The tablet cover is made of shock resistant neoprene material and has a pretty good perceived value. It is, in itself, a very good reason the buy the magazine.

We loved this promotion because:
  • The product itself is quite cheap but has a good perceived value
  • The branding surface on the product is massive
  • It's quite useful
Some ladies magazines even do a different promotion every month and these are expected now by their readers.   Do you prefer Covermounts or Gifts with Subscription and which is your favourite example from recent months. What works for one market could also work somewhere else for one of your peers in the promotional products market.   Share the knowledge.
