Retail Promotions Retail promotions offer the chance to market your Company or message directly to the end user of your services. The item received must be useful or fun and reflective of the brand, if these boxes are ticked your item will be kept and go on to promote your message. A key element to a retail promotion is ensuring the budget spent on the item is reflective of the customer’s expected spend. Once this has been set it is then a case of choosing a product that compliments the Company’s own products or services and does not degrade them. HANDOUTS Promotional handouts offer a great chance to increase brand exposure in a geographical location quickly. However the downside to this technique is the inability to tailor who the handouts are given to. In effect at least 75% or more of the recipients will not be interested in the product or service being offered but only interested in the item being given away. With this in mind it is important that the item appeals to the customer you are focusing on and does not cost the earth to produce.

Unlike the Handouts described above, Point of Sale merchandise is much more tailored to the user being the right fit for the brand, after all they have just bought a product from the company! The most obvious example here is the reusable shopping bag, anything from a durable cotton tote bag to a luxury rope handled gift bag. However the options are endless and sealing the deal with a nice little gift leaves your customer with the warm feeling you want them to associate with a purchase of your product.
