Tips for increasing traffic with promotional products

To logo, or not to logo??
While advertising your brand on merchandise is often helpful--sometimes the best way to promote your business is by printing your customer’s name on a nice pen or reusable shopping bag. Then, let them tell their friends where they got it!

Reward referrals.
Encourage customers to refer business to your comapany. Then, thank them with branded rewards like t-shirts, hats, and water bottles.
