Promotional umbrellas are among the most popular giveaways for any occasion. When asked, 83 percent of people (PDF) say they find branded umbrellas useful. They are the longest-kept promotional product—an average of 14 months. Each umbrella generates more than 1,300 impressions, making them a great tool for your brand.
Here are four ways—besides to shield from the sun and rain—to use these popular giveaways.
Help customers make a style statement with a smile-worthy umbrella.
If your customers love to make a stylish statement, a carefully selected umbrella makes a perfect business gift. The Polka Dot totes Auto Open/Close Umbrella and Smiles Umbrella are two fantastic fashion accessories and will make any outfit pop.
Provide umbrellas as perfect props for photo ops.
Umbrellas make a picture-perfect addition to any photo shoot—indoors or out. Umbrellas can bring life to an otherwise standard photo op for all customers. For example, add a huge splash of eye-popping color to a red carpet with an Eagle Fiberglass Golf Umbrella and a photo-ready backdrop. Then, let the selfies begin!
Remind customers you’ll meet them on the course.
Build clients’ anticipation (and yours!) for an annual golf outing or their part on a charity team by sending The Legend Umbrella as a creative “Save the Date.” This invitation will show your customers you’ve considered their needs in advance and later serve as a reminder of the event.
Turn branded umbrellas into fanciful event décor.
As every event planner knows, coming up with creative event décor has its challenges. Brightly colored umbrellas serve as striking event décor while boosting your brand. The Retro Umbrella (in a complementary color palette) can be imprinted and then hung from the ceiling, placed on tables and propped in corners. At the end of the event, hand it out to attendees as an event memento. Every time they use the umbrella, they’ll be reminded of the good time they had.
Uses for promotional umbrellas run the gamut.
Umbrellas are an incredibly flexible giveaway. They’re available in a wide variety of colors and make a great backdrop for almost any logo. Whether you’re looking to add style to an existing event, encourage customers to attend a new one or create atmosphere at an event you’re planning, give promotional umbrellas a go. The possibilities are almost endless. Let your imagination run wild!
