Banking Giveaways That Are Sure To Be A Hit

  • Oct 23, 2017

Financial institutions, credit unions and banks all want to let people know their money is safe with them. But that doesn’t mean the giveaways have to be serious as well! There’s plenty of options out there for engaging promo items people will love that still represent your brand.

Not all giveaways were created equal

The giveaway that’s perfect for a truck rally probably won’t work for a banking event. That one is obvious. But what about the women’s event you’re sponsoring? Or the family-focused BBQ you’re hosting?

Here’s what you should think about prior to choosing your banking industry giveaways:

Length of the event and travel distance: Will it be easy for attendees to transport the giveaway home? Will they need to carry it around for hours or will it fit in a bag? 

Demographic: What’s the age group of the target audience? What are their interests?

The importance of targeted gifts

Targeted giveaways for demographics work in just the same way segmenting out email lists or focused ads do. They’re made for one specific set of individuals and the results can be huge. 

I once attended a women’s event where a vendor was giving away whisks. I’ve never seen a group go so crazy for a single product. The booth was packed the entire day!

Get creative with your messaging

Tie your giveaway into a creative marketing campaign. Take this icepack from Credit Union Prospera.  A pre-qualified list received these in the mail followed up with a phone call from a representative with the message “Paying taxes is a big headache. That’s why we’re freezing them for ten years”.
