Did you know… the average pen has 7 different users?
People always need pens – and they are always losing them or passing them along. That’s why branded pens can be such a great option for marketing your real estate business.
Are you tired of handing out pens and wondering if it matters? Don’t worry, we can help. Here are three creative ways to use your branded pens to market your business.
Please note: This only works if your pens do! If you have poor pens that rarely write properly, it will reflect badly on your business. Read to the end for a special deal on branded pens from PrinterBees!
Leave it Behind
Be sure you carry your branded pens with you when you go out of your home or office. Whenever you sign something, simply leave your pen behind.
You can do this at restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, and much more. Take the time to pay by credit card inside so that you always sign a receipt. The staff at the store will be happy to have another pen to use, or the customer behind you might swipe it.
Regardless, your pens will find their way all over town without you ever actually handing it to someone. If you feel weird “forcing” your pen on people, this strategy could be perfect for you.
There are a variety of places that need pens and never seem to have enough. Why not help out? You can donate some boxes of pens to schools, libraries, and community centers. Consider dropping some at restaurants at well – wait staff are forever losing their pens to customers!
When you donate pens, you’re helping others and gaining brand exposure at the same time. As they use your pens, or as customers take them, your brand name and contact information spread throughout your community.
Plant the Idea With a Pen
You can take giving away pens to a new level by finding ways to “plant” your pen in a variety of fun places around your community.
Is there a pen cup at your local gas station or grocery? Drop a couple of yours in there. Set your pens by notepads in hotel rooms. Anywhere you see pens, leave one or two of your own in the mix!
You might not think there are a lot of opportunities, but you’d be surprised. You can also leave a pen in less common areas, like on a library shelf (or three), on a grocery store shelf, and other places that people will stumble across them.
When people see your pens “laying around”, it will help make them aware of your brand. It plants the idea that you are the preeminent professional in your area!
