Check what is trending

If you want to make promotional items work as a way to advertise your company, then, you must keep up with current trending topics in order to be able to push your promo items.

Dedicate a team who will work on trending topics and who will know when to use promo material. This also extends to social media use and how to use promo stuff there too.

Pay attention to needs and wants

Depending on what customers want you will need to time product or service launches in a way that will overlap with those needs and wants. Moreover, promotional products should also be designed in a way that will reflect the customers’ desires rather than what you are working on currently; unfortunately, you will have to look out for what is going on at the moment in the world, and adjust what you are selling to it in order to make a profit.

Get feedback

involve free promo stuff to those who complete surveys or who are willing to cooperate. It is a  win-win situation and it will also make your customers feel special.
