I am always trying to think up clever ways to promote my blog. Business cards are boring (MOO MiniCards, however, are not). Mugs are overused. T-shirts have to be done in just the right way and made with just the right material or no one will wear them.
I do, however, like the idea of edible promotional items – chocolates, candies, fruit baskets, etc. Food is something that everybody can appreciate and customized food will definitely help you stand out. As the common saying goes, “the way to get people to read your blog is through their stomachs” (or something like that).
I recently had the opportunity to test out the My Fruit Roll-Ups design process. Essentially you pick a picture, add a message, and then click “order.” When I first began creating my design, I was a bit disappointed to find that I didn’t have the option of uploading my own picture/logo (wouldn’t that be fun?). I ended up choosing a laptop as my “image” and adding my blog URL as the “message.” Although I haven’t received the roll-ups yet, I liked the way that they turned out “on screen” (what do you think?) and I think they will be a cute way to get the word out about my site to other mommies.
In closing, I have “three wishes” to share with the My Fruit Roll-Up Powers-That-Be:
- I would appreciate just a little more space for my “message.” I could barely fit my URL in.
- I’d love to upload my own logo/design/image.
- Anything you can do to make fruit roll-ups healthier would be fantastic. Pump in more fruit and take out all the sugar and “bad stuff.”
My Fruit Roll-Ups can also be used for a variety of special occasions – 1st birthday party favors, creative thank yous for teachers, and more. Each box contains 30 customized roll-ups and costs $29.99 (shipping charges vary).
