What is "schwag"?

"Schwag" (or swag) is a term that has several meanings. "Schwag" can refer to low-grade marijuana or to any promotional materials given out to employees and loyal customers as a part of promotional campaign. Likewise, you can purchase all kinds of "schwag" from a company if you wish to support what it's doing and to be a spreading the good news about its products everywhere you go. I'm currently working on researching and ordering some schwag for OnlinEnglish promotion. Incidentally, I thought I'd ask you a few questions dealing with this.

What kind of schwag do you usually receive? What items you think you would buy? Please, take a minute to answer these two questions! Thank you :)

  1. Hello Elena! Just offtopic. I think it would be great if you will record podcasts as mirror of yours articles. For example on podfm.ru or rpod.ru.

  2. Michael, thanks a lot. I've been trying to do podcasts for my posts on this blog, but I haven't been as consistent. But, I just looked at one of those websites, and I will definitely try posting my own programs :) I appreciate your off-topic comment, those are the most valuable! Most of the stuff I do online is because of those off-line topics by my students. Thanks a lot.

  3. Incidentally, what kinds of topics do you think would be of interest? Should I do my podcasts in English or in Russian? What do you think?

  4. Hmnn.. I think that my suggestion to record podcasts as mirror of the articles was wrong. I forgot that podcasts should be at least 10min or more. This should be another format of information. Articles too short for it. But maybe you have ideas for podcasts :)

  7. alright, that's good enough. I'm actually contemplating either a new video series or a podcast series. Either way, thanks for the idea, and I will conduct the survey.
