The Importance Of Water Bottles For Promotional Marketing



When it comes to promotional marketing materials and products, there are many physical options you can choose from to help spread the word about your brand or company.

One such marketing method that has proven popular time after time is the use of water bottles, both empty and filled. Handing out water bottles to visitors to your business or at events has long been a popular and effective marketing strategy.

This method is popular because handing someone a bottle of water fills an immediate need, specifically for hydration at the moment or to drink later. Having your promotional marketing message on said bottles can allow you to increase your reach and expose your brand to people on a mass scale, especially if you’re handing them out at a huge event.

How To Use Water Bottles For Promotion

You have two main options for using water bottles in marketing and promotion.

Disposable Water Bottles

Disposable water bottles are typically plastic or glass bottles filled with water that can be drunk immediately by whoever you give it to or who purchases it. In this case, you need to add water bottle labels with your brand name and/or logo to which people are exposed when drinking from the bottle. If you’re working at a large event where you’re handing them out to attendees or selling them, you can reach many people directly and indirectly.

Seeing people with your water bottles will drive people to your stand and push sales or attendance further. Or if you’re selling them at a location or giving them out to clients or customers at your business location, you can again still have the same type of impact but on a much smaller scale.

Reusable Water Bottles

Reusable water bottles are extremely popular right now, and people are trying to reduce their plastic consumption. With this in mind, you have a few options you can consider. You can purchase generic reusable water bottles and then have custom labels or stickers produced and added to them. You can have bottles specifically designed with your branding already on them, or you can hand out stickers with your logo and business details for people to stick to their existing water bottles.

Your water bottle label needs to be clear and easily recognizable. If you already have an established brand or logo, using this on your chosen label is a good idea. You might need to adjust it slightly to accommodate the shape of the label; most water bottle labels are circular to fit the bottle.

You also need to ensure that the label fits the type of water bottle you choose, whether you mass produce them specifically for your brand or use a different brand and add your label. It also should be waterproof so it doesn’t come off the bottle easily or disintegrate when water touches it.
