Over 35% of the world is active on the internet, and this number is growing quickly. With smartphones making the internet more accessible than ever, tech companies are breaking barriers and creating new products competing to push ahead of the game.

The public looks at the sites they use every day online and thinks to themselves, “Why didn’t I think of this!”

Well, truth is, it’s because tech companies are smarter than the rest of us. It’s true. One step ahead of the game as always, tech companies know what will trend and what will quickly fade into the background. So to make sure your tech business is as active in promotion as it is in breaking barriers, contact ePromos for any of our diverse technological promotional products. Getting your company name out there is just the first step in becoming the most powerful and most well-known in the field of technology.

 1.       Promotional Screen Cleaners

If your business specializes in apps or smartphones, there are so many great giveaways to leave a permanent mark in your valued customer’s memory of their favorite tech company. With every purchase, hand out an additional customer appreciation gift. Giveaways such as full color promotional screen cleaners are inexpensive gifts that will be greatly treasured and shared with others. Every day when people wipe off their phones, they will see your logo and be more inclined to talk about your business.

2.       Custom Cell Phone Charger With Earbuds

If your tech business is looking for a more unique giveaway, a 3-in-1 cell phone charger kit with earbuds that comes in an extremely convenient small case could be imprinted with your company logo or personal message. There is nothing worse than being on the road or at the office and knowing that your phone is about to die. This kit has a USB adapter as well as an adapter for the car that will allow you to plug your smartphone in wherever you are. On top of the two chargers, the comfortable earbuds allow complete silent to the outside world and total focus on your favorite music. Handing out these cases to valued customers shows that you appreciate their loyalty and know exactly their technology needs.

3.       5-in-1 Custom Charger Sets

I travel, not as much as I used to, but on average a week a month. Most of these weeks begin at 4 am as I fumble through the house in the dark so I don’t wake my kids. I’ve pretty much packed everything the night before, but I am usually panicked that I’m going to leave something behind.

3 Key Facts You Should Definitely Know About Custom Power Banks


get custom power banks from ePromos

Are you familiar with custom power banks – aka external battery packs? They’re the newest members to the electronic family of promotional gifts, and they’re surging in popularity this year.

It’s no surprise why. Check out these mobile technology stats reported by Pew Research:

As of January 2014:

  • 90% of American adults have a cell phone
  • 58% of American adults have a smartphone
  • 42% of American adults own a tablet computer
  • 32% of American adults own an e-reader

People no longer use just a phone – they use multiple tech devices throughout the day. And as your customers would likely agree, it’s a real problem when the batteries die – especially when it comes to phones.

Nearly 30% of cell-phone owners describe their phones as “something they can’t live without,” according to Pew Research. Sixty-seven percent of cell-phone owners check their phones for messages, alerts, or calls – even when they don’t notice it vibrating or ringing.

Phones – and all our favorite tech gadgets and devices – are embedded into our lifestyles. We need them charged up and ready to go when we’re ready to use them. Savvy marketers are finding ways to cater to their customers’ technology needs, and custom power banks are the promo gift du jour.

Here are three facts to get you up to speed on custom power banks:

1. They’re not just for phones.

Power banks are compatible with all kinds of phones – iPhones, Androids, Motorola, HTC, and others – but you can also use them to charge up GPS devices, iPads and other tablets. They’re equipped with a USB to micro USB connecting cable that can be used to recharge the battery backup or tech devices.

2. Power banks are fully customizable.

You can screenprint your company logo or message, turning a cool tech gift into a useful marketing tool. Every time recipients charge up their phone or tech device (which is probably daily), they’ll be reminded of your business. Plus, you can even get power banks in trendy neon shades such as pink and orange. You can design power banks to fit your brand and campaign perfectly.

