Welcome to Issue 10 of Landmarketing - Inflatable Marketing Ideas You Can Use
Spring has sprung making now the perfect time to take to the streets (or sidewalks, or fields…) for those ever-popular outdoor events. You’ve always known that inflatables really shine at outdoor events, but having some added flexibility when the weather is wonderful and people actually want to be outside makes those festivals, fairs and tradeshows all the more successful.
Why not add an interactive inflatable to your fleet this spring or summer? Bouncers are fabulous for attracting kids (and, thus, their parents). Inflatable batting cages bring in sports fans by the truckload. We’ll even gladly create your own, customized amusement ride sure to draw a crowd fast.
Need other ideas? Then you’ll want to check out our case studies for this issue. They’ll give you some phenomenal thoughts for using your current inflatables or new ones.
Also, you’ll find insights into why inflatables work so well for franchises, tips and tricks for properly caring for sealed inflatables and - in case you missed it last month - episode two of Landmarketer with guest star Trey Aiken from American Idol!
Hang on tight! This is going to be one packed issue!
When it comes to franchises, special marketing challenges arise. Two that stand out from the rest are consistency and increasing traffic. One of the most pressing is consistency. As the franchise owner, one of your responsibilities is to ensure every element of every location throughout the chain is the same. From the product to the floor plan to the advertising message being delivered to customers; consistency is key. This is precisely what makes Landmark Creations’ inflatables a perfect match for franchises.
Inflatable Case Studies:
What better way to attract the attention of football fans than with a giant football? Continental sponsored the Continental Tire Bowl that pit Virginia and West Virginia head-to-head in Charlotte, NC this past December. This inflatable was used to pump up fans and increase attendance of the game.
Vigoro knows how to do two things: grow turf and grow fan loyalty. That’s why they chose sealed inflatable replicas of fertilizer bags to help launch their sponsorship of a car in the NASCAR Busch Series at the Daytona 500.
Victory always means celebration. Nothing could be more appropriate to help National College Football Champs, Louisiana State University, celebrate than a massive, roaring inflatable tiger to show everyone who’s boss.
Sealed inflatables are exceptional promotional tools. Their small size makes them highly portable. Their ease of setup and removal gives you a quick way to draw a crowd on a moment’s notice. Sealed inflatables do, however, have a few special requirements when it comes to care. Following the instructions below will help ensure you get plenty of use from your sealed inflatables over their lifetime. read more
