12 Key Promo Products You Can Use in A Trade Show to Make It a Success

Trade show provides a big podium for the businesses to launch their brand and create the buzz of their products. Every year, thousands of companies participate in trade fairs to promote their business and get in front of their leads.

Promo products make a significant part of success for a business in a trade show. Businesses gift these items to the attendees to create hype of their brand and engage more leads in their business. However, you need to understand that giving away promo products is only part of the job.

You can achieve the marketing objectives with promo product only when you offer the right type of giveaway to your target audience. It should be something that goes with your brand personality and also make an impact in the lives of your future customers.

So if you intend to participate in a trade show, here are some of the best promo products that you can give away to your client at the event:

1.T-Shirt

T-shirts are the best trade show giveaways you can gift to your leads during a trade show. I mean who doesn’t want to get a free tee? The reason that makes t-shirts a favorite for the attendees is that they are comfortable and make them look stylish. And since the spring/summer is just around the corner, there can’t be a better tee than a 100% cotton t-shirt with custom patches of your brand.

2.Lip Balm

Chapped lips can attract unwanted attention to the attendees during an exhibition. But it is a common occurrence in a trade show due to constant conversations among the businesses and attendees.

To save the say to the attendees, you can offer them a lip balm. They will be thankful to you to keep them from the embarrassment caused by chapped lips. Apart from being a handy solution to chapped lips, a lip balm also has a longer shelf life which makes it a cost-effective promo item for tradeshow and you can reuse it in different exhibitions.

3. Power Bank

Smartphones are now an integral part of our lives. The faster internet speed and a growing number of apps have increased the screen time of the people. According to a survey by Statista, the majority of people in the world spend five or more than five hours daily on their smartphones.

No wonder so many people run short of battery power in the middle of a trade show. But you can save them from this ordeal by giving away a power bank that will keep their smartphone charged while they are busy browsing your products. And when they move with the giveaway, they will be doing an advertisement for your company.

4. Lanyard

Trade show organizers don’t always provide this important item that carries an identity card which means you have room to market your brand. What you can do is offer a lanyard with custom made patches of your company that the attendees can hang like an employee card.

In this way, you will let the attendees spread the word of your business as people will see the name and logo of your company on the lanyard.

5. Product Sample

What can be a better way to promote your brand than gifting your leads a product sample of your original product? A trade fair is your chance to attract thousands of leads who might turn out to be your customers. With a product sample, you can demonstrate them the exact features of your products and tell them the advantages that your products have over other similar products.

6. Disposable Cup

Disposable cups are a common sight in a trade show. They are both fancy and functional. And they are incredibly economical as compared to other promo items. Your prospective clients will be carrying these cups in the entire hall, and the logo and name of your company will be catching eyeballs.

7. Microfiber Cloth

A microfiber cloth can be another viable promo product that can make an excellent giveaway for your business at an exhibition. The good thing about this promo item is that it can be placed under a pamphlet or brochure which means you will be making a creative offer to your clients that they like to share with their social circles and eventually promoting your brand to more people.

All you need to do is create custom embroidered patches on the cloth to let people know about the brand identity of your business.

8. Smartphone Wallet

Roaming in a trade show can be a worrisome thing for your prospective customers as they can miss their valuable belongings in the hustle and bustle of the event. This is where you can come to their rescue by offering them a smartphone wallet where they can put valuable things like credit cards, driver’s license, and identity card, etc.

9. USB Flash Drive

USB flash drives are fancy and chic, and they can make lives easier for the people by helping them transfer their valuable data in a matter of seconds. In other words, they give a strong reason for the people to keep you top on their memory while they do the data transfer.

You too can gift your customers a flash USB drive in different colors with the brand identity of your company. Every time they will take it out, they will show the customized logo of your company to the onlookers and give free publicity to your business.

10 .Mesh Cap

Imagine thousands of people wearing a mesh cap with the logo of your company. A mesh cap with custom patches for hats can instantly catch the attention of the onlookers and create a connection with your brand if you use the right combination of colors and design in the cap.

11. Pop Socket

A pop socket is a new product as a promo item. It is a favorite promo product for businesses due to its usefulness and economical value. A pop socket can come handy to your prospective customers while they are texting or watching a live video. So you will be adding value in their life, and they will remember you for this wonderful promo product.

12. Padfolio

This is also a new entry in the list of giveaways you can offer in a trade show. A padfolio can be an apt gift for the attendees who will arrive at the exhibition to jot down the important points of a product demo or personal meeting with a sales representative.

With padfolio of the logo of your company, you will give them an easy way to note down the highlights of your product and let them do the advertising of your business as well.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

3479
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
