Because we’ve been small business owners for many years, my husband and I know the importance of getting our business name and phone number in front of as many people as possible.
My husband is an electrician, at least that’s one of the many hats he wears, and we’ve gone about advertising his services in a grass-roots style – bringing stacks of business cards to hardware stores, introducing the business to local builders, and hanging signs around town.
Most of the time I go along on these business blitz campaigns, because it’s a good excuse to go out to lunch with my electrician.
One day we hung signs that said ELECTRICIAN – INSURED & PHONE # in every town between here and the closest good pizza place (a forty minute drive – we’re picky). It was definitely a work date, but I’ll take what I can get. These signs were fabulous. They were red and white and could be spotted a mile away. They were also my idea.
We tacked signs to every visible telephone poll between here and Canada. Ok, not quite that far, but far enough.
During dinner my husband’s phone began ringing.
I got excited, because people were taking notice. With each ring, I added dollar signs in my head.
You can imagine my husband’s surprise when it was the police department informing him that he was violating town ordinances. I’ll just say he was less than pleased to retrace his miles and remove the signs. I never did get on the payroll as publicist.
Marketing is important for small businesses. Whenever ordering signs, stationery, or business cards, it’s important to put some thought into choosing the best online printer. Your material represents you, your business, and the quality of services you provide.
When a representative from Signazon.com contacted me, I immediately thought of those signs we hung in town after town. We can joke about it now, but I would have done much better ordering a magnetic sign my husband could put on his truck.
Signazon.com offers a wide range of services – everything from customizable magnetic signs to business cards.
Even if you don’t have a small business, you can add personality to your invitations, especially if you’re throwing a big anniversary party, birthday bash, or a baby shower.
I love this idea. You can go online, customize your cards or flyers and leave the hard work to the professionals. You can even add flair to your next party with a customizable banner.
I have similar style banners that I use when I set up at fairs to sell my vanilla extract.
And when the parties are done, the business connections made, and the products are sold, you can personalize your thank you cards with items from a full line of stationery.
They even make church flyers and banners!
Just be cautious when hanging banners or signs. Find out what the ordinances are in your town before you start getting calls from your local police station.
I can’t wait to customize something!
