I think one way to promote a website or online business that people tend to overlook a lot is promoting in person! Not just online! I meet people almost daily and I want them all to visit my sites. Thing is, if I don’t give them something to remember me by then they will never be a new reader or customer.
Sure, business cards work…but they also get misplaced. I was going through my purse the other day. Most of the business cards were all dog chewed looking from sinking to the bottom of my purse. But there were a few things that were in there that prompted me to write this post.
Somethings that I kept and will even use on a daily basis, custom promotional pens and even a personalized pencil. These are things I will definitely handle more than once. A constant reminder of the business it represents. Each time I handle the promotional pen or pencil I am getting that name embedded in my brain. I will remember them.
Think about it…how often do you handle a business cards more than two times?
I’m definitely thinking about getting some awesome laser engraved pens to promote all of my online sites. Every time someone uses it they will be reminded of that awesome chick they met at the park, grocery store, etc….
