Marketing is something every business should do. Yet this is the one thing that a lot of businesses find hard to achieve. With limited funds, businesses have to market their products or services with caution. Each dollar they spend is important so they have to ensure they generate good return on it. Often, they will rely solely on referrals and word of mouth to generate customers and sales. There’s nothing wrong with these strategies, but in order to stand out a little creativity is necessary. If they want to achieve effective and long term marketing, they need to come up with unique strategies.

For low cost but long term and impressive marketing campaign, one ideal material worth investing in is the calendar. Calendar printing is not a new concept. It is something all of uses every day. If you want maximum visibility, this is the best material that will put your brand hard at work. It will stay visible to people for a whole year and maybe even beyond. If you want a noticeable calendar, here are great tactics to consider:

- Focus on functionality. With all the marketing materials you have, the calendar will likely the most used. As such, it is crucial that you make it as functional as possible. Make sure the dates are large enough to be read from a distance. If it is too small or too blurry, no one will bother using it. The efficacy of your material will depend on your design, so make sure you think of functionality when creating the design.

- Make it noticeable. It’s likely that your competitions will create their own promotional calendars. In order to stand out, you need to create a unique and eye-popping design. Create a template that will not only reflect your brand but still give your customers and prospects a new outlook of your business. The more creative you are the more chance you have to getting noticed first. If you are not the creative type of person, ask the help of a designer. They will help you throughout the design process and even lend advices on the best way to design your material.

- Go for custom design. As much as it’s easy to use templates, it will be best if you opt for customized calendars. Make your design personal so you convey a friendly and accommodating feeling to your customers and prospects. With a custom design, your customers will feel special since you invest in personalized calendars that look like they were designed especially for them. If you can gain their trust, the rest will be easy for you.

Proper timing is important in calendar marketing. Before the end of the year, you have to ensure your calendars are ready for distribution. As early as today, you have to start creating your design so by the second half of the year you are ready for printing. Make it a point to work with the best printer in the market so you are guaranteed of high quality print job. Some print shops will claim to be the best. Don’t get easily swayed with their sweet words. Do a research so you will know the best printer suited for your need.

All year exposure is easy to achieve. Start with calendars and your long-term marketing campaign will go on smoothly and cost-effectively.
