It’s March, which means nearly everyone is about to go a little mad for what’s affectionately known as March Madness, the annual NCAA Division 1 men’s basketball championship.
And where there are bracket-wielding fans, there should always be promotional products. Adding your logo to basketball-themed promo items puts your brand smack in the middle of all the NCAA excitement.
This year’s NCAA tournament (the 75th edition, by the way) kicks off on March 19 and involves 68 teams. The victor will be determined at the championship game on April 8.
Considering the popularity of March Madness (it costs businesses millions of hours in lost productivity each year), brands are smart to capitalize on the basketball frenzy.
Here are 10 hot, new promotional items for March Madness:
1. Grab a sharpie—this promotional basketball is ready to be signed. It features your logo and a white autograph panel, helping elevate it to souvenir status.
