Promoting and advertising a small business requires some research and understanding your audience. But to get the most out of your marketing approach, you need to offer something unique to your customers. Giving away free bottles, cups, and other drinkware can be just the thing to give your organization a shot in the arm that it needs to succeed.
But where do you start with giving away custom drinkware, and what sort of information should you put on it? Those can be difficult questions to answer. There are all sorts of promotional drinkware out there, but finding out which ones your customers love can be a challenge. Here are five types that are sure to be a hit:
1. Water bottles
Water is essential for life, and custom water bottles make it easy for people to stay hydrated on the go. They can also help promote your brand or message. Water bottles are a great way to stay hydrated on the go. Not only are they convenient, but they can also help promote your brand or message. By using custom water bottles, you can create a unique and memorable experience for your customers or supporters. They offer an inexpensive and unique way to interact with your guests.
Give them away at events, offer them for sale, and be sure to use them as part of a customer loyalty program. Water bottles can come in all shapes and sizes, but you want to offer something that your customers are likely to use. You have different options for materials as well, including plastic, glass, and metal. Whatever you choose to offer your customers, be sure to ensure it’s BPA free and environmentally friendly. Customers tend to keep water bottles for a few years, and every time they use them, your custom logo will remind them of your company. That makes them a great option for customers and businesses alike.
Tumblers are perfect for coffee lovers and anyone who wants to keep their drinks cold or hot for extended periods of time. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making them perfect for any occasion or recipient. Tumblers can be made of plastic, glass, stainless steel, and other materials. They’re pretty durable and can last for a long time. It also doesn’t hurt matters that they’re easy to clean. Tumblers make a great gift and can really benefit your business from both sales and giveaways.
Give them away at trade shows or events or even as part of your loyalty program. Who wouldn’t want a free tumbler from a company they love? Custom tumblers with your logo on them can be a great boon to advertising your company because it shows that you care about providing customers with quality while simultaneously displaying your logo/contact information for all to see.
3. Travel mugs and insulated cups
Like tumblers, travel mugs can keep drinks hot or cold for extended periods of time – making them great options when you’re on the go. Plus, they have lids, so you don’t have to worry about spills ruining your day—or messing up your favorite clothes. They’re practical. They’re useful. You can sell or give them away. Many of them can also be imprinted with custom logos or given away as promotional items.
That makes them a versatile option for any marketing campaign. People love insulated and vacuum-sealed beverage containers because they’re incredibly useful. So if you’re looking for a practical and affordable way to promote your brand, consider investing in some travel mugs. You—and your customers—won’t be disappointed if you do.
4. Coffee mugs
Who among us doesn’t drink at least two cups of coffee every day? Not many. If you’re looking for an affordable and effective way to promote your small business, using custom logo coffee mugs is pretty effective. Mugs are something that nearly everyone uses every day, so they’re the perfect way to get your business’ name and logo out there into the world at large.
Plus, with all of the different customization options available (like custom logos, images, business information, and more), you can create mugs that perfectly reflect and encapsulate your brand. Coffee mugs are a fun and engaging way to build rapport with your customers and offer plenty of ROI where it counts the most.
5. Wine glasses
Wine glasses may seem like an unconventional choice for promotional drinkware, but they offer some unique benefits. Offering promotional wine glasses at your small business is a great way to advertise yourself and engage with customers through a common type of drink: wine. Many people like to kick back and relax with a glass of wine every so often, so why not tap into that trend with a custom promotional wine glass of your own?
Wine glasses are a common household item, so people are likely to see your business’s name or logo every time they use the glass. Additionally, providing wine glasses as a promotional item can help increase customer loyalty by giving them something special that they can only get from your business.
