Ordering swag should be easy

In today’s competitive market, standing out is more important than ever. One of the most effective ways to boost your brand’s visibility and create lasting impressions is through promotional products, commonly known as swag. Whether it’s customized t-shirts, branded water bottles, or logo-printed notebooks, swag can significantly enhance your brand recognition and loyalty. 

But how do you go about ordering these products? At The Markey Group, we’ve streamlined the process to make it as easy and stress-free as possible. Here’s how you can get your hands on high-quality swag in just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Identify Your Budget and Needs

The first step in ordering swag is to determine what products will best represent your brand and appeal to your audience. Are you looking for something practical like tote bags or something fun like branded stress balls? 

Don’t forget to consider the event or purpose behind the swag. Are you preparing for a trade show, a corporate event, or a client giveaway? Identifying your needs will help narrow down your choices and ensure that the products you choose will have the desired impact.

Do you have a specific budget for your swag? We have access to branded products ranging from $0.10 to $1,000. The more information we have about the quantity and budget, the better our recommendations will be. 

Most importantly though, use us! We love to help clients identify their needs and brainstorming the perfect solutions to meet these needs. The best way to keep this process easy is to bring us in at the beginning. 

Step 2: Select Your Swag

Choosing the right swag is crucial for making a lasting impression. Start by considering your target audience and the purpose of the swag. Are you aiming to attract new clients at a trade show, reward loyal customers, or boost employee morale? Select items that align with your brand values and that your audience will find useful and appealing. 

And of course, work with us! Our team is available to brainstorm products and ensure you are selecting the best products. We will also ensure that the quality of the products reflects your brand’s standards—after all, your swag is an extension of your company’s image.

Step 3: Place your Order and Customize Your Swag

Customization is where the magic happens. We can work with you to select the best decoration method and also to mock up the options. Our design team is also available to assist with any questions or special requests, ensuring that your swag perfectly reflects your brand’s identity.

Step 4: Receive and Distribute Your Swag

One of the best parts of the process is receiving your swag. We provide fast and reliable shipping, ensuring that your items arrive on time for your event. 

Once you have your promotional products in hand, it’s time to distribute them and start reaping the benefits. Whether you’re handing them out at a trade show, gifting them to loyal clients, or using them as employee incentives, you’ll quickly see the positive impact of high-quality, branded swag.
