In our increasingly digital age, it may seem like there’s an app or piece of software that can do just about anything that we once used manual tools for. But the humble notebook is still just as important as it ever was, particularly for businesses. From corporate gifts to instant tech-free access to notes and reminders, here are just a few reasons why notebooks are still as relevant as ever.
There’s no learning curve
Not everyone is tech-savvy, so regardless of whether there’s a time tracking app or a reminder tool on your laptop, it’s not going to be accessible to everyone. Notebooks are simple but highly effective – you don’t need to learn how to use them or be near a power source to access them, making them accessible to all.
A range of styles
Whether it’s a flexible soft cover notebook, an A4 ring bound note pad or a stylish graphic covered design, there are notebooks to suit all ages and style preferences. You can find the ideal notebook for your tastes, whether you want a modern minimalist layout or something more luxurious. And because they’re so affordable, you can switch up the style as and when you please.
They make a great branded product
Notebooks are the ideal branded product for conferences, tradeshows or even just as a promotional gift for new clients or staff members. You can go bold with your design, making it front and centre of the cover, or subtle and discreet, depending on the purpose. But however you choose to brand your stationery, notebooks are the ideal premium product for your brand that helps you stand out from the crowd.
We’ve all been in a situation where we’ve needed to take down a phone number quickly or jot down a to-do to action after a meeting. Notebooks are the perfect tool for the job, in a way that laptops and software aren’t always practical. You may not have your computer close to hand, you might have run out of charge, or you might not have internet access when you need it the most. With a notebook, you still have an easy way of taking down the important information and accessing it whenever you need it, whether it’s details for a client, interview questions or an important order to place later in the day.
Notebooks are far from being obsolete, particularly in the business world. In fact, in some cases, using a notebook can be preferable to relying solely on tech alternatives. They’re a cost-effective marketing tool, practical for all situations and flexible enough to be taken with you on the go, whether you’re heading to an event, a meeting or just taking notes to schedule your day ahead.
