Unusual marketing promotional ideas
This doesn’t mean just blogging or being active on social media – which you should be doing anyways. It literally means to be everywhere. You want to be that brand that people notice when they’re walking down the streets.Even if they don’t know what your startup does, they’ll recognize your name.
Some examples would be commissioning a mural on building and covering the streets with chalk, paint or displays. You could also make-up bumper stickers and t-shirts and give them to employees or as freebies at events. They may not be the most unusual, but a creative shirt not only lets people have the chance to be different, it will make others want to jump on board – think Zaarly shirts floating around the Bay Area. In short, don’t be invisible. Get your name out there as much as possible.
