Editor's Note: This blog was originally published in May of 2015 and has since been updated to align with promotional and technological trends.
The technology industry always seems to be ahead of the game in just about every aspect, including the marketing world! I'm seeing it firsthand; technology related promotional products are some of Delta's most requested items. I think it's because tech items are actually useful and relevant to just about everyone. I don't know about you, but I'd rather receive a branded smartphone accessory over a cheap pen that I'll wind up throwing out in a matter of weeks.
Take this real life example: One of my college clients, UMass Lowell, ordered custom phone cases to promote their Sexual Violence & Education program. Needless to say, the tech related products were a hit among students! This case proves that technology promotional products have huge potential for your brand due to their relevance in our tech-obsessed society.
As is to be expected in the technology world, new products are surfacing each day. I’ve made a list of the top 10 technology promotional products I recommend you order to make for an impactful marketing strategy.
1. Custom Power Bank
Isn’t it frustrating when your phone is about to die and you forgot your charger at home? Custom power banks are great promotional tech items because they have the ability to charge smartphones and MP3 players on-the-go! Battery powered, this item doesn’t need to be plugged in to charge your mobile device.
2. Personalized Earbuds in Case
I can’t bring my earbuds anywhere without them getting tangled! Your clients will appreciate these earbuds in a personalized case because it will save them the frustration of untying knots in their headphone wires. The clear top case provides optimal room and visibility for your multicolored logo.
3. Promotional USB Flash Drive Bracelet
Small flash drives can be hard to keep track of, which is why this promotional USB flash drive bracelet is perfect for people on-the-go. Keep your most needed files easily accessible with your silk screened logo featured on the memory key. In my opinion, this item is also a perfect giveaway for college and law firms.
