Best Type Of Bluetooth Speaker For Your Promos

Bluetooth speakers are one of the hottest giveaways of 2023 for a reason: They combine the allure of a hot tech product with awesome sound and a slick appearance. In this guide, we’ll break down the nine reasons why speakers are the perfect promotional item, then highlight 10 of the top-selling custom Bluetooth speakers on the iPromo website right now.

Why Bluetooth Speakers Make a Great Giveaway

Not convinced yet that a custom mini speaker should be your next promotional item? Here are nine reasons why you should pick a Bluetooth speaker for your next customer giveaway or employee appreciation gift: 

Anyone with a smartphone can use them.

Unlike some other giveaway items, Bluetooth speakers can be used by basically anyone with a smartphone. They can also be connected to phones, TVs, and other devices as well, so you’re basically guaranteeing that anyone you give the speaker to will be able to use it. Furthermore, any device with Bluetooth 5.0 technology or later can be linked to multiple speakers at the same time, so even if they already own a Bluetooth speaker, they will be able to make use of another to create a surround sound experience.

They are extremely versatile.

Bluetooth speakers can be used in many different contexts, yet another advantage that makes them one of the more popular giveaways. No matter someone’s interests or hobbies, they can make use of a Bluetooth speaker as long as they enjoy listening to music and/or podcasts (and who doesn’t love listening to music?). Whether your recipient is throwing an indoor house party or out camping in the woods, having a Bluetooth speaker will come in handy. They also come in a bunch of different styles, from Bluetooth speaker power banks to Bluetooth speaker tumblers in bulk.

You don’t have to worry about size or fit.

Bluetooth speakers also simplify the buying process since they are one size fits all, unlike most apparel. This really comes in handy when you are looking for a promotional item to give a lot of people, such as an end-of-year appreciation gift for all of your employees. Most Bluetooth speakers also come in one color only (typically black/gray) which simplifies the selection process further. Simply decide which speaker model you want, and you’re all done!

They are portable.

One of the major benefits of a Bluetooth speaker is that they are extremely portable. Even the largest custom mini speakers are small enough that they can be carried outside, put in the car, or even placed in a suitcase for travel. Unlike a stationary speaker system, this greatly increases its utility and means that your recipient will get a lot of use out of it.

They don’t require a power connection.

Part of the reason why Bluetooth speakers are so portable is that they don’t require an electrical power connection to work. Instead, they can be charged ahead of time (usually with a standard charging cable) and then taken anywhere from the patio to the pool to a picnic table. This makes them more flexible than a different tech product that has to be plugged into the wall to use.

They are usually water resistant.

Most Bluetooth speakers are at least somewhat resistant, which sets them apart from some other tech products. This means that they are protected from accidental spills and splashes, which helps them to last for years to come. This gives your recipients the confidence to take the speakers on adventures and trips when they leave their other more delicate tech at home.

Many retail brands are available to customize.

Lots of our customers are interested in products from major retail brands that they can customize for a truly impressive promotional item. When it comes to Bluetooth speakers, we offer models from many different audio retail brands, including Bose, Sony, Anker, JBL, and more, so you can choose the one that works best for your needs.

They are available at multiple price points.

While Bluetooth speakers can certainly get expensive (especially if you pick a top-of-the-line retail brand) there are also plenty of affordable options in the $20 to $50 range. If you’re looking to give away some Bluetooth speakers but you’re on more of a budget, don’t let that deter you from choosing this as your promotional item!

Speakers are in high demand.

Along with other tech products like wireless headphones and tablets, Bluetooth speakers are one of the most popular wishlist items. This high demand means that Bluetooth speakers are sure to be a coveted giveaway item whether you are presenting them to employees, clients, customers, or all of these.
