The Power of Promotional Products: How to Successfully Send SWAG to Influencers
By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Sending out the right promotional products to people typically has the desired effect: when people receive a product with a company’s logo or message on it, they are more likely to remember the brand and think of it in the future. This can be especially valuable, however, in the case of influencer marketing.
Since influencers often have a dedicated and engaged following, their viewers often look at product endorsements as a “word of mouth” review. Studies recently revealed that “61% of consumers trust influencer recommendations, compared to 38% who trust brand-produced content“. And, by sending your company SWAG to the right influencer, you can increase your brand awareness with an entirely new audience segment.
Influencer Marketing Will Help Your Company:
- Increase brand awareness: Giving away branded merchandise can help to increase brand visibility and awareness among the influencer’s followers.
- Improve authentic product placement: Influencers are able to use and showcase the product in a natural and authentic way, making it more likely that their followers will be interested in purchasing the product themselves.
- Increase credibility: Partnering with influencers and incorporating promotional products into their content can lend credibility to a brand and help to build trust with the influencer’s followers.
SOBO Can Help:
- Identify the right influencers: Look for influencers who align with your brand values and have a following that matches your target audience.
- Choose the right products: Select promotional products that will appeal to the influencer’s followers and that can be incorporated into their content in a natural and authentic way.
- Create a clear call-to-action: Encourage the influencer’s followers to visit your website or make a purchase by including a clear call-to-action in the influencer’s content such as QR code or links.
