The laws, they are a-changin’… especially in California, where Printerbees central office is located. When you go the grocery store, plastic bags are no longer allowed. You have to bring your own reusable bags or buy them at the store.
This policy is based on evidence that plastic bags are damaging to the environment in a variety of ways. It’s not just California, either – a variety of states are looking at how to limit or eliminate the use of plastic bags.
Fortunately, that means you have a significant opportunity as a Realtor®. People need reusable bags, you need to build your brand… it’s a match made in heaven!
Repetition is Key to Marketing Success
Research shows that a prospect has to hear about you or see your name 7 – 10 times before they actually remember you. If you aren’t sharing your brand consistently, you aren’t going to be successful.
It can be expensive to keep making impressions in memorable ways. With custom imprinted reusable bags, however, you’re not putting in all the effort yourself. You’re using the power of your prospects and customers to spread the word about you.
When you can get custom reusable bags affordably (hint: we just might be running a special!) they are an excellent way to spread the word about who you are and what you do.
How People Can Use Reusable Bags
Custom imprinted bags go far beyond the grocery store. There are a huge variety of ways that you and your prospects can use these bags:
- Deliver goodies to neighbors with them
- Return borrowed books in one
- Use them for trick-or-treating in the fall
- Use a reusable bag as a beach tote
- Drop off your child and a reusable bag filled with all the diaper bag necessities
- Carry workout clothes in them
- Pack a picnic lunch in a reusable bag
- Use a reusable bag as a gift bag for a birthday or holiday
- Use one as a tote when decluttering around your home
- Put your recycling in reusable bags to take to the recycling center
- Donate food to a food pantry in a reusable bag – they can hand it out to clients!
That’s just the beginning – there are so many creative ways to use these bags! Everyone can use more storage. Why not give them something that fills their needs and reminds them of your business at the same time?
When People Use Your Bags, Everyone Notices
People may not immediately notice on a conscious level, but every time they see a bag with your brand name and company information, it makes an impression. That mental imprint builds over time.
When they need to sell a home, and they think, “Do I know any Realtors®?” your name will come to mind. They might not even know why! But because they’ve seen your brand over and over, they’ll think of you.
So, what are you waiting for? If you can provide an inexpensive, helpful, reusable item to your customers and prospects, you have no reason not to! It will help everyone abide by the law, protect the environment, and build your brand, all at the same time.
