Promotional Products Work – Part 1

Promotional products have been subjected to various derogatory names over the years: trinkets & trash, chachkas (or tchotchkes), swag.  In spite of these names implying they have limited value, promotional products work!

Studies1 have shown that people like to receive promotional products; they frequently hang on to them and use them.

  • 83% of respondents like receiving promotional products with advertising messages.
  • 69% generally keep the item if they have a use for it.
  • 39% generally give it to others if they have no personal use for it, which generates additional exposure.
  • 91% of consumers surveyed reported having at least one promo product in their kitchen.
  • 74% reported having at least one promo product in their work space.
  • 55% had at least one promo product in their bedroom closet/storage space.
  • More than half (58%) of respondents keep promo products anywhere from one year to more than four years.

Promotional products are useful tools for marketers and recipients alike!
