Promotional Items are Still an Effective Way to Market Your Brand

Did you know that 63% of people claim they give away their promotional products to friends or family members after they’re done using them? For branded caps, consumers tend to keep them an average of seven months before passing them on to the next wearer.

Since we do live in such a digital age, consumers have learned to block or ignore most forms of advertising. But with promotional products, they welcome the advertising message because they’re getting free stuff. This puts businesses in a favorable light with its consumers, and lends the message an 85% recall rate.
