4 ways to use umbrella giveaways

  • Help customers make a style statement with on-trend umbrella giveaways
  • Provide promotional umbrellas as photo-op props
  • Remind customers of upcoming golf outings with a golf umbrella
  • Use branded umbrellas as fanciful event décor

 

Umbrella giveaways are among the most popular promo items for any occasion. They are also one of the longest-kept promotional products. According to the 2020 ASI Global Ad Impressions Study, they are kept an average of 14 months (PDF). Each umbrella generates more than 1,100 impressions, making them an excellent tool for your brand.

Here are four promotional giveaway ideas—besides shielding from the sun and rain—to use these popular items.

 

Help customers make a style statement with on-trend umbrella giveaways

If your customers love to make a stylish statement, a carefully selected umbrella giveaway makes a perfect business gift. The ShedRain Fashion Print Auto Open/Close Compact Umbrella and Auto Open Palm Print Umbrella are two fantastic fashion accessories and will make any outfit pop.

Provide promotional umbrellas as photo-op props

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 a ShedRain Super Mini Umbrella – Rainbow 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.

Use branded umbrellas as fanciful event décor

As every event planner knows, coming up with creative event décor has its challenges. Brightly colored umbrellas serve as striking 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 or propped in corners. At the end of the event, hand it out to attendees as an event memento. Every time they use their umbrella giveaway, 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 umbrella giveaways a go. The possibilities are almost endless. Let your imagination run wild!
