Corporate Giveaway Items to Energize Your Employees

Reward superior departmental performance with employee incentive items. These types of products are fun, engaging, and feature your business logo. By selecting good-quality corporate giveaway items with a high level of consumer appeal, your employees are not only sure to use these items, but they eagerly become your brand ambassadors.

 

How to Select Employee Incentive Promotional Items

Management teams frequently develop a merit system. High-appeal corporate giveaway items such as apparel require more effort and performance than items such as stress relief products. Moreover, consider the niche that you are in. Staying with the example of the stress relief products, an automotive niche company might choose car-themed stress balls whereas a tech sector firm may do well with hand spinners.

Top 5 Quality Corporate Giveaway Items That are Easy on the Budget

If you decide to go with more expensive employee incentive promotional items for peak performers, you have the added benefit of showcasing professionals who made the cut. Doing so spurs on other workers who are still catching up. Examples of possible products run the gamut of desirable consumer goods.

  1. New Era® Stretch Mesh Cap Choose from a variety of colors and sizes. Doing so ensures that every member of your staff can have access to a branded product that fits perfectly. Caps are useful, fun, and something that your employees wear at home and on vacation, too, which is a great marketing advantage for your business.
  2. Small Hit Sports Pack The material the manufacturer uses is 210D polyester. It makes the bag washable and durable. Eyelets with reinforcement protect the bag from ripping. Add your corporate logo along with brand colors. This bag is an excellent giveaway item for graduates of your training classes.
  3. 20 Oz. Olympus Stainless Steel/PP Tumbler When you need a great raffle price, you cannot go wrong with branded stainless steel tumblers. The lining features polypropylene, which works great for keeping hot beverages warm and cold ones cool. A digital full-wrap print lets you personalize items for top performers. Workers keep these cups at their desks or take them on the road in the mornings.
  4. Malibu Sunglasses Polycarbonate sides and UV400 lenses turn these fun giveaway items into functional products that your workers will love to receive. Your message goes on the sides. When you opt for the cello bag as packaging, you can include another message of encouragement that is ideally suited for employee incentive promotional items.
  5. Nike Golf Dri-Fit Micro Pique Polo Shirt The ultimate corporate giveaway items is, of course, the polo shirt. Dri-FIT fabric turns the shirt into a coveted commodity. Only top performers will wear it. It is sure to ignite a race to meet sales goals and other benchmarks. Sweeten the deal even more by offering multiple color choices. Add a decorative imprint to create a brand presence.

Customizing corporate promotional items with the makeup of your workforce in mind works well. It also creates a lot of healthy competition. If we have piqued your interest in trying something a little different for your next employee incentive program, contact the pros at ad cetera, inc. for advice.

Fidgeting your Way to Stress Relief

To put it mildly, people are feeling a lot of stress and tension these days. That tension comes from multiple sources, such as work, family, commuting or household issues. When you can provide fidget stress relievers that allow a person to relieve their negative feelings, tension, frustration and anger in a positive way, this is a big benefit. Naturally, these promotional items can have your company’s name on it, allowing you to use them as ideal marketing and promotional items at trade shows, exhibits, and other events.

 

How Fidget Cubes Work

black and white fidget cube

Fun Cube

Fidget stress reliever cubes are made of plastic and metal. They have six sides, and each of the sides has a different activity or texture. Pushing on the buttons, knobs, and doodads allows the user to release nervous energy. The cubes are quiet, making them a great choice for use in intense office environments or while a person is on a call and activities such as tapping fingernails or feet would be too loud. When the user is able to release that nervous energy by using a fidget cube with your company’s name and logo on it, that person will associate your business with a good feeling. The fidget cubes are quiet and easy to hold in the hands, just like quality promotional pens.

