Branding Beat - Cut Through the Noise

Instagram Contest! What’s Your ‘Go-To’ Promo?

Are you on Instagram? What a coincidence! We are, too. We like to share pictures that give some insight into the world of promotional products, but also we just like to share photos of everyday life at our office (spoiler: we love Funkos).

In fact, we love them so much we want to see them all! Well, as many as we can. That’s why we are holding a promo product contest on Instagram! Best part, we’re doing this for a whole month, and each week someone will win a $50 Amazon gift card!

So what exactly do you have to do to win? Easy! Just upload a photo of a promotional product you’ve received before (making sure the logo is visible), and use the hashtag #GoToPromo. It doesn’t have to be one you got from QLP, either. Be sure to tag @qualitylogoproducts in the photo, too. And that’s it! We’ll randomly select winners every week.

So what exactly is a promotional product? We’re almost sure you’ve come across one before. It could’ve been a pen, water bottle, or stress ball, really anything you’ve been given by a company with their logo on it is considered a promotional product.

Official QLP Instagram Contest Rules:

• Upload a photo to Instagram of a promotional product you’ve gotten (with the logo visible) using the hashtag #GoToPromo

• Tell us why you love your promo in the description

• Tag @qualitylogoproducts

• Must be 18 or older to enter

• Void where prohibited

• Not affiliated with Instagram or Facebook, Inc.

• Winners will be emailed an electronic Amazon gift card worth $50

• Ends 4/15/2016


We’ll be sure to share our favorites as the month goes along. Make sure you follow our account to see all the crazy antics we get into every day. Whether it’s a brand new Funko making his/her appearance or a crazy game of Super Smash Bros., you never know what we will be up to!

While we’re busy giving away Amazon gift cards, we also wanted to mention to all of the small businesses out there reading this that we run a monthly contest call Give Your Brand a Hand. If you make $1 million a year or less, you could be eligible to win $500 in free promotional products. Check out the link for more information and enter that contest, too!

If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments section. Otherwise, happy posting and good luck!

Bubba is the Quality Logo Products mascot. He may have started out as "just a stress ball," but he's come a long way since the company's launch in 2003. Bubba has been immortalized in numerous vector artwork designs for internal and external promotions, and you can see him change outfits on the Quality Logo Products homepage whenever a holiday rolls around. Oh, and he thinks pants are for the birds. You can connect with Bubba on

    I LOVE INSTAGRAM! It looks like QLP does too! #workflow. This blog on instagram was very fun. It really got me excited to start my search for a variety of different and unique promotional products and to see how many I could find. I also liked the incentives tied to this contest and this blog lays out all of the guidelines and rules perfectly. Short and sweet and to the point. Everyone loves contests and a chance to win something, and luckily QLP knows most of the world is sucked into social media and instagram on a daily, so what a great tool to use to promote promotional products on a large platform such as instagram. Great blog. Great contest. #winning.

    This is so awesome! Simply because we never get to see anything before it gets shipped out to our clients so seeing them satisfied with the finished goods is a great feeling!! 😀

    Plus, who doesn’t like showing off their brand that puts them in a contest to win an awesome prize?! Sounds like a win-win to me!! I think we should start doing more social media contests to give everyone more incentive to show off some of the sweet things we throw people’s way! I can’t wait to see some of the winners next month!!
