Promotional Products: Holiday Marketing Ideas and Tips

Promotional Products: Holiday Marketing Ideas and Tips

The holiday season is the perfect time to show appreciation for your employees, customers, and your vendors. With so many cards and gifts given at Christmas, it’s easy to get overlooked. Stand out from the crowd by giving at Thanksgiving or the New Year.

Your Budget

Before you start shopping, determine how much you can spend per item. An easy method is to divide your budget by the number of items you’ll need. Be sure to allocate some money for set up fees and shipping or delivery. Order at least a few weeks in advance to avoid rush charges.

Always Order a Few Extra

When calculating how many items you need, always order a few extra. Something always pops up – folks you forgot, new people, someone the boss wants to include, you name it.

Quality Matters

Quality gifts always reflect well on the gift giver. When you select a brand well-known for quality, like Yeti drinkware or coolers, you’ll elevate your brand even more and build more loyalty with your gift recipient.

Popular Items for 2020

When it comes to gifts, your options are virtually unlimited. Your company logo can be imprinted on just about anything. There is something for any price point. Looking for ideas? Talk with one of our promotional products specialists.

Secrets Every Business Owner Must Know About Vehicle Wraps

Secrets Every Business Owner Must Know About Vehicle Wraps

Would you like your company to be advertised to tens of thousands of people every day? People right in your service area? Have you thought about vehicle wraps?

Imagine advertising that has:

  • No monthly rent
  • No payment per view or per impression
  • No recurring charges
  • No fast-forwarding through your message
  • Local visibility 24 hours day right where you find your customers
  • Visibility to all potential customers of any age or demographic
  • High effectiveness at a low cost

How do you accomplish all this with one marketing strategy?

There’s a simple answer: vehicle wraps!

The public gives vehicle wraps two thumbs up!

  • More than 30% of survey respondents will make a purchase decision based on a vehicle wrap.
  • 98% of respondents report that vehicle wraps create a positive impression of the company.
  • Vehicle wraps are memorable! 97% of survey respondents recall an ad on a vehicle.

Wrapping a single car, a full fleet, or trucks of any size, turns your vehicles into mobile billboards for your products and services, attracting attention wherever you drive or park.

And your potential customers will notice!

  • “Individual vehicle advertising generates up to 70,000 daily vehicular impressions,” according to ARD Ventures.
  • “Mobile advertising generates 2.5 times more attention than a static billboard,” says Perception Research.
  • “Messages on outdoor mobile billboards have a 97% recall rate,” RYP & Becker Group indicates.

In fact, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America says vehicle advertising reaches more consumers at a lower cost per thousand impressions than any other form of advertising.

Vehicle wraps can be applied to any vehicle

  • Buses and shuttle vans
  • Cars and motorcycles
  • Trucks of all sizes
  • Snowmobiles
  • Boats

When you are ready to have your vehicle wrapped, select an experienced, certified installer, like Cascade Print Media. Installed correctly, your vehicle wrap will protect the exterior of your vehicle. When you are ready to change or remove your wrap, our certified installers will reveal a surface just like new – perfect paint with no bleeding, scratches, or fading.
