There are always interesting myths going around about promotional products. Instead of putting stock into these myths, at South Paw Canada, we want to go over a few of the most common ones we hear and why they aren’t true:
Myth #1: You can’t measure the ROI of your promotional products—Contrary to popular belief, you can in fact measure the return you’re getting when you invest in promotional products. You just have to take the time to do the calculations.
Myth #2: Promotional products are overpriced—Not only is this myth not true, but today, promotional products continue to be one of the most cost-effective methods of advertising out there.
Myth #3: Most people don’t use promotional products—Have you ever met someone who didn’t love free stuff? From pens to tote bags and mugs, promotional products are things people use on a daily basis.
Myth #4: It’s best to go with the cheapest promotional products you can find—Although there’s nothing wrong with getting a great deal, there’s something to be said for investing in promotional products that will last.
