Learn More About Flash Drives

 

If you need to advertise, it’s not a bad idea to order a bunch of USB flash drives. You may be thinking…why should I bother? After all, this is a world of Cloud storage and Google Drive. Aren’t promotional flash drives kind of old-fashioned?

In short, no. Everybody should back up their files on a USB drive because technology fails all the time. It would be devastating to lose Word docs, photos, or music simply because you didn’t have a backup.

Flash drives also happen to be a great advertising opportunity for businesses, especially those who work in technology, education, or finance. Here are the industries that should definitely use some of their marketing budget to order custom flash drives in bulk.

Technology

You work with computers all day, which make custom flash drives the perfect pairing for your industry. Print your tech company’s logo on the front, and you can then use these flash drives as trade show giveaways or to promote new product launches.

Education

Whether they’re for fundraisers, orientation night, or recruiting new students, your school can get a ton of use from promotional flash drives. Look for USBs that come in your school colors, and be sure to keep extras in the bookstore for your students to purchase.

Photography

The best custom flash drives for photographers have a high capacity. There should be enough gigabytes for your thousands of photos, so it’s easier to sift through all of the images in one spot. You can later delete anything that’s blurry or where your subjects have their eyes closed!

Art & Design

Some artists still like to paint or draw on paper, but many are now using stylus pens and tablets to create their masterpieces. If that sounds like you, save your portfolio on custom USB flash drives. These drives come in handy for animators, graphic designers, comic book illustrators, and any other artist that relies on technology.

Advisors, bankers, analysts, accountants, and anyone else who works with money should keep digital records of receipts and transactions. Back these up on promotional flash drives that are printed with your company logo. Your clients will feel better knowing that you’re always double checking your numbers.

Music & Entertainment

CDs and vinyl records are long gone, and most musicians are uploading their songs to Spotify or Soundcloud. For that reason, the music and entertainment industry should use custom USB flash drives. A wearable flash drive is best since it won’t get in the way when you’re strumming your guitar, pouring your heart out on the microphone, or banging on the drums.

Law Firms

Cheap flash drives are fine, but if you’re a lawyer you want your clients to think of you as more high-end. Skip the plastic USBs and instead invest in aluminum flash drives. You can have all of your client information ready to go as you travel from courtroom to courtroom.

Publishing

There’s nothing like holding a good book in your hands, but let’s face it, many people prefer to read ebooks. If you work in publishing, embrace custom flash drives! They’re not only good for clients, but also make editing manuscripts way easier. You can even ask your writers to use them to submit query letters and their first few chapters.

Doctors and nurses have to stay on top of the latest healthcare news. Just look at the COVID-19 pandemic where new information was coming in every day. Be on the top of the game and use logo USB drives to store training manuals, guidelines, and regulations. They might even be useful giveaways for patients when it comes to bloodwork or x-rays.
