7 Questions to Ask Yourself To Improve Your Green Marketing Sales Next Year Year

December 2nd, 2015 No comments

Is It Time To Re-Visit Your Green Marketing Plans for 2016?

Green Marketing Goals

Austin, Texas: As the year quickly comes to an end, it is a great time to  review your green marketing goals .and to see how close you were to your objectives.

Too often we just roll from one year to the next without taking the time to see what we had done correctly and what needs improving.

I like to go to a Starbucks or other location and bring an old school bound journal and sit, think and review for about an hour or so…and just think and write.

I like to think about my vision and write down some key thoughts and ideas.  Then I break them down to see the best ways to reach each of those goals.

Here are 7 questions to ask yourself to plan for a successful new year of green marketing:

1) What was your top green marketing goal last year? Did you meet it?  Did you even have one?

2) What can you do to improve your outreach for next year?  How will you go about achieving that goal?

3) What is your top priority for next year in terms of sales? What steps are needed to reach that goal?

4) What was your biggest disappointment of this year? Why? What could you have done differently?

5) If money wasn’t an object, what would you change about your business? How would that change things?

6)If the economy slows down next year, how will you adjust your marketing strategies?  What can you do to pre-empt a downturn from affecting you?

7) How many podcasts and/or speeches have you given on the benefits of going green?  If green is your mission, then outreach is crucial in both spreading the gospel and in promoting your brand. How can you do a better job in communicating the importance of going green or about the dangers of climate change?

You can come up with others.

Just think about your green marketing vision, plans, goals — and start writing.  

No erasers.

One thought per page.

And just keep writing until you cannot think any longer.

It is a fun and very useful activity and it should work well for you.

Let me know how you do next year.  I’d love to know if you’ve reached or exceeded your goals.

Happy New year and Happy Promoting!

Be Sure to Add Social Media Links to Your Promotional Products

September 5th, 2014 No comments

Printing and Promoting Your Social Media Links on All of Your Promotional Products Will Drive More Traffic

Branding Your Promotional Products With Your Social Media Links

Austin, Texas: One of the most common concerns for my clients is how they can attract more followers to their social media sites.

Are you in that same boat–not getting enough people to visit and interact on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and other sites

Take a moment and evaluate all of your advertising , marketing and promotions.  Do they all cross-promote your social media accounts?

I suggest using your social media accounts consistently in all media: print ads, email signature lines, business cards and even on your promotional products.

I tend to question every promotional product order that we get that does not include a link to at least one social media site.

Even the NBA is including their Twitter handle (@NBA) on all game balls–because it gets noticed and drives traffic.

Start putting your Twitter handle on your promotional products and all other forms of marketing.

And be consistent in promoting them.

Cross promote your social media sites with promotional products and other forms of marketing.  

Don’t view social media as a stand alone marketing venue.

If you do not promote those sites, how do you expect to draw attention to them?

Keep your social media links front and center in all communications and watch your traffic increase.

Happy Promoting!

What Makes a Promotional Product Eco-Friendly?

August 14th, 2014 No comments

eco-friendly promotional productsHow to Determine if a Promotional Product is Eco-Friendly or Not

Austin, Texas: One of the main questions we hear is : “How do we determine if an item is considered an eco-friendly promotional product or not?”

We sell over 25,000 different eco-friendly promotional products at EcoMarketingSolutions.com and we like to break down our parameters into the 3 R’s.

Start with the 3R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

A) REDUCE: Does the use of the promotional product reduce waste.

For example most of us would consider a reusable water bottle as an eco-friendly promotional product because it reduces the number of paper cups or plastic empty water bottles in the waste stream.  Same holds true for a reusable tote bag –as it reduces the number of plastic or paper bags that end up in landfill.

Another popular item–recycled USB drives can also help reduce paper waste.

B) REUSE: Can the promotional item be reused — over and over again?

In addition to reusable water bottles and tote bags–think even of cell phone power chargers that can be used again and again – or even higher-quality organic clothing that can be worn for years.

C) RECYCLE: Is the promotional product made of recycled materials?

I like to start with post-consumer recycled and a minimum of 50% recycled materials–but everyone has their own guidelines.

Look for recycled promotional products–which are especially prevalent in plastic products–everything from flying discs to tumblers and bottles to recycled pens and more.

Don’t over-think your eco-friendly promotional products selection.

If you can find an item that meets at least one of these 3 criteria, then you’ve found an eco-friendly promotional product.

If you can combine two or more of the Big 3R’s in one promotional product–even better.

