Finally, it’s time to talk summer promotions! Here in Colorado, it seems to come so late! After suffering through chilly weather and the rain of early springtime, summer is just around the corner! Before the weather dries out completely, take time to forecast and develop your marketing plan for the summertime! People are taking to the outdoors and are out-and-about on the weekends and in the evenings again… how can you use this to increase your business presence and generate leads and improve morale?
Throw a Summer Kick Off Barbeque! Regardless of what industry you do business in, gathering with clients, community partners, and staff is an excellent way to kick off the season and get conversations going. Take to the parking lot, a park, or the beach and host VIPs with some ribs! It’s the perfect chance to have face-to-face interactions to let everyone know what’s new with your business.
Here’s some more ideas:
- Have a raffle or recognize employees with traveling BBQ Grills or BBQ Tool Sets.
- Have games like Corn Hole, horseshoes, badminton for the whole family and teams.
- Activities for the kids- Bubbles~ Paddle Balls ~Flyers that can double as a paper plate holder!
- Give promotional Personal Coolers and logo’d Drinkware, like can coolers to remind them all Summer of the event.
And Don’t Forget to take pictures of activities and in front of your custom trade show backdrop banner. Share images in your monthly newsletter and on your social platforms. Improves moral and community recognition!
Investing in a great grill will give you an excuse to make it a tradition: happy hours, staff lunches, and future promotions. Any left over logo’d promo items can be given away to others all summer and again at your Chili Cook off in the fall! I love planing ahead!
