Understanding Banners as Marketing Tools

Banners have long been recognized as an impactful way to capture attention and promote businesses. At Community Proud, various types of banners are utilized, most notably, our vinyl banners. Our vinyl banners all have a variety of options that allow for customization and versatility, catering to the specific needs of each client. The benefits of using banners for offline marketing are numerous. They offer high visibility and impact, ensuring that your message stands out in the crowd. Additionally, banners allow for targeted audience reach, helping you connect with your desired customer base.

Stickers can be strategically placed in various locations, ensuring that your brand is visible to potential customers wherever they go. By utilizing stickers, you tap into the potential for word-of-mouth marketing as satisfied customers become brand ambassadors.

The key to maximizing the impact of banners and stickers lies in their design. At Community Proud, the design process is a collaborative effort, ensuring that the final product aligns with each client’s marketing goals. By working closely with Community Proud’s team of experts, businesses can create customized designs that resonate with their target audience. When designing banners, it’s crucial to focus on clear and concise messaging, eye-catching visuals, and effective placement of logos and contact information. Similarly, for sticker design, captivating graphics, attention-grabbing colors, and clear, legible text play a vital role in capturing attention and leaving a lasting impression.


We Will Help You With Strategically Placing Your Banners and Stickers!

Community Proud understands the importance of strategic placement when it comes to banners and stickers. By identifying optimal locations, businesses can maximize their reach and impact. Banners can be displayed at events, trade shows, conferences, or even outside the business premises. This ensures exposure to a targeted audience actively seeking relevant products or services. Stickers, on the other hand, can be placed in high-traffic areas such as coffee shops, community centers, or local businesses that have partnered with Community Proud. These strategic placements increase the chances of your brand being seen by potential customers, generating awareness and interest.


Measuring the Effectiveness of Your Banners and Stickers

Measuring the success of offline marketing efforts is crucial to understanding their effectiveness and making data-driven decisions. Community Proud offers various methods to track leads and conversions generated by banners and stickers. Techniques like incorporating QR codes or custom URLs in marketing materials enable online tracking and provide valuable insights into customer engagement. Additionally, gathering customer feedback and analyzing engagement metrics help gauge the impact of offline marketing campaigns. By examining return on investment (ROI), businesses can assess the effectiveness of their marketing efforts and make informed decisions moving forward.

The decision of incorporating these elements into your banner or sticker is something that will be discussed in your design process with Community Proud. We will be able to give you our best professional opinion on which option to go with based on your specific business and your goals. We will also be able to advise on how to utilize online services to track this ROI. Don’t hesitate to reach out and let us help you today!

How Community Proud has Already Helped a Local Brand! 

To illustrate the effectiveness of Community Proud’s approach, let’s explore a case study highlighting successful offline marketing campaigns conducted by Community Proud.


Climbing Bines Craft Ale Company

Climbing Bines Craft Ale Company is a fresh-off-the-farm brewery located right in Penn Yan, NY. This beautiful property features a 1.5-acre hop yard that helps the friendly owners, Chris Hansen and Matt Klehammer, provide a variety of locally sourced craft ales. Their main philosophy is sustainable agriculture and environmental consciousness.

When Climbing Bines Craft Ale Company approached Community Proud for help in creating a design for their stickers, we worked alongside them to ensure we were accurately capturing their vision, providing the highest quality of products for their stickers, and working within their budget. These stickers came out beautifully, and you may see them around the Finger Lakes on telephone poles, in business windows, decorating water bottles, or anything in between! 

These stickers prove to be an optimal marketing tool for Climbing Bines, as avid winery and brewery touring individuals of the Finger Lakes could collect their stickers, dawn them on their own personal items, and, inevitably, it would get asked about by those around them whom they could direct back to this growing and beautiful brewery! 

Custom banner printing 

Another instance of offline marketing:

In terms of vinyl bannering, another project taken on by Community Proud includes creating the banners for the political campaign of Chris Missick. Chris Missick is a local winemaker and accomplished lawyer in the Finger Lakes area who proudly ran for political office in 2020. 

Chris trusted Community Proud with the creation of his banners for his political campaign, which was not taken lightly. We worked with Chris to ensure that his vision for his campaign was conveyed in his vinyl bannering, that his banners would be able to withstand the elements outdoors, and on his strategic placement of these banners to ensure the best possible visibility for his voters. 

We also worked with Chris to ensure that he social media channels were represented on these banners to help him grow a following this way. 

We share this instance of our banner creations as we do not limit ourselves to creation for simply businesses. Perhaps, you have a sports team, event, or deal you would like to promote. Our team has worked on a whole host of projects and is ready to take yours on, as well! Please reach out to us today to start working on your vinyl banner promotional project!
