Orientation Day is a nervous and exciting day for students. It’s the start of a journey that leads to new lifelong friends, amazing opportunities and the first steps on their chosen career path. But for businesses and organisations, it’s also a big chance to raise awareness of their brand and win new customers.

First Impressions With Merchandise

There aren’t many occasions when you get to put your company in front of hundreds or even thousands of potential new customers all eager to pick up freebies! Making a good first impression with students at Orientation Day can lay the foundations of a relationship with your brand, so it’s important you get it right. And one of the best ways to do that is with standout promotional merchandise.

Functional Custom Products

There’s no denying it, students love a giveaway. Consider giving them useful items that will help them with their studies such as promotional pens, notebooks, USB flashdrives and calico bags. These are all going to be enormously helpful so there’s a great chance your merchandise – complete with your brand name, logo and contact details – will be kept for months, even years, just building familiarity with your brand.

Studying isn’t all hard work though. Fun items like stress balls, custom Frisbees, rugby balls and other sports gear can all be an excellent way to appeal to students too.

Always Be Prepared

Whatever promotional merchandise you decide on for Orientation Day, make sure you’re prepared. It can be busy and chaotic atmosphere, but the right products and good organisation will lead to a successful event, for you and those freshers!
