Let’s start promoting!

let's get promoting

When I was preparing for my recent trip to London to go to Brit Mums Live 17 it suddenly struck me that I didn’t have any publicity material.

I started seeing my fellow bloggers showing their bright spangly business cards on their tweets. People were really prepared and I felt a bit left behind in the promotion stakes. So I thought, let’s start promoting!

I have had it in the back of my mind for a while now that I would like to start having some material or products with my logo on it. I’d love to see my brand displayed on clothes or bags, it would be so cool. When I first designed my logo I was just beginning and it seems like a long time ago.

So I got to it and thought about what I’d like. First up was some business cards. I designed these on my computer and chose the wording with the aim in my head that it was a welcome card to come see my blog.

My home made business blog cards!

Does it work? I’m not sure but I do know that the understated look works for me. I still won’t have my picture on it but it still represents me in a way that I’m happy with.

I also used Bags of Love who make beautiful personalised gifts with photos of your own designs. They have just about everything you could want to have your photo printed on from personalised suitcases to hot water bottles. Their photo gifts are very impressive.

Everything is handmade in the UK, built to last and sent out nice and quickly. If you are impatient like me then it’s great!

The bag is perfect for me, it’s very stylish and has loads of room for all kinds of shopping or work material I may have.

It’s also got little pockets on the inside for money and things I need to get to in a hurry! I spend far too long scrabbling around in the bottom of my bags for my car keys so this is a real plus for me.

So I think I’m just about set for the moment. I like the idea of having some really nice looking journal, so I think that will be my next project.

Can you think of anything else that I could use as promotional pieces?

What’s the quirkiest thing you’ve seen?

I was gifted the bag for the purpose of reviewing the service. The cards I made myself! It all came together at the right time!

  1. Hi, love the business cards, I had to get an emergency batch done last year for an event that i was attending but ordered a few too many, oops #MondayStumble

  2. I love the idea of business cards but I’m still perfecting my brand. I’m still working on redoing my blog as soon as I have a moment because I’m thinking of either changing my blog name to better suit what I write about or making a new one. I haven’t decided yet. Decisions, decisions, lol. Nice business cards and I love the idea of putting your logo on other things too:) #MondayStumble

    1. I’ve been to your blog and I love the header logo, it’s really funky:) there’s always something to do with a blog isn’t there and everything takes time. Good luck with whatever you decide, Mainy

  3. I like the bag, nice. There is probably lots of things you could use in order to promote your blog, etc. As you mention you have a logo, there are many items which you could have your logo put onto. Whatever you use most frequently is what is likely to catch the eye of others. So if you use your mobile phone a lot, then phone case with logo will act to promote your blog.
