It would be fair to think that promotional stress balls are low cost promotional gifts. They are. Promotional gifts do not need to be expensive to achieve excellent results. Stress toys – cheap – yes!
That is exactly their strength and here I will show you why.
A few months ago I was contacted by a friend of mine who is a lawyer. He was looking for promotional gifts to promote his law firm at a ritzy event his firm was sponsoring.
As the event was being held at the Ritz in London the gift had to be good. The cost of the venue had already eaten away substantially at his budget so he did not have a lot of money to spend. They were expecting 500 guests.
Now being invited to such a nice venue with complementary canapes, dinner and drink was a gift in itself. Who wouldn’t want to be part of such a nice evening? Realising this and the fact that he was low on funds I recommended promotional stress relievers.
He and his colleagues laughed. They couldn’t possibly hand out promotional stress relievers to their guests! Nice metal clocks, cufflinks, promotional gift pens – maybe, but stress balls?
I pushed my idea further. Promotional stress toys were inexpensive, metal clocks and personalised cufflinks weren’t.
“What if you were to place a mobile phone holder stressball at each dinner place setting.” I suggested. “Each could be of the highest quality, printed with your firm’s logo and tagline along with your telephone number and web address.”
He and his colleagues were not convinced but as money was an issue they agreed.
When the big night arrived, the stress balls were all in place. By the time the guests sat down to dinner they had already had a few canapes and cocktails. The stressball mobile phone holders soon caught their eyes.
People were deep in discussion squeezing their new gifts as they did. The stress toys were both eye-catching and fun. They were much more entertaining than a couple of cheap cufflink and as they were made to hold a mobile on the desktop, they had a much better chance of promoting my friends firm daily for a long time.
Have you ever considered promotional mobile phone stress balls? Have you ever held a good quality stress ball in your hand? If not, why not ask for a sample and see for yourself why these fun promotional items are so popular.
