Wear Your Advertising

Newspaper ads too expensive? TV out of the question? Try having customers WEAR your ads. Logos and slogans printed on shirts, hats, even underwear is a hot trend in advertising. People in the ad biz call them "wearables."

The most recent figures show the use of advertising wearables in the United States is up 25% to $12 Billion.

There is a big increase in the number of companies that allow casual dress days. That is a great opportunity to get your wearable message in front of lots of people in a particular industry. Prospects are much more likely to consider and purchase business services and products if they get your ad message while they are at work (as opposed to when they are driving or sitting around the house).

Check your local yellow pages under "advertising specialties." It is not unusual to find a small home-based shop producing top notch T-shirts and jackets. If there isn't a supplier near you, email us and we'll forward information on our suppliers.

Keep Marketing

Small businesses tend to stop marketing when business picks up. Then they begin marketing frantically when business slows down.

The solution: do a moderate amount of marketing consistently to keep the business pipeline full.
