HOW CAN I USE A GRAND OPENING BALLOON FOR A PROMOTION?

Many people see giant custom inflatables as they are driving around town and have no idea how to use one of these or even how to get one of these for their grand opening promotion.

The easy answer is most retailers use a full service outdoor promotions company that actually has many types of products to offer but is particularly well versed in the manufacturing, installation and maintenance of this form of inflatable advertising. While a retailer can design, sub contract the manufacturing of the inflatable and then have their own people install the inflatable, most opt to use a professional company that belongs to the IADA (Inflatable Advertisers Dealers Association).

Many of these companies have been members for over 30 years and supply quality products that meet the demands of outdoor conditions. They are also well versed in city codes, working with inspectors; proper rooftop installation and they will also carry at least a $1million liability insurance policy to safeguard your interests.

Using a seasoned professional inflatable advertising company provides the best of all worlds including a huge selection of custom inflatables, grand opening balloons, and suggestions for best practices for inflatable advertising. The larger inflatable advertising companies know the city codes well and have a great reach across regions and the nation with the ability to install and maintain multiple locations simultaneously.

Same Store Sales

WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH RETAILERS FOR OVER 30 YEARS ON GRAND OPENINGS, SALES AND PROMOTIONS BUT ONE OF THE DAILY TASKS OF RETAIL MARKETERS IS TO INCREASE SAME TORE SALES ON A DAY ON AND DAY OUT BASIS.

OUR RETAIL CUSTOMERS LIKE WENDY’S USE GIANT INFLATABLE BALLOONS, FLAGS, PENNANTS AND CUSTOM BANNERS TO CREATE A NEW LOOK AND A NEW IMAGE. WENDY’S IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF USING THEIR FAMOUS BRANDED WENDY’S CUP TO LEAD INTO SPRING AND SUMMER.

EVEN THOUGH THEIR FROSTY IS A GREAT SUMMER TREAT, THEY ARE ABLE TO LEVERAGE THE BRANDED CUP THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO GRAB CUSTOMERS ATTENTION TO THEIR LOCATION AND REMIND THEM OF THEIR PRESENCE IN THE MARKET PLACE.

CUSTOMERS REGULARLY SEE A 10% TO 15% PICK UP DURING A SPECIALIZED INFLATABLE PROMOTION AND THE KEY IS TO KEEP THE IMAGE OF THE STORE FRONT EVER CHANGING AND FRESH TO KEEP THE CUSTOMER ENTICED AS THEY ARE DRIVING BY.

A COMBINATION OF FLAGS, BANNERS AND GIANT INFLATABLE ADVERTISING CAN BE COMBINED WITH A CREATIVE MIX OF WINDOW GRAPHICS AND WIND DANCERS TO CONTINUE TO CREATE A FRESH AND INSPIRING IAMGE TO HELP DRIVE SAME STORE SALES VOLUME.

At 360 Auto Display USA, we offer an awesome “Car Spinner”, which is a revolving platform that lifts your vehicle 10′ into the air and rotates it for maximum eye-catching exposure. It’s less complicated than it looks, too- vehicles can be quickly changed by your lot staff to keep the display fresh as you move inventory in and out.

They are easy to set up and install, and are even easy to purchase online from the comfort of your laptop.
