Get Your Marketing Plan Into Top Shape for Bikini Season!
I worked retail all through high school and college, so I’m used to thinking a few seasons ahead. It was barely Halloween when the Christmas items would start showing up. Independence Day wasn’t even over before the back-to-school specials hit the floor. And the most harrowing of them all – the Valentine’s Day flowers had not yet wilted when bikinis started showing up on store racks.
Ah, yes, bikini season is nigh.
There’s still some wiggle room for us Midwesterners before it’s bathing suit weather, so there’s no excuse not to shed those winter pounds. I know I’ve got more than a few Christmas cookies hanging onto my hips for dear life… and I’m certainly not alone.
When the sun comes out for the first time in weeks and people start going outside voluntarily, it’s like everyone suddenly remembers that a summer is coming. According to a highly scientific poll of my friends and family, the average American is much more likely to get fitness-crazy in the early spring than any other time of year, even around New Year’s.
What can you do to capitalize on the zeal of the (seeming few) Americans who do not want to look like walruses on the beach? Get your logo imprinted on some excellent workout equipment, of course!

Slim Polly (20 oz.)
The customized water bottle called the Slim Polly is my all time favorite Quality Logo Product. Honestly. It was one of the first things I checked out when I started at Quality Logo (almost five years ago now!), and I’ve always recommended it to customers at every opportunity. The bright colors are truly eye catching, and the tight lid prevents the leaking you often see with the cheap water bottles you find at the store.
