Outdoor Print Advertising Has a Big Impact on Little Budget
Whilst business in general continues to embrace the modern advertising avenues of the internet and social media platforms to promote their company, products and services, the more astute companies are still recognizing the value of more traditional marketing methods – amongst the most effective of these advertising options is print marketing.
Promotional printing continues to have a positive and influential effect on business and is a great option for smaller businesses who may be working on a limited marketing budget – this form of low-cost advertising can produce a healthy return for a small advertising budget.
Here are some forms of outdoor print advertising you should consider for your company marketing:
Banners are versatile and cost effective
Banner printing has always been an effective form of marketing your business. Custom printed banners are great vehicles for highlighting specific events or deals – they are economical to design and print, can be placed outside your business premises or at strategic vantage points to target your potential customers, and can be produced on a range of materials suitable to withstand all the many weather elements this country throws at them!
Banners are easy to put in place and remove when necessary, making them ideal for all-year-round marketing or for shorter, limited periods when required.
Using pavement signs targets passing footfall
Another highly-effective form of promotional printing and marketing is pavement signs – again, easy and cost effective to produce, these signs can be placed directly outside of your business attracting the attention of all the passing footfall.
Pavement signs are ideal for showcasing special offers or new products and, as both sides of the advertising boards can be used, will garner passers-by attention from both directions, allowing you to market your business to a larger number of people.
Posters are ideal for short term promotional use
Perhaps the most commonly-used form of promotional printing, outdoor posters are cheap, easy to produce and extremely versatile. You can keep your poster design simple or, as it can be viewed at close quarters and at a person’s leisure, have it as detailed as you want!
Outdoor posters can be printed in any size and be displayed in a plethora of different forms. The only drawback, perhaps, of this form of print marketing is that the posters are largely printed on paper and are, therefore, not as durable as other print marketing options. This may not make them practical for a sustained marketing campaign, but makes them ideal for short, direct advertising of sales, promotions, and special offers!
Flags are a great way to promote your brand and logo
Promotional printing vehicles such as flags are great for reinforcing your brand in the publics’ mind – printed flags are made from sturdy weather-proof materials so are ideal for promoting your business for long periods. It is best to keep your flag design simple as they are designed to be seen from distance, so making any text as short as possible will help – but flag printing is ideal for displaying your company logo and brand colours!
For ease of use and something unexpected, consider stickers
Another, sometimes overlooked and underestimated, form of print marketing is promotional stickers. They are easy to produce and a flexible and versatile form of promotional printing in that they can be placed just about anywhere – lamp posts, pavements, windows and, in many cases, as printed decals on cars and other vehicles! They are easy to affix and just as easy to remove, so can be moved from place to place and regularly replace and swapped.
Consider your marketing locations carefully
Whichever form, or forms, of promotional printing your business opts for, the main consideration for the best return is placement – ensure you choose the best and most appropriate locations for your print marketing campaign.
