In order to have a successful promotion, you will need to be sure to advertise it in a variety of methods for an appropriate amount of time. Our clients have advertised their promotions through direct mail pieces, radio ads, on your social media, with posters, table tents, newspaper ads, or radio ads. Through our experience, we have founding using at least 3 forms of the methods listed below were most successful, any less than 3, your giveaway may not get the necessary amount of attention.
After choosing what methods of advertising you want to do, the next step is to figure out the length of your promotion. We recommend no less than 3 weeks, but don’t hesitate to advertise this event for 6-10 weeks. The longer your promotion, the more engagement, and the larger the prizes can be!
