How to Get Your Business Prepared for Summer Holiday Promotions
In case you hadn’t noticed, the summer holidays are approaching, which means that it’s high time you get your business prepared for themed promotions! Whether you’re looking to promote your business during the coming months or you’re simply organizing the party or get-together of a lifetime on behalf of a specific organization or group, you’ll need to be prepared. It’s time to start thinking about gift ideas that will coincide with some of the major events on our way. So, what are we waiting for?! Let’s get those promotional wheels turnin’!
Few people would argue that the weeks leading up to Memorial Day renew the interest in an all-time favorite pastime: grilling. If you enjoy cooking good food, then you already know that there’s nothing quite like the feeling of breaking in that new grill you just got for Christmas. Heck, even if your grill is a decade old, nothing beats the taste of flame-broiled goodness that’s ready-to-eat. Veggies, steaks, burgers—you name it; it’s just better on the grill. So, why not make it a point to offer something practical at your next fundraiser or charitable event? A Grill Master Barbecue Kit or, even better, a BBQ Set with Apron would do quite nicely. Slap your company name and logo on the sets and get in on the home-style spirit!
Of course, the big summer events don’t end there—not by a long shot. The main date of national pride is headed your way next, and you probably already know what I’m talking about. July 4th, Independence Day, ID4—call it what you will, if you’re a red, white, and blue-blooded American, you know it’s the celebration to end all celebrations, and you’d better be ready for it! Get those Flag Stress Relievers, U.S.A. Pinwheels, and Firework Hand Fans ready, because if you want your company or small business to be a memorable part of the festivities, then you’re going to have to contribute.
Now, don’t forget: hot on the heels of a patriotic summertime is our trustworthy friend, the first Monday of September, and we all know what that means. Labor Day! Write this one down, because it’s one that most folks tend to care a great deal about. It’s a day away from the workplace, after all. And those who work hard tend to play hard—or at least relax hard. With that in mind, be prepared to help your employees relax, ideally with some comfy (and sporty) custom apparel. Since the cooler months will be just around the corner by Labor Day, consider the Hanes Ultimate Cotton Sweatshirt or Hooded Sweatshirt as giveaways. All you have to do is add your custom logo to ensure that it’s your brand on everyone’s mind until next summer!
It’s gearing up to be a hot season for well-placed advertising, so don’t be the only business to miss out on the promotional opportunities. And don’t worry, no matter which day of the year you’re looking to kick off your next marketing campaign, Quality Logo Products will have plenty of advice to offer!
