Three Reasons Your School Needs Branded Products
Because your place of learning is a brand, so you need to promote it…
If you’re a teacher, it only seems like the summer holidays started five minutes ago. For parents… it’s a bit different, to say the least. But whichever way you look at it, the academic year is back. If you’re a teacher, you might be super organised and have ordered all your educational establishment’s branded material. But if you haven’t, or if you’re unconvinced of the benefits of branded products, read on. Below, EverythingBranded outline the reason branding, and branded promotional products, should be a key part of your place of learning, and highlight some of our huge range of products. Whether it’s book bags or laptop bags, eco-friendly products or top tech, water bottles or lanyards – we’ve got the lot. So read on, and see how EverythingBranded can help your educational establishment.
- Relationship Building
Whether you’re a primary school, secondary school, academy, college or university, building a relationship with the students and parents is key. Evidence supports the theory that increased parent participation correlates with improved academic success amongst students, and a more positive outlook about school and homework. Studies also show that a pro-active parent gives the teachers more time to concentrate their efforts on teaching!
Carefully thought-out promotional merchandise can help to build and strengthen this parent-teacher-student relationship by helping to make students feel rewarded and parents to feel included. It is important to provide promotional products that can meet the students and parents’ needs and home environment.
For example, free promotional USB sticks will make students’ life easier by enabling them to complete their homework at home, and then bring it into school to print. Or providing branded lunch boxes encourages parents and students to make and bring in healthy, homemade lunches, helping to also save the pennies!
Fundraising in schools is essential these days to give that little bit of financial support back into the school. If you’re thinking of holding an event, think carefully when picking a campaign and what you want to achieve.
Picking a theme for an event can be a crowd pleaser for the parents and the children, so selling and promoting the school using branded merchandise with your school logo can raise funds and benefit everyone. Whether you have a large or small budget to work with, there will always be a giveaway of some kind within this budget.
Fundraising activities will not only bring in funds for your school, but any charitable donations will also help to show commitment to your local community.
Another great way to utilise branded merchandise is simply for promotion. There are many different ways to use products to raise awareness of your school, for example, for direct mail campaigns for prospective students or as giveaways at exhibitions.

Hydration is key for any student, and research tells us that a student that’s hydrated will be able to concentrate and focus on tasks longer than one that isn’t. So water bottles are the perfect product to have in your place of learning. They also do their bit for the environment, reducing single-use plastic by getting students to refill their water bottle.
