There is so much to love about summer, it’s a shame that more brands don’t take advantage of this season. Some brands experience a summer slowdown, which affects the normal rhythm of their business. Employees take more time off, leading to random schedules and lighter workdays. This isn’t the case for all industries, but it is for many.
This summer, why not use the time to promote your business? By attending community events and trade shows, you have the opportunity to hand out corporate summer swag. Capture new audiences, drive traffic to your website and start prepping for the fall season – all while your competitors are taking the summer off!
Below we share the very best ideas for wowing your audience with corporate summer swag.
Mobile Device Chargers
Just about everyone has a mobile device these days, so phone chargers are incredibly useful. As you probably know from experience, it doesn’t matter what type of phone you have or how new it is. The battery drains. So, if you’re at a trade show and attendees are on their phones checking email and arranging meetings, they’ll be at 50% or less by lunch. Hand out mobile device chargers and get more smiles than you can imagine.
The weather is unpredictable, so help your customers out by supplying them with an umbrella. Rain is something we don’t have control over, but it can ruin a good time. Your customers will love you for thinking ahead and keeping them comfortable during a rainy event. Inkwell Global Marketing has umbrellas for every occasion and type of weather, including those with venting and windproofing.
Reusable Water Bottles
Reusable water bottles are one of the most popular branded swag items. They’re convenient, easy to carry and environmentally friendly. Plus, they keep people hydrated while they’re on the go. To keep things interesting, check out our one-of-a-kind water bottles. Aside from our standard sports water bottles and wide mouth aluminum bottles, we have color-changing options, built-in wireless speakers (a must-have for the beach!) and our popular Fruit Fusion bottles.
T-Shirts and Polos
Who doesn’t love expanding their wardrobe with comfy, practical t-shirts? Soft, cotton tees are perfect for casual days, running errands or doing chores around the home. Performance tees are great for the gym and working out. And, if you want to stick to a more professional image, you could offer embroidered polos. To ensure that your shirt gets worn, choose a balance of comfort and style.
How many sunglasses do you lose in the summer?! Sunglasses are easy to misplace because people bring them everywhere. They also get forgotten and left behind, and that’s only if they make it long enough not to get broken. Give your customers summer swag they can’t refuse – sunglasses! Available in endless styles – flashy colors, wood grain patterns or rubber – you can find the perfect fit for your brand.
Don’t let the summer slowdown slow you down! Get out there, attend local events and hand out corporate summer swag to keep your brand front and center.
