Seasonal Promotional Products: How to “Fall” Into the Perfect Marketing Strategy

As a business owner, you may find yourself more engrossed in the day–to-day processes and challenges, than in the big picture. Instead of being narrowly focused, remember your primary goal–growing the business and building your brand.

To achieve that goal, you will have to play the role of a business owner AND a marketer. You need to have a strong, overall marketing strategy in place, which you can adhere to and implement consistently within your means.

By doing so, you have the ability to capitalize on seasonal marketing opportunities. Though your particular business may not be a simply seasonal one, you may have started to notice that consumers’ purchase behaviors are influenced by seasonal changes, trends, and events-i.e., Back to school, Easter, winter weather, etc.

A great way to leverage these occurrences is to develop promotional campaigns. In these efforts to develop marketing that actually resonates with consumers, offering custom branded promotional giveaways and incentives will help you to effectively attract customers, and retain them for the long run.

As the fall season is officially just a month away, we are here to provide your business with some fall marketing tips and ideas.

Fall Weather

The way that consumers, feel, their habits, their moods, and their interests are, believe it or not, influenced by changes in the weather. By keeping your brand relevant to the season and these seasonal desires, you are showing customers that they matter, and you can stay connected and engaged with those consumers. With the arrival of color changing leaves, and cooler days, consumers are dressing warmly and spending more time outdoors with the family, playing sports, taking pictures, camping, attending fall festivals, etc. To set your business apart from the competition, and to provide customers with incentives to begin or continue business with you, you could provide them with complementary, custom branded promotional gifts.

For example, with the Game Day Hooded Blanket in hand, watching a thrilling game of football couldn’t be more relaxing. It’s a cleverly designed combination hooded poncho, backpack, and even a blanket, with inner hand-warming pockets all in one! The backpack allows for easy storage and transportation. With all of these features and your corporate logo custom printed on it, customers will carry literally carry your brand to a larger audience, and you can set yourself apart from the competition.

Fall Holidays/Events

The fall season brings with it many notable holiday observances that you could utilize in promoting your business. For one, there’s Labor Day. Labor Day is generally celebrated by Americans as the symbolic end of summer, and it’s a time when people like to have picnics, barbecues, and other outdoor events. It is the perfect time to promote your business, and help customers enjoy the special day. Some custom branded giveaways could give your business the extra marketing edge.

The Chill and Grill Outdoor Kit takes the hassle out of outdoor shindigs. This handy portable grill comes equipped with a large cooler compartment and tongs included, as well as extra zippered compartments to store grilling supplies and food. Comfortable grip handles and a shoulder strap make it easy for customers to become the grill master of the party. The best part is that you can custom print your corporate logo on it in a large space. In doing so, consumers enjoy their get togethers, while you can effectively develop brand awareness.

Chill and Grill Outdoor Kit

This is just one instance in which providing your customers with custom promotional products can be useful for the fall holiday season. Consider how you could utilize the spirit of other fall holidays to promote your brand in a way that is truly relevant to consumers – especially your desired target audience.

Capturing the spirit of the season creatively will help your consumers connect and relate to your brand and your message. Custom products or schwag will make that possible within the scope of your budget and marketing strategy. You ultimately want to build your business and your overall image.

So, put on your marketing AND business leader caps, and “fall” into the perfect marketing strategy!

Promotional Products: A Class Act

School is back in session all across the country. That means new seasons of extracurricular activities like sports, theatre rehearsals, etc. In addition, individual school clubs and groups are planning different ways to generate interest in or raise money for themselves and their programs.

That applies to the PTAs as well, who are organizing their agendas and events for the year. Pushing potential members and event attendees into purchasing random items will certainly make them hesitant to become involved.

If you’re a club or event organizer, a positive alternative to this method is to offer complimentary, custom swag. This will allow you to spark a bit of curiosity and interest without being a complete turn off. Without further ado, here is YOUR lesson in custom promotion.

Club and Event Ideas

No matter what type of group or event you may have, keeping personal belongings in order isn’t easy for everyone. That’s why a sturdy cinch pack or drawstring bag is a custom giveaway that’s appropriate for anyone. Offering individuals any one of these sturdy and stylish bags that are available in several different colors, styles, and patterns, and custom printing your group name or logo on it will build awareness, and act as a useful souvenir. Those individuals will be appreciative and more inclined to consider participating in respective activities.

Color Splash Promotional Cinch Pack

Also, knowing the type of group or event you have, e.g. a fraternity, a sports team, an orientation, you can provide associated custom branded giveaways.

