The end of summer is nigh – and we all know what the means. It will soon be time for learners to go back to school, college, or university. It’s an exciting time for staff and parents, too. It’s the time of year when there’s a definite line between what’s been before and what’s coming next – and new beginnings always seem possible. This applies equally to any of your marketing plans. ‘Back to school’ is a great chance to reassess or upgrade and, particularly, to think about investing in new branded school items.
Branded marketing items for schools and other educational establishments or organizations are important. They’re not just ‘for show’. Like any other sort of team, a level of visual consistency is highly desirable for psychological reasons. It focuses mentality, reminds people that there is a common goal and reassures people that they belong. Making sure everyone feels like they’re part of something is as important in education as it is in other walks of life. Community is a great environment for learners, and one way to generate this is to provide items which have the logo of your institution on them.
EverythingBranded stocks a large selection of promotional products for schools, colleges and universities, and they’re perfect for use in giveaways during freshers’ fairs, open days or at community events. They’re also great to donate, or sell, for any fundraising activities all the way through the academic year and beyond. Promo items can also be offered for sale, so that parents and learners can stock up on school-related branded products. In addition, any outsourced provider might like to offer some form of promotional material during their courses – for example, experts coming in to talk to learners about road awareness.
There are literally hundreds of diverse products you could choose to use for your promotional activities, so take a browse of the website and see. Items such as custom pens and promotional stationery are great choices as these are things people want to use on a day-to-day basis and offering something useful is a smart move. There are many different types of pens available, some of them in many different colors which means that you’ll be able to closely match your school’s already existing brand identity.
If you really want to make a statement, you could provide eco-friendly options such as pens or drink cups made from recyclable or low-impact sustainables. There are plenty of socially conscious product choices available from EverythingBranded. Paying a little bit more for eco products is worth it – for the wider effects, but also for the demonstration of your school’s commitment to issues which are going to become increasingly important for new generations.
