Promotional Calendars

calendar_collageA great advertising tool that is cost effective and has fantastic exposure for a company is a promotional calendar. A calendar might seem simple, but it is in fact one of the best advertising techniques. Calendars stay with a customer for an entire year and exposes a company’s name and logo each time that customer writes an appointment or memo. They are practical for any customer and is seen more as a gift than a sales promotion.

Calenders come in many different styles and a company can customize their calendar to reflect their business or even promote an important cause. The great thing about promotional calendars is that once the year is up, the customer will need a replacement and will most likely ask for one for the following year. The amount of face time a calendar provides for a company is incredible and it only costs a penny a day per calendar impression, which is a great deal for what our economy is today. A promotional calendar definitely increases company awareness, rewards good customers, and stretches advertising dollars.

Cost per Impression of Promotional Products

We have just received data stating that promotional products are an excellent alternative to more expensive advertising. A survey conducted by the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) found that the average cost per impression of an advertising specialty (Promotional Item) is $0.004. Promotional items like calendars and grocery bags actually have a lower cost per impression at about $0.002. We like grocery bags with a company logo imprinted on the front side of each bag for two reasons. One, many grocery bags are reusable, eliminating the need for plastic bags every time we purchase items at the grocery store. Two, grocery bags have a large imprint area allowing the logo to be viewed by many patrons. We also like calendars because they are inexpensive (many are less than $2.00 each) and your logo is in front of potential customers 12 months out of the year. The average cost of $0.004 per impression make promotional products a worthwhile investment for marketers.
