Advertising with Pens

I have received a really nice pen with my business name and phone number on it. It was sent unrequested by me. With the initial free ones they work out at $1.50 each for top quality.
Has anyone used these successfully? I’m being careful as in the past have spent money to no advantage.

Sue, I use pens all the time. When I worked in marketing, this was always one of my first suggestions to small businesses with little budgets. The price is way too high. Shop around online and you can find some great deals. For what you would use those for you don’t need the high end pens. I think I got 250 for $100. I drop mine off at all different places around town, restaurants, hair salons, anything where children or parents may go. Most places won’t let you hang a flyer, but people are always stealing their pens so they are always in need of them, especially if they are free. Might as well be a pen with your info on it.
Servers at restaurants will become your best friend! People always take their pens. I always tell them to call me when they run out … they’ve got my number. Highly effective, cheap, and everyone always needs a pen.
