Bella Bridesmaid : how to use promo lip balms

Thank goodness for Bella Bridesmaid!  

Bella Bridesmaid's fashion-forward cuts will make your bridesmaids feel stylish with a range of fabric textures and colors that flatter their figures...
    Bella Bridesmaid is a boutique whose primary goal is to carry dresses that span a broad range of fabrics, colors, price points and formality.  
   With 44 individually owned and operated franchises around the county, brides are sure to receive sincere customer service in a warm and inviting environment that helps them sort through the options to find the look that is right for their girls and their day. 

  " We use branded Promo Lip Balms to reward clients who 'check in' on Four Square or 'like' us on Facebook from their smart phones in store.  We also drop them into "swag bags" at local bridal events."

   " If one client in the bridal party checks in and receives a lip balm, they ALL want to!  The lip balm is a fun and wanted item and if one person gets it, they all want it! :)"

   "The branded lip balm tins are a more attractive promotional item to our clients than pens, bags, or a number of other more typical items."

    **What are your tips on managing orders for such a large number of franchises? 
 On my next order I will develop a form for the stores to complete with their billing and shipping addresses, contact information, quantity requested, credit card information and any timing requirements in one place. 

Bella Bridesmaid is owned & operated by mother/ daughter team,

Be a smarty-pants with seasonal marketing this year !


              We have all seen large department stores "cashing-in" on seasonal marketing but seasonal marketing can also be used by smaller businesses and on-line businesses.
  Seasonal marketing can be a thoughtful gesture that helps build relationships with your clients. Maybe part of your seasonal marketing campaign involves a useful list to help get your clients through the holidays ... or some other information they might find valuable/helpful. Read more about that here.

Plan in advance at least 15 days before your target seasonal holiday. However - add more time on if you plan to order new items which will be part of your seasonal campaign.

Stick to a simple plan - don't try to throw everything into one add campaign! Make it a  simple and clear message that is easy enough for people to remember and interesting enough that people will repeat.

Don't forget that you can encourage use of your services and encourage sales of your products by offering something for free ( like lip balm with your logo on it ) . Doing this can help make for a very focused and fun marketing campaign.

If you already give an item away to your clients consider changing it with the season to keep your client interested. For example, if you already give away lip balm - consider changing the flavours or packaging  2-4 times a year. In the fall you could offer glow-in-the-dark lip balm sticks leading up to Halloween and maybe add some halloween graphics to your label.
