Want To Get Your New Business Off The Ground? 2 Innovative Advertising Tips

Posted on: 9 May 2017

If you have a new business you must advertise to get it off the ground. There are many ways to do this, such as putting an ad in the local paper, handing out fliers, and creating a website. There are other innovative ways that will help you stand out from the crowd, two of which are listed below.

Promotional Rulers

Instead of handing out business cards, hand out promotional rulers that have your business's logo on them, as well as your phone number and website address. Many people can use a ruler for their job and may not even realize it. If this is something they will use often, they will see your advertisement often.

Offer to give promotional rulers to local schools and colleges. The teens and children use these and if they take them home their parents will see your advertisement.

You can hire an online company to design and create your rulers for you. You can choose the font you like, as well as the color of the font. Your company's logo can also be put on the ruler.

There are also rulers that have a small hole on one end with a type of ribbon threaded in the hole so the ruler can be used as a bookmark. They are generally made of wood or enamel, so the rulers are durable. Contact a company today to learn what they can do for you.


Instead of hanging a sign outside your business purchase an inflatable advertisement. This should be tall so it is noticeable by passing drivers. If it is windy, the inflatable will sway back and forth.

If there is a local event, such as a baseball or football game, take inflatable balloons to hand out. These balloons are made of nylon that is covered with silicone so they are durable. Choose bright balloons and put your logo in white so it stands out. Kids especially love to get balloons. This is not a permanent option but a lot of people holding a balloon flying in the air will allow everyone around them to see your advertisement.

You can also use balloons for advertising your business on location. You can rent large inflatable balloons to hang somewhere outside your business, such as near a door or tied to a sign. These balloons will last a long time for you. A giant, colorful, and inflatable balloon will be noticed by people walking and driving by your business.

These are fun ways you can advertisement your business so you can get more customers walking through your door.
