Promote In Store Sales With Buttons

There are many different types of in store sales promotions you could run, and no matter if you are planning to promote in store discounts or want to alert customers about a holiday competition you are running - buttons will certainly help you spread the word!

Use large buttons for advertising purposes like these. You may want to consider 3", 3-1/2" or 4" buttons, to really make sure your message does not go unnoticed. 

Be More Personal With Name Badges

If you are running a traditional face to face store, you need to realize the value of the human touch. Wearing name badges is a simple way to add some personality. Customers will enjoy being helped by an approachable person who knows what they are talking about!

Add Buttons To Your Point-Of-Purchase Display

You can make more money with Point-of-Purchase displays - think bins or shelves of small items and products under $10 that you can place right by checkout. Be sure to reel in a couple of extra dollars, by offering buttons, magnets or other low dollar items where the customer is waiting in line.

These are 1-1/4" pinbacks that have been packaged in a zip lock bag with a matching header card.

Get creative with your holiday promotions by creating a scavenger hunt for your customers. Tell shoppers to go find a button that you have hidden in your store.

Have them snap a photo with their phone and show it to the cashier for a discount. It adds something fun to the shopping experience and makes the visit more memorable to the customer!

Don’t forget to boost visibility by using relevant hashtags such as #blackfriday, #SmallBizSat, or #CyberMondaySale.
