Promotional Products: Spotlight on Automotive

The success of a promotional product often boils down to one thing: usability. So when it comes to picking the right product for your next promotional item, look for something that has a practical use for a broad range of people. That’s why this month we’re focusing on automotive-based promotional products. There are an estimated 253 million cars and trucks on American roads – with the adult population around 243 million there’s more cars than people over 18 in this country. Talk about broad appeal!
Automotive-based promotional products are highly usable, have a broad appeal, and are sure to make a regular impression with customers. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular and trending options:

  1. Sunshades – I never fully appreciated the appeal of sunshade until I moved to the desert. Now they are an indispensable part of my driving routine. Even short stops justify their use – and have saved me from burning my hands with scalding-hot seatbelt clips countless times. Sunshades are regularly used and create free advertising in parking lots across the country.
  2. Safety Kits – Between dead batteries, snowy roads, and flat tires; every car owner has need of some basic safety gear. These handy kits include things like jumper cables, bungee cords, flashlights, rain jackets, strobe lights, and more. I have a small promotional safety kit in the trunk of my car; it’s been there for years and you can bet I’ll be thankful the time comes to put it to use.
  3. License Plate Frames – Maybe not the most original of promotional ideas, but their popular for a reason. Custom printed license plate frames make a great tool for getting your business name out there – especially in busy traffic!
  4. Phone Mounts – Fusion Group USA offers a wide range of phone and GPS mounts – including vent clip, magnetic, and dash-mount. While touch screen may be the future, the average car on the road is over 11 years old – meaning that plenty of customers are looking for creative ways to incorporate their tech into their car driving experience.
  5. Bumper Stickers – Another promotional classic, bumper stickers provide a huge impact for pennies. These classic marketing tools are still popular because they work and they cost a fraction of many other option. Don’t be scared away because of their popularity – jump on the bumper sticker bandwagon with everyone else!
  6. Air Freshener – I know, they don’t have the best reputation. But air fresheners have come a long way from the gag-inducing pine trees of old. Modern air fresheners come in a staggering array of flavor options – while custom die-cutting options give your opportunity to think outside the pine tree shape.
