How to increase sales by using Flyering

Lucky415 creates flyering campaigns for customers all across the nation for clients all over the country (and world). We use these type of campaigns to distribute hand to hand, door to door, and also at sports games and events. These types of campaigns are typically large scale and can see a great return for the hours that are spent working for our teams and for the amount of flyers that are typically ordered.

The great thing about flyering campaigns is in business, it works! We know it works even if the return is low. You, as the business owner will always see a return. Flyers are fast to be printed and low cost to be made. The hardest part for most clients is getting the right people to distribute these flyers into the right hands, or in some cases, the right doors. That’s where we come in. We hire the correct people, for the right amount of hours, for exactly what you need. Say you are looking to flyer for an upcoming new night event and want a specific type of look? well.. We have that. We can prepare the teams, have them pick up the materials (Or have it sent to them), and have everything taken care of for you, so there is no stress in the preparations.

Flyering is a simple marketing method but so many business owners fail to utilize flyers to their full potential. When it comes to marketing for flyers, a message must be visualized by the end buyer. Depending on the print medium chosen, the message must be visualized in different ways. You must think of what will pop out first. What is going to catch their eyes first? What is going to make them keep that flyer vs. throw it away?

The key to flyering now-a-days is making sure the customers know what you are going to offer them! Make sure you offer it up and that message is right up front! Then, along with that, our ambassadors will share that message along with how they can get this special offer. These key things can grow your business even more than the average 1% return rate that most events will see.

Want to know how to make an even more successful event? Give us a call and see if we are the right team for you!

Guerrilla Marketing at Comic Con, Street teams and brand ambassadors

Comic Con 2011

Comic Con Event Staff

Are you looking for promotional reps to work your events at Comic Con, but not sure how to pick a agency or if you should book the events yourself?

One of the first things you should ask yourself is do you have the time to find, interview, screen, handle all the legal and tax paper work for each ambassador you book to work. Booking your own teams can be extremely time consuming and the paper work can be endless.  So your best bet is often to choose a reputable event staffing professional agency to find your event teams.

Now how do you choose an event-staffing agency? Well there are a few ways to go about this.

  • First, ask the agency how long they have been in business? If they’re a new agency with little to no experience, they’re probably not your best bet.
  • Do they have good reviews from brand ambassadors and online? This is important because you want to see that their clients have been pleased as well as their ability to keep their staff members happy and paid.
  • Ask how about their process for screening and booking brand ambassadors. Do they speak with each person booked? Do they take the time to do phone or skype interviews? Many agencies take on as many contracts as possible and just send out emails and who ever shows up –  shows up.
  • Find out the agency’s policy on payment to brand ambassadors. Do they pay their ambassador quickly or do they have them wait the industry standard 6-8 weeks? Many agencies take months to pay and will have the ambassadors call you, or worse your client, about payment.  However some agencies actually pay the ambassadors in 2 weeks.

If you find yourself adding promotional marketing and/or guerrilla marketing to your Comic Con event, we would love to work with you! Please contact us any time for a free quote!

Guerrilla Marketing on Black Friday. Street Teams are the New Black?

Black Friday Street TeamIt’s almost that time again! The Holidays have managed to find their way back to us again. We’re coming up on the busiest of all shopping seasons of the year. Over the last few years, we’ve all (by choice or otherwise) participated in or otherwise been exposed to BLACK FRIDAY. This phenomenon brings out drones of shoppers hoping to get the best deal. Hoping to get a half price iPad or at least something out of their 3 am shopping spree. Families save money for this day, hoping to get a majority of their Christmas shopping done in one day. The craziness doesn’t stop there. As you probably already know, some people go as far as to camp outside of their favorite store for days, hoping to be the first in line for the new pricing and technology.

As an account manager with 8 years of experience in promotional marketing, I can tell you that if there is one season to utilize guerrilla marketing, it’s this one. Everyone’s spending. They’re looking for ideas, they’re shopping for loved ones. They’re willing to meet the retailer half way. I’ve seen so many brands increase their holiday sales by using our street teams on Black Friday, I feel like I need to be standing on top of that metaphorical mountain and yelling “Street teams WORK and they’ll increase your sales exponentially right now!!!!” (This has been widely frowned upon in our office, so I’ll refrain and save my vocals for this week’s new episode of the Walking Dead.) However, last year I was approached by NPR and asked to do an interview about the Black Friday phenomena. I gladly obliged. FINALLY I get my metaphorical mountain! You can listen to my interview on NPR Marketplace here.

