The start of the school year signals the impending end of summer, and that fall will soon be here. Everyone will be excited about spending more time outside once the weather cools off a bit, and it’s a great time for outdoor events and activities. Below are just a few ideas to get you started.
Fall is a great time to hold a fundraiser for your local schools. Outdoor fairs and carnivals are always popular with the children and their families, and it’s a great way to raise money for your school. For the school itself, branding items with the school’s name and selling them at a table to earn money for the school, or even different clubs is a great idea. With all the folks that will be present at the event, you are sure to earn a fair amount of money to help fund your club.
Non-school branded items to giveaway during the event is a great idea too. You can easily offer to help your school by providing items imprinted with your logo to help sponsor the event. You could provide cups to help them serve drinks in, and offer free gifts the school could use in raffles or as prizes. Keytags, sunglasses, and sunscreen are just a few ideas that would make wonderful giveaway items for games and raffles.
Fall Themed Contests
A great way to boost brand reputation is by creating a contest for current and/or potential customers. You can offer a big prize (cash, your services, products, etc.) as well as smaller prizes. Consider tote bags, umbrellas, and drinkware as they make great gifts that will get a lot of repeat exposure.
Sponsor a Chili Cookoff
With the cooler air, fall is a great time to hold an outdoor event, and what’s better than a chili cookoff! You can provide the venue and let people from all around enter the contest to see who can make the best chili! You can provide branded items that participants can use during the event, as well as prizes for the winners and runner-ups, as well as hold smaller guest contests to win other branded items.
Halloween Parties and Events
Of course, we can’t forget Halloween! October is a wonderful month for promotions, and Halloween is a fun time that people of all ages can enjoy. There are so many things you can do for Halloween and it’s a great way to attract the attention of people of all ages. Below are just a few ideas for creating Halloween fun!
