Promoting Your Cannabis Business

Promoting Your Cannabis Business

The next big (soon to be legal everywhere) business venture has been conceived, Cannabusiness! New legislation has led to a boom in dispensaries of cannabis. Colorado and Washington have both recently legalized the sale of marijuana for recreational use as well with the possibility of California legalizing if Prop 64 passes. Along with California, Arizona, Nevada, Massachusetts and Maine are on route to the legalization of marijuana for recreational use.The products T&N Promotions Plus offers will be a sure fire way to give a good first impression on your branding and business  exposure and will build a relationship with you and your potential cannabis consumer!The key to growing your marijuana brand using promotional products is comprised of three parts: Getting the Right Product, to the Right People, as Inexpensively as Possible.  Get those three things right and your brand’s footprint can begin to grow organically, even after the event ends.

Promotional Cannabis Products Will Help

And we all know the best way to market a business is with promotional products! T&N Promotions Plus has a variety of promotional cannabis products that are effective in reaching out to potential cannabis consumers!

Here at T&N Promotions Plus, it is our goal to help your cannabusiness reach record high sales!

With the possibility of an additional 5 states (California being one of the largest states in the country) joining the cannabis wagon, new business opportunities will come with it as well. As the cannabis industry is growing at an extremely rapid pace, the need for marketing as a legitimate business is a very effective way to stand out from the competition. One of the simplest branding levers to pull is the strategic use of promotional products.  Promo items like hats and pens have become a staple at tradeshows and industry events, leading to the formation of a bottom-feeding class of people that only come to collect the free trinkets.  This ROI risk has led many entrepreneurs to wash their hands of promotional products entirely, like Mark Cuban’s “never buy swag” advice from his famous 12 Rules for Startups.

Promotional health shaker bottle

Health and wellness is as important as ever and when it comes to corporate promotions, drinkware is always a big hit. After all, hydration is one of the most widely recommended elements of healthy living. According to the Institute of Medicine, the adequate intake of total beverages for men is roughly 13 cups (3 liters) per dJuicer Bottle w/ Shaker Ballay, and for women about 9 cups (2.2 liters) per day. So it’s no wonder promotional drinkware is an integral component in the list of merchandise we recommend for health and wellness promotions.

The hottest new type of promotional drinkware is the shaker bottle, which not only provides the ability to hydrate, but also ties in with the popular trend of powdered supplements for pre-workout, post-workout and general meal replacement. We believe this trend adding powder to water will stay popular for many years, making shaker bottles a good investment choice for your advertising or promotional dollars.

Whether the recipient is an avid fitness lover or a newbie, either can appreciate being given a quality shaker bottle and newbies might even be motivated to workout by having a new cool bottle

What is a Shaker Bottle and What are their Key Features? 

There are many types of shaker bottles with different features and functions, but generally a shaker bottle is a non-electric cup or bottle with an internal mixing mechanism that simply works by – you guessed it, shaking. Features include, screw on lids, different types of drinking spouts, the mixing system itself, and optional measuring guides, flavor infusion, and dry powder storage.

Size also matters. Bottles range from about 12 ounces to as large as 28 ounces depending on your needs. There are also a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and functions as well, so finding the perfect bottle to fit your active lifestyle is a painless process.

How do you use the shaker bottle?

Shaker bottles are pretty easy to use: open them up pour in your liquid (typically water), use the optional measuring scale often molded into the bottle. Add your powder, screw the lid back on tight, and shake. Re-shake as necessary.

Make sure to clean your shaker bottle

We’ve heard from some of our customers about the importance of cleaning these bottles well. Most are at least top rack dishwasher safe, otherwise some soap, hot water and a kitchen brush should do the trick. Store with the lid open or at least the drinking spout to avoid odors.

Why do people drink protein shakes?

 

People drink protein shakes for various reasons, some of the most common being to build muscle and burn fat. Others drink shakes to support a healthier lifestyle and to maintain weight. Most athletes drink protein shakes after their workout sessions as nutritional supplements to give their bodies additional energy and reduce recovery time. In the fast paced world we live in, people are constantly searching for a healthy solution to a quick meal! Whether you’re on the drive to work, the gym, home, or picking the kids up from school — the convenience of a shake is becoming the ideal healthy solution, often more filling and nutritious than periodic snacking on fast food.

How do organizations use shaker bottles to promote your brand?

It’s no surprise that the implementation of wellness programs continues to rapidly grow across our nation. These programs are often at the corporate level for their employees, by government organizations, by gyms, and fitness companies. If you are in the healthcare, wellness, fitness field these bottles are a no brainer choice if you haven’t used them previously.

Here are some statistics to support your decision to promote wellness. In a report posted by The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism, companies who have successfully executed wellness programs have significant costs reductions and financial gains which include 28% reduction in sick days and 26% reduction in healthcare costs. It is important to offer programs and events to promote healthy living and healthy lifestyles such as eating properly, exercising, and getting enough sleep.

Promoting healthy living is welcomed by all and a great caring concept to attach to your brand even if your business is not directly related to wellness. Shaker bottles are also great items to giveaway at different events, conferences and trade shows. Because the shaker bottles and wellness overall, is so popular, there is a good chance the user will hold onto this product with your custom logo printed on it. Some will make it a habit.

The Best Promotional Copper Mugs For Moscow Mules

Moscow-Mule-copper-printed-mug

 

It’s been said that the mug makes the mule. If you’re mixing up Moscow mules, there’s nothing like promotional copper mugs to keep the drink ice cold – and your logo front and center.

If you haven’t noticed, the Moscow mule is the cocktail du jour. It’s a snappy blend of vodka, ginger beer, and lime, and it’s always served in a copper mug. In fact, it’s that telltale mug that makes the drink so easy to spot.

