Default Funny Marketing Ideas (really)

summer is coming and while I was searching for my flip flops I remembered this idea I read some time ago:
engrave your url on the sole of the flip flops - so if you walk on the beach you will leave a "real footprint"
(and there is no way google can detec this footprint lol)

Basically you have to walk up and down the beach day and night to make this work ;-)))
but say you live in a touristic area and own a bar or nightclub -
you could give away flip flops (cheaply produced - they only need to last a season) with the url printed on it - people can register on your website
your website for special offers, happy hours etc with their mobile number

some time ago I visited the biggest gift related fair in europe and everybody had those really cute bags (basically plastic bags but
with a nice 70 design)
so I asked them where I could get those and was told that the booth xyz was giving them away for free -
once I got one of those bags people started to ask me where they could get those bags (no joke)
stuff like this works

what do you think

LOL, GREAT ideas... Now, I think this would work well if it is website that sells gifts or actual physical products. When it comes to virtual products, I don't know if it will be that effective. But great idea nonetheless.

I wonder, so did Bjoern30 use any of the services/products that came from the booth xyz. A unique idea could sell more, even better if it costs little, than pouring and feeding promotional freebees to the mass because of its uniqueness. I used to attend tradeshows all the time and didn't care much about the promotional materials after a while.

I dont think this is the point - you need to create awareness first...
