One of the best things about living in a planned community is the sense of togetherness that often comes along with it. While your HOA is probably already doing things to foster a sense of community, there’s something you may not have tried yet: branded merchandise.

5 Branded Community Merchandise Ideas

Branded merchandise is a marketing tool used by many notable businesses. Approximately 85% of people who receive promotional merchandise do business with the advertiser.

Therefore, it is no surprise why promotional merchandise has become one of the most popular and effective marketing strategies. So, why not think about using branded merchandise for your HOA?  Consider these merchandise ideas:

1. Personalized USB Drives

USB drives are always popular since they're helpful and fun. HOAs can utilize branded flash drives to distribute brochures and information without substantial printing costs. Consider putting your governing documents and welcome info on cute USB drives.

2. Community Logo

A logo is a great way to represent your community’s culture and it can also be a fun way to get residents involved. If you don’t already have a logo, you may want to consider holding a contest in the community to see who can come up with the best design. 

Encourage your residents to express their enthusiasm, appreciation, and love for your community while attracting new residents. Once you have a logo, you can have it printed on various items.

3. HOA Branded Pop-Up Coolers 

Pop-up coolers are ideal for hot summer days helping your community beat the heat and stay calm. Personalizing them with your HOA’s name and/or logo can make these coolers even more special. Additionally, branded pop-up coolers are perfect for welcome gifts for new residents, or as a raffle prize at a community event. 

4. Branded T-Shirts

When it comes to branded merchandise, t-shirts are always a popular option. Not only are they practical, but they can also be stylish and fun.

Your HOA board can offer t-shirts in a variety of colors and styles. Your shirts should include the name of your association and a logo if you have one. T-shirts are also another great item to include in a welcome package for new residents. 

5. Dog Poop Bag Dispensers

In areas where many pet owners walk their dogs, dog poop bag dispensers make cleaning up a breeze. Provide branded dog poop dispensers to direct waste to a suitable disposal location and a dedicated container.

When your HOA supplies doggie poop bag dispensers, it encourages people to clean up after their pets while also marketing your association.
