awesome advertising ideas set business branding apart

Getting new customers is an important part of any business, regardless of the product or service offered. While retaining customers is necessary, outreach to new potential customers is just as important. 

But what are the best ways to reach new individuals without using the same tired methods? Is there anything that's low-cost that can catch a potential customer's eye at the same time?

Discover unique ways to reach out to people with these five advertising ideas.


1. Use a Hand Stamp With the Company Logo

Is your company part of an event that requires a stamp for people to get back in after leaving? Consider getting your logo and company name on a stamp, and have someone stamp folks when they come in or leave.

Since your company's name is on them for a while, they'll grow curious and look it up. It's a great way to show teamwork with other companies in the group too, as you work together. 


2. Offer Fun Swag to Keep the Brand in Their Mind

If there's one thing most people willingly take, it's free items. Swag is popular with folks of all ages, even if they never intend to use it. 

Swag can be anything you want. This includes:

  • Pens
  • Magnets
  • Lanyards
  • Travel mugs

Consider getting swag made that is versatile among various age groups, such as a pen or magnet. Folks then have the company name in plain sight, making it easier to stay in their mind when they need your services. 


3. Go for a Retro Look for Interesting Advertising Ideas

Everyone gets nostalgic for the last decade or two. Take potential customers back to a simpler time, with advertising that is reminiscent of the 80s or 90s. 

Use colors from these time periods, create a commercial or even a social media post that invokes this time period through dress, speech, or color scheme. It's sure to turn a few heads and generate interest in what you have to offer.


4. Give Them a Business Card They Won't Forget

Rather than a plain old business card that's going to get thrown out or thrust into a drawer, look for different ways to advertise your company. 

Get business cards cut out in unique shapes, such as a fishbowl for a pet store or the shape of a pizza for a restaurant. The possibilities are endless once you sit down and think creatively. 

Prefer less waste and a way to advertise that gets you in front of thousands of people? Vehicle wraps offer a popular alternative for any business. You can find out more here. 


5. Harness the Power of Live Social Media

Social media is popular with new companies that don't have a lot of money to spend, but still want to get their name out there. Build a following on platforms such as a Facebook business page and through Twitter.

You can then go live and talk about your service or product, and even demonstrate it in action. It's possible for potential customers to interact with you when you're live, making this an easy and accessible form of communication and sales.
