When a company decides to advertise, there is usually a target audience or a specific group who would more likely buy a product, or whom the product is generally intended for. When it comes to marketing, there is a myth that many business people believe in—it’s that men are a harder audience to reach, especially with branded merchandise. However, this notion is fading with time. In fact, the male population is very reachable as long as you give out high quality items that will suit their image.
The idea that “being cool” is something that only teenagers and young people aspire to is not completely accurate. Nowadays, even adults want to fit in and be seen as someone who is in tune with the times. Branded merchandise is one way in which adults, even men, can achieve this goal.
Now, which items will probably gain the approval of your male consumers? Well, there is a wide variety of products to choose from. If you’re targeting those who enjoy racing, then you can give out car-shaped keychains; for golfers, you won’t go wrong with golf balls, tees or golf clubs. The key is to get to know your target audience and their interests.
What to Consider
In addition to things that look good, men are interested in products that are practical. Men aren’t usually drawn to aesthetics, so your prospects will probably not appreciate your promotional items unless they serve some purpose—functionality is still the top quality men look for!
Therefore, to grab the attention of your male clients through branded merchandise, you should carefully choose items that will suit them. You should also make sure that the design, including the colour and printed images, isn’t too feminine. Last but not the least, your customised promotional items should be of high quality. If your prospects see that you do not settle for less, then they won’t think twice about buying your products or getting your services.
For a business to succeed, it should carefully choose and cater to a target audience. If your product line is targeted towards men, then your marketing strategy should be directed to them as well. This means that if you decide on using promotional products, you should give out ones that are masculine, practical and can effectively send your message.