 

Why Stress Balls Are Desirable Promotional Items

Convertible Car Stress Reliever

Stress balls are slightly squishy. They fit into the palm of the hand and are just the right size for the fingers to wrap around and squeeze. The lightly textured surface and flexible interior allow a person to squeeze his or her stress out with the ball. These fun stress balls come in a variety of colors and patterns, and they can have your company’s name stamped on them. There are even other shapes besides a perfect sphere, such as eggs, footballs, stars, and cubes. Just like with the best promotional pens, people will see your company’s name every time they use the stress balls. The release of tension that happens from squeezing a stress ball will be associated with your company in a positive way.

 

Benefits of Fidget Toys and Fidget Stress Relievers for the Hands

purple fidget spinner with red bull's logo

Platinum Hand Spinner

Chances are good that you have seen someone with raggedy fingernails. That person may have relieved stress with nail biting. Other people might jingle their keys or tap their feet. Fidget toys and fidget stress relievers are quiet, and they can replace the more noisy or messy nervous habits. They reduce anxiety and stress without causing any harm. Many people are able to stay more focused when their hands are busy, which clients will appreciate.

Releasing stress in a productive and healthy way helps to promote workplace wellness, increases productivity and could even boost loyalty. When a person has something to do with his or her hands, a feeling of relaxation and release of tension is the natural result. These stress relievers from Ad Cetera, Inc., whether for your employees or your client’s employees, aim to relieve tension and stress while keeping your company front and center in their mind.

Carrying Its Own Weight in Brand Awareness: TSA-Approved Carry-On Baggage as a Promotional Giveaway

The contemporary professional is always on the go and is perpetually looking for new ways to haul around the accouterments associated with the business lifestyle. That said, it’s no surprise that offering TSA-approved luggage as a travel promotional item is one of the best ways to please potential clients while simultaneously gaining brand exposure wherever they go. Quality promotional pens are a great way to get your brand out there in miniature, but there’s hardly anything more eye-catching than a smartly placed logo on a carry-on bag as it rolls down the concourse.

 

Promotional Products with a Practical Purpose

silver tsa approved hardcover rolling luggage

High Sierra® 20″ Hardside Luggage

Many types of travel promotional items look pretty but are easily lost or forgotten. Even the best promotional pens have a way of falling by the wayside, and items like calendars only last a year. A well-constructed and convenient carry-on bag, however, is something that will be used year after year, practically guaranteeing perennial brand exposure.

Plus, a TSA-approved promotional carry-on bag is one of the biggest canvasses available for giving your brand extra exposure. The right promotional bag basically serves as a rolling billboard, drawing attention and raising all the right kinds of questions.

 

Perfect Packer for the Best Promotional Pens

Promotional carry-on bags can also serve as the perfect containers for other travel promotional items. There’s nothing more satisfying as the receiver of free stuff than opening your gift and finding even more goodies inside. TSA-approved promotional carry-on bags are the ideal items to pair with other products that bear your distinctive brand logo. Perfect pairings include promotional luggage tagsdeluxe passport covers, and TSA-approved hand sanitizer. While you’re at it, don’t forget to throw in a few quality promotional pens just to be safe.

 

Equally Enticing Alternatives

Silver luggage tag with custom logo

Metallic Luggage Tag

While the benefits of TSA-approved carry-on bags that bear your logo are certainly alluring, investing in a whole fleet of this particular travel promotional item can get pretty pricey. If you want to promote your brand with bags that won’t break the bank, there are plenty of options available besides your traditional rollaboards.

Anyone who’s ever been to a convention can’t help but be familiar with iconic and affordable drawstring backpacks. These promotional items are the cheapest of the cheap when it comes to carry-on bags, enabling you to proliferate your brand on a budget. But there’s also plenty of middle-ground to work with, including medium-priced computer backpacks and convenient sling backpacks.

All of these items do the hard work of getting your logo in front of curious eyes but don’t entail the same degree of financial investment as TSA-approved carry-on baggage. Yet nothing can ever truly replace the sleek style of a beautifully branded rollaboard.

