Promotional Ideas for small business

6 Holiday Promotional Ideas for Small Business | Swipely

This takes us right back to my point in promotion #1, people love free stuff. Find a good venue to hand these out, whether it's a county fair, mall kiosk, or downtown shopping area. All that matter is that there are people there who would be happy getting a free shirt.

You'll get views of your logo, name, and even slogan if it's on there. Add a web address they can find you and you're well on your way to getting some fresh traffic. Keep in mind that the quality of this traffic may be somewhat poor as you can't control where people wear them.

4. Contest - This idea varies from a giveaway since there is typically one or only a few winners. But with fewer winners comes a better reward, so choose wisely with this one.

Here at Cyclone, we are actually thinking of running a contest at some point in the future. If all goes according to plan the prize would be a website designed and developed free of charge. Pretty enticing, eh?

See the point of a contest is to create a promotion with much more value than your typical incentive marketing. Give your customers something they really want and see the value in.

It creates new awareness, interest in whatever your offering, and hopefully lots of people coming to your site or door. Try to use it fairly infrequently, so it becomes a special experience for potential customers and not something your trying to do just because your desperate for sales.

No matter which you choose, just make sure it is the best possible fit for your business.

You could do that for some of them

I like that idea of those clear plastic bags with a ribbon on top. You could have a couple of "New Puppy" baskets with those in it. You could have them themed for a boy or girl puppy, with even a picture frame in it. Those plastic bags could also be used as promotional giveaways to business that have a dog on the premise.
As for the 1st plastic bag, I don't like it. It doesn't look professional enough to me. Those kinds of bags come open too easily and don't seem all that durable. If you poke and stretch it, it may get discolored, which could make for more waste when you're putting the treats in them (you don't want the packaging to look like it's been through a lot)
