How We Talk About the Promotional Industry: Why Language Matters

As a writer, you will never hear me say that words are not important. Language and how we phrase things shape how others perceive what we are doing, saying, or selling. This article discusses taking a long hard look at how promo professionals, and the promotional industry as a whole present ourselves with the words we use.

The following questions are presented as higher-value options to outdated, salesy speak.

  • What do you want to accomplish?
  • Who are you trying to reach?
  • How will you distribute the products?
  • What promotional marketing have you tried before?
  • What has worked and what has not worked in the past?