 

Summing It Up

TSA-approved carry-on baggage stands the test of time because there’s no chance of a disgruntled worker breaking the lock and ruining the bag. These promotional items also positively scream “business,” associating your brand with the elite lifestyle and executive quality. Though more affordable options certainly exist, nothing pairs better with other travel-oriented promotional items than a TSA-approved rollaboard with your logo on it. Take a look through the comprehensive catalog of promotional bags available from ad cetera, inc. to get an idea of the incredible options that are at your disposal.

While participants are busy completing their paperwork and getting their numbers in the morning, you can provide a small reminder of your business with a customized energy bar or other healthy snack. Individual packs of trail mix are a great option that are sure to provide an infusion of protein before or after the event.

 

Provide Pocket Reminders With the Best Promotional Pen

Small inexpensive giveaways that are always needed, like quality promotional pens, make affordable, easy-to-distribute gifts when you’re looking for something that can satisfy hundreds of participants.

Help Them Clean Up

Customized rally towels in various colors

Rally towels provide a fun, practical way to advertise at these types of events. If your budget allows, you can give these colorful giveaways to onlookers who can wave them from the sidelines of the race to cheer on their favorite walker or runner. Participants are always thankful for a towel to mop up the sweat on a hot day. These washable towels can be a useful addition around the home as well as a reminder of the special event.

 

Give Racers Totes to Stay Organized

Custom tote bags with a front pocket in various colors

Non-Woven Shopper’s Pocket Tote Bag

It’s amazing how many things can quickly accumulate for participants on race day. Extra clothes, water bottles, paperwork, maps, towels and snacks can be tough to keep together. Consider providing tote bags as a participant giveaway to help racers gather their swag more easily at the end of the day. You can encourage reuse of the totes on shopping days to make an ongoing contribution to environmental sustainability as well.

Planning an annual walk or run event can be a lot of work. The details of signing up participants, coordinating with city officials, planning the route and managing race-day logistics are often a full-time job for someone in your organization. Make the inexpensive giveaways component a little easier by contacting ad cetera, inc to help. We can provide ideas and customization of everything from water bottles to the best promotional pens for your special event.

Eco-Friendly Promo Items That Engage Your Desired Demographic

Today’s consumers increasingly prefer products that have a reduced impact on the environment. This preference even extends to eco-friendly promo items that are received for free at conventions or as part of marketing campaigns. Given this demand for biodegradable, recycled, and sustainable items, savvy brand promoters are provided with the opportunity to engage their audience from an unconventional and often-overlooked angle.

Exposing Your Brand to Engage Sustainable Interest

A rising focus on sustainable consuming habits can make it so that the material your eco-friendly promo items are made from becomes more memorable than the item itself. For instance, if your quality promotional pens are made from sustainable materials, people are more likely to associate your brand with sustainable practices, improving your brand perception. Even better are sustainably produced items like the Growables Planter, which is made from spruce wood without using any glue. A planter with your company’s name on it is the perfect way to show customers of your nursery or flower shop that you care about the environment.

What Are the Best Promotional Pens for Leaving a Mark?

The types of promotional pens that leave the most lasting impression on potential clients are those that effectively convey your brand’s story while also fitting in with the potential client’s priorities and values. Items that are clearly labeled as being recycled are more likely to be used frequently and remarked upon, leading to greater retention of your brand and greater likelihood that the item’s user will share your brand with others simply due to your focus on sustainability. Certain eco-friendly promo items like the Promo Write Recycled Notebook are made from recycled materials and come with a sustainably manufactured pen that will leave a lasting impression on customers of your legal office or consulting firm.

Often-Overlooked Avenues to Biodegradable Engagement

Biodegradable promotional items can be utilized for increased brand awareness in a number of surprising ways. For instance, biodegradable dental office promotional items like the Escape Jute Tote Bag don’t only serve as reminders to come back in for a checkup or further dental work; they also serve as a way to expose your brand to anyone who sees these items at the home or workplace of one of your patients. Using biodegradable promotional items as dental office freebies is a great way to conform to the value judgments of your existing patients while also anticipating the values that potential new clients hold dear.

