Good to know:
It should be noted that there is a difference between GWP Vs. Giveaways. You need to buy a product or service in order to get the promotional product when using a GWP mechanism. Give-aways are often used as street promotions usually given out by brand ambassadors, hostesses, mascots. However, having recently been on a bike tour and having bought a service, the organiser surprised us with branded water bottles, shoe bags and towels. It was unexpected yet it did not influence my decision to buy the tour. I think this situation qualifies as a give-away and a GWP. Given the higher value of this unexpected gift, it had far more impact than it would have otherwise had, and therefore this is an excellent way of Marketing Gifts.
Many of our clients also ask us what they should opt for. Which would you choose when given the choice of GWP Vs. PWP? It’s a tough one. We certainly love a good free gift, but a Purchase with Purchase promotion is an excellent way for marketing managers to maximise budgets. If done well they pay for themselves and you can do a much higher-quality promotional product. Done well, we certainly push clients to consider PWP very strongly. That being said, for on-pack promotions you are creating a bundle for a gift and this option does not work as efficiently. With PWP promotions, the main risk arises when clients might not choose the item, so therefore it is important to focus on product design. All in all, you need to know your customers and what makes them tick. Finally, create a buzz through promoting a limited production series to minimise the chance of being caught with leftover stock. This also creates an incentive for the consumer to buy the product during a limited period/series run.
