8 Essential Desk Accessories to Help You Stay Organized

Your desk is where you spend majority of your working hours. Therefore, your office abode should be a haven for productivity. Fact: You’ll be much faster and sharper when you know exactly where your things are.

Stay on top of your daily tasks with these essential desk accessories that transform your desk into a neat and organized place.

1. Vertical board
Here’s how to make excellent use of the walls along the perimeter of your desk (if any). Use a vertical board to write out important reminders. Visually displaying your to-do list helps tame the clutter on your table. It also allows you to assemble tentative mood boards that will help fuel your brain juices for your existing tasks.

2. Calendar
Your desktop computer’s digital calendar might not make the cut when you have multiple windows buffering on your screen. Make your life easier by having a calendar in front of you. Now, you can quickly jot down important dates and notes.

3. Post-it notes
Using a trusty notepad is as simple as scribbling, tearing and sticking. This table accessory will become your bearer of important news or reminders. You can also use it to warn your colleagues not to touch your sandwich in the office refrigerator.

4. Pencil holder
Having a pencil holder on your desk reduces the likelihood of having your pens scattered all over your table. It doesn’t have to end with pencils, though. You can stack your pens, markers, rulers and scissors too.

5. Cleaning wipes
This is particularly important if you have lunch at your desk. But even if you don’t, make it a habit to disinfect your table with antibacterial wipes at least once a week. It’s important to get rid of dirt and grime that lurk on your table and keyboard.

6. File holder
A hefty and durable holder can be used to store all your important files and documents. This helps you avoid the inconvenience of trying to find an important file sandwiched somewhere in a tall stack of pages. It’s also important to label the different folders clearly, so you can easily fish out whichever document you need within a matter of seconds.

7. Spill-proof mug
If you’re living in fear of your office mug tipping over and causing a horrific mess, you should invest in a flask with a lid that shuts tight. Even if you knock it over, you will not be faced with the consequences of having coffee-drenched documents.

8. Desk plant
Nature is soothing to the eyes. Our eyes need a break too, because we constantly strain them with bright lights from our desktop and mobile phones. Looking at the green leaves also promotes a sense of relaxation and gives you peace of mind. Plus, it makes your desk look aesthetically pleasing.

How to Choose the Right Promotional Items to Create Brand Awareness

 

Believe it or not, there’s a right and wrong way to use promotional items to promote your business. Most businesses try to create brand awareness by random products and then giving them away to as many people as possible, leaving product reception to pure luck.

There is a better business practice than merely leaving it to chance. It is instead advisable to take a more strategic approach towards using promotional items.

Here are a few tips that will help improve your business’s chances to get good return on investment from promotional items as part of your marketing campaign.

1. Have clear campaign objectives before you purchase your promotional products.
You need to identify what goals you want to achieve from using promotional products. As far as marketing objectives go, you should ask yourself if you want to: (a) promote brand awareness for your business, (b) gain more lead inquiries for your business, or (c) initiate more sales for your business.

Whatever your objectives may be, your return on investment should directly correlate with your business’s marketing activities.

2. Choose the best promotional products for your target audience.
The promotional product that you select must be relevant to your target audience and the actions they want to pursue. For example, IT specialists will appreciate receiving a new laptop case, while clients in administrative positions might be more interested in a customized planner. If you have a younger audience, you may opt for custom buttons and pins. They’ve recently become a trendy fashion statement.

3. Aim to generate profit from your business’s promotional activities.
Don’t just simply shell out funds to promote brand awareness. Choose a specific market as your target audience and recognize how you can integrate a promotional product into their customer experience. Understand the needs and wants of your audience, build an angle that will increase their desire for what you have to offer, and then pitch it to them in the most compelling way.

For example, a store can give away a “free gift” after a set number of purchases. This is a great way to promote continued purchases while adding value to your brand. To get the best results, the promotional item needs to be unique and desirable. Many businesses have used items like limited-edition planners and mugs to create social media buzz, resulting in free online promotion.
