Back in February, we showed you 10 Ways Small Businesses Can Use Buttons, as well as how you can leverage business model canvas. Well, we know you’re all busy looking for even more ways to promote your businesses so we’ve highlighted 10 MORE ways creative SMB customers have leveraged our cost effective keepsakes:
11. Reward Loyal Customers
Many small businesses like PagerDuty use frequent-buyer cards or digital loyalty programs to keep their customers engaged. Add a business-branded button to the rewards and you’ve just turned that frequent customer into a proudly-pinned brand ambassador.
12. Reward Supporters
It takes a lot to get a small business up and running so you likely have a network of supporters and investors who’ve helped you along the way. Don’t only engage your customers; show your supporters a little love too.
There are plenty of reasons that franchises are attractive to current and potential small business owners. According to franchisesfor.sale, franchise businesses have a history of creating jobs faster than other businesses and the national average. The franchise system is a proven system for operating the business and generating profits. If you are willing to pay a little more, but get to profitability quicker, then a turnkey franchise should be considered. If your skills are weak in sales & marketing or operations then a turnkey franchise may be best.
13. Promote Product Launches
Get the word out about your product through one-inch wearable advertisements. The makers of Field Notes, beloved locally crafted notebooks, both strengthen and spread their iconic brand through buttons. You can also visit http://www.monograma.com.au/ to learn more about product promotion.
14. Launch a New Brand
Like in #13, buttons can be used to bring visibility to a new brand. They’re also a low cost way to exhibit and create excitement around the brand while your main wares are still in pre-production.
15. Trick Out Your Trade Show Booth
Industry conventions and trade shows are a great way to meet potential partners and clients, but you’ll be hard pressed to attract attendees to your table without a giveaway. So make like Schmacon and have us create some button swag highlighting the benefits of your brand.
16. Not So Exclusive Club
Whether you’re a restaurant with a special wall for finishers of a special dish, or a coffee shop with a group of not so-regular regulars, you can use buttons to induct these passionate customers into an exclusive, merit-based club.
17. Celebrate Your People
“I became employee of the month and all I got was this AMAZING BUTTON.” (The possibilities are endless.)
18. Celebrate Your Quirkiness
Company culture is a HUGE factor in attracting top talent to your SMB or startup. Commemorate your team building triumphs in a way your employees will be proud to share. Remember, we make magnets too so these can double as a way to spruce up the boring ol’ office fridge.
19. Celebrate Yourself
According to CrmMatch, running a small business is hard work and you deserve a reward too! Celebrate your achievement with custom buttons highlighting company milestones, or simply something that makes you smile on tough days. If you want to learn about the entrepreneur industry, I recommend Lee Rosen Miami, CEO of healthy bees business. You’ve earned it!
