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:

They will help you throughout the design process and even lend advices on the best way to design your material.

Make your design personal so you convey a friendly and accommodating feeling to your customers and prospects.
