Light Up Your Marketing

Too many (way too many) times we hear “I just need something to give away with my logo on it”. It causes us pain. Severe pain. With just a little creativity and thinking outside the box, you can tie your branding or message into the item you are giving away, which greatly increases your ROI. Talking to us about your product, service, event, end users and more will enable us to suggest swag that is not only useful, but the perfect vehicle for your message. Today we are going to look at ways to “light up” your branding while tying it into your product or service.

One of our most popular categories on our website is “Ideas under $3”. With that in mind, let’s look at some inexpensive lights that can be used for a variety of branding purposes.

Keyring flashlights make a great small gift for car dealerships, a way to promote a safety message to students on campus or inexpensive trade show handouts. The classic keylite offers great space for your message. Or choose an option with additional useful features like this keyring flashlight with a bottle opener. Styles such as these flat lights make excellent direct mail pieces or we can afix them to a card or other backer for additional space for your message. For more options under $3, visit our website and enter Flashlight in the search box, then sort by price (low to high).

In addition to bottle openers, there are many flashlights that come with tool options such as this screwdriver set, this LED light multitool or one with an added tapemeasure. Depening on the tools added these can make excelling closing gifts or Realtors, promotional items for the construction industry, or tradeshow giveaways for home improvement shows.

LED or COB bulbs provide brighter light, making these flashlights the perfect swag idea for safety programs or to promote a safety message. And think of all the creative ways you can tie a safety tagline or message into your marketing with these compact, but bright aluminum flashlights or this rechargable tactical light. These COB lights are perfect for keeping in the car. Check out more LED lights we can put your logo on here and COB lights here.

Hands free headlamps aren’t often thought of when thinking about flashlights, but these items can be perfect if your target market is runners, marathoners, mechanics, dog walkers or others that need both hands free, but also need a functional light to work by or just to be safe.

Workplace safety is an important issue to address. Whether you are wanting to reduce lost time accidents, increase awareness of safety issues or just promote general safety, a name brand flashlite such as maglite can do just that. Available in many sizes, alone or in sets, Maglite also make excellent client and employee gifts.

Once you choose your branded flashlight, tying it into your marketing or message is the next step. Check out these tagline and slogans to get you started:

“We make your ________ shine”

“Let us shine a light on YOU (your home, your business, etc).”

“We put you in the spotlight”

“Let us brighten up your home (office, life, teeth, etc)”

“Lumens…we put that s*&^ on everything”

“We aren’t a FLASH in the pan”

“XXX and You. We are brighter together”

“Be Bright. Be Bold. Be Safe”

“Keeping you safe day and night”

“Being prepared is being safe”

“You are the reason we shine”

“See us in a whole new light”

Work From Home Kits For Employees

With the COVID-19 pandemic and the push to flatten the curve to reduce the spread of the virus many companies and businesses are implementing work from home policies for employees and staff. Making this transition as easy possible while maintaining a connection is important.

Work from home kits are a great way to provide employees with tools they need to be productive, yet also still feel like they are part of a team and still connected to the company and their colleagues.

Not everyone already has a home office set up. Selecting items that will make working remotely or from home an easy transition for everyone is the first step. Notebooks and pens are a logical first step. These fun desk in a box kits come prefilled with a variety of useful items that most people don’t have lying around at home. Mouse pads that serve a dual purpose, such as notepad or wireless qi charger, along with a wireless mouse and multi port usb hub could round the kit. Bluetooth speakers that can be used for conference calls (or to help drown out household noise) or bluetooth earbuds and headphones help cut down on distractions and make communicating with team members or clients easier. As they may be spending more time in front of a computer, blue blocker glasses will help relieve eye strain.

This Bluetooth speaker features a built in microphone for hands free calling, perfect for conference calls, webinars or zoom meetings.

Functional items are important, but so is a little fun and creativity to help lighten the mood. How about a fun hat or shirt imprinted with “this is my work from home uniform”? Stress balls and squeeze toys, travel mugs (we can help you personalize those with each individuals name, making it easier to keep up with when they return to work), pedometers to encourage everyone to get outside or to make sure they are getting some exercise each day or something aromatherapy inspired to help ease this stressful situation.

Once you have all your items selected, let’s look at how to package and deliver everything.

Packing all items into a bag is a practical way to deliver the gifts. If employees don’t have a dedicated office space, this offers them a solution to move everything from the kitchen table or living room in the evening to keep all their work safe and in one place. Then when they “commute” back to work in the morning everything is right there in the bag. We can even personalize bags with their name so when they do return to the office they know which bag is theirs. Personalization is available on select bags such as the duffel bag below. Let us know if you would like to see other bags that are available with individual names.

Personalizing the bag with an individual’s name makes this a long lasting and useful item even after they return to the office. This option is available on several of our bag styles.

Another option is printed boxes that can be mailed or shipped directly to each employee. Depending on the items selected, we can insert foam into the box to securely hold items or use other packaging as needed. Already have some swag in your office you would like to include? We can do that as well.

We can kit your items and drop ship directly to each employee so you don’t have to distribute them or have employees come back to the office to pick them up.

Let us help you put together a Remote Work kit that will fit your needs and those of your employees or staff. Call or email today to get started.

Need to get items out quick? Tell us what the most important items are that your employees need help set up their remote office and we find a pre-made kit to help fill those needs.
