Pencil in a Visit Promotion| live laugh linky #109

Welcome to live laugh linky #109
I’m partying with all of you from Salt Lake City!
I’m actually writing this on my flight.
Up at 3:30 a.m. so if there are typos – forgive me!
I may or may not be a little addicted to my job.

Today I thought I would share something a little different.  I don’t have features for you (boo, I know).  Sorry about that!  However,  I do have a fun little advertising/promotional idea to share with you.  Pencil in a visit, will ya?

DIY Clever Marketing Idea for Blogs or Small Businesses copy

Sometimes I think I’ve worked every job there is — seriously, no joke!  Let’s see, I’ve worked as a waitress, housekeeper, fast food employee, administrative assistant, newspaper delivery girl, computer lab monitor, janitorial crew, children’s pastor, summer camp assistant director, substitute teacher,  college recruiter, front desk at a hotel, drug store employee, church secretary, Director of Admissions for both graduate and undergraduate schools, Fine Arts Festival Coordinator for the Assemblies of God, Activity Director at an assisted living facility and the list goes on!  HA!

One of the jobs I absolutely loved was being a Sales Representative for a promotional company.  Promoter Advertising.  I loved selling promotional products, pitching ideas and creating outside-the-box marketing materials for my clients.  I remember one of the pieces I created was “Pencil us in for all of your promotional product needs” and getting the bosses approval to have pencils printed with the businesses logo.  It was catchy and something that would make the piece a little more memorable.  So memorable that I thought I would put something similar together for my blog — and use them at Snap!  Why not, right?

Some might think it cheesy, but others might think it’s fun and a little outside the box.  I’m willing to take the chance of making a memorable impression.

I created the printable (four to a sheet), had pencils printed through Oriental Trading and attached them with glue dots and bakers twine. Below you can see where I punched my holes and placed my glue dots.  Voila!

    Thanks for hosting! I’ve shared my cooked mayonnaise recipe that easy and free of most allergens. I also shared my hummus bites which are great vegan and allergy-friendly appetizers.

    Love this idea & think it’d be perfect for my blog promo. I’m wondering what type of hole puncher you used, that’s not the standard kind :) Thanks
