Useful application examples for USB memory sticks

Nowadays USB sticks are ubiquitous, comparable to mobile phones. With falling prices and smaller product sizes, more and more people are using USB sticks to back up data and move it from computer to computer.

In addition, the storage capacity is getting bigger and bigger! However, the use of USB sticks is not only limited to data transfer. USB sticks are used in many other areas.

Enclosed is a list of 10 useful applications for USB memory sticks:

(1) Saving important data and files
When data is stored on a USB stick, it will continue to function after 10 years if stored at normal room temperature. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you use a second USB stick as a copy if a USB stick fails unexpectedly.


(2) Promote your business and increase brand awareness
USB sticks printed with a logo are creative and cost-effective promotional measures for your company. By distributing the printed USB sticks with your logo at trade shows, conferences or events, your brand will be noticed every time your customer uses the stick. Because USB sticks have many uses, people use them often.

Make sure that your memory stick is printed with your logo, slogan and internet address. If your company is not widely known, your logo alone is not meaningful enough. A brief overview of your company and your unique selling points will help in this case.

In addition, you can put your marketing presentations and advertising texts on your stick and let them start automatically as soon as the user inserts them into the PC.

(3) Promote your strengths
If you are a graphic designer, website designer, musician, artist or general business person who wants to show off your strengths, why not load your portfolio onto a USB stick? You can create an immediate impression by showing your references to potential customers.

(4) Distribute scripts and class tests
Schools and universities waste a lot of paper handing out scripts and tests to pupils and students. Why not put all your data on USB sticks and distribute them?

(5) Promote your new products
The introduction of new products leads to increased attention for companies. In order to inspire your customers and increase their curiosity, you can send free samples of your new product line equipped with a USB stick containing data sheets, marketing presentations and application examples.

(6) Run computer applications separately
Did you know that you can run stand-alone computer applications directly from your USB stick without having to install them? These programs can be emails, games, anti-virus programs, calendars, Windows tools and many more. Check out,, and for a list of free USB applications.

(8) Accelerate your system
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 as your operating system, you can use “Windows ReadyBoost” to accelerate your system with your USB stick. The memory space of your USB stick will then be used as an additional buffer memory.

Since flash memory sticks have a higher read/write speed than hard disks, ReadyBoost can lead to a high-performance increase. For more information about Windows ReadyBoost, please go to the article, “What is Windows ReadyBoost.

(9) Back up your computer with Predator
Instead of password-protecting your computer, you can use your USB stick with the Predator application to lock/unlock your computer ( The predator will lock your computer if you are not in person. And when you come back, you can simply plug in your USB stick to unlock your computer again.

(10) Weddings Gifts for Guests
If you are looking for a creative and useful gift, you can give your guests USB sticks with contact details and wedding date. In addition, you can equip the USB sticks with your best wedding photos and your own collection of romantic songs. This will surely impress and enchant your guests.

Top 3 giveaways and promotional items for 2019

“The era of pens, USB sticks and the like is over!”
No, of course not!
Even traditional promotional items still have their right to exist. But the question is: Do these promotional items fulfil their purpose? To achieve this, you first have to consider the concrete goal of using your giveaways. We have evaluated our Top 3 giveaways and promotional items 2018/2019 according to the criteria brand awareness, benefit, wow effect, costs and service life. For comparison, the all-time classic among promotional items is evaluated according to the same criteria.
If you want to be “top of mind” with your target group, the ballpoint pen is probably not the ideal promotional gift. If, on the other hand, you want to encourage people to write by hand – e.g. as a manufacturer of writing materials this might make sense – then you probably do. We remember: The promotional article per se is not simply good or bad, but the goal connected with it is crucial. However, since there are not as many manufacturers of writing materials out there as there are ballpoint pens with logos in circulation, we would like to present our Top 3 alternative and above all innovative giveaways 2018/2019.

4 central questions for the effective advertising novelty
Companies should first and foremost try to be positively remembered by their target group with a giveaway. The prerequisite for this is that the give away fits the company or its service. These are the most important questions you should always ask yourself before purchasing promotional items:

Does the give away to convey the desired emotions to the target group?
Do the services of the company and the promotional items fit together thematically?
Does the give away have a certain benefit? Does it solve a concrete problem?
Would I be happy about this promotional item myself (if I put myself in the position of the target group)?
If you can answer all these questions positively, you can assume that the giveaway or the promotional item is worth its investment. In short: A purchase will pay off for the company sooner or later (positive effects on image and turnover).

The following ideas for giveaways and promotional items are based on the classic corporate goal of “attracting attention or top of mind” – without taking the company’s industry or service into account.

1. Handy ring or smartphone ring

This trendy gadget will certainly cause a stir, and not only among friends. After all, the smartphone is omnipresent in our everyday lives. However, a handy ring is not only a beautiful accessory but first and foremost simply useful. It facilitates the secure handling of the smartphone, can be used as a practical smartphone stand (e.g. to watch videos) and offers a new and entertaining user experience; ideal conditions for using the handy ring as an innovative giveaway with logo branding.

2. Webcam cover
Who doesn’t know them? The coloured Post-it or adhesive tapes on the laptops in the university lecture hall. Why complicated when it’s simple and even more elegant? The solution is called Webcam Cover.

This is a smart slider that is glued over the camera of the laptop, tablet or smartphone. It solves two problems at once: On the one hand, it simply looks better, is permanent and counteracts post-it wear and tear. On the other hand, privacy is effectively protected. Of course, the slider is always nicely closed, except with video calls, when it can simply be pushed open.

Useful, inexpensive, innovative: The ideal promotional gift
This gadget is not only suitable as a cheap promotional item because it is an innovative problem solver, but also because your brand is very visible (and therefore top of mind). Meanwhile, we spend a lot of time on our laptops.

Another big advantage of this smart giveaway is that the packaging (at Twing) can be branded at the same time. Companies can thus optimally place their messages and deliver a completely thought-out product in their own corporate design.


3. Purse or cards wallets
Admittedly, the idea is not a world first. Correctly converted, a small, noble purse or a mini purse for cards is an ideal (premium) customer gift and therefore on our place 3 of the best promotional items 2018/2019

As a somewhat more expensive promotional gift, it is not a classic giveaway. For certain industries – e.g. security or finance – it is particularly suitable as a high-quality customer gift. It is best handed over personally in a small gift box, which can also be branded.


Logo branding is crucial
Especially for special occasions, such as Christmas, this personal promotional gift is something very special. It is important that the logo is only discreetly engraved. Especially with a wallet, a large branding can have a deterrent effect. After all, the aim is to ensure that the wallet is actually used in everyday life and gives the customer many years of pleasure. Imagine the positive word-of-mouth communication with your brand, possibly for years.



4. Ballpoint pen

As a reference and for comparison, we will evaluate below the (still) most widespread and therefore most popular promotional items according to the same 5 criteria: It is still the classic ballpoint pen.
