Cool Giveaway Ideas For Expos, Trade Shows and Conferences

Cool Giveaway Ideas For Expos, Trade Shows and Conferences

Looking for some clever giveaway ideas for an upcoming expo, trade show or conference? It’s time to look beyond the usual promotional products and think effective, memorable, and a wow factor? Here are some cool giveaway ideas to consider. 1. Clothing Often businesses spend a lot of money on giveaways, and it’s usually money down the drain because the products are not targeted to the individual nor do they usually help in making a sale. Have you ever considered clothing? A safe bet is a T-shirt or a cap – these will generally be worn so it helps to generate some publicity. 2. Food There have been many successful giveaways related to food.  It could be an individually-wrapped tea bags where your  business information and possibly a coupon are stamped onto each wrapper.  It could be a mini chocolate bar or for the health conscious, a sachet of muesli. What do you like, or more importantly, what do your clients love? 3. Skip the business cards Almost everyone gives away pens. They are handy, lightweight and don’t cost much.  What else is your target customer or client likely to use over and over again? Bookmarks? Stationary? Skip the business card and opt for something they’ll use repeatedly, for years and years. 4. A care package For something a little different, think about a care package.  You know the kit of bits and pieces that’s used over and over and often shared around.  If you are at a conference where attendees are on their feet all day, make a statement and offer a package, complete with bandages, a small snack, pen, notepad and a maybe a USB drive with your...
How To Make Your Brand Go Viral Offline

How To Make Your Brand Go Viral Offline

Every small business owner dreams of the day their brand goes viral! We spend countless hours promoting on social media with  memes and sharing content online in the hope that everyone sees it all.  An important element not to be overlooked is how your brand can go viral offline too! Yes,  viral marketing happens offline. In fact, the best brand-building buzz can happen completely offline. Here are three ways you can give your brand a kick start this year. 1. Word of mouth We all know how effective word of mouth promotions can be.  In fact it can make or break some businesses.  For better or worse, people will share their thoughts and experiences about your brand with friends and family over coffee. They will rate your product quality, your customer service, your abilities, your product range – anything that is noteworthy. When you focus on providing a quality product or service for your customers, you are creating something worth talking about. It’s human nature to rely on the opinions of those around them that they trust.   Calling upon friends, family and co-workers before decisions are made about where and what to purchase. Think about it. If you want people to talk about your business, product or service, you have to give them something to talk about. 2. Exclusive promotions Everyone has that inner desire to make it to the big time, get lucky and win the lottery or find some other path to happiness and success. Feed off these emotions to get people to participate in your contest or promotion. You’ve seen signs saying “Register here for a new car!” Many...

Essential Tips To Building Your Small Business

As a small business owner, do you sometimes get the feeling that promoting your business is like a nightmare Small budgets, limited resources and competition that continues to close in on you makes it very hard.  Getting your name out there can be a challenge. Everyone wants to see growth, but how can your business make that happen? Here are 5 basic marketing strategies to help you gain clients and promote your business this year. 1. Getting your name out there Networking is one very successful and inexpensive way to put your business on the map.  Whether you choose to create and using social media such as Google Plus and LinkedIn to engage with your target audience or seek referrals, don’t forget that you can also network offline. If you do choose to participate in face-to-face networking, offer business cards or something that is branded or personalised with your contact information to give to those you meet.   Promotional products like pens, notebooks and even mints or magic message beans are great items to share with prospective clients or customers. A practical item will call your business to mind with every use. 2. Keep in touch Keeping in touch with your current customers ensures that you stay in their focus. But be mindful of too much contact. You don’t want to step over the line and spam them. Have customers or social media followers sign up for your newsletter to receive updates on current deals, new products and services or recent happenings in your business. Your customers will be more likely to remember you if you’re staying in contact with them. Entice them to stop by your small...
How To Distribute Promotional Products

How To Distribute Promotional Products

Depending on your choice of promotional product, there are a number of common methods of distribution.  Each with their own benefits and downsides. How do you distribute your promotional products? Handout One of the easiest and least expensive ways to reach out to a great number of people is to hand out your promotional products. Other than time and manpower, the cost is next to nothing and you benefit by making face-to-face connections with each and every potential client. Mail Mail is a very popular method although this technique requires a little more work ensuring you have the correct name and address of everyone.  It does however add a substantial cost and depending on the size and weight of your item this can be a large deterrent.  Don’t forget too, the mail service is not always kind and gentle to our items so your well thought out product may not arrive looking as nice as you hoped. Goodie Bags Trade shows, markets and other events are great to get involved in, and particularly having your product included in giveaway or goodie bags.   There will no doubt be a lot of competition however as many are competing for the attention of the same audience so select your product widely.  A simple pamphlet or brochure will probably get tossed.  Consider adding something that stands out amongst the crowd.   There are plenty of other distribution channels for promotional products. What is your experience?...
