The first item we simply couldn’t skip over on our list of the best business advertising products for all businesses in 2022 is a set of wireless Bluetooth earbuds

Author’s Tip: When customizing wireless Bluetooth earbuds with your business logo, make sure to choose a set that’s durable, mostly in terms of battery life. Look for earbuds that simply need to be popped back in their case to recharge.

Moving on.

The same applies to pretty much every kind of branded bag, such as drawstring bags that are ideal for going to the gym, branded backpacks, and travel bags.

As you can see, the process of creating promotional notebooks is as easy as ABC. 

The main steps are:

A branded wireless charging pad, one of the latest trends in the swag industry, couldn’t be missing from our list. 

It’s lightweight and practical, ideal for those who hate having to deal with messy cables and super-sensitive phone chargers.

10. Face Mask

If you’re looking to advertise your business with products that people will use on a daily basis, then a branded face mask should be one of your top choices.

We’ve got another two business advertising products for all businesses in 2022. 

Let’s get into the second to last item we have for you. 

11. Koozies and Coolers

Koozies and coolers are these great little holders that can keep your drink at the right temperature for hours. 

Have a look:

Because no one wants to drink beer or soft drinks at the wrong temperature on a warm spring day, these products are the solution. 

They can keep cans cold for several hours, simply by freezing their cooling core base. 

We particularly recommend these products for conferences and other in-person events; giving a pair of these to conference attendees and event speakers means that you’ll have them walking around between talks with your brand logo in their hands. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to promote your brand and have many people advertising your business at the same time, even without having to do anything else except drink their brews or other beverages. 

Overall, they’re cool and useful items that can be created for businesses in lots of different industries, from hospitality to events management. 

Author’s Tip: Koozies and coolers are ideal for running social media photo contests. All you need to do is ask the item recipients to post their photos online and tag your business. That will make your brand known to even more people through the power of word-of-mouth marketing

Let’s get to the last item on our list. 

12. Calendar

We’re rounding up our list of 12 business advertising products with an old-time classic in the branded merch industry: the calendar or planner

A branded new calendar or planner for the new year is always much needed. 

Using a planner on a daily or monthly basis is great because it allows you to schedule events, tasks, and appointments while keeping it all in one place. 

Plus, for those with busy and demanding daily routines, setting due dates and deadlines for their to-do list is important to help them stay on track and make the most of their spare time. 

In terms of style, a calendar, diary, or planner doesn’t have to look boring. 

Here’s a beautiful example of how playful your branded planners could look:

However, if you prefer more classic designs, then a simple daily planner like the one shown below may be for you:

Even though we all, obviously, use digital calendars on our phones and laptops, a good old tangible calendar you can hang on the wall or carry in your bag is still in fashion. 

What’s great about this form of advertising is that it helps put your brand in people’s offices and workspaces where they can see it regularly. 

Author’s Tip: To stand out from the crowd, make sure your calendars are of high quality and feature high-end imagery.
