Custom Outdoor Products: Thinking “Outside” the Box

You have a business and a fantastic product or service. But, now you have to engage in one of the most essential activities to build your business—attracting potential customers.

Even if you already have customers, to keep the business going and growing, attracting even more customers should be an ongoing effort. To do that, you need to have a unique point of view, and give customers a compelling reason to communicate with you. While every business is different, marketing remains necessary for every one. Ideally, you should be using multiple channels to find and attract customers.

So, as a supplement (for larger businesses) or an alternative (for smaller businesses) to traditional marketing efforts like print or television media, think about using promotional products. When it comes to advertising, over time, the attention span of customers has become shorter and shorter, making it even more difficult for businesses to build their brands. In turn, businesses have to think outside the box to garner customers.

What better way to literally do that than with custom promotional products? Since it’s summer, customers can take your brand outdoors with unique custom outdoor products.


Instead of simply telling customers how wonderful you are, listen for what they really want, and then satisfy that want. At this time of the year, customers are spending more time outdoors with friends and family, hosting parties, having picnics or just relaxing. For these reasons, providing customers with promo items like custom coolers is a good incentive for them to conduct business with you. Your company logo or contact information can easily be printed onto these custom coolers, which makes it really simple to take an ordinary cooler, and turn it into an effective advertising tool. Our selection of promotional coolers come in various sizes and colors designed with the customer in mind, like the Collapsible Party Cooler, which can securely hold a whopping 28 beverage cans and even comes with a retractable bottle opener!

Once customers have coolers packed with cold drinks close by, they will need somewhere comfortable to sit back and relax. Whether it’s at a concert, a sporting event, or just to soak up some sun, a custom promotional chair is the perfect seat. By providing customers an enjoyable day outside, your brand can enjoy greater visibility, and in turn, you will expand your audience. Custom printing a swag item like the Fanatic Event Folding Chair with your corporate logo will surely help your brand stand out in the crowd. This chair also conveniently has built-in cup holders and even a matching carrying case.

After chilling out with a refreshing beverage for a bit, customers have picked up the pep to play some sports and games. We’ve got custom sports products to equip the athletes and the cheering section too, from soccer balls to golf tees to face paint and more. These offer wonderful branding opportunities that really allow your brand to be seen on a larger scale, regardless of how small your business may be. You can really get more bang for your buck, especially since unique branded swag makes a statement and illustrates your brand personality without having to spend a lot of money. Take a look at this handy Stake Your Spot Kit for a great golf game, and imagine seeing your brand front and center and having your message heard loud and clear.

Custom outdoor promotional products will freshen up your marketing strategy in a way that makes your products, services AND your brand message resonate with customers.

Because at the end of the day, if you want to get the attention of your customers, you have to give it to them first.


Trending Now: Promotional Products for an Unforgettable Summer

Licking sweet popsicles, going for a dip in the swimming pool, lazing in a hammock. Many consider these just a few of the ingredients for a perfect summer – us included.

What you may not know about the summertime months, however, is that a little creative marketing can help you incorporate your brand into the summer mix.

Customers tend to have a soft spot for brands that reward them for their support, and at the same time, show some personality. Custom products are a unique means to do precisely that.

Here is a selection of promotional products that can turn an average summer into an unforgettable (and branded) one:

RoxBox Capsule Bluetooth Speaker

Moisture doesn’t have to put a damper on the party, because the speaker will still work regardless of the external condition, and as an added bonus, this custom speaker comes equipped with a removable carabineer and a compact carrying case. With all of these unique features that already impress customers, the only thing that you could do to make it even better is to remind them who is making it all possible – your brand!

On the back of their golf cart, you’ll find bags full of golf balls, golf clubs, golf tees, towels and everything else you could imagine for a day well spent on the course.

And with the rise in popularity for the game of golf, promotional golf products have rapidly become more important and more effective than ever.

Promotional Products to Save Your Snowmageddonpocalypse

The Pinnacle Promotions office is located in the Atlanta area. In 2014, we survived, along with our friends, family and colleagues, through one of the worst snowstorms in recent memory. Call it what you like: Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, or more accurately Snowmageddonpocalypse. People were stranded in their cars for anywhere from 1 – 20 hours. Children were stranded at schools, and worse on school buses and brave teachers and good Samaritans kept them safe and warm. There are many theories as to why this happened. And as there are many blame theories, there are that many stories or more of miraculous and random acts of kindness and selflessness.

