What Are The Best Promo Gifts To Fill Swag Bags With?

Posted in Small Business Advertising, Synergy Suggestions on 06.06.16 by John Meloche

G474GR-1024x1269Last week, the Synergy Marketing Blog touched upon the topic of swag bags and highlighted how important they’ll be this summer. Whether you plan on hosting an industry event yourself or plan on being the sponsor at a conference, you’ll certainly want to make your presence felt through the many swag bags that will be given away. As we pointed out last week, some promo gifts seem to have bigger impacts than others.

So what are some of the best gifts to give out in your swag bags? We’d have to list USB chargers among the top choices. At Synergy Marketing, we offer both USB car chargers and USB power banks. In today’s digitally-obsessed world, you’ll be hard pressed to find an individual who couldn’t make use of a charger for their mobile devices. As Rachel Sprung points out on HubSpot.com, people are always on their phones!

“Give out mobile chargers, and every attendee will love you for it,” she insists, “Oh, and they’ll probably learn your name, too. Not only will they be pleasantly surprised when they see such practical and thoughtful swag, but having their phones charged will mean they’ll be able to engage even more throughout the conference, which is great for the conference coordinator. Finally, they’ll likely use that mobile charger beyond the last day of the conference.”

Are seasonal items good items for swag bags? They sure are! Sometimes, it can be easy to get caught up in giving out gifts that will be used all-year-round. However, this summer, you’ll truly stand out if you offer gifts in your swag bags that can help to bring more enjoyment to the current season. At Synergy Marketing, we offer Flying Saucers (better known as “Frisbees”) which are perfect summer gifts.

“One way to make your swag bag stand out is by filling it with fun, seasonal items,” says Sprung, “Most companies don’t give out seasonal items because they’re looking for gifts that can be used year-round, but that fact alone makes these items even more special. If you’re hosting a summer conference or an event in a beach location, for example, then think about giving out items like beach towels, flip flops, and frisbees.”

img-foldable-water-bottle-logo-1024x1269How effective are water bottles as swag bag gifts? They’re among the best! In fact, reusable water bottles fall into both the seasonal and all-year-round categories. Not to mention, these gifts say a lot about your commitment to fostering a healthier environment. At Synergy Marketing, we have a great variety of water bottles to choose from in the Drinkware section of our catalogue.

“It may sound like a simple idea, but reusable water bottles are some of the most valued swag items given out at conferences,” reports Sprung, “First of all, they’re convenient — and a lot easier to handle than open cups of water that can easily be spilled everywhere. They also encourage attendees to stay hydrated, which can be hard for people to remember when they’re rushing from event to event. Finally, reusable water bottles pair well with the recent emphasis on conferences going green.”

Isn’t It Time You Invested In Promo Gifts To Grow Your Business?

Posted in Promotional Products on 09.05.16 by John Meloche

FL-605_BIG-500x500-1024x1269For many business owners across Canada, the question that represents the title of today’s blog is one that is met with rolled eyes. It’s okay. We understand. How could a pen, water bottle, key chain or flashlight with your company logo on it really help your business to succeed? We know that this is a question that many an entrepreneur has had on his/her mind. But, we also know that it is one that has more than one answer.

How can promo gifts really help to grow your business? Firstly, it’s important to remember that they have incredible lasting power. Those aforementioned products are items that are used by all types of people each and every day. When you hand someone one of those items bearing your company’s name and logo, you offer your brand the opportunity to be recognized on a daily basis for many months to come.

Promo gifts also help your business to save money. Consider the fact that investing in this advertising strategy is far less expensive than traditional modes of advertising. Television commercials, radio spots, print ads and billboards all require quite the marketing budget. And, in the long run, what’s their payoff? How often do you think about the commercials you see every day? How often do you use the items we pointed out earlier?

What makes Synergy Marketing’s promo gifts so special? We provide the best promo products in our industry! It’s a bold statement to make, but it is one that we stand behind confidently. It’s important to provide your promo gift recipients with high-quality items because they will be associated with your business. And you never want to give off the impression that what you have to offer is of poor workmanship.

We also have a vast selection of great gifts! Choose from pens, USB chargers, letter openers, wine stoppers, rulers, markers, flashlights, key chains, knives and so much more! Each of these items is regularly used, but there is a technique in choosing the right one for your target audience. The friendly and experienced sales reps at Synergy Marketing can definitely help you to make the right choice!

