How Essential Oils Can Work With Your Marketing Plan

Essential oils are increasing in popularity for home and personal use, so it's just natural that trend should work it's way into the marketing world.  Essential oils are derive their scent/aroma from plants by distilling various parts including seeds, roots, bark, stems, leaves, fruit, flowers or branches.  The Zen Collection we carry offers Therapeutic Grade oils which are highly concentrated.  The aromatherapy of essential oils engages our sense of smell and directly affects our mood.  It can also have an immediate physical impact such as helping you breathe easier and affect the way we function and interact with our environment.
Essential oils work well in an office environment as the scents are not overpowering and our small diffuser it perfect for an office or cubicle.  If employees are sluggish, tired or can't concentrate diffusing Focus (a minty pine powerhouse) can help give them the jolt they need to focus and concentrate better.

Hit Your Pomotions Out of the Ballpark

Whether you are trying to promote a college baseball team or little league, designing a marketing promotion with a baseball theme (I'm thinking slogans like "We hit it out of the park", "Our service is a home run", "You are safe with us") or putting together a company sponsored outing to a game, we have an abundance of baseball themed swag to help you out.

And what's a baseball game without snacks?  I mean, honestly, it's the only reason I can sit through a game.  These fun boxes are filled with caramel corn and printed with a baseball theme to get you through the 7th Inning Stretch.  Fun for trade show handouts, in store promotions or for company game outings.

All the classic baseball snacks packaged together make a memorable gift for season ticket holders, sponsors or for each employee going to the game.  Filled with Cracker Jacks, Baseball Peanuts and Big League Chew.

Taking a Full Court Advantage with Basketball Promotions

Sports promotions at basketball games span all levels of play- from High School through College and into the NBA.  While we all want the perfect promotional item, planning ahead (and more than one set of eyes on the proof) can help prevent mistakes like what happened with the Atlanta Hawks T shirt promotion (read about it here).  These are the kinds of mistakes that give us in this industry nightmares.  While we can't guarantee we won't ever make a mistake, we do proof every order here at Barefoot Promotions Your Swag Connection (except extreme rush orders) in an attempt to help prevent any mistakes.
Check out some of our favorite basketball related swag for fan appreciation, to promote ticket sales, MVP Ticket holder gifts, in stands giveaways or just general marketing with a basketball theme.  Keep in mind that if your items are going to children under the age of 12 they need to be CPSIA Compliant (ask us for more information).
custom small vinyl basketball CPSIA compliant swag     Basketball shaped fan swag   Basketball shape chocolate candy giveaway swag    basketball clapper noisemaker swag
Vinyl or plastic basketballs, hand fans (with schedule or sponsor logo on the back), snack packs of chocolate basketballs or clapper noisemakers work well for High School fundraisers or for fan appreciation items at College games.  Basketball beach balls, foam stress balls, and schedule magnets are additional cost effective marketing ideas.
custom jersey rally towel   Basketball drawstring backpack fan swag   roller banner sports fan basketball    basketball hoop office game
Rally towels shaped like jerseys are a fun altorernative to traditional rally towels, while drawstring backpacks make great on-seat giveaways and roller banners encourage fans to interact- add a second side imprint to double the exposure or add a sponsor.  And what door can't use a mini basketball hoop for an inpromptu game of indoor hoops.

basketball desk office game sponsor gift    basketball bamboo cutting board gift   basketball glasses gift set ticket holder gift
We also have many items for those higher end gifts for sponsors, athletic boosters, alumni, season ticket holder and more such as a fun desk basketball game (more challenging that it looks), a basketball bamboo cutting board or a set of glasses with a frosted basketball impression inside the base.
