Promotional items help to increase your brand awareness and build a loyalty with your customers or clients. Custom socks are a great promotional item to use in all of your marketing efforts. Not only do they stand out, but they are an item that everybody wants and uses. Here are a few ways to effectively use socks as a promotional item.


Fundraisers are an opportunity to hand out promotional items in order to raise money. For example, you could design your own sock fundraiser to help raise money. Choose your school’s colors and add a fun design like stripes or polka dots. You could give away the socks and accept donations. Either set up a table at lunch to advertise or attend school events like a football game.

Tradeshow & Conference Giveaways

Tradeshows and conferences are a great place to give away promotional items. When you have a booth at a tradeshow or conference, bringing a promotional item is essential. You want the promotional item you bring to ensure you stand out against your competition. We believe socks make the best trade show giveaways. Not only do they make a great impression, but they are a gift that people will actually use even after the event is over. Prior to your event, design your own custom socks. Add your brand’s logo, slogan, and colors so that each time the attendees wear your socks, they are reminded of your business.

Gifts for Potential Clients

If you have a prospect that you are hoping becomes a client, a great way to build that relationship is to give a gift basket filled with promotional items. Include items you know your prospect will use but that will also leave a lasting impression. Giving custom socks are a great way to remind the prospect about your company but also give them a gift that they will actually use. Hopefully, the kind gesture will prompt them to give you a phone call and will give you the opportunity to turn them into a client.

Employee Appreciation

Your company’s best advocates are your own employees. They know your company best and deal with it on the most personal level. It’s important that your employees feel appreciated so that they feel comfortable representing your company in the best light. When your employees wear your company merch, they are supporting your brand and promoting your name to the public. Socks are a clothing item that everyone wears in any situation. It doesn’t matter if they are dressed up or dressed down, everyone wears socks. So why not take the opportunity to make sure their socks are branded with your company’s name and logo?
