Exposure hey put some pants on, and get outside to hand out some shirts stickers or whatever for free.
Yah you heard me right, put some pants on and get out there already. Nothing like the smell of fresh merchandise in the morning, I love it and so to should you. You should go back and re-read that, its a nice turn of phrase meant to make it stick in your head like Ice Ice Baby, or It’s a Small World. Or even better Lamb chops Song that never ends.
OK stop singing.. no really STOP already. OK so now back to the topic at hand. Putting on some pants and getting out there to hand out some merchandise to the masses. Shirts, Stickers perhaps even a pair of pants if you would like. This helps you in several different ways. First you get to go outside which from the looks of it you really need to do more often. Second you will get more exposure from handing out your goodies. Third its fun! Come on its fun to walk around talking to people you don’t know. Its easy enough to do when you have free stuff to give them since that’s an ice breaker all on its own. Yes that’s right its FUN. Its a simple and easy way of practicing your networking skills and advertising as well.
So get that Star Trek backpack out load it up with all the goodies you have and increase you fan base quicker then Tribbles in a cafeteria. Make a route of it, stop for some coffee perhaps talk to the barrista and give them a shirt too (not your star trek shirt) . Hand out cards with it so they can go to your fan pages and help increase word of mouth for you.
