The Best Summer Marketing Options for Your Business

Posted on May 1, 2013 by

Marketing is important to the success of any business. If you do not take the time to creatively market your business, it will be difficult for your business to stand out amongst the competition. One way you can creatively market your business is to take advantage of the unique opportunities each season of the year presents. For instance, the summer months offer several different marketing options for businesses looking to increase their brand awareness.


Outdoor Signage

Along with warm weather, summertime brings a lot more foot traffic for businesses. Placing a sign in front of your business is an excellent way to market your company. By using a sandwich board sign in front of your business location, you are able to let the people passing by know about any current sales or specials your business is running. The attention your sign receives can help bring new customers into your business. These folks may not have otherwise stopped, but did decide to see what you offer because of the sign listing your current promotions.

An outdoor banner will work well for a business during the warmer months simply because people are more active and more likely to be outside when the weather is nice. With more people out and about, it is easier for your business to capture their attention with a well-designed sign that demonstrates the value your business can provide them.

Fairs, Festivals and Events

Another creative way to advertise during warm months is to become a contributor to local fairs, festivals or other outdoor events. When the weather starts to turn nice, there will be a series of outdoor events in your area. Researching the different events that will take place in your area will allow you to see which events will attract a large number of your target audience. With such a large number of consumers congregating in one place, these outdoor events present an excellent marketing opportunity.

Once you have found an event or two that you feel will attract your target audience, you will want to contact the event organizers to see what type of marketing opportunities are available. If you believe you can receive a good return on your advertising investment, you should proceed with your plan to publicize your company at one of these outdoor events.

Leaflets and Fliers

Canvassing your local market with leaflets and fliers is another excellent promotion option when the weather is nice. If you want to take advantage of the warm weather and get some exercise, you can do the canvassing yourself or you can hire someone to do it for you. Printing leaflets and fliers that contain all of your business’s important information and distributing them in your local market is still an effective way to advertise, especially in the summer.

Again, with more people in the mood to be outside during the warm summer months, it is easier to get their attention and to hand out leaflets and fliers to consumers who are simply out enjoying the day. Taking advantage of this increased foot traffic is the secret to effectively marketing your company during the summer months.

The best marketing options for any trade are often the most creative. By thinking outside the box, you’ll be able to shine amongst your competitors. Coming up with creative ways to advertise your business during the summer will help you improve your company’s bottom line.
