    Printing key rings or key fobs with business on or I may get some car air freshers made with my logo and push these through customers doors

    Is this worth ago or a waste of money ? Will cost £200 roughly for 200 items

    Seems a waste of money to me as your customers already know who your are surely?

    I like this idea and wanted to order a load of pens , but my wife brought me back to earth again ;)

    If you have a business that relies on encouraging people to return to you for repeat business, it makes sense to have your name in front of them on a fridge magnet, keyfob, pen etc.

    But we work a round, same customers on rotation. So there is no point.

    Can see what you meen , ordering pens and leaving some in tubs in the local newsagents or post office maybe worth a try though it's all about getting your business name out there isn't it

    I do sponsor a local footy team and my logo is on there waterproof jackets,
    This however was a waste of money as they remove these to play and if it's raining too much matches get cancelled anyway , but the other day I did see a young lad with his footy top on in aldi lol

    I've got to agree with smurf, bit of a waste IMO. I'd rather pay a canvasser that money, or take out some printed advert in a paper that gets delivered to 1000s of houses. 200 quid can easily pick you up a load of work if its put in the right place.

    This isn't a bad idea. People like free pens.

    In my local post office and in the next town's post office they have screens up advertising local businesses. They are like short videos/dvd type adverts each lasting for a about 1 minute. Lots of plumbers, builders, funeral directors etc advertise on these. I get approached every year but decline as I don't need the work. They only put up one or two of each trade too. The adverts run on a loop so your ad comes up loads of times throughout the day. This costs about £25 per month I think.
