June 2013 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!

Can you believe that it’s almost June? It feels like 2013 is just flying by. It seems like we were just brushing the snow off of our cars and now it’s summertime!

But I have a feeling that the majority of you don’t mind at all. And right along with the warmer weather comes a ton of holidays and awareness weeks. With Great Outdoors Month, and International Picnic Day, June is the perfect time to reach out to customers who love spending time outside. Inexpensive items like promotional water bottles and custom bags are great giveaways that your customers can really use on their treks outdoors!

That’s not all that June has in store! Let’s check out what else is happening this month.

Already starting to generate some giveaway ideas? Here are a few more for you!

Grocery stores, co-op farms, and farmers markets should rejoice that it’s National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month! Coax some extra clients to your stores and booths with some special deals or exciting giveaways. Fruit stress balls act as long term business cards and adorable desk decorations. Or you can consider passing out cotton tote bags with your brand logo on them. Less plastic and more brand recognition? How could you lose?

Since school is (or will be) out, the local zoos and aquariums will be full of families. That, along with Zoo and Aquarium Month makes it a great time for some extra activities. You can have exclusive tours with zookeepers and keepsakes, or you can have special family or young adult activities with t-shirt giveaways! Consider partnering with local businesses or vendors for special block parties or after-hours bashes.

With all these fun and exciting things to do outside, your customers will be spending plenty of time in the sun. In addition to sunscreen or aloe vera packets, you might want to pass out company hats. The visor will shield your fans and employees from the sun and the bold imprint on the front will promote your brand wherever they go!

Now how about a promotion for you, dear readers! We’re excited to celebrate Bubba Day for the third year in a row! We’ve had some awesome celebrations in 2011 and 2012, but we’re excited for the promotion this year. Stay tuned for details about how we’re going to celebrate our mascot’s big day this year!
