  • Employee Relations & Events
  • New Product or Service Introduction

  • Customer Referrals

Key advantages of using promotional products are the “frequency of exposure”. The more the item is used and the logo message is exposed to the user, the lower the cost per impression for the advertiser. Which poses the question… how long have you had that promotional coffee cup for now?
