By opening a promotional products franchise, you’re investing in a profitable industry whose demand and reach is not just sustainable, but continually growing.

The first step to realizing your dreams of being your own boss and starting your own business is admitting that you’d like to change careers and invest in yourself. It’s also the easiest. But for many endeavoring entrepreneurs, the next step—picking an industry in which they should invest their time and equity—is a difficult decision. We’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be. Why? Opening a promotional products franchise is the answer.

Once the business is started, though, the continual dual challenge of business owners is growing brand awareness and increasing sales.

But what if we told you there’s a simple secret at your disposal that unlocks both? Spoiler alert: there is, and it’s utilizing the power of promotional products.

Armed with that knowledge, why wouldn’t you invest in a promotional products franchise opportunity?

Read further as we present an overview of what this secret involves, a look at the industry, and why choosing Signarama is the right choice for your business dreams.

Industry Outlook

In a series of studies, researchers found that the power of promotional products has a tremendous reach for both new and returning consumers.

To summarize:

  • 88% of people remember the name of a company from which they’ve received a promotional product.
  • 41% of those people said that product was a wearable item, the overwhelming majority.
  • 85% of customers who received a free product did business with the company, and nearly 80% said they would do business with them again.

So what does that mean? In short, that people love free stuff, they remember you better and for longer periods of time when you give it to them, it’s as good of a marketing tactic (if not better) than anything else out there, and that more people will spend more money on your products.

The revenue that promotional products franchises are generating mirrors these results. Per data from IBISWorld, the industry generated $21 billion of revenue in 2016 and averaged 2.4% growth annually over the past five years.
