Promotional products & corporate clothing as part of your marketing strategy

Your business, like all other businesses, requires a solid marketing strategy to promote growth and retention. Henry Ford said, “Stopping advertising to save money is like stopping your watch to save time”. Business need to advertise their products, service offerings, expertise and above all their brand. Your brand must be front and centre, uniform across all functions and consistent. It is for this reason that branded goods, promotional products and corporate clothing should form part of your marketing strategy. Your brand must look the part at all times, over  multiple mediums and mechanisms.

Promotional product and branded goods play a vital role in the marketing mix of any brand. Corporate clothing brings uniformity to a brand’s representatives and team. While branded goods, such as folders, notebooks, pens and other accoutrements are an extension of this unified image. In addition, corporate gifts that represent you and your business need to follow the same modus operandi. Without these products there is no glue to bind brand and people or brand and perception.

Creating perceived value through the act of giving

The value of giving can never be understated. A brand that gives back to its team, clients and the community ads value to everyone who has a stake in the business. With this having been said, this perceived value can be a vessel for your brand. Your brand is an extension of your ideals, mantra, methodology and values. With this in mind, you can use promotional products, branded goods and corporate clothing to communicate these elements of your brand identity. Whether it is fun and funky or professional and reliable, these messages can reside in the mechanisms you use to make your brand tangible.
