Us consumers always hunt for the best bargains in stores. Safeguard, a successful product from Procter & Gamble uses a variety of cheap promotional items to further promote its brand. As marketers, we try to veer away from “cheap” items because we often associate low cost with low quality. But, this isn’t the case with Safeguard’s promo giveaways.

Cheap Promotional Items

Brand Promotion: Cheap Promotional Items from Safeguard

The difference between Safeguard’s customer giveaways and some other cheap promotional items is quality. In this specific case, the term “value for money” can also be used. These small items are not expensive to manufacture at all. Given the cost of these cosmetics, the on-pack freebie can’t be too expensive or it will drive the cost up for the purchasing price. Cheap promotional items save you money while boosting your marketing strategy, making such promotional campaigns cost-effective and profit maximising.

  • Variety – With a high concentration of promotional gimmicks on the market, consumers are often bombarded with products. This is why we find Safeguard’s cheap promotional merchandise to be an effective one. It gives consumers the liberty to choose from the available promo gifts. The strategy successfully attracts more consumers. As a result, this leads to higher sales.
  • Customer Loyalty – When customers frequently receive free items from the brand, they feel that they get more from their regular purchases. With such promotions, consumers feel that they are getting a more valued bundle compared to other brands. Thus, people will always remember your brand. This also helps a lot in attracting and keeping first-time customers loyal to your brand.
  • Cost-effective – Lastly, these items are inexpensive, and this is the main reason we love these items. This proves that we can drive consumers to the brand in a cost-effective way. Also, buying wholesale promotional items will help maximise profits even more.