P600B-1024x1269It is, after all, important to select gifts that will be the most effective in strengthening your brand image. “Keep in mind the niche you’re hoping to target,” advises Elle-Rose Williams on HuffingtonPost.com, “For example; t-shirts, caps and sweatbands are often great if you’re a fitness brand or a gym. Desk supplies and stationary usually work better if you’re targeting businesses or corporate niches.”

Williams also notes that it’s important to not “over brand”. In other words, subtle products that are actively used are often quite effective. Pens, for example, are used by pretty much everyone, no matter what industry they’re a part of. “The more people who become aware of your brand – the better results you will see in business and sales,” says Williams. So why wait any longer to order promo gifts to make more people aware of your business?

To place your order for the promo gift of your choice, please don’t hesitate to call Synergy Marketing at 1-877-748-9884 between 9am and 5pm EST or email us at info@gosynergygo.com! You can also sign up for our Insider E-Flyer Program HERE!

What Makes Flashlights Such Great Promotional Gifts?

Posted in Promotional Products on 01.04.16 by John Meloche

FL635-1024x1269At Synergy Marketing, we offer a wide array of sensational promotional products. For many years, they have been helping Canadian business owners to gain greater acclaim amongst the members of their customer bases. Inevitably, those greater impressions generate more sales, new customers and numerous referrals that keep the companies growing. It has been proven time and time again that promo gifts are part of marketing strategies that work. And that’s no April Fools’ joke!

What makes promotional gifts so effective? Well, it’s important to consider the return on investment. Promo products just so happen to be among the most cost-efficient methods of marketing that you can find. Especially when compared to television commercials, billboards, radio spots and print ads, promo gifts are incredibly inexpensive. You can’t really get much more bang for your buck than when you invest in promotional products.

What are the most popular promo gifts to give out? At Synergy Marketing, we provide you with the best promo products in the business! We find that our most popular items include pens, water bottles, wine stoppers, USB chargers, markers, tools, sunglasses, key chains and knives. However, this is nowhere near an exhaustive list. We could go into great detail about our many other popular gifts. Flashlights, it should be mentioned, has long been a top seller.

What makes flashlights so great? Consider the fact that they come in handy in a variety of different ways. They can be used to see around your home when it’s late at night or when there is a power outage. They can be kept in your car for use in the event of car trouble under dark skies. They can be used outdoors when searching for lost articles. Obviously, this list of uses could go on and on.

img-extendo-flashlight-logo-1024x1269On ManMakesFire.com, lover of the outdoors, Chris Maxcer lists a number of reasons that flashlights make such great gifts for men just like him. For starters, the flashlights that come along with your smartphones, he insists, simply don’t cut it. “Every man likes a quality flashlight, and while the app on your phone is handy, it’s weak, fragile, and drains the life from your phone’s battery,” he writes.

Maxcer also points out that receiving a flashlight as a gift is a lot more enjoyable than having to buy one yourself. “Buying a flashlight for yourself is a tough purchase unless you have an immediate need,” he points out, “but half the point of a flashlight is being ready when you least expect it.” The most significant highlight about flashlights that makes them such great gifts is that they provide protection.

“Flashlights can be used for home security,” Maxcer notes, “and manly men like to have home protection options, even when they know the odds of a situation are slim. That’s just being a man, though — being prepared.” At Synergy Marketing, we’re prepared to offer you a wide array of promotional flashlights to choose from. Check out the Flashlights section of our catalogue and let us know which one interests you most.

To place your order for the flashlight of your choice, call Synergy Marketing at 1-877-748-9884 between 9am and 5pm EST or email us at info@gosynergygo.com! You can also sign up for our Insider E-Flyer Program HERE!

3 Main Advantages Of Giving USB Chargers As Promo Gifts

Posted in Promotional Products on 15.03.16 by John Meloche

G474BL-1024x1269In yesterday’s blog, we outlined the idea that there are many benefits of using USB chargers. In today’s world, it’s probably a “no brainer” to make such a statement. After all, as we mentioned, people use wireless devices, such as smartphones, all the time. That means that our society is pretty used to the idea of using USB chargers on a regular basis in order to provide additional battery power to their devices.