A Look Back

The story behind the Moscow mule is an interesting one. In the 1940s, two distributors – one selling ginger beer and the other selling Smirnoff vodka – found themselves in a pinch. No one was buying their products. At the time, people much preferred gin and whiskey.

So the distributors, in what turned out to be a genius move, experimented with combining the vodka and ginger beer. They added some lime, and voila – the first Moscow mule

The Role Of The Mug

The tale goes that a third partner joined in. Needing to offload a surplus of copper mugs that wouldn’t sell, the trio brought their concoction and mugs to bartenders far and wide.

The cocktail and mugs were a hit, and the rest is history. The Moscow mule is credited with reviving the vodka industry in the U.S., tripling the sales of vodka in the 1950s.

Fast forward a few decades, and the simple, sweet cocktail has once again gone mainstream – and real connoisseurs know that it has to be served in a copper mug. A Collins glass (or any other glass) just won’t do. The mug, does, in fact, make the mule. The copper keeps it perfectly chilled, making it a must for this particular drink.custom restaurant promos

Clamoring For Copper

As the drink continues to surge in popularity once again, copper mugs have become a hot commodity at bars and restaurants. People can’t get enough of the copper mugs, and they’re starting to swipe them from right under bartenders’ noses.

Retailers can’t keep up with demand. At places like Crate & Barrel and Sur La Table, copper mugs are flying off shelves, and the stores have to scramble to keep them in stock.

So, what does this mean for marketers? Now’s the time to customize copper mugs for your brand.

There’s no better drinkware of the moment than promotional copper mugs. They’re trendy, people want them, and they’re a fantastic opportunity to put your logo in the limelight.

Click here for the best printed copper mug, and check out the recipe below to concoct your own Moscow mule.

Recipe: Moscow Mule Cocktail

3 oz. ginger beer 1 ½ oz. vodka Fresh lime juice from half a lime

Fill your copper mug with ice and pour the vodka over top. Give it a good squeeze of lime juice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with lime slice or fresh mint.

FORE! The ever famous duck and cover call yelled out by golfers who just sliced right. Or maybe they hooked left. Regardless, that ball is in the bushes and you may or may not find it.

Like any promotional tool, a good strategy is key when dispersing your logo golf balls throughout your market.Logo Golf BallsCreate logo golf balls for your company with T&N Promotions Plus

Logo Golf Balls Are a Hole in One Gift

Golf balls are a popular gift around the holidays, especially for an occasion such as dad’s birthday or Father’s Day. Think about the life span of a golf ball for a moment. No golfer ever keeps their balls until their golf-game retirement. Golf balls are traded, lost, and lent out all the time and as they pass from one person to another. Many people showcase their golf ball collections in their homes or offices. Having your logo on the ball, along with a web address or contact information, can be a creative form of word of mouth advertising and marketing.

Depending on what type of business you are in, logo golf balls can act as great giveaway items and can assist in recruiting new business. If you are representing at a tradeshow or a big conference, a golf ball serves as a memorable free gift that instantly markets your brand. Custom logo golf balls also make a unique leave-behind gift. From training a new staff or giving a sales presentation, leaving behind a logo golf ball is a creative approach to branding.

Whether you are a golfer or not, a logo golf ball is a fantastic promotional tool

for companies of any size. Create your custom balls with T&N Promotions plus and get them out on that course and tee off to put your business in play.

Two Great Uses For Custom Reusable Grocery Bags

canvas tote bagCustom tote bags are promotional items that get your message a ton of mileage. They have a huge imprint space, and they get thousands of impressions – almost 9,000 for the average bag.
The bags are a great way of promoting your business.They are something that customer can get great use out of, and they look fabulous.

The biggest benefit, though, is that recipients now have a bag they can use over and over. They can use them for any number of things, and because the website is imprinted along with the logo, people know exactly where to find the shop. The bags are a useful gift for recipients and an excellent marketing tool
As society becomes more and more environmentally conscious, businesses are finding ways to align themselves with this growing trend and using custom reusable grocery bags for marketing efforts is one such popular way to do so. They can already be seen in many supermarkets, as replacements for paper and plastic bags. The latter two items had been mainstays at such businesses for many years, allowing shoppers to transport their goods home with ease.

There are many different custom reusable grocery bags available for purchase in a range of colors, styles and price points to fit any company’s budgets and needs. Most are made from non woven polypropylene, a recyclable fabric-like material that is made from fibers and many are additionally laminated or insulated to provide extra protection for perishable items. Some have special features too that include front pockets for extra storage, divided main compartments, and snap closures, and most fold down for convenient storage. When it comes to actually customizing them, screen printing is the most commonly used decoration technique. And because they provide such a large imprint area for customization, there is an opportunity for optimal advertising for purchasers with the potential to truly capture the attention of those who come in contact with users of the bags.When companies customize custom shopping totes with their name and logo or other design, they are not only creating a product to market their brand, but further, they are marketing the fact that their business is dedicated to promoting eco-friendly practices. As mentioned previously, society as a whole is trending towards more environmentally conscious attitudes, and the use of reusable items by a business can help consumers look more positively toward the organization and even help to gain more potential consumers who are particularly wary of the eco-status of the merchants with which they make transactions.
And while the totes are often used to promote grocery stores themselves, they can also be used as promotional merchandise by practically any company a part of any industry. They can be used as giveaways at trade shows, as gifts for consumers, and even as a creative way to package gifts for employees and goods for consumers. The advertising a company will receive from recipients’ future use of their bags will far outweigh the initial cost of purchasing them. After all, the term reusable is in their name – so one’s brand can continue to be advertised for years to come!
