Using promotional pens to advertise any business, whether established or new, is a cost-effective method of marketing. With the name of your business, logo and contact details printed on them your customers will have something useful that they will keep in their handbags, jacket pockets or in the pen pots on their desks. When they are writing with your promotional pens they will be reminded of your business and, if they have had a good experience doing business with you, they are likely to pass on your information to whoever they are with.
Promotional pens helps to stimulate word of mouth advertising. This kind of advertising is reckoned by marketing professionals to be one of the most effective ways of promoting a business. It is true, if you think about it, when you use a pen with some writing on it you always read what it says; and if it is a funny or catchy slogan then it is likely to stick in your mind. These marketing people certainly know what they are doing, don’t they?
If you do decide to go down the road of using promotional pens to advertise your business, search on the internet for reputable suppliers that you can get in contact with to discuss your requirements. You will have to decide how many pens you would like to order first of all. Generally, the larger the order that you give them, the better price per pen you can negotiate. Then you will have to decide what type of pens you would like to use to promote your business. You can use relatively cheap biro type pens, through fine writing rollerballs, right up to executive fountain pens for your very best clients.
After this you will have to decide what colours you would like to use to promote your business. If your business already has its own advertising livery on stationery or vehicles, for example, then you could use those same colours on your promotional pens. If you do not have a colour in mind, then you could use something really bright or different, like a fluorescent pink, to make your pens stand out from the rest.
Finally, once you know how many, what kind and what colour you wish to use in your marketing campaign, all you have to decide is what information you would like to put on your pens. It is best to put your business name on the barrel with either a phone number, or website address, or both so that people can make contact with you. There will still be space on the cap to print an attractive logo to draw attention to the pens. If your marketing department can come up with a funny or catchy slogan then that is even better as it will make your pens even more memorable. Promotional pens certainly are a great marketing idea for any business!