For example, fraternities and sororities may want to proudly print their letters on a comfortable and attractive t-shirt, while for a PTA event or school orientation, a fun and complimentary custom giveaway item could be a pencil stress ball.

On the other hand, a unique giveaway for an athletic team could be a bold Pencil pennant to stir up some real school spirit. With your organization’s information printed on these items, you can generate buzz keep your brand at the top of people’s minds, and encourage engagement from potential members.

So if you want to build brand awareness without being a bother, custom promotional giveaways will do the trick.

You will remind potential and current members/invitees of your value, add some genuine personality to your brand, and Make the right impression.™

Happy back to school!

Why You NEED Leed’s Promotional Products in your Marketing Arsenal

For a marketing message to resonate with an audience, a business should be able to show how their product or service will improve the lives of their customers in an impressionable and memorable way.

In order to be memorable, it’s important for a business to differentiate itself from its competitors. Many businesses mistakenly think that it takes a big marketing budget and/or team to achieve this goal.

Promotional products, however, allow a business to creatively find its way in a crowded market, no matter the business size or budget, and without sacrificing quality.

The award-winning line of promotional products created by Leed’s will help any business attract customers, and most importantly, to be memorable. So here are some ways in which Leed’s promotional products can make your brand become a Leed-er.

Hit Your Target

Every business has a specific target audience for their products or services. A business then creates its marketing strategies based on an understanding of that audience. Whether your customer is a lover of technology, a fitness fanatic, or a busy businessman, there’s a Leed’s promotional product to help your business connect with potential customers AND remind existing customers of your business message and value. For example, a techie can appreciate a custom branded mobile power bank and flashlight, while an avid outdoors-man would like a 24-can access cooler. Customers will be inclined to support your brand if you can show them that you really are committed to meeting their needs and exceeding expectations. Custom promotional products that are actually useful to customers will make all the difference.

Reinforce Your Brand

Marketing is all about communicating a cohesive brand message to customers through several different touch points or outlets. Once customers have heard your message, you need to make the effort to reinforce it. The last thing that you want to do when it comes to marketing is following the “set it and forget it” strategy. Superior quality promotional products by Leed’s can be a unique means to reinforce your brand in a way that resonates with customers. Offering customers promotional products like a chevron shopper tote or a fleece custom blanket, with your logo custom printed on them, keeps your brand fresh in their minds, and inspires them to maintain communication with you.

 Build A Community

When your brand has a distinct voice and personality, you can gain the trust and respect of customers, and they will share your message with others. Your business, in turn, gets free advertising courtesy of the people who matter the most – your very own customers. In this way, you’re building the very foundation of brand loyalty. Leed’s promotional products successfully help your brand tell its story and bring a sense of cohesiveness to your marketing campaign. You would be surprised how a bottle opener or a 5-piece knife block set, when custom branded, can bolster your brand reputation while still connecting with customers.

Power Bank 101: Your Guide to Promotional Power Banks

With most people owning a smartphone, tablet, laptop or all of the above, portable chargers – aka “power banks” – have quickly become sought after tech gadgets. This hot techie accessory has many monikers – power bank, charger, emergency battery and power rock – just to name a few.

One can easily spend upwards of $40 purchasing a power bank at retail price. Be a lifesaver to your clients – give them the gift of power with a personalized portable charger! Engrave your logo onto a power bank, and they’ll think of your brand every time they plug their device into the emergency battery. And with everything from laser engraving to 1 color screen print and full color design, the different ways to prominently customize your logo are essentially endless!

Here are some of my favorite portable chargers – from basic to more high tech.

1. Jolt Mobile Phone Charger

The Jolt Charger is the classic type of power bank and the most popular among users. With this product, you’re able to charge a smartphone 100% (due to the 2200mAh battery) – providing up to 8 additional hours of talk time. This is an ideal battery to have in your purse or suitcase, and this gadget is reliable for someone who travels or is away from a power outlet most of the day.

2. Portable Dual-Port Charger

If you’re looking for smartphone and tablet emergency batteries, I would recommend a dual port charger with a 7800 mAh battery. mAh (milliampere hour) is the determining measure for how much energy the battery will hold. This power bank can handle charging a smartphone AND a tablet to full battery with ease, and it also has 2 designated ports to allow the proper amps to the device at hand. My favorite one is the Portable Dual-Port Charger. Its digital battery indicator and cool laser logo customization illuminates your logo, making this power bank the ultimate luxury option. I like the idea of having one battery that can charge both!
