Promotional Products leap from Desktop to Internet with QR Codes

(LOS ANGELES) – February 7, 2011 – MagiCubes.com® has taken its 3D promotional products to the next level of customer engagement. Magic Cubes are utilized as Promotional Products that are given away as gifts at Trade Shows and business meetings. Now, Quick Response (QR) code placement on all Magic Cubes products allows B2B and B2C marketers to link their 3D physical desktop promotional product to the online world.

MagiCubes® are a 3D promotional item that can be manipulated from nine to twenty separate images/messages that are printed with stunning graphics. The advertising puzzles can be changed into a variety of shapes including a business card or soda can. The QR codes drive prospects from the 3D MagiCube® instantly to mobile websites, videos, eCoupons, surveys, online quizzes, blogs, and more with a simple click / scan from a mobile phone using QR reader software. Most new phones have the QR reader installed, or it can be easily downloaded from Apple App Store, Android Market, and BlackBerry App World.

“When it comes to picking out promotional giveaways, it’s important to keep the perceived value in mind,” comments Ron Friedman, founder of http://MagiCubes.com. “Can simple branded items reinforce your MarCom objectives with tangible ROI? MagiCubes already engage and have lasting impressions, now they also drive customers directly to your digital content and can push a new offer again and again as frequent as you like, via a QR code, and that’s desktop branding with integrated real-time lead generation.”
A marketing plan that includes a fun and interactive promotional product can be important to the bottom line, but you need to be able to track the ROI to justify spend. Friedman explains, “QR codes are of particular interest to marketers because it gives them the ability to measure response rates with a high degree of precision for demographic and geographic analytics. This allows for easier ROI calculation, thus helping justify spending on marketing budgets. ”

The Magic Cube Effect of 3D Marketing and Advertising

As advertising pressure rises, people’s attention and willingness to accept companies’ attempts at communication declines.

Recent advertising and marketing studies confirm that tactile marketing materials are an efficient way of getting the attention and sympathy of your target group. Promotional giveaways not only enjoy the highest acceptance of all media, they also excel in their recall-performance: 72% in unaided awareness, vs. 24% for print- and 49% for TV-advertising.  (Promotional Product Study 2009)

Integrated into your marketing and advertising concepts, an effective promotional product giveaway can markedly improve the effect and durability of a marketing campaign, an event or a trade show.

Magic Cubes® combine the communicative strengths of a giveaway with the design flexibility and information depth of print media. Amazement, the play instinct and the joy of discovery guarantee 100% attention and intensive engagement with your message.

For more than 18 years, PTI Corp’s (Owner of Magic Cubes® since 1993) customers have confirmed the practical effectiveness of the Magic Cubes® as 3D Objects for advertising.

Marketing consultants report of long lasting placement of Magic Cubes® on the desks of their clients. Direct-marketing experts are amazed about response-ratios and salespeople are delighted by the increased awareness of customers with Magic Cubes® as a tactile sales-aid.  3D Objects for advertising that enriches with positive emotion creates the magic that creative directors seek in creating memorable advertising. With the Magic Cubes® this is available as a 100% customized hand held promotional product gift.

If you would like to learn more about the communicative effect of Magic Cubes for Object Promotions and promotional products in general, please contact your promotional products professional and tell them you want the Fidget Factor®!
