Customer-oriented campaigns, professional promotions:
REFLECTS® offers promotional gifts for your projects.

Lend a special touch to the image of your company. Generate additional buying impulses and reinforce customer loyalty. Discover an effective way of running campaigns, promotions and trade fairs in a more professional and successful way.

This is how it works: Usually, sales-promoting campaigns commence with a wide-ranging, cross-media marketing strategy. It then develops into an internal and external communication channel and concludes with the successful sale of the product or service. In particular branding campaigns use all available advertising media.

Promotional gifts have an extremely important role to play here. This is because one of the key problems facing companies today is the flood of information consumers are subject to. Advertising claims must therefore be able to stick out.

This is achieved through promotional gifts, for example, which have a significance for the target group. This way a lasting positive response can be generated for your company at a relatively low financial cost.

If you are looking for a promotional item that suits your advertising campaign and corporate image, you should ask yourself the following questions: What is the image of my company? And how is the soul of my company and our product perceived by the customer?

Three tips for more success:
The right article.

Tip 1:

Position your brand message to your target group in everyday life.

Generate a strong benefit for the consumer and convey positive emotions with your brand. Pens and office accessories are a good example: They are part of our daily lives and are usually used on a daily basis. And almost everyone is familiar with the search for their pen. This illustrates how an object can be emotionally linked to its owner.

Tip 2:

Diligently design your promotional item.

The more carefully a promotional item is planned, designed and presented, the greater the experience for the recipient. 

Tip 3:

Target all the different senses of your target group.

A cross-media campaign involves advertising articles with the aim of achieving the highest possible effect. If you support your advertising message with a haptic experience, you will achieve a lasting effect. Branding to suit the intended product completes the campaign.

Good to know: the appropriate message

Neuroscientists have discovered that the human brain closely links cognition and emotion. Only if the message is classified as personally relevant does it achieve an emotional level and has a lasting effect.

Promotional gifts achieve exactly that: triggering the emotion.

The promotional pen: the undisputed number one.

Pens are the most popular promotional item. When it comes to promotional items, the pen is the undisputed number one.

And even if more and more the trend is towards writing on the computer: The pen is still a favourite.

Many people spend much of their active time at work. Therefore, it makes sense to put your promotional items into the hands of the target customers in the truest sense of the word.

Promotional office accessories are particularly well-suited for promotional purposes, like the most popular promotional item: Personalized, printed or engraved pens and pencils. They have the highest impact and the longest utility values among the target group.  

But even outside the workplace, pens, business card cases, notebooks, desk utensils and such like are appreciated promotional items. Just try it out.

Good to know: hand-written.

A study in the USA has shown that writing by hand increases the understanding of correlations much better than typing. The result of the research: If you write by hand, you will do more thinking.

Emotional advertising always at your fingertips: pens and office accessories.

It is to your advantage.
And your customers benefit.

Good to know: experiencing the world through touch.

Even as an infant, humans discover the world by touching it. This “tactile perception” stays with us even as adults. It makes it easier for us to collect information. Things we touch are grasped in the truest sense of the word. We use our sense of touch to check objects for reality and truth. It is closely linked to our ability to build trust.

What refinement methods are there?

If you choose promotional items by REFLECTS®, remember: our promotional items should be related to your company. This can be achieved with your company logo, a catchy slogan or an advertising message that your target group will remember.

Promotional items by REFLECTS®:
Compliance aspects are not affected.

Often we are being asked questions about the compliance of our promotional items: Will a decision-taker be influenced improperly by a promotional item? Can a promotional item be compared to a gift? Or does a donation improve the personal, economic or legal situation of the recipient?

The Corporate Compliance Working Group takes a clear stand on this issue: Advertising and promotional gifts are  considered “minor gifts” and are thus unobjectionable and problem-free. Their material value is too low. In addition, with these products the advertising message is the main focus. As a result, promotional items are not gifts in the conventional sense.
