With our high quality collection of innovative promotional products, your brand will be sure to make a splash at the next event. When it comes to brand marketing, you can count on your two biggest allies: GoPromotional, and your imagination.

What makes promotional products so popular?

When you take an item, such as a USB flash drive, and brand it with a company logo or slogan, with the purpose of giving it away, that’s a promotional product! This branded merchandise is used to improve your marketing campaign and boost your brand’s presence. With custom promotional gifts, you can raise brand awareness and increase sales. Your customers will also love receiving gifts, leading to increased loyalty.

This is a tried and tested marketing tactic, and you don’t have to take our word for it – it’s already been proven. Research conducted by the British Promotional Merchandise Association has determined 81% of promotional product recipients keep their gift in regular use for two years or more.

That’s two years of exposure! Anyone who sees that product in use, worn, or on a colleague’s desk will see your brand. Multiply that a hundred or a thousand times, and that’s a major increase in awareness. Don’t forget that branded items are twice as powerful as typical advertising when it comes to encouraging consumer action. With our UK custom merchandising solutions you won’t just attract a current customer’s return business, you’ll make new ones too.

The science behind it isn’t complicated: unlike most advertising methods, you can’t close, mute, turn off, or hide promotional giveaways. By having your brand occupy tangible space, you make it that much more real and undeniable. That goes double for items that will see frequent use in public and shared spaces. Wherever a promotional gift recipient goes, they’ll be reminded of your company, and so will the people around them.

Gifting branded merchandise is a way to contact consumers with your message. Take promotional mugs for example, even the simplest action, like drinking a coffee, can become an asset to your marketing if you use them as promotional product giveaways. Think about it: who wouldn’t want their product to be associated with something so uplifting? It suggests your brand is just as reliable as a hot coffee in the morning.

Custom branded giveaways for any budget

If you’re all out of inspiration, or if you’re not certain what product will appeal best to your specific audience, we have ideas to spare. There are always the classic printed giveaway items – printed tote bags and branded travel mugs, and the ever popular ballpoint pen – but there’s so much more, and we’re here to help.

Desk and office essentials are always popular, but not everyone is trying to attract the office crowd. The truth is, every promotional product idea is a winner. It just needs to be paired with the right demographic. It doesn’t matter what your budget is, which industry you occupy, or the occasion; we’re ready for anything. Home improvers, techies, athletes, students, parents, outdoorsy types, and more are all reachable with GoPromotional. We’ve got something for everyone.

From the very initial enquiry through to delivery, the team were professional, polite and exceptionally efficient - I have dealt with many other companies in the past and their service did not come close to that which I received. I will be using them again for future conferences, events and exhibitions!

David Reynolds

It really was a pleasure to deal with this company. From my initital request they were very reliable and provided in-depth product knowledge, with outstanding customer service and never tried to force a sale! The products we selected were great, the artwork perfect, and the prices competitive!!
