Promotional BIC pens are an internationally recognised brand name and represent a great tool for your next promotional campaign. Personalised BIC pens are writing instruments that apply ink to paper. Promotional BIC pens have a wide range of colours, styles, and materials. They are useful in any industry sector, from schools, universities, education to corporate offices. Add your company logo to a ballpoint or rollerball BIC pen and distribute these high quality branded pens at exhibitions, trade shows, and industry events.
A brand needs a good line of merch to find its way to consumers’ hearts and minds. Whether we’re running a huge corporation or a small startup, branding is everything, and in order to reach as many people as possible, we will need a branded item that’s cost-effective, useful, and recognisable, yet stylish and nice on the eyes. For that purpose, few items can fit better than a BIC pen.
As both avid users and seasoned providers of branded promotional products, we can’t stress just how versatile and useful a BIC pen can be as a branded item. So, in the spirit of helping out our entrepreneurial readers, we’re here to list off all the benefits of corporate printed BIC pens as gifts or merchandise that brands can sell or give away.
BIC, the company, is not new. In fact, it has a history that spans decades, closer to a century, really. And like any other company, BIC has had its ups and downs. But it’s thanks to all of those growing pains that the brand still stands strong today as one of the best-known pen manufacturers.
Imagine sharing an item that comes from such a storied source. Why, it would definitely be a good conversation starter between us and the potential partner. It’s like having a mini-endorsement from a cousin who happens to be a millionaire — wherever we are, with that pen in hand, we’re bound to get results.
And speaking of results, nowadays, virality online (as well as offline) can’t come without some recognition. “Hey, I know that girl! She does those cute videos on TikTok!” Imagine that level of marketing, but applied to an item, and a useful one at that.
Let’s put it another way. No matter what the pen looks like, it’s the three letters and the mascot that sell it. When we see BIC, we know BIC. We recognise BIC. We want to hold BIC in our hands and use it precisely because we’ve recognised it. That kind of marketing can be powerful if used right, which is why it’s no wonder that so many huge brands still opt for BIC promotional pens as branded gifts and corporate merchandise.
One thing that all businesses love is free marketing, if they can get it. After all, if their product becomes popular through word of mouth, it means people are interested in it without getting that extra nudge from commercials and online ads. So, what’s the best recipe for viral marketing via promotional items? Well, it’s simple enough:
Logo branded BIC pens are just what we need for such a tactic. After all, most people use pens, and most people that use pens know what BIC is. With that in mind, we can use an everyday item like a BIC pen to get the word out about our business.
Accountants use pens to crunch numbers and do calculations. Doctors use pens to jot down notes about patients. Teachers use pens to write in their notebooks and grade papers. And some artistic souls use pens as their main tool of creation. A BIC pen can have many, many different uses. Depending on what type of market we’re targeting, we can adjust our BIC pen promotion strategy accordingly.
How many times a day does an average person use a pen? We’ll ballpark it and say “at least once.” Whether it’s for signing an important document or receiving a parcel in the mail, or even writing a poem in those rare moments of respite, we need a pen in our home for those little tasks.
There’s a reason why so many households have entire tins of pens and pencils at the ready. BIC or not, a pen is an everyday item, similar to a toothpick or a bar of soap. And it’s because we need pens so much that they make such effective brand gifts.
This point sort of melds with the first two, but on a different level. When people see that we use a brand-name pen as a promotional gift, that already gives off an air of professionalism and trust, and with a company like BIC, it goes deeper than that. Namely, it’s what we like to call “respect by association.”
As the article stated earlier, BIC is an old company with a trusted level of quality to it. The brand already has a lot of respect from both the consumers and the competition. By choosing their pens as our branded merch, we let the client know that we are to be trusted, just like BIC. In other words, a little bit of the brand’s respect trickles down to us.
Over the past few decades, BIC has dedicated itself to clean, eco-friendly business practices. One of them includes creating pens out of recycled plastic. Once again, this point plays into a few of the previous ones. By offering our clients printed BIC pens, we don’t only show our propensity for cooperating with famed brands, but we illustrate by example just how committed we are to saving the planet. Well, that’s roughly it about BIC pens; they’re reliable, useful, and not even that expensive.
