Since my blog's been growing over the past year, I've been thinking of additional ways to promote Susie B. Homemaker. I try to keep my content current and fresh, I've changed my design to make it look more professional and appealing, I add more giveaways on a regular basis- all things to help draw in more readers.
But I want to take it a step further and be able to give local moms something with my blog name on it or for when I send a giveaway to a winner. I won a giveaway from another blog a while back and when it came in the mail, she had put all the giveaway items in a cute tote bag with her blog name on it. I thought it was a unique idea and it was an item I could actually use.
I think something smaller like promotional pens with my website name on it, would be awesome to give to other moms at playdates or at the hair salon. I like the idea of being able to give someone something other than a business card. And unlike a business card, it's not going to just get thrown away or lost. They're more likely to actually use it and be reminded of my website every time they do.
Personalized pens or pencils seems like the perfect way to promote my blog since it's something everyone uses at some point or another. I always carry a pen in my purse for making grocery lists and jotting things down while I'm out. There's also a small basket of pens and pencils in my kitchen for when I need to write something on my calendar.
You can find lots of different promotional products for your blog or business from ImprintsOnline.com- pens, pencils, t-shirts, coffee mugs, water bottles... whatever fits best with your brand name. And they're all great ways to make your company or brand stand out from the rest.
