Hiring A Promotional Product Consultant
When selecting someone for your promotional needs, explore your options by researching the prospective companies’ websites. Look at how they represent and promote themselves to you, the client, which should reflect how effectively they will represent and promote your business.
Here are some other important considerations when selecting your promoter:
1. Personalized Service
Your time is valuable; look for a company that understands the demands of your business and works with you to maximize visibility and productivity. Some have mobile consultants to help accommodate your needs at your convenience. Ensure your business’ individual promotional needs are identified and met for maximized impact by the plan they present to you. They should have a clear, well-formed long-term plan, and be able to demonstrate how their plan will affect your business’ success.
Personalized service also includes a strong, demonstrated commitment to client confidentiality. The right promoter will ensure that your plan is unique to your business.
2. Expert Advice
Find out how long the promotional business has been operating and what experience the consultants have. An established company with a background in promotional products, placement and incentives will give the company a solid knowledge of protional strategy, as well as a network of suppliers and other connections that will benefit your business.
3. Fresh Ideas
You want a company that is able to service all of your promotional needs. Pick a promotional partner able to provide you with new, innovative products from industry-leading suppliers as well as unique and effective incentives for drawing new business or enhancing performance.
4. Quality Products
Look for a promotional business that can provide not only a variety of catalogues, but also samples of products and advertising solutions they have used in the past with success.
5. Valuable Reputation
When shopping for a company to provide your promotional items, look for accreditation with a professional association such as Promotional Product Professionals of Canada. Companies with these affiliations benefit from the ability to network with other promotional companies as well as suppliers. Membership in such an organization can also mean higher quality and more competitive pricing for promotional products and services.
