I was talking yesterday about "Premiumization" and wanted to show a few more cool ideas for trade show giveaways, that will step up your brand. What do you think of this water bottle? You may think another water bottle? It is a popular item. There are over 22 million sold a year but wait... It is the very first of its kind! Which right there "had me at hello". I love it for a few more reasons though. One, we should reuse water bottles and environment is top of mind this year no matter where you are. Two, check out the imprint...four color process. Normally you see a hit of one color or two. Now you're able to capture a photo quality image. It holds up to 36 ounces, it is dishwasher safe, and (ta da) Made in the USA. It is the polycarbonate style bottle, no smelly plastic. No set-up fees, quick turn around and high resolution quality. Guaranteed wow factor as a CES Giveaway idea this year. For fun, to meet the smile factor ~ how about the custom sling shot monkey ? It loosens up the mood around the office and will for sure get people flocking to your booth to get one. He cracks me up. If you're going environmental, I love the eco desk planter. Looks so natural, speaks volumes about the warmth of your company, keeping you top of mind front and center on the desk. Don't forget the comment bonus ~everyone who passes by your desk will say "that is so cute". Looking at your logo smiling, reinforcing the positive message. I also think it's great because when you re-pot the plant, as it grows larger, you crack the egg into the soil. The egg itself then becomes fertilizer. As my friends in the UK say: "Brilliant". There are giveaways and there are giveaways. I'll be back tomorrow with some more thoughts. If you want to talk about some ideas, give me a call or if you want to just bounce some ideas off me, feel free to email. I'm right here.