 

In conclusion, when you’re thinking about new ways to market your brand, new and inexpensive ways to get the word out about your product. What better way to reach people than while they’re waiting in line, sometimes for days, with a pocket full of cash, ready to spend?

Truly,

How to promote a new store grand opening. Street teams and flyer teams!

San Francisco Street teams!

Street Teams (Postcards)

showthumb-1
Grand Opening event teams and street teams are a fantastic way to promote a new store or grand opening.

Perhaps you have a restaurant or a store and you need  help promoting them. One idea is to send out street teams and guerilla marketing teams to hand out thousands of flyers or promotional coupons to drive consumers into the restaurant or store.  Free sandwich coupons or free drink coupons often work best for these kinds of events. If you a promoting a store grand opening a idea is to have street teams hit the streets and give out flyers with take $20 off today only etc..  Or flyers that invite the consumer into the store for a chance to win free items.  These types of events often work very well to get consumers to know about your store. Often times consumers love to receive anything that is free so try and incorporate a free item in the flyer. Another idea is to have a nice spin wheel at the grand opening of the store where consumers have a chance to spin the wheel and win free prizes.

Guerilla marketing and flyer teams are a fantastic way to promote your grand opening event or your promotion.

 

If you have any questions about street teams or guerilla marketing feel free to email for help and ideas  (Info@lucky415.com) We have been providing nationwide grand opening teams since 2003.

Nationwide street teams and grand opening street teams

Street teams are a great way to increase brand awareness by putting information directly into the consumer’s hand.   In most major cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, San Diego, Ny,  Dallas, Vegas, Boston, Atlanta, etc. and even in small towns consumers can easily identify street teams in action and many times they realize that a street team is associated with free promotional items. Who doesn’t love to receive something for free in this day and age?  This is one of the main reason street teams are a wonderful way to generate an instant form of brand recognition.(Instant Gratification for the consumer.)

If someone is on the way to work and they receive a free sample of a new beverage or a t-shirt by someone representing the brand with a smile and nothing more than maybe a few key words..this creates a lasting positive impression.  In addition that person might go to work holding the item and tell his co-workers that he received a free promotional item. Thus spreading the word and positive feedback.   (word of mouth)

I have had the opportunity to see street team events across the country first hand and the smiles it brings to consumers faces.   Many times consumers will flock to the street teams since they realize that often they are associated with free items. Thus a crowd draws a crowd.  It is usually best to give out free promotional items associated with the brand. Such as hats, shirts, pens, key chains, etc. Or small samples of the product. If the teams are handing out good items usually the consumers will come to them.

In the past nine years we have had street teams hand out, branded disk drives, t-shirts, hats, baseballs, plane tickets, cruise ship tickets, beverage samples, food samples, and all kinds of promotional items just to name a few.

Street teams to promote grand openings. 

 

Street teams are an awesome and inexpensive way to promote a grand opening.  Usually it is best to have the teams give out some kind of gift card or contest card to get the consumers into the store. For instance, you might want to give out small promotional items and a card for a contest. If the consumer brings the items into the store with in the next few days they can enter into a drawing for a free items etc… Another way to drive consumers into the new store is to give out gift cards that they can scan or check at the grand opening table at the entrance to the new store. (This usually works very well)

When they arrive at the store they can check to see what kind of prize they might have one.   These are great ways to have consumers become familiar with the new store and location.  You also want to do some research to find your target audience. For instance if you are trying to promote a hardware store grand opening you might want to send street teams to construction sites and offer chances to win power tools or other really nice items dealing with a hardware store.

Street team events to promote a new product

Lets say you want to drive consumers to your new website.  You can send out teams to a well-researched area to give out promotional items that have the website listed. Another example is for instance would be airlines. Airlines sometimes send out street teams to give out tons of free promotional items in a city to help let consumers know they are now flying out in and out of that city, and also a few random consumers are given free no-stings attached round trip domestic flight tickets.

Can you imagine going to work one morning and you see a street team and are given a free round trip ticket.  Think how many people you will tell about the gift.  Thus promoting the airline for years to come. Another example is beverages. The large beverage companies figured out long ago that street teams are a fantastic way to bring smiling faces and promote the beverage.  Beverage street teams usually are little tricky to operate since usually you can run out of product quickly. Consumers love free beverages.  Many times beverage street teams will show up to a certain location with ice cold beverages and give out as many as possible and then quickly move to another location.   The more creative the better. Maybe there is a line waiting for a ferry boat after work on a hot day and the beverage street teams shows up and gives a bevaege to everyone standing in line. (This is another very positive lasting impression)
