With all the challenges ahead 2023 has began.
Everyone is hopeful to make significant progress this year despite the economic challenges.
But most businesses are careful with the spending. They need new customers, more sales but hold back from spending on marketing and customer acquisition.
The traditional promotional methods like newspaper ads, TV ads, or billboards cost more. Even modern methods like social media and online promotional methods ask for significant time and financial investment.
However, promotional custom stickers are an almost forgotten or neglected promotional method that most businesses can use in 2023 to get more customers and put their name out there.
Why Custom Stickers
Low-cost promotional method
One of the main benefits of custom stickers is the cost factor. You don’t need a humongous marketing budget to start a promotional campaign using stickers.
It is done right, using promotional stickers is the most cost-effective marketing method compared to all the other methods available.
They say social media marketing is the kind of showing your message to a large number of potential customers.
Yes, but if you use simple bumper stickers you can get similar or greater exposure, of course at a fraction of the cost of social media marketing.
Think of custom stickers as a walking/ traveling mini-billboard without all the cost of a billboard.
Easy to Implement
You don’t have to hire a team, new vehicles, or a gigantic budget to use custom promotional stickers.
All you need is to figure out your message, a decent design, a reasonable budget, and a quality sticker printer.
If you use stickers for your promotional campaign you don’t have to endure a recurring maintenance cost.
When you hire a billboard or even hire a social media maintenance person you have to pay for ongoing maintenance or service costs.
How cool is that?
You put it once and these custom stickers will keep sending you new customers and sales.
That’s why we say promotional stickers are one of the underutilized marketing mediums for small businesses.
Types of Custom Stickers
Vinyl stickers are the most common sticker type used in a wide variety of applications. They are mainly made using PVC resins and plasticizers. So vinyl stickers are very resistant to water, sun, and general wear and tear.
If you are looking for stickers for outdoor applications, vinyl stickers should be your choice.
If you are looking for a way to add an excellent and exceptional finish quality to packaged boxes and other products paper stickers or paper labels are your choice.
