A promotional product that works as a marketing technique has to check a few key boxes. It must be useful or the product ends up stashed away in a desk drawer. It must be visible, so your brand is front and center to your prospects every time they use the product.
But most importantly, a promotional product has to stand out. Particularly in a trade show environment, your prospects will have endless amounts of giveaways pushed their way. Show them something they’ve never seen before. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite new promotional products for 2015.
