Using Promo Products to Support Native Organizations

Across the country, there are many Indigenous organizations that dedicate their time and resources to helping their community members. Whether it’s through providing education and training, offering support services, or advocating for Indigenous rights and sovereignty, these organizations play an important role. They are key in preserving a culture and identity that has been around for centuries. One way these organizations can promote their mission is by using promotional products for events and community messaging. 
What Are Promotional Products? 
Promotional products are items used by businesses to spread awareness of their brand or message. They are often given away at events or as part of promotional campaigns. Examples include t-shirtshatsmugspenskeychainsstickers — basically anything that has a logo or message on it! Promotional products can be extremely effective marketing tools if used correctly. They create visibility for your organization while also providing potential customers with something tangible that they can keep and use. 
Here are just a few suggestions for messaging and/ or events:
How Can They Help Native Organizations? 
Native organizations in Canada can benefit from using promo products because they help spread the word about the organization’s mission and goals. For example, giving out t-shirts with the organization’s logo at a powwow is a great way to increase visibility among those attending the event. It also helps build a sense of pride among members of the community who may not have known about the organization before. Additionally, ‘swag’ can be used to raise funds – selling items like hats or mugs with the organization’s logo printed on them is a great way to raise money without asking people for donations directly! 
My Next Promo has built relationships with many native groups in its 25+ years in business. Using our products can be an effective way for Native organizations to promote their mission and identity while raising funds for their cause. People love freebies – especially ones that have been customized specifically for them. This is an excellent opportunity for Indigenous groups across Canada to make their presence known in both their local communities as well as further abroad! Not only will this help spread awareness but it also shows how proud you are of your heritage and culture – which is something we should all strive towards!
We are here to help should your organization want to talk.

Promo Swag for Events – What to Consider

If you’re planning on attending a conference, trade show or event, promotional swag is essential. It’s the perfect way to make your presence known at an event and to start conversations with potential clients. When it comes to choosing which type of promotional swag is right for your business, there are several factors to consider. Here, we’ll discuss what those considerations are and how you can choose the best swag for your business. 
The first thing that should be taken into consideration when selecting promotional swag is the budget. As with any type of marketing expense, you want to make sure that you’re not overspending on promotional products that won’t bring in any returns. Before selecting any items, have a good idea of how much money you plan on spending and look for items that fall within that range. 
We have many budget-friendly items, see some of them here.
Another important factor when it comes to selecting swag is the audience. Different types of products appeal to different types of people so it’s important to do some research beforehand and find out what kind of items would appeal most to your target market. This will help ensure that you’re investing in the right type of promotional items for the right crowd. For example, if you are targeting Canadian businesses, branded apparel and accessories like hats or t-shirts may be a great option because they can be used both during and after the conference or event as a reminder of your brand. Consider items that have universal appeal… everybody needs to drink and most people write so items like drinkwareadhesive notepads and journals are good considerations
Here is a start to help you brainstorm- click here.
**Don’t forget you can SORT by newest, price, suggested and lowest quantities
Brand Identity                                          
The last factor is making sure that your products reflect your brand identity. You want people who receive these items to remember who gave them out – so make sure that anything you give out includes some sort of branding message or logo so people know where it came from!  This could include having custom t-shirts printed with an eye-catching design featuring your company logo or having branded pens made up with a catchy slogan related to your product or service. Anything that stands out from the crowd will help keep your brand top-of-mind after the event has ended!  
When it comes time to choose promotional swag for trade shows and conferences, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration such as budget, audience, and brand identity. By keeping these things in mind, you’ll be able to select the best possible choice for your business in order to ensure maximum reach at an event! Investing in quality swag will pay dividends if done correctly – as it will increase exposure for your business and create lasting impressions among potential customers. With careful consideration and research into what type of promotion works best for each event, businesses can get maximum return on investment from their promotional efforts. So go ahead – invest in some great swag today!

They’re an easy and effective way to get your name out there, and they can be used in any number of ways. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using promotional products to promote your business. 

Benefits of Using Promotional Products 
There are many reasons why you should use promotional products for your business. 

