ADVERTISING ALERT: Never Leave Home without Your Company’s Promotional Pens

“Does anyone have a pen?”

I couldn’t begin to fathom how many times I’ve been out and about and heard someone utter that phrase. And you know what? You’d be surprised how many times the answer is no! Millions upon millions of companies have personalized pens, so why must people go without a writing utensil when they need to write down an important event or detail? It seems inexcusable.

Do you own a business? Do you have company pens printed with your logo and contact info? Help prevent this unfortunate pen tragedy by bringing plenty of those promotional pens with you everywhere you go! If you line your pockets or purses in such a fashion, then you’re sure to be some sort of hero the next time someone asks that once-dreaded question. PLUS, this tactic gives you the obvious benefit of saying: “I don’t need that back – you can keep it.” You may even be able to squeeze in a marketing pitch or two if you work up to it…and then your potential customer(s) will be able to call you if/when they need what you offer!

In a previous blog post, “ADVERTISING ALERT: Leave Your Company’s Promotional Pens at the Post Office,” I mentioned the possibility of scattering your company pens on the counters of your local post office. Basically, I’d like to encourage you to use your imprinted pens in a proactive fashion; don’t limit your custom pen supply to the pencil cups in your office building and wait for people to come in to snag them! You need to think of new ways to get your promotional pens into the hands of prospective clients if you want to majorly increase the impact and reach of your promo advertising!

    What a great way to promote a business. Someone is always asking “can I borrow your pen” and I’m reluctant to give it to them because I usually don’t get it back but, if I have my logo on it it’s a “win win” situation. Thanks

    Thanks, James – I’m glad you got something out of this post! If there’s one thing I understand, it’s that people tend to “forget” that they have borrowed your pen and then you never see it again. I figured that this could be used to a company’s advantage! Promotional pens aren’t very expensive, so what do you have to lose? Good luck! 🙂
