Leather Conference Folders & Promotional Bottled Water – Why They Make Great Promotional Gifts

Leather Conference Folders & Promotional Bottled Water – Why They Make Great Promotional Gifts

At your next Conference will you target your product or service by giving delegates a Leather Conference Folder or do you target the delegate’s personal care with Promotional Bottled Water? This article discusses both possibilities and then leaves the choice up to you.

When a delegate receives information on the conference they have been invited to it sets the level of expectation immediately. If you contact the person via E.Mail with a PDF map that could be acceptable. However if the information arrives by post along with a relevant Promotional Gift such as a good quality road map or pen then it makes it much more personal. It gives the delegate the impression that they matter and that they can look forward to more pleasant surprises upon arrival. Perception is vital so you must get it right at the outset.

Upon arrival at the event the delegate can expect to pick up a bag with relevant information on where to go, what to do etc. But imagine if when they arrive that the information is presented in a Leather Conference Folder with their initials engraved upon the outer cover? All of a sudden this person feels that they are a valued individual and not just part of the crowd. You can see this for yourself at the next event you attend. Watch what attendees do with a plastic carrier bag, it is usually dropped at the feet of the recipient whilst they remove their coats or sign in. It is then left lying around or discarded entirley. Compare that then to the person whose personalised Leather Conference Folder is treated with care and respect. The folder will be put down carefully on a surface and it will be studied carefully as if it were an important item.

By catering for the attendees personal needs you once again demonstrate a personal touch. Giving each delegate Promotional Bottled Water tells them that you know they will probably get thirsty and you care enough about them to solve that problem. Unlike a pen or keyring this really is all about them and their personal care and not about you and your product. That said of course by branding the Promotional Water Bottle you achieve two wins for the price of one.

So which one you choose is completely up to you. Do you use the Leather Conference Folder or the Promotional Bottled Water? You will be aware that either of these items work well in delivering your message to its intended audience. The water will almost certainly be consumed on site so could be considered as a short term Promotional Item whereas the personalised Leather Conference Folder will definitely be taken back to the office or home and valued as great quality Business Gift.

Personally I believe you should give them both options but then as a Promotional Merchandise supplier that probably won’t surprise your will it?

    Beauty No Longer Skin Deep

    Beauty No Longer Skin Deep

    In an era that’s dominated by Greenpeace and Environmentalists, I wanted to see just how invested in our environmental leaders are in the fashion industry. I wanted to see whether it would even matter to most consumers if an apparel company used organic cotton to make its jeans. If a cosmetics company was

    green, or organic? Does anyone care?

    I asked more than a hundred people, in different e-mail lists and web-sites, and the answers varied more than you might think. Most people said that they didn’t tend to think about their clothing nearly as much as they might their cosmetics. Vicky from Texas said “It’s not that I don’t care, but it’s not something you see designers focusing on.” She went on to say, “some of them do, but not enough to give me good choices.” Bella from New England said “It’s just a matter of cost, if you go green it costs you more green, so you charge more green.”

    People want to be beautiful, and the number of people that don’t want to only be beautiful on the outside is increasing daily. This creates a strange paradox, if I was to follow the old cliché, I would think that strong morals would mean less money for fashion. Yet you have to be financially “well to do” if you want to go green in both clothing and cosmetics. If your pocket book isn’t boiling over you might loose hope!

    Here are some tips for those cheeky kids that know what they want and only need some easy ways to get started.

    It runs an apparel company about 60% – 70% of their total costs to buy their material. So, if you’re a fashionesta with an eye for clothes that scream of moral certitude, look for cheap green fabric and then find out who uses it. Most green material manufacturers will have a page that tells you who uses their product.

    Cosmetics on the other hand are not as easy to find…

    In the US, cosmetics and skin care products aren’t regulated by any group. A company can put pretty much whatever it wants into it’s products. That’s why L’Oreal, Maybelline, and nearly all cosmetic companies based in the US have to make completely different formulations for any country that regulates what chemicals are allowed in skin care products. The formulations sold in the US contain all sorts of nasties, from harmful dyes, preservatives, and chemicals, to all sorts of animal by-products (I won’t say what, but trust me loves, it would curl your toes). A consumer looking for a green, consumer friendly cosmetics company is in for a headache I’m afraid.

    Here are some places to start.

    Gourmet Body Treats – This Green, Vegan, Organic, and Cruelty Free Cosmetics Company based out of Schertz, TX offers amazingly hi-end products for very reasonable prices. Their mineral cosmetics line is award winning, and they have been in business for the better part of a decade.

    Dr. Bronner Soaps – Cruelty free, nor petrochemicals or synthetic ingredients. Made in the USA. They are famous for setting the standard for safe natural cosmetics. They also donate to various charities and social initiatives.

    Aubrey Organics – The original natural cosmetics company started in 1969. This company has won numerous awards for its sustainability and use of natural preservatives and even cooler, they don’t codnuct any animal testing and use minimal packaging.

    Now go out their and start making and Eco Fashion Statement!

The concept is old, but it’s as fresh as it has ever been, and there will always be a need for newly designed drink wares.

    Many modern day marketing professionals neglect the effect of seeing a brand name in an every day setting. The central themes of marketing are just as true today as they were fifty years ago, though, even in the internet age. Brand recognition works. When a consumer sees a brand name on the drink ware accessory product, they take a mental snapshot of the brand. It’s a simple idea, but it will never become outdated.