Yes– to define your eco-friendly promotional product, you can then go into smaller groups–such as hemp or organic-only fabrics,or energy-reducing or efficient products and even solar powered promotional items–but that is much more specific and case by case.

Promote your green marketing campaign and create greater awareness of green causes with eco-friendly promotional products.

Anything less would not be doing justice to your campaign or mission.

Here’s to a greener tomorrow, today.

Green Marketing: Forget About the Masses. Find the Influencers

July 29th, 2014 No comments

Is Your Green Marketing Campaign Trying to Be Too Broad?

green-marketing

Austin, Texas: When it comes to green marketing, sometimes trying to be all things to all people serves your target audience wrong.

Your target audience is not EVERYONE.

It is a nice goal–but 100% unrealistic.

What audience can you have the most impact trying to woo or persuade?

That is where you should spend the bulk of your green marketing efforts.  Then as that reach expands through your efforts and grass roots marketing, you can try to broaden that audience.

For cities and utilities looking to reduce energy or water usage, find the influencers–and work backwards.

Those influencers can be teachers and ministers.

It can be manufacturers and local club or civic leaders.

Reach out to them to help you spread your message.

If you are a business providing a green product or service, then who are your influencers?

Mothers of young children or babies?

Dual income adults with no kids?

Know who your specific target audience is and work backwards.

As a business to business provider of eco-friendly promotional items, I get calls all the time from organizations asking me to advertise in magazines or go to trade shows that do not fit my target audience.  Sure, it would  be nice to go to consumer trade shows and talk to moms and kids about the environment.  But that just is not my target audience and my advertising and marketing budget would soon be wasted and used up.

I prefer business to business marketing forums where I can speak to my potential clients — then I try to pare it down more specifically.

You should do the same.

Not all marketing events are for you — no matter how good it feels.

Learn who your target audience is and then find those influencers that you can specifically target to maximize your campaign’s efficiency and improve your return on investment.

Happy Green Marketing!

Should Green Marketing Companies Have a Higher Bar to Pass for Credibility?

June 5th, 2014 No comments

Raising the Bar for Green Marketing Claims

green marketers

 

 

Austin, Texas: As green marketers, we make lots of claims:

  • Organic
  • Environmentally-Friendly
  • Recyclable
  • Made from Recycled Materials

However, too many of these claims are unsubstantiated or vague, at best — and not up to the Green Guides standards.

I think that when making claims about product safety, health, and yes–environmental stewardship, we should always err on the side of full disclosure.

At Eco Marketing Solutions, we sell green promotional products: imprinted items that are made of recycled materials or from organic materials.

With over 400,000 products in our line, we have a team of people dedicated to updating every item in our online catalog for accuracy and disclosure.

We are not there yet, but we are working on it every single day.

It is a time-consuming (and expensive) task, but when finished, our customers will know if a product is made form post-consumer waste, what percentage of the product is made from recycled materials, etc.

Are you spending your time clarifying green facts and figures – or are you intentionally keeping things blurry?

Customers appreciate honesty–even if it is not entirely what they were hoping for.

There is too much pseudo information out there –which only make sour jobs as green marketers harder.

Casting a shadow of doubt on your product only makes your company seem less than honest.

Green marketers should be held accountable to a higher standard–as we are all in this together.

Here’s to a greener tomorrow, today!

Green Marketing 101: Ask for an Action Step

May 27th, 2014 No comments

What Steps Are You Asking Your Customers to Take When Doing Green Marketing?

green marketing should encourage taking one step instead of a whle list

Austin, Texas: When promoting your business or organization, are you asking your customers to take an action step or are you just doing random green marketing?

If you are simply handing out promotional products without an action step, then you are just contributing to the global waste stream.

Whether they are recycled promotional products or even organic promotional products, without encouraging an action step is a wasted opportunity to promote your green agenda.

All of your green marketing and outreach materials should be encouraging your customers to take ONE actionable step that can help reduce their carbon footprint.

Ask for just one green action step.

Offering too many choices will only confuse your customers or discourage them from moving forward now.

Don’t offer a To-Do list.

Just one action step at a time.

Try it on your next promotional product giveaway.

What one action step will you be telling your customers to take right away?

Happy Green Marketing!

Green Marketing 101: Tell Your Origin Story?

May 12th, 2014 No comments

Are You Telling Your Story of Your Company’s Creation?

promoting your green company

Austin, Texas: Most green companies have an interesting story to tell.

They were created to solve an environmental  problem–such as to reduce waste, to cut carbon emissions, to encourage environmental education, to educate on the need for more recycling, etc.

