Promotional Products: Still the No. 1 choice for successful advertising

Promotional Products

Promotional products were around long before great-grandma hung a Texaco magnet on her avocado green refrigerator.

Customized products make a statement

Even though companies today rely heavily on email, Facebook and other social media sites, nothing gets a customer’s attention like a free gift.

Smart businesses for decades have given away customized products with their name and logo to boost exposure. They know logo pens, flying discs and other items will keep their name “out there” longer and cost less than a billboard or newspaper ad.

Totally Promotional for 20 years has helped businesses, organizations and government agencies reach their target audience with personalized giveaway products such as can coolers. pencils, cups and lip balm.

All She Wrotes Note Retractable Banner Stand

“I use your koozies every day as promotional giveaways and items for sale in my shop!” said Maghon Taylor, owner of All She Wrote Notes, a calligraphy studio in the Carolinas. “I actually planned on using them for our wedding last spring and I posted a photo on my business Instagram and someone asked if I sold them. So I decided to! It’s been an awesome ride and one of my favorite products! My favorite product is my pull-up (retractable) banner … It really adds a layer of professionalism to every event I attend and every class I teach. You can’t always control the scenery when you’re on the road, so it’s awesome to be able to pop it up and have a fully branded backdrop for the event!”

Recent customer Leigh Patrick had this to say:

Tote Bags“Our bags from Totally Promotional were a hit at our Annual Conference.  Everywhere we looked people were using their bags and relying on the quality of the bags to hold their heavy conference items, i.e. computers, phones, program book, etc.,” Patrick told us.