Pinnacle Promotions was uniquely equipped to continue servicing our clients during the storm. Our account teams were able to address our customer’s needs through proprietary tools and resources, and make the necessary adjustments to make sure our clients weren’t left out in the cold.

In talking with many who were stuck or stranded, we heard over and over about the items that they really wished they had with them to weather the storm.

Some of the top comments we heard:

-“I wish I had a blanket in the car.” A customized throw or blanket would be the perfect winter item to have in the car at all times and be ready in the summer to host a picnic.

-“Wish I had an external phone charger. I didn’t expect my phone to die and not be able to use my car charger.” A branded portable power source is a price-effective and compact way to come to the rescue of your clients and employees.

-“Can’t wait to get home and have a warm cup of coffee.” Many of those who spent hours on the roadways trying to get home were relieved to walk into their homes and grab their favorite mug to sit down for a drink to warm them through.

-And here at Pinnacle, we grabbed promotional ice scrapers on our way out the door to help us get the snow and ice off our windshields for the drive home.

What items do you think would be most helpful in a snowstorm? Check out our Winter Gear section for some great ideas.

And lastly, a special thanks to all of the emergency service personnel, road crews and good Samaritans who helped those who were waylaid by the storm.

Take the Party To Go

The leaves are changing here in Atlanta and that means I’m scheduling my yearly pilgrimage into the mountains of North Carolina for some great views of the changing foliage and to do some light hiking and sightseeing.

We have one specific campground that we’ve made part of our tradition to stop and enjoy a nice river-side lunch by. This year instead of dashing to the nearest convenience store because no one remembered to buy and pack food beforehand, I’m bringing along one of our awesome promotional coolers.

I’ve had my eye on the Igloo Party to Go Cooler ever since I assisted with the filming of the product video. Not only does it have a great name (Party to Go sounds like a themed party the local college I used to dj at had once), it’s also roomy enough for 20 cans. I plan to fill it up with a few bottles of cider, that I’ll open with the handy-dandy attached bottle opener, and some sandwiches and some deserts. Items like coolers are a great way to become parts of your customers or clients best memories and give you plenty of exposure when they are trekked around. Useful and sturdy, two of my favorite characteristics of any long-lasting promotional product.

Picnic Refreshers

Summer is starting to wind down, and while that may be unfortunate for the school aged kids, it’s great for emptying the local parks. For me, empty parks mean afternoons spent in a sundress, a floppy hat, and oversized sunglasses while snacking on whatever fits into my tote bag and is easy to haul along with my dog. But now with picnic themed promotional items from Pinnacle, my picnics are going to get an upgrade before the summer is over.

So far my favorite is the Beach Picnic Pack. Despite the name, it doesn’t have to be used just at the beach. The insulated compartment means that my food will stay warm or cool and comes with a complete picnic set for 4.

Beach Picnic Pack

Best of all, since it comes in three bright summery colors, no matter what color I chose, it’ll match my favorite summertime outfits.

Schwinn Bicycles and Custom Sports Bottles for Summer Fun

When was the last time you spent an afternoon riding a Schwinn bicycle, sipping from a custom sports bottle, and waving to your neighbors with the wind blowing through your hair? I’m guessing, for most of our readers, not recently, although I know my coworker Acree happens to be an avid cyclist.

Nostalgia marketing is a powerful technique used by marketers to capitalize on the sentimental associations that their target audiences harbor for certain products and/or experiences. At 23, I rarely find myself feeling nostalgic about my past, but last Sunday afternoon, as I ventured out to Atlanta’s Virginia Highlands neighborhood to enjoy the beautiful weather with my dog and my sister, I spied a father on the sidewalk across the street teaching his young daughter how to ride her bicycle without training wheels.

For more about Schwinn’s advertising campaign and my latest personal wave of nostalgia, keep reading…

Apply the promotional sunscreen and get outside!

There is nothing I like better than the all two brief weeks before and after summer, when the weather is just right to enjoy the sunny afternoon outside. With numerous outdoor festivals, concerts and events going on each weekend, it’s easy to find an excuse to get outside.

When planning for your spring and summer events and promotions, consider bringing a little of the outdoors into your campaigns. Promotional sunscreen and other outdoor related products are an inexpensive and thoughtful way to reach out to your employees and clients during the spring and summer seasons.