First, they’re cost-effective. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on expensive advertising campaigns when you can purchase items like t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, pens, or hats that people will actually want to use. Plus, they can be customized with your logo or other branding elements so that they stand out from the crowd. 
Another big benefit is that promotional products are tangible items that people can see and touch. This helps create an emotional connection between them and your brand because it gives them something physical that they can associate with you. It also encourages people to talk about your company in positive terms because they feel connected to it in some small way.   

Last but not least, it gives people something useful that will remind them of you every time they use it—which means more visibility for your brand! 

All in all, promotional products are a great way to increase your brand visibility and engage with potential customers in a meaningful way. They’re cost-effective and help create an emotional connection between people and your brand that traditional advertising can’t match. So if you’re looking for an easy way to boost awareness for your business, consider investing in some high-quality promotional products today!

Custom Adhesive Note Pads

People ask us: “What is the best bang-for -the-buck” in our promotional product offerings.

Without a doubt, one of our best options is a simple piece of stacked paper that we short form to call an “Ad Pad”.


See a wide variety of our custom printed adhesive note pads here.


Why do we love them so much? Well- let’s take our best selling 4″w x 3″/ 25 sheet pad seen here.  At an order of 500 pcs an order its right around $250 (plus tax and shipping). The math on that is that each sheet is only $0.02 ea (with the whole pad costing less then $0.50 ea.)! 


The longevity of these type of products are great as these printed note pads stick around on office desks and in people’s homes. Then they give their message with YOUR message and that has the potential to dramatically increase the range of your marketing.


Equally as good, these are printed in FULL COLOUR, so  you can show a product, a place, a colourful logo or your happy smiling face if you’d like … without any additional costs!


We get it- your first reaction may be “that’s boring” but in fact and in practice it is hard to beat for those with tight budgets or not!

Buying Promotional Products from a Canadian source

There have been countless of the byproducts resulting from COVID. One being companies and individuals looking at their supply chains and where things are sourced. One need to look no further than Suez Canal being block and hundreds of ships waylaid for days. Or vaccine shortages due to lack of domestic manufacturing. These occurrences remind us, when we can, Canadians are best buying promotional products from a Canadian source.


There is also a heightened sense of Regionalism wherein people are trying to buy as regionally as possible. Things take time to change at this world-wide level. In the short-term there are ways to get part or most of the way there.


What can we do?

  1. Buy Canadian manufactured products: We have numerous suppliers and manufacturers that we deal with that are home-grown right in Canada. Many of Made in Canada products can be found here. Many of our promotional magnets, notepads and other paper related items have many options for being Canadian manufactured.
  2. Buy Canadian warehoused products: My Next Promo works with some great promo suppliers that call Toronto or Montreal their hometown. Bringing in the type of products that aren’t currently made domestically. Most of our drinkware, tote bags and pens are examples of this, where they’re stocked and printed in Canada.
  3. One of the most unique features on our site is that most products show you where the promotional product ships from. Beyond that we take it to another level by noting if there is a local pick-up option! If you are local to this you could go pick up your new promos and save any related shipping costs!
  4. Even if the product isn’t a manufacturer in Canada OR warehoused here we have a handful of fantastic suppliers who print south of the border. They then have trucks coming up daily to a Canadian distribution point. The big advantage of this is that there are no “mystery charges” for that border crossing and all of that is built into the price (you would just pay the shipping cost from the Canadian distribution point).

We hear it often by customers who are tantalized by a low unit price on a USA based supplier site only to find the “hidden” costs overwhelm the final total. Just the other day we talked with a customer who was upset that they ordered a coffee mug recently from a US source that was a great price… but it shipped from Arizona (so the cost of shipping breakable ceramics was high), plus they got dinged at the border for importation charges… not to mention the US to Canadian Dollar conversion.


It comes down to this: You are Canadian… buying promotional products from a Canadian source goes a long way. We have been helping “Mom and Pop Shops” all the way up to the top corporate companies in Canada since 1997. My Next Promo hand-picks every promotional product you will find on this site for value and price it competitively. Perhaps most importantly- we make it EASY and FRIENDLY.