But are you telling your story often enough?

Here is an excellent short article on the power of creating and promoting your organization’s origin story.

What sets your organization apart is the story of how you got started.

Tell us why you got started.

Describe conditions before you got started and afterwards.

Explain to us the need that you saw in the marketplace for a greener alternative

People buy from organization’s that have a unique story to tell.
What’s your original story?

Post-Earth Day Marketing Allows You To Avoid Over-Saturation

April 29th, 2014 No comments

Post-Earth Day Marketing Can You You More Impact for Your Promotional Dollar

earth day marketing ideasAustin, Texas: I had a client call me last week to say that he is so happy that Earth Day has ended so he does not have to worry about his marketing plans until next year.

What a mistake!

I advise my clients to spend a large portion of their marketing budget centered around Earth Day and Spring events–but to hold back at least 30% for the rest of the year.

Environmental messages after Earth Day can cost you much less money –while also helping you to stay top of mind all year long.

Think of Earth Day marketing as your launching pad–but consider the rest of the year as your opportunity to keep your branding and messaging out in front of your clients and prospects.

The field is much less crowded after Earth Day–so your messaging can have more impact–like Christmas in July for retailers.

Be creative.

Tie in to local or newsworthy events.

Keep spreading your environmental message

Combating climate change should not be a one day event for your company.

People see right through it.

Earth Day marketing should be a year-round campaign for your organization.

What environmental message will you be promoting next month?  And the month after that?

Let’s help people to reduce their carbon footprint 12 months a year.

Earth Day Should Be Promoted Every Day!

Happy Marketing!

Going Green: It’s a Year-Long Commitment..Every Year

December 4th, 2013 No comments

Going Green: It’s More Than Just a Slogan!

going-green-is-more-than-just -a-sloganAustin, Texas: As this year winds down it is time to review our year and look introspectively at our results.

This gives us a chance to see what we have been doing correctly, what needs to be improved and what needs to be replaced.

Our job is to help companies that are “Going Green” to better promote their objective and plans to their targeted audience.

I am constantly asking our team if we are helping our customers “go green enough”?

If our clients think about promoting their recycling programs or green services at Earth Day alone–they are not maximizing their branding opportunity.

Going Green is helping our client’s clients to think green more often than they are currently doing.

Going green is helping people to think about their environmental choices on a more frequent basis.

If they only “think green” on Earth Day–what a wasted opportunity!

What can we do to help people think of going green on a more regular basis?

Is it more educational discussions, webinars, town halls, etc.?

Is it more green contests on social media sites?

Is it more programs co-marketed with other like-minded green organizations that will help multiply the efforts?

Is it a series of green reminders that are sent by email weekly or are pasted onto recycling bins?

Let us know what has been helping to build environmental awareness in your company and in your community so we can share these ideas with the public.

We welcome these ideas so that we can leave a greener planet behind.

Here’s to a greener tomorrow, today.

How Is Customer Perception Affecting Reality When It Comes to Your Green Positioning?

November 6th, 2013 No comments

Are You Practicing What You Preach In Your Green Marketing Campaigns?

strategies to improve your green perceptionby Robert Piller

Austin, Texas. I ordered a recycled beanie cap the other day from a retailer who is well-known for being environmentally-friendly – and was surprised at the size of the box it came in.  It could have held a microwave oven when a small padded envelope would have worked just as well.

Perception is reality … and even more so for green companies.

Everyone is out for a “GOTCHA”” moment – so companies that call themselves stewards of the environment or those that practice corporate social responsibility should be on guard at all times…and practice a higher standard.

The way a company acts creates a perception in the customer’s mind.

Here are some simple green marketing strategies to keep your actions more closely aligned with your mission.

If you are shipping products–use the smallest box or packaging possible that will ensure safe delivery.

We like to use “used boxes” –packing products in other shipping boxes that we have received.

We keep all usable boxes in our shipping department and use these for many products.

Reuse beats recycling all day long.

Place a small sticker on the box telling your customers that you are Reusing the Box to Help reduce Your Carbon Footprint – and encourage the to so the same thing with the box.

Same holds true for your corporate handouts – are they printed on FSC certified paper or recycled stock?

Your promotional materials– are they all made from recycled or organic materials?

Your trade show uniforms or clothing – are they made from recycled or sustainable materials?

Your booth materials–same question?

Saying you are environmentally-friendly and actually being green should be one and the same.

Customers perceive you for how you act and appear to them – not what you say about yourself.

Review your green marketing strategies – and start planning to make it greener for 2014.

Here’s to a greener tomorrow, today.
