Why Bars Need To Customise Their Swag

If you’ve ever been to a bar, restaurant, or cafe where they have customised items such as promotional straws, coasters or glasses, then you’ll be aware of the power this type of marketing holds. Most people have visual memories without even realising and it’s this kind of subconscious association that using bar promotional products as marketing tools taps into. There are lots of reasons why investing in branded merchandise as part of a marketing strategy is effective and there are many types of products which are suitable for the hospitality and catering industries. Here, we explore some ideas…

Get your logo seen

There are some companies who get a grasp of branding from day dot. These are places that get remembered not only for the in-house experience but also because they know what it means to create a visual memory for their customers. Having your company logo etched across numerous products or places within your establishment – be it a mural on the wall, a custom neon sign or some branded mason jars – is a repeated reminder of their experience wherever they go within the premises.

Who doesn’t like a freebie?

Let’s face it, everyone loves a freebie! When we’re offered a token item upon making a purchase in a shop, visiting a restaurant or becoming a member somewhere, it makes us feel appreciated and welcome. The most loved free gifts are those that customers can use repeatedly and that come in handy in day to day life. A branded giveaway is a reminder of your business every time a customer uses their gift and is a constant reinforcement of your business.
