May + June Marketing Planner

May is the season of graduations, fresh starts, and new chapters. It’s also the start of SUMMER! The much-anticipated break from school and, for some of us, the appearance of sun and outdoor fun makes May a wonderful, wonderful month. 

The Strategies

Travel-ready: Travel is back and many people are making up for lost time by hitting the road. Logomark has some really fantastic luggage options for organizing all of your things for the journey ahead. Thinking more executive? Check out these options from Gemline for a design for literally every preference.

Teamtastic: Many companies organize bonding opportunities over the summer months. Maybe it is a company softball team, family picnic, or tickets to a local event. Nothing says “team player” like some team swag.  S&S really brought it with their athleisure catalog including all the options for a great team apparel piece. Make sure to focus on a fun graphic to really hit a home run with this team gear!

Digital Detox: After a busy few months indoors, it is always a good time to break out from the screen and get in touch with nature. Exploring trails and national parks has become a popular pastime for many consumers. Our favorite checklist for any hike is a packable jacket like these options from AlphaBroader,  a great picnic blanket like this one from Terry Town, and a snazzy water bottle from Tervis


From Our Team:

One of the best things about this time of year is the opening up of farmers’ markets and fairs in our neighborhood. You can get anything there; produce, baked goods, art, and local favorites. It is a great way to shop in the community and it is never short on branded merch.

Does your local coffee shop have a booth? Maybe they need branded cups or sleeves. How about the local co-op? Do they need eco-friendly bags for produce? And if all else fails, everyone needs stickers! Want your brand to be seen? Offer market totes to the organizers with your logo. The Rume Classic Medium Tote from Gemline is always good to keep on hand. Five stars, highly recommend!

Oh, and a good time to note, using ZOOMcatalogs means you’re able to work from anywhere. Why not take advantage and hit the beach or at least your patio?
