So often we produce USB’s for clients because they are a useful item that everyone needs and uses. They are also a perfect handout to give at a tradeshow or as a follow up to a presentation. This is especially true if you have a lot of information to share but they don’t have loads of room to haul paper back with them from a tradeshow. You will be considered as an eco-friendly supplier/vendor and both they and their backs will appreciate you thinking of their comfort!
It is always a good idea to start your search for a useful tool to give clients by thinking first about your specific industry. Look for something that will enhance or reiterate your message. For example, if you are an auto glass shop you may want to give an emergency hammer that breaks glass in case of an emergency.
Whether your clients hang out at the beach, in the woods or in their own backyard, there are appropriate gifts for all occasions that you can choose from. Making sure you are part of their leisure time ensures you and your product are part of those cherished memories.
