Are you operating a campground? A non-profit? These are no-brainers in the “down to earth” branding category. But hey, don’t rule your business out of this brand category just because you’re, say, an accounting firm or a mechanic shop.

Consider:
Your organization’s got a tried and true approach to success that your customers can count on every time.

A final thought on branded giveaways: Whatever style promo piece you decide to put your name on, make sure it’s one you feel good about. And if you hand it to your customer with a smile, that’s the best marketing of all.
