AdNews article – While Real Mail works Better than Ever

There was an interesting article in AdNews,  talking about the effectiveness of real (physical mail).

Some of the main points are –

  • Over 92% of recipients open direct mail
  • It remains in the home for some 38 days
  • Ability to connect with the 5 senses (touch, smell, sight, taste, sound)
  • Due to online shopping, people are checking their letterboxes more
  • Human touch is a powerful form of non-verbal communication and triggers memory neuroscience stimulants

Biodegradable Custom Branded Balloons

Custom branded balloons are a great attention-grabbing promotional item used at trade shows, product launches, corporate parties and handed out as souvenirs. However, with the growing negative perception around single-use plastics and its environmental effects, their use has come under question.

However promotional balloons made of rubber or latex are made from the sap of the rubber plant (Hevea brasiliensis), and are 100% biodegradable. Broken down by water and sunlight at approximately the same rate as an oak tree leaf.

Market on Your Clients Desk with this 5 Port Charger

Custom branded Technology items make for effective workplace promo items as they deliver utility value to the recipient (often in time of need), and are generally in the right location for when you want your clients to be looking at your brand.

This 5 port charger sits on your client’s desk with up to 5 devices charging at once. With full-colour printing up to 100 mm x 85 mm; there is plenty of marketing real estate to get a great brand message across

How to make your Brand good on the Nose

Marketing is more effective when we evoke strong senses, and the olfactory senses (smell), are amongst the strongest. Through a variety of pleasant scents, these custom branded Reed Diffusers take advantage of this to create awareness for your brand.

Reed diffusers are flame free and require no power source, unlike candles which also create heat and smoke. The willow reeds absorb the fragrance, translocating it upwards before it is dispersed naturally through evaporation into the environment.

They work equally as well in the office or at home, giving your brand a warm, welcoming kind of feel.
