Bespoke Branded Products For The Savvy Student

As a former student, I know how great it feels when we are given free gifts, especially when they are useful and unique to us. Here are some great ideas for promotional giveaways aimed at students;

Clothing

Comfy clothes are a big hit, whether lounging around the halls or headed to the library to study. Think two-tone hoodies, oversized t-shirts, beanie hats. Branded Items of clothing are the perfect product to market to students as your brand will be seen in lectures, cafes, and all over campus.

Kitchen Items

We recently worked with a Casino chain on a giveaway item for fresher’s week, and came up with the idea of a fridge magnet which doubled up as a bottle opener. We made the design an Ace of Spade to fit in with the casino theme. A prime example of a useful promotional product, that will expose your brand endlessly. Other useful products are travel flask, tea towel or mug; students often take coffee to University (to save on cash) and many have people round at halls for tea, which leads to extra exposure for your brand.

Stationary

The stalwart of the promotional merchandise industry! People who study, need stationary. You can never have too many pens! If you want to deviate from the norm, then eraser, pencils, highlighters, stationery box sets, sharpeners or notepads & diaries will all ensure your brand has maximum exposure.

Tote Bags

Simply a life saver, and extremely popular. Seeing students with a cotton bag over their shoulder was a daily occurrence, often filled with books, shopping or sports kit. Placing your brand on a bag & giving them away to students will ensure you are seen time & time again.

Which promotional products do you think work well? You could stay safe with promotional pens, or go out-there with branded condoms! Whichever product you choose, make sure you increase brand awareness and reach out to the student market.

By using unique, bespoke promotional items that your competitors are not, you are “Saying more” than your rivals. The more ways you advertise, the more likely new business can come your way allowing your company to thrive and “Be More”, hence how “Say More, Be More” came to life.

Why do you need to use a tagline?

Powerful branding

 

branded-power-bank

 

We’ve all been there, you go to make a call, check your email or browse the internet only to find that your mobile’s battery has run out! Portable power bank chargers have become an increasingly popular gadget for smartphone & portable device users. Companies worldwide are tapping into this lucrative market by branding power bank chargers for promotional giveaways.

Smartphone unit sales are expected to exceed 2.35 billion by 2019 (ABI Research). The need for accessories, and in particular portable power chargers, will grow significantly. A recent YouGov survey of 2,000 people found that 60 per cent of people claim they have a smartphone battery that doesn’t last a day.

We have over 50 different styles in our product range, and they come with different levels of mAh, which is power. They range from 1,800mAh – 50,000mAh. Typically, a 5,000mAh power bank charger will charge an iPhone 6 twice, before it needs recharging. All our products are supplied with a micro USB cable for attaching the user’s device to the power bank. Minimum order quantities start at 50 units, and prices start at around £4.95 + VAT (includes all printing & delivery costs).

We have produced branded power banks for local companies such as Car Shop, Aspers and Logistex, along with customers further afield such as Battersea Power Station, Sheffield & Bolton University, and The English Touring Theatre. Giving a branded power bank to your customer is a great way of ensuring they never lose touch with what matters.

Hassle free brand promotion

 

IMG_6495

 

BMT Promotions has been supplying businesses across the UK with promotional merchandise for the last 8 years and put supply chain management at the centre of their business operation.

Many businesses may invest in branded merchandise at the start of their venture, then as the workload increases it drops down the priority list. In reality this shouldn’t be the case. As your business grows you should promote your brand more.

With advances in printing technologies the variety of available merchandise is not only vast, but also more affordable. The BMT team make it their job to find the right product for their clients’ requirement or marketing activity. They achieve this by understanding the objective of the exercise.

Approximately 6 years ago BMT was let down by a UK supplier. This indirectly lead to them speaking to a manufacturer in China, which looking back was a significant turning point for the business.

Dealing with this particular manufacturer opened the door to a twenty strong network of others including an introduction to a specialist manufacturer. BMT now has full control over its supply chain, providing confidence in delivering a great customer experience.

EXAMPLE:

“A recent job was for 500 branded lanyards with card holders costing 75p + VAT (including delivery). They arrived 10 days after the order was placed. Other companies in the UK may turn around the same order quicker, but when the prices were compared they were 42% more expensive on average”

BMT’s buying power and supplier choice can provide some very attractive price points, meaning you don’t have to find lots of extra budget to do some form of promotion. These activities are really well received by clients and your internal team, sometimes putting a little life back into marketing activities.
