Big, Bold, Creative Promotion For Your Local Business

Aug 17, 2007
If you are a business owner, you understand better than anyone that the world has become a very "noisy' place. It's tough to get noticed in today's busy, overcrowded world-but that doesn't mean that it's impossible. Instead of spending your marketing dollars on mailers, flyers, and door hangers that get tossed in the trash, try generating publicity by hosting a community event with inflatable rentals.

Why inflatable rentals? In order to really get noticed, you've got to do something out of the ordinary. You've got to surprise people when they weren't expecting to be surprised. Inflatable rentals are just that-big, fun, colorful, and worthy of grabbing attention. They're also inexpensive to rent, quick to set up, and promote festivity. Imagine your typical afternoon drive home from the office. You could probably drive the route while in a partial coma. For the most part, the scenery and the events outside the window are the same day in and day out.

Now imagine one of the public places you drive past filled with big, bright, inflatable obstacle courses, a ring where people are wrestling in inflatable sumo suits, and lots of other big inflatable outdoor games. Chances are you'll lend this event more than just a quick glance. When planning your event, it is critical to ask the inflatable rentals company about the dimensions of the equipment and have large "hosted by" signs made to attach to the tops of the inflatable rentals to promote your brand or business.

Tailor the event for your target audience
The goal of hosting a big community event with inflatable rentals is to be seen and embraced by the general community, but you'll want to "speak" to your target audience as well. For example, if your local business is a children's hair cutting salon, you'll want to spin your promotional materials as being a fun event for kids. Inflatable rentals aren't just for kids though; there are countless ways to bill a community event centered around inflatable rentals for adults as well.

If your local business is a restaurant and pub with an after work happy hour, sell the festivity as a way for professionals to unwind after work and have a brew on the house while racing their coworkers on an inflatable obstacle course. If your local business is a auto repair shop, bill the event as a place people can come to have fun while enjoying a price oil change.

Spreading the word
Though you'll want to gear the promotion toward your target audience, it should be apparent in the advertising that everyone in the community is welcome and that no admission is required. The goal here is to get your name in front of as many people as possible so that people remember your name and associate it with a positive experience.

One of the most effective ways to get the word out about your upcoming event is through press releases distributed to your local television station, radio station, and newspaper. The more unique your event, the more likely these high profile sources will be to run your piece.

Publicity is Priceless
When you go big with your event, big media outlets like newspapers and local television stations take notice. Imagine how much visibility your business could enjoy with just one short segment on a local news program or a feature article in the town newspaper. Paying for ad space in either would cost far more than the cost of a well planned event.

Beyond that, a spot on television, radio, or placement in a newspaper often sparks interest in other people who will want to talk about and publicize the event. Start by having big aspirations. Then think big about your promotional tactics. Soon you'll begin to see how your thoughts manifest into big advancements for your business.
