How to Get your Non-profit Noticed Using Promotional Products

When it comes to getting your non-profit noticed by both individuals and organizations alike, it is important for you to focus on your branding. In order to stand out from all of the other non-profits in the world and, more specifically, in your area then you need to make sure your organization is recognizable. Once you have completed your branding, you need to get it out into the community. There is no better way than to do this through promotional products. These are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Promotional Calendars - You can get a calendar made with your branding on it. The benefit of calendars is that they will be displayed for an entire year ensuring that your non-profit stays in their mind. This is especially a good idea for people who work at companies that match donations. When they are prompted to donate for the match, your non-profit will be staring them in the face. 
  • Drinkware - People love getting cups and water bottles that they can use over and over again. If you want your non-profit to be visible not only to the person using the item then this is a great option. You will be able to reach many more people and trigger a conversation between them. 
  • Bags - Another great item that can be used to increase visibility all around town is a bag. You can have totes, drawstring bags, or even business bags. These can be used in a variety of manners and people will be seeing them all over town. 

You can give away these items at events or at your location. Some examples of events include a golf tournament or a local festival or fair. You may want to get items that are in line with those events too. With the right items for the event and planning, you will have more recognition in the community in no time at all.
