Pens can be shaped into everything from airplanes to windmills to flowers to further cement your brand in the mind of future clients.

If you plan to give away pens at you next trade show and expect attendees to pick up your pen and keep it, make sure it is a good quality pen. A pen needs to feels good in your hand. Holding a pen is a very personal, tactile experience. A poorly made plastic, ballpoint pen will only end up in the trash after a single use. Choose wisely. What pen to choose is where a trusted promotional product expert comes in handy to help you out! At SEP Communications we know pens and with our expertise we can help guide you through the process of picking the perfect pen to represent your company.

Another perk about pens is that they are perfectly, pocket-sized and portable – no bag, no worries. Many times trade show attendees are tired by the end of the day and saddled down with so much corporate swag that compact, lightweight items are a welcomed addition to their bag and/or their pockets.

Want a promotional pen? With so many options to choose from, we are here to make the process easy for you!Search our website at SEP Swag and get your promotional pen in THEIR POCKET!

When is a corporate gift not really a gift?

Think about all the corporate gifts you have received over the years. There always seems to be a few gifts that are not really gifts, but something akin to receiving a mini billboard that make you reply, “thanks, I think?” Gifts without any consideration to the opening experience, message or failing to make a thoughtful connection to the recipient can be a waste of time, resources and most importantly reputation. Don’t worry, we are here to help you every step of the way!

Here are a few things to think about before putting together you corporate gift plan.

First, do not underestimate the opening experience. The anticipation of opening a gift is always the best part! With impeccable attention to detail, consider how the label, the outer package, inner stuffing, message, gift item, card bring together a cohesive theme.

Stay true to your brand with color. Picture Ikea: sunny yellow and royal blue come to mind - Target, red. What color readily represents you?

Make the message the main focus. A well thought out message can translate to your client that you care about them and appreciate their business. Quotes are a fabulous place to start! Quotes can be printing on almost anything you can think of. A meaningful quote on a product, packaged consistently with your brand doesn’t mean you have to drop everything to get this done. You can stay attentive to your business and let us do all the work.

No need to worry about the holidays; call us! We would love to help you with your holiday gift plan. We can help you with a single item or handle everything from start to finish. We do it all!