Any brand can use the end of the old year and the coming of spring to their advantage by using new year promotional items at conventions, through the mail, or at the workplace. Many potential clients look forward to the new year as an opportunity to start fresh and leave behind the habits of the past in order to start something new. This forward-looking mindset is the perfect mentality with which to associate biodegradable promotional items.

Promote Your Priorities with Precision

Nobody likes wasteful merchandise, so choosing environmentally friendly products representing your business shows clients and customers that you’re thoughtful about your branding and business. Whether you’re leaning toward biodegradable products meant to be used for a short (but impactful) time or items made of high-quality recycled materials or designed with an eye to sustainability, we provide a variety of dependable and fun choices.

Many brands opt to work with ad cetera, inc due to the quality of the promotional products that we offer and the plenitude of recycled, biodegradable, and sustainable options that populate our catalog. Take a look at our wide array of personalizable promotional items to get an idea of what ad cetera, inc can do for your brand.

Send Customers Away With More Than Full Bellies: The Best Promo Items for Your Restaurant

As a restaurant owner, your first priority is to provide quality food at reasonable prices and with excellent service. Although that alone will help boost your business, don’t overlook the power of the restaurant promotional item. Customers love taking free stuff home, so be sure to bid them farewell with more than just a satisfied appetite. Fun, inexpensive promotional products help keep your restaurant at the forefront of their minds and serve as great conversation starters for potential new business.

During Their Visit: Things You Need Anyway

Whether you are a small, local hole-in-the-wall cafe, a major national chain, or a high-class bistro, you need a wide variety of items to serve your patrons during a meal. Dishes, coasters, glasses, napkins, and flatware all have the potential to promote your restaurant to your most captive audience. Be sure to select a restaurant promotional item that fit the decor and atmosphere of your restaurant, whether that be beer steins, cocktail napkins or to-go cups.

The Write Idea: Quality Promotional Pens

Everyone can use extra pens. When you offer free pens to your customers, you are peppering their homes, cars, and offices with tiny ads for your restaurant. The extra writing tools will come in handy whether they end up in a desk drawer, a pocket or on the kitchen counter and will serve as a little reminder of a positive dining experience. Often, they can serve as calling cards as they get passed along to a friend, family member or stranger who is looking for a pen.

Food Fun for All

Consider using food shaped items to get your name out there. A cheeseburger stress reliever or a magnet shaped like a slice of pizza with your company info are great ways to make sure you’re restaurant is memorable and encourage repeat business. Have a more upscale clientele? An elegant corkscrew is a great way to reward your most loyal guests.

A Sweet Farewell: A Treat on the Way Out

Grabbing a few mints on the way out is always a pleasant way to say “Goodbye, and please come again!” to your customers. For just a few pennies, you can create a promotional wrapper for a butter mint that will serve as a reminder of a tasty lunch or pleasant dinner, and perhaps it’ll be shared with a friend or colleague later in the day.

The Take-Out Box: Put Leftovers to Work

Portion size continues to climb, and when your customers can’t quite finish everything on their plate, give them something to take home and remember you by. By hand-selecting promotional takeout containers or take-out bags, you can put all those leftovers to work. Bags and boxes serve as small signposts to keep your eatery in the minds of your regular customers as well as possibly introduce new people to your restaurant as bags get reused or re-purposed in upcoming weeks.

The Cool Association: Give ’em Something to Wear

If you have a hip and happening restaurant, think about selling some attractive T-shirts or hats to get your restaurant’s name out into the community. Come up with a signature design or creative message, and watch your restaurant promotional item goes viral.

If you’re ready to get your restaurant’s name out there and take advantage of the opportunities that come up each day, check out the myriad of products offered by ad cetera, inc. Whether you’re looking for the best promotional pens, coasters, corkscrews, or apparel, ad cetera, inc. is sure to be able to find you a unique item that can deliver your message effectively. Fun and useful promotional items serve as a great complement to delicious food, personal service, and affordable prices.
