It might only be the first week in October, but smart business owners think ahead, right? And let’s face it: 2013 will be here before we know it. Now’s the time to think about what types of pocket calendars you’d like to order for the new year.
But before we get into some of our recommendations, let’s discuss several ways you can use custom calendars to promote your business.
1. End-of-year gifts for customers and hot prospects. Order now and you’ll have these in plenty of time to include them with end-of-year greetings to customers. You can also use them between now and December 31 as great leave-behinds when you meet with prospects or networking contacts. Calendars stand a great chance of landing a place of honor on a person’s desk in the office – trust us! Bonus: at Amsterdam Printing, we offer elegant pocket calendar gift boxes as well.
2. Stocking stuffers for employees. Yes, you should give your employees custom calendars of their own, but consider giving them a bundle that they can use as stocking stuffers for their own family and friends.
3. Trade show season. January and February are big trade show months, and you’d be surprised at how many people still need a simple, current pocket calendar. Order the calendars now for customers and prospects (as we described above), but take any “leftovers” with you to trade shows in January and February.
