Thumbs up Quick Freebie Question

Good morning,

I've got a quick question that's open to all of you, and I would really appreciate your opinion.

We are looking at giving something away to trade customers a promo freebie.

Now the question is what would be useful to you?

A 10% discount voucher, a triangle pencil, mini LED torch, multi tool, bottle opener or something else?

Cheers

the crack pipe/free base torch is a nice touch, but it might draw the wrong type of customers.

Default Flashlights and knifes

When I would do giveaways it was flashlights and knifes. The other thing I did was the giveaways went to the workers not the bosses, that way they went to someone that would use them and not end up in a drawer. Also when they went to the workers it helped when you needed something done in the plant.

I missed the fact that you want to give to trade customers. In that case I would not give a voucher but would go with T-shirts with your company name on it. Gives them a shirt and you get some advertisement

I would go with hi-vis shirts. Most construction sites are requiring them now.
