Personalisation: The Key to Successful Promo Marketing

By now, as you may have noticed, personalisation is vital in today’s marketing world. You must personalise and customise every interaction, whether physical or digital, that your brand has with your customers or audience as much as possible.

Therefore, the gathering and careful analysis of small and big data provides marketers and brand owners like you with a clear picture of how, when and why to approach your customers in order to serve them with the information they’re looking for at the time they need it the most.

Gather as Much Customer Data as Possible

Current customers, new clients, prospects, new employees, old employees, and business partners – in essence, you must know extremely well whoever is going to receive your promo merch strategy. Use every channel of data available to create a detailed profile of your target so you can deliver the goodies they’ll love and use in their daily life.

This process of gathering and processing data pays off tremendously and it’s already required for your entire marketing strategy, so the info is already there; you might as well take full advantage of it.

Synergise with Other Channels

As we mentioned earlier, promo products are part of your entire marketing effort. Thus, their existence must be synchronised with the rest of your marketing actions. It must also support those other actions, and vice versa.

Opportunities to do this are only limited by your creativity. Some examples include CTA’s for social media actions, landing pages and contests.

Why using promotional products is a good idea?

Consider Each Stage of Your Customer Journey

From leads to prospects and even regular customers, you must take into consideration where each one is on their particular journey. This will be a determining factor in how you approach them from a promo merch point of view.

You can achieve outstanding results in brand awareness, brand recognition, customer loyalty, leads, and conversions, not to mention a great effect on employee satisfaction, with a well-developed, personalised promotional marketing campaign/strategy.

Design your promotional marketing strategy with an expert

Constantly Update and Refine

Each promotional product campaign is a chance to learn and improve. During your planning stage, define which KPIs you’re going to be measuring throughout the project. Once the campaign has concluded, gather all your data and perform a deep analysis so you can improve your next move.
