So… what does that mean? It means that 70% of businesses who’re incorporating logo products into their marketing mix are using advertising promotional calendars. It also means that your competitors are likely using these powerful little marketing tools.

With that being said, it is TIME to think about promotional calendars. The year is coming to a close, and it’s time to think about how you can thank your customers for this year’s business.

Calendar advertising is the definition of personal advertising. Whether distributed in person or by mail, the advertising calendar is referred to daily, multiple times becoming an integral part of the recipient’s life.
