Have you heard of advertising bugs? They are also known as promotional logo bugs or little rascals and you see them around nowadays in a variety of places. They are great promotional giveaways at tradeshows and exhibitions, product launches, charity events, fundraising fetes, seminars and even corporate days out. AND the great thing about them is that everyone seems to love them whether they are young, old, male or female. They seem to bring a smile to most faces and they come in such a wide range of characters it’s hard not to love them.
If you are looking to create a buzz around your business then advertising bugs are a great place to start. They are not only cute but also purposeful and do a very important job of advertising your company name and logo effectively to the masses. If you have never seen one before then let me describe one. They are small, friendly and furry and come in a variety of personalities including professionals (doctors, fireman, policemen, coast guards etc), fruit and vegetables, animals, characters holding specific things, seasonal bugs, multi- coloured bugs, glitter bugs and action-bugs. The actual bug itself cannot be printed on, but the bug is attached to a ribbon which can be personalised with your company name and logo. People say they literally stick around forever as they stick (via their feet) onto any object and stay there until removed! Quite clever really!
So what are the main advantages of using advertising bugs over other promotional giveaways. Let me enlighten you. Firstly they are small and portable. No bulky purchase here... they are easy to lift, transport and distribute. Secondly, they are inexpensive which is music to most peoples ears. In most cases people can buy a bulk of these personalised characters and then still have money left in the budget to venture out into something different. They are certainly something that most people can afford.
Bugs can also offer a refreshing change to normal promotional products. People expect promotional pens, keyrings, trolley coins and paper products. They don’t expect promotional bugs personalised with your company name and logo. It can be a nice surprise! Let’s face it they are cute and a great gimmick and ones that will make a positive impact and a long lasting impression.
