These items have the ability to appeal to a wide-range of promotional marketing uses:  health and fitness programs, employee incentives, customer gifts, and purchase incentives to name a few. Their usefulness and popularity ensure they will be appreciated and valued.

The Smart Tags can also be a useful item for tagging expensive company equipment used by field techs. It’s a great way to ensure equipment doesn’t get left behind at the site.

Prices are very competitive and in some cases, much less expensive than the name brands. We’ve been surprised to find some of these items at less than half the cost of retail brands. We’re even finding additional features such as remote picture taking and alarms for notifying if you’ve left your phone behind.

These items not only have that “wow” factor, they have a high perceived value. Anyone receiving one is sure to appreciate the gift as well as find it highly useful. All important factors to keeping your brand top of mind.

Character Marketing – An Emotional Connection

Character Marketing – We’ve all grown up with them, and see them in action nearly every day – mascots and characters representing a brand. Some, like the Aflac duck or the Geico gecko, have helped propel a company’s brand recognition. Others, like the McDonald’s Happy, a grinning Happy Meal box, came across as creepy, rather than fun and inviting.

Characters aren’t just for kids. They can appeal to a wide audience and help to strengthen the brand recognition and appeal.

A strong character or mascot can bring value to your marketing plan:

• Create media exposure and excitement

• Generate goodwill for your brand

• Provide a voice for the company’s social conscience

• Create a rallying icon for community identification

• Provide tie-in identification at point of sale and to sell products

According to Artistic Toy, a top supplier of plush characters, it’s important to develop an emotional connection to your character or mascot. This can be done by creating a story about the character. Explain it’s vulnerabilities, sources of conflict and connect it to your brand. Know what your character represents and use that to elicit an emotional response with your audience.
