Self-Promo Kits: 14 Ideas

3715466_mWhy some self-promo campaigns can be very successful, while others can be simply ignored? I think one of the keys to a well-planned promotion is offering giveaways that are useful and memorable. Of course, you should be realistic about how much you can afford to spend. However, some interesting ideas may fit into a very small budget. Below you will see 14 great examples of inspiring promo gifts that designers send to their clients and agents. Each of these projects grabs attention and has a clear brand message. Have your own ideas? Be sure to post them in comments!

  1. As a fellow graphic designer i found this post very interesting and useful, i plan to make new clients in my area and i think the bookmarks idea is something i may go ahead with as its less costly as the others, but i love the mug idea and if i had the money i would be doing just that. Thanks for the helpful post.

  2. I’m glad you like it 🙂 I think the effectiveness of spending our own money is one of the ways to get new contracts. Serious clients will judge not only typography or colors… Thank you for re-blogging and twitting about my post!

  3. Definitely agree, i have been a freelance designer for only a year now and achieved so much already but the one thing that i am trying to improve on is marketing and something as simple as a bookmark suggested in your post is a great way for me to get seen.