3. Power banks pack some serious power.

They’re small, slim and sleek, but don’t let their size fool you – power banks can fully charge iPhones and other tech devices. It’s important to consider their capacity, which is measured in milli Ampere Hour (mAH). Typically, the higher the mAH, the greater the capacity. So, for example, a phone with a 1500 mAH battery can be fully charged once by a 1500 mAH power bank. A 5600 mAH battery gives 2-3.5 full charges to a phone and will charge an iPad about 40%. To recharge the power bank, just connect it to a power source such as a laptop.

Now let’s take a look at a few different options in promotional power banks.

usb adapter custom cell phone charger

Custom power banks address one of your customers’ most critical needs when it comes to mobile technology: the need for power. They can get the charge they need anytime, anywhere – no need to scramble to find an outlet or pack multiple cords when traveling. And because your logo is front and center, your company gets some great brand exposure with every use.

Over to you: Have you ever used promotional power banks to promote your company? Why or why not?

Custom USB Drives Experience A Surge In Price


[This is a guest post from Hope Binegar, ePromos’ Senior Merchandising Manager – Vendor Relations]

Earlier today, I received a note from one of my suppliers that read:

“Yesterday, one of the largest suppliers to DRAM and Nand flash memory in the world suffered a massive fire in their factory. It is difficult to estimate the fire’s impact to the market, however we anticipate this to have an immediate impact as the factory is focused more on Nand flash memory (the kind found in our flash drives). This fire, coupled with upcoming Chinese national holidays, will likely lead to price increases.”

custom USB drives

I quickly began to alert the team here at ePromos of a possible price increase of one of our best-selling items: custom USB drives. Being from the Gulf Coast, it’s like making sure your gas tank is full before a hurricane hits – get it before the price goes up.

However, several stories began to pop up from creditable sources saying:

“A fire at a SK Hynix memory chip plant in Wuxi, China will have no impact.”- PC World

“Supply volume won’t be affected.” – Bloomberg

“No material damage” –ZDNet

Did I overreact sending out the update? Is this as bad as I was thinking?

I quickly answered my own question. No, sounding the alarm wasn’t the wrong thing to do, and it wasn’t premature. If my disaster experiences have taught me one thing, it’s prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Like in anticipation of any storm, the prices will rise. It’s the speculation of what will happen that will demand it.

Prices did go up as much as 20% today with some of my factories. I do expect it to level off quickly, but only time will tell.

Three Advantages Of Custom USB Drives


custom flash drives

Custom USB drives are becoming as ubiquitous as coffee mugs and pens for many marketers. Nearly everybody uses them. We can spot four at our desk as we’re writing this post. It’s our guess that you have a few stationed at your workspace, too.

Promotional USBs may be small (that’s the point), but they’re mighty marketers. Learn more about custom flash drives, and check out three big reasons you should be using these promotional powerhouses:

1. They’re cost-effective tech giveaways.

Pricing on flash memory is controlled by global supply and demand, and that pricing is about to spike. If you’ve had your eye on promotional USBs, now’s the time to buy. And, hey, as a perk for reading our blog, you’re the first to know about special pricing on some of ePromos’ most popular custom USB drives. We’re keeping this pricing through March 29, so stock up now, and keep reading our blog. You never know when we might give you the skinny on a good deal.

2. They do more than just promote a company name.

You can’t beat the versatility of promotional USB drives. From training documents and sales materials to photos and videos, you can put any kind of information into your audience’s hands. It’s a whole lot more efficient than giving out a huge stack of papers or CDs.

3. They last. And last.

Customize a promo USB drive, and your message will be around for years. Most flash drives are designed to last about 10,000 writes, and some can last a staggering 100,000 writes. As for the number of reads? Virtually limitless.

Promo know-how tip:

Don’t skimp on memory size. There should be enough memory on your promotional USBs to make them useful for recipients. Keep this in mind: A single gigabyte (GB) is good for about 200 songs, 250 10-megapixel pictures or 500 e-books. Work with our Brand Consultants on choosing the right flash drives for your promo.