As we highlighted yesterday, Synergy Marketing offers a number of great USB chargers as part of its great promotional products catalogue. Both the USB Power Banks, which allow people to carry power along with them to charge their devices on the go, and our awesome USB Car Chargers, which enable people to plug their devices into their cars’ DC sockets to get charges, are widely popular gifts.

But what are the main advantages of giving USB chargers as promo gifts? Here are three:

1. They are compact. In our experience, we find that the small, lightweight, easy-to-carry-around gifs are the ones that have the biggest impacts. This is because they tend to stay with their recipients longer than any other type of gift. When your gift is kept on the person of its recipient, it automatically has much greater advertising power. Consider that your compact USB chargers are great ways to stay in the pockets and purses of your customers.

2. They offer quick solutions. In many cases, when a person is running out of battery power on his/her phone, there isn’t a lot of time to find a wall socket to plug it into. Having a power bank on your person saves you a lot of time and energy. As well, USB chargers are known for providing ample battery power in short amounts of time. As most business owners know, saving time means saving money.

G481BL-1024x12693. They are clutch power-providers. Your USB chargers will always be compatible with your wireless devices. This is true when the electrical outlets available to you aren’t compatible with your power cords. Keep in mind that not all electrical sockets are the same. People who are frequent travellers know this all too well. Ebay.com explains how your USB charger can come in handy when you’re not in familiar territory.

“The USB charger also has a compatibility advantage over the wall charger,” the website explains, “Since electrical outlets overseas differ from those in the United States, North American wall chargers for cell phones are useless in Europe unless the owner has a special adapter. The USB charger needs no adapter. It can use the energy from the traveler’s laptop or another personal computer.”

As you’re now well aware, Synergy Marketing provides the solution to all of your USB charger needs. Our USB Power Banks and USB Car Chargers make excellent promo gifts for the modern-day consumer. To place your order for the USB chargers of your choice, give us a call at 1-877-748-9884 between 9am and 5pm EST or email us at info@gosynergygo.com!

The Many Benefits Of Using A USB Charger

Posted in Promotional Products on 14.03.16 by John Meloche

G481BLK-1024x1269We live in a wireless world. Each and every day, the majority of us are using smartphones, tablets and laptop computers that aren’t plugged into walls. This was unheard of just a few short decades ago, but today, it seems as if nothing needs a plug and a wall socket anymore. That is, of course, unless you need to provide your wireless devices with battery power. Yes, electricity is still needed in order to charge today’s most popularly-used pieces of technology.

This is where USB chargers come in so handy. At Synergy Marketing, we offer two types of chargers as part of our amazing line up of promotional products. The USB Power Bank is a portable charger that can be plugged into an electrical socket in order to sufficiently carry along with it enough power to charge your handheld devices. Available in black, red and blue, these awesome power banks are very popular in today’s world.

They allow for people to charge their handheld devices on-the-go and when there is no availability of an electrical socket to do the charging for them. Our USB Power Banks essentially allow people to store that electrical power so that they can charge their wireless devices whenever additional battery power is needed. We also happen to carry fantastic USB Car Chargers for those who need to charge their wireless devices in the car.

A cost-effective choice, our USB Car Chargers are available in blue, green and red and make charging smartphones and other devices a breeze while driving. Simply stick the charger into your car’s DC socket and then connect your device’s USB connection into the charger and you’re on your way! These chargers are very convenient as they are extremely compact, lightweight and easy to carry around with you.

G474GR-1024x1269There are numerous ways in which USB chargers provide convenience. No matter what type of business you own or how busy you may be during your day, they can come in handy. And this is true for your customers as well. Naturally, the people who support your brand come from all walks of life. Ebay.com presents a number of scenarios that highlight just how beneficial USB chargers can be to just about everyone.

“To avoid being caught without a cell phone during a hectic school day, college students may want to keep a USB charger in their backpack or laptop bag,” says the website, “Professionals will likely want to keep one in a drawer at the office or carry one in a pad folio or briefcase. Parents juggling multiple children and appointments could keep a USB charger plugged into the home computer at all times so that they always know where their charger is and can hook up their phone as needed.”

For more information about Synergy Marketing’s USB Power Banks and USB Car Chargers, please give us a call at 1-877-748-9884 between 9am and 5pm EST or email us at info@gosynergygo.com! You can also sign up for our Insider E-Flyer Program HERE!
