But what if there was a way for you to hit all of your marketing benchmarks, reach your goals AND create buzz at the same time?
That’s the idea we’re going for with custom shaped inflatables. After all, where else can you get the benefit of a custom made product that nearly everyone in your target market will see?

4.Show your Support for Sports Teams
Games and sports teams are big business – according to Sports Business Daily, revenue for sport teams revolves not only around the games and merchandise, but the off-site products and services surrounding the events. And because there’s a sporting event almost every month of the year, your location could have a basketball, baseball, football, soccer ball, or even a horse racing promotion to tie in to. Watching parties, March Madness specials and Opening Day Deals are ideal ways to attract attention to your big picture marketing campaign.
Put a new twist on outdoor signage with a sign that everyone will notice. It’s not enough just to show customers that you’re open for business, you have to do something out of the ordinary to attract them to your location. Create a life-size sign that can’t be missed.
A lot goes in to an event – in this article from Small Business Trends, they go over 42 tips for a successful event. And they probably could have gone over 42!

Add a banner on the custom shaped inflatable with your event details or let the public know about your charity and why you’re raising money. Make you event the place to be.
7.Create a huge sale spectacular
With discounts and special offers taking a front seat in marketing campaigns, it just makes sense to let everyone know about yours too. Indoor P-O-P and storewide signs get the message to those already inside your location, but what about the people not yet in the front door? Take your message to the street with marketing that catches customers at street level.
Marketing campaigns can’t stay inside the confines of your location, nor can they rely on social media. There are thousands of potential customers right outside your front door. They’re driving, walking and commuting; adding something as simple as custom shaped inflatables to your marketing mix attracts their attention, right in that very minute. Like no social media update can.
