We get it. Sometimes the budgets gets cut to pieces, and the only thing left to do is lower the promotional products budget.
This is unfortunate given the effectiveness of promotional product marketing.
That said, here are a few ways to get promotional products, cheap.
Get Promotional Products Cheap
Buy In Large Quantities
Buying promotional products in large quantities does not sound cost effective. However, when one looks at the breakdown of prices, it makes sense.
And don’t worry, it’s not as confusing as buying toilet paper.
Without getting into the details of things, the reason this works is because of price breaks.
Many of the factories we work with have a method in which they produce their products in a way that makes sense to make them in bulk.
Because of this, it trickles down to how many distributors sale their products.
This can be helpful because instead of spending $500 and coming out with, say, 50 duffel bags, you could spend $2,160 for 250 bags.
At first this doesn’t sound like a deal. But when that’s a 13.6% difference per bag, the savings makes sense over time!
You end up for more marketing products for a lesser price overall.
Shop Cheap Promotional Products
“Cheap promotional products” does not mean bad quality. It means, “I value promotional product marketing, but have a tight budget.”
Some of our favorite cheap promotional products are these comfort grips for drinks, which can be customized as low as under $0.50!
The key here is to find something that is practical and can be used.
If it cannot serve those who it is being given to, then it will be a waste of marketing spend.
Have a Presale
One of our favorite methods in which our customers acquire their promotional products without touching their marketing budget is doing a pre-sale of their products.
For example, graphic tee shirts!
With the right kind of targeting and messaging, running a pre-sale can entice customers to buy the shirt before it is even bought.
This is a form of drop-shipping, which is used to sale products before it is even bought.
