Free branded travel coffee mug. Free gift with purchase. Free t-shirt with a gigantic logo on it that you’ll never wear. You love them all. But why? Why are we more likely to patronize a business that has handed us free stuff? According to Jerry McLaughlin, president of Branders, one of the largest sellers of corporate gifts and promotional items online, it’s all about reciprocity. When we receive something, we feel compelled to give something back. And that’s why so many places invest in branded items. Free stuff builds businesses.
