Promotional Products Make an Impression


Global Advertising Specialty Impressions Study, V. 4
By Larry Basinait

For this section, the average number of impressions each promotional product receives was calculated. The number of impressions a product makes was derived from multiplying how long a recipient has the product to how many people he comes into contact with each month while using it.

In the U.S., we again saw that bags generated the most impressions (5,983) of any item in the study. That's because bags are frequently used, often in public places where they can be seen by many people. Other items that deliver extremely high numbers of impressions in the U.S. include writing instruments, caps, outerwear, calendars and shirts.

The accompanying charts illustrate the top five products, by country, that deliver the most impressions:

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Promotional products, also known as ad specialties, make up a $20.5 billion dollar industry and are used by virtually every business in America. Why? Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
