Case studies, ideas, and tips for distributor self promos

You spend a lot of time helping your clients promote their business, service, product, or event. But what have you done lately for your business? We want to help you promote your business. Get ideas on how you can use custom branded giveaways from Warwick to build your brand and your business.


Idea

"Meet Me for Coffee"

Use gift card holders as giveaways while you prospect for new leads or referrals, or use them to boost sales from existing clients.

Buy your prospects a cup of coffee ($5 gift card) and offer to meet them for 30 minutes at a local café to chat about how you can help them grow business with a creative promotion.

Personalize the gift card holders with your own branding and contact info for a nice leave behind. Alternately, you can slip them into a holiday card for mailing.

Help Them Organize Their Ideas

In a meeting with your client? Gift them a flip pad to keep notes of the ideas you're pitching. Lots of room for full-color branding, plus plenty of space for contact info and social media icons.

Not sure what size will work best for your clients? Consider your audience. Will they want something more visible and easy to find at their desk? The FP57 is the larger notepad option (5" x 7-¾"). Or would they prefer something more on-the-go that easily fits in a purse or pocket? The FP35 measures 3" x 5" (smaller than a smartphone) and easily fits wherever they need to store it.

Give Their Photos a Home

How many times have you met a client in their office and seen their personal photos tacked to a board, hanging by magnets, or precariously propped up on a shelf? Next time you meet a client with a photo collection like that, go into your meeting prepared with self-branded picture frames.

Consider sturdy, 4" x 6" mat board frames imprinted with your logo. It's an inexpensive giveaway that solves a problem for them and creates better brand visibility for you.

Give a Talk, Give a Handout.

Want to realy get the word out about your business to local professionals? Put together a short 10 or 20-minute presentation for your local chamber of commerce group, networking meetup group, or business expo.

For the presentation, explain what you do as a promotional marketing consultant. Give valuable marketing tips and strategies, along with some case studies about successful promo campaigns you've led with past clients. Tailor the presentation to your audience, giving specific, actionable examples that would suit their niche market or vertical.

For this self promotion, consider handing out branded padfolios with pen holders. Since you are handing out padfolios meant for note-taking, give them to the attendees before the talk.
