Sharable promotions: spread the goodwill (and company logo)

Service companies such as office equipment repair, snow-removal contractors, printing businesses and moving and painting firms, do well with sharable promotional products.

They can be used as a gesture of appreciation (thank you for choosing us), and then serve as a reminder—to the entire staff--to recommend or use your services next time too.


These gifts typically include candies, nuts or gourmet food -– but the real benefit comes with the packaging. Gumball machines, for example, are great promotional items that everyone in the recipient office can see, enjoy and use—providing a constant and convenient visual reminder of your company. Whether you choose the traditional or jukebox design, gumball machines are bright, feel-good displays and if you are able to have them placed in a high-traffic area (such a reception room or hallway), people from outside the company can see your logo and contact information.

The reusable nature of popcorn tins will help keep your corporate name in view long after the popcorn has been shared by all. Two and 3.5 gallon popcorn tins provide a great snack for weight-conscious office-workers, and the sturdy tin (with your slogan and contact information) can be used for other treats or a dried flower display later on.
