I just got a cool bi-fold note pad with different size sticky notes on the side opposing the note pad.  Perfect for notes you need to jot when you are out and about.

The best swag is what the recipient will USE and SEE.

A note pad labeled GROCERY has worked well.

Every year I participate in Earth Day events where I set up an exhibition. There I am able to observe what they remove from my booth and what is taken from the exhibitions of others.

Lots of people take pens.

Lots of people take note pads.

However, the most effective, that gets the phone ringing, for me  is a T-shirt.

EVERYBODY reads what is on a T-shirt.

Your choice is spend nickles and get nothing.

Or spend dollars and be effective.

Of course I'm leaving stuff out.

Many years ago I received a "Cutzit" keychain from a friend.  It is a plastic sleeve which looks like a key but it has a retractable exacto knife inside of it.  I always have pens and was ready to order new ones but wanted to try something else as well.  I was looking at that keychain and it had been on my keychain for 7 years at that point!  I thought, how great would it be to give out something that had my name and number on it that would be in people's hands every single day for that long?  Anyway, for the last 10 years I've had them and people can't believe how handy they are and how often they use them to open packages, cut out articles or coupons, etc.  I have people ask me for them all the time.

Most of the stuff I get from title companies is pretty lame.  I'm not a huge fan of what I see out there for realtors in general.

 

Now one piece of swag/marketing I use on a daily basis is a letter opener.  I still have one from a company I worked at back in 97.

 

At fitness expos I see bottles, keychains, celebrity photo ops, free samples.  Best was at Olympia last year.  Body Fortress gave out a sweet set of reusable utensils that were designed to rest off the table and an incredible travel coffee mug that I use daily.  That insulated travel mug has kept drinks warm for over 13 hours!
