Fun Promotional Products For Your Pubq
What’s a neighborhood pub need with promotional products? Promotional products are a good way to publicize your pub, increase your custom and earn a little extra on the side. Chances are that you’re not going to a trade show or conference, but there are still many ways that you can use promotional products to advertise your pub or restaurant.
Increase your visibility.
Get your name out on the streets and make it more well known by handing out little gadgets and gimmicks with the pub name on them. Pens are among the most popular promotional products sold. They come in hundreds of shapes and styles, so it's not outside the realm of imagination that you'll find a stress toy that fits the name or spirit of your pub. They make neat little handouts for various types of public events, gag prizes for contests and nearly any other reason you can think of.
Put together a promotional calendar to advertise your pub.
Calendars are one of the most widely used promotional products of all time, dating back to the first advertising promotions. Whoever first thought to put the name of his or her business on the bottom of a yearly calendar and give them out to customers was a sheer marketing genius. Have a few hundred or so calendars made up with your pub's front door or door sign on the front picture and hand them out to customers during the holiday season. They'll hang on walls in customers' homes all year long, with your name and information always in front of their eyes.
Promotional apparel worth sporting
A great way to increase name visibility is to sell promotional products with your pub name on them to customers and visitors. Think up a catchy tag line for a pub t-shirt, embroider the pub crest on a windbreaker or jacket, or print your pub name on a cap or visor – no matter what you choose, you'll find that your customers will happily pay for the privilege of being your billboards.
Promotional products for contests and giveaways
Does your pub host a poetry slam, karaoke, darts tournament, trivia night or any other contest or event? Promotional products printed with your pub name and the name of the event make great prizes for both participants and winners. Choose fun, funky and useful items like printed travel mugs for participants and something of a bit more value for winners of the contests.
If your pub also has other sidelines – catering, perhaps, or hosting events – you have even more reason for using promotional products to advertise your place.
