Dread your daily commute? You’re not alone. Driving into Boston or even in the surrounding area to work and home is torture, particularly around this summer’s Mass Pike “Pike-ocalypse”. Today, we spend more time in the car and stuck in traffic than ever before. In fact, the 2015 Urban Mobility Scorecard from the Texas A&M Transportation Institute found that the total amount of time that American rush-hour commuters spent stuck in traffic was about 6.9 billion hours in 2014, up from 6.4 billion in 2010.
However, as marketers, we like to look on the bright side of things. For us, this extra travel time means we have the opportunity to engage these drivers during their commutes! In fact, promotional car accessories can have a positive effect on making that driving time both safer and more enjoyable, while allowing your brand to shine. So, we’ve put together some of the most popular promotional products for drivers to highlight your brand.
Auto Phone Mount
Help drivers stay safe by giving them a phone mount so they can view directions more easily. This is a great piece for everyone to keep in the car and use on a daily basis while showcasing your company logo and reaching your target audience throughout their travels.
Auto Safety Kit
Your customers and prospects will appreciate this branded safety kit that comes with all of the essentials: jumper cables, gloves, tire gauge, an ice scraper, a flathead and Phillips-head screwdriver, a first aid kit, a poncho, an SOS banner and a flashlight with an emergency cone.
Auto Tissue Cup Holder
How many times have you taken your eyes off the road to search for tissues? By giving out branded tissue cup holders, you are providing a safer commute to your customers and prospects while keeping your company literally at their fingertips day and night.
Seat Back Organizer
Anyone with a car knows things just pile up. Help them get organized while showing your brand on this durable seat back organizer to make their daily commutes and car travel that much easier. Your customers and prospects will appreciate the thoughtful promotional gift.
Magnetic Emergency Flashlight
Everyone should keep an extra emergency flashlight in the car. This magnetic emergency flashlight makes for a perfect promotional item to hand out that people will actually use. We love this version, which comes with a super strong neodymium magnet to hold it upright against any metal surface if the need arises.
Our last favorite piece for commuters is an old classic, a travel mug. You can’t go wrong with getting in front of your customers throughout the day with a really nicely done branded mug that people will actually use. We love these high end stainless-steel models that fits into cup holders and looks really sleek throughout their morning commute.
