The biggest advantage that advertising umbrellas has just keeps growing and growing.
Like other advertising products that go for long term publicity, the promotional umbrella sets itself apart as far as value and usefulness. What people doesn’t need or want an umbrella at some point in their lives? There are plenty of chances to hand them out, along with the rather large opportunity that your competitors have probably not bothered with getting publicity umbrellas put together. That gives you a great benefit over everyone else at a particular convention, outdoors event, or even in your own lobby. The climate is almost always perfect for an umbrella giveaway – if it’s too sunny, people will be all over the umbrellas, and if it’s rainy you’ll be hard pressed to have sufficient for everyone. Just watch the climate forecast ahead of time if you have to go through the trouble of packing up and placing advertising umbrellas. You don’t want to haul them along if you don’t have to, after all.
While many advertising products get tossed out and never used, or even looked at, again, people don’t tend to do that with something as useful as an umbrella. Related to the way people use promotional mugs forever, promotional umbrellas have an incredibly long shelf life, as well as being a great gender neutral gift. You do want to focus more towards quality, so that the umbrellas can stand up to being used over long phases of time. The good will of your clients can’t be insured if your umbrella can’t stand up to mild weather, so make sure that you don’t skimp on the materials or durability.
