For some businesses, choosing promotional merchandise is a serious business. This should not be surprising because oftentimes, they are handed out in bulk and can take a considerable percentage of the marketing and advertising budget. Personalised products can only be effective if you have managed to choose the right product to associate with your business. Also important is to be creative to establish memory recall and brand recognition especially with the tough market competition. If you are looking to hand out promotional toys, which are always on the top of the list of best corporate gifts, why not choose custom-branded puzzles?
Why Choose Promotional Puzzles
Handing out customised puzzles is perhaps one of the best giveaways as they can engage the consumers for hours at a time. This means you have the person’s undivided attention while they are solving the puzzle and your name will be burned to their subconscious the longer and more frequently they play such a game. Plus, they are fun and interesting!
Benefits of Puzzles
The really great thing about custom puzzles is that they are not meant for any specific market. In short, they can be played by anyone. While trying to solve a puzzle, an individual can enjoy the following benefits:
Enhance the following skills: math, problem-solving, cognitive, and fine motor skills.
Improve hand and eye coordination
Improve social skills (for group puzzles)
Develop deductive reasoning and abstract thinking
Spur creativity and imagination
